  • 10m at 1.7% CuEq, including 0.7m at 18.2% CuEq
  • 20.6m at 0.9% CuEq supergene chalcocite, including 8.5m at 1.3% CuEq
  • Copper-tin mineralization increasing in the west and down dip
  • Exploration accelerating in Al Andaluz

Pan Global Resources Inc. (TSXV: PGZ) (OTC Pink: PGNRF) ("Pan Global" or the "Company") is pleased to announce new high-grade copper and tin intercepts as drilling continues at the La Romana open pit copper target at the Escacena Project in the Iberian Pyrite Belt, southern Spain. Exploration has also commenced on the recently granted Al Andaluz Investigation (Exploration) Permit immediately to the east of La Romana within the Escacena Project area. The La Romana target is located less than 6 km from the former Aznalcollar open pit mine and approximately 15km west of the Las Cruces copper mine.

Tim Moody, Pan Global President and CEO states: "The latest results include the highest copper assay ever reported at La Romana with 16.8% Cu or 18.2% Cu equivalent (CuEq) over 0.7m within a 10m wide interval averaging 1.7% CuEq. The results add copper and tin mineralization near-surface in the west and downdip on several sections which confirms the deposit remains wide open in several areas. Results are awaited for several new holes, including in the far west where the copper and tin mineralization appears to be increasing towards the La Romana mine workings."

Mr. Moody added: "In addition to the ongoing drilling at La Romana, ground geophysics has already commenced in the adjacent Al Andaluz permit area with a second gravity survey crew being added to accelerate the program."

Highlights include:

  • 10m at 1.7% CuEq (1.5% Cu, 6.5g/t Ag, 0.01% Co) from 111m in LRD85, including

1Metal prices used: Copper US$6,200 per tonne, Silver USD22.50 per ounce, Gold US$1,500 per ounce, Cobalt US$32,800 per tonne and Tin US$18,000 per tonne. The copper equivalent (CuEq ) values are for exploration purposes only and include no assumptions for metal recovery.

The results add near-surface copper and tin mineralization in the west and show the mineralization extends over approx. 1.1km strike. The latest drill results continue to show that the mineralization remains open in several directions.

The primary mineralization includes mainly stockwork, semi-massive sulphides and bands of massive sulphide, with chalcopyrite as the primary copper mineral and cassiterite as the only observed tin mineral. The copper mineralization is also associated with elevated levels of silver, cobalt and gold. A metal zonation is also apparent, progressing from copper and tin in the west to copper and then zinc in the east.

Drill hole LRD76 extends the copper mineralization approx. 50m to the west where it remains wide open, with approx. 30m grading 0.5% Cu, including a 7m near surface oxide/leached copper zone immediately followed by a 20m interval of mostly supergene chalcocite with traces of native copper and elevated tin. Results include:

  • 7.4m at 0.3% Cu (oxides) from 13m downhole, immediately followed by
  • 20.6m at 0.9% CuEq (chalcocite; 0.5% Cu, 0.10% Sn, 1.3g/t Ag) from 20.4m, including;
    • 8.5m at 1.3% CuEq (0.7% Cu, 0.20% Sn, 1.6g/t Ag, 102ppm Co)

Drill hole LRD77 (together with LRD79) tested a 120m gap in the drilling between holes LRD51 and LRD14, and confirmed down-dip continuation of the copper zone. Notable results include:

  • 7.7m at 1.1% CuEq (1.0% Cu, 3.5g/t Ag, 110ppm Co) from 98.5m, including;
    • 3.65m at 1.8% CuEq (1.6% Cu, 5.7g/t Ag, 160ppm Co)

Drill hole LRD78 tested approximately 50m downdip from hole LRD09. The hole confirms the main copper zone continues to the north and remains open down-dip. The hole also intersected a shallow zone of oxide copper mineralization. Results include:

  • 11m at 0.2% Cu (oxide) from 23m
  • 6.7m at 0.8% CuEq (0.7% Cu, 2.7g/t Ag) from 156.6m, including

      • 1.9m at 3.6% CuEq (3.0% Cu, 0.11% Sn, 16.5g/t Ag, 140ppm Co)

Drill hole LRD79 confirmed the mineralization continues down-dip from hole LRD77, including several narrow close-spaced high-grade intercepts. Results include:

  • 6.6m at 0.6% CuEq (0.5% Cu, 4.4g/t Ag, 0.07g/t Au) from 61.7m, including
    • 0.85m at 2.0% CuEq (1.8% Cu, 11.5g/t Ag, 107ppm Co)
  • 7.7m at 0.9% CuEq (0.7% Cu, 5.1g/t Ag) from 75.9m, including

    • 0.75m at 3.6% CuEq (3.1% Cu, 14.2g/t Ag, 261ppm Co)

Drill hole LRD80 confirms a more than 30m wide zone of copper and tin mineralization extending north of hole LRD46, and remains open downdip. The hole also intersected a narrow zone of near surface oxide copper mineralization. Results include:

  • 4.15m at 0.23% Cu (oxide) from 7.85m
  • 33m at 0.5% CuEq (0.3% Cu, 0.05% Sn, 1.3g/t Ag) from 113m, including

Assay results are pending for an additional 21 completed drill holes including several new drill holes in the western limits of the project area with strong copper mineralization evident in drill core. Drilling is ongoing with two drill rigs.


Core size was HQ (63mm) and all samples were ½ core. Nominal sample size was 1m core length and ranged from 0.4 to 2m. Sample intervals were defined using geological contacts with the start and end of each sample physically marked on the core. Diamond blade core cutting and sampling was supervised at all times by Company staff. Duplicate samples of ¼ core were taken approximately every 30 samples and Certified Reference materials inserted every 25 samples in each batch.

Samples were delivered to ALS laboratory in Seville, Spain and assayed at the ALS laboratory in Ireland. All samples were crushed and split (method CRU-31, SPL22Y), and pulverized using (method PUL-31). Gold analysis was by 50gm Fire assay with ICP finish (method Au-ICP22) and multi element analysis was undertaken using a 4-acid digest with ICP AES finish (method ME-ICP61). Tin was analysed in selected intervals using Lithium borate fusion and ICP MS finish (method ME-MS81). Over grade base metal results were assayed using a 4-acid digest ICP AES (method OG-62). Over grade tin was determined using peroxide fusion with ICP finish (method Sn-ICP81x).

Pan Global Resources

Pan Global Resources

Pan Global Resources (TSXV:PGZ,OTC:PGNRF) is a junior resource company in pursuit of base and precious metals projects in Spain. The company’s flagship Escacena project is located in southern Spain’s Iberian Pyrite Belt, a world-class volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) district that hosts at least nine giant VMS ore deposits (>100 million tonnes) and several operating mines.

Pan Global’s land package in the Iberian Pyrite Belt totals approximately 5,760 hectares and lies directly adjacent to the Aznalcollar (>70 million tonnes) and Los Frailes (>90 million tonnes) deposits. The Escacena project is also located only 12 kilometers from the active Cobre Las Cruces mine (42 million tonnes at 2.95% copper) which has been mining grades of more than 5% copper in the open pit.  Pan Global is currently focusing on two targets at Escacena, the La Romana massive sulfide copper deposit and the Cañada Honda gravity anomaly.  Recent drill results at the La Romana target have returned high multi-metal (copper, tin, silver, zinc) grades from near surface with every hole hitting mineralization indicating the potential for a large size deposit. Escacena’s exceptional land position, great infrastructure and multiple large untested targets make it an exciting prospect for the company.

Pan Global Resources’ Escacena Project

In June 2017, Pan Global Resources acquired the Escacena project.  The project hosts two large gravity anomalies, La Romana and Cañada Honda. Historical wide-spaced drilling at the La Romana gravity anomaly confirmed massive sulfide and stockwork mineralization including a best drill interval of 4.68 meters at 2.94 percent copper.


Pan Global Resources began its initial exploration of the Escacena project in early 2019, including gravity, induced polarity (IP) and geochemical surveys. The results of this initial exploration work confirmed the La Romana and Cañada Honda gravity targets, allowing the company to move forward with drilling.

Pan Global Resources commenced drilling in July 2019, testing shallow IP targets previously identified at the La Romana and Cañada Honda targets. This included two drill holes at La Romana and one drill hole at Cañada Honda, totaling 547 meters. Channel sampling of the Cañada Honda mine tunnel at the Escacena project returned 26 meters at 0.43 g/t gold and up to 2.91 g/t gold and 0.39 percent copper.

In October 2019, Pan Global announced the results of its first two drill holes at Escacena testing the La Romana target, including discovery drill hole LRD-02 at La Romana with 20.55m at 1.5% copper equivalent. Both drill holes LRD-01 and LRD-02 intersected shallow volcanic-associated copper stockwork, semi-massive and massive sulphides.

Pan Global continued its exploration of Escacena in 2020 including geochemistry and geophysics designed to identify new targets on the property. The second phase of drilling commenced in February and included the first step out drill holes at the La Romana copper target. The new drill holes intersected copper mineralization over wide intervals and showed the mineralization extends from near surface over several hundred meters of strike and shows copper in several layers open in most directions.  Pan Global’s own geophysics results and historical geophysics by Exxon indicate a potential for the copper mineralization to continue more than 2 kilometres along strike.

Selected drilling highlights include:

LRD-02: 20.55m at 1.5 percent copper equivalent (1.02 percent copper, 0.11 percent tin, 4.7 g/t silver) from 37.45m, including 7m at 3.43 percent copper equivalent (2.50 percent copper, 0.23 percent tin, 10.1 g/t silver, 0.014 g/t gold, 0.11 percent zinc, 133 ppm cobalt) from 48m.

LRD-03: 21.3m at 1.03 percent copper equivalent (0.73 percent copper, 0.055 percent tin, 4.1 g/t silver) from 47.3m, including 6.6m at 2.05 percent copper equivalent (>1 percent copper) combined thickness.

LRD-05: 21m at 1.55 percent copper equivalent (1.19 percent copper, 0.069 percent tin, 5.8g/t silver) from 16m, including 11m at 2.60 percent copper equivalent (>1 percent copper or 0.5 percent tin) combined thickness.

In August 2020, Pan Global Resources commenced phase three follow-up drill program at La Romana. The 25-hole drill program is designed to test the multi-layer copper potential and significantly expand the mineralization in the area.  The program is also expected to test two large down-hole EM conductor plate anomalies and help define vectors to areas of stronger mineralization.

Pan Global Resources extended its holdings at the Escacena project through the acquisition of the rights to the “Al Andalus” property investigation permit and completed the acquisition of the property in early 2020.  Al Andalus is located adjacent to the company’s initial holdings at Escacena and includes potential eastern extensions to the company’s La Romana prospect and several large untested gravity anomalies.  The property comes to within 600 meters of the edge of the Aznalcollar open pit and also includes both the historical mining areas of the El Pozo and La Zarcita, and the La Jarosa target where a historical drill hole by Exxon in the mid-1980’s returned 9.5 meters at 1.42 percent. Exploration will commence on the Al Andalus property as soon as permitted.

Pan Global Resources’ Aguilas Project

The Aguilas project comprises nine investigation permits covering a total of 16,300 hectares in northern Andalucia, Spain. The main targets on the property are major cross-cutting fault zones in the Pedroches Batholith, including the Torrubia and Zumanjo trends. The project hosts IOCG-style copper mineralization along the Torrubia copper trend, which was drilled by the company in 2019 and confirmed wide zones of breccia over several kilometers of strike length.  Drill holes on the Zumajo trend targeted high grade polymetallic (lead, zinc, silver and lesser copper and gold) vein or breccia mineralization. Several shallow historical mine shafts and ancient workings occur along both trends.

Pan Global first began drilling on the Aguilas project in April 2019, and so-far completed 27 wide-spaced drill holes totaling 3,908 meters. This includes thirteen of the holes along 4.1 kilometers of the more than 20 kilometer long Zumajo lead-zinc-silver trend and 14 drill holes along three sections of the more than 10 kilometer long Torrubia trend.

On the Zumajo trend, high-grade polymetallic mineralization was intersected with an 8 to 20- meter-wide, steeply-dipping zone of multi-stage breccia and veins.  High-grade intervals included hole VAC-02 with 14.85% lead, 0.11% zinc, 67.1g/t silver (16.91% lead equivalent or 634g/t silver equivalent) over 1.3 meters and hole VAC-06 with up to 16.85 % lead, 1.9 % zinc and 85 g/t silver (22.15 % lead equivalent or 815 g/t silver equivalent) over 0.6 meters. The drill results show potential for a significant zone of high-grade lead, zinc and silver mineralization near the San Luis and San Cayetano mine workings over several kilometers of strike and open at depth. Several other targets along the Zumajo trend require testing.

Drilling conducted at the Torrubia trend included 40 to 90-meter-wide intervals of intense multi-stage breccia and hematite-quartz-carbonate alteration over several kilometers of strike. The best grades at Torrubia included 2.65% copper, 125ppm cobalt and 3 g/t silver (2.76% copper equivalent) over 0.8m and 1.65% copper, 240ppm cobalt and 2.1 g/t silver (2.05% copper equivalent) over 0.7m in drill hole TOR-001; and 3m at 1.16g/t gold from 74m, including 0.8m at 3.48g/t gold and 1.5g/t silver in drill hole TN-06. The breccia includes fragments or casts with high contents of chalcopyrite and hematite indicating an early copper mineralizing stage and further potential both along-strike and at depth.
