Platinex Completes Flow Through Financing for W2 Project






Platinex Inc. (CSE: PTX) (OTCQB: PANXF) (Frankfurt: 9PX) is pleased to announce that the Company has closed the final tranche of flow-through financing with an additional $452,000 to achieve a total financing of $1,972,000 (see press release dated December 13, 2023).


“We are pleased to have attracted enthusiastic new investors into this financing who recognize the opportunity based on our diversified holdings in two globally significant mining camps in Northern Ontario,” says Greg Ferron, CEO and President of Platinex Inc. “The W2 Copper Nickel PGE Project is permitted for exploration and our plan is to initiate a drill program to expand on the extensive Copper Nickel and PGE mineralization over six kilometers of strike length in the central area and investigate new greenfield targets in the north, west and east of the property which have been identified in the airborne work done to date and compiled in the modelling study recently completed by BAW Mining Inc.


“As well, we will continue to be active with exploration work at our Shining Tree JV Gold Camp in the Abitibi, including drilling at Heenan. This financing helps to set Platinex up for a productive 2024.”


The final tranche financing consists of an issuance of 11,300,000 flow through common shares at a price of C$0.04 per share. Each FT common share comprises one common share of the Company.


The Company will use the gross proceeds of the FT Offering to fund eligible Canadian exploration expenses associated with the W2 Copper Nickel PGE Project that qualify as “flow-through critical mineral mining expenditures”, as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada), on or before December 31, 2024. Platinex will renounce benefits of all qualifying expenditures in favour of the subscribers effective December 31, 2023.


All securities issued in connection with this FT Offering are subject to a four month plus one day hold period from the Closing Date in accordance with applicable securities laws.


The closing of the FT Offering is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals. The Company may pay finder’s fees to eligible finders in connection with the Offering.


About the W2 Copper Nickel PGE Project


W2 is a district scale land package encompassing 1,122 cell units covering 22,094 ha (220 km2) in an area of world-class geological targets located in the Oxford Stull Dome Complex near Ontario’s famous “Ring of Fire”. W2 controls the mineral-rich and under-explored, layered mafic-ultramafic Lansdowne House Igneous Complex (“LHIC”), which is highly prospective for copper-nickel (Cu-Ni), platinum group element (PGE), gold and chromite deposits. The common thread of strong Cu-Ni-PGE, Cr and Ti-V mineralization in the mafic- ultramafic intrusions ringing the Oxford Stull Dome is suggestive of a common source, a very large magmatic system, and therefore potential for a significant abundance of metals in each intrusion.


Historical work, including approximately 20,000 metres of drilling in the W2 area by operators such as INCO and Aurora Platinum, has delineated at least seven significant mineralized zones within a 7.5 km long folded corridor near the centre of the land package. Additionally, VTEM and AeroTEM II airborne geophysical surveys have identified multiple high-priority conductors in the eastern section of the property which have yet to be drill tested.
