Further to the announcement made on the 29 March, Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to announce that DEV Mineração S.A’s (“DEV”) has completed the sale and shipment of the first Iron Ore from the Amapa Iron Ore Project since 2015.

Loading of the ship was completed on the 30 March and she left the port of Santana yesterday, en route to the buyer. Operations continue at DEV to prepare for the next shipment, which, with all things being equal, we expect to be in four to five weeks.

Other Updates

Cadence is also pleased to announce that it has made the final repayment due under the convertible loans announced in 2019. There are not further convertible loan notes outstanding.

Webinar

Cadence will be presenting an investor webinar hosted by Vox Markets.The webinar will take place on 7th April 2021 at 5.30pm. Please register your interest and submit questions at: https://voxmarkets.brand.live/c/vox-markets-webinar-wednesday-april-7th

Cadence CEO Kiran Morzaria commented, “We are delighted to announce that the first Amapa iron ore shipment has completed and is now en route.”

“On behalf of the Cadence board, I would like to put on record our gratitude and appreciation of the tireless efforts of DEV, IndoSino and the port contractors to ensure the shipment completed on time and on schedule. This landmark first shipment from Amapa would not have been possible without the unwavering support of the local authorities and the state & federal agencies who have not only assisted us in completing our first shipment but have also made a material difference in our efforts to create new  employment and economic activity in the region.” 

“I look forward to updating you further in the upcoming webinar after Easter.”

Cadence Interest In the Amapa Iron Project

In early September 2020, we announced that DEV Mineração S.A’s (“DEV”), Cadence and Indo Sino Pty Ltd (“the Investors”) agreed in principle to the settlement terms proposed by the secured bank creditors (“Bank Creditors”). Detailed discussions and drafting of the legal documents continue.

The execution of a settlement agreement with the Bank Creditors would represent the satisfaction of Cadence’s remaining major precondition to make its initial 20% investment in the Amapa Project. On completion of the conditions and the release of the Cadence escrow monies, Cadence will become a 20% shareholder in the Amapá Project via our joint venture company, which will own 99.9% of DEV.

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Inaugural Shipment of Iron Ore from the Amapa Iron Ore Project, Brazil

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to announce that DEV Mineração S.A’s (“DEV”) has commenced the shipment of the iron ore stockpiles from Santana, Amapa, Brazil. This shipment was approved via a court petition (details of which can be found here) and represents the first shipment of Iron Ore from this asset since its closure in 2015.

Highlights:

  • The first shipment of 45,000 tonnes of iron ore from the Amapa Iron Ore Project has commenced
  • The vessel is currently loading and is due to sail this week
  • Iron Ore 62% Fe, CFR China at US$167.05 per tonne (26/02/2021)
  • Approximately 1.39Mt of iron ore currently stockpiled as DEV’s wholly-owned port
  • Operations are continuing in Brazil to prepare for the next shipment

On 19 February 2021, the State of São Paulo Upper Court published the ruling allowing DEV to export sufficient iron ore to realise a US$10 million profit. Soon after, operations restarted moving material from DEV’s wholly-owned port to Docas De Santana some 2 km away.

DEV worked with Indo Sino Pty Ltd (“Indo Sino”) and Cadence to start operations, charter a vessel and carry out a competitive bid process for the cargo. The buyer is one of the world’s largest globally diversified natural resource companies and a major producer and marketer of commodities.

The first portion of the net revenues shall be used to pay historic small and employee creditors (~US$2.5 million), after which approximately US$ 6 million of the net revenues will be used to begin recommissioning studies on the Amapa Iron Ore Project. The remaining net revenues with be used to provide working capital for the operations and payment against the outstanding amount due to the Bank Creditors.

Operations continue at the port in preparation for the next shipment, and at the mine, security has been put in place and tailing dam maintenance has commenced.

Settlement of Bank Creditors

In early September 2020, we announced that DEV Mineração S.A’s (“DEV”), Cadence and Indo Sino Pty Ltd (“the Investors”) agreed in principle to the settlement terms proposed by the secured bank creditors (“Bank Creditors”). Detailed discussions and drafting of the legal documents continue. Positive steps have been made, and we believe all parties are aligned to complete and execute this agreement.

The execution of a settlement agreement with the Bank Creditors would represent the satisfaction of Cadence’s remaining major precondition to make its initial 20% investment in the Amapa Project. On completion of the conditions and the release of the Cadence escrow monies, Cadence will become a 20% shareholder in the Amapá Project via our joint venture company, which will own 99.9% of DEV.

Further announcements will be made concerning the Settlement once available.

Cadence Chairman Andrew Suckling commented; “I would once again like to put on record my sincere thanks and gratitude for the tireless efforts by Cadence management, IndoSino and DEV and advisors to bring the project to fruition. This inaugural iron ore shipment brings Amapá back to life, and in time we expect the mine and infrastructure to play a key role in helping to regenerate the regional economy, with all the employment, health and educational  benefits that will bring to this part of Brazil.”

“Despite the severe disruption created by COVID-19, management has remained focused on delivering the Amapa project as planned, all the while supported by a robust iron ore market that continues to justify the opportunity. Throughout, our primary concern has been to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all our staff, and we continue to maximise our efforts to ensure that employees, shareholders, contractors and their families continue to remain safe and secure through these challenging times.”

Cadence CEO Kiran Morzaria commented: “The first iron ore shipment from Amapa since 2015 and the resultant earnings represent a milestone of huge significance, both for our board and team who have worked tirelessly on bringing the project back to life and for the potential opportunities and benefits it will bring to the wider Amapa community.”

“As regards the secured bank creditors, we believe all parties are aligned to complete and execute the agreement which will see Cadence become a 20% shareholder in Amapa. I look forward to updating you on further developments as we move to complete the final stage of phase 1 of our Amapa investment plan.”

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (ASX: MIO) applies for additional tenements to support groundwater drilling campaign following completion of AEM Survey

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (ASX: MIO) (the “Company” or “Macarthur”) has made applications for tenements to support a groundwater search drilling programme following the successful completion by CGG Aviation of a Tempest airborne electromagnetic (AEM) survey of palaeovalleys adjacent to the Lake Giles Iron Project.

Highlights:

  • Macarthur continues to work with consulting hydrogeologists from Rockwater Pty Ltd (“Rockwater”) to define a source for process water requirements for magnetite processing at its Lake Giles Iron Project.
  • The Goldfields region contains numerous buried palaeovalleys that are likely to contain large volumes of groundwater. Such systems are currently exploited to supply process water demands for other Goldfields operations such as BHP’s Nickel West, Glencore’s Murrin Murrin Nickel Project and Gold Road’s Gruyere Gold Project.
  • The western limb of the Rebecca palaeovalley is located approximately 15 to 40 km east of the Lake Giles Iron Project and extends over 160 km North to South. This system is expected to contain abundant groundwater and is currently not exploited by other operators.
  • Macarthur recently completed an airborne AEM survey covering an area of 970 km2across the Rebecca palaeovalley. Preliminary results have been obtained with additional data processing ongoing to generate detailed information to map the palaeovalley geometry. Macarthur has now made applications for two groundwater search miscellaneous licences covering an area of 553 km2 across the prospective zone interpreted from the AEM survey. The Company is now preparing to undertake a groundwater exploration program targeting approximately 30 holes to obtain detailed information on water flows and water quality.
  • The Tempest AEM system is suited to conductivity mapping and has previously been utilised for mapping the location, extent and basement topography of palaeodrainage systems. Interpretation of the data collected will be undertaken by hydrogeologists from Rockwater, who are experts in the application of hydrogeological surveys, to define suitable drill targets for groundwater exploration

The full announcement can be viewed here: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/lake-giles-feasibility-study-macarthur-120000645.html

Commenting on the new appointments, Andrew Bruton, Chief Executive Officer of Macarthur

Minerals stated: Macarthur’s applications for two Miscellaneous Licences to support planned groundwater search activities is another important step forward for the Lake Giles Iron Project Feasibility Study. Following completion of analysis of the AEM survey data, Macarthur will work with consulting hydrologists from Rockwater, to identify suitable drill targets. 

The Company plans to commence groundwater exploration activities as soon as possible following the grant of the relevant tenements. This important programme of work will enable the Company to test the quantity and quality of water required to support its magnetite processing requirements, and it will form part of a much broader scope of site-based activities planned by the Company at Lake Giles this year.

Step by step, the Macarthur team is working through every aspect of the Lake Giles Iron Project to ensure the delivery of a robust Feasibility Study that has the potential to deliver a valuable and sustainable high-grade magnetite project for its shareholders. We look forward to providing many more updates on progress in the coming months.”

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (ASX: MIO) Lake Giles Feasibility Study Update.

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (ASX: MIO) (the “Company” or “Macarthur”) has announced that it engaged CGG Aviation to undertake a Tempest airborne electromagnetic (AEM) survey of palaeovalleys adjacent to the Lake Giles Iron Project to assist in the identification of groundwater drilling targets. CGG mobilised to site on 10 March 2021 and the aerial survey was completed over a period of 5 days.

Highlights:

  • Survey covered an extensive area of the Rebecca palaeovalley in close proximity to the Lake Giles Iron Project where a large quantity of groundwater is expected to occur.
  • Tempest AEM survey successfully employed in previous groundwater aquifer interpretations.
  • Drill targets will be defined from AEM surveys with subsequent drilling planned during the first part of this year to test quality and quantity of water to support magnetite processing requirements.

Macarthur has been working with consulting hydrogeologists from Rockwater Pty Ltd (“Rockwater”) to define a source for process water requirements for magnetite processing at its Lake Giles Iron Project.

The Goldfields region contains numerous buried palaeovalleys that are likely to contain large volumes of groundwater. Such systems are currently exploited to supply process water demands for other Goldfields operations such as BHP’s Nickel West, Glencore’s Murrin Murrin Nickel Project and Gold Road’s Gruyere Gold Project. The western limb of the Rebecca palaeovalley is located approximately 15 to 40 km east of the Lake Giles Iron Project and extends over 160 km North to South. This system is expected to contain abundant groundwater and is currently not exploited by other operators.

Macarthur engaged CGG Aviation to undertake an airborne AEM survey covering an area of 970 km2. Electromagnetic data was collected from the survey which was conducted over 1,322 line kilometres at a line spacing of 800m. The Tempest AEM system is suited to conductivity mapping and has previously been utilised for mapping the location, extent and basement topography of palaeodrainage systems. Interpretation of the data collected will be undertaken by hydrogeologists from Rockwater, who are experts in the application of hydrological surveys, to define suitable drill targets for groundwater exploration.

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (ASX: MIO) Enters Into Exclusive Agreement Over 10 Historic Prospecting and Mining Lease Tenements in the Central Goldfields of Western Australia

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (ASX: MIO) (the “Company” or “Macarthur”) has entered into an exclusive agreement with Zanil Pty Ltd (“Zanil”) to undertake due diligence over 10 tenements in and around the Leonora Goldfields region in Western Australia (“Agreement”). The Agreement is intended to strengthen the value proposition for a potential future repositioning of Macarthur’s non-iron ore assets.

Zanil is an Australian Proprietary company. Zanil either directly holds rights over, or is duly authorised on behalf of the relevant tenement holders, to enter into the Agreement with Macarthur in respect of the tenement areas:

Location of the properties under due diligence

The Leonora tenements are located in the Central Goldfields region of Western Australia, approximately 237 kilometres north of the city of Kalgoorlie within the proximity of active gold mines such as Agnew gold mine, Gwalia gold mine and Sunrise Dam gold mine.

The tenement portfolio consists of two mining leases and eight prospecting licences, with nine of the areas located on historic gold workings. The other tenement, Barlow’s Gully, has no established mine workings, but has been subject to surface gold extraction for over 100 years.

Key tenements are:

Garden Well was mined prior to 1987 and subsequently subject to periodic exploration campaigns.

Camel Lease historically produced 30.72kg (1083.61oz) of gold reported in WA Government Minedex database as:

— Sons of Australia – 26.3kg (927.70oz) Au from 691 tonnes @ 38.1g/t Au

— Camel Leases – 4.39kg (154.85oz) Au from 142 tonnes @ 30.9g/t Au

— Kruger and Viceroy – 3.95kg (139.33oz) Au @ 37 g/t Au

This reef has been mined to ~150 feet and historic reports suggest water ingress to be the main factor in mining being discontinued.

Great Northern tenement records production of 460 tonnes of ore mined for 10.1kg (356.26oz) Au @ 21.9 g/t Au.

Barlow’s Gully tenement has no historical mine workings but covers the Ursus fault structure. Outside the lease the Ursus fault structure hosts the Torian Sterling Well discovery (held by others), Cerebus-Eclipse 112,000oz Au resource (held by others), and the Centauri 83,100oz Au resource (held by others).

Coppermine is a tenement that has a historical mine working with notable surface copper expression.

The past production reported from these areas are not treated as current or historical Mineral Resources and further exploration is required to understand the potential for gold or copper mineralisation.

The location of the 10 tenements is shown on the below map that highlights the prospectivity of the Leonora Goldfields and indicates the potential of this tenement portfolio.

Alan Joe Phillips, Managing Director of Macarthur Minerals, commented: “The main focus for the Company is ‘first and foremost’ the ongoing development of the Lake Giles Iron Ore assets. The entering into of the due diligence agreement with Zanil is designed to all for an exclusive low-cost review of the Central Goldfields assets to augment the Company’s Pilbara gold, copper and lithium tenement portfolio.

If these tenements demonstrate value, Macarthur will consider spinning out this portfolio as part of a wider Pilbara/Central Goldfields transaction. The objective is to create value for shareholders by exploiting these tenements without detracting or distracting Macarthur from delivering on its substantial Lake Giles Iron Project.”
