Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – January 31, 2023) – Hispania Resources Inc. (TSXV: ESPN) (“Hispania” or the “Company“) wishes to inform shareholders that it is preparing for the exploration program to be carried out at Las Herrerias (“Las Herrerias“), on the Puebla de la Reina property, located in Extremadura, Spain. Management will be onsite in early February to meet with its geological team to review and visit local geological areas of interest on the property identified by the work carried out in 2021/22 by the company.
While in the region, company management will be meeting with additional firms that carry out geophysical and diamond drilling activities, with the objective of determining timing and scope for the upcoming work at Las Herrerias. Further, management intends to again meet with the regional Ministry and politicians, including the Mayor of Puebla de la Reina, as they did in July, 2022, to ensure all local stakeholders needs are met.
“We are looking forward to returning to site, and working with our local team, as well as local drilling firms, to have additional resource work completed on site, and look at the additional areas of interest noted by our local geological team that had not previously been investigated by the two previous property owners. In addition, we are keen to ensure that all governmental and environmental objectives of Hispania are being met in conjunction with local stakeholders, including the Mayor of Puebla de la Reina, Ms Ana María Redondo, who we continue to consult and work with”, noted Norman Brewster, Chief Executive Officer.
The area at Puebla de la Reina is a pre-identified high grade copper and zinc area. We believe the new zones to the west may offer additional similar opportunities. With the increased price both of copper and zinc, as well as improved technology for metal extraction, the Company believes there may be value in these previously unexplored areas. Some of these new and additional areas, as well as continued areas of interest and findings to date are noted in the Exhibits below.

Image 3: This image depicts area lying to the west of Puebla de la Reina and shows the results of the geophysical program. The maroon symbols represent strong conductive anomalies which represent new areas of investigation, and will be further investigated initially with geophysics, ground trenching, and rock sampling where practical. Interesting results will be followed up with diamond drilling.
Image 4: This image represents the area around the village of Puebla de la Reina. The open area in the centre is the local of the existing historical resource on the property (500,000 tonnes at 11.5% Zn, 1.6% Cu, and 1.2% Pb and 32 gpt/Au Outukumpu 1999-2001). The symbols represent the electromagnetic responses with the maroon responses being strong anomalous conductors. Additional work is warranted which will consist of geophysics, ground trenching, and sampling where practical. Interesting results from this work will be followed by diamond drilling.
