Power Metal Resources plc

("Power Metal" or the "Company")

Quarterly Business Operational Update

Power Metal Resources PLC (LON:POW) the London listed exploration company seeking large-scale metal discoveries across its global project portfolio announces the December 2021 quarterly business operational update for shareholders.

QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS:

Exploration

- Completion of a 1,092 metre reverse circulation drill programme at the Tati Project, Botswana, designed to follow up on Phase I and II results which highlighted kilometre-scale gold, arsenic and nickel geochemical anomalies coincident with various geological structures highlighted by ground geophysical surveys.

- Bonanza grade silver achieved in 10 out of 19 drillholes completed during the Phase I Silver Peak Project, Canada, drill programme, follow up overlimit assays confirmed high-grade copper, antimony and lead results increasing the average silver equivalent grade by 18.8%.

- Rock sampling and prospecting programmes conducted at the company's Tait Hill, Thibaut Lake and Clearwater uranium properties surrounding the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada, returned high-grade assay results up to 38,600ppm (3.86%) uranium.

- Securing the option agreement for Kavango Resources plc ("Kavango") to acquire current project partner Kalahari Key Mineral Exploration Pty Ltd ("Kalahari Key"), through which exploration for nickel, copper and platinum group elements ("PGE") at the Molopo Farms Complex Project would see a significant step forward. Having Kavango as the operational partner should streamline the ongoing project progression which is key following the discovery of nickel sulphides during the inaugural 2021 drill programme.

Spin-Out Vehicles

- New Ballarat Gold Corporation ("NBGC"): grant of licence applications in Victoria, Australia, further increase the licence footprint to over 1,500km(2) ; NBGC's inaugural diamond drilling programme has commenced targeting gold mineralisation across a number of exploration targets.

- Golden Metal Resources Limited ("Golden Metal"): Acquisition of Pilot Mountain Project which hosts a substantial JORC compliant Mineral Resource (tungsten with significant silver, copper & zinc credits) in Nevada, USA, into Golden Metal which is seeking a listing in London. Golden Metal is now moving through the listing process with a full management board, suite of listing advisers and has recently completed a GBP750,000 pre-IPO financing.

- First Development Resources Limited ("FDR Australia"): Further commercial and technical developments within Power Metal's FDR Australia subsidiary company with preliminary exploration work delineating a number of exciting magnetic bullseye gold/copper targets at the Wallal Project located within the prolific Paterson Province. Further acquisition into FDR Australia of the Selta Project targeting uranium and rare-earth elements in the Northern Territory, Australia.

Corporate PLC

- Financing conducted in November raising GBP1,050,000 in a placing conducted at the then mid-market price of 1.75p.

- Operational working capital comprising cash and listed investments at 31/12/2021 amounted to GBP2.91M and unaudited total assets at 30/11/2021 of GBP10.1M (before valuation uplift in spin-out vehicles to pre-IPO valuation).

- New team members recruited in the quarter include a Chief Executive Officer for First Development Resources Limited (planned UK listing company) and Power Metal commercial management, accounting and business administration staff. Additional recruitment underway to support the growth of the Company and its various spinouts.

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

"We have chosen a non-conformist path for Power Metal in order to build a company, and investment proposition, quite unlike any other within the London junior resource space.

We have opted for scale and diversity, assembling a large portfolio, widely spread across multiple jurisdictions and commodities, with a main focus on district scale opportunities.

Our mission, after the first phase of portfolio building, was to create value through proactive exploration and corporate activity. We are doing just that as you will see from the project level detail provided for the most recent quarter below.

We currently sit at an important point in the Power Metal life-cycle, coincidentally, at a time when the world is demanding unprecedented quantities of metals for investment security, new infrastructure builds and to power the ongoing green technological revolution.

Despite the world's aspirations, the practical reality is that in recent years we have seen metal supply attrition with a lack of large-scale metal discoveries combined with subdued investment in the exploration and project development space.

With such skewed supply/demand fundamentals, sectors can come alive, and we believe 2022 will be an exciting year for the junior mining resource space.

The final quarter of 2021 is captured below with a brief assessment by the Company of each project and company within our portfolio. The work completed during the final quarter of 2021 has set up Power Metal well for the coming year."

                            project. 
                            In order to simplify the project ownership 
                            structure and streamline ground operations 
                            in Botswana, an option agreement was signed 
                            with Kavango Resources plc to acquire Kalahari 
                            Key and its 60% interest in the MFC Project. 
                            In lieu of an option fee and as part of 
                            its due diligence, Kavango is undertaking 
                            an agreed exploration work programme on 
                            the MFC project, the results of which will 
                            be made available to Power Metal in due 
                            course. 
                            If Kavango exercises its option Power Metal 
                            will sell its circa 21% interest in Kalahari 
                            Key in exchange for Kavango shares and warrants. 
                            Power Metal will retain and intends to maintain

                            Company View: 
                            Proof of the geological model and the identification 
                            of nickel sulphides in the inaugural three 
                            drill hole programme was an extremely positive 
                            initial outcome for the MFC Project. 
                            It became evident however, that progress 
                            was slower than ideal particularly given 
                            the positive results of maiden drilling 
                            programme. As a result, action was needed 
                            to simplify the project ownership structure 
                            in order to accelerate work progression 
                            and streamline ongoing operations. 
                            The Kavango option agreement was an important 
                            step in this regard. We look forward to 
                            the results of the option work programme 
                            which should provide valuable additional 
                            data to help plan the next phase of drilling 
                            to follow up on the encouraging results 
                            achieved thus far.

                              who are the operators of the project. 
 
                              Drill target refinement continues at the 
                              South Ghanzi Project, together with initial 
                              exploration at the South Ghanzi Extension 
                              licences and the Mamuno licences acquired 
                              more recently in August 2021 (2) . Together, 
                              the ground footprint in the Kalahari Copper 
                              Belt ("KCB Project") totals 4,257km(2) . 
 
                              Approval of the Environmental Management 
                              Plan ("EMP") for South Ghanzi was secured 
                              in October 2021 clearing the last key administrative 
                              hurdle and enabling drilling to be undertaken 
                              subject to the ongoing target refinement. 
 
                              The joint venture partners continue to consider 
                              the planned IPO of Kanye Resources (through 
                              a UK listing company, Kanye Resources plc) 
                              and an update in this regard will be provided 
                              as soon as practicable. 
 
                              Company View: 
 
                              Approval of the EMP was a major step forward 
                              for the KCB Project. The KCB holds district 
                              scale potential and Power Metal is working 
                              with Kavango to ensure the initial drill 
                              holes are optimally cited to gather the 
                              best geological data and maximise the chance 
                              of discovery. 
 
                              The joint venture partners anticipate a 
                              material budget will be applied to drilling 
                              at the KCB Project and therefore appropriate 
                              investment is being made in preparatory 
                              measures to optimise the vectoring of drill 
                              targets.

       Tati Project 
         Botswana            The Company recently completed a maiden 
      (Gold - Nickel)        drill programme following up positive initial 
         POW: 100%           exploration results including geochemical 
                             soil sampling, mapping & prospecting, and 
                             ground-based geophysics including high-resolution 
                             magnetic and radiometric surveys. 
 
                             The initial exploration highlighted five 
                             target areas across the two licences, which 
                             are defined by kilometre-scale geochemical

                             From the original announcement confirming 
                             an option for the Tati Project in May 2021(3) 
                             , Power Metal have moved through a number 
                             of initial exploration steps very rapidly. 
 
                             We await the results from the recent RC 
                             drilling campaign which will provide key 
                             information with regard to sub surface geology 
                             to complement the information collected 
                             at surface from geochemical and geophysical 
                             exploration work. 
 
                             The identification of multiple kilometre-scale 
                             gold, arsenic and nickel anomalies so early 
                             in the work programme, provides multiple 
                             opportunities for a gold or nickel discovery. 
                             We are therefore pushing as hard as possible 
                             to accelerate project exploration.

                             We are continuing to push for an acceptable 
                             drill programme including target finalisation 
                             and sourcing of appropriate contractors. 
                             Company View: 
                             The 6.8km copper-cobalt anomaly is an interesting 
                             exploration target which we would like to 
                             see drill tested. 
                             The Kisinka Project has discovery potential, 
                             but the pace of commercial and exploration 
                             progress in-country has been slower than 
                             ideal and this is something we are working 
                             to resolve.

         POW: 35% 
                              The next stage of exploration at the Haneti 
                              Project is deep diamond core ("DC") drill 
                              testing of targets prospective for nickel 
                              sulphide / PGE mineralisation.

                              in January 2022 and further information 
                              will follow in due course. 
 
                              Company View: 
 
                              Based on the results achieved to date at 
                              the Haneti Project, we are of the belief 
                              that the next stage of exploration needs 
                              to be deep diamond drilling, and we are 
                              very pleased that this work is about to 
                              commence. 
 
                              If the DC drilling is successful in the 
                              delineation of the mineralising system we 
                              are ultimately seeking the discovery of 
                              a nickel sulphide and PGE deposit and the 
                              impact on both Katoro and Power Metal could 
                              be significant. 
 
                              Power Metal are therefore eager to see diamond 
                              drilling commence in January 2022 and the 
                              findings therefrom.

        (Silver)         completed and assay results from this programme 
        POW: 30%         were completed with 10 out of the 19 holes 
                         drilled returning bonanza grade silver (>1,000g/t 
                         Ag) with significant copper, zinc, lead 
                         and antimony credits, and 14 of the 19 holes 
                         returning elevated silver mineralisation.

                         The initial drill assay results from the 
                         Phase I programme were announced by the 
                         Company in November 2021 and may be viewed

                         In addition, overlimit assays were conducted 
                         highlighting high grade copper, antimony 
                         and lead results. The overlimit assays received

                         from silver to silver equivalent for the 
                         calculated intervals. The overlimit assay 
                         results were announced by the Company in

                         on the Silver Peak Project. 
                         The report was commissioned to prepare the 
                         Silver Peak Project to potentially act as 
                         a qualified project for a possible public 
                         listing. 
                         Company View: 
                         The results from all stages of exploration 
                         at Silver Peak have been increasingly exciting 
                         for Power Metal and our partners. Repeated 
                         bonanza grade silver results are particularly 
                         attractive and, in our opinion, have led 
                         to a significant increase in the overall 
                         project valuation. 
                         There are a number of potential options 
                         for project commercialisation and we continue 
                         to work with our partners to review possible 
                         next steps.

                          The test pitting programme was completed 
                          successfully in early December 2021. 
 
                          As part of the programme, multiple test 
                          pits were excavated to bedrock at Big Boulder 
                          Wash (3 pits) and Breccia Hill (3 pits). 
 
                          A total of 13 rock samples were taken from 
                          various trenches at Breccia Hill, as well 
                          as three additional rock samples from various 
                          localities located near to the trenches. 
                          Rocks sampled were described predominantly 
                          as volcanic and/or gneissic in nature, with 
                          varying degrees of brecciation and hematisation 
                          noted in several samples. Two of the prospecting 
                          samples were described as strongly oxidised 
                          quartz vein samples with carbonate-sulphide 
                          veining throughout. 
 
                          All samples were sent for assay at an accredited 
                          ALS laboratory where they will undergo multi-element 
                          analysis including gold, utilising a large 
                          50-gram aliquot size intended to reduce 
                          any nugget effect present in any of the 
                          samples. Significant results will be announced 
                          to shareholders as and when received. 
 
                          Due to the permitting delays experienced 
                          on our Alamo Gold Project, Power Metal and 
                          the vendor, Frisco Gold Corporation, have 
                          agreed to an amendment to the original Mineral 
                          Lease and Option Agreement signed between 
                          the two companies. 
 
                          Under the original terms, a US$50,000 pre-production 
                          royalty payment ("PPR Payment") was due 
                          by 31 December 2021. Under the amended agreement, 
                          the PPR Payment has been deferred until 
                          14 days after the receipt of all analytical 
                          results from the 2021 test pitting programme, 
                          or 31 March 2022, whichever is earlier. 
 
                          The amendment will allow Power Metal to 
                          review all 2021 exploration data before 
                          making a decision on next steps with the 
                          project.

                          Work was undertaken to assemble detailed 
                          project information and to determine next 
                          steps for the newly acquired properties. 
 
                          Step one was the launch of Phase I surface 
                          rock sampling programmes at three properties, 
                          Tait Hill, Thibault Lake and Clearwater. 
 
                          The programme was successfully completed 
                          in November 2021 and 20 rock samples were 
                          collected for assay testing, with the results 
                          sent for rush assay testing. 
 
                          Assay results were received in December 
                          2021 demonstrating high grade uranium with 
                          the highest grade of 38,600ppm or 3.86%

                          The Company's move into the uranium exploration 
                          space has generated a lot of interest amongst 
                          shareholders. This is justifiable, as the 
                          staking undertaken in September through 
                          to November has created 7 exciting project 
                          packages surrounding the Athabasca basin. 
 
                          Those packages have attracted interest from 
                          multiple parties and we continue to review 
                          the forward pathway for our uranium business 
                          in which Power Metal has significant optionality. 
 
                          We continue to look for additional uranium 
                          opportunities in the Athabasca region and

     Authier North 
     Quebec, Canada        Inaugural exploration was launched at Authier 
       (Lithium)           North in September 2021 with a Phase I programme 
  POW earn-in to 100%      comprising prospecting, mapping and sampling. 
 
                           The programme was designed to test for the 
                           extensions of a lithium-bearing pegmatite 
                           dyke down dip to the north, and along strike 
                           to the east from the adjacent Authier Lithium 
                           Property. 
 
                           The Authier Lithium Property is owned by 
                           Sayona Mining Limited and is scheduled to 
                           go into production in 2023. 
 
                           A total of 12 rock samples and 193 B-horizon 
                           soil samples were collected from three grid

                           Northeast, and Southeast). 
 
                           Soil and rock samples were collected and 
                           sent for assay at Activation Laboratories 
                           Ltd., Ancaster, Ontario. Soil samples were

                           package including lithium, and select samples 
                           were further tested for rare-earth element

                           9.8ppm Li, with a standard deviation of 
                           4.0ppm Li. The three highest results returned 
                           were 27ppm Li, 29ppm Li, and 36ppm Li representing 
                           a 4, 4.5 and 6 standard deviation increase 
                           over the mean. 
 
                           The highest results were all located in 
                           the eastern part of the Authier North Project 
                           within the Northeast and Southeastern grids. 
 
                           The Company is considering additional infill 
                           soil sampling between the two grids, as

                          Company view: 
                          A significant claim footprint secured by 
                          joint venture partners has created a valuable

                          , representing a major achievement which 
                          has materially increased the value of the 
                          joint venture.

                          vehicle in London are in process, the proactive 
                          approach to exploration continues, with 
                          multiple gold exploration targets now subject

                          The pre-IPO financing for Golden Metal 
                          was conducted at a pre-money valuation of 
                          GBP3.25million. The intention is to secure 
                          an IPO listing at a premium to the pre-IPO 
                          valuation and launch Golden Metal with immediate 
                          high-impact exploration programmes planned 
                          across the portfolio. 
                          Power Metal considers the Golden Metal package 
                          to be a highly attractive listing vehicle, 
                          offering UK-based investors access to North 
                          American exploration focused on the world's

                          Mountain Project, which hosts a significant 
                          JORC compliant Mineral Resource which we 
                          believe will underpin a strong valuation 
                          for Golden Metal going forward. 
                          Golden Metal is a unique opportunity and 
                          the Company is looking forward to the planned 
                          listing and proactive exploration updates

                          The three projects include the Wallal Project, 
                          Braeside West Project and Ripon Hills Project. 
                          At the flagship Wallal Project, ongoing 
                          exploration work includes 2D seismic geophysics 
                          reprocessing and a passive seismic survey 
                          which is intended to help refine drill targeting 
                          within the Wallal Main licence area. 
                          Drill targets comprise magnetic bullseye

                          The pre-transaction value of Power Metal's 
                          interest in FDR UK was GBP2,500,000 and 
                          FDR UK is seeking a listing on the London 
                          capital markets. Preparatory steps are being 
                          taken for the listing, which is targeting 
                          Q2 2022, including the recruitment of a 
                          suitable board, senior management team and 
                          suite of advisors to assist with the listing 
                          process. 
                          Specifically in respect of the board Tristan

                          Director. 
                          Company view: 
                          It is apparent from shareholder communications 
                          with Power Metal that FDR UK will be of 
                          great interest going forward. The combination 
                          of the Wallal Project's exciting magnetic 
                          bullseye targets together with the uranium/REEs 
                          exploration opportunity at the Selta Project

New Opportunities

 
          Project                            Latest Position 
   Power Metal Resources     Power Metal as a business has an acquisitive 
            plc               mindset. However, the near-term focus will 
                              remain on the exploration of existing interests 
                              and the crystallisation of value through 
                              the potential listing of spin-out vehicles 
                              as previously announced. 
                              New acquisitions are likely to be restricted 
                              to additional projects to add into the FDR 
                              UK business in preparation for its planned 
                              IPO, new uranium opportunities and potentially 
                              additional gold/copper opportunities in 
                              North America or Australia. 
                              Should Power Metal encounter exceptional 
                              new opportunities outside the above areas 
                              it will consider further acquisitions but 
                              only on the right commercial terms. It should 
                              be noted that many of the Company's previous 
                              acquisitions have used Power Metal equity 
                              as a large portion of consideration. With 
                              the share price trading at a circa 55% discount 
                              to the high in January 2021, the Company 
                              is reluctant to utilise equity for acquisitions 
                              at this time and it makes commercial sense 
                              to limit any equity based acquisition approach 
                              at current share price levels.

                              many other exploration companies, is a portfolio 
                              of capitalised project acquisition and exploration 
                              costs for ongoing projects or loans to subsidiary

                              ("Project Assets"). 
                              As at 30/11/2021 the Project Asset value 
                              was GBP3,354,847 in the Company's internal

                              The Company's assets also include the planned 
                              spin out/disposal project vehicles ("Pre-IPO 
                              Assets") which includes:

                              is expected to add material value to the 
                              Company's balance sheet. 
                              As at 30/11/2021 the Pre-IPO Asset value 
                              was GBP3,709,777 in the Company's internal

                              does not include the valuation uplift from 
                              acquisition cost to pre-IPO value. 
                              Power Metal also holds listed investments 
                              including shares and warrants of currently

                              tradable and provide the Company with a 
                              source of cash if needed. 
                              As at 30/11/2021 the Listed Asset value 
                              was GBP1,079,128 in the Company's internal

                              In addition to the above the Company maintains 
                              material cash balances which includes GBP,

                              Assets"). 
                              As at 30/11/2021 the Cash Asset value was 
                              GBP1,962,561 in the Company's internal unaudited 
                              management accounts (including the November 
                              2021 financing, which was received in full 
                              in December 2021). 
                              Overall, as at 30/11/2021 including all 
                              categories listed above the total unaudited 
                              assets of the Company amounted to GBP10,106,313. 
                              Note: this asset figure does not include 
                              the uplift in value of Golden Metal Resources 
                              or First Development Resources to reflect 
                              the current pre-IPO valuations of both vehicles, 
                              with both vehicles included at acquisition 
                              cost only. 
                              Working Capital 
                              The Company considers Working Capital to 
                              be the money available to deploy on payment 
                              of corporate operational, notably exploration 
                              expenditure. It comprises cash held and 
                              listed investments only and at 30/11/2021 
                              as outlined above amounted to GBP3,041,689. 
                              As Working Capital management is vital, 
                              we monitor this on a weekly basis and as 
                              at 31/12/2021 this amounted to GBP2,907,686. 
                              This is a robust amount of cash and listed 
                              investments as the Company enters 2022. 
                              Future Financing Sources 
                              The Company has multiple sources of additional 
                              financing. 
                              As demonstrated in November 2021, traditional 
                              equity financing can be undertaken to raise 
                              additional sums where considered necessary. 
                              Furthermore, the Company has issued warrant 
                              instruments during financings and project 
                              acquisition transactions, some of which 
                              are currently in-the-money, but most are 
                              at higher prices to the current mid market 
                              share price. 
                              In addition, the Company has issued options 
                              to management, staff, advisors and consultants, 
                              as part of team incentivisation. 
                              Table 1 below provides a full breakdown 
                              of all warrants and options outstanding 
                              as at 31/12/2021. 
                              The warrants and options above, if exercised 
                              in full, will bring GBP8,406,213 additional 
                              cash into the Company, largely at exercise 
                              prices considerably higher than the current 
                              market share price (or GBP9,406,213 if Thor 
                              Mining plc exercise their 4p warrants within 
                              12 months and exercise replacement warrants 
                              at an exercise price of 8p). 
                              In addition to the above, the Company will 
                              benefit from the planned listing of four 
                              pre-IPO vehicles as outlined above which 
                              will, if successful and in line with expected 
                              valuations on listing, add considerably 
                              to overall Power Metal asset value. Subject 
                              to any applied lock-in on listing, the shares 
                              held on IPO will form part of listed asset 
                              investments and provide an additional pool 
                              of working capital to the Company. 
                              It is anticipated that further value generative 
                              events may occur including additional spin-outs 
                              into new listed vehicles and outright disposal 
                              of certain business interests. The level 
                              of such corporate activity is dependent 
                              on demand for new vehicles, predominantly 
                              in the London capital markets, and also 
                              the level of M&A activity in the junior 
                              resource sector. In the latter regard the 
                              Power Metal board, from acquisitive interest 
                              already demonstrated across the Company's 
                              portfolio, expect a heightened level of 
                              corporate activity in 2022.

 Audit and Compliance   Power Metal continues to work with One Advisory, 
                         its financial and compliance service partner, 
                         to liaise with auditors PKF, and the financial 
                         results for the year ended 30 September 
                         2021 are expected to be published in February 
                         2022. 
                         Power Metal continues to bolster its Environmental, 
                         Social and Governance initiatives and expects 
                         to publish further information in this regard 
                         in the coming quarter covering the various 
                         measures implemented. 
                         In 2020 the Company undertook a Finance, 
                         Administration and Compliance Protocols 
                         and Procedures Review to further improve 
                         its underlying Governance. This review is 
                         being updated currently to ensure all areas 
                         are fully updated with business developments. 
                         As part of this the Company has now completed 
                         detailed business process mapping across 
                         all key corporate activities. In addition, 
                         Power Metal has recruited a new Commercial 
                         Manager onto the team to prepare business 
                         organisational structure charts, detailed 
                         business process flows, a live corporate 
                         and licence database and a full business 
                         information managed database. 
                         These measures are considered necessary 
                         as the Company expands in size, scale and 
                         breadth of corporate and exploration activities.

NOTES TO EDITORS

Power Metal Resources plc (LON:POW) is an AIM listed metals exploration company which finances and manages global resource projects and is seeking large scale metal discoveries.

The Company has a principal focus on opportunities offering district scale potential across a global portfolio including precious, base and strategic metal exploration in North America, Africa and Australia.

Project interests range from early-stage greenfield exploration to later-stage prospects currently subject to drill programmes.

Power Metal will develop projects internally or through strategic joint ventures until a project becomes ready for disposal through outright sale or separate listing on a recognised stock exchange thereby crystallising the value generated from our internal exploration and development work.

Value generated through disposals will be deployed internally to drive the Company's growth or may be returned to shareholders through share buy backs, dividends or in-specie distributions of assets.
