Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) Joint Venture Partner FE Limited Expands Hillside Copper, Gold and Manganese Drilling Program at Hillside in the Pilbara.


Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note the announcement yesterday from Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) ("Macarthur") that its Joint Venture Partner Fe Limited ("FEL") has announced the company is fully funded for upcoming drilling at the Hillside Project in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia where high-grade copper and manganese results were returned in recent sampling, as reported by Macarthur on October 9, 2019.


Cadence Minerals Holding in Macarthur


Cadence holds approximately 9.8% of the issued equity interest in Macarthur, which is an Australian mining exploration company focused primarily on iron ore, nickel, lithium and gold in Western Australia. It also has a lithium project in Nevada, USA.




·      Fe Limited's (ASX: FEL) cash balance has been boosted by the September quarter iron ore royalty payment of $645,775 from mining conducted by Mineral Resources Ltd at the Deception Iron Ore Mine in WA.

·      The Q3 payment is 2.5 times the June quarter payment with further increased quarterly royalty payments expected as mining at Deception ramps-up.

·      This payment will allow FEL to ramp-up exploration at the Hillside earn-in project in WA's Pilbara region where recent sampling produced copper results of up to 18.8% as well as a surprising manganese oxide result of 59.4%.


Macarthur Minerals Executive Chairman Cameron McCall commented; "I am pleased to report that Fe Limited is expanding its drilling program at the Hillside Project in the Pilbara. FEL has raised over $1.2m since commencement of the Joint Venture which will be used to fund exploration and drilling activities across the tenements.  FEL has obtained exciting rock chip samples containing high grade copper, manganese and gold at the Hillside Project.  We look forward to reporting further positive results from the drilling program."

Cadence CEO Kiran Morzaria commented; "FEL's announcement yesterday will allow the company to ramp-up exploration activities at the Hillside Project and, following the assay results announced earlier this month, is both great news for Macarthur Minerals and for Cadence as a major shareholder in Macarthur. We look forward to further drilling results from the Hillside project."
