JOHANNESBURG ( - Platinum junior miner Eastern Platinum (Eastplats) and gold miner Great Basin Gold (GBG) reported on Wednesday that they would be included in the Standard and Poor's Canadian global mining index (S&P/TSX) at market open on March 22.

GBG would also be added to the S&P/TSX global gold index, which was designed to track global gold companies and offered investors broad exposure to the world's gold markets.

GBG CEO Ferdi Dippenaar said that the listings would compliment the company's listing in the S&P/TSX composite index, and the S&P/TSX small cap index.

He added that the inclusion showed recognition of the significant progress and growth that GBG had achieved to date.

Eastplats president and CEO Ian Rozier said that the company was pleased to return to the S&P/TSX global mining index, which it said was an important benchmark on the TSX.
