Platinex Welcomes First Nations' Advisor, Chief Glenn Nolan



    TORONTO, July 17 /CNW/ - Platinex Inc. (TSX Venture: PTX) today announced
that it has retained the services of Chief Glenn Nolan to facilitate contact
with First Nations communities and provide a hands on aboriginal perspective
for the Company. Chief Nolan brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to
his role as Advisor. Interestingly, during the late 1970s and '80s, Chief
Nolan worked extensively in exploration, conducting geophysical surveys
throughout Canada, which gives him valuable insight into the programs and
procedures Platinex aims to employ on its properties in cooperation with First
Nations groups.
    Chief Nolan is the elected Chief of the Missanabie Cree First Nation;
currently serves as the second Vice President of the Prospectors and
Developers Association of Canada; and is President of Learning Together, a
nonprofit organization sharing information and experience with Aboriginal
communities across Canada and internationally.

demonstrated strong leadership in both the First Nations community and the
mineral exploration industry; he is a distinguished addition to our Platinex
team."
