Pacific Empire Minerals Corporation (TSX-V:PEMC, OTCQB:PEMSF) has announced that it has finalized two high-priority drill targets for the upcoming summer exploration season at its flagship Jean Marie copper porphyry project in north-central British Columbia.

The company said the two targets had been chosen following the company’s comprehensive exploration programs at Jean Marie in 2020 and 2021, which incorporated historical data on the property.

Pacific Empire CEO Brad Peters said the company’s initial objective was 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,” he said.

He added that one of the most intriguing targets was Target 2 which was 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,” Peters said.

“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.”

For the 2022 drill program, the company said it was pleased to retain the services of Atlas Drilling Ltd of Kamloops, BC.

Based in Vancouver, Pacific Empire Minerals is a copper exploration company with a strong portfolio of gold-enriched copper projects in British Columba.
