Stillwater Critical Minerals – Why Is Platreef-Style Mineralization In Montana So Compelling For Stillwater West?
Michael Rowley, President and CEO, and Dr. Danie Grobler, Vice-President of Exploration of Stillwater Critical Minerals (TSX.V: PGE – OTCQB: PGEZF), join us for a larger project update and the further resource delineation plans at their flagship Stillwater West Project in Montana. In this conversation we dive further into the parallels between this Project and the South African Platreef battery metals and platinum group elements mines and development projects found on the northern limb of the Bushveld Igneous Complex. We discuss how this bulk mining method differs from the traditional narrow-vein reefs for traditional PGEs, in that it offers economies of scale, and a wealth of battery metals like nickel, cobalt, and copper.
Danie lays out the focus of the exploration team at present of relogging core, looking for geological structural controls, and reviewing the wealth of potential targets for future drilling in that larger context. Mike outlines that the Company is also working towards an updated resource estimate for later this year, that will encompass the 14 drill holes from the 2021 exploration program and further highlight the size and scope of the Stillwater West Project.
