The 1,258 hectare Nub East Property is an exploration stage alkalic porphyry property in north-central British Columbia, located within the highly prospective Toodoggone district. The property is owned 100% by PEMC and was acquired through staking in March of 2016. The progression from high-sulphidation to skarn mineralization with decreasing elevation and moving eastward has led to the identification of a highly prospective Cu-Au porphyry target concealed in the valley in the eastern portion of the property.
Located 27 kilometres north of the Aurico Metal Inc's Kemess Underground Project, the Nub East Property is a helicopter accessible early-stage exploration Cu-Au porphyry property. The property comes to within approximately 20 km of the Omineca Resource Access Road ("ORAR"), and is within 9 km of logging and mine access roads to the southwest. Elevation ranges from 1,900 m, where high sulphidation and polymetallic mineralization occurs, down to 1,100 m in the eastern portion of the property where a conceptualized porphyry target lies in a broad NW trending valley.
Geology in the Toodoggone district is characterized by an Early Jurassic island arc felsic to intermediate volcanics, which unconformably overlie Late Triassic Takla Group basaltic and andesitic volcanics; these units are in turn underlain by Late Carboniferous to Early Permian Asitka Group sediments, volcaniclastic and volcanic units.
