The real meaning of "P.E.A."

In the mining world, the term PEA (English pron "pee ee ay", not as per the leguminous vegetable) is often used to describe a specific document related to a mine project at a certain stage in its development. But what does it really mean? This question came up yesterday morning, was bandied about in the inbox of your humble scribe by a few reprobates known to him, then made its way to Twitter (Spanish pron: "tuiteh") for further thoughts and polish. 

As a result, several options were discovered. Feel free to choose your own fave, esteemed reader.
