Macarthur’s Joint Venture Partner Fe Limited Releases High Grade Iron Ore Assay Results for the Strelley Project in the Pilbara

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Macarthur Minerals Limited (TSX-V: MMS, OTCQB: MMSDF)  (the “Company” or “Macarthur Minerals”) is pleased to announce that its Joint Venture Partner Fe Limited (“FEL”), has released assay results from a recent field trip to the Strelley Project in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia. 

Macarthur Lithium Pty Ltd (“MLi”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Macarthur entered into an exclusive option agreement (“Option Agreement”) with FEL as announced on May 14, 2019, to earn up to 75% in the projects.

During FELs recent reconnaissance trip to the Strelley Project in the Pilbara, samples were taken from the outcropping Banded Iron Formation (“BIF”) continuing along strike from the previously mined Abydos iron ore project owned by Atlas Iron (Figure 1).

Two rock samples were taken from iron rich outcropping BIF (Figures 1 to 3) with both returning significant assay results (Table 1).

In addition, an aerial review of the geological mapping and photography in the south-eastern corner of the tenement shows a continuation of the marker chert found adjacent to the mineralised outcropping gossan (surface expression of the host VMS mineralogy) in the VentureX Sulphur Springs copper deposit to the south.

Field work has been planned to look for gossans or signs of similar mineralisation occurring within the Strelley Project in the Pilbara in the week beginning 9th September 2019.

Cameron McCall, Executive Chairman of Macarthur Minerals commented;
“Fe Limited’s exploration activity on the Strelley Project is very encouraging with the significant iron ore results returned from recent rock chip sampling.  This area is nearby existing iron ore infrastructure built by Atlas Iron. Macarthur will continue to watch with keen interest as the exploration and drilling campaign to be undertaken by Fe Limited progresses”.
