Power Metals Corp. (" Power Metals " or the " Company ")(TSX: PWM)(FRANKFURT: OAA1)(OTC: PWRMF) is pleased to announce, in collaboration with its largest shareholder Sinomine Resource Group (Sinomine), that it has decided to begin the process to acquire an Advanced Exploration Permit on its 100% owned Case Lake Property from Ontario's Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry. The Advanced Exploration requirements will be completed concurrently with the previously announced 5,000 meter upcoming drill program at Case Lake.

The Advanced Exploration Permit will be on the lithium (Li) – cesium (Cs)- tantalum ( Ta) West Joe , Main and North Dykes claims. The Permit will allow for excavation of surface material up to 10,000 tonnes to be used for as a bulk sample for metallurgical testing by Sinomine. The Advanced Exploration permitting process will include, but not be limited to, resource estimation, metallurgy testing, converting mining claims to leases, environmental studies, closure plan and Aboriginal Consultation.

Johnathan More , Chairman of Power Metals stated, "Power Metals and Sinomine are quickly advancing their relationship by mutually advancing our Case Lake property to production.  We have a huge advantage with Sinomine's ownership of the Tanco mine and processing facility which is strategically located in close proximity to our Case Lake deposit.  This will allow us to avoid huge capital costs by being able to potentially ship our rock to this facility instead of having to build one ourselves.  Our trifecta of cesium, lithium, and tantalum gives us a huge advantage to make this possible."

The upcoming 5,000 m drill program will comprise of approximately 50 shallow drill holes at Case Lake focusing on Power Metals Li-Cs-Ta West Joe Dyke. The objective of the drill program will be to expand the lithium-cesium-tantalum (Li-Cs-Ta) mineralization previously discovered at West Joe during their 2018 drill program. The West Joe Dyke will be tested along strike and down dip, as it is currently open in all directions. Spodumene (Li ore) and Ta-oxide minerals occur in outcrop on the surface of the West Joe Dyke and pollucite (Cs ore) was intersected in drill core. Li-Cs-Ta are all on Canada's and Ontario's Critical Minerals list.
