Platinum Group Metals Elandsfontein Drilling Intercepts Shallow UG-2 Platinum Reef Drilling Continuing
VANCOUVER, B.C., March 27, 2003 (PRIMEZONE) -- Drilling by Platinum Group Metals Ltd, (TSX Venture Exchange:PTM), on the Elandsfontein property, immediately adjoining Anglo Platinum's Bafokeng Rasimone Platinum Mine, has intercepted the UG-2 platinum reef at shallow depths and drilling is continuing. The reef is present at depths of less than 55 meters in all of the initial 4 drill holes reported below. The final hole reported here includes an intercept of 3.45 g/t platinum, palladium and rhodium plus gold over 1.29 meters, the traditional UG-2 thickness and grade. Drilling at Elandsfontein will focus along strike to the northwest for a further 1,000 meters on the property and will also test for down dip potential. A total of 41 holes are planned in the current drilling program and a second drill rig will now be added to accelerate the program. Further assays including assays from a potential second reef intercept in the initial holes are expected shortly.
