Haneti Polymetallic Project - Commercial Update

Power Metal Resources plc (LON:POW) the AIM listed metals exploration and development company is pleased to provide an update in respect of commercial discussions relating to the Haneti polymetallic project (the 'Project').


On 15 March 2019 POW announced an Investment and Option Agreement whereby POW could acquire up to a 35% interest in the Project.  This announcement may be viewed through the following link:




After due diligence POW duly acquired a 25% interest in the Project on 15 May 2019 and held an option to acquire a further 10% through a payment to Katoro of £25,000 by 15 May 2020, with the option period subsequently extended to 31 May 2020 as announced on 15 May 2020. 


In recent months Katoro has received approaches with a view to earn-in, joint venture or other similar structures in respect of the Project, with a primary focus on the nickel sulphide discovery potential.


It is apparent that to crystallise the interest shown into a potential commercial transaction, it is preferable, and possibly a requirement, for Katoro and POW to restructure ownership of the Project.


Katoro and POW will therefore continue to monitor the development of any potential commercial transaction(s) before any final agreement is agreed upon.  In lieu of this, POW's option to increase its holding in the Project has been extended to 31 August 2020. This will allow both parties the benefit of further discussions and to carefully consider all available options based on additional information.



Paul Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of Power Metal Resources commented: "The Haneti Project is a significant opportunity, and it is important to structure ownership in a way that optimises the commercial pathway for the Project. I look forward to providing a further update to the market in due course."
