David Taplin, Joint CEO and Director of Macarthur Minerals commented:
“Macarthur Minerals is pleased that eleven (11) out of sixteen (16) of its Pilbara tenements have granted paving the way for exploration and drilling on those tenements for conglomerate gold, gold, and lithium. This includes approximately half of the area subject to the joint venture with Artemis Resources Limited, approximately half of the prospective Hillside area, where nuggets have been found and the tenement in the Pilgangoora region proximate to Pilbara Minerals Limited’s and Altura Mining Limited’s lithium projects.
This places Macarthur Minerals ahead of most of the other conglomerate gold explorers in the region and is a significant milestone for Macarthur Minerals. The remaining five (5) tenements are expected to grant shortly.”
The location of the 11 granted Exploration Licenses in the Eastern Pilbara and the remaining five pending grant is shown in Figure 1.
