A Look at Platinum Miners

Includes: PALDF, SBGL

Platinum is an important member of the precious metals complex. There are three platinum miners I have reviewed. But I have to admit, I’m not sufficiently knowledgeable to make bold recommendations.

The three miners are Stillwater [North America] (SWC), and Aquarius and Impala [South Africa]. North American Palladium (PAL) also produces platinum as a by-product.

I’ll give you the data and the links to concise presentations these companies have made (if any) to the Denver Gold Forum in the past three years. At some point I’ll review the notes of Wall Street analysts who follow these companies.

First, here is an interactive chart from INO.com on Platinum spot prices. Platinum spot chart (Interactive link)
