Sean Wade, Chief Executive Officer of Power Metal Resources plc, commented: 

“I am very pleased to be able to announce this capital raise and to reassure shareholders that we are now in a sustainable position to advance our exploration activities, most particularly in respect to our uranium portfolio. Moreover, I am delighted to welcome Rick Rule’s Term Oil vehicle to the register and the new shareholders who are joining us with his endorsement. This is not only a strong validation of our business model but also puts us on a sound footing to continue to deliver our goal of unlocking the significant inherent value in our portfolio.”
