TRADING STATEMENT                                                               
Shareholders are advised that a reasonable degree of certainty exists that      
Implats` headline earnings per share (HEPS) and basic earnings per share        
(EPS) for the six months ended 31 December 2011 are expected to be between      
552 cents and 587 cents which is between 60% and 70% higher than that of the    
six months ended 31 December 2010 (EPS and HEPS of 345 cents).                  
The increase in HEPS and EPS is due to a weakening of the rand/dollar           
exchange rate and accounting adjustments associated with movements in both      
the share price and metal prices during the period under review.                
The financial information on which this trading statement is based has not      
been reviewed by the external auditors of Implats.                              
The Company`s six months financial results will be released on 16 February      
3 February 2012
