NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 6, 2011) - Plateau Mineral Development, Inc ("Plateau Metals"). (PINKSHEETS: PMDP) announced it executed a new gold trans-shipment and transaction handling agreement valued at $25,000,000 per annum. The agreement is for three years and calls for monthly international shipping and handling of gold dust from South Africa to the USA to be refined into 24K certified bars for re-export.

This agreement continues the company's 2010 current consolidated revenues (profitable) of approximately USD$24,000,000. The agreement also utilizes the Company's surety services guaranteeing and fully underwriting timely arrival and party payments.

The company recently changed its executive teams and entire operational strategy and divested itself of all unprofitable operations. The changes were accomplished with a private change of control. The Company will not change its name and the transaction does not involve a reverse-split of its stock. No new shares of common stock have, or will be, issued in order to complete transaction. The current issued and outstanding shares (approx. 4.7 billion) remain the same as pre-transaction.

Investors will receive complete disclosures and financial statements filed on or before 30 January 2011.

The Company intends to complete its USA-compliant financial audits and register its securities with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Company will continue to disclose its projections, operational plans, and marketing strategies in the days to follow.
