Power Metal Resources plc

("Power Metal" or the "Company")

Strategic Partner Update - Botswana

Power Metal Resources plc (LON:POW), the AIM listed metals exploration and development company, is pleased to note the announcement by Kavango Resources (LON:KAV) ("Kavanago") released today announcing a GBP1.94m placing and an expansion of their drill programme at their wholly owned Kalahari Suture Zone project which may be viewed through the following link:


Power Metal and Kavango each have a 50% interest in Kanye Resources plc, a UK registered strategic joint venture company which wholly owns Kanye Resources (Pty) Ltd ("Kanye Botswana") a Botswana private company.

Kanye Botswana is the proposed holding company for the South Ghanzi - Kalahari Copper Belt and Ditau Camp Projects. An application has been made by Kavango to transfer the prospecting licences for both projects into Kanye Botswana.

There are plans to IPO Kanye Resources plc on a recognised stock exchange.

Power Metal currently holds 9,500,000 Kavango ordinary shares and 4,750,000 warrants to acquire Kavango shares at an exercise price of 2.5p per Kavango share at any time prior to 28 April 2023.

Power Metal's holding in Kavango at the market mid-price as at 1pm today (6.1p) is valued at GBP750,500 (value of shares and margin above exercise price on the 2.5p warrants).

Recognising our original cost of entry GBP38,000 (April 2020) and the GBP47,500 cost of exercising the previously held 1.0p warrants (exercised April 2021), Power Metal is showing a paper gain of GBP665,000 on its Kavango investment.

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

"As a strategic partner we have been enthused by the operational progress made and announced to market by Kavango. The GBP1.94m financing announced by Kavango today, on robust terms, is a further positive step forward and provides the working capital needed to support their ambitious exploration plans.

Power Metal is working with Kavango on the Kanye Resources strategic joint venture where drilling is planned on both the South Ghanzi - Kalahari Copper Belt (Copper, Silver focused) project and the Ditau Camp (Rare Earths focused) project. The announcement by Kavango today demonstrates their desire to accelerate drilling across all projects including the joint venture projects.

Power Metal continues to hold its full position in Kavango, and we have significant paper gain compared to the original GBP38,000 invested in April 2020. This demonstrates the value of holding both project and equity interests and we are optimistic of continuing growth in the value of our investment."
