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 requires level 1 Mining.

Copper rocks can be found in various mines across RuneScape.

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.

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 1 Smithing experience; this requires level 1 Smithing. Bronze bars can then be used on anvils to create bronze items, though some things may need more than 1 bar, such as a bronze battleaxe.

Beginners sometimes mistake copper ore as the unrefined form of a "copper bar"; this is not true.
