Reconnaissance rock-chip sampling at the Bonaventura Base-metals Project has confirmed high-grade zinc – plus lead, copper and silver – mineralisation at the Grainger Targetarea:
- 00% Zn, 1.44% Pb, 0.22% Cu and 19.5g/t Ag
- 30% Zn, 3.06% Pb, 0.45% Cu and 42.8g/t Ag
- 72% Zn, 2.17% Pb, 0.89% Cu and 30.6g/t Ag
- 17% Zn, 2.40% Pb, 0.91% Cu and 51.6g/t Ag
Reconnaissance sampling of waste dump material from historic artisanal mine workings at the Kohinoor Gold Target in the southeast of the Bonaventura Project tenure also confirmed high-grade gold mineralisation:
- 3 g/t Au
- 4 g/t Au
- 98 g/t Au
Re-processing and interpretation of existing geophysical data is underway.

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 GBP20 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.
