5-Year Exploration Permit Received

The new exploration permit allows the Company to drill an additional 150 holes, build necessary drill access roads, and conduct additional trenching and geophysical surveying.  The permit also allows the Company to maintain its existing 30-man exploration camp and core facility.  Surge Copper plans to drill a minimum of 3,000 metres at Ootsa this summer, testing priority targets around the East and West Seel deposits, with a few holes targeting deposit expansion.  The Company also plans to conduct surface exploration programs at multiple copper, gold, and silver exploration targets on the Ootsa Property.


Non-Brokered Private Placement Completed

The Company is pleased to announce it has closed the non-brokered private placement announced on May 29, 2018, consisting of 400,000 units (“Units”) at a price of $0.12 per Unit raising gross proceeds of $48,000.  Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (“Warrant”).  Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company, for 24 months, at an exercise price of $0.15 per share after the closing date of the private placement. 


The proceeds of the private placement will be used for the purpose of carrying out the exploration programs on the Company’s British Columbia property and for general working capital.
