Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Castillo Copper #CCZ Option to acquire Litchfield and Picasso Lithium Projects extended

Cadence Minerals (AIM/AQX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to announce that it has been advised by Castillo Copper (ASX/LON: CCZ) (“Castillo”) that it will be extending the 90-day option to acquire the Picasso and Litchfield Lithium Projects in prime regions in Western Australia (WA) and the Northern Territory (NT) respectively. This is primarily due to processing delays at the laboratories, due to the huge demand to process samples, which is extending timelines significantly.

For the full Castillo announcement, please click link here

Highlights

  • CCZ is extending the 90-day option period to acquire the Litchfield and Picasso Lithium Projects1:
    • More than 650 surface assays for the Litchfield Lithium Project1, which is contiguous to Core Lithium’s (ASX: CXO) strategic Finniss Lithium Project (JORC compliant ore reserves: 7.4Mt @ 1.3% Li2O)2, remain in process queues at the laboratory
    • Analysing and interpreting these assay results should potentially enable CCZ’s geology team to determine if lithium mineralisation is contiguous between the Lichfield and Finniss Lithium Projects1
  • Under the terms of the option agreement, the extension remains effective until 30 days after the receipt of the full suite of assay results.

Option Extended: 

Whilst reviewing available information for both projects has been positive, enhancing their potential to host lithium mineralisation, the assays are critical to enable due diligence to be finalised. This is especially the case for the Litchfield Lithium Project as it is contiguous to CXO’s Finniss Lithium Project which has JORC compliant ore reserves of 7.4Mt @ 1.3% Li2O2.

There are over 650 surface samples from four zones on the boundary with the Finniss Lithium Project. Analysing and interpreting these assay results should enable CCZ’s geology team to potentially determine if there is contiguous lithium mineralisation apparent and finalise due diligence.

Due to unprecedented demand, the timelines to process samples at laboratories have been extended significantly. CCZ’s geology team are in regular contact with the laboratories and hope to have clarity on when the assays will be received shortly. 

Simon Paull, Managing Director of Castillo Copper, commented“The Board has advised the Vendor Group that it is extending the option period to acquire the Litchfield and Picasso Lithium Projects due to ongoing delays in receiving key assay results for both projects. Encouragingly, however, the Board is pleased with the due process undertaken to date and believes both assets have considerable potential to host lithium mineralisation. The Board looks forward to receiving these assays and concluding due diligence shortly thereafter.”

Cadence CEO Kiran Morzaria added: “We are both pleased to extend Castillo’s option to acquire the Litchfield and Picasso Lithium projects and to note the findings of the Castillo team and their belief that both assets have considerable potential to host lithium mineralisation. We look forward to further progress.”

Overview

Lithium Technologies Pty Ltd (“LT”) and Lithium Supplies Pty Ltd (“LS”), in which Cadence owns a 29% shareholding, eachown 50% of Synergy Prospecting Pty Ltd (“Synergy”) and have granted , as announced on 29 September 2021, Castillo a 90-day option toacquire 100% of the outstanding shares of LT and LS and by implication 100% of Synergy.

During this 90-day period, Castillo will be conducting due diligence on all three entities to ensure the underlying assets are in good standing and there are no material adverse issues. Under the terms of the option agreement, Castillo can exercise its right to acquireLT, LS and Synergy at any time during the 90-day period.

Castillo Copper Limited is an Australian-based explorer primarily focused on copper across Australia and Zambia. The group is embarking on a strategic transformation to morph into a mid-tier copper group underpinned by its core projects:

  • A large footprint in the in the Mt Isa copper-belt district, north-west Queensland, which delivers significant exploration upside through having several high-grade targets and a sizeable untested anomaly within its boundaries in a copper-rich region.
  • Four high-quality prospective assets across Zambia’s copper-belt which is the second largest copper producer in Africa.
  • A large tenure footprint proximal to Broken Hill’s world-class deposit that is prospective for zinc-silver-lead-copper-gold.
  • Cangai Copper Mine in northern New South Wales, which is one of Australia’s highest grading historic copper mines.

The primary assets of Synergy, which are wholly-owned, comprise the Litchfield Lithium Project (EL31774) in NT and Picasso Lithium Project (E63/1888) in WA. In addition, Synergy has an application in NT – EL31828 – known as the Alcoota Lithium Project, which comprises ground proximal to Alice Springs. Castillo will need to undertake further geological due diligence on this application.

LT and LS also hold applications for six lithium properties in San Luis Province, Central Argentina. Again, Castillo will need toundertake further geological due diligence on these applications.

Further details on these assets and all the applications and permits are contained on our website here

Option terms & consideration

The terms of the 90-day option are as follows:

  • A$50,000 non-refundable deposit in cash on formally granting the option that will go directly to Synergy for working capital purposes.

Upon exercising the option within the 90-day period, the binding consideration terms are as follows:

  • A$1m script payment in CCZ shares will become payable to the Vendor Group based on the 14-day WVAP calculated from the date of which the option agreement is announced to the ASX. Note, the Vendor Group will be subject to a 6-month voluntary escrow period for 50% of the shares and 12-months for the 50% balance from the date of settlement. In addition, both parties agree to sign off on a binding term sheet.

Incremental consideration terms are applicable if the following milestones are achieved:

  • A$1m script payment in CCZ’s shares to the Vendor Group based on the 14-day WVAP if two drill-holes produce assayed intercepts greater or equal to a true width of at least 10m @ 1.3% Li2O.Note, the two holes will be at least 100m apart, but not greater than 200m.
  • A$1m script payment in CCZ’s shares to the Vendor Group based on the 14-day WVAP if a JORC compliant total inferred resource of at least 7Mt @ 1.3% Li2O is modelled by SRK Consulting.
  • In the event of commercial mining operations commencing a 2% NSR will be payable to the nominees of the facilitator.

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Castillo Copper #CCZ field trip to the Picasso Lithium Project identifies circa 10km zone of pegmatites.

Further to the announcement of 27 October 2021, Cadence Minerals (AIM/AQX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to announce that Castillo Copper (ASX/LON: CCZ) (“Castillo”) has provided an update on the Picasso Lithium Project following the visit of its geology team who mapped and collected samples from the high-density corridor.

For the full Castillo announcement, please click link here.

Highlights

  • A circa 10km zone of pegmatite occurrences was confirmed in the north-eastern part of the tenure, which significantly exceeds government mapping; and
  • The observed pegmatites are potentially related to lithium mineralisation which enhances prospectivity of the tenure’s north-eastern quadrant
  • Due diligence for the Litchfield Lithium Project is progressing with the laboratory expected to return assays within 2-3 weeks

Field Trip Findings: 

Castillo’s geology team undertook considerable mapping across the Picasso Lithium Project, though much of the time was focused on the tenure’s north-east quadrant where the high-density pegmatite corridor is located. Encouragingly, a circa 10km zone of pegmatite occurrences was confirmed in the tenure’s north-east quadrant which is the best exposed part of the Picasso Lithium Project. Notably, the pegmatites potentially host lithium mineralisation though this is subject to further investigation.  There are several areas of outcropping basement where granite is the dominant rock type. Interestingly, there is potential to discover further pegmatites across the tenure as there is significant shallow sand cover. 

Simon Paull, Managing Director of Castillo Copper, commented“The geology team’s visit to the Picasso Lithium Project delivered encouraging news, confirming that a 10km zone of pegmatites is apparent in the tenure’s north-east quadrant. The Board’s preliminary conclusion, based on due diligence undertaken to date, is the Picasso Lithium Project is prospective for lithium mineralisation and delivers significant incremental exploration potential.”

Cadence CEO Kiran Morzaria added: “We are pleased to note the progress and initial conclusions announced today by Castillo following the field trip work undertaken at the Picasso Project. We look forward to further progress.”

Cadence Minerals #KDNC Castillo Copper #CCZ to undertake comprehensive site visit to test all known pegmatites at Picasso Lithium Project

Further to the announcements of 29 September 2021, 7 October 2021 and 20 October 2021 Cadence Minerals (AIM/AQX: KDNC;OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to announce that the Castillo Copper (ASX/LON: CCZ) (“Castillo”) geology team will undertake a field trip to the Picasso Lithium Project, near Norseman in Western Australia.

For the full Castillo announcement, please link here

This is a lithium rich region, as the Mt Marion and Bald Hill Mines are located within 120km to the north-west of the tenure. Moreover, the Picasso Lithium Project is proximal to LTR’s Buldania Project which has a JORC compliant resource at 14.9Mt @ 0.97% Li2O2.

Highlights

  • Geology team will visit the Picasso Lithium Project shortly to gather more geological evidence – over a wide area – to verify if known / newly discovered pegmatites host lithium mineralisation
  • The focus area is the high-density corridor that hosts most of the 69 government mapped pegmatites on the eastern boundary, which is coincident to historical lithium occurrences at surface, coupled with selected outcropping targets seen elsewhere across the tenure1
  • The scope for the field trip is comprehensive and includes undertaking a drone survey to identify new granite / pegmatites targets; visit and collect samples from prospective zones; determine potential for lithium mineralisation; and update geological maps
  • Once complete, the team should have ample evidence to finalise the due diligence as significant historical data has already been reviewed, while more than 30 rock-chip samples1are due to be received in coming weeks
  • The Picasso Lithium Project is proximal to Liontown Resources’ (ASX: LTR) Buldania Project2and is mostly situated on crown land, which makes access a relatively straight forward process

Castillo’s Managing Director Simon Paull commented: “With the global lithium market showing continued strength, the Board has decided to send a team to site to collect more data points to advance the case for the Picasso Lithium Project. Whilst there is compelling historical evidence already and surface assays pending, the Board is keen to fully map and test all potential targets for lithium mineralisation within the tenure to hasten closing out due diligence.”

Cadence CEO Kiran Morzaria added: “Further to the progress made by Castillo in regard to the due diligience at Litchfield, we are pleased that Castillo have also committed to send a geology team to fully assess the potential at the Picasso Lithium Project. We look forward to further progress.”

Field Trip – Picasso Lithium Project

Castillo’s geology team will visit the Picasso Lithium Project shortly to collect more evidence to ascertain if known and newly discovered pegmatites host lithium mineralisation. The main focus zone is on the eastern boundary which comprises the high-density, government mapped, pegmatite corridor that is coincident with known lithium surface occurrences.

In addition, the team expect to survey pegmatite outcropping along the western boundary which is more wide-spread and scattered. Overall, according to government mapped data, there are 69 known pegmatites within the tenure1.

Scope

The geology team have been set a broad scope to collect as much incremental evidence as feasible during the field trip to determine the extent lithium mineralisation is apparent within pegmatites across the tenure. The key tasks comprise:

  • Conducting a drone survey across a significant area of the tenure;
  • Identify new granite / pegmatites from the drone survey and note dimensions;
  • Visit newly identified granite / pegmatite locations, conduct geological mapping and identify underlying mineralisation; and
  • Collect as many rock-chip samples as possible from newly identified pegmatites >1m wide and record XRF readings, if any.

Once this exercise is complete, the geology team should have sufficient evidence to finalise the due diligence. To date, significant historical data and geological reports have already been reviewed, while more than 30 rock-chips samples1 are due back from the laboratory in coming weeks.

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Comprehensive surface sampling campaign undertaken by Castillo Copper (ASX/LON: CCZ) at the Litchfield Lithium Project.

Further to the announcements of 29 September 2021 and 7 October 2021, Cadence Minerals (AIM/AQX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) ispleased to announce that a comprehensive surface sampling campaign has been undertaken by Castillo Copper (ASX/LON: CCZ)(“Castillo”) at the Litchfield Lithium Project in Australia’s Northern Territory. Castillo is the only third-party to date which has reviewed extensive site visit reports on the Litchfield Lithium Project that were arranged by Cadence’s geology consultant.

For the full Castillo announcement, please click link here.

The reports have highlighted four target zones where comprehensive surface sampling was undertaken, primarily along the western boundary which is contiguous to Core Lithium’s (“CXO”) (ASX: CXO) Finniss Lithium Project1 and coincident with government mapped pegmatite occurrences2.

Due diligence 

Reviewing historical data, as well as the extensive site visit reports, has provided considerable insight into the Litchfield Lithium Project’s exploration potential. With satellite imagery3 already confirming there is comparable geology between the Finniss and Litchfield Lithium Projects, assay results for 657 surface samples are likely to have a key bearing on the due diligence process, especially if the lithium mineralisation proves to be contiguous.  

Castillo’s Managing Director Simon Paull commented: The depth of the surface sampling programme conducted by the Vendor Group’s geology consultant is impressive, especially as it covers our main area of interest within the tenure. Favourable assay results should make the case for the Litchfield Lithium Project significantly more compelling and hasten our due diligence efforts.”

Cadence CEO Kiran Morzaria added: “We are pleased to note the progress announced today by Castillo as it advances its due diligence programme. The data review undertaken once again bears out the initial findings announced by Cadence to the market on March 4th 2019. We look forward to the assay results.”

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Castillo Copper (ASX/LON: #CCZ) Identifies Significant pegmatite outcropping along Litchfield Lithium Project’s western boundary

Further to the announcement of 29 September 2021, Cadence Minerals (AIM/AQX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to announce that initial due diligence undertaken by Castillo Copper(ASX/LON: CCZ) (“Castillo”) on the Litchfield Lithium Project in Australia’s Northern Territory has highlighted significant pegmatite outcropping along the north-west boundary. This follows the Castillo announcement on Monday October 4th 2021, that preliminary due diligence on the Picasso Lithium Project, near Norseman in Western Australia, has verified multiple lithium surface occurrences across the tenure that align with pegmatite outcropping.

For full release of the Castillo announcement, please see here

Highlights:

 

  • Follow up site visit to the Litchfield Lithium Project in the Northern Territory highlighted significant pegmatite outcropping along the western boundary
  • This is contiguous to Core Lithium’s (“CXO”) (ASX: CXO) Finnis Lithium Project1which has JORC compliant ore reserves (7.4Mt @ 1.3% Li2O) 1
  • With satellite imagery2verifying the geology in the Litchfield Lithium Project (NW quadrant) is comparable to CXO’s ground, CCZ is awaiting assay results on 657 surface samples (taken along the NW boundary) to determine the potential for contiguous mineralisation:
  • Encouragingly, the site-visit geological reports noted the areas sampled mostly comprised metamorphic rocks linked to the Burrell Creek formation – a host rock for the regional occurrences of pegmatites.

As announced on September 29th 2021, satellite imagery has verified the geology along the Litchfield Lithium Project’s north-west boundary is comparable to CXO’s ground. Cadence’s geological consultant conducted intensive surface sampling across four target areas within the NW quadrant, taking 657 samples to determine the potential for contiguous mineralisation. The sampled areas mostly comprised metamorphic rocks linked to the Burrell Creek formation – a host rock for the regional occurrences of pegmatites. The samples are at the laboratory undergoing further analysis, with results expected in the coming weeks. 

Castillo’s Managing Director Simon Paull commented: Initial due diligence at the Litchfield Lithium Project is off to an excellent start, with demonstrable photographic evidence of pegmatite outcropping along the western boundary. The Board now awaits the outcome of assay results which will determine the potential for contiguous mineralisation with CXO’s Finniss Lithium Project.”

Cadence CEO Kiran Morzaria added: “We are pleased to note that the initial due diligence conducted by Castillo both at Litchfield and Picasso bears out the initial findings announced by Cadence to the market on March 4th 2019. We look forward to further developments” 

Overview

LT and LS each own 50% of Synergy Prospecting Pty Ltd (“Synergy”), and have granted Castillo a 90-day option to acquire 100% of theoutstanding shares of LT and LS and by implication 100% of Synergy.

During this 90-day period, Castillo will be conducting due diligence on all three entities to ensure the underlying assets are in good standing and there are no material adverse issues. Under the terms of the option agreement, Castillo can exercise its right to acquireLT, LS and Synergy at anytime during the 90-day period.

Castillo Copper Limited is an Australian-based explorer primarily focused on copper across Australia and Zambia. The group is embarking on a strategic transformation to morph into a mid-tier copper group underpinned by its core projects:

  • A large footprint in the in the Mt Isa copper-belt district, north-west Queensland, which delivers significant exploration upside through having several high-grade targets and a sizeable untested anomaly within its boundaries in a copper-rich region.
  • Four high-quality prospective assets across Zambia’s copper-belt which is the second largest copper producer in Africa.
  • A large tenure footprint proximal to Broken Hill’s world-class deposit that is prospective for zinc-silver-lead-copper-gold.
  • Cangai Copper Mine in northern New South Wales, which is one of Australia’s highest grading historic copper mines.

The primary assets of Synergy, which are wholly-owned, comprise the Litchfield Lithium Project (EL31774) in NT and Picasso Lithium Project (E63/1888) in WA. In addition, Synergy has an application in NT – EL31828 – known as the Alcoota Lithium Project, which comprises ground proximal to Alice Springs. Castillo will need to undertake further geological due diligence on this application.

LT and LS also hold applications for six lithium properties in San Luis Province, Central Argentina. Again, Castillo will need toundertake further geological due diligence on these applications.

Further details on these assets and all the applications and permits are contained on our website here

Option terms & consideration

The terms of the 90-day option are as follows:

  • A$50,000 non-refundable deposit in cash on formally granting the option that will go directly to Synergy for working capital purposes.

Upon exercising the option within the 90-day period, the binding consideration terms are as follows:

  • A$1m script payment in CCZ shares will become payable to the Vendor Group based on the 14-day WVAP calculated from the date of which the option agreement is announced to the ASX.Note, the Vendor Group will be subject to a 6-month voluntary escrow period for 50% of the shares and 12-months for the 50% balance from the date of settlement. In addition, both parties agree to sign off on a binding term sheet.

Incremental consideration terms are applicable if the following milestones are achieved:

  • A$1m script payment in CCZ’s shares to the Vendor Group based on the 14-day WVAP if two drill-holes produce assayed intercepts greater or equal to a true width of at least 10m @ 1.3% Li2O.Note, the two holes will be at least 100m apart, but not greater than 200m.
  • A$1m script payment in CCZ’s shares to the Vendor Group based on the 14-day WVAP if a JORC compliant total inferred resource of at least 7Mt @ 1.3% Li2O is modelled by SRK Consulting.
  • In the event of commercial mining operations commencing a 2% NSR will be payable to the nominees of the facilitator.
