Pacific Empire Minerals (PEMC) has retained Atlas Drilling to conduct a diamond drilling program on its Jean Marie Property in British Columbia.

The Vancouver-based mineral exploration company has also finalized drill targets at the flagship project.

The company completed a comprehensive exploration program, encompassing all existing historical data on the property in 2021.

Pacific Empire now has delineated two high-priority drill targets for diamond drilling during the current exploration season.

“The Jean Marie project has drill-proven potential to host a significant copper discovery. Our initial objective is to test below shallow historic drilling at Target 1 where new geophysics suggests this zone extends at depth, dipping to the east. Our interpretation is that there is a copper porphyry centre at depth and that intervals encountered in shallow drilling bodes well for high grades at depth. One of the most intriguing targets is Target 2 which is the location of the most significant geochemical anomaly on the property. Our work during 2021 suggests this anomaly is till transported therefore, rather than focusing on the centre, our priority target is the northern margin of the geochemical anomaly. It will be exciting to drill-test this sizeable anomaly and we look forward to cost-effectively advancing Jean Marie and appreciate the project’s location, ease of access and nearby infrastructure,” said President and CEO Brad Peters.

Pacific Empire Minerals is up 60 percent, trading at $0.04 at 2:19 pm ET.
