Copper is, after iron , the most abundant ore on the Overworld; it is over 3 times as abundant as tin . It is used in Machine Frames and in the Crusher. Being the ingredient for the Crusher makes it a very important early-game ore, because, once you have the Crusher, you can double ores rather easily.
As stated above, Copper is used as an ingredient for some of the machines.
