Silver ore detail.png

Silver ore is a type of ore that can be obtained through the Mining skill in various places throughout RuneScape; requiring level 20 Mining, and granting 40 Mining experience.

After mining a silver rock, the ore can be smelted to produce a silver bar, granting the player 13.7 Smithing experience. Silver bars can be used to craft various types of jewellery through the Crafting skill. Silver ore is popular on the Free-to-play servers, as it can be crafted into Tiaras for Crafting experience.

Noted ores can occasionally be found inside barrels in the Viyeldi Caves.

Mine locations

One of the best locations to mine silver ore is in the Crafting Guild, found just south-west of Falador, requiring a level 40 Crafting to enter. Players who have completed the Hard Falador Tasks may access a bank deposit box inside the guild to quickly bank their mined ores. A nearby bank chest can be found at the Clan Camp.

Before the mining and smithing update, three silver rocks could be found within the Dwarven Mine hidden mine, requiring level 15 Dungeoneering to enter. A bank deposit box can be found inside, making this a quick way to mine and bank gold, mithril, and phantasmite.
