STORY of PLATINUM:
Many years ago while working as a video producer in the Platinum industry, a dream was born:
a Dream and a Passion … to tell the people of SA … people working in the Mining and Processing Industries, in SA and from abroad…
Students at Universities and Technicons …
Teachers and school pupils and anyone that might be interested, about:
the Precious Metal Platinum.
On the 8th September 2009 the Documentary video production
“THE STORY of PLATINUM” was launched.
The “Story of Platinum” has been produced –
with the collaboration and combined input and assistance of International Experts and Scientists in their respective fields –
as well as with the Stakeholders, Companies and Mining Houses in the Industry.
Now FOR THE FIRST TIME a comprehensive, logical and understandable video/DVD has been produced in this format and includes:
– the complete history of platinum,
– the geology of the Bushveld Complex,
– the different mining and production processes and
– the various applications of platinum in the world,
“The Story of Platinum” has been completed but the dream hasn’t been fulfilled”.
A Documentary about, GOLD, Coal and Diamonds are still waiting to be done.
