Mining is used for Mining ore, rune essence, and gems. Each Mining action takes 3 seconds, and can be reduced by pickaxe upgrades. Purchasing the Master of Nature god upgrade reduces this time by 20%. These reductions are multiplicative with eachother. Ore and rune essence amounts can be doubled by wearing Mining Gloves with active charges. Raising Mining to level 99 will unlock the Mining Skillcape for purchase from the Shop. Equipping the Mining Skillcape will give 1 bonus Coal Ore for every Mining action.
Mining Mastery has two bonus effects. Every 10 levels it gives it adds a cumulative 1% chance of getting 2 ores instead of 1; this effect is additive with the pickaxe bonus. Each level of Mining mastery also increases rock HP.
Rock HP determines how many ores can be extracted from a rock before it has to regenerate. Maximum rock HP is calculated with this formula:
Perfect Swing Potions can be used to give a 10-80% chance to not lower rock HP while Mining.

Pickaxes are permanent upgrades purchased from the Shop that decrease the amount of time it takes to mine ore by their bonus speed percentage. In addition they provide a chance to double ores.
Higher tiers of ore are unlocked as the player's Mining level increases. Mining Rune Essence yields double the amount of ore, however Gem Gloves will not work when Mining it. To begin Mining Dragonite Ore the player must have at least 270 Mining mastery levels in total.
Each Mining action has a 1% gem find chance, which is increased to 100% when wearing Gem Gloves. The possible gem drops are shown in the table below:
