Universal Copper’s CEO, Clive Massey stated that his team’s ongoing ability to recover long intervals of porphyry copper mineralization at Poplar is the result of several months of focused technical work including drill core re-logging and detailed geological modeling.

“The three-dimensional targeting framework is coming into focus for the first time in the project history and Universal Copper intends to leverage newly defined geological controls on mineralization to continue to produce robust porphyry copper intercepts. Our objective is to increase the grade and tonnage of the Poplar Resource and establish it as a top-tier road accessible deposit in the Central British Columbia Porphyry-Epithermal Belt.”

Universal Copper Ltd. (UNV) is a Canadian-based copper exploration company focused on the acquisition and exploration of copper properties. 

The 615.6 sq km (61,566 hectare) Poplar Project is located southwest of Houston, British Columbia and hosts a current undiluted indicated mineral resource of 152.3 million tonnes grading 0.32 per cent copper, 0.009 per cent molybdenum, 0.09 gram per tonne gold and 2.58 g/t silver with an undiluted inferred mineral resource of 139.3 million tonnes grading 0.29 per cent copper, 0.005 per cent molybdenum, 0.07 g/t gold and 4.95 g/t silver.
