Stillwater Mining Company is engaged in the development, extraction, processing, refining and marketing of palladium, platinum and associated metals (platinum group metals) (PGMs) from a geological formation in south central Montana known as the J-M Reef and from the recycling of spent catalytic converters. Associated by-product metals at the Company's operations include minor amounts of gold, silver, nickel and copper. The Company conducts mining operations at the Stillwater Mine near Nye, Montana and at the East Boulder Mine near Big Timber, Montana. Both mines are located on the J-M Reef. It operates concentrating plants at each mining operation to upgrade mined production to a concentrate form. The Company operates a smelter and base metal refinery at Columbus, Montana, at which it further upgrades the mined production to a PGM-rich filter cake. The filter cake is shipped to third-party custom refiners for final refining before being sold to third parties.
