PAN GLOBAL INTERSECTS 1.6% COPPER OVER 9.7 METERS CONFIRMING CONTINUITY OF LA ROMANA COPPER-TIN-SILVER DISCOVERY OVER 1.4KM

 

 

 

 

 

Pan Global Resources Inc. (TSX-V: PGZ) (OTCQX: PGZFF) (FSE: 2EU) is pleased to announce results for nine new drillholes from the La Romana copper-tin-silver discovery in the Company’s 100% owned Escacena Project in the Iberian Pyrite Belt, southern Spain. The drill holes are part of a 25-hole program aimed at delineating the western extension of the La Romana deposit.

 

The significance of these drill results:

  • The near surface copper mineralization is extended more than 50m west and is now continuous for a total strike length of 1.4km, remaining open for further expansion along strike to the northwest and down-dip
  • A new higher grade (1%-plus copper) sector has been identified with grades ranging as high as 7.7% copper over 1.7m. This mineralization is coincident with a 290m x 90m down-hole electromagnetic (DHEM) target, providing a strong guide to potential extensions for future drilling

 

Drilling Highlights:

  • LRD173: 9.7m at 1.69% CuEq1 (1.61% Cu, 0.02% Sn, 3.8 g/t Ag) from 99m, including 5.7m at 2.70% CuEq1 (2.58% Cu, 0.03% Sn, 6.2 g/t Ag);
  • LRD177: 8m at 1.48% CuEq1 (1.21% Cu, 0.10% Sn, 1.5 g/t Ag) from 55m, including 3.4m at 2.85% CuEq1 (2.72% Cu, 0.04% Sn, 3.2 g/t Ag);
  • LRD179: 18.1m at 0.65% CuEq1 (0.61% Cu, 0.01% Sn, 1.5g/t Ag) from 108m, including 6.1m at 1.50% CuEq1 (1.42% Cu, 0.02% Sn, 3.5g/t Ag);
  • LRD172: 12m at 0.74% CuEq1 (0.60% Cu, 0.05% Sn, 1.4 g/t Ag) from 76m, including 6m at 1.36% CuEq1 (1.09% Cu, 0.10% Sn, 2.6 g/t Ag);
  • Drilling to resume in 2024, including five holes in the current plan at La Romana

 

“These drill results highlight a significant new zone of higher-grade copper at La Romana that remains wide open to the northwest. Drilling continues to grow the La Romana deposit, demonstrating good continuity of the mineralization over 1.4 kilometers strike length, and from surface to more than 200m down-dip. We look forward to resuming drilling shortly and advancing the growing pipeline of high priority exploration targets in the Escacena Project, particularly the copper/gold discovery at Cañada Honda and high-priority Bravo target following access,” said Tim Moody, President and CEO of Pan Global.

 

“Ongoing exploration continues to demonstrate multi-discovery potential with numerous targets not yet tested. The Project is located in a tier one mining jurisdiction, in close proximity with producing copper mines and advanced development projects, and excellent infrastructure,” said Mr. Moody.

 

Drillhole locations are shown in Figure 1 below. Drillhole assay results are summarized in Table 1 and collar details are presented in Table 2 below.

 

The main La Romana copper mineralization occurs in two highly continuous layers, Zone B and Zone C, commencing from surface or directly below a thin cover of post-mineral sediments. The mineralization includes primary chalcopyrite and minor bornite, overprinted at shallow depths by secondary/supergene copper sulphide (chalcocite) and an overlying oxide zone with local native copper and copper oxides. The tin mineralization is cassiterite, the preferred mineral for commercial extraction.

1 Copper Equivalent = CuEq. CuEq is calculated using Cu, Sn, and Ag grades. Metallurgical recoveries include 86% for Cu, 68% for Sn and 56% for Ag, from preliminary studies by Wardell Armstrong International and MinePro. The CuEq calculation uses US$ 8,693/tonne Cu, US$ 29,069/tonne Sn and US$ 23.72/oz Ag, corresponding to the three-year monthly price averages to July 2023. The effective formula is [CuEq %] = [Cu %] + 2.6440 * [Sn %] + 0.0057 * [Ag ppm]

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. Escacena is located near operating mines at Las Cruces and Riotinto and is immediately adjacent to the former Aznalcóllar and Los Frailes mines where Minera Los Frailes/Grupo Mexico is in the final permitting stage to recommence mining. The Escacena Project hosts the La Romana copper-tin-silver discovery and a number of other prospective targets, including Cañada Honda, Romana North, Bravo, Barbacena, El Pozo, San Pablo, Zarcita, Hornitos, La Jarosa, and Romana Deep.

QA/QC Procedures

 

Core size was HQ (63mm) and all samples were ½ core. Nominal sample size was 1m core length and ranged from 0.5 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). 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).
