Safe Haven

(1888PressRelease) Global macroeconomic issues caused gold to eclipse platinum early this
week as investors rushed to buy gold bullion as a safe haven following the volatility in the stock

(1888PressRelease) MIAMI, FL - Concerns about the state of the economy, both nationally and
internationally are mounting a two-pronged attack on the gold to platinum ratio; on the one hand
economic concerns boost gold on investment demand while, on the other hand, these same
concerns raise doubt about future levels of industrial demand for platinum.

The recent debacle of the US debt crisis, the European sovereign debt crisis and S&P's
downgrade of the US's triple-A credit rating - with its resulting effect on the commodity markets
- have combined to send investors rushing towards gold bullion as a safe haven. At the same
time, those metals that see most of their demand from industry may appear less attractive amid
fears of a double dip recession. Platinum is rare; supplies of ore are limited and it is used
extensively in the jewelry industry. However, it also relies heavily on the automotive industry
where it is used in the manufacture of catalytic converters.

"Certainly gold is the precious metal of choice at the present time," says Bill Hionas, CEO of
Pan American Metals of Miami. "Gold has historically acted as a measure against which other
currencies are judged and is often the favored choice for investors looking for a hedge against
any economic crisis. With the economy currently highly volatile, gold is understandably the
investment of choice."

Bill Hionas leads Pan American Metals of Miami, which trades in gold, platinum, silver and
palladium. Investors can take delivery of their precious metals bullion or choose to have it stored
in a repository for safe keeping.
