VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Universal Copper Ltd. (“Universal Copper” or the “Company”)
(TSX Venture: UNV) (Frankfurt: 3TA2) is pleased to report it has submitted an amendment to renew its existing exploration permit for a further five years on the Company’s flagship Poplar Copper Project ( “Poplar” ), located 88 KM southwest of Houston, British Columbia.

The Company has applied for an additional 80 drill sites within its current permit area, the area of the Poplar deposit itself. The new permits will allow the Company to begin infill drilling to bring much of the current inferred mineral resource to current indicated mineral resources as well as test the limits of the known mineralization for expansion.
