Runite ore is obtained from mining runite ore rocks, requiring level 85 Mining, and grants 125 Mining experience. Runite can be smelted in a furnace with 8 coal ores and 1 runite ore to form a rune bar, requiring level 85 Smithing. Rune bars can be smithed into various types of rune weapons and armour.
Using the superior locator, a reward from Mobilising Armies, players can teleport to one of five runite mines across RuneScape. Players should be aware that two out of the five possible locations are within the Wilderness, and the player may encounter player killers (PKers); no warning will be given upon activation of the locator.

An alternative to the Wilderness is the Mining guild resource dungeon. This mine is more popular because it is much more safe, and as such it can be very hard to find a rock that hasn't already been mined. The release of this mining site more than doubled the number of non-member runite rocks; the following oversupply of ores significantly deflated the price of Runite ore.
For members, several other less dangerous options exist to mine runite, including the Heroes' Guild, Keldagrim north mine, and the Neitiznot runite vein. These ores are often mined and as a result are usually depleted. If the voice of Seren is active in the Trahaearn clan district in Prifddinas, runite rocks can become harmonised and are similar to gold and coal deposits in the Living Rock Cavern. Harmonised runite rocks allow multiple ores to be collected from one rock by multiple players at once until the rock deactivates.
