Update on Austrian Leogang Cobalt-Nickel Sulphide Project

Cadence Minerals Plc (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) reports that Australian listed Clancy Exploration Limited ("Clancy" ASX: CLY), has provided an update on its exploration licence at ground tenures at the Leogang Cobalt-Nickel Sulphide Project in Austria (the "Leogang Project").

As previously announced, Clancy's investigations into its tenure (announced 5 September 2017) determined that there were 28 overlapping licences out of Clancy's 200 licences that were preceding priority claimants ("Preceding Claims"). These Preceding Claims cover a total area of approximately 12km2 and included the historical Nockelberg and Leogang mines. Clancy continues to have priority over the balance of the project area, being 172 licences covering approximately 68km2  ("Remaining Licenses").

 

Prior to the investigations, Cadence acquired a 10% interest (refer to ASX release dated 3 July 2017) in all 200 licences held by Clancy, and the parties entered into a joint venture. Cadence was subsequently made aware of the licensing situation and we agreed with Clancy to continue to evaluate the Remaining Licenses, in which Cadence holds 10%.

 

Furthermore. the board of Clancy, in discussions with Cadence, have considered it appropriate to issue Cadence 140,000,000 fully paid ordinary shares at a deemed price of $0.003 ("Clancy Shares") as compensation for the discovery of third party priority over the 28 overlapping licenses (including the historical Nockelberg and Leogang mines).

 

Once these Clancy shares are issued, Cadence will own approximately 4 % of Clancy.

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. With over £20 million vested in key assets globally, Cadence is helping us reach tomorrow, today.

 

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.
