Copper Ore is one of the Resources found in the Temperate Biome.

Sources[]

Copper ore blocks only exist in the Temperate Biome, usually in moderately large nodes surrounded by vacuum or an atmosphere of Carbon Dioxide. Strips of copper ore blocks can also line cavities. To a lesser extent, isolated blocks can be found buried in natural blocks.

Copper ore can be found in geodes.

Some Meteor Showers bring Copper Ore in Space Biome.

Copper ore can also be recovered from Space Missions on Rocky Asteroids.

Digging[]

Like many other natural blocks, copper ore blocks can be dug out by Duplicants, producing a high pitch noise similar to that produced when cutting metal.
