Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) Acquires New Pilbara Tenement With Historic Base Metal Mineralization Identified.

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals ("Macarthur", TSX-V: MMS) has applied for an Exploration Licence in close proximity to Macarthur's Tambourah Lithium Project in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia. A review of historical data indicates the area is prospective for nickel-copper-cobalt and platinum group element ("PGE") mineralization.



·      The newly acquired tenement is ideally situated adjacent to the Company's Exploration Licences E45/4848 and E45/4702, which comprise the Tambourah Lithium Project.

·      The tenement is also in close proximity to West Wits Mining Limited's Tambina Creek Gold Project where previous exploration reported rock chip samples up to 4.7g/t Au and costean trenching returning 5.7 g/t Au over four meters.

·      The tenement also lies approximately 45 km South of Venturex Resources Limited's Sulphur Springs and Kangaroo Caves Cu-Zn volcanogenic massive sulphide Deposits.

·      The tenement sits in the East Pilbara Granite-Greenstone Terrain of the Pilbara Craton, a setting that has been defined prospective for VMS style mineralization.

·      The Company recently completed a review of historical data, including a geochemical soil and rock chip sampling program undertaken between 2007 and 2008 Haddington Resources Limited and considers the area to be prospective for nickel-copper-cobalt and PGE minerals.

·      The collective geochem anomalies and drill hole results provide several targets worthy of further exploration. Further close spaced geochemical sampling is required along these structures and will be undertaken on grant of the Exploration Licence.

Cadence holds approximately 12% of the issued equity interest in Macarthur, which is an Australian mining exploration company focused primarily on lithium, iron ore and gold in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. It also has the lithium project in Nevada, USA.

Cadence Minerals CEO Kiran Morzaria commented: "Macarthur Minerals already has a sizeable land package of 1,328 km2 in the Pilbara area which is highly prospective for conventional gold and conglomerate gold deposits. The company's Tambourah Lithium Project has already yielded promising rock chip results up to 1.47% LiO2, so the addition of a new tenement with a solid exploration pedigree in our view further enhances the Macarthur Minerals investment case. We look forward to further updates from Cameron McCall and the Macarthur Minerals team."
