Copper ore detail

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 requires level 1 Mining.

Copper rocks can be found in various mines across DarkScape. Mining a copper ore grants 17.5 Mining experience for each ore mined.

With a Divination level of at least 17, 3 copper ore or tin ore may be transmuted into 1 iron ore. This costs 2 flickering energy and yields 3.7 Divination experience.

Copper along with Tin is mainly used for smithing beginners. Many prefer completing the The Knights Sword quest, an easy quest that grants 12,725 Smithing experience, enough experience to increase a player's smithing level from 1 to 29, 1 level away from steel bars. Beginners mistake copper ore as the unrefined form of a "copper bar", this is not true, as copper ore can only become a bronze bar with a smithing level of 1 and a tin ore.


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). Copper drops in the Al Kharid activity centre are common.
