Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note the announcement today from Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (“Macarthur”) that Macarthur Lithium Pty Ltd (“MLi”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Macarthur, has entered into an exclusive option agreement with Fe Limited (ASX: FEL) (“FEL”), for FEL to acquire an interest of up to 75% across 19 MLi tenements.

  • MLi has granted FEL a 45-day option to enable FEL to conduct due diligence and secure the required funding to proceed with exercising the option. The Company will pay a non-refundable option fee to MLi of AU$100,000 in cash (Option Fee).
  • Should FEL formally elect to exercise the option within the 45-day option period, AU$400,000 will be payable to MLi (Option Exercise Fee).
  • Upon payment of the Option Exercise Fee (Exercise Date), FEL will have the right to earn-in up to 75% interest in the Project.

MLi will act as JV manager and be paid a 10% project management fee (excluded from earn-in expenditure) and will be free carried until a pre-feasibility study is completed. FEL can withdraw from the earn-in at any time and without penalty.

Cadence holds approximately 10% 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.
