Mr. Greg Ferron, newly appointed director, stated, “Platinex has a unique position in the Shining Tree gold camp, having the largest gold-focused property package and an exciting exploration program ahead. I look forward to working with Jim and his team on their upcoming exploration program and analysing other strategic opportunities before the company.”
