Mr. Evans' appointment follows Winsome's recent acquisition from Chinese company Sinomine Rare Metals Resources of 5.72% of Power Metals' shares, an equal number of Warrants priced at CAD$0.40 and the rights to offtake from its Case Lake cesium, lithium and tantalum project in Ontario .

Mr. Evans served as COO of Altura Mining, during development of its Pilgangoora mine in Western Australia , now owned by Pilbara Minerals and targeted to be one of the world's largest hard rock lithium mining operations.
At the same time, Power Metals and Winsome are setting out terms under which both companies can cooperate and combine assets to develop Case Lake and other projects into the future. These terms will be defined in a formal Collaboration Agreement, expected to be finalized in early 2023.
Chris Evans , Managing Director of Winsome Resources said, "I am honored to accept this role on the Board of Power Metals Corp. With Winsome recently becoming a substantial shareholder in Power Metals and acquiring the rights to offtake from the Case Lake project, this position is a natural fit and provides a great opportunity to assist and influence future directions. Both companies bring significant experience and opportunity to the table, and it is our intention to leverage the combined experience and assets as we move forward with development of Case Lake and other projects held by each company."
Johnathan More , Chairman & CEO of Power Metals commented, "We welcome Mr. Evans to the Board of Power Metals. He has done an amazing job to date with Winsome Resources and his track record is impeccable. Our next step is to form a formal Collaboration Agreement between our two companies. This will bring immense value to all of our shareholders as we will be able to leverage our combined assets and experience."
Concurrent with this appointment, Power Metals accepts the resignation of Zhiwei (Frank) Wang from the Board of Power Metals and wish him the best in his future endeavors.
