Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (ASX: MIO) (the “Company” or “Macarthur”) and Timeless Capital Corp. (TSX-V: TLC.P) (“Timeless”) have entered into a letter of intent in respect of a proposed transaction (the “Transaction”), whereby Timeless shall acquire: (i) from Macarthur, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Macarthur Lithium Pty Ltd (“MLi”), a portfolio of Macarthur’s Pilbara, Western Australia tenements (“Pilbara Assets”) plus CAD$1.4 million in cash which Macarthur may choose to fund from the value derived from Macarthur’s shareholding in FE Limited (collectively, the “Macarthur Contribution”), and (ii) from Zanil Pty Ltd. (“Zanil”), an Australian company, a portfolio of gold copper tenements, located near Leonora in Western Australia (“Central Goldfield Assets”), in exchange for equity of Timeless (collectively, the “Transaction”) which assets were optioned by Macarthur to undertake due diligence under the recently announced agreement with Zanil.
It is anticipated that following completion of the Transaction:
- Macarthur will hold approximately 26.67% (11,428,571) of the outstanding Timeless Shares, issued in consideration of the Macarthur Contribution;
- Zanil will hold approximately 26.67% (11,428,571) of the outstanding Timeless Shares, issued in consideration for the Central Goldfield Assets; and
- the current Timeless shareholders will hold approximately 9.68% of the outstanding Timeless Shares.
Macarthur continues to primarily focus its resources on bringing its flagship Lake Giles Iron Project into production. The Timeless Transaction will allow value to be attributed to the non-iron Pilbara assets held by Macarthur, providing an opportunity to independently resource the exploration of the key areas without distracting time and resources away from the Lake Giles Iron Project development path. Following completion of the transaction, Macarthur will have a material shareholding in Timeless.
In connection with the Transaction, the Vendors shall complete a concurrent arm’s length financing for anticipated gross proceeds of a minimum of CAD$5 million (the “Concurrent Financing”). It is currently anticipated that the Concurrent Financing will result in the issuance of up to 14,285,714 shares at a price of CAD$0.35 per share. The Concurrent Financing will be comprised of a non-brokered portion, in the amount of CAD$2.5 million, comprised of lead orders from arm’s length parties introduced by the Vendors, and a brokered portion in the amount of CAD$2.5 million. All securities issued in connection with the Concurrent Financing will be exchanged for Timeless Shares pursuant to the Transaction. The proceeds of the Concurrent Financing will be used primarily for the purposes of supporting a targeted exploration programme of works across on the Pilbara Assets and the Central Goldfields Assets.
