Macarthur Minerals Completes Geophysical Surveys Targeting Gold and Copper at Its Hillside Project

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Macarthur Minerals Limited (TSX-V: MMS) (the “Company” or “Macarthur”) is pleased to announce that it has completed a heliborne SkyTEM electromagnetic survey program targeting gold and copper at its Hillside Gold Project in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, to define high priority targets from conductors such as clusters of massive sulphide hosted base metal deposits at depth.

Mr Cameron McCall, Executive Chairman of Macarthur Minerals commented: “Following a review of historical data that highlighted several prospective zones, a geophysics program has been completed over key areas to delineate deep massive sulphide structures that have the potential to be hosting gold and copper found at surface.  We are in the right area, as the Hillside Project shares similar geology to Calidus Resources Limited’s Warrawoona Gold Project located to the North East. It is now a matter of further exploration to find the source.

Hillside Gold Project

The Company has completed a heliborne SkyTEM electromagnetic survey on the Hillside Gold Project (“Hillside Project”) in the Pilbara. The survey was conducted at 150m line spacing across two large prospects covering 125km2. The aim of the survey is to define high priority targets from conductors such as clusters of massive sulphide hosted base metal deposits at depth. The data collected will now be processed and interpreted to identify structures with potential for gold, copper or other sulphide mineral deposits. The area surveyed is shown in Figure 1.

The Company’s Hillside Project covers an area of ~400km2 and is highly prospective for gold and copper. Historical rock chip sampling on the Hillside Project has returned results up to 240 grams per tonne gold and 7.8% copper. A rock chip from a recent reconnaissance visit with Artemis Resources Limited to the Hillside Project returned 8.5 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold.

Project Geology

The Hillside Project is located south west of Calidus Resources Limited’s (“Calidus Resources”) Warrawoona Gold Project where it recently announced significant gold of 6 meters at 63.31 g/t, 2 meters at 182.57 g/t and broader intervals including 12 meters at 3.73 g/t and 9 meters at 4.45 g/t. Calidus Resources has recently reported a Mineral Resource of 712,000 ounces of gold at 2.11 g/t.1.

The Warrawoona Gold Project occupies an area dominated by greenstone terrain of the Warrawoona Group with the main stratigraphic unit being the Apex Basalt. Macarthur Minerals’ Tambourah Lithium and Hillside Projects are both situated in areas of highly prospective greenstone terrane that includes the Apex Basalt and other volcanic units of the Warrawoona Group (Figure 2). The Hillside Project also contains substantial volcanic units such as the Euro Basalt of the closely related Kelly Group. The coincident geology of the Hillside, Tambourah and Warrawoona projects combined with numerous historical gold occurrences suggests Macarthur Minerals’ projects are highly prospective for identifying high-grade gold mineralisation.
