The TSX does not accept responsibility for the accuracy of this release. Report to Shareholders Comaplex Minerals Corp (Comaplex or the Company) is pleased to report its operating and financial results for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2009. Comaplex continued to make significant progress during the third quarter of 2009 in advancing its high-grade Meliadine West gold project towards completion of a Feasibility Study and a production decision thereafter. The Company continues to be very encouraged by the progress and results obtained to date. Strong drilling results and robust gold prices have assisted in increasing share value for Comaplex. The higher pricing environment continues to provide additional incentive for the rapid advancement of the Meliadine project and will result in less dilution to existing shareholders when future financings are completed. Financial and Budgeting Comaplex's working capital position at September 30, 2009 was approximately $33.3 million, including the value of liquid investments of approximately $5.5 million. During the third quarter, Comaplex completed a private placement for 5,530,000 common shares at a price of $4.25 per common share for gross proceeds of $23,502,500 ($22.7 million net). The proceeds will be used for the further exploration and development of the Meliadine properties and for general corporate purposes. Comaplex has completed its 2009 Meliadine West exploration program which consisted of the completion of a preliminary assessment during the first quarter of 2009, a 23,600 meter drill program to increase and upgrade its gold resource and the commencement of studies required for a Feasibility Study which will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2009. Comaplex expects to begin initiation of a full Feasibility Study during the first quarter of 2010. The current working capital, anticipated cash flow from oil and gas operations and investment income are more than adequate to cover all planned expenditures for the remainder of the year and provides the necessary financing for the Company in 2010 to complete Feasibility and if positive, obtain permitting to commence with the development of facilities. Meliadine West Project Update An aggressive exploration program was completed on the Meliadine West property in 2009 with approximately 85 percent of the $13.9 million capital expenditure budget being spent on this property. The 2009 drilling program of 23,600 meters was completed in mid-September with 109 holes drilled consisting of 33 holes (2,712 meters) in F Zone, 35 holes (16,732 meters) in Tiriganiaq, 16 holes (3,013 meters) in reconnaissance and 25 geotechnical holes (1,143 meters). The 2009 program results continue to underscore the high-quality nature of the Meliadine West property and its exploration upside. Drilling in the Western Deeps portion of the Tiriganiaq gold deposit was very successful with additional gold mineralization outlined in the 1255 lode and delineation of multiple mineralized surfaces in the 1150 series of lodes. Gold mineralization in the 1153 lode has been extended over more than 800 meters of plunge/strike length with a gold tenor comparable to the 1255 lode. Additional mineralized surfaces in the 1154 and 1152 lodes are also expected to add to the resource base. All of the lodes are open down plunge to the west and drilling in the Western Deeps also intersected strong gold mineralization in several new lodes that will be targets for delineation drilling in 2010. F Zone drilling was undertaken to increase the open pit resource base in the zone with a goal of moving as much of the potential open pit resources as possible to the indicated category for inclusion in the Feasibility study. The assay results were very positive with widening of existing mineralization and addition of new open pittable zones in the deposit. Meliadine East Project Update Drilling results from the 2009 drilling program for the Discovery deposit were recently released. The Discovery deposit is located approximately 15 kilometers east of the Tiriganiaq gold deposit, located on the Meliadine West property and is owned 50 percent by Comaplex and 50 percent by Meliadine Resources Ltd., who is the operator. The 2009 drilling program at Meliadine East was concentrated on the Discovery gold deposit with the primary goal of testing the margins of the potential open pit resources in the deposit. A total of 3,007 meters in 24 drill holes were completed, including ten geotechnical holes. Further evaluation work is presently being conducted on this property. Note: Detailed drill results from the 2009 programs at both Meliadine West and Meliadine East were press released as results were obtained and can be accessed on SEDAR or the Company's website at www.comaplex.com. Interim Studies Golder Associates is presently in the process of processing and compiling geotechnical, geochemical and environmental data completed on the two gold deposits in the Meliadine West (Tiriganiaq and F Zone) and on the Discovery deposit on the Meliadine East property. These studies are required and will be used in the Feasibility Study and the regulatory/permitting documentation. Comaplex is nearing completion of a Preliminary Project Description (PPD) for the regulators. Comaplex anticipates filing this document in the fourth quarter of 2009 which represents the first major step in permitting the Meliadine gold project. Future Resource Estimates Comaplex will incorporate the 2009 drill results into updated resource estimates for the F Zone and Tiriganiaq deposits at Meliadine West. The Company also plans to complete an updated resource estimate for the Discovery deposit on Meliadine East and new resource estimates on the Wolf and Pump gold deposits on the Meliadine West property. Comaplex has not released resource estimates on either of these deposits although they have undergone considerable drilling by Western Mining Corporation in the latter half of the 1990's. This work will form the basis for drill testing of the two deposits in 2010. Comaplex anticipates releasing these updated and new resource estimates prior to the end of the fourth quarter of 2009. Outlook Comaplex continues to rapidly advance the project towards completion of Feasibility and permitting applications. Present studies are proceeding as planned and should be completed as scheduled in 2009. The Company is adequately financed to complete Feasibility and permitting.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------


The mineral revenue decrease of $481,000 for the first nine months of 2009 compared to the first nine months of 2008, was mainly due to a combination of lower interest rates on cash invested and reduced cash balances. Revenues from mineral operations in the third quarter of 2009 decreased from the second quarter of 2009 ($18,000). This decrease is attributable to a lower interest rate on an advance of $12,000,000 to Bonterra Energy Corp. (see related party section). This rate of Canadian Chartered Bank prime less 0.25 percent is substantially higher than rates which could have been obtained from banks on secure investments such as BA's or GIC's with banks. Gross revenue from the Company's petroleum and natural gas properties for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 decreased compared to both the three months ended June 30, 2009 and the nine months ended September 30, 2008 due to decreases in commodity prices for natural gas and lower production volumes. On February 1, 2009, the operator of one of the Company's oil and gas properties unilaterally stopped allocating natural gas production (approximately 55 MCF per day) to the Company based on their interpretation of the unit agreement. It is the Company's position that their interpretation of the agreement is incorrect and Comaplex should continue to receive its natural gas production. No amount of the natural gas in dispute has been recorded as sales from this property for the months of February 2009 to September 2009. The Company has filed an objection with the operator outlining the Company's position and will actively defend its position through what ever legal options it has. Until the matter is resolved, no amounts will be accrued in respect of this production.

The Company anticipates an approximate 12 percent annual decline rate in 2009 from its existing production. The decline rate for the first nine months of 2009 was partially offset from production from drilling on the Garrington Elkton property. The above mentioned dispute will also impact production volumes by 10 BOE per day until the situation is resolved.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Crown royalties for the first nine months of 2009 decreased by $489,000 from the first nine months of 2008. The decrease was due to the adjustment on the Garrington property ($66,000 crown royalty credit adjustment in the first quarter of 2009) as well as the impact from the new Albert Crown Royalty Regime. Low commodity prices combined with lower production volumes has significantly reduced the amount of royalties payable to the Province of Alberta. Crown royalties for the third quarter of 2009 increased by $40,000 over the second quarter of 2009. The increase was due to crown royalty adjustments in Q2 2009 for capital allowance on the Garrington gas plant and higher liquid prices in Q3 2009. The decrease in gross overriding royalties for first three quarters of 2009 over the three quarters of 2008 is due to decreased commodity prices on production from wells subject to gross overriding royalties.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Production costs for the first nine months of 2009 over the first nine months of 2008 decreased by $108,000. The decrease relates primarily to lower production volumes. The increase in Q3 2009 production costs over the second quarter of 2009 was due to a $143,000 thirteen month equalization adjustment relating to prior years by the operator of the Harmattan Elkton gas plant.



General and Administrative (G&A) Costs

Total G&A 299 484 323 1,125 1,116
-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Mineral division G&A for the first nine months of 2009 over the first nine months of 2008 increased by $21,000. This was mainly due to increased Q2 costs relating to continuous disclosure costs, investor relations costs, software costs and employee benefit costs relating to a reassessment of two of the Company's contract personal. The preceding increases in the first three quarters of 2009 versus 2008 G&A costs was partially offset by an $82,000 provision for bad debts in 2008 compared to a $3,000 provision in 2009. G&A costs related to the mineral division decreased by $184,000 from Q3 2009 to Q2 2009 due to the above reasons. Oil and gas division G&A costs have remained relatively unchanged. Foreign Exchange Loss (Gain) The foreign exchange gain decreased by $97,000 for the first nine months of 2009 compared to the same period in 2008. The loss (gain) on foreign exchange results from fluctuations in the exchange rate between Canadian and U.S. dollars on U.S. funds held in an interest bearing cash account. This reduction also was attributable to a significant reduction in the U.S. cash position in the first three quarters of 2009 compared to the first three quarters of 2008. Stock-Based Compensation Stock-based compensation is a statistically calculated value representing the estimated expense of issuing employee stock options. The Company records a compensation expense over the vesting period based on the fair value of options granted to employees, directors and consultants. Stock-based compensation increased to $727,000 in the first nine months of 2009 from $700,000 for the first nine months of 2008. The increase was due primarily to the granting of 731,000 stock options in September, 2008, with the majority of the stock-based compensation being recognized in the first year after issuance. As of September 30, 2009, the Company had $760,000 of unamortized stock-based compensation to be expensed over the next two years.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------


The increase in depletion, depreciation and accretion expense for the nine months of 2009 compared with the first nine months of 2008 was due primarily to $301,000 of depreciation related to tangible mining equipment purchased during the fourth quarter of 2008. No mineral property abandonment costs were incurred in the first nine months of 2009. The Company reviews the carrying value of its mineral properties on an ongoing basis and reduces the cost of properties if it is determined that the property values are lower than the property cost. Income Tax Expense Comaplex has no current income tax expense. Comaplex has sufficient tax pools to ensure that no current income taxes are payable. The tax pool balances at September 30, 2009 totalled $124,487,000 and consist of the following pool balances.

Net earnings (loss) (397) (984) 95 (1,713) 1,794
-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Net earnings (loss) for the first nine months of 2009 decreased by $3,507,000 from the first nine months of 2008. The reduction was mainly due to future income tax adjustments, reduced oil and gas sales resulting from lower natural gas commodity prices as well as reduced interest income and increased depreciation costs relating to the mining equipment purchased in the fourth quarter of 2008. Net loss decreased in Q3 2009 compared to Q2 2009 mostly due to the future income tax adjustments and lower general and administrative costs, which was partially offset by an oil and gas thirteen month equalization adjustment in Q3 and lower production and commodity prices for natural gas. Other Comprehensive Income Other comprehensive income relates entirely to the mark to market valuation on the Company's investments in Bonterra Oil & Gas Ltd. (Bonterra O&G) and Pine Cliff Energy Ltd. (Pine Cliff). During the first three quarters of 2009, the market price of Bonterra O&G increased by approximately fifty-four percent (twenty-one percent for the third quarter of 2009 over the second quarter of 2009) resulting in an increase in the carrying value of Comaplex's investments of $1,888,000 ($979,000 for Q3 2009). This resulted in increases of other comprehensive income for the first three quarters of 2009 of $1,610,000 ($837,000 for Q3 2009) net of tax. In addition the Company elected to recognize a tax gain of $3,510,000 on its investment in Bonterra O&G shares (formerly Bonterra Energy Income Trust) when it converted from a trust to a corporation resulting in a realized future tax expense of $514,000 that was transferred to net income in the second quarter of 2009.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Cash flow from operations decreased by 91 percent in the first nine months of 2009 compared to the first nine months of 2008. The decrease was primarily due to decreased oil and gas revenue resulting from lower commodity prices and production, as well as reduced interest income. The cash flow increase from Q3 2009 of $560,000 from Q2 2009 was primarily due to an increase in non-cash working capital. Liquidity and Capital Resources At September 30, 2009, the Company had a working capital position of $33,317,000 (December 31, 2008 - $21,929,000). These numbers include the value of liquid investments of $5,509,000 at September 30, 2009 (December 31, 2008 - $3,621,000). On August 25, 2009, the Company completed a private placement for 5,530,000 common shares at a price of $4.25 per common share for gross proceeds of $23,502,500 and net proceeds after share issuance costs of $22,207,500. The proceeds of the placement will be used for the further exploration and development of the Meliadine properties and for general corporate purposes. The Company currently has a projected capital expenditure budget of $15,000,000 for the Meliadine West and East projects for the 2009 year. Included in this amount is an annual option payment of $1,580,000 and expenditures of $13,420,000 on the advanced exploration of the Meliadine West and East projects. A further $460,000 is planned to be spent on oil and gas development projects. The current working capital, anticipated cash flow from oil and gas operations and investment income are more than adequate to cover all planned expenditures for the remainder of this year and for 2010. The Company attempts to maintain at least a six month cash balance for the estimated required capital expenditures. Related Party The Company paid a management fee to Bonterra Energy Corp. (Bonterra Corp.), a wholly owned subsidiary of Bonterra O&G, of $247,500 (2008 - $247,500). The Company also shares office rental costs and reimburses Bonterra Corp. for costs related to employee benefits and office materials. These costs have been included in general and administrative costs of the Company. In addition, Bonterra Corp. owns 689,682 (December 31, 2008 - 689,682) common shares in the Company.

Notes to the Consolidated Interim Financial Statements

Periods ended September 30, 2009 and 2008 (unaudited)

1. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The interim consolidated financial statements for Comaplex Minerals
Corp. ("Comaplex" or the "Company") as at and for the three and nine
months ended September 30, 2009 should be read in conjunction with
the audited consolidated financial statements as at and for the year
ended December 31, 2008. The notes to these interim consolidated
financial statements do not conform in all respects to the note
disclosure requirements of generally accepted accounting policies
("GAAP") for annual consolidated financial statements. These interim
consolidated financial statements are prepared using the same
accounting policies and methods of computation as disclosed in the
annual consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended
December 31, 2008, except for those disclosed in Note 2 below. The
disclosures provided within are incremental to those included with
the annual financial statements.

2. CHANGE IN ACCOUNTING POLICIES

On January 1, 2009, the Company adopted the Canadian Institute of
Chartered Accountants ("CICA") Handbook Section 3064, "Goodwill and
Intangible Assets". The new section replaces the previous goodwill
and intangible asset standard and revises the requirement for
recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of intangible
assets. The adoption of this standard had no impact on the Company's
consolidated financial statements.

On January 1, 2009, the Company adopted the CICA's EIC-173, "Credit
Risk and the Fair Value of Financial Assets and Financial
Liabilities". The EIC provides guidance on how to take into account
credit risk of an entity and counterparty when determining the fair
value of financial assets and financial liabilities, including
derivative instruments. The adoption of this EIC had no impact on the
Company's consolidated financial statements.

Effective January 1, 2009, the Company prospectively adopted the CICA
issued Section 1582, "Business Combinations", which will replace the
former guidance on business combinations. Under the new standard, the
purchase price used in a business combination is based on the fair
value of consideration exchanged at the date of exchange. Currently
the purchase price used is based on the fair value of the
consideration for a reasonable period before and after the date of
acquisition is agreed upon and announced. The new standard generally
requires all acquisition costs be expensed, which are currently
capitalized as part of the purchase price. In addition, the new
standard modified the accounting for contingent consideration and
negative goodwill.

Effective January 1, 2009, the Company prospectively adopted the CICA
issued Sections 1601, "Consolidated Financial Statements", and 1602,
"Non-controlling Interests", which replace existing guidance. Section
1601 establishes standards for the preparation of consolidated
financial statements and Section 1602 provides guidance on accounting
for a non-controlling interest in a subsidiary subsequent to a
business combination.

Recent and Pending Accounting Pronouncements

In September 2009, the CICA issued amendments to CICA Handbook
Section 3862, "Financial Instruments - Disclosures". The amendments
include enhanced disclosures related to the fair value of financial
instruments and the liquidity risk associated with financial
instruments. The amendments will be effective for annual financial
statements for fiscal years ending after September 30, 2009. The
amendments are consistent with recent amendments to financial
instrument disclosure standards in International Financial Reporting
Standards ("IFRS"). The Company will include these additional
disclosures in its annual consolidated financial statements for the
year ending December 31, 2009.

The Canadian Accounting Standards Board has confirmed that IFRS will
replace Canadian GAAP effective January 1, 2011, including
comparatives for 2010, for Canadian publicly accountable enterprises.

The Company has completed its high-level IFRS impact study and
established a preliminary timeline for the execution and completion
of the conversion project. The impact of IFRS on the Company's
consolidated financial statements is not reasonably determinable at
this time.

The Company elected for tax purposes to recognize a tax gain of
$3,510,000 on its investment in Bonterra O&G shares (formerly
Bonterra Energy Income Trust) when it converted from a trust to a
corporation. This election increased its cost base for tax purposes.

The tax election resulted in the elimination of previously recorded
future taxes of $514,000 on gain on investments in other
comprehensive income.

The election resulted in a corresponding $1,755,000 of non-capital
loss carryforwards being utilized and as a result, $514,000 of future
tax was expensed to net loss for the period.

8. FINANCIAL AND CAPITAL RISK MANAGEMENT

Financial Risk Factors

The Company undertakes transactions in a range of financial
instruments including:

- Cash deposits;

- Receivables;

- Loan to related party;

- Investments;

- Payables;

The Company's activities result in exposure to a number of financial
risks including market risk (commodity price risk, interest rate
risk, foreign exchange risk, credit risk, and liquidity risk).
Financial risk management is carried out by senior management under
the direction of the Directors.

The Company does not enter into risk management contracts to sell its
oil and gas commodities. Commodities are sold at market prices at the
date of sale in accordance with the directive of the Board of
Directors and management.

Capital Risk Management
-----------------------

The Company's objectives when managing capital, which includes
current assets and long-term assets, are to safeguard the Company's
ability to continue as a going concern, so that it can continue to
provide returns to its Shareholders and benefits for other
stakeholders and to maintain an optimal capital structure to reduce
the cost of capital. In order to maintain or adjust the capital
structure, the Company may issue new shares.

The Company monitors capital on the basis of the ratio of budgeted
exploration capital requirements to current working capital. This
ratio is calculated using the projected cash requirements for nine
months to 18 months in advance and maintaining a working capital
balance of at least six months to satisfy this requirement on a
continuous basis.

The Company believes that maintaining at least a six month current
working capital balance to the exploration capital budget requirement
is an appropriate basis to allow it to continue its future
development of the Company's biggest asset; the "Meliadine West
Project."

The following section (a) of this note provides a summary of the
underlying economic positions as represented by the carrying values,
fair values and contractual face values of the financial assets and
financial liabilities. The Company's working capital to capital
expenditure requirement ratio is also provided.

The following section (b) addresses in more detail the key financial
risk factors that arise from the Company's activities including its
policies for managing these risks.

a) Financial assets, financial liabilities

The carrying amounts, fair value and face values of the Company's
financial assets and liabilities other than cash are shown in
Table 1.

future fifteen months (December 31, 2008 - twelve months) capital
expenditures and may materially change between quarters. Actual
capital expenditure from quarter to quarter can be materially
different from the budgeted capital expenditure.


b) Risks and mitigations

Market risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flow of
the Company's financial instruments will fluctuate because of changes
in market prices. Components of market risk to which Comaplex is
exposed are discussed below.

Commodity price risk
--------------------

The Company's principal operation is the development of its Meliadine
gold properties. The Company also engages to a much lesser extent in
the production and sale of oil and natural gas. Fluctuations in
prices of these commodities may directly impact the Company's
performance and ability to continue with its operations.

The Company's management, at the direction of the Board of Directors,
currently does not use risk management contracts to set price
parameters for its production.

Interest rate risk
------------------

Interest rate risk refers to the risk that the value of a financial
instrument or cash flows associated with the instrument will
fluctuate due to changes in market interest rates. Interest rate risk
arises from interest bearing financial assets and liabilities that
Comaplex uses. The principal exposure to the Company is on its cash
balances which have a variable interest rate which gives rise to a
cash flow interest rate risk.

Comaplex's cash consists of Canadian and U.S. investment chequing
accounts. Since these funds need to be accessible for the development
of the Company's capital projects, management does not reduce its
exposure to interest rate risk through entering into term contracts
of various lengths. As discussed above, the Company generally manages
its capital such that its budgeted capital requirements to current
working capital ratio are at least six months.

Sensitivity Analysis

Based on historic movements and volatilities in the interest rate
markets and management's current assessment of the financial markets,
the Company believes that a one percent variation in the Canadian
prime interest rate is reasonably possible over a 12-month period. No
income tax effect has been calculated as the Company is expected to
be non-taxable until January 1, 2015.

A one percent change in the Canadian prime rate would increase or
decrease annual cash flow by $306,000.

Foreign exchange risk
---------------------

The Company has no foreign operations and currently sells all of its
product sales in Canadian currency. The Company has a U.S. cash
balance and earns an insignificant amount of interest on its U.S.
bank account. Comaplex does not mitigate CAD/USD exchange rate risk
by using risk management contracts.

Credit risk
-----------

Credit risk is the risk that a contracting party will not complete
its obligations under a financial instrument and cause the Company to
incur a financial loss. Comaplex is exposed to credit risk on all
financial assets included on the balance sheet. To help mitigate this
risk:

- The Company only invests its cash balances in low risk liquid
investments which frequently results in receiving lower interest
rates.

- The majority of the loans and investments are only with entities
that have common management with the Company.

Of the accounts receivable balance at September 30, 2009 ($447,000)
and December 31, 2008 ($817,000), over 90 percent relates to product
sales with major oil and gas marketing companies all of which have
always paid within 30 days, amounts due from the government of Canada
for goods and services tax credits and interest from a related party.

The Company assesses quarterly if there has been any impairment of
the financial assets of the Company. During the year ended
December 31, 2008, there was a full impairment provision required on
an outstanding receivable for the mineral production royalty of
$84,000 as the operator of the production facility went into CCAA
protection. No impairment provision is required on the oil and gas
financial assets of the Company due to historical success of
collecting receivables. The Company does not have any significant
credit risk exposure to any single counterparty or any group of
counterparties having similar characteristics.

The carrying value of accounts receivable approximates their fair
value due to the relatively short periods to maturity on these
instruments. The maximum exposure to credit risk is represented by
the carrying amount on the balance sheet. There are no material
financial assets that the Company considers past due.

Liquidity risk
--------------

Liquidity risk includes the risk that, as a result of Comaplex's
operational liquidity requirements:

- The Company will not have sufficient funds to settle a transaction
on the due date;

- Comaplex will not have sufficient funds to continue with its
financing of its major exploration project;

- The Company will be forced to sell assets at a value which is less
than what they are worth; or

- Comaplex may be unable to settle or recover a financial asset at
all.

To help reduce these risks, the Company:

- Has a general capital policy of maintaining at least six months of
annual budgeted capital requirements as its working capital base;

- Holds current investments that are readily tradable should the
need arise; and

- Maintains a continuous evaluation approach as to the financing
requirements for its largest exploration program; the "Meliadine
West Project."
