Pacific Empire Minerals says sampling at Jean Marie project shows potential for a precious-metal-enriched, copper porphyry deposit

The prospect generator group assayed 8.79 g/t gold, 86.6 g/t silver and 1.75% copper

Pacific Empire Minerals Corp (CVE:PEMC) (OTCQB:PEMSF) has unveiled rock sample assays from its Jean Marie project in British Columbia, which continues to show the potential for a precious-metal-enriched, copper porphyry deposit at the site.

The prospect generator group assayed 8.79 grams per ton (g/t) gold, 86.6 g/t silver and 1.75% copper in rock samples at the newly identified Leap target area, it said.

Meanwhile, continuous chip sampling yielded 4 metres grading 1.37% copper, 0.08 g/t gold and 67.4 g/t silver at C zone south.

"Although outcrop is sparce, we continue to find additional mineralized areas across the property characterized by veining that is consistent with the upper level of a porphyry system," the company said in a statement.

"This new data, combined with historical drilling at the A, B and C zones, supports the potential for a porphyry system at depth, along the Jean Marie fault. We look forward to the start of drilling at Jean Marie in the coming weeks."

The presence of base-metal, precious metal veins at numerous areas across the project, which consistently have a bismuth-tellurium signature is interpreted as being consistent with what is observed in the upper levels of porphyry systems.

The Jean Marie asset 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.

PEMC holds an option to earn a 100% interest in Jean Marie.
