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

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - August 9, 2022) - 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."

Mr. Moody added: "Extensive exploration over the entire Escacena project area, including gravity, IP and surface geochemistry surveys, together with results of the recent heliborne electromagnetic survey, is highlighting multiple new high priority targets. The current plan includes testing at least six new targets in 2022."

La Romana Highlights include:

  • 26.9m at 0.5% Cu, 0.13% Sn, 2.6g/t Ag from 98.6m in LRD120, including
    • 0.3m at 1.5% Cu, 1.8% Sn, 11.5g/t Ag

The results add near-surface copper and tin mineralization down-dip in the north of the La Romana target area and help to delineate the southern boundary of the mineralized area where near surface supergene copper mineralization has been confirmed extending south from the main copper zone to the footwall. The latest drill results continue to show that the copper and tin mineralization remains open to the west in the direction of the historic La Romana mine workings and down-dip to the north.

Primary mineralization is characterized by stockwork veins, semi-massive sulphides and bands of massive sulphide, with chalcopyrite and secondary chalcocite as the main copper minerals and cassiterite as the only observed tin mineral. The copper mineralization is also associated with elevated levels of silver, as well as locally elevated cobalt and gold. A metal zonation is also apparent, progressing from copper and tin in the west to copper and zinc in the east.

Drill hole LRD120 is located approx. 50m down-dip from hole LRD07 and fills a gap in the drilling between holes LRD18 and LRD43. The hole intersected a broad zone of visible chalcopyrite and cassiterite mineralization from approximately 86m down-hole depth and shows tin assay values up to 1.8% Sn. Best results include:

  • 39.15m at 0.4% Cu, 0.10% Sn, 2.3g/t Ag from 86.35m, including
    • 1.3m at 0.7% Cu, 0.13% Sn, 6.5g/t Ag and
    • 26.9m at 0.5% Cu, 0.13% Sn, 2.6g/t Ag, includes
      • 0.3m at 1.5% Cu, 1.8% Sn, 11.5g/t Ag
      • 1.6m at 1.7% Cu, 0.08% Sn, 6.8g/t Ag
      • 1.3m at 1.0% Cu, 0.53% Sn, 8.7g/t Ag

Drill hole LRD125 extends the copper-tin mineralisation approximately 50m down-dip to the north of hole LRD96 and intersected a 26m wide zone of visible copper mineralization from approximately 89m down-hole. This includes a 0.25m thick interval with exceptionally high-grade copper and tin. Best results include:

  • 10.1m at 0.8% Cu, 0.18% Sn, 3.1g/t Ag from 105m, including
    • 0.25m at 17.3% Cu, 0.56% Sn, 59.3g/t Ag

Drill hole LRD118 tested a 100m gap between drill holes LRD114 and 29, and intersected several close-spaced, high-grade copper intervals with plus 1% Cu between 37.55m and 112.70m down-hole depth. This includes mainly chalcopyrite and lesser secondary chalcocite, and sphalerite and galena in the lower-most interval. The hole confirmed that high copper grades continue down-dip from LRD114, which returned 6.7m at 3.1% Cu and 17.5g/t Ag (PGZ News Release, April 5, 2022). Results include:

  • 1.35m at 1.7% Cu, 11.3g/t Ag, 0.2g/t Au from 37.55m
  • 0.3m at 16.9% Cu, 0.03% Sn, 78.6g/t Ag, 0.17g/t Au from 52.7m
  • 0.3m at 2.6% Cu, 9.2g/t Ag from 69.2m
  • 0.75m at 4.4% Cu, 21g/t Ag from 95.15m
  • 0.2m at 2.2% Cu, 30.8g/t Ag, 1,13% Pb, 1.44% Zn from 112.5m

Drill holes LRD111, 121, 122 and 126 at the northern limits in the west of the main target area intersected multiple thin copper-tin intervals. The results indicate decreasing mineralization down-dip towards the northwest and show grade and thickness increasing up-dip. The mineralization remains open in the direction of the historic La Romana mine workings located approximately 300m to the west.

Drill holes LRD117, 116, 119 and 124, from east to west along the southern limits of the mineralized area, intersected copper mineralization immediately beneath 20 to 30m of cover sediments. Results show that the shallow supergene chalcocite mineralization present locally over the main copper zone also extends over the footwall. Selected results include 13.35m @ 0.33% Cu, 1.1 g/t Ag from 34.65m in LRD117, 21.05m @ 0.2% Cu and 1.3 g/t Ag from 30m in LRD 116 and 0.3m @ 8% Cu and 14.4 g/t Ag from 106.25m down-hole in LRD117.

Drill hole LRD97 was drilled 750m to the north of the main La Romana target testing an IP chargeability anomaly. The hole intersected approximately 40m of anomalous copper from 190m down-hole associated with chlorite altered and silicified dacitic volcanics, including several intervals 0.3 to 1.6m thick with grades from 0.4 to 1.5% Cu. The sequence of altered volcanics with copper mineralization indicates further exploration potential and potentially a separate hydrothermal event in the hanging wall to the La Romana mineralization.

Drill hole LRD108 was drilled 450m north of the La Romana deposit testing an IP chargeability anomaly. The hole intersected a similar package of alternating shales and dacitic volcanics as in LRD97 with less intense alteration and no significant copper mineralization. However, the hole is weakly anomalous (5 to 10 times background) in lead and zinc over an approx. 70m-wide interval from 160m down-hole with up to 0.4% Pb + Zn, indicating the outer halo to a potentially large hydrothermal system.

Assay results are pending for an additional fourteen completed drill holes at La Romana. A total of 139 drill holes have now been completed at the La Romana discovery and drilling is ongoing.

Exploration is in progress to refine drill targets over several large gravity anomalies immediately south of La Jarosa at Pilar, Pilar South and Bravo Norte. Interpretation of the recent heliborne EM survey is continuing and confirms a conductor anomaly coincident with the La Romana copper mineralization and shows multiple new untested conductor targets. Current plans include up to sixty additional drill holes and testing of six new targets, which is a focus for the remainder of 2022.

QA/QC
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).
