Vancouver, B.C. – November 14, 2023 - Pacific Ridge Exploration Ltd. (PEX: TSX Venture; PEXZF: OTCQB; PQWN: FSE) ("Pacific Ridge" or the "Company”) is pleased to announce that it has almost doubled the size of the Kliyul copper-gold project (“Kliyul” or the “Project”) from approximately 52 km2 to approximately 92 km2. The new mineral claims (“Claims”) are contiguous and adjoin the western and southern side of Kliyul (see Figure 1). The Project is located in the prolific Quesnel Terrane in northcentral British Columbia close to existing infrastructure (see Figure 2).
Size: Kliyul has almost doubled in size from approximately 52 km2 to approximately 92 km2 and now comprises 83 contiguous mineral claims.
Targets: The Claims cover a gossanous target area with a coincident 750 x 500 m aeromagnetic high anomaly located 2.5 km south of the Kliyul Main Zone (“KMZ”) as well as other targets farther west.
Logistics: The southeasternmost mineral claim connects to the Omineca Road via forest service roads.
Exploration: Pacific Ridge plans to undertake a ZTEM airborne geophysical survey over Kliyul in 2024 to better assess the Claims and to further enhance drill targeting at KMZ.
“Acquiring these Claims was important for several reasons,” said Blaine Monaghan, President & CEO of Pacific Ridge. “Yes, we have almost doubled the size of Kliyul but, more importantly, the Claims contain a number of underexplored porphyry targets, and the southeasternmost mineral claim connects to the Omineca Road via forest service roads. This provides us with additional or alternative logistical options for the Project.” see & read more on
