Copper ore detail.png

Copper ore is an ore which can be smelted in a furnace along with a piece of tin ore to create a bronze bar. Copper ore, along with tin ore, are the first ores a player can mine using the Mining skill, and has no requirements to mine. Mining one copper ore grants 17.5 Mining experience. After being mined, a copper rock takes approximately 2 seconds to respawn.

Copper rocks can be found in various mines across the Gielinor. Copper along with tin is mainly used for low level smiths. Many prefer completing the The Knight's Sword quest, a free-to-play quest that grants 12,725 Smithing experience, enough experience to increase a player's level 1 Smithing to level 29 Smithing.

Power training Mining (members)[edit | edit source]

For members, the best location to power mine copper is the mine at west Falador. This is the closest location for members to mine the ore near a bank. Although this method requires the use of a 5 Agility shortcut. The mine south of the Piscatoris Fishing Colony is another plausible method, closest rocks to a bank that does not require use of a shortcut.

Smithing[edit | edit source]

A player can smelt copper ore into a bronze bar through the Smithing skill by using it on a furnace along with a tin ore, granting 6.2 Smithing experience; this requires level 1 Smithing. Bronze bars can then be used on anvils with a hammer to create bronze items (some things may need more than 1 bar, such as a battleaxe).
