Copper ore is an ore that can be obtained through mining copper rocks, requiring level 1 Mining, in various places around RuneScape. Copper ore, along with tin ore, is one of the first ores a player can mine using the Mining skill.

Copper is required to craft bronze bars. As players increase their Mining level and use higher tier pickaxes, they are able to mine copper at quicker rates.

Copper, like other mining resources, can be stored in an ore box. 100 copper can be stored in a bronze ore box or higher. This capacity be increased by 20 at level 7 Mining and a further 20 with the completion of the Everything Is Oresome achievement.
