The company is to pay a total of C$65,000 cash and issue 500,000 shares within four years for the 50-square-kilometer property.

The vendors hold a 1% net smelter royalty, half of which can be purchased at any time for C$500,000, according to the Dec. 20 release.

Pacific Empire President Brad Peters said that the acquisition will increase the company's land position in the Babine area to over 15,000 hectares.

In a Dec. 18 release, Pacific Empire said it entered an option with a group of vendors and consolidated a land position of over 90 square kilometers in the Babine porphyry district.

The vendors hold a 2% net smelter royalty, half of which can be purchased at any time for C$1.50 million.

Pacific Empire will combine the 6 claims with the recently-optioned Nilkitkwa property, and its Wasp property to create the Paragon project.
