When claims are recorded in Ontario an expiry date is set on the second anniversary of recording. Assessment work must be filed to keep the claims in good standing for a longer period. The Pending Proceeding Order had the impact of protecting all of Platinex's claims from May 14, 2008 onwards.

"Having these six PGE-Ni-Cu properties including two large prospective Ring of Fire properties in good standing as if they were freshly recorded is a huge advantage for the company. One of the Ring of Fire properties is underlain by the southern extension of the Ring of Fire Intrusion which hosts the major chromium, vanadium and Ni-Cu-PGE deposits. Along with the large infusion of capital (see Press Release December 14, 2009) the opportunities available to the company are quite exciting" said James R. Trusler, President and CEO.    "We have been holding talks with several parties to finance long term exploration on these properties."
