I know that a lot of Stocko readers like Sylvania Platinum Sylvania Platinum (LON:SLP) which is a £160m market capitalisation company that extracts Platinum Group Metals (“PGMs”) including platinum, palladium and rhodium from mine dumps. The shares in Sylvania Platinum (LON:SLP) were around 20p in January 2019, and are around 62p now. (I hold)
