South Africa: Braemore Seeks £6 Million in Working Capital

22 may 2009

Platinum processor Braemore Resources will seek to raise about £6m for its short-term working capital needs and scaling up its pilot platinum smelter into a full commercial operation, says CEO Leon Coetzer, according to
Coetzer, in London this week to discuss the company's progress with investors, said yesterday Braemore was in talks with banks and fund managers, and was pleased with the response.
Braemore is testing the ConRoast proprietary technology developed initially by Mintek to treat platinum group metals in a more environmentally friendly way and with fewer problems resulting from high chrome content than traditional smelter technology. The company, which is listed on London's AIM, took a secondary listing on the JSE last July.
Braemore said it was taking steps to restructure its demonstration smelter to adapt it to fit with the planned refining facility, which would be the next stage of development, and to address rising costs.
Coetzer said the stronger rand had driven up costs 12,5% in dollar terms in the past eight weeks while the price of platinum in dollars remained static. Market forecasts were that the rand could keep strengthening as there seemed to be an appetite for investment in SA.
