The World of RuneScape

The Dwarven Mine

Thank Guthix for dwarves! If it wasn’t for their mining skills, so many precious ores and rocks would still be locked away in the ground, away from the reach of humans and other races.

Long ago, dwarven prospectors found a huge reserve of minerals in the rocks between Falador and the Ice Mountain. The dwarves' persistence and the hard work of generations since have created the Dwarven Mines that can be seen today, which the dwarves are fiercely proud of. An incredible achievement.


Dwarven Mine

The Dwarven Mine is situated deep under the ground between Falador and Ice Mountain. There are several entrances to the Dwarven Mine. The mine can be accessed from the north by climbing down the ladder in the southern foothills of Ice Mountain. There are two entrances in Falador: one south of the bank and one east of the Party Room. The final entrance can only be used by those with access to the Mining Guild. Entrance to the guild requires a Mining level of 60.

Points of Interest

Dwarven Mine

There are a number of dwarf miners and scorpions to battle against, should you decide to try your luck in battle. But instead of fighting, why not improve your Mining and Crafting skills on the minerals surrounding you? The Dwarven Mines are full of tin, clay, iron, coal, gold, mithril and adamantite. Players can also practice their Smithing skills on ores that they smelt.

There is enormous scope to trade with the dwarves that reside in the Dwarven Mine. They can provide you with essential tools and powerful weapons. Those that spend a lot of time building their Mining skill up to level 60 can access the Mining Guild – a scorpion-free mining area with a massive bounty of coal and mithril to discover!

A series of caverns has recently been discovered towards the northern end of the mine. There is a rope down to it near to the mine cart tracks. Running ice water from the melting peaks of Ice Mountain has opened up these caverns, which have been closed off for so long that a strange species of living rocks has evolved down there.

The caverns offer excellent opportunities for experienced miners (and fishers). Be warned, however, that the living rocks are tough, aggressive and not fond of visitors from above.




Drogo is one of the most respected dwarves around Gielinor. He spends his time running the Mining Emporium, and earns a lot of money trading in ores and metal bars. Though he puts an incredible amount of hard work into his daily activities, he’s no pushover.

Drogo can be found in the north of the mine, in the cave to the east of the Ice Mountain entrance.

Hammerspike Stoutbeard

Hammerspike Stoutbeard

Would you believe there’s a hierarchy in the Dwarven Mines? Corruption runs through the rocks as much as precious minerals do. The self-styled Godfather of the dwarf gangsters is Hammerspike Stoutbeard, a ruthless, mannerless brute with an incredibly short temper.

Hammerspike can be found in the far west of the mine.
