Copper is a metal resource added by IC² and generated as ore between layers 10 and 70, with max concentration on level 40[?], usually in groups of up to 10 blocks. It requires a stone pickaxe or better to mine.
These forms of copper are seen during ore processing:

Copper is by far one of the most widely used metals in IC², thanks to the frequency of Copper Cables, Electronic Circuits, and normal and dense copper plates used in crafting recipes. Nearly every mod item uses copper either directly or as a subcomponent, with the exception of things like the Iron Furnace and the MFE.
Crafting-wise, copper ingots are used mostly for blocks to cut into plates more quickly, but also for the Induction Furnace.
Unsmelted copper can also be mixed with tin in a 3:1 ratio to produce Bronze, another useful metal.
It's small, brown and shiny!
Yes, you are RIGHT, it's Copper!
But not that copper, you're thinking about... It's the best Copper in this WORLD!
Copper Ore is better than iron ore or something like that...
It is useful for our machines and for Cables!
To mine it, you need at least a stone pickaxe.
SO BUY IT... or mine it... whatever....
Our company is aware that iron ore is often valued higher than copper ore. People who think so are absolutely right. Then why did we lie to you? Because we can! HAYO!
