VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 15, 2021 /(“Universal Copper” or the “Company”) ( )(FSE:3TA1) is pleased to announce a drilling crew and geological team have been mobilized to carry out the 2021 drilling program at the Company’s flagship Poplar Copper Project (“Poplar”), located southwest of Houston, B.C.
The Company is initially planning a 3,000-metre drill program to test the depth potential and expand the historic resource area.
Clive Massey, Universal Copper’s CEO and President commented, “Finally after several delays beyond our control we are starting our drilling program on the Poplar. Our last two drilling programs increased the indicated tonnage on the property by 21.3 million tonnes at 0.32% copper. Our crew has worked hard to prepare for the start of the program, and we look forward to the drilling on the new copper targets. The Company believes Poplar is presently undervalued and sees this as a perfect time to leverage value with its Poplar Project. A continually strengthening copper price will add value to the project as well.”
Drill Program Objectives
The objectives of the initial phase of the drilling program are:
- Expand the copper mineralization to depth
- Expand the limits of the higher grade mineralization within the historic resource.
The 61,600 hectare Poplar Project 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 and 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. The mineral resource estimate has a cut-off grade of 0.20% copper. Universal Copper cautions investors mineral resources, which are not mineral reserves, do not have demonstrated economic viability.
Poplar lies in an historic mining region, located 35km from the Huckleberry Mine and 42km from Equity Silver Mine, where low snowfalls will allow year round work. The road accessible property is bisected by a 138 Kva Hydro electric line and lies 88km from Houston and 400km from the deep-water port at Prince Rupert by rail.
The technical content of this New Release has been reviewed and approved by R. Tim Henneberry, P.Geo (BC) a member of the Company’s Advisory Board and a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.
