The Company commissioned a National Instrument 43-101 technical report (“Report”) in respect of the Reitenbach Property as announced in March 2022:
Power Metal expects to release the findings from this report in the near term.

Selta Project, Northern Territory, Australia
The Selta Project (“Selta”) was acquired in November 2021 by Power Metal UK subsidiary First Development Resources Limited through the acquisition of Australian private holding company URE Metals Pty Limited.
In February 2022 an in-depth review (“Review”) of the rare-earth element and uranium potential at the Selta Project was undertaken:
The Review confirmed multiple uranium targets at Selta, further details of which were announced in March 2022 and may be viewed in the link below:
Further work is underway to evaluate the findings of the review and determine the next stages for uranium focused exploration.
Paul Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of Power Metal commented:
“This Agreement announced today securing Power Metal a pathway into Togolese uranium opportunities marks our first entry into African uranium exploration. We are already working with the Togo team in respect of sourcing new uranium opportunities and I expect to report back soon on developments there.
The Togo opportunity complements the Company’s existing uranium interests including the large 7 property portfolio in the Athabasca Basin area of Saskatchewan, Canada, and the Selta Project, forming part of planned listing vehicle First Development Resources Limited.
At Power Metal we see an opportunity to further build our uranium profile. This will be accomplished by undergoing exploration on our existing exploration portfolio, the acquisition of additional interests, as well as through investment holdings in new uranium focused entities that we can help to create.”
