Overview

Macarthur Minerals Ltd (TSXV:MMS) is an Australian resources company focused on the identification and exploration of gold and high-grade lithium in Australia’s Pilbara region. The company is also developing two iron ore projects in Western Australia and has a lithium exploration project in Nevada.

Historically focused on iron ore, Macarthur Minerals has diversified into lithium and gold, most recently becoming involved in the conglomerate gold rush in Western Australia’s Pilbara region. Conglomerate gold was first identified in the area by Artemis Resources Limited (ASX:ARV). It presents as gold nuggets in the shape and size of watermelon seeds and exists within a craton of metamorphic and igneous rock akin to the Witwatersrand Basin in South Africa.

The company entered the Pilbara with an initial focus on lithium exploration; however, following the emergence of the conglomerate gold story, Macarthur Minerals has identified the potential for conglomerate-hosted gold and uncovered the presence of gold on its own  acreage.  Macarthur Minerals is conducting exploration for both minerals in parallel, which have been found to co-occur such as at Kidman Resources’ Mt Holland project.

Company Highlights

● 1,325 square kilometers in Pilbara region experiencing the conglomerate gold rush
