Pacific Empire Minerals Corp (CVE:PEMC) (OTCQB:PEMSF) revealed that it has expanded its footprint at the Jean Marie copper-gold-silver-molybdenum project in British Columbia.
The prospect generator said it had staked over 1,000 hectares of prospective mineral tenure, contiguous to and immediately east of the site, which lies just 50 kilometres west of Centerra Gold's Mt. Milligan copper-gold mine. In all, the project now spans 7,355 hectares and boasts multiple mineralized zones open for expansion, along with several additional exploration targets.
"The extent and tenor of anomalous copper-in-soil geochemistry on the Jean Marie project presents several exploration targets beyond the historical A, B and C zones," Brad Peters, Pacific Empire Minerals CEO said in a statement.
"The recently acquired mineral tenure to the east of the original Jean Marie project provides the company with yet another exploration target, that can be cost-effectively explored."
The new ground includes historical geochemical anomalies with values up to 4,400 parts per million (ppm) copper-in-soil and 655 ppm copper-in-stream sediment.
Pacific Empire is focused on discovering gold-enriched copper deposits in British Columbia and uses a hybrid prospect generator model.
