Southern Palladium Limited (JSE: SDL) is pleased to advise its commencement of trade on the
Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) at 9am SAST 8 June 2022 under the code “SDL”.
With its central operations situated in South Africa, the Company’s primary listing will be on the ASX (ASX:
SPD) with a secondary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) under the code “SDL”.
The dual listing follows the successful Initial Public Offering (IPO) of Southern Palladium, which attracted the
maximum target raise amount of $19 million in new equity capital.
Backers in the pre-IPO round included leading Australian investment fund Regal, as well as global funds
management group Sprott Holdings and Lowell Capital. Bridge Street Capital Partners acted as sole manager
for the raise.
A drilling contractor has been secured, with plans underway for a detailed two-phase diamond drilling program
which is scheduled to commence in the coming weeks.
Southern Palladium’s attractive value proposition is underpinned by its status as an advanced-stage
exploration company operating on the Eastern Limb of the Bushveld Complex – the world’s largest platinum
group metals (PGM) resource.
With the funds raised, Southern Palladium is well capitalised to accelerate exploration at its 70%-owned
The Inferred Resource of 18.8Moz sits within a total estimated target at the site which has been assessed by
independent consulting group, CSA Global, at between 33.9Moz and 52.4Moz.
The project is being advanced in collaboration with a single local Community, the Bengwenyama-ya-Maswazi,
which is a major partner with a 30% direct interest and further indirect ownership through its 12.3%
shareholding in Southern Palladium.
The Community is supportive of the project and has an extensive working relationship with the Southern
Palladium management team, led by managing director Johan Odendaal.
Commenting on Southern Palladium’s dual-listing and exploration plans, Managing Director Johan
“We are thrilled to announce Southern Palladium’s dual-listing on the ASX and the JSE, marking a crucial step
forward in the evolution of Bengwenyama, which we view as one of the most exciting PGM projects globally.
The successful listing is the result of a multi-year development process, which leveraged the experience of the
Southern Palladium management team who worked together with the Bengwenyama community to advance
the project. With the funding from its IPO, Southern Palladium will now embark on an extensive drill
programme, moving towards further resource definition and a pre-feasibility study. Longer-term, the near-
surface geology of the site combined with surrounding infrastructure support our view that Bengwenyama has
the potential to develop into a world class PGM asset.”
For the latest update on Southern Palladium’s post-listing strategy, managing director Johan Odendaal
outlined the company’s plans in an interview this week with Investor Stream. Investors are invited to view the
