Canplats Announces Filing of Supplemental Circular in Connection With the Goldcorp Transaction

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 14, 2010) - Canplats Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE:CPQ) ("Canplats" or the "Company") announces that it has prepared a supplemental management information circular (the "Supplemental Circular") in connection with the amended transaction with Goldcorp Inc. ("Goldcorp"), as described in the Company's press release dated December 29, 2009. The Supplemental Circular and a new form of letter of transmittal (the "Revised Letter of Transmittal") have been posted on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval ("SEDAR") website at and the Company's website at The Supplement Circular and Revised Letter of Transmittal are expected to be mailed to securityholders on or about January 18, 2010.

As described in the Company's press release dated January 8, 2010, the meeting of holders of Canplats common shares, options and warrants called to consider the proposed business combination between Canplats and Goldcorp has been adjourned to 2:00 p.m. (Vancouver time) on January 28, 2010 (the "Adjourned Meeting"). The Adjourned Meeting will be held at the Pan Pacific Vancouver, Ocean View Room, located at 300 – 999 Canada Place, Vancouver, British Columbia. The record date for determination of the securityholders entitled to receive notice of, and vote at, the Adjourned Meeting has been fixed as 5:00 p.m. (Vancouver time) on December 14, 2009.

The Board of Directors of Canplats recommends that Canplats securityholders vote in favour of the resolution approving the amended transaction with Goldcorp at the Adjourned Meeting. The Supplemental Circular sets out the reasons for such recommendation and also contains other information concerning the amended transaction. Securityholders are encouraged to read the Supplemental Circular carefully in its entirety.

The deadline for the deposit of proxies for use at the Adjourned Meeting of securityholders is 2:00 p.m. (Vancouver time) on January 26, 2010. Voting instruction forms will have to be submitted earlier than forms of proxy. Securityholders who have already properly completed and deposited a proxy or submitted a voting instruction form do not have to take any further action to vote their securities, unless they wish to change their voting instructions. Securityholders who have completed and deposited a form of proxy or submitted a voting instruction form but wish to change their voting instructions should complete and deposit a new proxy or submit a new voting instruction form reflecting the change in voting instruction either by telephone or internet and are encouraged to contact Kingsdale Shareholder Services Inc. (in North America, by telephone (toll-free) at (888) 518-6812) for assistance in doing so.

Registered holders of Canplats common shares should also be aware that, regardless of whether they have completed and delivered a letter of transmittal in the form previously mailed by Canplats, a Revised Letter of Transmittal must be completed and signed and, together with the corresponding share certificates, delivered to the depositary in order to receive the cash consideration and shares of Camino Minerals Corporation under the amended transaction with Goldcorp. If a registered holder of Canplats common shares has submitted share certificates to the depositary with the previously distributed form of letter of transmittal, such share certificates will not be returned to them (unless the transaction with Goldcorp is not completed); however, such registered shareholders are still required to complete, sign and deliver a Revised Letter of Transmittal.
