The team are well versed in how the proprietary technology at play here can form such an important role in the UK battery ecosystem as we take on the lead role in the industrial scale-up in lithium-ion battery recycling. I look forward to joining the team and driving the development of solutions for battery testing and take-back recycling, with a clear focus on surpassing our customer’s needs and requirements.”


Robin Brundle, Chairman of Technology Minerals and Director of Recyclus, said : “Matthew is well-practised in building transformational businesses in key industrial sectors and his appointment comes at a very appropriate stage for Recyclus Group.

#MNRG MetalNRG – BritNRG Update

MetalNRG plc (“MNRG” or the “Company”)  announces that further to the announcement made on 31 January 2022 that it had filed and served civil legal proceedings in the English High Court against Brit ENERGY Holdings LLP (the “LLP”), Pierpaolo Rocco (“Mr Rocco”) and BritNRG Limited (the “Joint Venture Company”) (together the “Defendants”) for, inter alia, a declaration and the recovery from the Defendants of monies paid to the LLP in 2021, it has, with disappointment, agreed to a further request for extensions of time by the Defendants for the filing of defences to 18 March 2022 (the maximum time permitted without the consent of the Court).

The Company has granted the extensions with certain conditions attached, in the light of the fact that any hearing at which opposition could be argued would inevitably only take place after the date of the requested extension. Accordingly, given the Company is primarily focussed on receipt of the actual defences, in order to assess their content, consent was granted by agreement. 

The Company will provide further updates on these issues and the legal proceedings as appropriate and once the defences have been received.

The release of this information was arranged by Rolf Gerritsen, Chief Executive Officer.

Power Metal Resources #POW – Exercise of Options and Director Option Update


Exercise of Options and Director Option Update


Power Metal Resources plc (LON:POW) the London listed exploration company seeking large-scale metal discoveries across its global project portfolio announces an update regarding Company options.


Option Exercise


Power Metal has received notices to exercise options by a former director over 11,113,929 new ordinary shares of 0.1 pence each in the Company (“Option Shares”) at an exercise price of 1.0 pence per new ordinary share raising an additional £111,139 for the Company.


Director Option Update


On 15 February 2019 Paul Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of the Company was awarded 13,613,929 options to subscribe for new ordinary shares of 0.1 pence each in the Company at an exercise price of 1.0p (“Director Options”).  The Director Options had an expiry date of 15 February 2022.


On 15 February 2022 Paul Johnson was unable to exercise the Director Options being in a close period due to finalisation of the Company’s audited financial statements for the year ended 30 September 2021 and due to possession of inside information in relation to the Company’s exploration and corporate work activities.


Under the Director Option agreement clause 3.5 states:


“In the event the Option Holder is in possession of relevant price sensitive information or is restricted from dealing pursuant to the provisions of the Market Abuse Regulations or by any other share dealing code, applicable law or regulation and is thereby precluded from exercising the Options or any part thereof immediately prior to the Final Exercise Date, then the Final Exercise Date shall be deemed to be extended until the date which falls 10 business days after the later of the date on which the Option Holder ceases to be an insider or the date on which the close period or other prohibited period ends or is otherwise no longer prohibited.”


The Director Options are thereby automatically extended under clause 3.5 as outlined above.


Recognising the level of operational activity and anticipated news flow in the near term it is considered unlikely that the Director Options will be freely exercisable for some time and therefore the Company has agreed that the Director Options may be exercised up to 15 May 2022. All other terms of the Director Options remain unchanged.


Related Party Note

The extension of the Director Options held by Paul Johnson as outlined above, has been treated as a related party transaction pursuant to AIM Rule 13 of the AIM Rules for Companies.

Scott Richardson Brown and Edmund Shaw, being the independent Directors for the purposes of the extension of the expiry date of the Director Options held by Paul Johnson consider, having consulted with the Company’s nominated adviser, SP Angel, that the extension of the expiry date to 15 May 2022 of the Director Options held by Paul Johnson to be fair and reasonable insofar as the Shareholders are concerned.




Application will be made for the 11,113,929 Option Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM which is expected to occur on or around 24 February 2022 (“Admission”). The Option Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the ordinary shares of the Company currently traded on AIM.

Following Admission, the Company’s issued share capital will comprise 1,466,953,915 ordinary shares of 0.1p each. This number will represent the total voting rights in the Company and may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculation by which they can determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority’s Disclosure and Transparency Rules.


#SVML Sovereign Metals – Former Rio Tinto Executive Joins Sovereign Board


· Leading international mining executive, Mr Nigel Jones, appointed as Non-Executive Director of Sovereign Metals and Chairman of the ESG Committee

· Mr Jones has over 30 years of mining industry experience with 22 years in a number of senior roles at Rio Tinto Group

· Most recently, Mr Jones was Managing Director of Rio Tinto’s Simandou iron ore project, one of the world’s largest proposed mining devlopment


Sovereign Metals Limited (ASX:SVM; AIM:SVML) (the Company or Sovereign) is pleased to announce that highly experienced mining industry executive Mr Nigel Jones has been appointed as a Non-Executive Director of the Company.

From 2019 to 2021, Mr Jones was Managing Director of Rio Tinto Group’s (Rio Tinto) very large Simandou iron ore project in Guinea, west Africa. In this role, he was accountable for all aspects of the project’s development, including its complex environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy. Such aspects included impacts on natural ecosystems, biodiversity, and community and government relations.

Mr Jones was also a member of the senior leadership team of the Energy and Minerals product group, which incorporated Rio Tinto’s titanium dioxide feedstock businesses in Canada and southern Africa. Prior roles in Rio Tinto included Head of Business Development, Head of Business Evaluation and Managing Director of the group’s Marine operations.

Sovereign’s Managing Director Dr Julian Stephens commented : “We are delighted to welcome Nigel to the board of Sovereign Metals. To attract an individual of Nigel’s calibre is not only testament to the commercial potential of Kasiya, but also the very favourable ESG characteristics of the project, in which we strive to be best-in-class. Nigel’s input into our ESG strategy will significantly benefit our pursuit to ensure that sustainability, diversity and community are core in everything we do.”

Nigel Jones commented : “I am delighted to be joining the team at this very exciting stage for the Company. Sovereign has very quickly already demonstrated the huge potential of its Kasiya rutile discovery in Malawi as it continues to explore and develop this asset that will be of strategic importance to the titanium feedstock industry. I very much look forward to being part of the Company’s growth as it moves towards becoming a standard-bearer for the importance of sustainable mining practices for a better future.”
