Pan Global Signs Deal to Purchase 100% of Spanish Exploration Licence

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 23, 2017) - Pan Global Resources Inc. ("Pan Global" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PGZ) is pleased to announce the Company has entered into a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Evalam 2003 S.L. (the "Vendor"), a private Spanish company, to purchase 100% of the Vendor's gold / copper / zinc mineral prospect in Spain, subject to a royalty as described below. The Vendor has applied for an exploration license in the provinces of Seville and Huelva, Kingdom of Spain, to conduct evaluation and mineral exploration on a mineral prospect known as the "Escacena Property". The proposed transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including TSXV approval.

The Escacena Property

The Escacena Property covers 68 mining quadriculars or approximately 2,060 hectares in the Iberian Pyrite Belt, on the Western extension of the same trend of volcanic rocks that host large massive sulphide ore deposits at the Aznalcollar, Los Frailes and Las Cruces Mines. It is within 5km of Aznalcollar mine. The project includes an untested gravity anomaly with adjacent copper and gold mineralization. Historical channel sampling along the full length of a mine tunnel along a fault up-dip from the gravity anomaly returned 30m at an average grade of 2.06 grams per tonne gold. From information provided by the Vendor, wide-spaced drilling by Exxon on separate gravity target in the south of the property shows broad intervals of stock work copper mineralization and massive sulphide mineralization under Tertiary sedimentary cover over approximately 1.3 kilometres strike, and is open in several directions. Better intervals include, 4.68 metres at 2.94% copper, 3 metres at 3.24% copper and 2.82 metres at 2.2% copper. The area has not had any modern exploration for 30 years.
