Power Metal Resources #POW – Audited Results for the Year Ended 30 September 2020

Power Metal Resources plc (LON:POW), the AIM listed mineral resources exploration and development company, is pleased to announce its consolidated audited results for the year ended 30 September 2020 for the Company and its subsidiaries, Cobalt Blue Holdings (“CBH”), Regent Resources Interests Corp. (“RRIC”), and Power Metal Resources SA, (“PMR”), (together the “Group”).

Highlights from the year under review:

Operational

  • A strategic Australian gold joint venture was formed with Red Rock Resources plc (LON:RRR), with Power Metal Resources holding 49.9%.  By year end the joint venture holding company, Red Rock Resources Australasia (Pty) Limited (“RRAL”) had lodged 12 licence applications covering some 2,188 km2 in the Victoria goldfields region. Various technical work was completed in the year including project reports for 11 of the licence applications and a National Instrument 43-101 report for 8 of the licence applications as a group. A new office was secured in Ballarat town and an exploration manager appointed to the joint venture company;
  • Following completion of ground geophysics in 2019 and the delineation of key drill targets, Power Metal Resources elected on 31 December 2019 to earn in to a 40% project holding at the Molopo Farms Complex Project, Botswana by expending US$500,000 on exploration, notably key target drilling in 2020.  A maiden drill programme commenced in October 2020;
  • A new strategic joint venture was formed between Power Metal Resources and Kavango Resources Plc (LON:KAV) in respect of the Kalahari Copper Belt and Ditau Camp Projects in Botswana, with each party having a 50% interest;
  • Review work was undertaken in respect of the exploration and commercialisation options in respect of the Cobalt Blue nickel/cobalt project in Cameroon. No formal conclusions as to the way forward were reached in the financial year, with deliberations continuing post year end and leading to a decision to impair the value of the of the Cameroon project in full (£970,000);
  • A new earn in agreement was formed over the Silver Peak Project, including a former working silver mine, in British Columbia, Canada.  Due diligence programme sampling demonstrated bonanza grade silver from channel sampling;
  • A pitting, sampling and mapping work programme was undertaken successfully at the Kisinka Project in The Democratic Republic of the Congo. X-ray fluorescence testing of the samples confirmed the presence of copper, with samples dispatched to South Africa for analysis and results received post year end.  The results announced in November 2020 demonstrated high grade copper and cobalt values; 
  • Power Metal Resources increased its interest in the Haneti Nickel Project by 10% to 35% in the financial year and worked with joint venture partner AIM Listed Katoro Gold plc (LON:KAT) to plan for commencement of maiden drilling for nickel sulphide and Platinum Group Metals (“PGMs”) at the Project;
  • An agreement was signed in respect of the Alamo Gold Project in Arizona USA which saw Power Metal Resources acquire an option to earn in to a maximum 75% interest in the project.  An initial reconnaissance survey conducted following the acquisition identified additional prospective areas which were pegged and added to existing claims, increasing the project footprint;
  • A further strengthening of the Board saw Edmund Shaw, an experienced City finance professional, join the Board as Non-executive Director in February 2020;
  • At the year-end 30 September 2020 the Company held a private and listed shares/warrants portfolio worth circa £1,481,000, including a £415,000 fair value uplift in the valuation of the portfolio of listed investments in other junior natural resource companies held by the Company over the course of the year;
  • · At the year end the Company held cash in GBP, USD, AUD and CAD of £913,000 in GBP equivalent.

Financial

  • Loss for the year to 30 September 2020 of £1.4 million (2019: £1.6 million);
  • Pre non-controlling interest total equity of £3.6 million at the year-end (2019: £1.8 million); and
  • Raised £1.7 million (before issue costs) in new equity financing during the financial year, from a combination of new and existing shareholders, including the Directors, and an additional £266,000 of cash received by the Company during the year from exercises of Power Metal share warrants.

Post-year end

Expansion of exploration and activity across the Company’s project portfolio including:

  • Drilling programme commencement at the Molopo Farms Complex Project in Botswana (announced 15 October 2020), the Silver Peak Project in Canada (announced 10 November 2020) and the Haneti Nickel Project in Tanzania (announced 30 December 2020);
  • Next stage exploration programmes commenced at the Kalahari Copper Belt and Ditau Projects in Botswana, the Alamo Gold Project in Arizona, USA and the Kisinka Project in The Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”);
  • Continuation of corporate activities since the year end with participation in a rights issue for Kalahari Key Mineral Exploration (Pty) Limited and expansion of the Australian Gold Joint Venture with an application to increase the JV footprint by a further 148 km2 surrounding the Ballarat mine area; and
  • Option agreement signed in January 2021 providing 60 business-days for due diligence which if successful would lead to the acquisition of First Development Resources Pty Limited, a private Australian company with copper-gold exploration interests in Paterson Province, Australia.
  • Agreement signed by Power Metal Resources in January 2021 to acquire a package of gold exploration properties in Ontario Canada, followed by an option agreement providing 30 days for due diligence which if successful would lead to the acquisition of four additional exploration projects also in Ontario, Canada. In February 2021, the Company announced it had exercised the Option to acquire the McKellar Property by transferring total consideration of CAD$100,000 in cash and shares;
  • In February 2021 RRAL received confirmation that three licence applications had been granted enabling the commencement of ground exploration in the Victoria Goldfields, Australia;
  • In February 2021, the Company announced, subject to shareholder approval, a capital reduction to take place in order for distributions to be made to shareholders; and
  • Warrant exercises since the year end have raised a further £2,638,470 for the Company. 

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

“The audited results for the year ended 30 September 2020 demonstrate the pace of business development at Power Metal.   

In the previous financial year the Company emerged from the refinancing in February 2019 with a new sense of energy and a promise to deliver an exciting investment proposition in resource exploration and development.  As at today’s date Power Metal is a global exploration company with precious and base metal projects across three continents.

Much of the development achieved in the Company was undertaken in the year ended 30 September 2020 and since then we have seen the launch of proactive exploration and corporate activities across multiple projects including district scale opportunities.

Power Metal is well funded with a strong working capital position and an objective to continue to build our “balance sheet” working capital to move the Company toward financial self sustainability.

We believe that 2021 and the coming years presents a great opportunity for junior resource opportunities and where possible we intend to take full advantage.”

Notes to Editors:

Power Metal Resources plc (LON:POW) is an AIM listed metals exploration and development company seeking a large scale metal discovery.

The Company has a global portfolio of project interests including precious metal exploration in North America and Australia together with base and strategic metal exploration in Africa. Project interests range from early stage greenfield exploration to later stage prospects currently subject to drill programmes.

The Board and its team of advisors have expertise in project generation, exploration and development and have identified an opportunity to utilise the Company’s position to become a leader in the London market for investors wishing to gain exposure to proactive global metals exploration.

Power Metal Resources #POW – Botswana Molopo Farms Complex – Drilling Update

Power Metal Resources plc (LON:POW) the AIM listed metals exploration and development company is pleased to provide a further update from the Kalahari Key Mineral Exploration Pty Ltd (“Kalahari Key”) Molopo Farms Complex Project (the “Project” or “MFC Project”), which is targeting prospective massive nickel sulphide and platinum-group metal (“PGM”) mineralisation in Botswana.

Paul Johnson Chief Executive Officer of Power Metal Resources commented:

“Identification of additional visible sulphides deeper in hole KKME 1-6 gives further encouraging signals to the prospect of discovering significant mineralisation within the Molopo Farms Complex.

So far we are encouraged by the indications from core logging, and await assay results and mineralogical studies to confirm the sulphide minerals present. To be absolutely clear we make no assumption as to which sulphide minerals are present and await the assay results, and those results will likely guide the next exploration steps.

The identification of up to 14 new targets for ground exploration in the feeder zone from the Aster Mapping also adds to the evidence of district scale prospectivity.

Substantial new data continues to be generated on a relatively untested environment, advancing a journey of discovery in a geological setting where there is the clear potential for large scale metal deposits.”

Highlights:

  • The second diamond drill hole at the MFC Project, KKME 1-6, has been continued from 547m to a  final depth of 598 metres in ultramafic rocks.  The extra hole depth will provide further core from the geophysical target depth and will assist in further geophysical interpretation.
  • Core from KKME 1-6 and from the first drill hole at KKME 1-14 has been transported to Lobatse where it is being cut by the Botswana Geoscience Institute. Selected half core samples will be sent to a South African assay laboratory for base and precious metal analysis, this week. 
  • Logging KKME 1-6 cut core has identified disseminated sulphide mineralisation below 500m drill hole depth, notably in the section marked as a target by the geophysics. This is further to disseminated sulphide mineralisation identified around 308-313m drill hole depth from the initial KKME 1-6 core inspection (announced 11 January 2021). 
  • An agreement has been signed with the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg and selected quarter core samples will be sent to the University’s Geology Department this week for mineralogical and thin section analysis. 
  • A report received from Aster Funds Ltd (“Aster”) based in Toronto entitled ‘Satellite-Based Long Wave Infrared (LWIR), Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Mapping, Molopo Farms Exploration Licences has identified about 14 new targets in the feeder zone, with priority targets recommended to be ranked for follow-up ground exploration.
  • Down-hole geophysics data is expected to be acquired in the next phase of the current programme, this should help identify any massive sulphide mineralisation proximal to the  disseminated sulphides encountered at around 308-313m drill hole depth and below 500m drill hole depth, in angled hole KKME 1-6.

OWNERSHIP STRUCTURE – MOLOPO FARMS COMPLEX PROJECT

Power Metal currently has an 18.26% shareholding in Kalahari Key and has elected to earn in (“Earn-In”) to a 40% direct interest in the MFC Project by funding US$500,000 of exploration expenditure by 30 April 2021, notably the diamond drilling of selected targets (the “Drill Programme”).  To date Power Metal have paid US$392,641 leaving a balance remaining of US$107,359 (approximately £76,801) which is fully covered by Power Metal cash resources.

THE DRILL PROGRAMME

The Drill Programme was for an initial planned 2,505m across four diamond core drill holes with planned target hole depths varying from 525m to 710m.  Ultimate meterage to be drilled will be determined in due course.

The Drill Programme is designed to intersect four high priority targets prospective for massive nickel sulphide mineralisation, delineated by both Time Domain Electromagnetic (“EM”) and Natural Field Audio Magneto Telluric (“NF-AMT”) geophysics surveys.

DRILL HOLE KKME 1-14

The first drill hole KKME 1-14 at the MFC Project attained a target depth of 515.8m.  The hole was completed safely and securely and achieved near 100% core recovery. 

KKME 1-14 was sited in the Jwaneng-Makopong Shear/Feeder zone to the east of the main Molopo Farms Complex intrusion.

KKME 1-14 supports the geological proposition that the geology at Molopo Farm is that of a feeder zone.

DRILL HOLE KKME 1-6

Hole KKME 1-6, the second hole, attained a target depth of 597.8m. The hole was designed to intercept the upper side of a conductive body modelled from geophysical survey data to commence around 500m down-hole depth.

KKME 1-6 is located in the project’s Tshepo (Hope) Central Target Area, approximately 20km west-southwest of the programme’s first drill hole KKME 1-14 and along strike on the shear zone interpreted as the Molopo Farms Complex Feeder Zone.

The Tshepo (Hope) Central Target Area lies within the centre of the interpreted feeder zone inside the near-surface sub-crop of the Molopo Farms Complex in Licence PL311/2016.

FURTHER INFORMATION

Kalahari Key have signed agreements with Aster Funds Ltd (“AFL”) and Bell Geospace Ltd (“Bell”) to integrate innovative exploration survey and processing techniques with the existing Kalahari Key airborne, AMT ground and downhole geophysical datasets with a view to accelerating and refining the exploration targeting process for future drill testing.

AFL employ satellite-based Aster Thermal Imagery to provide target mapping through longwave infra-red (“LWIR”) and shortwave infra-red (“SWIR”) Spectral Analysis and electromagnetic (“EM”) conductivity analysis based on Synthetic Aperture Radar. These systems complement Kalahari Key’s geophysical datasets and will help in the rapid determination of both the near-surface geology and alteration minerals which could be linked to underlying mineralised systems.

The collaboration with Bell will facilitate the integration and analysis of the KKME airborne and ground geophysical data with Bell’s high-resolution Zeppelin airship-supported gravity data collected over the three Kalahari Key Molopo Farms Complex licence areas (PL202/2018, PL310/2016, PL 311/2016).

Andrew Hore – Quoted Micro 22 February 2021

AQUIS STOCK EXCHANGE

British Honey Company (BHC) is acquiring Union Distillers for an initial £8m in cash and shares. Leicestershire-based Union Distillers has been trading for more than eight years and has its own still and bonded warehouse. There is a range of gins, vodkas, a spiced rum, an absinthe and an espresso vodka liqueur under the Two Birds brand. There could be up to £2m of earn-out consideration payable in cash and shares depending on the target revenues from the Union products. A share issue raised £4.59m at 110p a share, while a convertible loan note issue added a further £1.63m. Union has £250,000 in cash. The deal should be earnings enhancing and cash generative. In the year to September 2020, Union generated revenues of £4.94m and pre-tax profit £1.13m. NAV was £1.52m.

National Milk Records (NMRP) reported flat interim revenues of £10.8m, but pre-tax profit increased by one-quarter to £500,000. Net debt was reduced to £1.1m despite investment in a genomics lab. An unchanged dividend of 1.25p a share will be paid. The outlook is positive for the dairy sector with UK milk prices expected to be maintained at current levels. Finance director Mark Frankcom has bought 9,974 shares at 101.75p each.

Imperial X (IMPP) is making four acquisitions and continues to move towards a standard listing. The purchases involve the issue of 245.6 million shares. Cloudbreak Discovery Corp, Howson Ventures Inc and Cabox Gold Corp are all being acquired, and certain assets of Anglo African Minerals are being bought. Imperial X has a £10m drawdown agreement with Crescita Capital. This lasts for three years.

Upper Thames Holdings (UPPT) is not going ahead with the proposed acquisition of Sweden-based mobile camera systems technology company Ridercam. Instead, the focus will be on blockchain and the linking of conventional currencies with cryptocurrencies. A placing has raised £516,000 at 1p a share. Peterhouse has been appointed as corporate adviser.

Hydro Hotel Eastbourne (HYDP) fell into loss last year as revenues slumped by two-fifths. The hotel has been closed or under restrictions for the period since the year end in October 2020. There is £1.03m in the bank and the NAV is £3.3m.

S-Ventures (SVEN) has bought a 75.1% stake in Ohso Chocolate for £295,000 in shares at 9p each. The remaining 24.9% stake in Ohso could be sold for nearly 1.1 million shares. Ohso is a probiotic chocolate supplier and it generated revenues of £311,000 during 2020. The S-Ventures chief executive and finance director owned 50.6% in Ohso.

World High Life (LIFE) is changing its name to Love Hemp. A general meeting will be held on 11 March. In the first half, revenues were £2.36m and second quarter revenues were nearly double those in the first quarter, although the gross margin fell. A debt of £2.15m has been settled by the issue of 86.1 million shares.

Sativa Wellness Inc (SWEL) has submitted a novel food application for validation by the Food Standards Agency. This covers a range of CBD products.

Wishbone Gold (WSBN) has identified new gold targets at the Red Setter project in Western Australia. The magnetic survey has discovered targets that are shallower than previously.

Power Metal Resources #POW – Warrant Update & Extension of Insider Warrants

Power Metal Resources PLC (LON:POW) the AIM listed metals exploration and development company is pleased to provide a warrant update for shareholders.

Update Regarding Exercise of Warrants Expiring February 2021

On 18 February 2019 the Company issued warrants (the “February 2019 Warrants”) as part of the refinancing of the Company as outlined below:

Description

Number of Warrants

Exercise Price

Financing Warrants

200,000,000

1.0p

Advisor Warrants

5,000,000

1.0p

Debt Settlement Warrants

6,000,000

0.5p

All February 2019 Warrants carried a two-year life which ended yesterday on 18 February 2021.

Power Metal can now confirm that, save for the 40 million Financing Warrants held by insiders and connected parties, further details of which are provided below (the “Insider Warrants”), the Company has received valid exercise notices for 100% of all the February 2019 Warrants.

The Company is currently processing exercise notices and will provide an Exercise of Warrants market announcement in the coming days. 

Warrant Exercise Proceeds and Working Capital Summary

In total the exercise of the February 2019 Warrants to date has raised an additional £1.68 million for the Company and in total all warrant exercises in 2020/2021 have raised circa £2.9million. 

This inflow of monies has significantly increased the Company’s working capital, including cash and listed investments, which currently stands at circa £3.28 million.

Extension of Insider Warrants

As at 18 February 2021 the following February 2019 Warrants held by Directors or their related parties  remained outstanding (“Insider Warrants”):

The Insider warrants were issued following participation in the February 2019 Financing.

The Company is currently finalising its audited financial statements for the year ended 30 September 2020, which Power Metal expects will be announced to the market in the week commencing 22 February 2021, consequently the Company is in a close period.

In addition the Company is currently managing numerous exploration programmes and corporate activities across its portfolio, including matters pertaining to its Australian gold joint venture, Red Rock Australasia Pty Limited, in which the Company holds a 49.9% interest (with joint venture partner Red Rock Resources plc (LON:RRR) holding 50.1%).

As a result, the February 2019 Warrants held by Paul Johnson (Chief Executive Officer of Power Metal), Andrew Bell (Chairman of Power Metal and Red Rock Resources plc) and those held by Red Rock Resources plc, could not be exercised on the expiry date of 18 February 2021 and may be extended under the warrant instrument, as outlined below.

Under the February 2019 Warrant instrument clause 2.3 provides that should any February 2019 Warrant holder be in the possession of price sensitive information and be thereby precluded from exercising warrant subscription rights, the exercise period shall be extended until 20 business days following the date on which the Warrant holder ceases to be an insider.

Given the level of ongoing operational activity there is a material likelihood that the receipt of price sensitive information could frequently restrict the ability of Paul Johnson, Andrew Bell and Red Rock Resources plc to exercise the February 2019 warrants.

Reflecting the above the Company has extended the Insider Warrants expiry date by three months to a new expiry date of 18 May 2021. 

RELATED PARTY NOTE

The extension of the Insider Warrants held by Paul Johnson, Andrew Bell and Red Rock Resources Plc as outlined above, have been treated as a related party transaction for the purposes of AIM Rule 13.  

Scott Richardson Brown and Edmund Shaw, being the independent Directors for the purposes of the extension of the expiry date of the Insider Warrants held by Paul Johnson and Andrew Bell and Red Rock Resources Plc consider, having consulted with the Company’s nominated adviser, SP Angel, that the extension of the warrant expiry date to 18 May 2021 to such related parties is fair and reasonable insofar as the Shareholders are concerned.

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of the Market Abuse Regulation (EU) 596/2014 as it forms part of UK domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (“MAR”), and is disclosed in accordance with the Company’s obligations under Article 17 of MAR.
