Start off by teleporting to the Mining Camp. This can be achieved by clicking on the Mining skill in your skill tab. Select "Teleport: Mining Camp". In this area you will find all the rocks ranging from Copper up to Rune and also a bank. First go to the Mining Instruction.
Buy the Bronze and Rune Pickaxe Equip the Bronze Pickaxe and add the Rune Pickaxe to your toolbelt. See image:
Alright, now you are ready to level up your Mining
2. REGULAR TRAINING
As mentioned before, in the Mining Area you will find all the rocks that you need ranging from Copper up to Rune. In the table below, you will find a overview of the XP gained per ore and the required ore that needs to be collected to reach level 99. Note the different Donator Multiplier levels. Start mining the ores and bank them when filled up in the nearby bank

3. STARDUST TRAINING (PERSONAL PREFERENCE)
It is also possible to start collecting Stardust when you've reached level 80. Star Dust can be used to buy a Dragon Pickaxe (500 Stardust), Coal (2 Stardust) Godsword Blade (3000 Stardust) or a Barrows Set (5000 Stardust) at the Stardust Shop in the Mining Camp.
Stardust can be collected by mining a Crashed Star. The Crashed Star is one of the random events on the server. It spawns every now and then in a random location in the world. You will be notified if a new Crashed Star is located in the chat box. You can also check the Quest Tab to see if there is a Crashed Star, and if so, the location is mention too.
Teleport to the location and start mining the Star. You wil receive loads of Gems so you will probably have to bank now and then. There is also a chance of getting an uncut Onyx. The amount Stardust that you get from a Crashed Star can reach up to roughly 1000 Stardust if you solo it.
The reason why I prefer this method compared to the traditional method, is that you can get items like Barrows and a Dragon Pickaxe. But more importantly, this method is WAY WAY WAY more AFK'ble compared to the previous method. And the amount of XP gained is quite decent!
