Platinex Inc. (CSE: PTX) (Frankfurt 9PX) (the " Company " or " Platinex ") reports that the first 38 samples of till collected at surface this year have been processed for gold grain content by Overburden Drilling Management ("ODM") of Nepean, Ontario which returned a high value of 207 gold grains in one sample of which 116 grains are pristine and modified. The average grain count in the 38 samples is 21. ( See magnified pictures of gold grains in samples 45302 and 45303 below )
This is a continuation of a program on the core 16% of the property previously commenced by Platinex. Highly anomalous gold in till results were reported in 446 samples which still warrant follow up drilling. The current program is concentrating on testing the unexplored 21 km strike length of the Ridout Tyrrell Deformation Zone. More samples have been delivered to the ODM lab for processing and due to the mild winter to date till sample collection is still ongoing on the property.
James R. Trusler, Chairman and CEO of Platinex Inc. stated, "While we have a number of drill targets stemming from previous gold in till work, a different approach has been taken to establish exploration priorities this time which blends the approach of our exploration team with advice from the Finance Committee. We believe the collection of 21 former prospects and underground developments will enable the Company access to establishing near surface resources in the near term; we also know that we are on 21 km of an unexplored major deformation zone that hosts Caldas's Juby deposit to the east and the Cote Gold deposit of IAMGOLD and Sumitomo to the west. This area on Platinex's property has the potential to host a tier 1 gold deposit. Gold in till exploration provides the best exploration/prospecting tool to initiate the discovery of such a deposit."
The information presented in this news release has been reviewed and approved by James R. Trusler, P.Eng., Chairman and CEO of the Company and the Qualified Person for exploration at the Shining Tree property, as defined by National Instrument 43-101 ‘Standards for Disclosure for Mineral Projects'.
