Protect from a mine blast?

I hardly think copper sheathing could do the work of inches of steel on larger warships they are designed to sink.

The copper might have been used to protect the wood before the use of fiberglass from worms like in the olden days.

You could be correct, but I would love to see the evidence and specifications of copper "mine protection".
