Power Metals Corp. (" Power Metals " or the " Company ") (TSXV: PWM) (FSE: OAA1) (OTCQB: PWRMF) is pleased to provide an update on our recently commenced drill program at the Company's 100% owned Case Lake Property.  The Company has completed an initial 8 drill holes on the Case Lake lithium property and has intersected substantial spodumene (lithium ore mineral) mineralization in every hole. A total of 4 drill holes (PWM-22-128 to 131) were completed for a total of 256 m on the West Joe Dyke. A total of 4 drill holes (PWM-22-132 to 135) were completed for a total of 435 m on the Main Dyke. The purpose of each drill hole was to infill on known mineralization to aid in a future resource estimate. These holes are part of Power Metals' fully-funded 5,000 meter 2022 summer drill program at Case Lake.

Johnathan More , Chairman & CEO of Power Metals, commented "Drilling continues at our Case Lake property as we eagerly await assay results for the initial 8 drill holes of the 2022 program.  Our visual interpretations of the drill core look spectacular and we will immediately release the assay results as soon as they are received.  We are extremely excited with the drilling to date as we will continue to expand our world-class lithium, cesium and tantalum discoveries on the West Joe and Main Dykes.  Additionally, we are continuing our geological mapping program of the additional 12 tonalite domes identified on the property."

West Joe Dyke drill holes PWM-22-128 to 131 are along section following the West Joe Dyke down dip. These holes intersected spodumene (Li) and lepidolite (Li):

  • 17.56- 24.40 m , interval 6.84 m , spodumene and lepidolite, PWM-22-128, spodumene is up to 9 x 3 cm in size (Figure 1)
  • 23.88- 25.84 m , interval 1.96 m , spodumene, PWM-22-129, spodumene is up to 5 x 2 cm in size
  • 36.51- 43.02 m , interval 6.51m , spodumene, PWM-22-129, including 0.7 m with about 20 volume % spodumene
  • 54.21- 57.18 m , interval 2.97 m , spodumene, PWM-22-130, including 0.29 m with about 25 volume % spodumene (Figure 2)
  • 61.83- 64.09 m , interval 2.26 m , spodumene, PWM-22-131, including 1.3 m with about 10-15 volume% spodumene

Main Dyke drill holes PWM-22-132 to135 intersected wide zones of spodumene pegmatite on the Main Dyke:

  • 2.05- 27.64 m , interval 25.59 m , PWM-22-132, including 9.5 m of 10 volume % spodumene
  • 37.42- 65.41 m , interval 27.99 m , PWM-22-133, including 6.6 m of 15 volume % spodumene
  • 19.65- 25.5 m , interval 5.85 m , PWM-22-134 with 15 volume % spodumene (Figure 3)

Drill holes PWM-22-132 to 135 also intersected the new spodumene dyke below the Main Dyke:

  • 56.02- 57.95 m , interval 1.93 m , PWM-22-132
  • 85.07- 85.8 m , interval 0.73 m , PWM-22-133
  • 47.14- 47.81 m , interval 0.67 m , PWM-22-135

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 will be 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.

Miner SQM's Profits Rise on Higher Lithium Prices

Soaring lithium prices supported earnings for Chile’s SQM (NYSE:SQM) during the second quarter, with the miner seeing its revenue increase more than 340 percent compared to the same period the previous year.

The top lithium producer saw its lithium sales revenue rise more than 1,000 percent year-on-year to hit US$1.84 billion. The company attributed the positive results to significantly higher prices during Q2.

“Our average prices surpassed US$54,000 per metric ton and our production volumes have grown in such a way that our exports from Chile during the second quarter reached record volumes, signaling that sales volumes in the upcoming quarters will continue to increase,” the company said in a statement.

Building Lithium Supply Chains: What Can the West Learn from Asia?

The green energy transition is well underway, with governments around the world stepping up their efforts to reduce carbon emissions and move away from fossil fuels.

Moves from the US Biden administration have seen millions of dollars committed to securing supply of key raw materials and strengthening its domestic supply chain. Europe is not far behind, with its own plans and investments also moving ahead.

As the urgency for reaching climate change goals increases, the West has been waking up to the dependence it has on Asia for its critical minerals supply chains and as a result the lack of control to meet its ambitious electrification objectives.
