The New Ivanhoe Mines Begins Trading Under the Symbol IVN on Toronto Stock Exchange

07:30 EDT Tuesday, September 03, 2013

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 3, 2013) - Ivanhoe Mines Ltd. (TSX:IVN) (formerly Ivanplats) (TSX:IVP) Executive Chairman Robert Friedland and Chief Executive Officer Lars-Eric Johansson announced that the company's common shares will begin trading under the new symbol IVN on the Toronto Stock Exchange at today's market opening.

The company announced on August 28 that it had changed its name from Ivanplats to Ivanhoe Mines to make the transition to a corporate identity that more broadly reflects the fact that Ivanplats has grown and evolved in recent years to become much more than a singularly focused platinum-group metals company.

About the new Ivanhoe Mines

Ivanhoe Mines (TSX:IVN) (formerly Ivanplats) (TSX:IVP), with offices in Canada, the United Kingdom and South Africa, is advancing and developing its three principal projects:

  • The Kamoa copper discovery in a previously unknown extension of the Central African Copperbelt in the DRC's Province of Katanga.
  • The Platreef Discovery of platinum-group elements, nickel, copper, gold and rhodium on the Northern Limb of the Bushveld Complex in South Africa.
  • The historic, high-grade Kipushi zinc-copper-germanium-precious metals mine, also on the Copperbelt in the DRC and now being dewatered and upgraded to support a future return to production of copper, zinc and other metals following a care-and-maintenance program conducted between 1993 and 2011.

Ivanhoe Mines also is evaluating other opportunities as part of its objective to become a broadly based international mining company.
