What does Power Minerals Limited (PNN) do?
Power Minerals Limited (PNN, formerly Pepinnini Minerals Limited) is an exploration company primarily focused on the discovery and development of lithium, copper, nickel, cobalt, gold, kaolin and halloysite deposits in Australia and Argentina.
The company is currently running four major projects:
Salta Lithium-Brine Project — Located in the Salta province, north-west Argentina, the overall project is part of the Lithium Triangle spanning across Argentina, Bolivia and Chile. The Lithium Triangle is the world’s leading lithium brine region. The project comprises five salt lakes within seven mining leases across an area of 147.07 square kilometres. Power Minerals holds a 100% interest in the project.
Musgrave Nickel-Copper-Cobalt Project — Comprised of two exploration licences and eight exploration licence applications, this project covers an area of 14,003 square kilometres within the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands, in the Musgrave Province of north-west South Australia.
Eyre Peninsula Kaolin-Halloysite Project — Located on the western side of the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia and strategically sitting adjacent to Andromeda Metals, the project consists of three exploration licences covering an area of 1,413 square kilometres. Approvals for drilling have been granted by the South Australia Department for Energy and Mining.
Santa Ines Copper-Gold Project — Located in North-Western Argentina, the project is strategically placed near BHP’s Escondida Copper-Gold Mine in Chile and 40 kilometres south-west of First Quantum’s Taca Taca Cu-Au-Mo Project. It consists of four mining leases covering 61.4 square kilometres.
In FY2020, the company changed its name from PepinNini Lithium to PepinNini Minerals to more accurately reflect the company’s multi-commodity focus. In June 2022, the company had another name change from PepinNini Minerals to Power Minerals, with no change to its ticker symbol.
