Copper Ore is a natural resource obtained through mining. It is combined with Coal in a Blast Furnace to process into Molten Copper. In later stages of the game, Copper Ore can be processed into Copper Ore Crushed in the Crusher before smelting to increase material efficiency. Smelting of Copper Ore, along with Iron Ore, are the primary sources of Slag.

Island reserves

Main article: Home Island

Each Home Island contains varying amounts of natural resources. This amount is modified by the resources size modifier on the Map Selection screen while the amount which can be extracted per tile is further affected by the ore mining yield modifier on the Game Difficulty screen. Neither modifier can be changed once the island has been founded.

It should be noted that most of the above natural resources are non-renewable, though the following exceptions apply:

  • Dirt can be created by dumping Compost onto the ground.
  • Sand can be created nonfrom Rock by processing it in a Crusher to produce Gravel, then crushed again into Sand.
    • Rock itself is non-renewable on the Home Island but can be mined infinitely from the Rock Mine.
    • While non-renewable, it should be noted that it is very unlikely that the island will run out of Rock before either Iron Ore or Copper Ore.
  • Groundwater is replenished by rain.
  • Crude Oil consumption can potentially be avoided in the late game using the Biodiesel technology for Diesel and Naphtha Reforming for Naphtha.
