Universal Copper Ltd announced the results from Drill Hole from its 62,000 hectare Poplar copper property, southwest of Houston, British Columbia. The purpose of 19-PC-129, drilled at an angle of -80, was to test the main Poplar deposit to depth. The hole was successful with continuous copper mineralization from 48.8 metres through to a major shear zone fault at 538 metres. The full interval averaged 0.362 % copper over 489.2 metres with a higher-grade interval of 0.488% copper between 230.36 metres and 487.97 metres within a larger interval of 0.413% copper between 143.18 and 538 metres. The hole was terminated at 551 metres on the other side of the shear zone fault. Further exploration needs to focus on locating the copper mineralization below the fault.

Clive Massey Universal Copper's CEO said that “We are ecstatic to have intersected strong consistent copper mineralization through the length of the drill hole until terminated by the newly discovered shear zone fault. As mineralization was consistent until just above the fault, we believe the copper mineralization was displaced below the fault and Universal will focus on locating the displaced block."
