TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – July 12, 2016) – Platinex Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PTX) (the “Company“) announces that work has commenced on both a NI43-101 report on its Shining Tree property located south of Timmins, Ontario and a major reconstruction of its website. The qualifying report will focus on a valuation of the Herrick gold deposit.
The Central Zone of the Herrick deposit has been systematically sampled over a 361 m length returning an average of 6.98 g/t Au/1.9 m true width. Sixty two holes have been drilled by Platinex and previous operator Unocal to test this deposit down to a depth of 300 m. The Technical Report authors are contemplating three steps to expeditiously carry out the process: assembly of a drill hole database; creation of a 3D model to prepare the preliminary resource estimate and finally preparing the formal Technical Report.
