Copper Mining and Manufacturing From the Largest Deposits in the World

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

  1. 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).

      Good afternoon. I am familiar with the cookware, with its copper bottoms. How do you feel about being from a famous place? I am glad you returned to your hometown and enjoyed it as a tourist, with eyes of surprise.
      Cheers, and thanks for stopping by and sharing your adventure.
