Empire Copper Gold Project Previous exploration activity at Empire including drilling and soil geochemistry prove a very strong geochemical signature in the associate elements of Au-Ag-Bi-Cu-Mo-Sb-W typical of copper-gold porphyry systems. So far drilling has focussed only on the stockworks where an open pit mineable resource has been defined. Our latest rock chips show these stockworks extend for at least another 750m and our geologist believes these could be the part of a bigger porphyry style target.

"If we can get even 3 percent of the public to have a quiet revolution and convert their fiat money into sound money — physical gold and physical silver — it's all you have to do for a quiet revolution (and) to have a seat at the table."

Piche Resources Poised to Supply North American, Western European Utilities, Exec Says

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Piche Resources Executive Chairman John Simpson stressed the need for diversity of supply from much more friendly jurisdictions to ensure security. Citing the company’s promising assets in Australia and Argentina, he said Piche will play an important role in the critical metals supply chain.

“We saw both China and Russia politicise or militarise their commodities … I think that's created an enormous awareness (for) the need for diversity of supply from much more friendly jurisdictions (and) ensuring security (of supply),” he said.

“Being a company that has critical metals and energy in locations like Australia and Argentina, if we can supply the quantities, the volume within the first quartile of costs, we will be a very attractive supplier to North American and Western European utilities.”
