Cold commissioning commences at Phoenix Platinum


Pan African, the African focused precious metals producer, announces that the
Phoenix Platinum Mining (Pty) Limited ('Phoenix') commissioning team together
with the Metanza team (the operators of the Chrome Tailings Retreatment Plant
('CTRP')), have commenced cold commissioning of the CTRP. 


The cold commissioning of the CTRP follows the issuing of a C1 Level:
Certificate of Mechanical Completion (the 'Certificate') by Basil Read Holdings
Limited subsidiary, Matomo Projects (Pty) Limited, in accordance with the
technical documentation as per the lump sum turn key contract, and to the
satisfaction of Phoenix's third party inspectors. The Certificate was issued
upon completion of plant construction and indicates that the plant is ready for
the safe commencement of cold commissioning.  


Jan Nelson, Chief Executive Officer of Pan African, stated:


"The success of completing the construction phase of the Phoenix CTRP within
our planned timeline and within budget has surpassed our expectations and is
indicative of the great teamwork of all involved.  Our next goal is to complete
the commissioning of the plant in order to produce our first concentrate by end
December this year."
