Upon closing of the Transaction in the coming weeks, Sterling will have the ability to explore and advance two copper exploration opportunities in the stable jurisdictions of Ontario and Labrador. As we continue to see fundamentals for copper strengthening, we are excited to take a regional approach to unlocking Copper Road’s mineral potential, providing near- and long-term leverage to rising copper prices.
