Platinex to Undertake Private Placement



    AURORA, ON, April 27 /CNW/ - Platinex Inc. (TSX-V: PTX), a Canadian
exploration company, announced today that it intends to complete a
non-brokered private placement of up to 500,000 common shares at $0.40 per
share, for gross proceeds of $200,000.00. Proceeds of the private placement
will be used to pay outstanding debts and for immediate working capital
purposes. The private placement is subject to regulatory approval and is
expected to close on or about May 12, 2007.
    On April 2, 3 and 4, 2007, Kitchenuhmaykossib Inninuwug ("KI"), argued
its motion for an order prohibiting Platinex Inc. from conducting any drilling
on the Big Trout Lake property until the trial of the main action. Platinex
opposed the motion. The Provincial Government proposed a court supervised
process that would allow Platinex to commence its drilling while consultation
continued. Platinex supported this proposal. The court reserved its judgment.
As of the date of this document, a decision has not been rendered.

    This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the
solicitation of an offer to buy any securities in any jurisdiction.
