#NXT Next, the FTSE 100 and #POW Power Metal Resources spin-out with Alan Green

Next, the FTSE 100 and Power Metal Resources spin-out with Alan Green

Alan Green joins the first UK Investor Magazine Podcast of 2022 to discuss the key themes in markets this week and a number of UK equities.

The FTSE 100 posted a 4.6% gain in December and started the new year with a bang as it traded above 7,500 to hit pre-pandemic highs.

However, today saw markets hit by fears over the hawkishness of the Federal Reserve sending the FTSE 100 below 7,500.

We discuss Next after they posted an encouraging trading update in which they raised their forecasts for the year ahead and announced a 160p special dividend.

Alan outlines a recent interview he had with ECR Minerals and their recent developments.

Power Metal Resources is planning a number of spin-outs including Golden Metal Resources and we take a look at their plans for an IPO in April.

#POW Power Metal Resources – Golden Metal Resources – Pre-IPO Financing

pow golden

Power Metal Resources PLC (LON:POW) the London listed exploration company seeking large-scale metal discoveries across its global project portfolio, announces its wholly-owned subsidiary Golden Metal Resources Limited (“Golden Metal” or “GMT”) has completed its £750,000 Pre-IPO financing (“Financing”).

 

Golden Metal is a Nevada, USA, focused exploration and development company and is undertaking a planned listing on the London capital markets in 2022.

 

The latest exploration update in respect of Golden Metal is available through the following link:

https://www.londonstockexchange.com/news-article/POW/golden-metal-resources-exploration-update/15229671

 

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

“With Golden Metal Resources we have created an attractive Nevada, USA, focused investment opportunity, which we plan to list on the London capital markets as soon as possible.

The Nevada portfolio is carefully balanced, including the Pilot Mountain project which hosts a substantial JORC compliant tungsten focused resource, (with copper, silver and zinc in addition) which we believe has significant exploration potential and development upside.

The portfolio also includes Golconda Summit, where Golden Metal can earn a 100% interest, positioned in a neighbourhood of dramatic Carlin-style gold deposits and where our initial exploration work has indicated the potential for a significant gold discovery.

The Financing announced today means Golden Metal becomes self-financed and Power Metal will no longer be required to fund Golden Metal operations but instead will be a major strategic Golden Metal shareholder.

Alongside self-financing, Golden Metal has its own dedicated management team with broad spectrum knowledge and capabilities, and above all with the energy and focus to drive this exciting new junior exploration opportunity forward within the London markets.

 

HIGHLIGHTS:

–  Capital restructuring of Golden Metal share capital underway to enable additional shares to be issued and to amend the underlying Par Value in readiness for the planned listing of Golden Metal (“Restructuring”).

 

–  Golden Metal has raised £750,000 through a Pre-IPO financing undertaken with First Equity Limited, corporate broker, at a price of 6.67p per Golden Metal new ordinary share of 1 pence each (“Ordinary Share), which will represent 18.75% of the issued share capital of Golden Metal on completion of the Restructuring and the Financing.

 

–  50% of Financing monies will be payable to Golden Metal by 31.12.21 and 50% by 31.01.22 whereupon Financing completion will occur (“Completion”) and shares will be issued to Financing participants.

 

–  Power Metal has subscribed for £75,000 of the Financing, subscribing for 1,124,437 Ordinary Shares (“POW Subscription”).

 

–  Following the Restructuring and completion of the Financing, Power Metal will hold a total of 49,874,437 Ordinary Shares representing 83.13% of Golden Metal.

 

–  On the basis of issued share capital on completion of the Restructuring and Pre-IPO Financing the valuation of Golden Metal will be circa £4million, and Power Metal’s 83.13% holding will be valued at circa £3.33million.

 

–  The monies raised enable Golden Metal to fully self-finance its operations including IPO listing advisory costs, corporate expenses and various project expenditures.

 

–  Paul Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of Power Metal and director of Golden Metal has subscribed for £50,000 (749,625 Ordinary Shares) in the Financing.

 

–  Should Golden Metal not be listed  on a recognised stock exchange in London within 12 months of today’s date, subscribers to the Financing may elect to sell back their Golden Metal shares to Power Metal at the financing price of 6.67p, with the number of Power Metal shares to be issued based on the ten day volume weighted average price of Power Metal shares immediately prior to the 12 month anniversary (“Buyback Right”) of today’s date.  Paul Johnson, CEO of Power Metal, has elected to relinquish this Buyback Right.  Power Metal will also not hold the Buyback Right.

 

–  No warrants are included automatically with the Financing, however should warrants be offered as part of the planned IPO financing, participants in this Pre-IPO Financing will receive warrants on the same terms.

#TYM Tertiary Minerals – Strategic and Operational Update and Decision to Exercise Further Zambian Licence Options

Tertiary Minerals plc (AIM: TYM) is pleased to provide a strategic and operational update and details of an updated Investor Presentation. The Company is also pleased to advise that, further to its announcement of 2 August 2021, its 96% owned Zambian subsidiary, Luangwa Minerals Limited (“Luangwa”), will exercise its option with Mwashia Resources Ltd (“Mwashia”) to enter into agreements to acquire up to a 90% joint venture interest in the four additional Large Exploration Licences held by Mwashia. These are licence numbers 27065-HQ-LEL (Lubuila), 27066-HQ-LEL (Mukai), 27067-HQ-LEL (Konkola West) and 27068-HQ-LEL (Mushima North). Tertiary is already earning up to a 90% interest from Mwashia in licence number 27069-HQ-LEL at Jacks.

Highlights

  • Tertiary’s strategic focus is on energy transition and precious metals located in stable and democratic, geologically prospective, mining-friendly jurisdictions.

 

  • The Company’s current principal activities are the discovery and development of copper, gold and silver resources in Nevada and in Zambia.

 

  • Planning is currently underway for drilling at Pyramid (silver-gold, Nevada) and Jacks (copper, Zambia) and for trenching at Brunton Pass (copper, Nevada).

 

  • Drilling is planned for Pyramid for Q1 2022 and for Jacks in Q2 2022. Trenching at Brunton Pass is planned for Q1 2022. Ground geophysics and high resolution XRF/sol sampling to aid drilling targeting at Jacks is planned for Q4 2021, but is contingent on permitting and rainfall.

 

  • Tertiary will exercise its option to earn a joint venture interest in the remaining four Mwashia licences in Zambia: 27065-HQ-LEL (Lubuila), 27066-HQ-LEL (Mukai), 27067-HQ-LEL (Konkola West) and 27068-HQ-LEL (Mushima North).

 

  • An updated Investor Presentation is available here and on the company website.

Commenting today, Managing Director Patrick Cullen said:

“We are looking forward to drilling the North Ruth target at the Pyramid silver-gold project. The recently reported high grade silver results and significant extension of the mineralised zone offer a compelling drill target. We look forward to announcing that schedule in more detail once plans are finalised.

We are also very pleased to be moving ahead with the option agreement with Mwashia in Zambia. We have had enough time to consider and examine the prospectivity and strategic value of the additional four licences in the original agreement. We believe our timing is good. Copper prices remain high and copper is being described as being ‘the nexus of the energy transition’. Also, the recent democratic and peaceful transition to a UNDP government in Zambia, and the subsequent policy changes have already brought encouragement to the mining sector in this world-class copper mining jurisdiction.

I have recently visited Zambia and met with our partners, Mwashia, and with our local representative. Mwashia has made excellent progress in advancing permits for the Jacks licence. I also made site visits to both Jacks and the Konkola West licences. We have gathered more information, including further detailed historic documentation which is aiding our exploration planning, at Jacks in particular where we look forward to drilling in 2022.”

  1. Luangwa may earn, and has the right to take up, an initial 51% joint venture interest in each of the four licences by spending US$50,000 (per licence) on exploration in the 12-month period following approval of the EPB by ZEMA.

 

  1. On taking up a 51% interest in any of the licences, Luangwa and Mwashia will enter into a Joint Venture Agreement (“JVA”) per licence and on signing the JVA Luangwa will pay US$30,000 to Mwashia per JVA.

 

  1. Luangwa may earn a further 39% interest (total 90% interest) in each of the licences by spending a further US$100,000 over 18 months from the date of signing the relevant JVA.

Power Metal Resources #POW – Uranium Portfolio Expansion – Athabasca Basin

Power Metal Resources PLC (LON:POW) the London listed exploration company seeking large-scale metal discoveries across its global project portfolio announces a uranium exploration portfolio expansion at its 100% owned interests surrounding the Athabasca Basin in northern Saskatchewan, Canada.

PORTFOLIO HIGHLIGHTS:

– Total land holdings surrounding the Athabasca Basin have now been increased by 144.84 km2to a total land holding of 411.96 km2 (41,196 hectares), which includes additional ground staked surrounding the Company’s Thibaut Lake, Clearwater, and Reitenbach Uranium properties – representing a 54.2% increase in total land holdings.

– An additional 107.48 km2 were staked surrounding the company’s Reitenbach Uranium Property. The new claims cover three additional uranium mineral deposit index points as well as a lake-sediment result of 130ppm Uranium, taken from the Geological Survey of Saskatchewan’s lake sediment analysis database (database of 13,195 individual lake sediment results from the Precambrian Shield area of Saskatchewan)1. The lake sediment result represents the 11th highest sample in the entire provincial database (99.9th percentile).

–    The Reintenbach Uranium Property is now fully contiguous with ground owned by multiple private claim holders, as well as Forum Energy Metals Corp (TSX:FMC).

– An additional 21.95 km2 were staked surrounding the company’s Thibaut Lake Uranium Property. The Property is now contiguous with one of the largest private landholders within Saskatchewan, as well as a British Columbia registered company with unknown owners.

–    An additional 15.41 km2 were staked surrounding the Company’s Clearwater Uranium Property. The new claim covers three base-metal mineral deposit index points. The Thibaut Lake Uranium Property is now contiguous with ground owned by Eagle Plains Resources Ltd., as well as with one of the largest private landholders within Saskatchewan.

–    Historic data compilation is progressing at pace across the portfolio with full analysis completed on three properties to date. The results of this ongoing work will be released to the market in the coming weeks.

–    All property expansions were acquired through staking and as a result Power Metal, through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, will have a 100% interest with no outstanding royalties or encumbrances.

–  The claims have been registered with the Mineral Administration Registry Saskatchewan and the total cost of claim staking was C$28,141.  The claims are valid for 2 years and there is no minimum spend commitment required.

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

“The additional areas staked by the Company are prospective for uranium and base-metals in areas surrounding the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Our plan was to steadily increase our Athabasca land holdings, however given the pace at which ground is being staked by various other parties, and the high-value transactions taking place around the Athabasca Basin, we have accelerated our staking campaign.

Power Metal now has exposure to 412 km2 of ground that we consider to be highly prospective for uranium mineralisation, representing a strategic portfolio of uranium focused exploration interests within a top mining jurisdiction.

Our first work programme covering three of the seven properties was completed last week and we await assay results from samples which have been submitted on a rush-basis for expeditious turnaround.” 

Uranium Property Holding Structure

Power Metal has a 100% subsidiary Power Metal Canada Inc (“Power Canada”). which acts as the holding company for certain Canadian project operations. 

Power Canada has a wholly-owned subsidiary, 102134984 Saskatchewan Ltd, which is the holder of the Company’s uranium portfolio.

#POW Power Metal Resources – Uranium Exploration Update – Athabasca Basin

Power Metal Resources PLC (LON:POW) the London listed exploration company seeking large-scale metal discoveries across its global project portfolio announces a uranium exploration update from three of its seven 100% owned interests surrounding the Athabasca Basin in northern Saskatchewan, Canada.

Previously on 26/10/2021 Power Metal announced that its Phase I work programme was underway, and that additional ground surrounding the Company’s Tait Hill Property had been acquired. A link to the announcement can be found below.

https://www.londonstockexchange.com/news-article/POW/uranium-portfolio-update-athabasca-basin/15187895

 

PORTFOLIO HIGHLIGHTS:

–  The Phase I work programme is now complete. A total of 20 rock samples were collected from Tait Hill (8 samples), Thibaut Lake (7 samples), and Clearwater (5 samples). All samples have been submitted for rush-assay for expedited turnaround at the Saskatchewan Research Council laboratory in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The samples will be subject to a uranium-exploration analytical package which includes uranium, various base/trace-metals, as well as a suite of rare-earth elements (“REEs”).

–  An RS-125 Spectrometer was employed for the duration of the programme, this is a portable handheld gamma-ray survey device which measures the radioactivity of the sample being tested (in counts per second – CPS). Several outcrops were analysed from all three properties, some which ran as high as 65,535 CPS, which represents the upper limits of the device employed. All rock samples collected were also analysed on-site with 17/20 samples returning >1,000 CPS, 11/20 samples returning >2,500 CPS, with a individual sample high of 35,000 CPS, see Table 2 below for full sample CPS data.

–  All samples were logged by an experienced geologist as being variably hematite- and clay-altered granitic to gneissic rocks, with varying amounts of urananite mineralisation as well as yellow-orange oxide coatings (possibly Carnotite or Uranophane).

–     Additional 1,129-hectare claim (see Table 1) was staked to provide further coverage over several uranium-rich lakes surrounding the Company’s Tait Hill uranium Property where 308,000kg of uranium with a value of US$25.6 million (c. US$28 million at $42/lb uranium) was calculated by the Saskatchewan Mining Development Corporation following a detailed lake-sediment drilling programme completed in 1980.1

 

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

“Power Metal has embarked on a campaign to build significant uranium portfolio exposure for our investors.  We started this campaign several months ago with the initial staking of our land package surrounding the prolific Athabasca Basin located in Northern Saskatchewan, and continue to build our uranium exploration project portfolio there, as you will see with the new ground secured today.

Field observations from Phase I exploration are encouraging and we look forward to the receipt of assay results which are being expedited as rush assays, as we are eager to get the results back quickly.

More work is being done to review additional uranium opportunities and we are optimistic of success in this regard.”
