Iron OreEdit

Iron ore is another quite common ore, and is the third most common ore in Minescape, after Copper Ore and Coal Ore.

It is used for the production of either Iron Bars at level 15 Smithing (requiring 1 Iron Ore) or Steel Bars at level 30 Smithing (requiring 1 Iron Ore and 2 Coal Ores)

To mine Iron ore, you will need a Mining level of 15, each iron ore mined will net you 35 XP, it is advisable to smelt Iron Ore into Iron Bars instead of Steel Bars, as in the long run, the time spent mining the Coal Ore needed for Steel Bars will get you more Iron Bars, earning you more XP in both Mining, and Smithing.
