About the Escacena Project
The Escacena Project includes a large, plus 5,760-hectare land package controlled 100% by Pan Global in the eastern area 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 Grupo Mexico are in advanced permitting to restart mining. Escacena includes numerous large gravity anomalies that are mostly untested.
The La Romana gravity anomaly was the first target tested and resulted in the discovery of potentially significant copper-tin mineralization from surface and extending over more than 1.2 kilometers of strike, and open in several directions. Pan Global has completed more than 130 drill holes at La Romana. The mineralization indicates a simple geometry potentially suitable to open pit mining.
The first drill holes at the La Jarosa target also confirmed copper mineralization and remains open. The company is now preparing to commence drilling on other targets in the project area.
