                         ("Jubilee" or the "Company")

                                      

                               Issue of Equity



Jubilee, the  AIM  and JSE  quoted  mine-to-metal specialist,  is  pleased  to 
announce a conditional placing  of up to 20,175,439new  ordinary shares of  1 
pence each in the Company (the "Placing  Shares") at a price of 8.55 pence  to 
raise up to GBP 1.725 million (the "Placing").



The Placing  Shares have  been placed  jointly by  Shore Capital  Stockbrokers 
Limited and  finnCap  Limited  as  agents  to  the  Company,  subject  to  the 
conditions of a  placing agreement which  include admission of  the shares  to 
trading on AIM market of the  London Stock Exchange ("AIM") which is  expected 
to occur on 19 October 2012.



The proceeds  of  the  Placing  will be  used,  together  with  existing  cash 
resources, to support  growth within the  Company's strategic business  areas, 
through which Jubilee is implementing its mine-to-metals strategy.

The Placing Shares will rank pari passu  with the existing shares in issue  of 
Jubilee.



In addition to the Placing, the Company, further to the announcement dated  27 
September  2012,  is  issuing  3,863,276  new  ordinary  shares  for  £384,900 
(ZAR5,255,600) as the first tranche of consideration for the acquisition of an
additional 19%  interest in  Power  Alt (Pty)  Ltd. Additionally,  Jubilee  is 
issuing 434,690 new ordinary  shares to a party  for £38,975 (ZAR518,890)  and 
625,000 new ordinary shares to a second party for £57,895 (ZAR766,710) in part
consideration of the  settlement agreement with  the shareholders of  Jubilee 
Smelting and Refining (Pty) Ltd ("JSR") to acquire 100% of JSR.



Following the  above share  issues and  the Placing,  the total  issued  share 
capital of the  Company will  be 313,220,211.  The Company  holds no  ordinary 
shares in  treasury. Therefore,  following the  placing, the  total number  of 
voting rights in the Company will be 313,330,211.



Leon Coetzer, Chief Executive Officer of Jubilee Platinum said: "The Board  of 
Jubilee is pleased with  the continued support of  our shareholders while  the 
addition of  new  investors  following the  Placing  further  strengthens  our 
shareholder base."
