Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) identifies 18 High Priority Conductors for Gold at its Hillside Gold Project in Pilbara, Western Australia.

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals ("Macarthur", TSX-V: MMS) has identified 18 High Priority Conductors for Gold from its recent heliborne SkyTEM electromagnetic survey at the Hillside Gold Project in Pilbara, Western Australia. The discovery also includes two isolated discrete bedrock conductors. Macarthur has confirmed that all anomalies correlate with historic gold workings, surface copper and gold geochemical anomalies, magnetic anomalies or fault systems.

Highlights:

·      The heliborne SkyTEM survey was flown over 846 line-kilometres at 150m-line spacing covering a total area of 127 km2.  Data was captured across two disjunct areas; Area 1 in the north covering 76 km2 and Area 2 in the south covering 51 km2.

·      Data was processed by geophysicists at Newexco Services Pty Ltd. All observed anomalies were ranked against multiple criteria with a total of 18 anomalies considered to be high priority for follow-up in the field and consideration as a drill target.

·      Area 1 of the Aerial Electronic Magnetic ("AEM") results showed a series of stratigraphic conductors running north-south along the eastern flank of the survey area.

·      Area 2 shows a prominent stratigraphic conductor running along the western side of the survey area, and also contains two discrete conductors central to the survey area. These conductors are interpreted as being "isolated" and may be sources by confined bedrock conductors, which in some cases can be associated with massive sulphide accumulations such as gold and copper.

·      The two discrete conductors are considered likely to be associated with volcanogenic massive sulphide ("VMS") style copper-gold mineralization and hence are high priority targets. Previously recorded gold and copper anomalies and gold workings lie directly to the north and south along strike of these discrete anomalies. It is speculated that the two discrete conductors could host similar deposits at depth, VMS style.

The identified multiple outstanding anomalies identified will require follow-up exploration in the field. Geological mapping and geochemical sampling will be undertaken across these target areas, followed by drilling of selected targets.

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 a lithium project in Nevada, USA.

Cadence Minerals CEO Kiran Morzaria commented: "The dataset recorded from the SkyTEM electromagnetic survey proves that the right geology exists at the Hillside Gold Project, and adds further credence to the project economics for Cameron McCall and the Macarthur Minerals team."

"From the Cadence Minerals perspective, the update today significantly improves the investment case, and we look forward to the next phase of developments."

About Cadence Minerals:

Cadence is dedicated to smart investments for a greener world. The planet needs rechargeable batteries on a global scale - upcoming supersized passenger vehicles, lorries and buses - require lithium and other technology minerals to power their cells. Cadence is helping find these minerals in new places and extracting them in new ways, which will meet the demand of this burgeoning market.

 

Cadence invests across the globe, principally in lithium mining projects. Its primary strategy is taking significant economic stakes in upstream exploration and development assets within strategic metals. We identify assets that have strategic cost advantages that are not replicable, with the aim of achieving lower quartile production costs. The combination of this approach and seeking value opportunities allows us to identify projects capable of achieving high rates of return.

 

The Cadence board has a blend of mining, commodity investing, fund management and deal structuring knowledge and experience, that is supported by access to key marketing, political and industry contacts. These resources are leveraged not only in our investment decisions but also in continuing support of our investments, whether it be increasing market awareness of an asset, or advising on product mix or path to production. Cadence Mineral's goal is to assist management to rapidly develop the project up the value curve and deliver excellent returns on its investments.
