COMPLETION OF FIRST PHASE OF STRATEGIC INVESTMENT IN THE WATERBERG DEVELOPMENT PROJECT
Further to the announcement on 16 October 2017, Implats announces that it has today closed the first
phase of its investment in the Waterberg development project (“Waterberg”) by acquiring a 15%
shareholding in Waterberg for US$30 million from Platinum Group Metals Ltd and Japan Oil, Gas and
Metals National Corporation. As set out in the previous announcement Implats also now has an option to
acquire majority ownership of the project following completion of a definitive feasibility study, as well as a
right of first refusal to smelt and refine Waterberg concentrate.
Located in Limpopo on the northern limb of the Bushveld complex, Waterberg represents a large scale
platinum group metal (“PGM”) resource with an attractive risk profile, given its shallow nature and ability
to support a fully mechanized operation with the potential for the project to have amongst the lowest
operating costs in the PGM sector.
The transaction falls below the categorisation threshold in terms of the JSE Limited Listings Requirements.
