Vancouver, British Columbia – Power One Resources Corp. (TSXV:PWRO) (the “Company”) is pleased to
announce that its common shares will begin trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV) on January 18, 2024, under the trading symbol “PWRO”.
Business of the Company
The Company’s only business is the exploration of its two mineral properties – the Pecors Property and the Wicheeda North Property.
The Pecors Property is located about 115 km west of Sudbury and about 16 km east of Elliot Lake, Ontario. It is prospective for copper, nickel and platinum group element (PGE) mineralization. This property was originally explored for uranium, but recent work resulted in the search for base metals instead. The technical report received by the Company recommends a $520,000 program of data analysis and a 2,000 metre drill program . The work program commenced in December 2023 and will take until late-January 2024 to complete the field work and another 10 weeks to complete the analysis. As of the date hereof, the access roads to the drill sites have been substantially completed although no drill holes have been started, such that there are no assays or other results from the work done to date. There are no known mineral resources or reserves within the Pecors Property, and the exploration program is a preliminary step in the search for commercial quantities of mineralization. A copy of the Pecors technical report is available on SEDAR+ under the Company’s profile.
The Wicheeda North Property is located about 80 km due north of the city of Prince George and 60 km east of the community of Bear Lake, British Columbia. It is prospective for rare earth element (REE) mineralization. The exploration history of the Wicheeda North Property is limited to an airborne geophysical survey that covered the northeast half of the property and grid-based soil geochemical sampling in the east and northeast parts of the property. The technical report received by the Company recommends a $120,505 program of soil geochemical sampling and an airborne electromagnetic geophysical survey. Completion of the work program is conditional upon the Company raising
sufficient funds, and there is no assurance the Company will be successful in that regard. A copy of the Wicheeda North technical report is available on SEDAR+ under the Company’s profile.
The Company has approximately $632,485 of funds available, which it intends to use toward finishing the recommended work program on the Pecors Property ($205,000, as $315,000 has been paid to date), the remaining costs of listing on the TSXV, and for general and administrative costs.
The Company has a total of 33,218,597 shares, 13,983,846 warrants, and 1,900,000 options outstanding. A total of 8,507,000 shares are subject to escrow restrictions, whereby 10% will be released upon the commencement of trading, with an additional 15% every six months thereafter over 36 months.
