TORONTO, May 13, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 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.
