Power Metal Resources #POW – Ditau Project Botswana – Exploration Update


Power Metal Resources plc (LON:POW), the London listed exploration company seeking large-scale metal discoveries across its global project portfolio announces an exploration update in regards to the Ditau Project located in southwestern Botswana targeting Rare Earth Elements (“REEs”) and base metals.

The Ditau Project is held in a 50/50 Joint Venture with Kavango Resources plc (“Kavango”). Kavango is the Operator.  


· Further to the exploration programme announced on 02 July 2021, Kavango has increased the exploration scope of Ditau to include base metals as well as REEs


· Accelerated drilling on I10 Target

o  Previous exploration by Kavango has identified a 2.5km by 2.8km target area at I10 with high AMT resistivity, coincidental with a gravity high anomaly.

o  Spectral Geophysics is to conduct a Time Domain Electromagnetic (“TDEM”) survey over I10 imminently.

o  Drilling of I10 planned in Q4 2021, together with a downhole electromagnetic survey (“EM”).

o  Environmental Management Plan currently in place.

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

“We believe the Ditau Project holds much potential and it is very good to see the next phase of work underway culminating in drilling of a key target planned for this year.

The interest in REEs is growing worldwide and to be actively progressing Ditau could not be more timely.

The Power Metal Botswana portfolio of projects continues to advance with exploration work underway across all interests.  Within Botswana, we expect the reverse  circulation drill programme currently underway at the Tati Project targeting gold and nickel near Francistown, to be completed in the coming days.”
