Platinum group metals (PGMs) fly under the radar when it comes to critical minerals but Panton’s status as the highest grade PGM deposit in Australia makes it one to watch.

Stockhead’s Sarah Hughan sits down with Future Metals (ASX:FME) executive chair Patrick Walta to get the short end of the long story on the company’s latest announcement.

FME’s recently released scoping study is a fine point on what has been 20 years of development for the Panton resource to date.

Over $50m has been spent on the asset, 45,000m of drilling, and a half kilometre of exploration decline in place with 400t of bulk metallurgical test work completed at the project.

“All of that work over the decades has been jam packed into this scoping study that was released,” Walta says.

Tune in to hear Future Metals’ Patrick Walta discuss the results of the scoping study, the PGM market and how the Panton deposit compares to other development stage PGM projects.
