Eastplats Aware of Notice of Application

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 30, 2011) - Eastern Platinum Limited (TSX:ELR)(AIM:ELR)(JSE:EPS) ("Eastplats" or "the Company") reports that it has become aware that the law firm of Siskinds LLP of London, Ontario, has filed a "Notice of Application" under the Class Action Proceedings Act, 1992, in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice against the Company and three of its directors and officers. The Notice of Application seeks permission of the Court to grant leave or permission to commence a lawsuit under the Securities Act of Ontario and other provinces in respect to certain alleged breaches of disclosure obligations. The Company and its officers and directors have not been served with any court documents.

The proposed plaintiff, Mr. Brian Bradley still requires permission, or leave of the court, in order to proceed with a case. After reviewing the documents filed with the Court, the Company is of the view that the allegations are completely without merit and intends to vigorously defend the proposed lawsuit.

Total shares issued and outstanding: 908,187,807
