Platinex Inc. (CSE: PTX) (Frankfurt: 9PX) ("Platinex" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Endurance Elements Inc. ("Endurance Elements") has acquired, through low-cost claim staking, 198 mining claims contiguous with existing claims at the W2 Copper-Nickel-PGE Project (the "W2 Project" or "W2") in Ontario's Ring of Fire (see press release dated January 17, 2022). The new claims cover 3,897 hectares (39.0 km 2 ) and represent a 42.7% increase in the total W2 land package which now stands at 13,031 hectares (130.3 km 2 ).

The new claims cover potential mineralized extensions of Cu-Ni-PGE targets within the existing W2 land package. The targets described below are located 10-30 km east of the PGE horizon area of W2 where historical exploration work and drilling focused. These new targets are highly prospective and have never been drill tested.

The attached image provides an overview of the new claims and targets within the W2 Project.

T-5: Claims were added on the east and west to cover downdip extensions of the target zone. T-5 has a magnetic anomaly that is similar in shape to the magnetic anomaly at Noront Resources' Eagle's Nest Ni-Cu-PGE deposit. T-5 has a mushroom shape with strong conductors in the cap.

T-6: Claims were staked on the northeastern and northwestern sides of the Cu-Ni-PGE target zone. The northeastern extension of a fault was also staked. T-6 has a magnetic anomaly that is twice the size of the magnetic anomaly at the Eagle's Nest deposit and the same mushroom shape with strong conductors in the cap.

T-7: Claims were staked along the northeastern and southwestern sides of the magnetic anomaly to cover potential mineralized extensions of the Cu-Ni-PGE target. T-7 is a magnetic anomaly with conductors located in a potential feeder dike of the Lansdowne House Igneous Complex (LHIC). T-5 and T-6 are also within the potential feeder dike zone.

T-8: Claims were added at T-8 to expand the area around several strong conductors near the southern end of a large magnetic anomaly associated with an intrusion. The conductors are of significant interest as their source could be Cu-Ni-PGE mineralization coming from the intrusion.

The new claims also increase coverage of the Lavoie Lake Shear Zone System (LSZS), which is a part of the regional transcrustal structure, the Stull-Wunnummin Fault Zone (SWFZ), and presents several shear-hosted gold targets on the W2 property. Several shear zone splays off the SWFZ host significant gold mineralization on Northern Superior's TPK property (25.87 g/t Au over 13.5 m) located just west of the W2 property.

At least two long linear magnetic highs with EM conductors flanked by low magnetics extend from T-5 several km to the west and likely represent shear zones. These interpreted shear zones extend to T-11, a folded magnetic high, and represent prospective shear-hosted gold targets. Additionally, a northeast-trending magnetic low extends southwesterly for approximately 9 km from T6 to the most southern property boundary and is interpreted to be a shear zone that also represents a prospective shear-hosted gold target. Finally, the magnetic lows in the south-central part of the magnetic anomaly near T-8 represent another prospective shear-hosted gold target.

Per the previously announced purchase and sale agreement between Endurance Elements Inc. and Springer Mineral Resources Corporation ("Springer"), the 198 mining are Additional Properties and subject to a 0.5% net smelter return (NSR) royalty in favour of Springer.

The Company has posted additional information on the new claims and additional information on the W2 Project in a presentation on its website ( www.platinex.com ).

The information presented in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Ike Osmani, P. Geo, a consulting geologist of the Company and James R. Trusler, P.Eng., Chairman of Platinex Inc. and both are considered a qualified person for exploration at the W2 project, as defined by National Instrument 43-101, Standards for Disclosure for Mineral Projects.

The goal of the company is to create shareholder value through the opportunistic acquisition, and discovery of strategically located projects in prolific Ontario mining camps. Platinex owns a 100% interest in the 225 km 2 Shining Tree gold property in the Abitibi region of Ontario, which is world-renowned for gold. The Shining Tree Project covers over 21 km of the Ridout-Tyrrell deformation zone that trends as far west as Newmont's Borden Mine, through the area of IAMGOLD's Cote Gold deposit, directly through Platinex's Shining Tree gold property, and across Aris Gold's Juby Project. In addition, Platinex owns a 100% ownership interest in the W2 Copper-Nickel-PGE Project. The W2 Project controls one of the major Oxford Stull Dome complexes and includes over 5 km of strike length of known near-surface Cu-Ni-PGE mineralization within a large (13,031 hectare or 130.3 km 2 ) land package located in the Ring of Fire. The Company also has royalties on gold, PGE, and base metal properties in Canada and Chile.

Platinex Announces Acquisition of Titanium-Vanadium Claims Adjacent to W2 Cu-Ni-PGE Project and Receipt of Government Grant for Shining Tree Gold Project

Platinex Announces Acquisition of Titanium-Vanadium Claims Adjacent to W2 Cu-Ni-PGE Project and Receipt of Government Grant for Shining Tree Gold Project

Platinex Inc. (CSE: PTX) (Frankfurt 9PX) ("Platinex" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Endurance Elements Inc. ("Endurance Elements"), has acquired additional mining claims adjacent to the W2 Copper-Nickel-PGE Project (the "W2 Project" or "W2") in the Ring of Fire in Ontario, Canada. The new claims combined with the existing claims cover an 8-10 km long, northeast-trending magnetic high (the "Bartman Lake North Magnetic High" or "BNMH") and include the area of a Titanium-Vanadium (Ti-V) discovery made by Aurora Platinum Corporation in 2001. See image.

The discovery drill hole LH01-10 bored in the BNMH intersected multiple intercepts of disseminated to massive titano-magnetite mineralization hosted within diorite-leucogabbro-anorthosite-gabbro-magnetite cumulate sequences. The three intercepts of semi-massive to massive titano-magnetite mineralization returned near economic grades of vanadium and titanium oxides (Mazur and Osmani 2002):

Platinex Announces Acquisition of Mining Claims at Shining Tree Gold Project

Platinex Announces Acquisition of Mining Claims at Shining Tree Gold Project

Platinex Inc. (CSE: PTX) (Frankfurt: 9PX) ("Platinex" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired 63 mining claims adjoining its Shining Tree Project through an agreement with Skead Holdings Ltd. ("Skead"). The acquisition increases the Shining Tree property holdings from 21,847 hectares (53,985 ac) to 23,219 hectares (57,375 ac) and covers area in the central western portion of the Project (see image).

The new acquisition covers some of the down dip extension and a prominent spur fault associated with the Ridout-Tyrrell Deformation Zone (RTDZ). The RTDZ is a trans-crustal structure, along which several world-class gold deposits are spatially and genetically associated. On the Shining Tree property, the RTDZ has been identified as the likely source of highly anomalous gold indications in a provincially significant gold dispersion train.

Platinex Announces Further Expansion of W2 Copper-Nickel-PGE Project

Platinex Announces Further Expansion of W2 Copper-Nickel-PGE Project

Platinex Inc. (CSE: PTX) (Frankfurt: 9PX) ("Platinex" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Endurance Elements Inc. ("Endurance Elements") has acquired 149 mining claims located along the western boundary of the W2 Copper-Nickel-PGE Project (the "W2 Project" or "W2") in Ontario's Ring of Fire (see press releases dated January 17, 2022 and January 27, 2022). The additional 2,932 hectares (29.3 km 2 ) of ground brings the W2 land package to 15,973 hectares (159.7 km 2 ). Endurance Elements holds a 100% interest in the W2 Project.

The W2 Project now covers approximately 80% of the layered mafic-ultramafic Lansdowne House Igneous Complex ("LHIC") which is highly prospective for copper-nickel (Cu-Ni) and reef-type platinum group element (PGE) deposits. The widespread Cu-Ni-PGE mineralization is delineated in at least seven significant mineralized zones within a 7.5 km long folded corridor. The common thread of strong Cu-Ni-PGE, Cr and Ti-V mineralization in the mafic ultramafic intrusions ringing the Oxford Stull Dome is suggestive of a common source, a very large magmatic system and therefore a potential significant abundance of the metals in each intrusion.
