Pan Global Resources (TSXV:PGZ) has announced that drilling has begun at the Romana Deep volcanogenic massive sulphide targets at the 100%-owned Escacena Project. Located in Spain, the initial program at the project consists of four widely spaced drill holes and is aimed at providing the first test for the Romana Deep target.

Tim Moody, Pan Global President and CEO, commented in a press release: “Romana Deep is a compelling target featuring a large HEM anomaly extending down-dip from Pan Global’s La Romana copper discovery. Some of the strongest copper mineralization at La Romana exhibits a similar HEM signature and the copper mineralization remains open in the direction of the Romana Deep target. The first of four planned drill holes has commenced at Romana Deep. In addition, drilling continues to the north at the high priority Zarcita target.”

Further processing and interpretation of the Company’s recently completed HEM survey has significantly expanded the previously identified Romana Deep target (see previous news release on September 28, 2022). The Romana Deep target is characterized by a large HEM resistivity low anomaly located down-dip from Pan Global’s near-surface La Romana copper discovery (see Figure 1 above). The target is also less than 5 kilometres southwest of the former producing Aznalcollar open pit copper-zinc mine.

The copper-tin mineralization at La Romana also coincides with HEM resistivity low anomalies, providing a further indicator of potential for additional copper mineralization associated with the Romana Deep HEM target. The target extends northwards from La Romana at a depth of approximately 300m and spans more than 1 km east-west. See Figures 2 and 3 below. An initial four drill holes, 150 to 350 meters apart, totalling approximately 2,000 meters are planned to test some of the strongest resistivity low anomalies within the broader target area.

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. The project is located near operating mines at Las Cruces and Rio Tinto and is immediately adjacent to the former Aznalcollar and Los Frailes mines where Minera Los Frailes/Grupo Mexico is in the permitting stage to restart mining. The Escacena Project hosts the La Romana copper-tin discovery and a number of other prospective targets, including La Jarosa, Hornitos, Zarcita, Romana Deep, Pilar, Bravo and Barbacena.
