Universal Copper Ltd announced the commencement of it's 2019 exploration program at its 62,000 hectare Poplar copper property, southwest of Houston, British Columbia. Prior to executing the 2019 drilling program, Universal is undertaking ground surveys to evaluate a number of the peripheral gold targets identified during historic exploration programs and or by the 2018 Long Wave InfraRed Survey. The program will consist of prospecting, mapping, soil and rock sampling concentrating in the western portion of the property where last year's forest fire should provide new outcrop exposure in a number of the target areas. The Company anticipates developing multiple drill targets as a result of this exploration program.

Universal completed a widely spaced three-hole diamond drill program late in 2018.

Highlights from the drilling campaign include:

18-PC-126 was mineralized from top of bedrock to full depth, averaging 0.365% Cu, 0.015% Mo, 0.145 gram per tonne Au and 2.31 g/t Ag over 380.97 meters. The last 30.17 meters contained the strongest mineralization: 0.554% Cu, 0.027% Mo, 0.104g/t Au and 4.44 g/t Ag; indicating the historic IP conclusion of mineralization continuing to depth appears valid.

18-PC-127 was mineralized from top of bedrock to full depth, averaging 0.421% Cu, 0.013% Mo, 0.105g/t Au and 2.63 g/t Ag over 264.86 meters, including a 27 metre interval averaging 0.643% Cu, 0.030% Mo, 0.146g/t Au and 2.62 g/t Ag.
18-PC-127 intersected 0.330% Cu, 0.002 % Mo, 0.118 g/t Au and 3.46 g/t Ag over 151.10 meters between 122.8 meters and 273.9 meters

Mineralization consists of both dissemination pyrite and chalcopyrite and stockwork vein to veinlet pyrite, chalcopyrite and molybdenite.
