In this episode, host Peter Strachan discusses the role that platinum group elements play in industrial processes and general applications such as jewellery and as catalysts. 

Populating the expert panel for this discussion is Sam Rodda, CEO and managing director of Podium Minerals (ASX:POD) and Jardee Kininmonth, CEO & managing director of Future Metals (ASX:FME) 

Podium Minerals is an exploration and resources development company focused on platinum group metals, gold and base metals. Its 100% owned Parks Reef PGM Project comprises a 15km strike of near surface PGM, gold and base metal mineralisation which is located within the Mid West Region of WA.

Future Metals is an Australian based exploration company focused on advancing its 100% owned Panton PGM Project in the eastern Kimberly region of WA. The Panton project is backed by 20+ years of metallurgical test work and Future Metals’ detailed project review has identified broad, shallow mineralisation outside of the current high-grade MRE, demonstrating Panton’s bulk tonnage potential.

The group discuss a range of topics including Sam’s Podium journey so far, PGE demand over recent years, price increase factors, FME’s Panton PGM Project, POD’s Parks Reef PGM Project, budgeting & feasibility work over the next 6 months, and more.
