The South-east Varrock mining site is a good low to medium level mine. It is also arguably one of the closest free-to-play mines in relation to a bank (along with the Dwarven Mine), which made it popular for power-miners who wished to bank the iron ore that they obtained until Mining and Smithing Rework, however, competition for iron ore here made it hard for low levelled players to get iron ore.
After Mining and Smithing Rework, amount of copper and tin rocks was reduced and iron rocks were replaced with new mithril and adamantite rocks. Instead, iron ore can be mined at the nearby South-west Varrock mining site. By the way, south-east Varrock and Rimmington mines are now the only free-to-play areas where adamantite ore can be mined.
The mine has no resident monsters, making it suitable for newer players, or players with a low combat level. However, there is a level 6 Giant rat slightly to the north of the mine which is aggressive to players level 12 or lower. To the south, there is a level 19 Black bear and a level 15 Unicorn, but neither of them are aggressive.
The nearest bank is the East Varrock Bank.
Distributed throughout the mine there are:
