Pacific Imperial Begins Exploration on Drill Permitted TREK 31 Gold Project


Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – June 7, 2022 – Pacific Imperial Mines Inc. (TSXV:PPM) (OTC:PCIMF) (“Pacific Imperial” or the “Company”)…




Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – June 7, 2022 – Pacific Imperial Mines Inc. (TSXV:PPM) (OTC:PCIMF) (“Pacific Imperial” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that on June 4 a field crew will mobilize to the TREK 31 project located 80 km south of Vanderhoof in the Nechako Plateau of central British Columbia (Figure 1). The TREK 31 property is 30 km northeast of Artemis Gold’s Blackwater Gold Deposit and covers an area of 120.4 km2 that is prospective for gold porphyry and epithermal mineralization.

Under an Option Agreement with Orogen Royalties Inc. (“Orogen”) Pacific Imperial may earn up to an 100% interest in the TREK 31 project by making cash payments and completing exploration work totaling CDN$3.3M over a five year period.

The initial exploration program will include geological renaissance, prospecting, overburden mapping and a soil geochemistry and soil gas hydrocarbon (“SGH”) sampling program that will collect up to 600 soil samples. The SGH method is being investigated as a means to detect sulphide minerals in bedrock through deep till, or thin rock cover.

Two soil geochemistry grids are planned: (i) a more detailed grid centered over a prominent induced polarization (“IP”) geophysical anomaly identified in 2020 and (ii) a wide-spaced grid covering the 3 x 6 km area up-ice of the area containing previously identified elevated gold in basal till samples. The goal of this Phase 1 program is to identify prospective areas for a planned late June reconnaissance type 3D IP survey that is then to be followed by a reverse circulation (“RC”) drill program.

Chris McLeod, President of Pacific Imperial stated “We are very pleased to begin the 2022 exploration program on TREK. Our 2021 summer drill program was cancelled due to wild fires in the immediate area. We have now revised our approach to exploration at TREK and intend to drill targets identified through a combination of till and soil sampling and IP geophysical surveys in a RC drill program which has already received all necessary permits”.

Mr. McLeod added: “Pacific Imperial was attracted to TREK 31 as it represents a low cost, road-accessible, early stage opportunity for the Company to identify a large scale gold-rich porphyry/epithermal deposit in a district endowed with development stage and past-producing mines”.
