TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 3, 2016) - Platinex Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PTX) (the "Company") has entered into an agreement to purchase 70 claim units (1,120 ha or 2,800 acres) in the Shining Tree area located south of Timmins, Ontario. The agreement provides for Platinex to acquire 100% interest in 10 claims located in Churchill, MacMurchy and Fawcett Townships, in Ontario by issuing 398,000 shares of Platinex Inc.

The recent Shining Tree gold property acquisitions have increased the project size to 286 claim units (4,576 ha or 11,440 acres). The Shining Tree gold property covers many historic workings, and gold showings within an underexplored area. All weather logging roads provide year round access.

President and CEO, James R. Trusler states that, "Platinex has been working hard to provide shareholder value by taking advantage of a number of acquisition opportunities in a historic gold camp. The access and infrastructure in the area will allow Platinex to revisit these old showings at low cost, with potentially high reward if we can make new near surface gold discoveries."

The agreement is subject to board and regulatory approvals respecting the acquisitions and associated proposed share issuances.

Platinex is constructing a new website, which will launch in November. Currently public documents for Platinex are available on SEDAR.
