Copper, one of the primary minerals we target for exploration, holds a special significance in the European Union. The EU has recognized the importance of copper as a critical raw material and announced in March 2023 that copper would be included as one of 34 materials designated under the Raw Materials Act.Read More
The inclusion of copper on the Critical Minerals and Metals List is expected to provide direct benefit to Pan Global’s Escacena copper project in Spain’s Iberian Pyrite Belt. The Iberian Pyrite Belt is one of the most important mineral provinces in Europe and arguably the most significant Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide mining district for copper and other metals globally. The EU's announcement underscores the importance of Pan Global’s copper project, which has the potential to supply the EU with a reliable source of this essential metal. In a recent study conducted by the European Commission, it was reported that the EU imports 48% of its current copper requirements, the majority of which derives from Chilean exploration and extraction and from Chinese processing facilities.
Moreover, the EU's emphasis on responsible and sustainable sourcing of critical minerals is expected to drive improvements in environmental, social, and governance practices within the copper industry. This will benefit not only the EU but also the global community by reducing the environmental impact of mining and promoting fair labour practices.
