Drilling underway at recently identified Romana Deep VMS copper target
Romana Deep target features a large heliborne electromagnetic (HEM) anomaly that coincides with the down-dip projection of the near-surface La Romana copper/tin mineralization
Drilling continuing at Zarcita copper target
Pan Global Resources Inc. (TSXV: PGZ) (OTC: PGNRF) ("Pan Global" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at the Romana Deep volcanogenic massive sulphide ("VMS") target at the Company's 100%-owned Escacena Project in the Iberian Pyrite Belt, southern Spain. An initial program of four widely spaced drill holes is planned to provide the first test of the Romana Deep target.
"Romana Deep is a compelling target featuring a large HEM anomaly extending down-dip from Pan Global's La Romana copper discovery," said Tim Moody, Pan Global President and CEO. "Some of the strongest copper mineralization at La Romana exhibits a similar HEM signature and the copper mineralization remains open in the direction of the Romana Deep target. The first of four planned drill holes has commenced at Romana Deep. In addition, drilling continues to the north at the high priority Zarcita target."

Romana Deep Target
Further processing and interpretation of the Company's recently completed HEM survey has significantly expanded the previously identified Romana Deep target (see previous news release on September 28, 2022). The Romana Deep target is characterized by a large HEM resistivity low anomaly located down-dip from Pan Global's near-surface La Romana copper discovery (see Figure 1 above). The target is also less than 5 kilometres southwest of the former producing Aznalcollar open pit copper-zinc mine.
The copper-tin mineralization at La Romana also coincides with HEM resistivity low anomalies, providing a further indicator of potential for additional copper mineralization associated with the Romana Deep HEM target. The target extends northwards from La Romana at a depth of approximately 300m and spans more than 1 km east-west. See Figures 2 and 3 below. An initial four drill holes, 150 to 350 meters apart, totalling approximately 2,000 meters are planned to test some of the strongest resistivity low anomalies within the broader target area.

A corridor through the Romana Deep target is shown without EM data due to interference from an overhead electricity power line. A-A' locates the cross section in Figure 3.

The number of initial planned drill holes at Romana Deep has doubled and will add to the planned 20,000-meter multi-target program outlined in the Company's news release dated September 28, 2022. A multi-hole drill program is continuing at the Zarcita target and drill results are expected to be reported in the coming weeks for the outstanding drill holes at La Romana and other targets at the Escacena Project.

About the Escacena Project
The Escacena Project comprises a large, contiguous, 5,760-hectare land package controlled 100% by Pan Global in the east of the Iberian Pyrite Belt. The project is located near operating mines at Las Cruces and Rio Tinto and is immediately adjacent to the former Aznalcollar and Los Frailes mines where Minera Los Frailes/Grupo Mexico is in the permitting stage to restart mining. The Escacena Project hosts the La Romana copper-tin discovery and a number of other prospective targets, including La Jarosa, Hornitos, Zarcita, Romana Deep, Pilar, Bravo and Barbacena.
