While drilling operations were continuing at the mine, the company reported that blasting and cleaning operations had been put on hold until "remedial measures", which had been put in place, could be reviewed by the DMR.

Eastern Platinum is a Canadian platinum group metals producer. It is currently engaged in the development and mining of platinum group metal deposits in South Africa.

The company has assets on both the western and the eastern limbs of the Bushveld Complex, a mining area understood to hold approximately 80% of the world's known platinum supply.
