Drilling planned and ready for mobilisation in late October (pending approvals)
Macarthur Minerals Executive Chairman Cameron McCall commented; "We are pleased to provide an update on the work completed since the Joint Venture between Macarthur and Fe Limited was entered into on May 14, 2019. FEL's exploration activities have been focused on the Company's previously underexplored Pilbara lithium and gold areas and to date, the results have been very encouraging with numerous high-grade results in the Hillside and Strelley Project areas. FEL is currently in the process of planning a drilling program with the areas shaping up to host multiple attractive and untested prospects."
As previously announced by the Company on August 23, 2019, samples collected by FEL's geological team from the Hillside Project returned strongly anomalous grades for base metals and gold from several locations.
The assay results are highly encouraging with 8 samples returning copper values over 1% with a peak of 18.8% and often accompanied with elevated gold, silver and zinc values.
Of considerable interest was an assay result of 59.4% MnO (46% Mn) from a sample collected from outcrop of a newly discovered oxide horizon. By comparison, Consolidated Minerals' Woodie Woodie manganese deposit has a resource grade averaging 31.4% Mn. This prospect will be followed up in due course."

Cadence CEO Kiran Morzaria commented; "Macarthur Minerals continues to make solid progress with the FEL JV at the Hillside Project. In addition to a raft of high grade copper, gold, silver and zinc results, the new high grade manganese prospect has added an additional and potentially valuable dimension to the project."
