An iron rock is a protruding rock containing iron. A player with a Mining level of 15 or higher can mine iron ore from rocks found in various mines, granting 35 Mining experience for each ore mined. After being mined, an iron rock takes 5 seconds to respawn.

Iron is the most popular ore that free-to-play players power-mine for experience. Using a Rune pickaxe with a high Mining level, a player can extract the iron ore from the rock in one strike, while mining copper, tin, or clay takes two or three strikes.

BankingEdit

Iron ore rocks that are close to a bank include:

  1. Talk to Kazgar and have him take you to the mines.
  2. Mine until your inventory is full of ore.
  3. Go to Mistag and have him show you out of the mines.
  4. Go into the Lumbridge Castle basement through the hole and bank at the Culinaromancer's Chest if Recipe for Disaster is partially completed, or bank at the Lumbridge Castle bank on the top floor if not.
  5. Deposit all the ore and then go back to the mines and repeat.

Respawn rateEdit

Iron rock spawns at a standardised spawn rate, which is 5.0 seconds 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.
