Powering The New Millennium

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

Our objective is to build shareholder value through the acquisition of projects with significant technical merit. The Company's management team has many years of experience in exploration, finance and efficient public company management.

Universal's current focus is on its flagship Poplar Project, one of the most advanced pre-production copper projects in British Columbia with a historic 43-101 resource.


The Poplar Project

The Poplar Project spans 65,817 hectares and is bisected by a 138 Kva Hydro electric line, and accessible by road. The property is located in a historic mining region, 35km from the Huckleberry Mine and 42km from Equity Silver. The property is also accessible via rail – only 88km from Houston or 400km to the deep-water port at Prince Rupert. Typical snowfall consists of 150cm on an annual basis, making year-round work possible.

Historic Exploration

Initially discovered from outcrop exposure in the early 1970’s, the Poplar Project has seen multiple segments of historic exploration including:

  • Soil and till geochemical surveys
  • Ground magnetics and IP surveys
  • Airborne magnetics and electro-magnetic surveys
  • Diamond drilling: 39,648 meters in 147 holes in Poplar Deposit area resulted in calculation of historic resource
  • Additional 135 diamond or percussion holes totaling 6,817 meters over remaining property
  • 2004 Metallurgical Study – 93% Cu recovery, 81% Mo recovery

2021 Proposed Work Program

Follow up on outstanding previously announced drill results from 2019 campaign with a 6,000 meter drilling program this spring
  • Continue testing the depth potential of the know area of discovery
  • Test strike extensions indicated by previous deep IP survey
Initiate systematic evaluation of historic sampling, Airborne EM and LWIR surveys completed last year
  • Initially focus on coincidental anomalies and historic sampling of outlying copper occurrences for summer 2021 exploration program
