Power Metal Resources #POW – Exercise of Ontario Options – Magical and Enable Properties

Power Metal Resources PLC (LON:POW) the AIM listed metals exploration and development company is pleased to announce that following due diligence work the Company has exercised its option to acquire both the Magical Property (“Magical”) and Enable Property (“Enable” together the “Properties”) located on the prospective Schreiber-Hemlo Greenstone Belt in north-western Ontario, Canada.

These are the final two of four gold exploration properties upon which the Company signed an exclusive option to acquire a 100% interest (as announced 26 January 2021) and follows the McKellar option exercise and the Coco East option exercise which were announced on 18th and  24th February 2021 respectively.

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

“The exercise of our options over the Magical and Enable properties concludes Power Metals’ current acquisition strategy over the Schreiber-Hemlo Greenstone Belt in Ontario. Power’s portfolio of exploration properties provides us the opportunity to build value, within a 120km strike length, of a prolific exploration belt.

We will now commence a phase of desk-based remote sensing targeting and exploration planning with a view to being in a position to initiate ground reconnaissance and target follow-up work after the snow thaw.  We look forward to providing further updates as plans progress.”

MAGICAL PROPERTY OVERVIEW

–  Magical is located 9km northwest of Barrick Gold Corporation’s Hemlo Mine which has produced more than 21Moz gold and has been operating continuously for more than 30 years1.

–  The property is located upon the North Limb of the Schreiber-Hemlo Greenstone Belt, the property is located at the prospective contact between the intrusive Gowan Lake Pluton and metavolcanic/metasedimentary rock packages, with a similar geological setting to the Hemlo deposit. Magical offers potential for orogenic style gold mineralisation.

–  The regional geophysics data shows a north trending regional scale magnetic structure intersects the intrusion within the centre of the property, defining a preliminary target for investigation.

–  Magical is largely unexplored apart from the easternmost Claim cell where, in 1995, Hemlo Gold Mines Inc drilled an induced polarisation (“IP”) geophysics anomaly. Diamond drill hole V95-2 reportedly intersected a 7m zone of silicification containing sericite and sulphides and 12.6m of feldspar porphyry with disseminated pyrite. 

–  Magical directly abuts and covers the westward strike extension of the Canadian listed junior Hemlo Explorers Inc (TSX-V: HMLO) North Limb Property2 .

MAGICAL CLAIM STATUS

–  The Magical property consists of a total of 14 Single Cell Mining Claims (“Claims”) covering an area of circa 3.0km2.

–  Claims are valid through to 27 July 2022 upon which they can be renewed on an annual basis. For renewal the Magical Claims will require an aggregate work spend of CAD$5,600 (circa £3,145) prior to the individual Claim renewal dates. 

ENABLE PROPERTY OVERVIEW

–  The Enable property is located on the western part of the Schreiber-Hemlo Greenstone Belt, at the contact of metavolcanic and volcano-sedimentary rock packages with the Terrace Bay Batholith. 

–  On a regional scale the Terrace Bay Batholith contact is spatially associated with at least 28 documented gold showings including the Northshore Property which has historical resources of 1.2Moz Au3. Northshore has recently been subject to open pit mining studies and is currently held by Canadian Securities Exchange listed Ready Set Gold Corp. (CSE:RDY).

–  Overburden cover has been attributed to the reason the Enable portion of the batholith contact remains unexplored. This presents an opportunity to discover new gold mineralisation utilising modern exploration technologies.

–  Access to the property is good, being 4km north of the town and railway stop of Terrace Bay and with the Trans-Canada Highway running within 200m of the eastern boundary. The centre of the property is crossed by a public highway with logging roads and a lake providing access to the western part of the property.

ENABLE CLAIM STATUS

–  The Enable property consists of a total of 41 Claims covering an area of circa 8.7km2.

–  Claims are valid through to 25 July 2022 upon which they can be renewed on an annual basis. For renewal the Enable Claims will require an aggregate work spend of CAD$16,400 (circa £9,210) prior to the individual Claim renewal dates.

ACQUISITION TERMS

The vendors of the Option (the “Vendors”) are a consortium led by established local prospector Brian Fowler who was the Vendor of the Hemlo North Gold Project acquired by Power Metal as announced on 21 January 2021.

In exercising the Option to acquire a 100% interest in the Magical and Enable properties POW will make the following cash and equity consideration:

The POW shares payable as consideration are new ordinary shares of 0.1p each in the Company at an issue price of 3.0 pence per share (“Acquisition Shares”).   The cash costs of the acquisition are funded from Power Metal’s existing Canadian Dollar cash account.

The Vendors retain a 2% net smelter royalty (“NSR”) on each property, Power Metal may purchase 1% of each NSR, at any time, by making a cash payment to the Vendors of CAD$500,000.

The Vendors will continue to work with Power Metal in the local management of any new properties acquired through this transaction; the development and implementation of exploration plans and the identification of further new opportunities. 

EXPLORATION PLAN

–  Ongoing exploration spend will be at the discretion of Power Metal as the 100% owner of the properties. 

–  Preliminary exploration work is expected to include both remote sensing data interpretation and ground-based fieldwork with systematic soil sampling and geophysics expected to yield defined targets for future drill testing.

–  The Province of Ontario has an established mineral exploration industry with a large number of local exploration contractors that could be engaged to fulfill the planned work on a cost-effective basis.

Admission and Total Voting Rights

Application will be made for the 960,000 Acquisition Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM, which is expected to occur on or around 4 March 2021 (“Admission”). The Acquisition Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the ordinary shares of the Company currently traded on AIM.

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (ASX: MIO) Enters Into Exclusive Agreement Over 10 Historic Prospecting and Mining Lease Tenements in the Central Goldfields of Western Australia

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (ASX: MIO) (the “Company” or “Macarthur”) has entered into an exclusive agreement with Zanil Pty Ltd (“Zanil”) to undertake due diligence over 10 tenements in and around the Leonora Goldfields region in Western Australia (“Agreement”). The Agreement is intended to strengthen the value proposition for a potential future repositioning of Macarthur’s non-iron ore assets.

Zanil is an Australian Proprietary company. Zanil either directly holds rights over, or is duly authorised on behalf of the relevant tenement holders, to enter into the Agreement with Macarthur in respect of the tenement areas:

Location of the properties under due diligence

The Leonora tenements are located in the Central Goldfields region of Western Australia, approximately 237 kilometres north of the city of Kalgoorlie within the proximity of active gold mines such as Agnew gold mine, Gwalia gold mine and Sunrise Dam gold mine.

The tenement portfolio consists of two mining leases and eight prospecting licences, with nine of the areas located on historic gold workings. The other tenement, Barlow’s Gully, has no established mine workings, but has been subject to surface gold extraction for over 100 years.

Key tenements are:

Garden Well was mined prior to 1987 and subsequently subject to periodic exploration campaigns.

Camel Lease historically produced 30.72kg (1083.61oz) of gold reported in WA Government Minedex database as:

— Sons of Australia – 26.3kg (927.70oz) Au from 691 tonnes @ 38.1g/t Au

— Camel Leases – 4.39kg (154.85oz) Au from 142 tonnes @ 30.9g/t Au

— Kruger and Viceroy – 3.95kg (139.33oz) Au @ 37 g/t Au

This reef has been mined to ~150 feet and historic reports suggest water ingress to be the main factor in mining being discontinued.

Great Northern tenement records production of 460 tonnes of ore mined for 10.1kg (356.26oz) Au @ 21.9 g/t Au.

Barlow’s Gully tenement has no historical mine workings but covers the Ursus fault structure. Outside the lease the Ursus fault structure hosts the Torian Sterling Well discovery (held by others), Cerebus-Eclipse 112,000oz Au resource (held by others), and the Centauri 83,100oz Au resource (held by others).

Coppermine is a tenement that has a historical mine working with notable surface copper expression.

The past production reported from these areas are not treated as current or historical Mineral Resources and further exploration is required to understand the potential for gold or copper mineralisation.

The location of the 10 tenements is shown on the below map that highlights the prospectivity of the Leonora Goldfields and indicates the potential of this tenement portfolio.

https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/f7ed9f5d-b5a1-43db-a563-3f3ad679becf

Alan Joe Phillips, Managing Director of Macarthur Minerals, commented: “The main focus for the Company is ‘first and foremost’ the ongoing development of the Lake Giles Iron Ore assets. The entering into of the due diligence agreement with Zanil is designed to all for an exclusive low-cost review of the Central Goldfields assets to augment the Company’s Pilbara gold, copper and lithium tenement portfolio.

If these tenements demonstrate value, Macarthur will consider spinning out this portfolio as part of a wider Pilbara/Central Goldfields transaction. The objective is to create value for shareholders by exploiting these tenements without detracting or distracting Macarthur from delivering on its substantial Lake Giles Iron Project.”

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Update on Yangibana Rare Earth Project and Joint Venture Partner Funding to Accelerate Construction.

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Hastings Technology Metals (ASX:HAS) (“Hastings”), Cadence’s joint venture partner at the Yangibana Rare Earth Project in the Gascoyne region of Western Australia (“Yangibana” “Yangibana Project”), has received commitments to raise $100.7 million through an equity placement. The placement’s net proceeds will be used to advance development of the Yangibana Project in the Gascoyne region of Western Australia.

Relevance to Cadence Minerals Holdings in the Yangibana Project:

Cadence owns 30% of 3 Mining Leases, 6 Exploration Licences which form part of the Yangibana Project, Hastings holds owns 70% of these leases and licenses.

The definitive feasibility study published in 2017, modelled two production scenarios the second of which had included within it 808,000 tonnes of plant feed from one of our joint venture areas (Yangibana) in year 6. This production target and additional production target from the definitive feasibility study indicates that 11% of the plant feed will come from our joint venture area.

The funding announced by Hastings represents the large majority of the equity component required to commence the development of the Yangibana Project, which includes the mining and of our joint venture areas.

The economic model contemplated by Hastings assumes Cadence through its subsidiary will participate in the and mining of the deposits held 70% by Hastings and 30% by Cadence. Assuming there is a development of the mine by the joint venture a new Mining Joint Venture Agreement will need to be agreed and put in place to replace the existing joint venture documentation and regulate the arrangements between the participants for the mine development. No costs or revenue ascribed to 30% interest in the deposits held by Cadence were reported in the financial modelling published by Hastings.

Further details of our ownership the mineral resources and reserves on our jointly held leases can be found at:

https://www.cadenceminerals.com/projects/yangibana-rare-earth-project-2/

Highlights:

  • Hastings has received commitments to raise $100.7 million (before costs) through a two-tranche placement priced at $0.19 per share.
  • Placement funds will be used to advance development of the world-class Yangibana Rare Earths Project.
  • Strong institutional demand reinforces confidence that Yangibana will become Australia’s next rare earths producer.
  • Upon settlement of both tranches of the Placement, the Company will have a cash balance of approximately $120 million (before costs).

As previously announced to the ASX, the equity component of the Yangibana Project’s capital cost is $124 million.

The full HAS release can be found at: https://investi.com.au/api/announcements/has/8a07d081-700.pdf

Cadence Minerals Yangibana Holding:

Cadence owns 30% of 3 Mining Leases, 6 Exploration Licences which form part of the Yangibana Rare Earth Deposit. Hastings Technology Metals owns the remaining 70% (“Hastings”). Further details of our ownership of the mineral resources and reserves on our jointly held leases can be found at:

https://www.cadenceminerals.com/projects/yangibana-rare-earth-project-2/

The current mine plan anticipates production to start from our joint venture area (Yangibana) in year 6. The production target and additional production target from the definitive feasibility study (November 2017) indicates that 11% of the plant feed will come from the joint venture area license of Yangibana.

Cadence CEO Kiran Morzaria commented: “We are delighted to see the strong financial support shown by institutional, sophisticated and professional investors in the Hastings placing. This development will accelerate project construction and provides a positive read-over into the value and future potential of two of the Cadence joint venture area of Yangibana and Yangibana North”

Power Metal Resources #POW – Exercise of Ontario Option – Coco East Property

Power Metal Resources PLC (LON:POW) the AIM listed metals exploration and development company is pleased to announce that following due diligence work the Company has exercised its option to acquire the Coco East Property (“Coco East” or the “Property”) located on the prospective Schreiber-Hemlo Greenstone Belt in north-western Ontario, Canada.

Coco East is the second of four gold exploration properties upon which the Company has an exclusive option to acquire a 100% interest, (the “Option”) (as announced 26 January 2021) and follows the McKellar option exercise which was announced 18 February 2021.

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

“Exercising the Option over the Coco East Property further strengthens Power Metals’ landholding in Ontario, following directly on from the acquisition of the McKellar Property which was announced last week. 

Coco East is sited upon the eastern end of the Big Duck Lake Porphyry intrusive which is associated with over twenty known gold and/or base metal occurrences including significant gold intersections which were drilled in a neighbouring property during 2017. The property is also directly east of Superior Lake Resources’ Pick Lake / Winston Lake Zinc Project which is currently advancing towards a high grade zinc mine restart.

We are continuing our due diligence review of the remaining two option properties and will provide a further update in due course.” 

COCO EAST PROPERTY OVERVIEW

  • Located upon the Schreiber-Hemlo Greenstone Belt, Coco East sits at the eastern end of a 4.5km long by 1km wide quartz feldspar porphyry intrusion (the ‘Big Duck Lake Porphyry’) that can be associated with up to twenty-two known gold and/or base metal occurrences.
  • Geology of the property consists of  intrusive porphyry, ultramafic, metavolcanic and metasedimentary rock packages prospective for both gold and volcanogenic massive sulphide (“VMS”) style copper-lead-zinc-silver mineralisation.
  • Regional magnetics survey data shows distinct areas of interest within the property including magnetic highs associated with the eastern end of the Big Duck Porphyry and magnetic ridges which may be indicative of structural faulting and deformation associated with the intrusive event.
  • Located approximately 3.5km east of the Coco-Estelle Deposit where diamond drilling during 2017 intersected significant intervals of gold mineralisation including 11m @ 1.96g/t Au from 42m and  5m @ 5.9g/t Au from 63m.1  This is part of the Big Duck Project held by Canada listed CBLT Inc (TSX-V:CBLT) which abuts the Coco western boundary.
