Power Metal (AIM:POW) Golden Metal Resources – Operational Update

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 Golden Metal Resources PLC (“Golden Metal”), the Company’s 83.13% owned subsidiary, which is planning to list on the London capital markets.

Golden Metal holds a 100% interest in three projects (Pilot Mountain, Garfield and Stonewall) and a right to earn-in to a 100% interest in one further project (Golconda). All projects are situated in Nevada USA, ranked number 3 in the Fraser Institute Survey of Mining Companies 2021 – Investment Attractiveness Index.1

The most recent update from Golden Metal was released on 19 July 2022 and can be found at the link below:


Subsequent to the above release, follow up operational updates are highlighted below.


– The field-based component of the 3D induced polarisation (“IP”) geophysics survey over Golden Metal’s 100% owned flagship Pilot Mountain project is now complete, representing a significant milestone. The IP survey enables the sub-surface geological structures to be correlated with known deposits on the property, and for potential new areas of mineralisation to be more clearly identified. As a result, the results, once available, will enable a more detailed assessment of high priority targets, with follow up drilling planned to commence following the planned listing in 2022 where additional tungsten (W), copper (Cu), silver (Ag) and zinc (Zn) resources are being targeted.

– High-resolution soil geochemical survey over the Garfield project is now complete during which a total of 453 soil samples were collected. All samples have been delivered to ALS Ltd’s assay laboratory located in Reno, Nevada, where they are currently undergoing multi-element analysis. Once available, the soil survey assay results will help Golden Metal in targeting additional copper-gold-silver mineralisation building on the significant evidence of skarn-type mineralisation established to date.

– A long form technical video was completed covering the work completed at Garfield and has been published on Golden Metal’s website accessible through (see ‘Investor Technical Guide: Garfield Project’): https://www.goldenmetalresources.com/investors/media/

– Both the Pilot Mountain and Garfield work programmes were completed on time and on budget, highlighting Golden Metal’s ability to successfully operate in country.

Oliver Friesen, Chief Executive Officer of Golden Metal Resources PLC, commented:

“I am very pleased to have completed the 3D IP survey over our 100% owned flagship Pilot Mountain Project – which hosts one of the largest undeveloped tungsten resources in the United States of America.

As soon as I was introduced to Pilot Mountain, I was convinced that this important survey could be the key to unlocking additional W-Cu-Ag and Zn prospective targets. Between the four main deposit areas on the Property, despite several historical reports highlighting the areas prospectivity, very little historical work has been carried out. This is mainly because of the thin post-mineral sedimentary sand cover that blankets this area.

With the geophysics work now completed, we will be the first company to image under this sand cover, looking for additional targets to explore during our planned 2022 drilling programme.

I encourage investors to keep an eye on Golden Metal Resources over the coming weeks and months as we announce further corporate and technical updates.”

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

“The strategic importance of Pilot Mountain is clear, offering an advanced asset for expeditious development.

So far, we have articulated the potential, through diligent exploration, of expanding our knowledge of the Pilot Mountain geology and seeking an increase in scale of the deposit there.

Of particular importance given the demand for homeland security of critical minerals at this time, is effective marketing and communications in-country with parties interested and able to engage with the project, something which is very much at the forefront of our thinking as we move forward.”
