Stillwater Mining Company is engaged in the development, extraction, processing, smelting, and refining of palladium, platinum, and associated metals (platinum group metals (PGMs)) produced from a geological formation in south-central Montana known as the J-M Reef and from the recycling of spent catalytic converters. The company is also engaged in expanding its mining operations on the J-M Reef, and holds the Marathon PGM-copper property adjacent to Lake Superior in northern Ontario, Canada and the Altar copper-gold property in the province of San Juan, Argentina. In addition to PGMs, the company's operations produce associated by-product metals, including nickel, copper and minor amounts of gold, silver, and rhodium. As of December 31, 2013, the company had proven and probable ore reserves at its Montana operations of approximately 48.5 million tons with an average combined in situ palladium and platinum grade of 0.45 ounces per ton of ore (0.35 ounces of palladium and 0.10 ounces of platinum per ton of ore). Operations The company’s current mining and processing operations are located in south-central Montana. It conducts mining and milling operations at the Stillwater Mine near Nye, Montana and at the East Boulder Mine south of Big Timber, Montana. Both mines are located on mine claims that follow the apex of the J-M Reef. The company operates a smelter and base metal refinery, and recycling facilities, in Columbus, Montana. Stillwater Mine The company conducts underground mining operations at its wholly-owned Stillwater Mine, near Nye, Montana. The Stillwater Mine facility accesses, extracts and processes PGM ores from the eastern portion of the J-M Reef using mine openings located in the Stillwater River Valley. In addition, the company owns and maintains ancillary buildings that contain the concentrator, shop, warehouse, changing facilities, headframe, hoist house, paste plant, water treatment facility, storage facilities, and office. All surface structures and tailings management facilities are located within the 2,475 acre Stillwater Mine Operating Permit area, which is administrated collectively by the Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the United States Forest Service (USFS). The mine is located approximately 85 miles southwest of Billings, Montana and is accessed by a paved road. East Boulder Mine The East Boulder Mine is located in Sweet Grass County, Montana, approximately 32 miles south of the town of Big Timber and is accessed by a public road. The East Boulder Mine is permitted independently of the Stillwater Mine and comprises a second distinct mining operation accessing the western portion of the J-M Reef. The mine consists of underground mine development and surface support facilities, including a concentrator, shop and warehouse, changing facilities, storage facilities, office and tailings management facility. All mine facilities are wholly-owned and operated by the company. Surface facilities for the East Boulder Mine are situated on unpatented mill site claims maintained on federal lands located within the Gallatin National Forest and administered by the USFS and the Montana DEQ. All surface facilities, including the tailings management complex, are located within a 980 acre operating permit area. Metallurgical Complex Smelter The company owns and operates a smelter facility located in Columbus, Montana. The smelter facility consists of two electric furnaces, two top blown rotary converters (TBRCs), a matte granulator, and gas handling and solution regeneration systems. Base Metal Refinery The company’s base metal refinery is located on property the company owns adjacent to the smelter in Columbus, Montana. The base metal refinery utilizes the patented Sherritt Process, whereby a sulfuric acid solution dissolves out the nickel, copper, cobalt and any residual iron from the PGM-bearing converter matte. The base metal refinery produces a palladium, platinum and rhodium-rich filter cake, which also contains minor amounts of gold and silver.
