ABOUT World Copper Ltd.

World Copper Ltd., headquartered in Vancouver, BC, is a Canadian resource company focused on the exploration and development of its copper porphyry projects: Escalones and Cristal in Chile, and Zonia in Arizona. Two of these projects have estimated resources with significant soluble copper mineralization, and each has additional copper porphyry targets with exciting potential to expand the resource base.

The World Copper team has a unique skill in navigating the mining sector within Chile, with some members having worked in the country for more than 40 years and with discovery success.

Detailed information is available at World Copper's website at www.worldcopperltd.com, and for general Company updates you may follow us on our social media pages via Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn.

About Escalones

The Escalones porphyry-skarn copper-gold project has estimated inferred resources of 426 million tonnes of 0.367% total copper within the oxidized zone, based on nearly 25,000m of drill core from 53 holes. The 3.45 billion pounds of copper should be amenable to heap leaching with an average recovery of 71%. The Company is focused on exploring the Mancha Amarilla target immediately to the south of the existing resource. In addition, three significant hydrothermal alteration zones, each measuring between 2,000 m and 3,000m in diameter, lie 8-10 km to the north of the main discovery.

Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability as there is no certainty that all or any part of the resources will be converted into reserves. Inferred resources are that part of a mineral resource for which quantity and grade or quality are estimated based on limited geological evidence and sampling. It is reasonably expected that the inferred resources could be upgraded to indicated resources with continued exploration.

About the Escalones February 2022 PEA Study

On February 15, 2022, the Company announced the following outstanding results of the Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") for the Escalones project:

  • $1,499.6 million post-tax NPV8 at $3.60 /lb. life-of-mine (20-year LOM) copper price
  • $1,822.4 million post-tax NPV8 at US$4.00 /lb. life-of-mine copper price
  • First 5-years average annual Copper production of 124.7 Mlb. (56,520 tonnes); LOM average 114.9 Mlb. (52,131 tonnes)
  • First 5-years average C1 (Cash Operating) costs of $1.13 /lb. Cu; LOM average C1 costs $1.19 /lb. Cu
  • First 5-years average annual EBITDA $290.8 million; LOM average annual EBITDA $265.1 million
  • Initial Capital (CAPEX) cost of $438.4 million (from construction decision)
  • Life-of-mine Sustaining Capital of $192.5 million
  • Conventional heap leach, SX-EW processing facilities, targeting 50,000 tonnes of heap leach tonnes placed per day

The exceptional results of the Escalones PEA confirm what we at World Copper have always believed - that Escalones has the potential to be one of the most impressive copper properties in South America. Escalones now joins a peer group of large-scale, study-backed, development stage assets. Escalones has several attributes that make it attractive for development including robust economics, strong value metrics and the potential of rapid returns for a comparably low capital investment. The results of the PEA, combined with Escalones' large land package and resource expansion potential, make it a truly outstanding project.

The Preliminary Economic Assessment is considered preliminary in nature and includes Inferred Mineral Resources that are considered too speculative, geologically, to have the economic considerations applied that would allow classification as Mineral Reserves. There is no certainty that the results of the PEA will be realized. All values are reported in US dollars unless otherwise noted.

About Zonia

The Zonia project is in Yavapai County, Arizona, and consists of 261 mineral claims and additional surface rights, all totaling 4,279.55 acres. It is a near-surface, copper-oxide resource and a brownfields site having already been mined in the late 1960s and '70s. The Project is at the PEA level and has been significantly de-risked with over 50,000 metres of drilling completed to date and with substantial amounts of detailed engineering completed. Further details can be found here.

Pan Global Reports Additional Drilling Success at La Romana Target, Escacena Project, Spain

Pan Global Reports Additional Drilling Success at La Romana Target, Escacena Project, Spain

  • 26.9m at 0.5% Cu, 0.13% Sn, including 1.6m at 1.6% Cu, 0.08% Sn and 1.3m at 1.0% Cu, 0.53% Sn in LRD120
  • 10.1m at 0.8% Cu, 0.18% Sn, 3.1g/t Ag, including 0.3m at 17.3% Cu, 0.56% Sn, 59.3g/t Ag in LRD125
  • Follow-up drilling underway and plans include testing 6 new targets

Pan Global Resources Inc. (TSXV: PGZ) (OTC Pink: PGNRF) ("Pan Global" or the "Company") is pleased to announce new drill results at the Company's 100%-owned Escacena Project in the Iberian Pyrite Belt, southern Spain. Reported results comprise eleven drill holes at the La Romana target and two drill holes on geophysics targets at La Romana North.

Tim Moody, Pan Global President and CEO states: "The latest results add to the down-dip extent of the main copper and tin zone with hole LRD120 intercepting approximately 27m thickness with grades of 0.5% Cu and 0.13% Sn within a 40m wide copper mineralized interval, and 10.1m at 0.8% Cu and 0.18% Sn in hole LRD125. The results include narrow intervals with some exceptionally high grades, including 17.3% Cu, 0.56% Sn and 59.3g/t Ag over 0.25m. The new drill results continue to show potential for the near surface high grade mineralization to continue west for several hundred meters in the direction of the historic La Romana mine workings. Drilling has also successfully defined the southern margin of the La Romana mineralization and shows supergene copper mineralization extending over the footwall to the main copper zone. Assay results are pending for an additional fourteen drill holes from La Romana."
