Exploration Drill Holes

Hole CB-103 was drilled to the southwest side of the Ccalla Deposit, 130m to the southwest of Hole CB-108 and 350m to the southeast of Hole CB-69. It intersected 140.3 m of copper mineralization including 68.1m of copper oxide grading 0.21% Cu, successively underlain by 34.5m of mixed mineralization grading 0.21% Cu and then by 37.8m of primary copper mineralization grading 0.22% Cu. Hole CB-103 indicates the potential for additional mineralization to the southwest side of the deposit towards hole CB-69.a

Hole CB-106 was drilled in the south extension of Ccalla East, collared 330m to the east of hole CB-45 and 230m to the northeast of hole CB-57. From surface to 110m, it encountered diorite intrusive with traces of pyrite and chalcopyrite, dense quartz-stockwork veinlets , pervasive argillic alteration and intense iron oxidation, possibly indicating the presence of additional mineralization nearby.

Step Out Drill Holes

Hole CB-102 was a step out hole drilled 100m to the north of previously published hole CB-88 and 60m to the south of hole CB-10. Mineralized leached capping was intersected from surface to a depth of 24.2m, averaging 0.45 g/t Au and within which a 9.7m interval graded 0.07% Cu, 0.70g/t Au and 3.1g/t Ag. Copper oxide mineralization was intercepted from 30.9m to 100.6m, grading 0.50% Cu, 0.06g/t Au and 0.9g/t Ag, including 20.2m averaging 1.08% Cu. Previously published and well-mineralized hole CB-50 is located 140m to the north west of hole CB-102, indicating the continuity of supergene mineralization in the intervening area.

Hole CB-108 was a step out hole drilled to the southwest side of the Ccalla Deposit, parallel to holes CB-103 and CB-107, but respectively 130m to the east and 80m to the west.. Copper oxide mineralization was intersected from surface to 41.3m, grading 0.99% Cu, 0.57g/t Au and 4.0 g/t Ag. This was underlain by 180.5m of primary copper mineralization averaging 0.35% Cu, 0.18 g/t Au and 2.2 g/t Ag, including 37m grading 0.78% Cu, 0.55g/t Au and 4.4 g/t Ag. This intersection is located in a portion of the deposit classified as waste in the most recent resource model, suggesting potential to add resource tonnes in this area.. CB-108 also indicates that mineralization is still open to the west and northwest.

Infill Drill Holes

Hole CB-101 was collared parallel and between holes CB-12 and CB-107. A supergene chalcocite enrichment zone was intersected from 8.6 to 63.3m grading 0.45% Cu, 0.15 Au g/t and 2.6 g/t Ag, including 18.0 m grading 0.70% Cu, 0.16g/t Au and 1.6g/t Ag. This was underlain by a number of discrete intervals of primary copper mineralization to a depth of 322.4m, the best of which graded 0.68% Cu, 0.43g/t Au and 5.4 g/t Ag over 31.0 m.

Hole CB-104 was collared between previously published holes CB-73 and CB-75. The hole intersected 13.6m of copper oxide mineralization averaging 1.0% Cu, 0.05g/t Au and 0.95 g/t Ag, underlain by 69.3m of enriched chalcocite mineralization grading 1.83% Cu, 0.66 g/t Au and 7.12g/t Ag including 40m averaging 2.88% Cu, 0.67g/t Au and 7.1g/t Ag. At depth, an interval of 215.2m of copper primary mineralization was intersected, averaging 0.42% Cu, 0.26 g/t Au and 2.4 g/t Ag, including 28m grading 1.48% Cu, 1.03g/t Au and 7.4g/t Ag.

Hole CB-107 was located parallel to and between holes CB-85 and CB-101. From surface to 7.6m, an interval of copper oxide mineralization graded0.18% Cu, 0.24g/t Au and 2.4g/t Ag. This was underlain by 44m of enriched chalcocite mineralization grading 0.33% Cu, 0.35g/t Au and 1.8g/t Ag, and then by 28.0m of primary mineralization averaging 0.49% Cu, 0.43 g/t Au and 1.6 g/t Ag.

A map showing the locations of the drill holes is available at Panoro’s website, www.panoro.com. Four drills continue working on step-out, exploration and infill drilling targetting continued growth of the resource and upgrade of the high grade pit area to the Indicated category.
