Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 5, 2022) - Pan Global Resources Inc. (TSXV: PGZ) (OTC Pink: PGNRF) ("Pan Global" or the "Company") is pleased to announce new drill results and the expansion of the La Romana target area ("La Romana") at the Escacena Project ("Escacena") in the Iberian Pyrite Belt, southern Spain. Exploration is also in progress on new targets in the surrounding area with drilling also ongoing at the La Jarosa target ("La Jarosa"), located approx. 4km northeast of La Romana.

Tim Moody, Pan Global President and CEO states: "The latest results further confirm the copper mineralization at La Romana remains wide open to the west from near surface and also down dip. Results for drill hole LRD114 included an excellent high-grade intersection which highlights the potential for additional high grade in the east. We are mobilizing a second drill rig to recommence drilling at La Romana where we have a further twenty drill holes planned."

Mr. Moody added: "An extensive exploration program is also in progress on multiple new targets at Escacena, with results pending for the recently completed high resolution heliborne electromagnetic and magnetic survey. A ground Induced Polarity ("IP") survey is also about to commence. Three follow-up drill holes have been completed at La Jarosa with results awaited to help vector to additional copper mineralization."

The results continue to show that the mineralization remains wide open in several directions (see Figure 5 above).

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 predominant 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 zinc in the east. A zone of oxidation and supergene copper mineralization is also locally present in the upper levels of the deposit, with chalcocite overprinting/replacing primary sulphide.

Assay results are pending for an additional six completed drill holes at La Romana. Results are also pending for three additional drill holes completed at the La Jarosa target. An additional twenty drill holes are planned at La Romana largely designed to investigate extensions to the copper-tin mineralization. Regional exploration is continuing to help delineate additional targets for drilling, with ground geophysics (gravity and IP), soil geochemistry surveys and geological mapping in progress. Results are also pending for the recently completed heliborne electromagnetic and magnetic survey and metallurgical test work.


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).
