Pampa Metals Reports 130m From 362m @ 1.31% CuEq*, Within a Broader Interval of 558m From 362m @ 0.73% CuEq* Which Remains Open at Depth

Pampa Metals Corp. ("PMC" or the "Company") (CSE:PM)(FSE:FIR)(OTCQB:PMMCF) is pleased to announce the assay results from the PIU16-DDH01 diamond drillhole (920.2 m) completed at the Piuquenes Project in the 2015-2016 season (refer 30 November 2023 News Release

Results include:
- 558.2 m (362-920.2 m EOH) @ 0.38% Cu & 0.42 g/ Au & 2.4 g/t Ag (0.73% CuEq)*
Including:
- 296 m (362-658 m) @ 0.5 % Cu & 0.5 g/t Au & 2.7 g/t Ag (0.91% CuEq)*,
- 180 m (362-542 m) @ 0.71% Cu & 0.61 g/t Au & 3.8 g/t Ag (1.22% CuEq)* and
- 130 m (362-492 m) @ 0.81% Cu & 0.6 g/t Au & 4 g/t Ag (1.31 % CuEq)*

PIU16-DDH01 Diamond Drillhole (920.2 m) - (refer 30 November 2023 News Release).
As part of its Due Diligence and data validation of the Piuquenes Project, the Company relogged the PIU16-DDH01 borehole which had crossed the mineral intersections discovered by Inmet in 1995-1997 (refer 30 November 2023 News Release). A 558 m (362-920.2 m) section was sent to ALS Mendoza for Au fire 30 gram Au fire assay (Au-AA23) and ICP multi-element 4-acid digestion (ME-MS61) assays. Following review and interpretation of the assay results and a thorough Qa/Qc process, the Company is pleased to report a significant section of copper-gold-silver mineralization of:

• 558.2 m (362-920.2 m EOH) @ 0.38% Cu & 0.42 g/ Au & 2.4 g/t Ag (0.73% CuEq)*
Including:
• 296 m (362-658 m) @ 0.5 % Cu & 0.5 g/t Au & 2.7 g/t Ag (0.91% CuEq)*,
• 180 m (362-542 m) @ 0.71% Cu & 0.61 g/t Au & 3.8 g/t Ag (1.22% CuEq)* and
• 130 m (362-492 m) @ 0.81% Cu & 0.6 g/t Au & 4 g/t Ag (1.31 % CuEq)*

The re-logging and interpretation of the assays indicates that primary mineralization is related to Cu-Au porphyry hosted quartz veins and remains open at depth. The shallow overlay is associated with supergene enrichment, with some copper oxides observed at surface.

Qa/Qc procedure - PIU16-DDH01 Diamond Drillhole

Assay of the PIU16-DDH01 drillhole was based on samples of 2m intervals initially cut by Anglo-American Argentina at the drill platform using a hydraulic press. As part of Pampa Metals' data validation and due diligence, 8 batches of between 16 and 50 samples each were sent to ALS Mendoza for Au fire 30 gr (Au-AA23) and multi-element ICP 4 -acids (ME-MS61) assays. The Qa/Qc control protocol included twinned samples, coarse-grained and fine-grained duplicates, coarse quartz blanks and two types of standards, which together represented 20% (57 samples) of the 279 associated drillhole samples.

Results of the Qa/Qc procedure confirm that the samples pass the duplicate, blank and standard controls. In the case of duplicates, samples are well distributed on a linear correlation curve with only gold showing some variability, possibly due to the presence of coarse gold.

Piuquenes Porphyry Copper-Gold Project

The Piuquenes Project consists of nine mining titles that cover an area of ~1,880 ha in the San Juan Province of Argentina, adjacent (to the north) with the Altar copper-gold porphyry project (Aldebaran Resources Inc.) and approximately 190 km west of the city of San Juan. Other large porphyry copper projects in the San Juan Miocene porphyry belt include, El Pachón (Glencore), approximately 30 km to the south, the operating Los Pelambres copper mine (60% Antofagasta plc) in Chile, and Los Azules (McEwen Mining) 50 km to the northeast.

The first evidence of copper oxides at Piuquenes was reported in 1970 by MInera Aguilar, who subsequently completed the first exploration program between 1973-1975. Between 1995 and 1997, Inmet Mining Corporation (IMC) completed a heli-magnetic/radiometric survey, surface geology, rock and soil geochemistry, ground magnetics, PD-IP and eight diamond drillholes for a total of 1,894.2m. Subsequently, in 2015-2016, Anglo American Argentina (AAA) completed detailed 1:2,500 geology and geochemistry, 17.8 km of gDAS24 deep 3D PD-IP/NSMT and a single 920.2 m diamond drill hole.

Since its discovery, the Piuquenes Copper-Gold porphyry has until now remained privately held.

Inmet Mining Corporation's (IMC, subsequently acquired by First Quantum in 2013) 8 diamond drill holes for a total of 1,894.2m intersected significant copper and gold mineralization including:
• 413.5 m (167-580.5 m) @ 0.47% Cu and 0.52 g/t Au (0.87% CuEq)*;
• 67.5 m (207-274.5 m) @ 0.63% Cu and 0.51 g/t Au (1.02% CuEq)*; and
• 158 m (3-161 m) @ 0.32% Cu and 0.6 g/t Au (0.78% CuEq)*.

In November 2023, Pampa Metals assayed and re-logged Anglo-American Argentina's (AAA) 2016 single diamond borehole of 920.2 m length which had crossed the mineral zones drilled by IMC and reported the results in this news release dated 5 December, 2023.

Follow-Up drilling

Pampa Metals has designed a diamond drill program to be completed across two drilling seasons which consists of a ~2,500 diamond Phase 1 drill program designed to test the depth and lateral extension of known mineralisation, to be completed between January - April 2024 (indicative) with assays results expected progressively between March and May 2024 (indicative).

Phase 2 consists of a six-month drill program designed to significantly expand the mineralised envelope and scheduled to commence in October 2024 (indicative).

Pampa Metals Intersects Wide Interval of Copper Mineralization at Piuquenes, Argentina

Pampa Metals Intersects Wide Interval of Copper Mineralization at Piuquenes, Argentina

Pampa Metals Corp. ("Pampa Metals" or the "Company") (CSE:PM)(FSE:FIR)(OTCQB:PMMCF) is pleased to report that diamond drillhole PIU-01 (refer figure 1) was completed at a downhole depth of 867m. First assay results are expected shortly. Drillhole PIU 02, the second hole of the current program, has commenced

Hole PIU-01, designed to extend Cu-Au mineralization to depth on the southwestern margin of the Piuquenes Central porphyry, intersected a 160m zone of supergene copper enrichment between 220m and 380m downhole, coincident, and overlapping with primary mineralization from 350 meters. Strong primary mineralization associated with intense porphyry A type quartz stockwork veining is evident from 350m to approximately 650m. From 650m to the end of hole at 867m quartz veining and mineralization continues, becoming progressively less intense with depth. From 830m disseminated hematite/specularite-pyrite-chalcopyrite mineralization is hosted in volcanic host rocks outside the porphyry intrusive and remains open at depth.
