VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – (January 11, 2024) – Pan Global Resources Inc. (“Pan Global” or the "Company") (TSX-V: PGZ; OTCQX: PGZFF; FSE: 2EU) is pleased to announce results for the first drillhole in an 11-hole step out drill program at the Cañada Honda copper-gold (Cu-Au) discovery, on the Company’s 100% owned Escacena Project in the Iberian Pyrite Belt, southern Spain. The program is targeting extensions to the Cañada Honda copper-gold mineralization discovered in 2023. Results are pending for two additional completed drillholes.
- 1.35m at 0.68% Cu, 12.4g/t Au, 3.1g/t Ag, 0.09% Co, and
- 6.8m at 1.48% Cu, 0.65g/t Au, 7.2g/t Ag
“These are the highest-grade drill intercepts to-date at Cañada Honda, and a very encouraging start to the follow-up drill program that commenced in November 2023. There is excellent potential to expand the copper and gold mineralization and identify areas of higher grade at this new discovery,” said Tim Moody, President and CEO of Pan Global.
“Successful drilling of geophysics targets at La Romana and Cañada Honda underscores the prospect of further discoveries among the numerous other targets in the Escacena Project.”
Drillhole locations are shown in Figure 1 below. Drillhole assay results are summarized in Table 1 and drillhole collar details are presented in Table 2 below.

Figure 2 – Cross section A-A’, showing selected assay results and simplified geology for drillhole CHD08. The copper and gold mineralization is coincident with DHEM targets, and includes semi-massive and massive sulphides within a broader, up-to-36m wide, north-dipping zone of stock-work and disseminated sulphide mineralization.

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 with construction anticipated to start in 2024. 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.

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).
James Royall, Vice President Exploration for Pan Global Resources and a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, has approved the scientific and technical information for this media release. Mr. Royall is not independent of the Company.
