David Taplin, president, chief executive officer and director of Macarthur Minerals, commented:
“We are delighted to open the IPO and accept applications to raise up to $10-million (Australian). This is an exciting step for the company towards advancing its Australian iron ore and lithium interests. Macarthur Minerals will retain 66- to 76-per-cent ownership of Macarthur Australia. We believe that an ASX IPO of our Australian iron ore and lithium projects will provide improved price realization for those projects more consistent with our ASX-listed peers.”
