Anooraq soon to be ‘Atlatsa’

[] — ANOORAQ said on Wednesday it would proceed with its proposed name change to Atlatsa Resources, following the approval of the move by the TSX Venture Exchange.

The rationale for the change is to reflect the “South African focus of the company” following the acquisition of Bokoni platinum mine in July 2009.

“‘Atlatsa’ is an African word meaning ‘to make prosperous’,” Anooraq said.

The process is expected to be completed on May 21.
