Universal Copper Ltd. is a Canadian-based copper exploration company focused on the acquisition and exploration of high-quality copper assets in favourable jurisdictions. The Company’s management team has many years of experience in exploration, finance, and efficient public company management.

Universal’s current focus is the Poplar Copper Project, one of the most advanced pre-production copper projects in British Columbia. Recent drilling conducted by Universal Copper indicates the known area of discovery is open laterally and at depth. A 2012 Historic Resource estimate includes Indicated Mineral Resources of 131 million tonnes at 0.31% Cu, 0.009 % Mo, 0.09g/t Au and 2.39 g/t Ag; and Inferred Mineral Resources of 132 million tonnes at 0.27 % Cu, 0.005 % Mo, 0.07 g/t Au and 3.75 g/t Ag. The 2012 historic resource incorporated 300 drill holes totaling over 46 thousand meters of drilling.

The largest exploration potential lies outside the historic resource within the plus 39,000-hectare property, where a historic exploration program of soil sampling and limited drilling identified nine copper targets. A 2009 Airborne EM / magnetic survey confirmed the potential of these nine targets. A 2017 Long Wave InfraRed (LWIR) survey supported the airborne geophysics and also identified an underexplored regional hydrothermal alteration corridor which hosts a number of the known targets as well as newly identified targets.

We see Universal as an excellent way to leverage an investment in the copper sector as the price continues to increase as demand out strips supply.
