Pacific Empire Minerals set for drilling at Jean Marie project in BC after it receives exploration permit

The permit covers 100 reverse circulation and 20 diamond drill holes at the group's flagship project

The firm is initially targeting an area adjacent to the best drill hole from 1974, which graded 0.3% copper over the entire 76.2 metres length of bedrock, including 27.4m grading 0.53% copper

Pacific Empire Minerals Corp (CVE:PEMC) (OTCQB:PEMSF) revealed it had received its multi-year exploration permit for the Jean Marie copper, gold, silver, moly project in British Columbia and drilling is poised to start at the A-zone.

The permit covers 100 reverse circulation (RC) and 20 diamond drill holes at the group's flagship project, which lies 50 kilometres west of Centerra Gold's Mt. Milligan copper-gold mine.

Historical exploration, mainly in the 1970s, focused on drilling in three copper porphyry zones - A, B and C - and no further drilling has taken place at the A-zone since it was discovered, noted PEMC.

The firm is initially targeting an area adjacent to the best drill hole from 1974, which graded 0.3% copper over the entire 76.2-metres length of bedrock, including 27.4 metres grading 0.53% copper and ended in mineralization.

"We are pleased to receive our exploration permit and look forward to initial drilling at the A-Zone. Results from drilling at the A-Zone and the property-wide airborne geophysical survey will be incorporated into the existing dataset as we continue to evaluate and develop exploration targets," said Brad Peters, Pacific Empire's CEO said in a statement on Monday.

A property-wide airborne magnetic survey has also been commissioned, the results of which will be interpreted alongside the rock geochemical sampling completed by the company during 2020.

Notably, the geochemical sampling encountered gold, silver and copper mineralization at all three zones.

Following the magnetic survey, targets will be prioritized for drill testing, the firm added.

PEMC holds an option to earn a 100% interest in Jean Marie.
