Pan Global Resources Announces the Commencement of Drilling at the Aguilas Project and Provides General Exploration Update
TSX VENTURE: PGZ
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 13, 2018) - Pan Global Resources Inc. (TSXV: PGZ) ("Pan Global" or the "Company") is pleased to announce commencement of the first exploration drill program at its Aguilas Project in Spain. The planned program includes approximately 15-23 drill holes ranging from 100 to 230 metres depth for a total of 3000 to 4000 metres. Drill pads are currently being prepared and a drill rig is mobilizing to site with drilling set to commence next week.
Approximately 50% of the planned drilling will test targets on the Torrubia Cu trend and 50% will test targets along a 6 kilometre segment of the Zumajo Pb-Zn-Ag trend extending from the historical San Juan mine to the San Cayetano mine workings. This program includes drill holes testing for IOCG style mineralisation and geophysics anomalies beneath the highest soil Cu geochemistry at the Torrubia and Cerro Aguilas targets. On the Zumajo trend, the program includes drill holes beneath the peak Pb-Zn-Ag soil geochemistry, testing extensions of the Pb Ag mineralisation beneath the main mine workings from San Juan to San Cayetano, and testing several IP resistivity/chargeability and/or EM anomalies along the structure.
As previously reported, exploration to-date at the Aguilas Project has identified several large Cu (Co, Ag, Au) targets on the NE-SW Torrubia Trend and several large Pb, Zn, Ag targets associated with a series of historical Pb-Ag mines on the 20 km long, NW-SE oriented Zumajo Trend. Geophysical surveying conducted earlier this year confirmed a combination of IP chargeability and resistivity anomalies coincident with geochemistry anomalies on the Torrubia and Zumajo trend. None of the targets have been previously drill tested.
The company has identified several new large linear structures parallel to the Torrubia and Zumajo trends with potential for similar styles of Cu and Pb Zn Ag mineralisation. Soil sampling is in progress on the recently identified Hierba Buena structure located 2km to the east of the Torrubia trend. Results received for 225 soil samples collected to-date on the Hierba Buena target highlight a 1.2 x 0.2 km copper anomaly with soil values up to 286 ppm Cu (background <10 ppm Cu) and rock grab sample values up to 1.57% Cu, 749ppm Co and 5.3g/t Ag. The Hierba Buena structure appears to extend an additional 8km.
The Company completed the second option payment of CAD $150,000 and the granting of 2.5 million shares due on September 7th as part of the Purchase Option Agreement for acquisition of the shares in Spanish company Minera Aguilas SLU (MASL). The Company already owns 70% of MASL, which owns the mineral rights over the Aguilas Project.
Tim Moody, President and CEO, commented, "The company is looking forward to commencing the first drilling on targets in the Aguilas Project. There has been no previous drilling on the Torrubia Cu trend and no previous drilling beneath the main underground mines and small pits on the Zumajo Pb Zn Ag trend. The drill holes will provide a much better understanding of the geology, structure and nature of the mineralisation for future drilling. The recent exploration results on the Hierba Buena structure and identification of several other large structures also underlines the broader exploration potential in the Project area."
