Power Metal Resources plc ("POW" or the "Company")

Australia Gold JV - Update - New License Application

Power Metal Resources plc (LON:POW) the AIM listed metals exploration and development company is pleased to announce a further operational update in respect of its Australian gold joint venture ("JV") company Red Rock Australasia Pty Ltd ("RRAL") in which POW has a 49.9% interest.

BACKGROUND

RRAL previously commissioned and has now received historical reports and targeting assessments for its original 11 license applications, which are being used to inform the preparation of a NI 43-101 report and develop exploration programmes. 

To date the Company has set out in announcements the key findings from historical reports in respect of three license areas, namely:

-      EL007285, the Blue Ribbon project;

-      EL007271, the Blue Whale project, and:

-      EL007281, the Blue Chip project .

NEW LICENSE APPLICATION

Following a review of historical information in respect of a fourth license application EL007329, the Evergreen project, and based on additional research, gold targets were identified across the western and southern boundaries of EL007329.  Analysis of the license application area continues but the historical summary prepared for EL007329 ("Evergreen") will be posted shortly on the Company's website and will be accessible through the link provided below.

 

In addition, geophysical analysis conducted by RRAL has indicated potential new targets situated just outside the Evergreen license application area, and on review the area remained available.

Reflecting this a new additional license application has therefore been submitted for a further tenement, EL007460 ("Kilmore West") covering the new target area. Kilmore West contains numerous former mine workings and mineral occurrences and includes the old Donnybrook goldfield to the south of the license.

 

The new application has an area of 349 km2, giving RRAL a contiguous block in the Kilmore area (including Evergreen) of 835 km2.

 

Overall the RRAL licence application tenement area in the Central Victoria Goldfields will now total 2,188 km2, further details of which are provided below.

 

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

"The RRAL work is being undertaken in an environment where the wider structural understanding of the Victoria Goldfields is developing rapidly and where RRAL's work is revealing new prospective gold target areas. 

Given the material findings from the work at Evergreen, and the significant new gold target areas confirmed, RRAL decided to secure the additional ground under application, and this was executed immediately.

The RRAL JV now has 12 license applications covering some 2,188 km2 and a large number of highly gold prospective areas are emerging from the review work undertaken.  We are developing exploration plans for each project as further information is gathered and new targets are revealed.

The opportunities within the JV license application area are extensive and it is an exciting time as we continue to push on from an operational and corporate perspective."

The project reports will be uploaded shortly to the Australia gold JV page of the Company's website which may be accessed through the following link:
