Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) Seeks TSX-V Approval to Close Financing on the Lake Giles Iron Ore Project

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note the announcement today from Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (“Macarthur”) that final approval is being sought from the TSX-V to close the private placement offering (the “Offering”) of US$6 million of secured Convertible Note (“Note”) as previously announced on March 19, 2019.
Cadence holds approximately 9.8% 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.
The proceeds of the Offering will be used to complete a Bankable Feasibility Study (“BFS”) on Macarthur’s Lake Giles Iron Ore Project (“Project”) in Western Australia. The BFS will include a 54-hole infill drill program to obtain metallurgical samples and convert Inferred and Indicated mineral resources to a Measured category.
Macarthur owns 100% of the Lake Giles Iron Ore Project. The Project incorporates the Mineral Resources of the Moonshine Magnetite Project and the Ularring Hematite Project. The Moonshine Magnetite resource contains Inferred Mineral Resources of approximately 710 mt at 30.2% Fe.  The Ularring Hematite resource includes Indicated Mineral Resources of approximately 54.46 Mt at 47.2% Fe and Inferred Mineral Resources of approximately 25.99 Mt at 45.4% Fe. The mineral resource estimates were detailed as previously announced on June 17, 2019 filed under the Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) undertaken by independent consultants Engenium Pty Ltd (“Engenium”) for a 2.5 to 3.4 Mtpa operation incorporating the Moonshine Magnetite and Ularring Hematite Mineral Resources to produce a high-grade blended concentrate in excess of 65% Fe. The technical and financial evaluation in the PEA indicates the Project is potentially economically viable and further project development is justified.
The Note is structured around these key terms:
  • The Note has a face value of US$10,000 following adoption of a loan note instrument.
  • The Note can be converted at any time into common shares of Macarthur at Noteholder’s option at a conversion price that reflects 80% of the average VWAP over 5 trading days immediately preceding a notice of conversion or at the greater of C$0.10 with attaching warrant offered for one fourth of the Commitment amount exercisable at the greater of C$0.10 or the average VWAP over 5 trading days immediately preceding the date of the Advance date.
  • The Note will have a term to maturity of 3 years and bear interest at a rate of 12.5% per annum.
  • The Note includes a mandatory conversion clause that such conversion may not have the effect of causing a Noteholder to own 20% or more of the common shares of Macarthur or becoming a control person.
  • The Mining Leases of the Project held by Macarthur act as security for the Note.
  • Any shares issued upon conversion of the principal amount of the Note and any accrued interest will be subject to certain resale restrictions, including a restricted (or “hold”) period of four months and one day following the distribution date, under applicable Canadian securities legislation.

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) Announces US$6m Financing to Complete Moonshine Magnetite and Ularring Hematite Iron Ore Bankable Feasibility Study.

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (“Macarthur”) has announced the issuance of a private placement offering (the “Offering”) of up to US$6 million of secured Convertible Note (“Note”).

The proceeds from the offering will be used to complete a Bankable Feasibility Study (“BFS”) on Macarthur’s Moonshine Magnetite and Ularring Hematite iron ore deposits in Western Australia. The BFS will include a 54-hole drill program.

Macarthur owns 100% of the Moonshine Magnetite Project, with an Inferred and Indicated Mineral Resource Estimate consisting of 1,316 million tonnes (Mt) @ 30.1% Iron (Fe). Initial metallurgical test work from core at Moonshine indicated that a very high-grade iron ore product ranging from 68.5%-69.1% Fe, can be achieved as an export quality target.

The Inferred Mineral Resource estimate for the Moonshine Magnetite Project was initially prepared by CSA Global Pty Ltd (NI43-101 Technical Report filed December 17, 2009, titled “NI43-101 Technical Report on Lake Giles Iron Ore Project: Western Australia”) and was updated by Snowden Mining Industry Consultants (NI43-101 Technical Report filed March 25, 2011, titled “Macarthur Minerals Limited: Moonshine and Moonshine North Prospects, Lake Giles Iron Project, Western Australia, NI43-101 Technical Report – Preliminary Assessment”).

Macarthur also owns the Ularring Hematite Project, with a Mineral Resource Estimate consisting of Indicated 54.46 Mt @ 47.2% Fe and Inferred 25.99Mt @ 45.4% Fe, previously announced on August 16, 2012 (NI 43-101 Technical Report filed October 1, 2012, titled “NI 43-101 Report, Macarthur Minerals Limited, Pre-Feasibility Study, Ularring Hematite Project, Western Australia”). The Pre-feasibility Study focused on utilising all Probable Mineral Reserve of 42.95Mt @ 47% Fe hematite, producing a 60.1% Fe sinter fines product.

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.

Cadence Minerals CEO Kiran Morzaria commented: “As a major shareholder in the Company, Cadence Minerals are delighted that Macarthur Minerals has seized the initiative to progress the Moonshine Magnetite and Ularring Hematite Iron Ore projects with a US$6m offering. Existing data indicates solid potential for a quality iron ore product at both projects.” 

“To quote Macarthur CEO Cameron McCall: ‘what makes this project unique is the close proximity to existing under-utilized rail and port infrastructure. The recent disruption in supply in the iron ore market creates a market that is seeking high grade low impurity products, and the Moonshine Magnetite product is ideally suited to fill this supply void and to meet this shift in product preference by the major Chinese and global markets.’ In summary, we at Cadence believe that securing funding at this juncture further strengthens the Macarthur investment proposition.”

Cadence Minerals #KDNC -Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) Update on High Grade Moonshine Magnetite and Ularring Hematite Projects and Infrastructure

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) (“Macarthur”) has provided an update on the Moonshine Magnetite and Ularring Hematite Projects (“Projects”) based upon revised production strategy and cost estimates, resulting in reduced Opex and Capex estimates.

Highlights:

  • Capacity at Port of Esperance now available
  • Capacity on rail network available
  • Hematite DSO Opex estimate reduced to A$42/tonne (“t”) shipped free on board (“FOB”)
  • Magnetite Opex estimate reduced to $55/tonne FOB
  • Capex estimate for a combined project reduced to US$335 million
  • High margin for premium magnetite product >65% Fe

Macarthur has re-evaluated both the hematite and magnetite projects in response to current market trends of heavy discounting of low-grade iron ore and premium pricing for high grade iron ore. Additionally, Macarthur has been preparing to take advantage of the cessation of operations by Cleveland Cliffs Inc., which has paved the way for access to both rail and port infrastructure. This has been the greatest impediment to advancing the Projects into a production phase.

Mr Andrew Hawker, a member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists, is a full-time employee of Hawker Geological Services Pty Ltd and is a Qualified Person as defined in National Instrument 43-101.  Mr Hawker has reviewed and approved the technical information contained in the Macarthur news release.

Cadence holds approximately 10% of the issued equity interest in Macarthur, which is an Australian mining exploration company focused primarily on lithium, iron ore and gold in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. It also has a lithium project in Nevada, USA.

The full release can be found at: https://web.tmxmoney.com/article.php?newsid=6946082994529972&qm_symbol=MMS

 

Cadence Minerals CEO Kiran Morzaria commented:“Cameron McCall and his team have provided a timely re-evaluation of Moonshine and Ularring projects. As well as a reduction in Opex and Capex estimates, the Macarthur investment case has also been strengthened by the access to rail and port infrastructure following cessation of operations by Cleveland Cliffs. We look forward to the next phase of developments.
