VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – (January 8, 2024) – Pan Global Resources Inc. (“Pan Global” or the "Company") (TSX-V: PGZ; OTCQX: PGZFF; FSE: 2EU) is pleased to announce results for nine new drillholes from the La Romana copper-tin-silver (Cu-Sn-Ag) 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:
including 5.7m at 2.70% CuEq1 (2.58% Cu, 0.03% Sn, 6.2 g/t Ag);
including 3.4m at 2.85% CuEq1 (2.72% Cu, 0.04% Sn, 3.2 g/t Ag);
Including 6.1m at 1.50% CuEq1 (1.42% Cu, 0.02% Sn, 3.5g/t Ag);
including 6m at 1.36% CuEq1 (1.09% Cu, 0.10% Sn, 2.6 g/t Ag);
“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.
Figure 1 – Gravity anomaly map for the La Romana target showing drillhole locations, selected new results, and cross-section locations A-A’ (Figure 2) and B-B’ (Figure 3). The gravity anomaly highlights potential for the copper mineralization to expand further west. The new results show several higher-grade intercepts coincident with a DHEM target (approx. dimensions 290m x 90m) that remains open.
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.

The results show higher copper grades in Zone B continuing down-dip to the north coincident with a DHEM conductor target. Yellow box = new results.

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.
About Pan Global Resources
Pan Global Resources Inc. is actively targeting copper-rich mineral deposits, given copper’s compelling supply-demand fundamentals and outlook for strong long-term prices as a critical metal for global electrification and energy transition. The Company’s flagship Escacena Project is located in the prolific Iberian Pyrite Belt in southern Spain, where a favourable permitting track record, excellent infrastructure, mining and professional expertise, and support for copper as a Strategic Raw Material by the European Commission collectively define a tier-one jurisdiction for mining investment. The Pan Global team comprises proven talent in exploration, discovery, development, and mine operations - all of which are committed to operating safely and with utmost respect for the environment and our partnered communities. The Company is a member, and operates under the principles of, the United Nations Global Compact.
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.
