The following is a round-up of updates by London-listed companies, issued on Tuesday and not separately reported by Alliance News:

----------

Woodbois Ltd - Africa-focused forestry, timber and afforestation company - Reaches agreement with Sydbank under which the outstanding balance of around $2.8 million will be repaid by no later than December 29. Undertakes to repay around $145,000 on each of June 15 and June 30. A further $145,000 is to be paid in the middle of each subsequent month with any additional lump sums being paid to ensure repayment of the total outstanding balance and interest by the final repayment date. Existing security arrangements, per the original loan facility agreement, will remain in place until the line of credit is fully settled.

On April 9, Woodbois announced the unexpected termination of its $6.0 million line of credit with Sydbank and the subsequent offsetting by the bank of around $3.1 million of cash, being substantially all of the company’s cash balances.

Since the termination notice, Woodbois has had to operate with an emphasis on cash realisation and limiting new liabilities. States as of today, cash balance is around $0.4 million, working capital is estimated at $5.1 million and bank and other debt totalling $11.4 million. Continues to assess alternative funding sources and is also working on the potential deferment of around $1.5 million of debts, which fall due at the end of June.

African Pioneer PLC - Namibia-focused exploration and development company - Says the latest quarterly report from First Quantum Minerals Ltd has confirmed the presence of mineralisation with diagnostic regional geological and architectural similarities apparently consistent with Kamoa-Kakula deposit mineralisation located in the DRC.

Colin Bird, Executive Chair, said: ‘The discoveries made during the last quarter and the resulting report are ground-breaking for our partners and AFP shareholders.’

----------

Power Metal Resources PLC - London listed exploration company - Notes the announcement made by Golden Metal Resources PLC, in which Power Metal Resources has a 62% stake. Golden Metal Resources is a Nevada, US-focused tungsten, gold, copper, silver and zinc exploration company. Reports detailed analysis of the induced polarisation geophysics results over its wholly owned flagship Pilot Mountain Project. Highlights the presence of three significant undrilled exploration targets which are highly prospective for further tungsten, copper, silver and zinc mineralisation. Considers that Pilot Mountain hosts the largest known undeveloped tungsten resource in the US and these newly identified targets indicate the potential for a significantly greater in-ground resource than currently known marking a significant uplift in project potential. Explains any increase in potential mineralisation will further bolster the inherent value of the project and its attractiveness as a target for non-dilutive grant funding for exploration and development.
