We are now marking the reinvigorated business with a new name which we feel reflects the new drive of the Company. With so much operational activity we are pushing hard towards our strategic objective of identifying large scale mineral deposits.

I would like to thank shareholders for their ongoing support and make the promise that we will continue to proactively drive Power Metal Resources forward in the pursuit of that first large scale discovery."
