Platinex and Ontario Settle Dispute Over Big Trout Lake

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 14, 2009) - Platinex Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PTX), announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Ontario over its Big Trout Lake property. Platinex has agreed to surrender its claims and leases and settle the outstanding litigation on Big Trout Lake in exchange for an upfront sum totaling $5 Million dollars in addition to the Company's expenses throughout the Mediation process. The Company will also be entitled to a 2.5% Net Smelter Royalty in connection with any future development on the property.

Jim Trusler, President & CEO stated that "Platinex is pleased to be able to recover value for the Big Trout Lake property. It became apparent that the Company was not going to be able to access the property. We can now focus on our other PGE and Gold properties and the money will enable Platinex to execute its business plan. Should the Ontario government allow future exploration on the former property we would expect to benefit from the future development of the very significant platinum potential. The Company is excited to be moving forward with exploration and looks forward to announcing a drill program on its Shining Tree gold property for the winter months."
