#FCM First Class Metals plc- Esa Property Geophysical (VTEM) Reinterpretation

First Class Metals PLC (“First Class Metals” “FCM” or the “Company”) the UK metals exploration company seeking large scale metal discoveries across its extensive Canadian Schreiber-Hemlo land holding and the Sunbeam Project, is pleased to provide an update on activities in respect to the Esa claim block.



·    VTEM reinterpretation by Paterson Grant Watson Limited “PGW” now completed.

·   Reinterpretation further identifies potential east-west trending shear zone dissecting the central area of the property, the “Esa shear zone”.

·    Esa is located just 11km Northeast of the Barrick Hemlo 23M oz gold mine.

·    Ground reconnaissance has identified outcrop of sheared metamorphic rocks

·    Field campaign completing multiple soil lines across the “Esa shear zone” underway with results pending.




The Esa property covers 20km² and is situated just 11km north of the iconic Hemlo gold mine operated by Barrick Gold (>23M oz Au) which after over thirty years of continuous production remains one of Canada’s most prolific producing gold mines.  Hemlo is a sheared-fractured-folded, disseminated-replacement-stockwork deposit, located at a felsic volcanic-sedimentary rock interface, with sulphides in a structural regime. Metamorphism has overprinted the system. Pluton emplacements as well as intrusions of variable age and composition may have played a role in metal deposition or reworking, see Figure 1.

Figure 1- Esa Property regional location with FCM North Hemlo to the north and the Barrick Williams 23m oz Au mine in the south

FCM recently engaged Paterson Grant and Watson Ltd. ‘PGW’ to undertake a re interpretation of the VETEM acquired over Esa.  This report has now been finalised and it comments “Exploration at the Esa property focuses on shear-zone hosted, stratabound gold mineralization found within the metasedimentary unit. The genetic model is considered similar to the Hemlo gold deposit.” The report further comments: “Through the centre of the property, the proposed Hemlo-style shear zone trends roughly WNW-ESE and is associated with a magnetic anomaly of approximately 60 nT within the Esa/Soturi block magnetic data. The anomaly is approximately 350 m wide and is identifiable within the Hemlo survey data for approximately 5 km to the west and 4.5 km to the east of the Esa property as a regional arcuate structure…………and:

Mineralization within the property appears closely related to a series of N-S trending magnetic anomalies which may be related to the Marathon, Kapuskasing or Biscotasing dyke swarm. Numerous high geochemical Au assay values occur along these anomalies and at the intersection of these anomalies and WNW-ESE interpreted faults”, see Figure 2 and 2a”

Figure 2 and 2a-Reinterpretated PGW VTEM showing interpretated shear zone bisecting the Esa Property and 3D block model interpretation highlighting the deep seated N-S anomaly

PGW also indicated that whilst the magnetic component of the survey was instrumental in their (re)interpretation the VTEM added little. The strong geophysical response dissecting the property has been in part ‘ground-truthed’ and supports the interpreted presence of a shear. The inferred shear is also identified on adjacent properties: to the west, trending on to Esa, whilst its continuation east coincides with reported anomalous gold values.  This inferred Esa shear crossing the property in an arcuate roughly east west orientation has formed the focus of field work to date. Rock samples of boulders were identified as sheared sulphitic mafic rocks. It is worth noting that owing to ground cover, both forestation and Quaternary gravels, there is a paucity of exposure generally across the property. However, significantly, the shear has now been identified in outcrop in the eastern sector of the property.

The following comment from Dr Tony Starling (Telluris Consulting Limited)  reaffirms and supports the Esa shear interpretation being adopted by the Company. Dr Tony Starling is a world-renowned expert in structural geophysics. Previously Telluris had been contracted by FCM to carry out a structural geological review of the both the Esa & North Hemlo project areas and their wider environs.

“The PGW report interprets the arcuate near E-W linear anomaly as a shear zone (the Esa shear zone) as suggested by its slightly wider, more diffuse response in the geophysics, which makes sense.”

Telluris Consulting Ltd

Dr Tony Starling is founder and Managing Director of Telluris Consulting Ltd. Telluris Consulting is a geological consultancy established in 1993 that specialises in the application of structural and alteration studies with bespoke image processing with extensive experience in Archean settings.

More recently FCM is exploring the use of proprietary algorithms based on remote sensing (Aster imagery) to further explore the potential of the Esa (and North Hemlo) blocks.

FCM has a field team finalising a soil sampling programme along the inferred surface expressions of the shear, see Figure 3; whilst in parallel the team continued the systematic prospecting of the claim block. 8 soil lines orientated north – south and one oblique line across the property west to east over roughly 4km of strike are near completion.

Figure 3-Map of  the soil sample lines.

The 5 western lines crossed the magnetic feature in the western portion of the property. The 4 eastern lines were in the vicinity of sheared pyritic boulders and the intersection with a major N-S feature; hence the last soil line being orientated oblique to both structures.

Across the Esa property in this season’s campaign over 450 soil samples and 10 rock samples will have been collected. Results will be reported when final assays for all elements are received.

Marc J. Sale CEO First Class Metals said: “I am delighted that for negligible cost to FCM to have gained and contracted a reinterpreted of the full set of  geophysical including VTEM data. The PGW reinterpretation is significant due to its findings giving credence to the postulated theory an inferred ‘Hemlo style’ arcuate east west shear across the property. This reinforcement has led us to undertake very late into the season a soil sampling campaign that extended previous work and now covers the entire length of the shear. I am grateful to the field team for their efforts in indulging me during progressively worsening conditions.  I look forward to receiving the assay results of the soils and interpreting the data it provides into our model”.

Omega Diagnostics (ODX) has received the £4m deferred consideration for the sale of the CD4 business. Net cash is expected to be £6.2m by the end of March 2022. This can be used to expand the health and food intolerance operations. The US is a market where more investment is planned. Omega Diagnostics remains loss making but could move into profit in 2023-24.

Electrolyser developer Clean Power Hydrogen (CPH2) is having problems with the design and operation of its cryostat unit in the MFE 220 test unit. Scaling up the unit has been a challenge. This delayed the expected October deliveries of two initial MFE 220 units. One customer has cancelled the order and is going with a rival electrolyser. A redesign of the unit should cure the issues. On the current forecasts, the cash could reduce to £3m by the end of 2024 and then rise the following year, but further delays could mean the cash reduces more quickly than expected.

Curtis Banks Group (CBP) is in advanced discussions concerning a bid from Nucleus Financial Platforms, which is conducting due diligence. Susan McInnes has been appointed as an independent non-executive director of Curtis Banks.

DeepMatter Group (DMTR) is the latest company with plans to cancel the AIM quotation because management believes that it will be easier to raise cash as a private company. The digital chemistry data analysis business says major shareholders support the plan. DeepMatter wants to raise £1m before leaving AIM and then a larger amount after the departure.

Trafalgar Property Group (TRAF) has moved into hydroponics. The residential property developer has acquired assets and leasehold premises from May Barn Horticultural Consultancy, which is controlled by Trafalgar Property director Dr Paul Challinor, for £30,000.

#POW Power Metal Resources PLC – New Lithium Project – Ontario, Canada

Power Metal Resources PLC (LON:POW),  the London listed exploration company seeking large-scale metal discoveries across its global project portfolio announces the acquisition by staking of the 100% owned, North Wind Lithium Project (“North Wind” or the “Project”) located in Ontario, Canada.

The staking was completed through Power Metal’s wholly-owned Canadian subsidiary, Power Metal Resources Canada Inc (“Power Canada”).


· Following a detailed review of several publicly available provincial government geological databases and reports, Power Metal have staked a total of 5,788.5-hectares over a 16km long trend of highly anomalous lithium-in-lake sediment results.

· The North Wind Lithium Project is considered by the Company to be prospective for lithium (Li), caesium (Cs), and tantalum (Ta) (“LCT”) bearing pegmatite occurrences.

· The Project is ideally located less than 25km northwest of the town of Beardmore, Ontario, and is criss-crossed by multiple access roads which connect up to the Trans-Canada Highway located less than 40km away.

· This Project acquisition provides Power Metal Resources with a significant land holding which is prospective for LCT pegmatite occurrences within the stable and supportive mining jurisdiction of Ontario, Canada.

Paul Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of Power Metal Resources commented:

“The addition of the North Wind Lithium Project is a significant boost for Power Metal Resources as it provides the Company with a new and potentially high-impact lithium focused opportunity.

We consider that lithium as a commodity has a particularly bright future with high demand and constrained supply.  In fact, the significant move higher in the lithium price has sparked considerable interest in available exploration properties around the world, and particularly those in safe jurisdictions.

It was a great achievement that through painstaking work, the Power Metal technical team have been able to identify this new opportunity and secure it through staking, one of the most cost-effective ways to secure new interests.

Further updates will follow as we advance our knowledge and set out exploration plans for the North Wind Lithium Project.”


The Project is located within the Onaman-Tashota greenstone belt, where historical exploration has traditionally focused on precious and base-metals – however the geology, in a provincial Open File Report (the “Report”), determined that the belt was prospective for LCT pegmatite occurrences – the main source of ‘hard rock’ lithium worldwide. 1

Other lithium explorers and operators within the region include Imagine Lithium Inc. (TSX.V: ILI) with their Jackpot Lithium Project (with a reported historical non-compliant resource of 2,000,000 tonnes at 1.09% Li2O), located 50km to the south of North Wind and Green Technology Metals (ASX: GT1) with their flagship Seymour Project (which hosts a JORC compliant total Mineral Resource of 9.9Mt at 1.04% Li2O) located approximately 65km to the northwest.

The Project is centred on a granitic intrusion, cut by numerous mapped dykes. Highly anomalous lake sediment results (detailed further below) suggest that a zoned LCT pegmatite system may be present but has never been investigated. North Wind was identified through detailed research and analysis by the Power Metal Resources technical team, utilising over 600,000 individual lake sediment sample points collected by the Ontario Geological Survey (OGS), who also prepared selected recommendations for exploration which were presented in the Report 1. Based on this data as well as information contained within the Report; the area encompassing the North Wind Project was selected for the strategic acquisition by staking.

The highly prospective and anomalous lake sediment data contained within the Project includes:

· Seven instances of >99th percentile (with respect to regional data) Li-in-lake sediment results (ranging from 18.63 to 34.95 ppm Li) with 34.95 ppm representing the 99.95th percentile result.

· Of those seven samples, six are >95th percentile for caesium (1.26 to 2.21 ppm Cs), with three >99th percentile (1.94 to 2.21 ppm Cs).

· The seven samples are also noted to be highly elevated in tantalum with results ranging between 0.6 and 0.9 ppm Ta.

The presence of anomalous, or highly elevated concentrations of lithium, caesium and tantalum from samples collected within the same water body suggest a nearby mineralised source, and therefore the Project represents a highly prospective target for LCT pegmatite occurrences.  Further desktop analysis is currently underway, with a comprehensive Phase I Field Sampling Programme planned in Q1-Q2, 2023.  


A total of 278 Mining Claim cells were registered by electronic staking through the Ontario Mining Lands Administration System, covering a total area of 5,788.5-hectares for a total cost to the Company of CAD $13,900 (circa £8,500). The mining cells are 100% owned by Power Canada, a wholly owned subsidiary of Power Metal Resources plc. Each Mining Claim cell covers 20.82-hectares and has an annual exploration spend commitment of CAD$400 from year two onwards.  The Project therefore has a total exploration spend commitment of circa £68,000 by the end of year 2 and then annually onwards, in order to keep all 278 Mining Claim cells in good standing.

#KAV Kavango Resources plc – KCB – CSAMT breakthrough

Botswana focussed metals exploration company Kavango Resources plc (LSE:KAV) is pleased to announce an important breakthrough in its use of Controlled-Source Audio Magnetotelluric (“CSAMT”) surveys as an exploration tool in the Kalahari Copper Belt (“KCB”).

Over the last 12 months Kavango has refined and calibrated its use of CSAMT, across its project portfolio. The Company has now completed a programme of CSAMT surveys on KCB prospecting licence PL082/2018 (announced >>> 12 October 2022).

Line 4A is the longest line of CSAMT on PL082/2018 and extended beyond the licence boundary to the southeast, onto ground that hosts the Kronos occurrence (the “Line 4A Survey”) with the permission of holder Sandfire Resources (ASX:SFR).  As Kronos is known to lie at the D’Kar/Ngwako contact zone, Kavango’s objective was to use this occurrence as a calibration point of known geology. The goal is to confirm the D’Kar/Ngwako Pan contact signature in the CSAMT data and then extrapolate this onto PL082/2018. This formational contact is recognised as the primary regional control of copper/silver mineralisation across the KCB.

Initial results of inversions of the CSAMT data from the Line 4A Survey appear to provide high quality vertical resistivity sections that identify sedimentary strata with good resolution, down to 4000m depth. This far exceeds expectations. Previously, at the Company’s Kalahari Suture Zone and Ditau projects, Kavango had achieved detailed resolution of sedimentary strata down to roughly 1000m depth. As such, the Company believes it has achieved a significant breakthrough in its proprietary application of CSAMT technology in the KCB.

If drilling demonstrates that Kavango can accurately map the D’Kar/Ngwako Pan contact from surface, using CSAMT, the Company believes this should substantially enhance its exploration programme in the KCB.

Further updates will be made, as Kavango interprets and analyses inversions of data taken from the lines 3, 4A, 6A and 8 surveys. The Company intends to use these results to calibrate its future use of CSAMT and enhance the ongoing drill programme on licence PL082/2018, which is targeting copper/silver mineralisation.

Jeremy S. Brett, Senior Geophysicist at Kavango Resources, commented:

CSAMT applied to the Kalahari Copper Belt is showing impressive promise as a geophysical tool to detect the primary bedding and secondary brittle controls that are well known to control mineralization in the belt. 

This method provides the detection of structure in vertical section and meshes well with the regional folding and faulting that can be interpreted very well from aeromagnetic surveys. 

The combination appears to be very powerful for exploration targeting, and Kavango hopes to prove this via diamond drilling.
