Copper is the most basic Ore of the Base Metals, and the most common one available. It is relatively soft and malleable, and can be mined with simple, early tools. Copper is used in the crafting recipes of many mods, making it a valuable resource. It can also be used in the crafting of swords, armors, furnaces and crushers.
Copper has two alloys available to it: Bronze and Brass. Copper dust combined with Tin dust results in Bronze. Integration of Copper and Zinc in the same way will create Brass. Copper dust can also be combined with Glass Dust to create Blue Glass Dust.
As with all metals, you can craft a 2x2 square of copper ingots into a placable copper brick block. Copper can be made into buckets and shears, making it the cheapest and most readily-available material to use for such tools. Copper can also be used to craft minecart rails and the 2nd tier versions of the Metallurgy-specific Furnace and Crusher.
