AbstractThis invention provides a composite conductor having excellent strength, flexing resistance and corrosion resistance, a production method thereof and a cable employing the same composite conductor. A corrosion resistant layer is formed of Au, Ag, Sn, Ni, solder, Zn, Pd, Sn--Ni alloy, Ni--Co alloy, Ni--P alloy, Ni--Co--P alloy, Cu--Zn alloy, Sn--Bi alloy, Sn--Ag--cu alloy, Sn--Cu alloy or Sn--Zn alloy in the thickness of 0.5 μm or more on an external periphery of a core made of copper-metal fiber conductor. A wire material made of the copper-metal fiber conductor is subjected to area reduction processing. In the middle of the area reduction processing or after the area reduction processing is completed, corrosion resistant layer is formed on the periphery of the wire material in the thickness of 0.5 μm or more by plating with Au, Ag, Sn, Ni, solder, Zn, Pd, Sn--Ni alloy, Ni--Co alloy, Ni--P alloy, Ni--Co--P alloy, Cu--Zn alloy, Sn--Bi alloy, Sn--Ag--Cu alloy, Sn--Cu alloy or Sn--Zn alloy.
