A reverse circulation drilling program was completed in August of 2018 by PEMC at the Copper King property.
Pacific Empire Minerals (TSXV:PEMC) has reported on assays received for the Copper King property in north-central British Columbia.
A reverse circulation drilling program was completed in August of 2018 by PEMC at the Copper King property, located approximately 35 km southeast of Centerra Gold’s Kemess underground and Kemess East projects.
As quoted in the press release:
Drilling was focused on the “North Valley Target Area” at the northern portion of the property where anomalous IP chargeability is coincident with rock, soil, talus and sediment samples that are anomalous in copper-gold-silver. Four RC holes totalling 459 metres were drilled with PEMC’s in-house track-mounted RC drill, with depths of the holes ranging from 82.3 to 147.8 metres.
Two of the four holes drilled encountered disseminated chalcocite mineralization associated with strong epidote-clay alteration over variable widths and laboratory results have been received for the two assayed holes. Given the geological context and the widespread nature of copper mineralization at surface, that closely resembles that encountered in drilling, the company believes there is significant potential for a buried porphyry system on the Copper King property.
