Cu–Co alloys containing various amounts of copper and cobalt have been synthesized by mechanical alloying at room temperature. The initial component ratio and the value of strain have an effect on the ultimate equilibrium solubility in the system, as well as on the fracture surfaces. The heterogeneity of fractures in the Cu-Co alloys is revealed after the fracture of the alloys with a predominant content of Co and Cu. An increase in strain leads to the formation of a uniformly distributed cleavage in a Cu-based alloy, as well as in the case of originally equiatomic alloys. In addition, the formation of a solid solution based on high-temperature modification of Co has been found.
