I promised a few people that after 99 Mining I would make a video of me Mining... this is that video.
The video demonstrates me mining, superheating and dropping gold bars, as well as moving to new gold rocks, activating urns and being attacked by the rock creatures and how to respond. With that being said, I manage about 90-95k Mining xp, and about 60-65k Smithing and Magic xp per hour, including banking and changing rocks etc.
Not much to say that won't be stating the obvious but what ever.
I'm Mining in the Living Rock Caverns (LRC) which are located under the Dwarven Mines. There are four gold rock deposits that require a mining level of 80 to mine and will give either 1-2 ores at a time (or 1-3 ores if you're wearing Varrock armour 2-4), each ore giving a base of 65 Mining xp.
Things to bring:
A dragon pickaxe, it is approx. 15% better than a rune pickaxe and highly recommended.
A staff of fire, lava staff or steam staff should be used to replace the fire runes required to cast the superheat item spell. The superheat item spell when cast on a gold ore will grant 22.5 Smithing xp (or 56.2 xp with goldsmith gauntlets, which are obtained after completing the Family Crest quest and highly recommended) and 53 Magic xp.
Goldsmith gauntlets, as mentioned, are obtained from the Family Crest quest and grant 56.2 Smithing xp per gold ore you superheat. These are highly recommended as without them you will be receiving less than half the Smithing xp.
Varrock armour 2-4 will be used as it gives the wearer a chance at receiving an extra ore which stacks with the already existing chance to receive an extra ore from the rock deposits. So instead of receiving 1-2 ores you will have the chance at 1-3 ores.
The golden mining suit is obtained as a reward from the Lava Flow Mines, only the helm, boots and legs are required for Mining and superheating gold ore while the gloves are replaced with the goldsmith gauntlets and the top replaced with Varrock armour (2-4). It gives only a small boost in xp and is not recommended unless you are aiming to go for 200m Mining xp.
Nature runes are a must, food and super energy potions are optional but with very little defence these are a necessity for myself.
Combat bracelet offers a teleport to the monastery slightly north of the Dwarven Mines and is recommended for easy access.
Decorated mining urns can be bought from the G.E., they take approx. 3,125 Mining xp to fill and when activated give 625 Mining xp. Only 10 filled urns can be kept at a time.
