Pacific Empire Minerals (PEMC), a British Columbia copper explorer, has expanded its flagship Jean Marie Project.
The Jean Marie Project now includes over 12,000 kilometres of land covering prospective buried intrusions and structures that were identified in a magnetic survey of the region.
Drilling on the project to date has intersected up to 244 metres of 0.28 per cent copper.
A field crew has been mobilized to the area and re-logging of the historical drill core is ongoing. The company plans to complete an exploration program at the property in July, including soil sampling, mapping, and geophysical surveys.
“Recovering and relogging the historical drill core is a critical first step for us this year,” commented Thomas Hawkins, VP of exploration at Pacific Empire.
The wide-spaced soil sampling will be focused on areas where there has been no coverage, including zones that lie along strike with known copper and gold mineralization.
The company has also retained Quaternary geology expert Derek Turner to map the surficial geology of the Jean Marie area using historical survey data, as well as modern topographical data and aerial imagery.
Brad Peters, president and CEO of Pacific Empire, commented on the upcoming exploration.
“This is a property with incredible potential,” he said, “and it is important that we use all available information and tools to develop an accurate geologic model.”
“Once the re-logging and soil geochemical surveys are complete,” added Mr. Peters, “we will have a robust dataset both at surface and below the surface.”
Pacific Empire is a copper exploration company based in Vancouver. Its flagship Jean Marie Project is a copper-gold-silver-molybdenum porphyry project located 50 kilometres west of Centerra Gold’s Mt. Milligan copper-gold mine in central B.C.
