Power Metal (AIM:POW) Molopo Farms Complex, Botswana – Drilling Update

Drillhole Into Target Area T1-3 complete and Drillhole into T2-3 Progressing Well

Power Metal Resources PLC (LON:POW),  the London listed exploration company seeking large-scale metal discoveries across its global project portfolio announces a drilling update from the Molopo Farms Complex Project (“Molopo Farms” or the “Project”) targeting a large-scale nickel and platinum group element (“PGE”) discovery in southwestern Botswana.


A short presentation capturing developments at Molopo Farms and Power Metal’s 100% owned Tati gold Project is available on the Company’s website which is available through the following link:


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

“There is a strong momentum with our operations at Molopo Farms in Botswana where we have now commenced drilling at target area T2-3, a 12-kilometre-long magnetic body which represents another stand-out target we are eager to test.

From 5 drillholes across 4 target areas we have completed over 2,000m of diamond drilling, the drill core from which, is now the focus of multiple ongoing technical work streams including detailed core logging, downhole geophysics analysis and assay testing.

I look forward to reporting back to the market on developments at Molopo Farms as soon as practicable.”


§ Diamond drillhole DDH1-3A has been completed at target area T1-3 to a depth of 450m.

§ The inaugural drillhole (DDH2-3A) into target area T2-3A has progressed well to the current downhole depth of 129.4m (see Fig. 3). Drilling operations have now paused for the holiday season.

§ The electromagnetic (“EM”) geophysics conductor at target area T2-3A is located at approximately 400m downhole depth, so will be drill tested following the resumption of drilling operations expected early to mid-January 2023.


The following three figures outlining the Molopo Farms Complex Project Area, EM geophysics conductor targets, and details of the priority target area T2-3, may also be viewed on the Company’s website through the following link:
