Pacific Empire Minerals Corp (CVE:PEMC) (OTCQB:PEMSF) has started drilling at its Worldstock copper-gold project in British Columbia, it said Wednesday.

The junior prospect generator said it plans to test a number of targets on the property, which is located near Taseko Mines Ltd’s Yellowhead copper project.

Drill targets include an area that saw limited drilling in the past, with reported values grading up to 0.4% copper over 10.4 metres. The goal of the reverse circulation (RC) drill program is to test several areas for porphyry copper-gold mineralization, the company said.

"We are excited to get the 2020 exploration season underway and continue our drive towards a gold-enriched copper porphyry discovery," Pacific Empire CEO Brad Peters said in a statement. 

"We are in a position to complete a significant amount of drilling at numerous high-quality targets this year beginning at the Worldstock property, which will be followed by drilling at Weedon and then on to the recently-acquired Jean Marie property where the bulk of the drilling for 2020 is planned."

Vancouver-based Pacific Empire’s model integrates project generation with low-cost RC drilling on its portfolio of properties to identify high-quality projects for partnership opportunities.
