Northern Platinum Shareholders Approve Proposed Acquisition By Prophecy Resource


Vancouver, British Columbia, September 3, 2010: Prophecy Resource Corp. ("Prophecy") (TSX-V:PCY, OTCQX: PRPCF, Frankfurt: 1P2) and Northern Platinum Ltd ("Northern") (TSX-V: NTH) (together, the "Companies") announce that the shareholders of Northern have approved the acquisition of Northern by Prophecy by way of a Plan of Arrangement. The votes were tabulated during an annual and special shareholder meeting held earlier today. 99.9% of votes supported the transaction.

Prophecy Resource Corporation is an internationally diversified company engaged in developing energy, nickel and platinum group metals projects. The company controls over 1.4 billion tons of open-pittable thermal coal in Mongolia (839 Mt Measured, 579 Mt Indicated). In Canada Prophecy owns Lynn Lake Nickel Project, a 10% equity stake in Victory Nickel and agreed to merge with Northern Platinum (TSX-V: NTH) on June 15, 2010. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

Erdenes Tavan Tolgoi will be a model company, Mines Minister says


September 6 ( Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy D.Zorigt has said that his first priority is to see that Erdenes Tavan Tolgoi  works as an internationally competitive company, belying “not unjust” popular fears that a State-owned entity will not deliver the goods. Asked how he will do this,  Zorigt told The Mongolian Mining Journal, “There should be transparency in selecting the management team, and professionals with international experience should be chosen. Only then shall we have a company drawing international attention and respect for its model corporate management, efficiency, and profitability.”


The Minister said work has begun on many fronts. He “does not see much merit in deciding everything beforehand” and prefers crossing bridges only when he comes to them. “We shall certainly have a general long-term vision and goal, but once we begin, there must be freedom to improvise, to respond to situations as they emerge. Deciding everything in advance is a sure prescription to failure. Personally, I’m happy to have an open mind,” he said.


He indicated that the Tavan Tolgoi reserves will be updated and the final figure could well be higher than the presently accepted 6.4 billion tons, of which some 3 billion tons were coking coal. More exploration will be done, especially in the eastern areas of Shar Tolgoi and Bor Tolgoi, before arriving at the final figures to be incorporated in the feasibility study.

European shares gain for 2nd session on U.S. data


(Reuters) - European equities extended the previous session's gains on Monday, supported by banks, with encouraging U.S. jobs data on Friday easing concerns about the world's largest economy facing a double-dip recession.

At 0704 GMT, the FTSEurofirst 300 .FTEU3 index of top European shares was up 0.5 percent at 1,068.47 points after closing 0.8 percent higher on Friday and registering its best weekly performance since early July.


"After a string of disappointing numbers, the data last week provided an element of stability and helped increase risk appetite," said Henk Potts, equity strategist at Barclays Wealth.


"When you couple that with the outlook for corporates, it looks pretty good."


Financial stocks were among the top gainers, with the STOXX Europe 600 banking index .SX7P rising 0.5 percent. Barclays (BARC.L), BNP Paribas (BNPP.PA), Societe Generale (SOGN.PA) and Natixis (CNAT.PA) rising 0.7 to 3.2 percent.
