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 ease of trading, pricing and cost efficiency for Investors are huge advantages. Producer Issuers of PurePlay® Instruments will find that the product can be deployed with exceptional versatility and flexibility to harmonise the needs of the Producer Issuer with its mining activities while still meeting the needs of Investors.

The individual issuing Producers will supply PurePlay® Instruments to the market in accordance with their individual needs and the combined issuance of all Producers will supply the market. Investors will therefore have a choice of instruments from different Producers and can match their risk profiles to those issuances most suitable to them.

Producers can issue with an objective to minimise commodity price risks and to maximise liquidity advantages when liquidity is more important or can reverse it to concentrate price risks for hedging purposes while using the liquidity advantages to mitigate the risks and costs of hedging the commodity price risks. Producers can also have alternative issuing strategies anywhere between these two extremes. We explain the alternative strategies in more detail on the “PurePlay® Instruments for Producers” page.
