Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – January 4, 2023) – Pancontinental Resources Corporation (TSXV: PUC) (OTCQB: PUCCF) (“Pancon” or the “Company“) announces that it has mailed its management information circular (the “Circular“) and related materials for the special meeting (the “Meeting“) of the Company’s shareholders (the “Shareholders“) that will be held on Thursday, February 2, 2023 at 10:00 am EDT at 217 Queen Street West, Suite 401, Toronto, ON, Canada. A copy of the Circular can be found on the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
During the Meeting, the Company will ask for shareholders to vote for: (i) a name change to Carolina Rush Corporation (the “Name Change“); and (ii) a proposal to consolidate its common shares on the basis of every ten (10) issued common shares for one (1) new common share (the “Consolidation“). No fractional shares will be issued and any fractional shares will be rounded down to the nearest lower whole share. The Name Change and Consolidation are subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, applicable securities regulatory authorities, and the approval of the shareholders of the Company.
Pancon President and CEO Layton Croft stated: “As announced yesterday, our Company has identified some very strong drill targets and extensions of known mineralization at our Brewer Gold and Copper Project, which we are excited to resume drilling (see the January 3, 2023 news release). We intend to apply our strategic exploration model and experience at Brewer to acquire other high potential gold and copper projects in the Carolinas region. The name change and share consolidation will be a cornerstone to attract strategic investors to help us fund aggressive exploration of the large gold-copper system at Brewer. With the restructuring of the Company we intend to strengthen our Management Team with the addition of more technical expertise and executive experience.”
If 67% of voting shareholders at the Meeting approve the Name Change and Consolidation, the Company plans to raise capital to resume drilling at its flagship Brewer Gold and Copper Project. Brewer will anchor the Company’s vision to be the leading explorer in the southeastern US.

Pancontinental Resources Corporation (TSXV: PUC) (OTCQB: PUCCF), or Pancon, is exploring the, underexplored Carolina Terrane in the southeastern USA. In January 2020, Pancon won the exclusive right to explore and purchase the former Brewer Gold Mine property, with an option period through 2030. Brewer is a breccia-hosted, high-sulphidation epithermal gold-copper system which is likely related to a copper-gold porphyry system at depth. Total historic production at the Brewer property is estimated to be a minimum of 200,000 ounces of gold. Most of the gold production occurred between 1987-1995 when 178,000 ounces of gold were recovered mostly from oxide ore extracted from open pits that extended to maximum of depth of 65 meters (Zwaschka and Scheetz, 1995, Detailed Geology of the Brewer Gold Mine, Jefferson, South Carolina). Pancon’s 100%-owned, 1,730-acre Jefferson Gold Project mostly surrounds the 1,000-acre Brewer property. The Brewer-Jefferson area of interest, in Chesterfield County, South Carolina, is 12 kilometers along trend from the producing Haile Gold Mine, which has Proven and Probable reserves of 2.55 million ounces of gold with a production guidance of 165,000 – 175,000 ounces of gold in 2022 (https://oceanagold.com/operation/haile/).
