Platinex Inc. (CSE: PTX) (Frankfurt 9PX) (the " Company " or " Platinex ") is pleased to provide an update on the ongoing exploration program at Shining Tree Gold Project, Ontario which consists of a mechanical stripping and channel sample program in the Caswell area, geological mapping and sampling and a geochemical till sampling program in advance of IP surveys and a drilling program.

In this work, Platinex has located a previously unknown shear zone north of the known extent of the Ribble Vein. This shear zone trends at 060° and two grab samples collected along it have returned 5.18 g Au/t and 3.69 g Au/t. Current interpretation of sheared quartz-carbonate alteration zones on the eastern portion of its Caswell project (see map) have them trending in an ENE direction coinciding with subtle magnetic lows. This the new discovery provides evidence for the possible continuity between the Caswell and Ronda Mine areas thereby expanding the high potential area to to1800m by 700m.

The Ribble Vein is north-south trending and appears to be folded into a gentle S shaped feature by ENE trending shears zones. A.W. Beecham, 1994 1 noted in a quote by Percy Hopkins (a former Provincial geologist) that one of the best ore sections was on a cross-cut at 30m depth at approximately 060° which assayed 12.34g/t Au over 7.0m. In addition, Beecham noted another significant result was obtained in a channel sample on surface from a vein trending at 060° which assayed 9.09g/t Au over 5.4m.

James R. Trusler, Chairman and CEO of Platinex stated, "The Caswell Prospect is situated on the east side of a 3 km diameter circle of gold deposits and former producers where the Ridout-Tyrrell deformation zone intersects the major north-south trending Michiwakenda fault. The expanded sampling program on Caswell will yield both a view to the next steps on Caswell and the bigger picture. The channel sample results from the current program will be announced prior to commencement of the drill program."

Gold Trends 2021: Price Sheds 6 Percent Following Record 2020

Click here to read the previous gold trends article.

After soaring to an all-time high of US$2,058.40 per ounce during 2020, gold has faced headwinds in 2021.

Values for the yellow metal started the year at US$1,898, but the level proved unsustainable and gold had sunk to US$1,700 — still its year-to-date low — by the end of the first quarter.

Positivity in the second quarter pushed the precious metal to its annual high in May, when the price touched US$1,903; however, it soon retreated to the US$1,760 range a few weeks later.
