Plateau Mineral Development Announces Its Live Metals Trading Platform With Estimated Market of $100,000,000 in Transactions Over the First 12 Months

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) - Plateau Mineral Development "Plateau Metals" (PINKSHEETS: PMDP) announced today its live gold and silver trading platform as part of its 2011 business plan roll-out. The company's trading platform is part of its previously published business operational plans.

The new electronic market will allow small and large precious metal traders to purchase and store silver and gold bullion using an online secure interface. The Company has combined various 'white label' agreements with market trading service providers, banks, and bullion storage providers. The Company will achieve further cost and operational efficiencies through offering metal in its direct possession or in transit across its multiple transship/refining routes.

The Company will leverage its preferred pricing on metal acquisition to offer customers worldwide with savings, superior delivery, and storage options. Because all transactions and metals are fully insured and underwritten by the company's surety operations, customers are assured of superior pricing, delivery, bullion delivery, and audit guarantees.

The trading platform is scheduled to open, worldwide, on April 30, 2011.

The Company will soon announce a private-label trading-partner program allowing both industry and financial partners to leverage the Company's infrastructure and offer a trading platform under their own brand to their customers. This planned program is part of the Company's international expansion plans through relationship with industry and financial institutions.
