As managing director of a company which has lost 99% of its stockmarket value in 18 years, Irish mining entrepreneur Christian Schaffalitzky is cheerfully upbeat about prospects as AIM dog Eurasia Mining (EUA) prepares to take its Urals Alluvial Platinum (UAP) project in western Russia into production, at long last, next year. The company, whose shares have crumbled from a 1996 float price of 310p to a barely visible 0.58p now, is also looking for partners to develop another, larger Russian palladium and platinum project at Kola, south of Murmansk near the Finnish border.
