VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – (July 3, 2024) – Pan Global Resources Inc. (“Pan Global” or the "Company") (TSX-V: PGZ; OTCQX: PGZFF; FRA: 2EU) is pleased to announce that exploration has commenced at the Company’s 100%-owned, 5,653-hectare (56.5 km2) Carmenes copper, nickel, gold, cobalt project (“Carmenes” or the “Project”), located in the province of León, northern Spain. The area has a history of mining and the Project is 70 kilometers southeast of Orvana Minerals’ Orovalle gold, copper, silver mining operation in the same geological belt. 

“The Carmenes Project is being advanced in conjunction with the Escacena Project and represents a compelling addition to Pan Global’s exploration pipeline in Spain, targeting exceptionally high-grade copper, nickel, and cobalt, which are all metals critical for the global energy transition, plus a potentially significant association with gold,” said Tim Moody, Pan Global’s President & CEO.“The Project includes the former Divina-Providencia (“Providencia”) and Profunda copper, cobalt, and nickel mines, both with excellent potential to significantly expand the mineralization laterally and at depth. These types of breccia pipe deposits typically occur in clusters, and the area is highly prospective for discovery of additional breccia pipes.” 

In addition to the early stage exploration work at Carmenes, resource delineation drilling is ongoing at the La Romana target in the Company’s flagship Escacena Project in the Iberian Pyrite Belt, southern Spain. Further drill results will be reported as soon as available, including results for recently completed drill holes at the rapidly growing Cañada Honda target. Encouraging progress is also being made to access the Company’s large Bravo target located immediately to the east of La Romana.

Investor webcast:

The Company will host an investor webcast with CEO Tim Moody on Tuesday, July 9, 2024 at 1 p.m. Eastern Time / 10 a.m. Pacific Time to discuss the Carmenes Project opportunity and provide an update on the ongoing work at the flagship Escacena Project. A Q&A session will follow a short presentation. Please register in advance: https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_n-hhdVY1Qy2_M4XzfCIIgw 

Figure 1 - Carmenes Project mineral rights and target locations, northern Spain. The project is approximately 55km north by paved road from the provincial capital León. Targets include former mine localities at Providencia, Profunda, Fontun and Valverdin. The León region has a centuries-old mining history. 

Planned Exploration and New Results at Carmenes

The Carmenes Project is a highly prospective area for carbonate-hosted breccia “pipe” style mineralization, with evidence of high grades of copper, nickel, cobalt and gold. Initial exploration priorities include the former Profunda and Providencia mine areas, targeting extensions to the copper-nickel-cobalt mineralization beneath the mine workings and recently mapped gossans. Numerous other smaller historical mine workings occur throughout the project area, highlighting the potential for additional breccia pipes and other styles of mineralization. 

Pan Global has commenced systematic exploration in the Carmenes Project following an initial phase of reconnaissance sampling and a detailed review of past exploration in the area. The program includes detailed mapping and surface geochemistry surveys, drill planning at Profunda and Providencia, and follow-up of targets identified from past exploration. 

Table 1 (below), includes assay results from new rock samples recovered by Pan Global from within the underground mine workings and surface gossans at Providencia and Profunda, and previously unreported underground sample results acquired with the mineral rights from the previous owners, “Sociedad de Investigación y Explotación Minera de Castilla y León, S.A.” (SIEMCALSA). A plan map of the Providencia target and gossan sample locations is provided in Figure 2 (below). Cross sections through the Providencia and Profunda mines with sample locations are provided in Figure 3. 

The Pan Global and SIEMCALSA rock samples were assayed using the same laboratory and sampling protocols. The underground samples consisted of rock chips from the walls of former mine tunnels/stopes. Average grades from the combined Pan Global and SIEMCALSA underground samples at Providencia and Profunda, include:

Providencia (22 samples) – 2.53% Cu, 1.28% Ni, 0.68% Co, 0.6g/t Au, 3.1g/t Ag

Profunda (8 samples) – 10.3% Cu, 0.18% Ni, 0.19% Co, 0.1g/t Au, 15.6g/t Ag

Reconnaissance mapping by Pan Global at the Providencia target has identified breccias hosting the historical mine workings, and surface gossans, over an area more than 300 x 100 meters. The target area at Profunda has similar dimensions. Assay results for six samples of gossans (rock chips of gossan outcrops and float) collected at Providencia average 3.8g/t Au, 0.41% Cu, 0.28% Ni, 0.10% Co and 3.7g/t Ag. The results highlight additional untested potential for significant gold and copper-nickel-cobalt mineralization beneath the gossans outside the mine workings.

Carmenes Project background

The Carmenes Project area comprises three Investigation Permit’s (total 4,028 hectares) that were acquired 100% by Pan Global from the Spanish state-owned exploration company SIEMCALSA together with all associated exploration data, and two additional granted Investigation Permits (total 1,625 hectares) that were obtained as a result of mineral rights applications by the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Minera Águila Sociedad Limitada (MASL). There are no royalties on any of the mineral rights. 

The Profunda and Providencia copper-cobalt-nickel mines were operated continuously between 1860 and 1880, and intermittently until the 1930s. Mine grades (unverified) include 1.9% Cu, 1.8% Ni, 0.9% Co at Providencia and 2.2% Cu, 1.5% Ni, 0.9% Co at Profunda(1). Elevated uranium also occurs in the upper levels at Profunda, in the supergene zone. The mines produced copper and cobalt concentrates, both containing nickel. Underground mining extended to approximately 100m depth below surface at Providencia and 260m depth at Profunda, and mineralization remains open to depth and along strike at both. A smelter was installed in the 1920s for the mines but was destroyed during the Spanish civil war in the 1930s, and further mining was affected by water ingress in the deeper levels of the mines. Subsequent plans to restart mining did not eventuate. Artisanal mining occurred elsewhere in the area to the 1960s.

SIEMCALSA began exploring in the area from 2009 to 2017, and through a Joint Venture (JV) on part of the area with Riedel Resources (ASX: RIE) from 2017 to 2019 when exploration stopped. SIEMCALSA focussed on four target areas, Profunda, Providencia, Fontun, and Valverdin. The exploration data indicates numerous other untested targets that require follow-up exploration.

Four diamond drill holes were completed during the SIEMCALSA JV with Riedel Resources, testing IP-chargeability targets. This included hole CMN-3, that drilled in the main breccia at the Profunda mine, intersecting grades of 7.72% Cu, 0.11% Co, 0.09% Ni, 0.44% U and 0.24% Zn over 1.95m in the wall of a 7-meter-wide previously mined stope(2). The Providencia mine area was outside the JV and not drilled.

Qualified Person

Alvaro Merino, Vice President Exploration for Pan Global Resources and a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approves the scientific and technical information in this media release, including the exploration and sampling by SIEMCALSA. Mr. Merino is not independent of the Company.


Rock samples delivered to the ALS sample preparation facility in Seville were prepared and assayed at the ALS facility in Ireland. All samples were crushed, split and pulverized using methods CRU-31, SPL-22Y and PUL-31. Gold analysis was by 30gm Fire assay with AA finish (Au-AA23). Multi element analysis was undertaken using a 4 acid digest with ICP-AES finish (ME-ICP61). Overgrade samples were analyzed using 4 acid digest with ICP-AES finish (OG62). Certified reference materials were inserted at a 1/25 samples. The grab sample results are selective by nature, and may not be representative of average grades for the mineralization.
