Pan Global Adds Third Drill Rig and Commences Drilling on Two New Copper Targets at the Escacena Project, Spain

Pan Global Adds Third Drill Rig and Commences Drilling on Two New Copper Targets at the Escacena Project, Spain

  • First drill holes commence at the Zarcita and Bravo Norte VMS copper targets

  • Zarcita copper target expanded and number of planned drill holes increased

  • A third drill rig added to test new copper targets

Pan Global Resources Inc. (TSXV: PGZ) (OTC Pink: PGNRF) ("Pan Global" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at the Zarcita and Bravo Norte volcanogenic massive sulphide ("VMS") targets at the Company's 100%-owned Escacena Project in the Iberian Pyrite Belt, southern Spain. This is the first time these two priority targets have been drill tested.

Tim Moody, Pan Global President and CEO, states: "Zarcita is a significant high priority, 2.5 kilometer long target defined by historic mine workings, soil copper geochemistry, host rock alteration and geophysical anomalies indicative of potential for copper mineralization. Bravo Norte is a large coincident gravity and Induced Polarization (IP) anomaly. Zarcita and Bravo Norte are both within 5km of our La Romana copper-tin discovery and the neighbouring historic Aznalcollar open pit mine. We are very pleased that drilling is now underway at these compelling targets. A third drill rig has also been added and we expect the ongoing systematic exploration will continue to generate more drill targets. Results are also anticipated in the next few weeks from the initial drilling at the La Jarosa, Hornitos and Pilar targets."

The planned drill holes are part of a 20,000 meter multi-target program exploring for volcanogenic massive sulphide associated deposits of copper and other metals (see news release dated September 28, 2022). The Zarcita and Bravo Norte targets are shown on Figure 1 above.

Zarcita Target

The Zarcita target is located approximately 5 kilometers north of Pan Global's La Romana copper discovery and 5 kilometres west of the former producing Aznalcollar open pit copper-zinc mine. The initial planned 16 hole program will test both beneath and along strike of the historic Zarcita mine workings and a 2.5 kilometer east-west trend of broadly coincident soil copper anomalies, gravity highs, IP chargeability and heliborne electromagnetic (EM) conductivity anomalies (see figure 2 below). The main soil copper anomaly follows a 100m wide belt of strongly chlorite-pyrite altered volcanics, shales and ferruginous outcrops that extend from the mine workings and appear to continue both to the east and west beneath a thin cover of younger sediments. Two drill holes will test a coincident gravity and IP chargeability trend, and high priority heliborne EM conductor approximately 400 meters to the south of the Zarcita mine workings.

The historic Zarcita mine works includes two mine shafts and galleries, a ventilation shaft and several pits and shallow underground mine workings. Mining for sulfur and copper at Zarcita stopped at commencement of the first world war in 1914 and the underground development reached a depth of less than 100 meters deep (1978, Institute of Geology and Mining of Spain - IGME, Aznalcollar 1:50,000 Geology Map Sheet 961 Notes, pp 39-40; and Pinedo Vara, 1963 - Piritas de Huelva, pp 585-588). The mine workings are no longer accessible.

Bravo Norte Target

The target is located approximately 2.5 kilometers northeast of Pan Global's La Romana copper discovery and 3.5 kilometers southwest of the Aznalcollar open pit. Initial drilling will test the peak of a coincident gravity high and IP chargeability anomaly at Bravo Norte (see figure 3 below). Further drilling is anticipated following completion of ground geophysics over a heliborne EM conductor on the northern flank of the 1.0 x 0.5-kilometer Bravo Norte gravity anomaly and 300 meters west of an IP anomaly. The entire target area is covered by post-mineral sedimentary cover.

PAN GLOBAL ANNOUNCES FULLY FUNDED 20,000-METER ESCACENA PROJECT DRILL PROGRAM

PAN GLOBAL ANNOUNCES FULLY FUNDED 20,000-METER ESCACENA PROJECT DRILL PROGRAM

  • Board of Directors approves 20,000-meter, multi-target drill program at the Escacena Project for 2023
  • Plan includes La Romana drilling expansion and resource delineation
  • Drilling underway at La Romana, Romana Deep, and Zarcita
  • La Romana metallurgical studies continuing

Pan Global Resources Inc. ("Pan Global" or the "Company") (TSXV: PGZ) (OTC: PGNRF) is pleased to announce that the Board of Directors of the Company has approved plans for a fully funded 20,000-meter drill program at the Company's flagship Escacena Project ("Escacena").

Pan Global Resources Inc. logo (CNW Group/Pan Global Resources Inc.)

Pan Global's President and CEO Tim Moody noted: "Escacena has been the focus of Pan Global's exploration since the recent copper/tin/silver discovery at the La Romana target. To the end of 2022, we completed approximately 140 drill holes at La Romana with mineralization in almost every hole. Our 2023 plan is expected to include more than 50 additional drill holes at Escacena. This includes a 10-hole stepout and infill drill program at La Romana that is already underway targeting electromagnetic anomalies, further testing the continuity and potential down-dip extensions of the mineralization."

Catalysts for 2023 include:

  • Assay results from the ongoing exploration drilling at La Romana, the Romana Deep target (electromagnetic anomaly on the down-dip projection of the La Romana mineralization) and Zarcita target (located 4 km north of La Romana)
  • Gaining access to the west and east of La Romana to continue testing extensions of the geophysics target
  • Ongoing La Romana metallurgy testwork
  • Assay results from drilling on additional exploration targets

Mr. Moody added: "With a fully funded program for 2023, and three drill rigs currently operating on three targets at La Romana, Romana Deep, and Zarcita, plus exploration advancing on a number of other targets, we are well set up for an exciting year ahead at Escacena."

Annual incentive grant approved

The Pan Global Board of Directors has approved grants under the Company's shareholder-approved Omnibus Equity Incentive Compensation Plan (the "Plan") of a total of 2.165 million incentive stock options; 0.55 million Restricted Share Units (RSUs); and 0.65 million Deferred Share Units (DSUs) to officers, directors, employees, and consultants to the Company.

The incentive stock option entitles the holder to purchase the equivalent number of common shares of the Company at a price of $0.44 per common share for a period of five years from the date of grant. The options will vest as follows: 25% on grant, followed by additional 25% on each of 6-month, 12-month, and 18-month anniversaries from date of grant. The RSUs and DSUs will vest over two years from the effective date of grant, with one-third vesting 12 months after the effective date, and one-third vesting on each of the 18-month and 24-month anniversaries.

Pan Global Expands La Romana Deposit and Intersects 3.9 Meters of 1.04% Copper and 5.2 g/t Silver in New Upper Horizon

Pan Global Expands La Romana Deposit and Intersects 3.9 Meters of 1.04% Copper and 5.2 g/t Silver in New Upper Horizon

  • New copper horizon intersected 100 meters above the main La Romana mineralization
  • Near-surface copper mineralization expanded to the south
  • Polymetallic massive sulphides intersected in step-outs to the east

Pan Global Resources Inc. (TSXV: PGZ) (OTC Pink: PGNRF)  ("Pan Global" or the "Company") is pleased to announce assay results for 14 drill holes from the outer extent of the La Romana copper-tin discovery mineralization at the Company's 100%-owned Escacena Project in the Iberian Pyrite Belt, southern Spain.

"The new results expand the near-surface copper mineralization at La Romana to the south and continues to indicate the mineralization is wide open along strike and downdip," said Tim Moody, Pan Global President and CEO. "These results also highlight a new copper horizon in the hanging wall approximately 100 meters stratigraphically above the main La Romana mineralization. In addition, large step-out holes confirmed the prospective geology and mineralization continues to the east. As the drilling targeted the edges of known mineralization, these results were largely as expected. Based on our geologic understanding of the mineralization to date, La Romana has excellent potential to grow further with additional drilling planned for 2023. The company is well positioned for a strong exploration program in 2023 with the latest quarterly financial statements showing a balance of CAD$ 11.2 million."
