This article is about the Mining skill. For training the skill, see
Mining/Training.
Mining is used for Mining ore, Rune Essence, and gems. Each Mining action takes 3 seconds, and can be reduced by 550% by purchasing pickaxe upgrades, 15% by purchasing the Master of Nature god upgrade, and 0.2 seconds by reaching the 50% Mastery pool checkpoint. The pickaxe upgrade and Master of Nature reductions are multiplicative with each other, applying before the 0.2 second Mastery reduction. 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.

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:
[math] \text{Rock HP}=5 + \text{Mastery Level} + \text{Bonus} [/math]
Where [math]\text{Bonus}[/math] starts at 0, increasing by:
Perfect Swing Potions can be used to give a 1080% chance to not lower rock HP while Mining.

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.
Gems
Each Mining action has a 1% gem find chance, which is increased by 10% (to 1.10%) if the Clue Chasers Insignia is equipped, or to 100% when wearing Gem Gloves. The possible gem drops are shown in the table below:
Potion

Trivia
The source code file for the Mining skill is called rockHitting.js
, which is in contrast to other skills' source files which are named eponymously (i.e., woodcutting.js
for Woodcutting). This used to be case for Mining as well[1], however it turned out that some browsers or extensions block a script called mining.js
, likely in an attempt to prevent unwanted crypto mining, so the file was eventually renamed.
