Macarthur Minerals Limited (TSX-V: MMS) (ASX: MIO) (OTCQB: MMSDF) (the Company or Macarthur) is pleased to announce that CPS Corporate Advisors (CPS) has been appointed as the lead Broker for the proposed spin out of the Company’s Pilbara gold, copper and lithium tenements (Pilbara Assets).

The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary Macarthur Lithium Pty Ltd, which holds the Company’s Pilbara Assets will be renamed Infinity Mining Limited (Infinity) and converted to a public company (subject to finalisation of ASIC approvals). Under the agreement with CPS, Infinity proposes to undertake an initial public offering (IPO) and make application for listing on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in the coming months. Under an agreement with Zanil Pty Ltd, Infinity retains the rights to acquire additional assets in the Central Goldfields upon completing the listing process.

Highlights
  • Macarthur to spin-out its gold and copper Pilbara Assets in Infinity Mining Limited and make application to list Infinity on the ASX later this year, subject to exchange approvals.
  • Infinity has completed a successful due diligence program and will acquire additional Central Goldfields assets from Zanil Pty Ltd on completion of the proposed listing on ASX.
  • Macarthur will retain a material shareholding in Infinity following listing.
  • Three of the Central Goldfields assets (The Great Northern, Craig’s Rest and the Camel Leases) have historic drilling for gold that will form the basis of an early drilling program.

Infinity Exploration Program

Infinity intends to commence a programme of work that is focused on fast tracking drill targets to support an early 2022 drilling campaign across multiple gold and copper targets defined by Macarthur’s previous exploration at the Hillside Gold and Copper Project near Marble Bar in the Pilbara region (see announcement: here) – 5 September 2018.

Infinity has completed its due diligence on 10 historic gold and copper tenements in the Leonora area of the Central Goldfields region of Western Australia, which Zanil Pty Ltd (Zanil) is authorised to deal with on behalf of the tenement holders (Central Goldfields Assets). An independent technical report on the Pilbara Assets and the Central Goldfields Assets has been compiled to support a transaction, and Infinity and Zanil are finalising the terms of a sale and purchase agreement for the Central Goldfield Assets. The Central Goldfields Assets will be vended into Infinity following the listing on ASX.

The Company will provide further details with respect to the spin out transaction and IPO listing in a subsequent news release.

Joe Phillips, Managing Director of Macarthur Minerals commented:

“The appointment of CPS Capital Group will trigger a Seed funding round during August 2021, to support the IPO listing and advance the exploration programs for the Hillside Project and three key areas around Leonora that host historic drilling results. This 2021 program is designed to build the platform for an early 2022 Pilbara exploration campaign.

The Company will provide further details with respect to the seed funding round and progress on the spin-out transaction and IPO listing in a subsequent news release.”

Jason Peterson Managing Director / Head of Corporate, CPS Capital Group commented:

CPS is excited to be working again with the Board of Macarthur to achieve the spin-out listing, of the non- Iron Ore assets of Macarthur, into the new entity to be IPO’ed, Infinity Mining Limited. CPS has had a very good working relationship with Macarthur as a supporter of Macarthur and introducing Macarthur to investors via our client base. We look forward to achieving the same goals with Infinity with this highly professional team.

The terms of appointment of CPS will be contained in the Prospectus and are considered standard for appointments of a transaction of this type and nature. The offer to be made under Prospectus is not underwritten.

The final structure, timing and terms and conditions of the IPO will be determined after further consultation between CPS and the Company and will be dependent on market conditions, which may change over time.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Mr Cameron McCall, Chairman
