Power Metal Resources #POW – New Australia Copper-Gold Opportunity

Power Metal Resources PLC (LON:POW) the London listed exploration company seeking large-scale metal discoveries across its global project portfolio announces details of a new Australia Copper-Gold project in South Australia (the “Project”).

The Project is centered on two large licence applications in South Australia and a map highlighting this can be found through the link below:



–  Power Metal has established a new wholly-owned Australian subsidiary, Power Metal Resources Australia Pty Limited (“Power Australia”).

–  Power Australia will be the host vehicle for new Australian exploration interests of Power Metal, which are being acquired to replace current interests in Australia which are the subject of planned spin-out/disposals (1).

–  Power Australia has submitted two licence applications (ELA 2021-00162 & EL 2021-00163) in the Gawler Craton of South Australia. The applications have been received and validated by the Department of Energy and Mining.

–  The licence applications cover an area of 1,994Km2 and are situated due south and west of Copper Search Limited’s Ruby Hill project (https://coppersearch.com.au/projects/). Copper Search Limited recently listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX:CUS) and currently has a market capitalisation of circa A$29m (https://coppersearch.com.au/asx/).

–  The applications are targeting Olympic Dam(2) style mineralisation and Power Australia are currently undertaking a review exercise to further refine geological understanding and prepare detailed exploration plans in readiness for ground operations when licences are granted.

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

“With the preparations underway for the spin-out/disposals of Power Metal’s two existing interests in Australia, we are now looking to rebuild our Australia portfolio.

Through our in-house team we have identified this new opportunity in South Australia, targeting large-scale discoveries in a geological environment that is prospective for Olympic Dam style mineralisation.

I look forward to providing further information in respect of our corporate and exploration plans in respect of this new opportunity.”


Tom O’Driscoll, on behalf of Western Mining Corporation in the 1980’s undertook a detailed lineament analysis across South Australia. His goal was to highlight 1st (major) and 2nd (minor) order structures across the State, and specifically to map the intersection of these various structures in order to assist with mineral exploration targeting. The intersection of these lineaments proved to be a valuable exploration tool as major mineral deposits, including Olympic Dam, were determined to fall near the mapped lineament intersections.

In South Australia, there is a major northwest-southeast oriented lineament (red corridor on attached map) which broadly connects up several mineral deposits and development projects including Olympic Dam, Carrapateena and Elizabeth Creek. This major lineament extends northwest through the new licence applications lodged by Power Australia where it is intersected by second order (white dashed lines on attached map), northeast-southwest trending lineaments which are broadly coincident with mineral deposits and development projects including Peculiar Knob, Snaefell, and Cairn Hill.

The licences therefore cover an intriguing area which is highlighted by various regionally important structural intersections – and covers an extended claim border with Copper Search Limited’s Ruby Hills project, where they will be launching various exploration initiatives in the coming months.
