I have over 1K rune bars and like 400 rune ores, that now the prices have tanked wiht the new mining, but I listened to the update and it talked about doing something to rune armor that is now salvage plates or something and those you can sell to not lose money with the update.  How does this work?  Also I tried the new tier 90 ore and it is pointless with my dragon pick, how do I get the new axes and what is now profitable to mine and smith and what is the GP per hour to see if it is worth it.  I used to just mine the two rune ores when recharging my glories and handing in my daily tasks, but now they are gone.

Sadly the salvage only works for armor and weapons that you had before the update. For reasons unknown to me it did not work on ores or bars. So your rune ores and bars have probably drastically decreased in value. For your other questions I would suggest to search them in social media, there are tons of people asking those same questions.

The reasons for that is simple:

They are not equivalents to each other. Salvage is an end-product equivalent, whilst the bars and ores are resources. Therefore, they were replaced with an equivalent on the drop-tables: Stone Spirits.

Furthermore, the end-products like armour and weapons were almost all at alchemy value. To prevent the loss of bank value for people with the adjusted alchemy floors, almost all smith-able weapons and armour were replaced to preserve that.

 

@brad:

For the new pickaxes, you should be able to smith them. You will need a tier equivalent pickaxe or better to mine the new ores efficiently.

 

Most ore rocks have either been removed, replaced or moved elsewhere. The idea here is to get a few specific spots where it would be effective to mine, so people would group up and socialise whilst training the skill.

so is my best bet to smith them into  rune items that have the highest alch value per bar?

Should agree with Lioness.
