Power Metals Intersects High-Grade Lithium, Cesium and Tantalum Mineralization at West Joe and Main Dykes, Case Lake

Power Metals Corp. (" Power Metals " or the " Company ") (TSXV: PWM) (FRANKFURT: OAA1) (OTCQB: PWRMF) is pleased to announce that drill holes have intersected high-grade Li, Cs and Ta (Lithium, Cesium and Tantalum) mineralization on the West Joe Dyke and Li and Ta mineralization on the Main Dyke, Case Lake property, Cochrane, Ontario .

Johnathan More , Chairman & CEO of Power Metals, commented "These fantastic drill results continue to impress our strong geological team. Drilling is ongoing and we are extremely excited for the next round of assays to be received from the lab."

The lithium mineralization is mainly spodumene, but also lepidolite at West Joe and is spodumene on the Main Dyke. Cesium mineralization is pollucite at West Joe and Ta mineralization is Ta-oxides at West Joe and Main Dykes.

Assay highlights on West Joe Dyke include (Table 1):

  • 1.11 % Li 2 O (lithium), 2.15 % Cs 2 O (cesium) and 365.46 ppm Ta (tantalum) over 6.84 m , PWM-22-128 (Figure 1)
  • 1.28 % Li 2 O, 6.53 % Cs 2 O and 324.0 ppm Ta over 1.0 m , PWM-22-128
  • 1.75 % Li 2 O, 0.06 % Cs 2 O and 221.0 ppm Ta over 1.0 m , PWM-22-129
  • 1.74 % Li 2 O, 0.01 % Cs 2 O, 197.0 ppm Ta over 0.79 m , PWM-22-130.

Drill holes are oriented perpendicular to the strike length of the pegmatite, so mineralization is close to true width.

Drill hole PWM-22-131 intersected biotite-rich metasedimentary host rock with elevated Li, Rb and Cs contents from 45.89- 47.30 m , 1.41m interval with 0.49 % Li2O, 3094 ppm Rb and 0.47 % Cs2O. This metasomatized host rock can be used as a pathfinder to locate blind pegmatites on the property.

Assay highlights on Main Dyke include (Table 2):

  • 1.71 % Li 2 O and 240.77 ppm Ta over 12.0 m , PWM-22-132 (Figure 2)
  • 1.20 % Li 2 O and 218.68 ppm Ta over 19.0 m , PWM-22-133.

Quality Control

The drill core was sampled so that 1 m of the Case Batholith tonalite host rock was sampled followed by 1 m long samples of the pegmatite dyke and 1 m of the Case Batholith. The sampling followed lithology boundaries so that only one lithology unit is within a sample, except for the Cochrane by Power Metals' geologists. The core was prepared at SGS Garson and analyzed at SGS Burnaby, British Columbia which has ISO 17025 certification. Every 20 samples included one external quartz blank, one external lithium standard and one core duplicate. The ore grade Li 2 O% was prepared by sodium peroxide fusion with analysis by ICP-OES with a detection limit of 0.002 % Li 2 O. The ore grade Cs 2 O% was prepared by acid digestion with analysis by AAS with a detection limit of 0.01 % Cs. A QA/QC review of the standards and blanks for this drill program indicate that they passed and the drill core assays are accurate and not contaminated.

5 Themes from Fastmarkets' 2024 Lithium Supply and Battery Raw Materials Event

Demand for lithium is expected to grow in the next 10 years as electric vehicle proliferation continues and the energy storage sector expands.

While experts are optimistic about the market’s medium- and long-term fundamentals, the current market oversupply and weak EV sales have weighed on prices over the last year.

Although prices have remained subdued through 2023 into 2024, investor interest in the battery metal market has grown, which was evident at Fastmarkets’ 2024 Lithium Supply and Battery Raw Materials conference.

The four-day event saw record attendance, with more than 1,100 attendants and 150 speakers gathering in Las Vegas to learn more about the trajectory of the lithium industry and other key battery raw materials.
