Platinex Commissions Airborne EM Survey Ring of Fire

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 4, 2011) - Platinex Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PTX), announced today that it engaged Fugro Airborne Surveys Corp. to conduct a 1,104 line km HELITEM survey over its South McFaulds property in the Ring of Fire area of Ontario.

A portion of the recently completed survey focused on the thickened Ring of Fire Intrusion which appears to source chromium anomalies in till to the south of the property and is believed an attractive target for the occurrence of PGE reefs similar to those of the Big Trout Lake Intrusion. The Company looks forward to publishing the results within the next few months.

For the purpose of this release James R. Trusler, P.Eng is considered the qualified person.
