Power Metals Corp. (" Power Metals " or the " Company ") (TSXV: PWM) (FRANKFURT: OAA1) (OTCQB: PWRMF) has been advised that the Canadian Federal Government, by Order in Council, has ordered that Sinomine ( Hong Kong ) Rare Metals Resources Co. divest itself of its past and ongoing investments in the Company. Sinomine made an equity investment of $1.5 million CDN into Power Metals. The order was made on national security grounds by virtue of the strategic importance of the Company's Case Lake lithium, cesium and tantalum deposits and Sinomine's alleged relationship with the Government of the People's Republic of China . Sinomine has made an equity investment in the Company and is in process of negotiating an offtake agreement with regard to the Case Lake Project. The Company is reviewing the matter with legal counsel, Sinomine and the federal authorities with a view to advancing development of the Case Lake Project by whatever means necessary.

Johnathan More , Chairman & CEO of Power Metals states, "While we are surprised by Canada's stance towards Chinese investment into Canada's critical minerals industry, it clearly shows that they see the opportunity and assets of Power Metals as too valuable for such foreign investment.  Power Metals has made a substantial discovery of cesium, lithium and tantalum and this political gamesmanship demonstrates the extreme value of Power Metals assets. Sinomine will respond to the Canadian government shortly as they look at the appeal process.

Dr. Julie Selway , Power Metals' Vice President of Exploration previously stated in the press release dated October 13 th , 2022, "The drill core with 24.07 % Cs 2 O over 1.0 m is the highest and most impressive cesium assay in properties that I have worked on in my career. One of Power Metals' goals for the summer 2022 drill program was to follow up on the 14.70 % Cs 2 O over 1.0 m in drill hole PWM-18-126 from 2018. The 2022 drilling cesium results have surpassed the 2018 results and has further confirmed the economic value of the West Joe Dyke."

Drilling and exploration activities will continue as usual as we strive to increase the value of the property.

Iola Hughes: EV Market Has Strong Upside Despite 2022 Headwinds

Iola Hughes: EV Market Has Strong Upside Despite 2022

The electric vehicle (EV) industry has grown significantly in the past two years, driven primarily by China, but with regions such as Europe also showing strength.

Mass adoption of EVs is still dependent on reaching price parity with internal combustion engine vehicles, but as governments push to move away from fossil fuels, support for the industry is increasing.

This year has been interesting for the EV market, Iola Hughes of Rho Motion said in conversation with the Investing News Network (INN) at this year’s Benchmark Week. Headwinds for the sector came after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and China’s lockdowns in the first few months of the year, but improvements soon followed.
