TORONTO, March 3 – Platinex Inc. (TSXV: PTX) today announced it has staked 82,600 acres (33,441 ha) on the Muskox Intrusion, in Nunavut Territory, northern Canada.
The Muskox intrusion is among the world’s largest layered mafic intrusions and rivals the Bushveld complex of South Africa in size. Previous work on adjacent areas infers the existence of a PGE reef beneath the hidden portion of the Muskox intrusion as well as the possibility of a contact deposit at depth. James R. Trusler, Platinex President and CEO, explained, “Many of the world’s PGE experts agree that the Muskox intrusion is the most prospective large scale geological target for PGEs in North America.”
At Muskox, Platinex first intends to conduct ground exploration with follow up drilling commencing as early as late spring.”
