i believe one of the lumby swamp mines has some good place to powrmine because its rare to find ppl there. For banking ive always liked varrok east mine because its mostly noobs with iron bronze and steel picks. Dwarven mine is not so decent, its always crowded by expreienced miners with rune picks.

Spam much? :aware:

In f2p the best places to mine are at the south  Varrock mine, it has 2 rocks right next to each other. Or the Al-Akhrid mining area, it has 2-3 iron ores right next to each other.

If you were a member you would have more options like the mining area west of the west fally bank(jump over the cracked wall to get there), and since it has 3 iron rocks and a bank nearby its a great place to mine iron. East of Ardougne is a great place to mine iron with plenty of rocks and a bank kinda nearby. And right outside the Piscatoris Fishing Colony is 3-4  iron rocks right next to each other and is almost always empty.

I'd say the best place to mine iron is south of the West Varrock exit. There's 2 iron rocks which you can mine standing between them, and iron respawns pretty fast so you don't spend too much time waiting. You can bank simply by running north and going to West Varrock Bank.

Best member place? Grand Tree. Requires the quest of course. Close bank, it is great.

Best member powermining for iron: Al Kahrid or Adrougne. I only mined at Adrougne for my last 100k to 99 mining since everyone else was in Al Kahrid.

Best f2p powermining spot: Al Kahrid

Best iron banking: Varrock East mine, Dwarven Mines aren't great, but they aren't bad either

That one mine south of Falador. (Can't remember the mine name) It was great to get my mining up, and there's never many people there. And look, people not mentioning it proves it's not well known. :aware:

I enjoy Al-Alkahird (I killed the spelling) for the 3 iron mines making a little triange together.


Perfect for powermining if you can mine iron in one stroke.

In Al-Kharid Mine, there is a triangle of iron that usually people use to powerlevel, they mine all the irons then drop it. You can find someone doing that and pick up their irons, that works =P Or you can mine it.

best place to mine iron is probably to go to an almost deserted world and go to south varrock mine.

The best place to mine iron is south of Piscatoris fishing colony. There are 3 rocks where you don't need to move, no one is ever there, and there is a bank nearby.

But best place in freeplay if you wanted to bank would be both of the south varrock mines, and if you wanted to powermine try al kharid "chasm" mine.

Just a tip as well, I suggest banking all of the iron you mine. I forgot to include that.

For powermining, try Rimmington. It's a totally out of the way location so you'll barely receive competition there, other than the gold rocks that is :aware:

For banking, go to a deserted world and use the Varrock southwest or southeast mine. Every time I go to the west mine, though, I only see low levels mining clay and tin. And whatever low-leveled guy that's mining there is stealing your iron rocks, just have a rune pick and you'll aggravate him. :aware:

I powermine at Al Kharid, there's 3 iron rocks there.
Mine the 3 rocks, drop, repeat. By the time you've dropped your 3 ores, the rock would have just about respawned.
