|Examine||A rocky outcrop.|
An adamantite rock is a rock containing adamantite. A player with a Mining level of 70 or higher can mine adamantite ore from adamantite rocks. Each rock grants 95 Mining experience for each ore mined. After being mined, an adamantite rock takes 4 minutes to respawn. Players may want to employ a world switch tactic due to the scarcity of available ore.
The Bandit Camp Mine contains the most free-to-play adamantite rocks, but it is far from a bank, filled with aggressive hobgoblins, and dangerous since it is in the Wilderness. Hobgoblins will not keep you from mining, but you will still undergo attack from them. Player killers make this even harder because they can attack players who are unprepared. Using a canoe makes this mine more convenient.

- Bandit Camp Mine - 8 rocks
- Edgeville Dungeon Mine - 2 rocks
- South Crandor Mine - 3 rocks
- Lumbridge Swamp Southwest Mine - 2 rocks
The lowest level of the Abandoned Mine has 13 adamantite ore veins, but it requires retracing the steps of the Haunted Mine quest to get the glowing fungus. Note that the fungus cannot be re-stored in the cart. The fungus can be safely dropped while mining to free an inventory slot.
The Jatizso mine is also a good place to mine as there are 11 rocks; however, there are ice trolls to worry about. They are relatively high levels, the males can deal high damage and the females can throw rocks over the rocks you are mining.
The Lletya mine is a decent adamantite mining spot once you have completed Roving Elves and started Mourning's Ends Part I since you will be able to bank at Lletya, which is a small run away, or make use of the Teleport crystal. The mine is small, only containing the 4 adamantite rocks and is completely unguarded except for a small trap at the entrance.

As of 17 July 2014 and according to the Boss Pets and Spawn Rates update:
|“||Spawn rates of pretty much everything in Old School will now be consistent throughout all worlds...[and] resources and monsters now spawn at a standardised rate throughout all worlds regardless of how many people are currently online.||”|
— Mods Alfred, Ash, John C, Mat K, Reach, Ronan & Weath
That means adamant ore spawns at a standardised spawn rate, which is 4 minutes after it was last mined, no matter how many players are on a world. Whether it's zero or 2000 players in a single server, all ore across the game will respawn at the same rate.
