If you are all interested in doing some mining together we can get a group together, and clean out a mine in 5-10m; and then gate out to the next mine. Splitting all ingots at the end, we have done some things like this back in the "Miners of Britain." Usually we would have 1 smelter, and the rest of the people just mine and drop ores. It goes pretty quick and is a lot more efficient than mining alone.

If you've got some cool screenies from your mining times alone or with guild feel free to post.

Cleaned out the North Mines (mine here at your own risk!)
Proclamation of the King of North Britain



MetalCorp & I did about an hour and a half of mining, MetalCorp was afk (but not mining) for about a half an hour and we still got 2k ingots. Yup, we're fast! MetalCorp had 2 guys mining ;). If we can get a good group together we should be able to get 4-5k ingots in one hour. My plan.. 10 minutes per mining area, 4 people, 4 mines (Dagger Forge Outpost, North Mines Outpost, North Britain Mines, & Mt. Kendall), 1 hour = 4k ingots (1k per person). I suspect it will take 20 minutes to get organized, gate around, and split up ingots at the end. If we have time I'd like to hit up some other mining areas (caves!) which I will have runes for that have similar yields to these mines. I recommend making an iron only miner 64.9 mining locked, it makes mining, ore clean up, and splitting quicker. You can always mine your colored ores on your GM Miner.

One of my favorite memories of when I first started playing UO in 99 was me and some friends just mining, so this would be something I'd love to do

It's because that ore has been drenched in the blood of Noobs!

Dren & Co., gee, this almost makes me want to mine again; at least, I'm thinking about it ...

I remember on OSI I used to open gates at WBB to the AW spawn spot and then dispel the gate when someone walked through. Would then recall there, pick up their stuff and go back to WBB wearing all their gear. Ahh... memories.
