#POW Power Metal Resources – Haneti Project – Diamond Drilling Complete

Power Metal Resources PLC (LON:POW) the London listed exploration company seeking large-scale metal discoveries across its global project portfolio announces an update from the Company’s inaugural diamond drilling programme on the nickel-copper-cobalt-platinum group element Haneti Project (“Haneti” or the “Project”) located in central Tanzania.

Highlights:

–    The Company confirms the drill programme has been completed successfully with a total of 900.04 metres completed across three drill holes as planned.

–    Core logging and sampling is underway, with samples being prepared for thin section petrographic analysis and laboratory assay testing (for nickel, copper, platinum, palladium, cobalt, chromium and gold) at SGS Tanzania.

–     Large intersections of serpentinite and gabbroic rocks were identified in MWDD01 and MWDD02 (Mwaka drill holes) with indications of peridotitic sequences, the latter subject to confirmation through the thin section petrographic analysis.

– MHDD01 (Mihanza drill hole) intersected massive serpentinite from surface and serpentinised meta-gabbroic rocks at depth. 

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

“This drill programme was safely executed and delivered on schedule and within budget. We are grateful to the operational team for a job well done.

Now that the physical drilling has been completed we move into the core logging, sampling and testing phase, and clearly there are various elements to this.

We are cautious with early interpretations until the core logging and testing is complete.  What we can say is that we have seen thick sections of ultramafic rocks and have postulated that the anticipated geological model has been demonstrated from the core recovered.

We are encouraged by the technical and geological success so far and look forward to providing further updates as and when they become available. 

Joint Venture Ownership Structure

The Haneti Project is currently held under a Joint Venture (“JV”) with Katoro Gold Plc (LON:KAT “Katoro”) who hold a 65% interest, with the remaining 35% interest held by Power Metal.

 

COMPETENT PERSON STATEMENT

The technical information contained in this disclosure has been read and approved by Mr Nick O’Reilly (MSc, DIC, MIMMM, MAusIMM, FGS), who is a qualified geologist and acts as the Competent Person under the AIM Rules – Note for Mining and Oil & Gas Companies. Mr O’Reilly is a Principal consultant working for Mining Analyst Consulting Ltd which has been retained by Power Metal Resources PLC to provide technical support.

Glossary:

· Serpentinite: a green coloured rock formed through the low-temperature metamorphism of ultramafic rocks from the earrth’s mantle. The metamorphic chemical reactions convert unhydrous ferromagnesian silicate minerals (pyroxene, olivine) into hydrous silicate minerals (serpentine).

· Gabbroic: rock within the range classified as Gabbro which is a coarse-grained, mafic intrusive igneous rock formed from the slow cooling of magnesium-rich and iron-rich magma. Gabbro is found at the mid-ocean ridges and as plutons associated with continental volcanism. Gabbro intrusives can be associated with chromium, nickel, cobalt, gold, silver, platinum and copper mineralisation.

· Peridotitic: related to Peridotite rock, a dense, coarse-grained ultramafic igneous rock consisting mostly of the silicate minerals olivine and pyroxene. Peridotites is often a constituent in the layered igneous complexes that can host platiunum group metals and nickel.

· Ultramafic: Ultramafic rocks are a group of igneous and meta-igneous rocks with a very low silica content (less than 45%), generally >18% MgO, high FeO, low potassium, and are composed of usually greater than 90% mafic minerals (dark colored, high magnesium and iron content). The Earth’s mantle is composed of ultramafic rocks. Intrusive ultramafic rocks are often found in large, layered ultramafic igneous intrusions where differentiated rock types often occur in layers and metals can be concentrated.

Power Metal Resources #POW – Haneti Project – Drill Programme Commencement

Power Metal Resources PLC (LON:POW) the London listed exploration company seeking large-scale metal discoveries across its global project portfolio announces that mobilisation has successfully commenced for the Company’s inaugural diamond drilling programme on the Haneti Project (“Haneti” or the “Project”) located in central Tanzania. 

The Haneti Project is currently held under a Joint Venture (“JV”) with Katoro Gold Plc (LON:KAT “Katoro”) who hold a 65% interest, with the remaining 35% interest held by Power Metal.

A map highlighting the planned locations for the 2022 diamond drilling programme can be found at the following link:

https://www.powermetalresources.com/haneti-project-drill-programme/

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

“The Haneti Project, targeting magmatic sulphide hosted nickel, copper and platinum group metals, represents a unique district-scale opportunity for Power Metal and our JV partner Katoro .

The preparatory work leading up to this campaign has been extensive, though ultimately, it is deep diamond drilling that is now needed in order to broaden our understanding of the geological environments and to unlock the potential for a commercial discovery.

With some considerable enthusiasm we launch the programme and very much look forward to updates  from the field, and ultimately the results of the assay testing of drill core samples which will be collected during the 2022 campaign.

HIGHLIGHTS:

–      Mobilisation by the drilling contractor has commenced with the drilling rig expected to be on site around 17 January 2022, and drilling expected to commence on or around 20 January 2022. 

–      The planned 1,000m drill programme consists of three deep diamond core targeting magmatic nickel (Ni) copper (Cu) platinum group element (PGE) sulphide mineralisation.  The work will constitute the first diamond drilling conducted out by the JV within the Haneti Project area.

–      In advance of the drilling programme the Haneti Project licences have successfully been renewed for an additional 7 years.

–      The planned drillholes are designed to provide a full intersection through the various ultramafic sequences in order to produce fresh rock samples for detailed geochemical and petrographic analysis.

–      Two diamond core holes are planned at the Mwaka Target for a combined total of approximately 505m. The holes have current planned depths of 264m and 241m and are designed to test two discrete high-priority conductors which were identified during the 2012 electromagnetic (“EM”) geophysics survey.

–      A single 495m deep diamond core drill hole is planned at the Mihanza Target. The Mihanza target was subject to a shallow Rotary Air Blast (“RAB”) drill programme that was completed in early 2021; the programme confirmed the presence of near-surface Ni-Cu-PGE sulphide mineralisation. The Mihanza Target is centred around coincident magnetic high geophysical and nickel geochemical anomalies. Detailed modelling and inversion analysis of the airborne magnetic data completed in 2014 identified a large plug shaped magnetic anomaly (following work undertaken by consultants to former project owner Kibo Mining plc this was interpreted to represent an ultramafic body) which lies at roughly 300m below surface. This plug shaped body has never been drill tested, and the drill hole planned at Mihanza is specifically designed to intersect the anomaly at depth.
