Platinex Files Technical Reports for Ring of Fire Properties

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 11, 2011) - Platinex Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PTX), announced the filing of qualifying reports covering it's McFaulds Lake South and McFaulds Lake North properties.

Platinex's McFaulds South property comprises of six claim blocks containing 11,267 hectares and a total of 696 claim units. The property is located within the same stratigraphic package of rocks as the Ring of Fire chromite and Ni-Cu-PGE deposits (including Noront's Eagle One and Double Eagle Ni-Cu-PGE deposits; Noront's Blackbird and Cliff's Thor Lake and Big Daddy chromium deposits). Their deposits are located 25 kilometres northeast of the Platinex property demonstrably on strike as indicated by a strong continuous magnetic feature. In addition ultramafic outcrops on the South McFaulds property coincide with the magnetic feature and are on the line of strike with the world class deposits.

James Trusler, Platinex's President & CEO commented, "While Platinex's current exploration focus is on its Shining Tree Gold Property, our six PGE properties represent tremendous long term value for the Company's shareholders. Our objective with the PGE properties, including the two McFaulds projects, is to finance the development of the properties through farm out agreements and the filing of the qualifying reports is part of that overall process."

HudBay Minerals Inc. backed, MacDonald Mines, has reported results of drilling (MacDonald Mines Press Release May 9, 2011) on Cu-Zn-Pb-Au-Ag, Ni-Cu and vanadium mineralization in separate drill holes on its Butler Lake property which adjoins Platinex's McFaulds South property on the north. The release states that certain of the VMS mineralization intersected included sections of massive sulphides.

The McFaulds North property is also located within the McFaulds Lake area. It comprises 609 claim units for 9,760 ha in one block. The property is underlain by a regional gravity anomaly and a magnetic high believed to signify the base of an ultramafic intrusion which covers an estimated strike length of 10 kilometres on the property.
