Pacific Empire Minerals Corp (CVE:PEMC) (OTCQB:PEMSF) has hailed rock sampling results at its Jean Marie copper-gold-silver-molybdenum porphyry project in British Columbia where a 20 metre (m) trench has thrown up 4 grams per ton (g/t) gold over eight metres (m).

"We always believed there was potential for significant gold mineralization at Jean Marie and these initial results clearly support this," said CEO Brad Peters in a statement on Tuesday.

"With a project of this scale, these results are a significant revelation for us and we will work to further expand and develop the potential for a gold-enriched copper deposit on this project. As we progress towards drilling in the fall it is encouraging to uncover new mineralized areas concealed beneath shallow cover, at surface," the CEO added.

The firm has an option to earn 100% of the project, which consists of 7,350 hectares (ha) of contiguous mineral claims in north-central British Columbia and lies 50 kilometres west of Centerra Gold's Mt. Milligan copper-gold mine.

An area south of the so-called C zone at the project, where a historic sample exhibited significant gold mineralization, was followed up with a 20 m hand excavated trench and systematically chip sampled over 2 m intervals.

Over the entire 20 m trench length, the average was 1.7 g/t gold. Meanwhile, rock sampling at the C Zone highlights included 0.525 g/t gold and 1.1% copper.
