Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note an update today from Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (“Macarthur”) on the progress of its infill drilling program of the Moonshine Magnetite deposit at its Lake Giles Iron Project in Western Australia.
Moonshine Magnetite Infill Drilling Program
The diamond and reverse circulation (RC) drilling program commenced in August in the central region of the Moonshine deposit.
The infill drilling program has been designed at closer drill hole spacing to upgrade the resource classification for some of the Moonshine deposit. The drilling program includes a planned total of 21 RC holes and 9 diamond holes for total drilling of 5,190 m.
The drilling program has been designed with the goal of upgrading the resource classification to include Indicated and Measured Mineral Resources. The updated mineral resource will underpin the Bankable Feasibility Study to be completed for the Lake Giles Iron Project.
The first batch of drill samples are being prepared for dispatch to the laboratory.
- Diamond drill hole LGDD_066 has intersected the Banded Iron Formation (“BIF”) unit from a down hole depth of 12.6 m and includes a section of 81.1 metres from 49.9m with strong visual magnetite content.
- Diamond drill hole LGDD_067 has intersected BIF from a down hole depth pf 68.5m with strong magnetite content through to current depth at 136m. Drilling is continuing to a planned depth of 240m.
- A third diamond hole has been pre-collared to 60m with the RC rig with diamond drilling scheduled to commence today.
- Reverse Circulation Drilling of hole LGRC_2146 has successfully intersected the western footwall contact of the BIF. Hole LGRC_2147 has intersected strong magnetite BIF from the eastern contact at 89m through to 203m and lower grade magnetite from 203m through to the western footwall contact at 274m downhole depth.
