Getting To Motherload Mine (Skilling Teles-Motherload Mine)



The Process:



1. Firstly you want to find an 'Ore Vein' which will present you with 'Pay Dirt' in your inventory.



2. After you get a full Inventory, you want to take your Dirt to the 'Hopper in the Centre of the Mine



3. You then want to Collect your dirt from the Sack to get your Rewards!


-Ores (You can only obtain the ore once you have the mining level)

-Golden Nuggets-

For 100 Golden Nuggets you can pay 'Prospector Pete' to use the 2nd Floor of the mine

This is closer to the hopper which means more XP/Nuggets per hour

I'm sure this'll help out plenty of newer players mate, would be great to mention that it's most efficient to purchase access to the 2nd floor before buying anything else? Experience, nuggets and ores all go up quite a lot like you mentioned! Always appreciate the guides you share 😄
