Just a quick question that will most likely make me look new which I am. But can I use an ingot mold for both molten copper and silver Or would they contaminate each other? And same question with the crucible

Simple answer, would there be any cross contamination?  Yes, but only in the parts per million or less range.  There will always be some molecules left in cracks and pores between pours (intentional punny wording).  But not enough to really notice without high level laboratory testing.
