So the first few copper bits i found loose on the surface, there were surface veins under them, be the further i go south the more unlikely this is a thing. 

Is this a generation thing when you move further from spawn?
or should i dig deeper?
or am i just getting really unlucky with surface copper?

This, mostly.

While it's not uncommon to have the copper generate right under the dirt layer, it doesn't have to. It can generate as deep as the tenth rock block down. Meaning, if you dig straight down for twelve blocks (three dirt and nine stone) you should see it. If you don't, perhaps you missed the disc; try a different location a few blocks away. Ideally you would try to find the middle between all the nugget rocks you found up top.

Thanks i'll give that a try, i've been digging roughly in a 9x9 under the nugget locations. The ones that have been missing veins are ones that seem to have the fewest surface bits.
