Market Update And Renewal Of Cautionary Announcement

JOHANNESBURG, Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Atlatsa Resources Corporation ("Atlatsa" or the "Company") (TSXV: ATL; NYSE MKT: ATL; JSE: ATL) refers shareholders to the announcements released on 2 February 2012, 3 May 2012, 14 June 2012, 27 July 2012,7 September 2012 and 22 October 2012 respectively, relating to the agreement of key terms in respect of a transaction to restructure, recapitalize and refinance Atlatsa and the Bokoni group of companies ("Bokoni group") (the "Restructure Plan"), as well as the media releases on 27 September 2012 and 2 October 2012 relating to the conclusion of the interim implementation agreement relating to the consolidation of the Bokoni group debt and consequent reduction in its cost of borrowing ("the phase one agreement").

On 1 October, 2012 an unprotected strike commenced at Bokoni Platinum Mines ("Bokoni Mine") as a consequence of the strike contagion within the PGM sector in South Africa. As a result of the strike, approximately 2,500 employees at Bokoni Mine were dismissed and management is in the process of re-hiring with a view to re-commencing operations as soon as possible. No operations, other than essential services, have taken place at Bokoni Mine since commencement of the strike.

The Bokoni Mine's future operational plan and financing strategy is currently under review, having regard to the negative impact of the current strike action. The results of this review and its impact will be taken into consideration pursuant to the Company and Anglo American Platinum Ltd completing phase two of the Restructure Plan, anticipated to be finalized during the first quarter of 2013.

Once the negotiations and definitive agreements relating to phase two of the Restructure Plan have been completed, the Company will publish the financial effects of the Restructure Plan and post its circular to shareholders seeking necessary approvals for its implementation.
