US Copper Suspends Drilling Due to Forest Fire

TORONTO - US Copper Corp has suspended its drill program at the Moonlight-Superior Copper Project in north-east California due to the approaching Dixie forest fire. The Dixie Forest fire began on July 15, 2021 and has become the largest forest fire in California so far this season. An evacuation order has been issued by the Plumas County Sheriff's Office and all US Copper staff and contractors have been demobilized from the project and are safe and accounted for. At this point, there has been no damage to the infrastructure at the Superior drill site. The Company is monitoring the situation closely and will provide timely updates on any material developments to the situation. To date, 7 drill holes have been completed, which will provide considerable data relative to the objectives of the drill program. When conditions permit, the Company will review the options for further drilling at that time.
