VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – (January 30, 2024) – Pan Global Resources Inc. (“Pan Global” or the "Company") (TSX-V: PGZ; OTCQX: PGZFF; FSE: 2EU) is pleased to announce results for two further drillholes from 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. Drilling has resumed, with additional holes planned targeting extensions of Cañada Honda copper and gold mineralization.
“These excellent results provide further indication of size potential and continuity of the copper-gold mineralization at the Cañada Honda target. We are also excited about the results showing significant gold in the structural hanging wall at Cañada Honda,” said Tim Moody, President and CEO of Pan Global.
“The next steps at Cañada Honda include further drilling to test for shallow extensions in the east, where copper-gold soil geochemistry indicates the mineralization comes to surface, and further test a large gravity target that extends for two kilometers to the west.”

Two styles of mineralization are recognized at Cañada Honda:

Figure 2 – Cross section A-A’, showing select assay results and simplified geology for new drillhole CHD09, and hole CHD08 (reported January 11, 2024). The results show copper-gold mineralization beneath a thrust fault, and gold above in the hanging wall.
Figure 3 – Cross section B-B’, showing select assay results and simplified geology for new drillhole CHD10, and hole CHD05 (reported September 8, 2023). The results show copper-gold mineralization extending from surface to 300m downdip.

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 the operating mine at 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 Pan Global’s La Romana copper-tin-silver and Cañada Honda copper-gold discoveries and a number of other prospective targets, including, Bravo, Barbacena, El Pozo, Romana Norte, 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.
