22nd Sep 2022 22:14

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

----------

Petro Matad Ltd - Douglas, Isle of Man-based petroleum exploration company focused on Mongolia - Pretax loss for the first half of 2022 widens to USD1.6 million from USD1.0 million a year before. Employee benefit costs increase to USD874,000 from USD331,000 and other expenses grow to USD542,000 from USD486,000. Interest income multiplies to USD20,000 from USD1,000.

----------

Mobile Streams PLC - London-based mobile content provider - Signs a five-year contract to become the exclusive provider of all non-fungible token products for the Atlante Football club. NFTs are digital data stored in a blockchain. Says its share of the contract is roughly USD3.7 million. "The agreement also requires MOS to make a small initial cash payment to Atlante and if certain revenue targets in a year are met then a minimum revenue guarantee would exist for the next year," it adds.

----------

Atlantic Lithium Ltd - lithium asset developer and producer focused in West Africa - Completes the pre-feasibility study for the Ewoyaa Lithium project in Ghana. Records a maiden ore reserve of 18.9 megatons at 1.24%, demonstrating "sound" resource to reserve conversion.

----------

Great Western Mining Corp PLC - Nevada-focused gold, silver and copper project developer - Receives the final assay results from its recent drilling programme in the OMCO mine area of the Olympic Gold project in Nevada. Records gold over a 6.1 metre interval. This includes a best intercept of 8.1 grams per tonne over 1.5 metres.

"At Hole 15, drilled this summer, assay results tell us that we have now intercepted an extension of the OMCO vein itself, one of our key objectives, encountering vein material beyond the known limits of the old workings. Significantly, the trend is open to the southeast in unexplored acreage adjacent to the old workings. This is a very exciting result which will enable us to home in on the potential of the asset," Chair Brian Hall comments.

----------

Europa Oil & Gas Holdings PLC - oil and gas exploration, development, and production in UK, Ireland and Morocco - and i3 Energy PLC - oil and gas producer in the UK and Canada - Say the Serenity appraisal well on the UK Licence P.2358 was spudded.

----------

Getech Group PLC - Leeds, England-based green hydrogen company - Progresses with its Shoreham Port Green Energy Hub collaboration and extends exclusivity to 2027.

"Having completed an extensive engineering programme demonstrating commercial feasibility for the Green Energy Hub, Getech's exclusivity has now been extended by the Shoreham Port for a 5-year period, taking the project through development, to planned first green hydrogen production and beyond," the company says.

----------

Grafenia PLC - Manchester-based printing and software company - Agrees to acquire the entire issued share capital of Plymouth-based ecommerce software business Vertical Plus Ltd for GBP2.9 million in cash.

We have seen good demand in all areas during the first quarter of the current financial year, generating revenues and profitability in line with our expectations," says Chief Executive Officer Mark Milner.
