|An ore-full mining rock.|
Mining rocks can be mined outside Oo'glog and Sophanem at level 81 Mining, rewarding red sandstone on successful attempts. 50 red sandstone can be obtained from the Oo'glog red sandstone mine daily. An additional 25 can be obtained daily from the Sophanem red sandstone mine after completion of the Elite Desert Tasks. The daily limit will reset on login, after 00:00 (UTC).
It is possible to mine more than the maximum daily amount with the reward from Shooting Stars, which gives the player a chance of receiving double ore. Assuming the player is mining all the red sandstone available, the effect of the reward given by the shooting stars will allow the player to mine on average 34 extra pieces daily; despite the shooting star bonus granting double ore, the Varrock task rewards will not allow players to mine multiple pieces of red sandstone.
The Resourceful aura can be used to slow the depletion of the rock so that additional red sandstone can be obtained daily, beyond the maximum 50 of Oo'glog, and 25 of Sophanem.
The Collector's insignia can slow the depletion of the Sophanem red sandstone mine. It does not work in the Oo'glog location; this is likely a bug.
