Sprott Physical Copper Trust Files Preliminary Prospectus for Proposed Initial Public Offering


TORONTO, May 13, 2024 – Sprott Asset Management LP (“Sprott Asset Management”), on behalf of Sprott Physical Copper Trust (the “Trust”), announced that on May 13, 2024 a preliminary prospectus for the Trust was filed and receipted by the securities regulatory authorities of all the Canadian provinces and territories for an initial public offering (the “Offering”) of transferable units (the “Units”) at a price of US$10.00 per Unit. The number of Units to be sold has not yet been determined.

The Trust is a closed-end trust established to invest and hold substantially all of its assets in physical copper metal (“Copper”). The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to purchase Copper.
