A PurePlay Note is the instrument used to embody a sale of unmined minerals held in Reserves by a miner.

We’ll use gold as a proxy for minerals for the sake of simplicity but a PurePlay Note will be possible for virtually any minerals including oil and gas.



Inevitably, with a new and innovative product, the market takes some time to mature and reach a stage where issuers are comfortable with the level of PurePlays that they can handle without strain on their production resources, and Investors are comfortable with assessing the risk and reward balance of a particular issue.


PurePlay® Case Study

Diversified Mining Corporation (“DMC”)

A Practical Case Study using PurePlay® Instruments to convert a highly indebted mining corporation into a secure debt free entity.

DMC has $4bn in debt and is paying an average interest rate of 5.75% on that debt.


The second void is the inability, at the moment, of commodity Producers to tap into their largest source of value, their Proven and Probable Reserves, without first mining and refining them. Commodity Producers have to invest a significant portion of their capital into the acquisition and development of Proven and Probable Reserves. Proven and Probable Reserves have been scientifically established to exist and have been estimated in quantity and quality to a very high degree of certainty.

The PurePlay® Instrument recognises the factual existence of the Proven and Probable Reserves and the high degree of certainty in estimating the quantity and quality of the Proven and Probable Reserves.  Through PurePlay® Instruments the Producer is able to offer a fungible portion of these Reserves for sale to Investors at or slightly above spot.

Producers provide Investors annually with sufficient information regarding the establishment of the Proven and Probable Reserves together with a suitable technical “audit” of these scientifically established facts for Investors to satisfy themselves as to the quantity and quality of the Proven and Probable Reserves of the Producer.

The PurePlay® Instrument unlocks the value of the Proven and Probable Reserves for both Investors and Producers. Unlocking the value is not restricted to only the high value low bulk commodities, but is achieved across all fungible minerals in or on the crust of the earth. Investors can now get access to a cost efficient investment in anything from gold, platinum, palladium, rhodium or silver to nickel, lead, zinc, copper, molybdenum, oil and even thermal coal.

The cost efficiency of storing the Investor’s minerals in Reserves form is unsurpassed as a vaulting system. Nature’s Vault™ is what we call the mineral Reserves of fungible mineral Producers to describe this very unique standing of mineral Reserves.

The third void in the market is the inability to apply the gold exchange traded fund model to any minerals other than high value low bulk minerals. This is a challenge which is easily overcome through the use of Nature’s Vault™.  The cost efficiency of PurePlay® Instruments is at 100% cost efficiency (ie zero costs) irrespective of the mineral in which the PurePlay® Instrument is denominated.
