Tim Moody and the team in Spain continue to bring us good news.
Pan Global has the potential to get much larger.
Pan Global Drilling Continues to Expand Near Surface Copper-Tin Mineralization at La Romana and Drilling Commences at Nearby La Jarosa, Escacena Project, Southern Spain
• 10.1m at 2.5% CuEq, including 5.35m at 4.2% CuEq
• Assays up to 2.96% Sn associated with cassiterite
• La Romana mineralization expanded further to the West
• Drilling commences at the La Jarosa target within the recently granted Al Andaluz permit
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 3, 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 mineralized target area at the Escacena Project in the Iberian Pyrite Belt, southern Spain. Exploration is also in progress on the adjoining Al Andaluz permit area within the Escacena Project where drilling has commenced at the La Jarosa target.
Tim Moody, Pan Global President and CEO states: "The latest results further confirm that high-grade copper mineralization continues near to surface at La Romana, with recent drilling returning more than 2% Cu over 10.1m from less than 10m below surface. The new drill results also extend the copper and tin mineralization to the west and show that the mineralization is wide open in several directions. It should also be noted that further results are also awaited for more than 20 drill holes."
Mr. Moody added: "These latest results are very encouraging and continue to expand the near surface high-grade copper/tin target at La Romana, the first of several gravity targets on the Escacena Project. Following the recent grant of the Al Andaluz permit we have rapidly mobilized a drill rig and are excited to have commenced drilling the first hole at the La Jarosa copper target, some 4 km from La Romana. An extensive exploration program is also now in progress, including gravity and surface geochemistry surveys, and a high-resolution airborne electromagnetic survey due to begin within the next two-weeks. Once data is available from this work the Company plans to commence a substantial follow up drill program throughout 2022."

The latest drill results are from nine holes completed in 2021 in the Phase 4 drill program at the La Romana discovery. Drill holes LRD90 and 92 tested near-surface extension up-dip from previous drill holes LRD05 and LRD31, respectively. Drill holes LRD98, 99 and 104 were aimed at extending the mineralization to the west. LRD 82, 83 and 88 tested down-dip extensions and hole LRD87 tested for mineralized extensions in the far east of the target area.
Drill hole locations are shown in Figure 1 and summary cross sections with holes LRD83 to LRD90 are provided in Figure 2 above.
Drill hole collar information is provided in Table 1 below. Assay results are summarized in Table 2. The drill holes were all inclined towards the south or southwest and all reported drill intervals are approx. true thickness.
The results add near-surface copper and tin mineralization in the west and extends the mineralization to more than 1.2km strike. The latest drill results continue to show that the mineralization remains wide open in the west, up-dip and down-dip in some sections. The copper mineralization appears to plunge to the northeast where it remains open.
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 only observed 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.
Drill hole LRD82 is located approx. 50m down-dip from hole LRD31 with the copper mineralization thinning in this area with negligible tin content. Results include:
• 1.3m at 1.3% CuEq (1.22% Cu, 51ppm Sn, 3.6g/t Ag) from 67m (downhole)
• 8.4m at 0.5% CuEq (0.46% Cu, 0.015% Sn, 2.8g/t Ag) from 106.4m, including
o 1.1m at 1.17% CuEq (1.04% Cu, 0.02% Sn, 6.7g/t Ag)
Drill hole LRD83 confirms a 30m wide zone of copper and tin mineralization remains wide open approx. 50m down-dip in the west of the drill area. Results include:
• 30.2m at 0.8% CuEq (0.42% Cu, 0.09% Sn, 3g/t Ag) from 122.3m, including
o 9m at 1.0% CuEq (0.51% Cu, 0.12% Sn, 3.7g/t Ag) and
o 6m at 1.0% CuEq (0.63% Cu, 0.08% Sn, 5.5g/t Ag), including
1.05m at 3.3% CuEq (1.91% Cu, 0.3% Sn, 23.9g/t Ag) plus 0.16g/t Au, 1.0% Pb, 1.5% Zn
Drill hole LRD87 was a shallow test in the east and intersected a 27.4m thick mineralized zone grading approx. 0.5% Pb+Zn (0.18% Pb, 1.51% Zn) from 94m.
Drill hole LRD88 tested approx. 50m down dip from hole LRD53 showing a shallow low grade oxide copper zone and several narrow intervals with anomalous copper, tin, cobalt, lead, zinc and silver. Results include:
• 12.4m at 0.2% Cu (oxide) from 16m
Drill hole LRD90 intersected near-surface high grade copper mineralization immediately beneath post-mineral cover sediments, extending the mineralization approx. 20m up-dip from hole LRD05. Results include:
• 10.1m at 2.5% CuEq (2.02% Cu, 0.09% Sn, 9.3g/t Ag) from 10.9m, including
o 5.35m at 4.2% CuEq (3.5% Cu, 0.14% Sn, 15.2g/t Ag)
Drill hole LRD92 tested the near-surface copper mineralization up-dip from LRD31 in the east of the drill area. The hole intersected a shallow zone of low-grade oxide copper mineralization and several deeper thin semi-massive sulphide layers. Results include:
• 11.25m at 0.4% CuEq (oxide; 0.27% Cu, 0.03% Sn, 1.7g/t Ag) from 26.95m, including
o 4.95m at 0.6% CuEq (oxide + chalcocite; 0.4% Cu, 0.04% Sn, 2g/t Ag)
• 0.55m at 1.1% CuEq (0.86% Cu, 0.05% Sn, 7g/t Ag) from 61m
Drill hole LRD98 confirmed that the copper mineralization continues in the far west of the drill area and remains wide open. Results include:
• 17m at 0.8% CuEq (0.74% Cu, 0.011% Sn, 2g/t Ag) from 107m, including

Drill hole LRD104 was drilled approx. 50m up-dip from hole LRD98 and shows the mineralization remains open up-dip and along-strike to the west. Results include:
• 0.3m at 12% CuEq (0.5% Cu, 2.96% Sn, 2.5g/t Ag) from 44.1m
• 16m at 0.7% CuEq (0.57% Cu, 0.04% Sn, 1.9g/t Ag) from 80m, including

Assay results are pending for an additional 23 completed drill holes including several drill holes with strong copper mineralization evident in drill core. A total of 117 drill holes have now been completed at the La Romana discovery.
Al Andaluz Exploration Program
A major exploration program is planned for the recently granted Al Andaluz permit area, including:
• a high resolution airborne electromagnetic (AEM) survey due to commence in the next two weeks;
• regional ground gravity surveys over the entire area;
• soil and rock geochemical sampling survey over selected targets;
• ground geophysics over targets selected from the AEM;
• detailed gravity and geochemical surveys over selected targets; and
The 2022 plan includes up to 20,000m of drilling at the Escacena Project (approx. 40 to 60 holes), most of which will test targets generated from the regional surveys. A significant follow-up drill program (meterage to be determined) is also expected in the second half of 2022.
Drilling has commenced on the La Jarosa target in Al Andaluz designed to follow-up the historic Exxon drill hole PJ2 1985 which intersected 9.5m at 1.42% Cu. A second drill hole is also planned to test dip extensions to the mineralization. The Exxon drill hole was never followed up and the drill core is no longer available to verify the results. The Company makes no representation as to the reliability or accuracy of the historical Exxon drill results.
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).
