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.

Uses

Copper is by far one of the most widely used metals in IC², thanks to the frequency of copper cables, Grid Electronic Circuit.png 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 Grid Iron Furnace.png Iron Furnace and the Grid MFE.png MFE.

Copper ingots are used mostly for blocks to cut into plates more quickly (or in a Grid Metal Former.png Metal Former in Extruding mode for cables), but are also used to craft the Grid Induction Furnace.png Induction Furnace.

Copper item casings are used to craft the Grid Advanced Batpack.png Advanced Batpack and Grid Copper Boiler.png Copper Boiler.

Unsmelted copper can also be mixed with tin in a 3:1 ratio to produce Grid Bronze Dust.png Bronze Dust.

Crafting

Basic crafting is the same for (almost) every metal. Any pre-ingot form, except for the Grid Tiny Pile of Copper Dust.png Tiny Pile of Copper Dust, can be smelted into an ingot.

Smelting anything but dust is a waste of resources, though - check the ore processing page to see how to maximize your output.

9 ingots craft into a block and vice versa.

Dust comes from 9 small piles, but you can't craft small piles out of a single dust like you can craft ingots out of a block.

For parts that you make using this metal, plates and item casings and so forth, there's a page for that already.

HAYO

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!

HAYO!


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....

But HAYO!

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!
