Copper metallurgy

​
​
The benefits of this newly discovered material were given by it's versatility. Although copper tools were less durable than stone tools, the manufacturing process was less time consuming, and they were easy to recycle.
Copper ingots, used in tool crafting, are made by extracting copper from mines and melting it into clay molds at a smelter. Copper tools can be melted down into ingots as well.
