An initial program of five to 10 reverse circulation (RC) holes is in train.

The aim of the work is to determine the potential for additional mineralization outside the mineralised zones using historical soil sampling and airborne magnetic surveys to guide exploration.

Pacific Empire also revealed that its phase 1 programme of 11 holes of reverse circulation (RC) drilling, totalling 550 metres, has now been completed in the northern portion of the Wildcat property, also in BC, which had targetted  three areas.

All samples were screened in-house using the company's X-Ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometer, but intervals were not deemed of significant grade and width to send to the lab for analysis at the three target areas.

"The results of phase 1 drilling at the Wildcat property are being reviewed and future exploration will be planned accordingly," said Pacific Empire president and chief executive Brad Peters.

"We intend to test as many targets as rapidly and cost-effectively as possible in order to prioritize each of our projects for further reverse circulation drilling and exploration programs during 2018."

PEMC shares added 4.17% to C$0.12.
