Platinex Enters Into Two Letter of Intent Agreements to Expand Shining Tree Property

TORONTO, Oct. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Platinex Inc. (CSE:PTX) (“Platinex” or the “Company”) announces that it has entered into Letters of Intent on acquiring two prospective claim groups adjoining its Shining Tree property in Churchill and MacMurchy Townships,  Ontario.  

The first Letter of Intent (‘LOI’) with Skead Holdings Ltd is with respect to 19 cell claims and one fractional claim. It is intended to include these claims in an existing royalty agreement (3% NSR) with Skead Holdings Ltd (“Skead”) and to provide Skead with staking costs of approximately $1,000. The LOI also calls for the inclusion of two legacy claims held solely by Platinex in the Skead royalty agreement.  The arrangement is intended to be concluded upon Platinex completing a financing which is currently in progress.

The second LOI with a partnership represented by Joe B. Hinzer concerns 8 cell claims in Churchill Township.  This LOI contemplates entering into a definitive agreement to acquire 100% interest in the property (“The Dirks-Hinzer Property”) subject to an agreed royalty, reimbursement for past exploration and completion of a favourable due diligence by Platinex. The transaction is to be completed after Platinex completes a financing currently in progress and, at Platinex’s option, may be paid in Platinex common shares.

The current size of the Shining Tree property is 14,967ha or 36,984 acres. Giving consideration to completion of the two acquisitions the property size will increase to 15,532ha or 38,379 acres.

The Dirks-Hinzer Property has been progressively explored for over twenty years. Of particular interest are several IP anomalies coinciding with a northwest trending shear zone where a single channel sample returned 1,130 ppb gold over a sample width of 6.3m. These results are unqualified according to NI43-101 Standards of Disclosure.
Mr. James R. Trusler, Interim CEO of Platinex Inc. stated, “Platinex is currently taking several initiatives to expand its Shining Tree property, to attract quality mining industry talent, and to raise money through equity financing and senior partnerships.”
