Pana is an exploration and mining company, with platinum group metals properties in the Kola peninsula, north-western Russia.

Pana was set up in 1992 by the Geological Institute of the Kola Scientific Centre (KSC), a component body of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Co-founders include also other institutes at the KSC, the Lovozero district administration, and AO Apatit, a major phosphate rock producer in the Murmansk region. There is also direct non-Russian participation in Pana through Pomor Ltd, a UK-registered company, with private UK and Russian shareholders, which holds 10% of the shares of Pana, and through Pana's joint venture with Barrick Resources.

It is with great sadness that we record the death of Felix Mitrofanov in May 2014. He was the geologist who identified the Pana-Fedorova complex as one of the world's major PGM-bearing layered mafic igneous intrusions, and who led the scientific studies which established its importance and provided a detailed understanding of its geochemistry and mineralogy.
