Yes, and all of that is important. But keep your eyes focused on what the company is looking to do on the international level. I'm sure you might be pleased.

Hi Natasha_Kidd dear, whereof do you speak? Tell us more
please :-)
Flag having international connections would be great, but this is the first time I heard of it.Flag does have a number of US shareholders as I know a few of them and there are a few in the UK.
Some action is coming up in the next few weeks and if the POG keeps raising I will have to travel to Sudbury myself and gather up the 2000 ozs of gold with my name on it, just for the heck of it.Might need a few strong arms with a sharp shovel though.cheers!

'some action in the next few weeks'...is a mild understatment. As to flying to Sudbury, have you ever been there? It is the nether region of the world!

Besides, rather than visit that property, you might want to belay that and consider flying to somewhere more exotic in the near future.

Hi Natasha, yes I have been in Sudbury and have a rough idea what it looks like.(had a fairly large holding around Wawa at one time and a relative with a cottage at Georgian Bay)
As for the understatement, I have been accused of hyping before for saying much less, so I'd rather have a pleasant surprise and say nothing.Murdo is on his way to Sudbury right now. So if there is any good news coming, it should come soon.cheers
P.S. for anyone who would like to read the Schandl report, it is a public document and available, I was told, from the CDNX

Sudbury bringing what visual joys that it may...I'd much rather be in the south of Africa, kicking around a well assembled property. I've got to hand it to these guys at Platinum Group, they are making things happen.

Right now, the share price is an absolute gift.

does anyone here follow Trend Mining, the Kaplan/Edelman/Soros PGM vehicle?

i have inherited a very small position in this company, and as a non-geologist, find it almost impossible to evaluate. but then, since it is basically a land position with no established resource, let alone reserve, maybe i need a fortune teller, not a geologist?:-)

be interested to hear from anyone who has an opinion (reasoned or otherwise).

TIA:

No. 02-31 NEWS RELEASE MAY 10, 2002
WHEATON RIVER TO OPTION AND FUND DRILLING ON PART OF PLATINUM GROUP METALS LAC DES ILES AREA HOLDINGS

Platinum Group Metals Ltd. (PTM: TSX Venture Exchange) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an Option Agreement with Wheaton River Minerals Ltd. (“Wheaton River”) whereby Wheaton River can earn up to a 25% interest in the Shelby Lake and Lac des Iles River Properties by funding exploration expenditures totalling $400,000. An initial $200,000 exploration program, which will allow Wheaton River to earn a 10% interest in both properties, is planned to start immediately. PTM will be the operator of the exploration program.

The initial program will include ground geophysics and drilling of approximately 1,000 meters. A minimum of four drill holes, totalling approximately 800 meters are planned to test the Stinger Zone where surface grab sampling returned values of 5.7g/t palladium, 1.0g/t platinum and 0.7g/t gold. This is the first drill test of the Stinger Zone, which is hosted by the Towle Lake Intrusive Complex (TLC). The TLC can be traced for over 20km and hosts at least two other significant platinum-palladium occurrences within PTM’s holdings. The second target, to be targeted by 2 holes, is a distinct geophysical feature near the western end of this trend.

PTM can earn a 50% interest in the Shelby Lake Property by completing expenditures of $500,000 over 4 years and a 60% interest by expending an additional $500,000 over an additional 30-months under an underlying Option Agreement with New Claymore Resources Ltd. PTM holds the right to earn a 50% interest in the Lac des Iles River Property by undertaking exploration expenditures of $1,000,000 over 5 years and a 60% interest by funding a feasibility study under the terms of an underlying agreement with East West Resource Corp. and Maple Minerals Ltd. Wheaton River’s Option is contingent on PTM completing its underlying Option earn -ins. At the end of the initial $200,000 program Wheaton River and PTM have the option of converting the Wheaton River’s property interest to PTM common shares. The obligations of PTM are subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

About Platinum Group Metals Ltd.
PTM remains firmly focussed on platinum and palladium mineral exploration and development opportunities and has a large portfolio of mineral rights. PTM recently completed an amalgamation with New Millennium Metals Corp. Both companies have been active platinum-palladium explorers since 2000. A program of 9,000 meters of drilling, as part of a $1.25M program, funded by Anglo Platinum on the company’s Agnew Lake Project was announced April 18, 2002.
PTM has also recently announced (April 24, 2002) a $1,000,000 brokered private placement at $0.25 per Common Share with Pacific International Securities Ltd. contingent on, and to close part and parcel with, a confidential property acquisition target. The Company has received full interest in the potential placement and is now pursuing the acquisition targets.

SRU.V - Second Drill Rig To Define Open-Pit Potential - Western Boundary Staked To Cover UTEM Extension (enews)


Ferguson Lake Nickel-Copper-Cobalt-Platinum-Palladium Project,
Nunavut, Canada

The Starfield Resources Inc. (CDNX: SRU; OTC-BB: SRFDF) 2002 drill program, underway since March 2002, has been designed to achieve three objectives. The initial stage of drilling consists of coring three wedged offset holes from drill hole FL01-101 which reported on October 3, 2001 a 0.35 meter intersection grading 103 g/t palladium, 26.7 g/t platinum and 2.74 g/t rhodium at a depth of 962.28 meters. The three offset intersections, to be compiled and reported to the Company by independent consultant, Dr. N.C. Carter, P.Eng., upon his receipt of all results, are designed to determine orientation of this new PGE horizon to direct further detailed exploration.

A second drill rig on site will immediately commence coring approximately 2,600 meters in 22 holes of definition and fill-in drilling of higher grade, near surface West Zone massive sulphides located between Sections 40W and 50W. Currently, this region of West Zone is estimated to contain 8.1 million tonnes grading 1.07% copper, 0.83% nickel, 1.53 g/t palladium and 0.20 g/t platinum at a 1.5% copper + nickel cutoff and includes 2.5 million tonnes grading 1.18% copper, 1.04% nickel, 1.78 g/t palladium and 0.29 g/t platinum at a 2.0% copper + nickel cutoff. Preliminary mineral resource estimates for West Zone between Sections 40W and 50W are based on 50 drill holes, including historic Inco holes for which nickel, copper and only partial PGE assays are reported. The holes drilled by Starfield during 1999 and 2000 were analyzed for nickel, copper, palladium, platinum and cobalt. Dr. Carter's 22 hole program is designed to upgrade the mineral resource from an "inferred" to an "indicated" category as defined by the CIM Standing Committee, to further increase the resource estimate and to establish PGE and cobalt values. The combined drill results should also provide sufficient information to allow a preliminary assessment and design of open pit mine potential in this area.

Additional exploration is scheduled to test extensions to the West Zone, as indicated by UTEM and magnetic geophysical anomalies, at depth in the area of Section 6160W (below drill holes FL01-84, 99, and 104) and along strike in the areas from Section 80W to 84W and Section 106W to 110W.

After reviewing geophysical data Starfield has acquired, by staking, two additional mineral claims which increases the Company's land holding by 4,100 hectares to a new total of 28,100 hectares. These claims adjoin the western boundary of the Ferguson Lake property and protect a 10-kilometer long area into which the West Zone is projected to extend.

Crews to operate the second rig are on site and will commence drilling immediately.

Fort Knox-Dynatec Sudbury Joint Venture Discovers New Nickel Mineralization and Confirms Previous Drill Results
Toronto, Ontario

Fort Knox Gold Resources Inc. (FNX-TSE) and Dynatec Corporation
(DY-TSE) are pleased to announce the discovery of new nickel
mineralization in a previously undrilled area within the McCreedy
West property and that Cu-Ni-Pt-Pd -Au mineralization has been
confirmed within known mineralized zones at the McCreedy West and
Levack properties.

HIGHLIGHTS

McCREEDY WEST PROPERTY

* The discovery of high-grade nickel mineralization in a
previously undrilled and readily accessible part of the
McCreedy West mine has the potential to be a new mineralized
zone (Inter Main Zone).

* At the PM Zone, the intersection of significant Cu-Ni-TPM
mineralization over a 250-ft. core interval along with shorter
sections of much higher grade mineralization, confirms the
previous drill results.

* Inter Main Zone: 52.3 ft. 0.4% Cu, 3.2% Ni, 0.2 g/t TPM

* Upper Main Zone: 35.0 ft. 0.6% Cu, 1.7% Ni, 0.2 g/t TPM

* PM Zone: 250.7 ft. 1.2% Cu, 0.2% Ni, 6.2 g/t TPM
(including) 24.6 ft. 2.1% Cu, 0.5% Ni, 24.6 g/t TPM
(including) 24.7 ft. 1.7% Cu, 0.5% Ni, 15.1 g/t TPM
(including) 67.0 ft. 2.2% Cu, 0.3% Ni, 11.3 g/t TPM
(including) 15.3 ft. 7.5% Cu, 0.8% Ni, 30.7 g/t TPM

LEVACK PROPERTY

* Significant Cu-Ni-TPM mineralization was intersected in the
1300 and 1900 Zones and a strong borehole geophysical anomaly
indicates that the two zones may be connected and warrant
extensive drilling.

* 1300 Zone: 35.7 ft. 0.6% Cu, 2.0% Ni, 0.8 g/t TPM
(including) 19.3 ft. 0.9% Cu, 2.6% Ni, 0.9 g/t TPM

* 1900 Zone: 20.0 ft. 2.8% Cu, 2.0% Ni, 3.0 g/t TPM
(including) 8.7 ft. 5.3% Cu, 4.4% Ni, 5.1 g/t TPM

13.5 ft. 1.3% Cu, 2.1% Ni, 1.7 g/t TPM
(including) 6.1 ft. 2.1% Cu, 4.2% Ni, 3.2 g/t TPM

Notes:
* The lengths reported are drill intersected core lengths and
not an estimate of true widths.
* TPM refers to Total Precious Metals defined as Pt+Pd+Au. ??g/t
refers to grams per metric tonne
* Above intersection summaries are detailed in attached Tables
1 and 2

The above intersection summaries are part of the initial results
from the previously announced Cdn$14 million exploration and
development program being conducted by the Fort Knox-Dynatec
Sudbury Joint Venture (see April 29, 2002 FNX and DY press
release). Fort Knox is the exploration operator and conducts all
exploration on behalf of the Sudbury Joint Venture, which is owned
75% by Fort Knox and 25% by Dynatec. The on-going drill program was
initiated on March 21, 2002 and nine drill rigs are currently in
operation. Seven boreholes, totaling 15,887 ft., have been
completed to date on the McCreedy West and Levack properties.

The Sudbury Joint Venture properties (McCreedy West, Levack,
Victoria, Norman and Kirkwood) are all former copper (Cu), nickel
(Ni), platinum (Pt), palladium (Pd) and gold (Au) producers. The
properties are located in the Sudbury District of northeastern
Ontario and are covered by previously announced agreements between
Fort Knox and Inco (see January 11, 2002 FNX press release) and
Fort Knox and Dynatec Corporation (see February 3, 2002 FNX and DY
press release). For a detailed description of the properties and
previous work on the properties please go to the Fort Knox website
"www.fnxmining.com " and Fort Knox's Annual Information Form dated
December 21, 2001.

References to previous or historical drill assays are extracted
from Dr. J.M. Patterson's November 7, 2001 report entitled Property
Report, Sudbury, Ontario, Cu-Ni-PGE Properties or have been
independently verified by Fort Knox 's Qualified Persons and are
the sole responsibility of Fort Knox. The full text of Dr.
Patterson's report can be found on Fort Knox's website.

Inter Main Zone, McCreedy West Property

The discovery borehole (DDH 3020) in a potential new zone (the
"Inter Main Zone") was designed to test the Cu-PGM rich PM Zone at
depth in the footwall of the McCreedy West property. It passed
through a previously undrilled area of McCreedy West contact zone
and intersected 52.3 ft. of mineralization grading 3.2% Ni at the
base of the Sudbury Igneous Complex (SIC).

The Inter Main Zone consists of nickel-rich, Sudbury Basin
contact-type mineralization. A previous borehole drilled in the
East Zone approximately 270 ft. up-dip from the discovery borehole
contains two mineralized intersections grading 0.4% Cu, 3.4% Ni
over 10.3 ft. and 0.5% Cu, 2.8% Ni over 15.8 ft. A borehole drilled
420 ft. to the west of the discovery borehole cut 0.8% Cu, 3.0% Ni
over 9.5 ft. and a borehole located 222 ft. down dip from the
discovery borehole intersected 0.1% Cu, 1.0% Ni over 33.1 ft. The
Inter Main Zone, situated between the unmined East Main Zone and an
unmined portion of the Lower Main Zone, is interpreted by Fort Knox
to represent a possible, previously undetected, embayment/terrace
at the base of the SIC. Embayment/terrace structures at the contact
of the SIC are traditional hosts of Sudbury Basin contact-type ore
deposits.

A borehole UTEM geophysical response associated with the Inter Main
Zone discovery intersection indicates that a significant anomaly
extends down dip from the intersection.

The discovery of a possible embayment/terrace containing a
relatively thick intersection of high-grade nickel mineralization
in a readily accessible part of the McCreedy West mine has the
potential to influence the Sudbury Joint Venture's near term
operating plans. A second drill rig has been deployed to the area
to test the significance of the discovery.

Upper Main Deposit, McCreedy West Property

The Ni-Cu contact-type Upper Main deposit occurs at the base of the
SIC. It was previously mined from the 250 ft. Level to the 600 ft.
Level. Mineralization is known to extend 100 to 150 ft. below 600
Level and remains un-mined at this location. Fourteen previous
boreholes drilled below the 600 Level intersected 25 significantly
mineralized intersections (e.g. 0.8% Cu, 2.2% Ni, over 44.6 ft. and
0.4% Cu, 2.2% Ni, over 76.8 ft).

Fort Knox's first borehole in the Upper Main (DDH 3000) was
designed to confirm the previous Upper Main drill results and to
continue into the footwall to test the PM Zone. DDH 3000 cut three
intersections in the Upper Main Zone, with the highest grade
intersection being 0.6% Cu, 1.7% Ni, 0.2 g/t TPM over 35.0 ft. The
Upper Main Zone will continue to be tested by boreholes designed to
explore the underlying PM Zone. An engineering/economic evaluation
is required to determine the viability of mining the Upper Main
deposit.

PM Zone, McCreedy West Property

The PM Zone occurs in the footwall of the McCreedy West Property
between the 1450 ft. and 2500 ft. Levels and is approximately 1500
ft. by 1500 ft. in size. Forty three previous drill holes yielded
42 significant drill intersections, with 32 greater than 20 ft. The
previous drilling demonstrated that the PM Zone contains long
intersections of significant Cu and TPM values (e.g. 1.1% Cu, 0.3%
Ni, 5.6 g/t TPM over 126.0 ft) and narrower intersections of higher
grade Cu, Ni and TPM values (e.g. 10.8% Cu, 2.8% Ni, 121.9 g/t TPM
over 7.5 ft.).

Fort Knox's first borehole into the PM Zone (DDH 3000) intersected
the strongest mineralization reported to date. DDH 3000 cut 250.7
ft. grading 1.2% Cu, 0.2% Ni, 6.2 g/t TPM with shorter sections of
much higher grades (2.2% Cu, 0.3% Ni, 11.3 g/t TPM over 67.0' and
7.5% Cu, 0.8% Ni, 30.7 g/t TPM over 15.3 ft.). Although the true
width of this intersection cannot yet be determined, it is
estimated that the true width will be approximately 60% of the core
length.

It appears that portions of the PM Zone may not give strong UTEM
responses due to low sulphide content. However, a prominent, good
quality, offhole UTEM response was detected to the west of the
known extent of the PM Zone in an area of limited drilling.

The PM Zone will continue to be tested with boreholes designed to
also intersect the overlying Upper Main and Inter Main contact-type
deposits at the base of the SIC.

1300 Zone, Levack Property

The Ni-Cu 1300 Zone is a contact-type Sudbury Basin deposit that
occurs at the base of the SIC. It has a known strike length of at
least 650 ft. and is open in all directions. It is untested down
dip where it may connect to the 1900 Ni-Cu-PM Zone. Seven previous
boreholes cut 6 intersections (e.g. 1.1% Cu, 3.3% Ni over 65.7 ft.
and 0.8% Cu, 3.6% Ni over 5.8 ft.).

Fort Knox's first borehole in the 1300 Zone (DDH 2000) intersected
the fringes of the 1300 Zone and cut minor sulphides over two
intervals of 25 ft. and 40 ft. The borehole continued through the
1900 Zone and cut 35.7 ft. of mineralization containing two short
sections (2.9 ft. and 2.0 ft) of massive sulphides for which assays
are awaited. The second borehole to test the 1300 Zone (DDH 2001)
intersected 0.6% Cu, 2.0% Ni, 0.8 g/t TPM over 35.7 ft., including
0.9% Cu, 2.6% Ni, 0.9 g/t TPM over 19.3 ft.

The 1300 Zone will be further tested in conjunction with the
drilling of the 1900 Zone.

1900 Zone, Levack Property

The 1900 Zone occurs within the same embayment structure as the
1300 Zone. It contains high Ni, Cu and TPM values and has a known
strike length of at least 1300 ft., a dip length of at least 900
ft. and is open in all directions. Fifteen previous boreholes cut
18 significant intersections (e.g. 1.9% Cu, 2.6% Ni, 4.4 g/t TPM
over 87.4 ft. and 1.1% Cu, 2.1% Ni, 2.2 g/t TPM over 11.8 ft.).

DDH 2001 continued beyond the 1300 Zone into the 1900 Zone and
intersected 1.0% Cu, 1.0% Ni, 1.8 g/t TPM over 82.6 ft., including
two narrower intersections with higher grades (2.8% Cu, 2.0% Ni,
3.0 g/t TPM over 20.0 ft. and 5.3% Cu, 4.4% Ni, 5.1 g/t TPM over
8.7 ft.).

DDH 2003 was designed to test a previously detected borehole UTEM
anoma ly interpreted to indicate a continuation of the 1300 and
1900 Zones. DDH 2003 intersected mineralization which graded 1.3%
Cu, 2.1% Ni, 1.7 g/t TPM over 13.5 ft., including 2.1% Cu, 4.2% Ni,
3.2g/t TPM over 6.1 ft.

Borehole UTEM geophysical surveys from the two 1900 Zone boreholes
indicate strong conductivity anomalies associated with the
mineralized intersections and warrant further testing.

Analytical Techniques and Methodology

The drill core is processed at Fort Knox's secure core handling
facility in Sudbury, Ontario. The core is logged, and marked for
sampling by qualified personnel. The core to be sampled is sawn in
half; one half of the sawn core is securely bagged and the
remaining half is retained for future reference and study. The
bagged core samples are shipped by commercial transport to ALS
Chemex sample preparation facility in Mississauga, Ontario. ALS
Chemex crushes the samples to 10 mesh and a 250-gram split of the
crushed sample is pulverized to -200 mesh. A 100-gram split of the
pulp is shipped to the ALS Chemex laboratory in Vancouver for
assaying. Remaining crushed sample material and pulverized rejects
are stored at the ALS Chemex sample preparation lab in Mississauga.
All ALS Chemex Sample Preparation facilities and Analytical
Laboratories are registered under the ISO 9001:2000 quality
standard. Assays for base metals are done by ICP-AES (Inductively
Coupled Plasma - Atomic Emission Spectroscopy) following Sodium
Peroxide Fusion. Assays for Precious Metals (Pt, Pd Au) are carried
out by ICP-MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma - Mass Spectrometry).
Quality control samples (reference materials, blanks and
duplicates) are inserted by the laboratory. The analytical results
are transmitted to Fort Knox's Sudbury office, verified and merged
with the borehole logs. Check assaying is systematically conducted
on the remaining half of the core, the pulps and crusher rejects.

Fort Knox is the exploration operator for the Sudbury Joint Venture
and James M. Patterson, Ph.D, Member AGO, and Vice President
Exploration of Fort Knox Gold Inc. is the designated Qualified
Person and is responsible for the verification and quality
assurance of the exploration data and analytical results.

The Fort Knox-Dynatec Sudbury Joint Venture drill program will
continue to operate with two drill rigs on the Levack, Norman and
Victoria properties and three drill rigs on the McCreedy West
property. A tenth drill rig will be added shortly. Exploration
results will be released on the Norman and Victoria properties as
results are received and processed.

Check this out. The information should be out at the opening:

PLATINUM GROUP METALS SEES INCREASED POTENTIAL AT LEVACK BLOCK FOLLOWING THE McCREEDY WEST DISCOVERY

Platinum Group Metals Ltd. (PTM: TSX Venture Exchange) is pleased to announce that it has completed a ground magnetic geophysical survey and reviewed the regional gravity data and geological setting on the Company’s, 100% owned, Levack Block 3km north west of the discoveries announced today at the McCreedy West and Levack Mines, Sudbury Ontario. The survey completed in the past few weeks along with the gravity data and the new model for the area, indicate potential for a previously unmapped Offset Dyke and mineralization on the Levack Block.

A significant new embayment of the Sudbury Intrusive Structure was announced in the McCreedy West area today. Embayments are important structural controls for mineralization along the Sudbury Intrusive Structure and the mineralization along them commonly extend outwards. There is a 1.9% Nickel occurrence in Sudbury breccia rocks, on surface, on the Levack Block.

The Levack Block will be targeted for sampling and geological mapping and an Electromagnetic Survey looking for conductors, to test the new model for the property.

PTM holds three properties covering 1328 hectares (3281 acres) in the very active West Sudbury Basin area.

PTM maintains a large portfolio of mineral rights in Canada focused on PGE potential. The Company also continues to pursue confidential property acquisitions.
