Copper is one of the most used metals in the world, and the first one that humans started to use. But have you ever wondered how it’s mined? Copper is a chemical element with the symbol Cu and atomic number 29. It is a soft, malleable, and ductile metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity. A freshly exposed surface of pure copper has a pinkish-orange color. Wikipedia

I was born in Rome, New York, home of the Revere Copper mills — maker of Revereware — and returned there yesterday briefly. Your article stood out to me because it was the first time I went there in about a year, and I found myself looking around the area architecture, wondering tho bought metalware forged by them (roofs, signage, etc).
