PGM & Gold Market Highlights

Gold Long Term Investment Demand Has Shifted Upwards


PGM & Gold Market Highlights

BRIC Vehicle Sales In Relation To Global Vehicle Sales

  • The BRIC economies now account for nearly one third of global vehicle sales. This proportion is expected to continue rising over the long term, possibly reaching the 40% - 45% level.
  • Emission standards are expected to continue tightening in these and in many other smaller emerging markets thereby supporting long-term demand.

PGM & Gold Market Highlights

Percentage of Supply Held by ETFs

  • In recent years, a growing proportion of PGM supply is being held by ETFs. Investment demand via ETFs has been the driving force behind platinum and palladium prices, consuming excess supply and offsetting some of the weakness in fabrication demand. New ETFs are slated to come onstream owing to the growing popularity of these investment vehicles.

Note: ETF data represent holdings at the end of the year. 2009 ETF data is year-to-date. 2009 platinum and palladium is forecast supply.

platina resources overview
Platina Resources Overview

Platina Resources Limited (“Platina” or the “Company”) is a PGM and gold development and exploration company with a global portfolio of advanced and early-stage projects.

Platina has advanced development of its two primary assets, Skaergaard (located in Greenland) and MunniMunni (located in Australia), by completing the second stage of pre-feasibility work for Skaergaard and finalizing a scoping level study for MunniMunni.

Both, Skaargaard and MunniMunni, are wholly owned by Platina with no royalties payable on production.

Skaergaard and MunniMunni, together, have mineral resources containing 10.4 million oz gold, 30.7 million oz palladium, 2.8 million oz platinum and 76 thousand oz rhodium.

Platina is adding development resources to its seasoned management team to optimize the beneficiation plans for the Company’s advanced stage projects.

Work programs for 2010 are focused on increasing the confidence level of the Skaergaard mine resource and confirming metallurgical recovery rates for MunniMunni.

skaergaard project
Skaergaard Project
  • Skaergaard, located on the coast of Eastern Greenland, has a Canadian NI 43-101 compliant Inferred Mineral Resource, based on over 20,000 metres of drilling.
  • 100% owned by Platina with no royalties payable on production.
  • Mineralisation consists primarily of palladium, gold and platinum within a titanium and vanadium-rich magnetite gabbro.
  • AMEC Minproc in conjunction with AMC Consultants completed the second stage of the pre-feasibility work by completing a review of a SRK Scoping Study.
  • High grade portion of the Gold Zone identified by AMC Consultants is to be the focus of a 2010 drilling campaign.
  • Pre-feasibility activities to continue in 2010.

Skaergaard Project

Inferred Resource Estimate

* Inferred Resource Estimate calculated under Canadian National Instrument 43-101

Skaergaard Project

AMEC Minproc Pre-Feasibility Level Findings

  • Room and pillar mining has been identified as the preferred underground mining method, with operating costs ranging from US$ 49-81/t for conceptual underground mine development of 2.4Mtpa.
  • Capital expenditure estimate of US$166 million does not include infrastructure costs and has accuracy of + 40%.
  • Excellent bench-scale metallurgical recoveries of gold, palladium and platinum achieved from bulk samples – up to 92.7% gold recovery via flotation.
  • Compelling evidence suggesting a potentially higher-grade gold zone (>4g/t Au + PGM) within the previously defined Gold Zone – to be targeted by key 6,000 m diamond drilling program in 2010.
skaergaard project2
Skaergaard Project

Proposed 2010 Drilling Program

  • Distinctive trend – high grade Au located immediately above PGM-rich zone within Au zone.
  • Western border of the intrusion.
  • Region of coherent 2g/t and 3g/t contours identified within 7.5km² area.
  • Evidence that high grade area could contain combined grades >4g/t Au and PGM.
  • Increase drilling required to demonstrate continuity.

Skaergaard Project

  • AMC has concluded that none of the mining methods proposed by SRK would be suitable for a 6Mtpa operation.
  • AMC consider most practical method for mining Skaergaard to be apparent dip room and pillar utilisingmechanised mining equipment.
    • Slot stope mining and longwall mining discounted due to high labor costs.
    • Mining recovery 60%.
    • Dilution estimated to be 20%.
  • Low profile electric jumbos and loaders successfully utilised in room and pillar methods with 2m mining heights.
mining concept

Skaergaard Project

Mining Concept
  • Mine the outcrop – have underground mining module at surface initially.
  • Drive decline through gold zone, process ore at surface.
  • Drive completed.
  • Mine underground.
  • High grade zone.

Skaergaard Project

  • Rougher flotation test work to establish float response
    • P80 75µm
    • Natural pH 8
    • Simple reagent suite: CuSO4 activator, PAX, A3477, Polyfroth
process considerations

Skaergaard Project

Process Considerations
  • Consider harsh climatic conditions, terrain and restricted access (sea ice).
  • Minimise surface infrastructure and associated cost:
    • Cladding
    • Power (heating)
  • Cash flow
    • Produce dorē and concentrate
proposed drilling

Skaergaard Project

Proposed Drilling
  • To convert inferred to indicated in well established PGM areas drill hole spacing between 250m and 500m have been used.
  • AMC recommend deposit be drilled to 500m x 500m.
  • Area of economic interest to be drilled to 250m x 250m.

2010 field drill program – provide information on margins of 3ppm grade contour
