Nevada Gold Acquisition Closes

June 29, 2017-Saskatoon, SK—Canadian Platinum Corp. ("CPC" or the "Company"-TSXV:CPC) is pleased to announce that it has closed the acquisition of a 70% working interest in the Cook Gold Project in Humboldt County, Nevada, USA, from a private Nevada corporation. (see previous disclosure in news releases dated January 9th and April 6th, 2017).

Closing of the acquisition was conditional on obtaining disinterested shareholder approval of the transaction, resulting in the creation of a new control person. This approval was obtained at the Company's Annual General and Special Meeting of the Shareholders held May 31st, 2017, where the requisite majority of the disinterested shareholders voted for the resolution approving the transaction and the creation of a new control person. The transaction still requires final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.

Consideration for the purchase is 50 million common shares of CPC. There are no finder's fees associated with the transaction.

There are no work commitments, but the Company does commit to keep the mineral claims in good standing by making the required annual fee payments to the Bureau of Land Management and the local county. There is an Area of Mutual Interest extending 5 miles from the current claim boundaries. The property is also subject to a 2.5% Net Smelter Royalty in favour of Arm's Length third parties.

The Cook Gold Project consists of 88 lode claims covering 7.4 sq km and located 100 km northwest of Winnemucca, Nevada. The proximity of the project area to the former-producing Sleeper Mine indicate that the mineralization on the property may well represent the northern extention of the Battle Mountain Eureka trend, with more work and analyses necessary to make that determination. Surface sampling over the property, in 2004 and 2011, resulted in identifying significant gold and silver mineralization across the property, outlining a corridor of higher grade results with a strike length of 2,100 metres and width of 600 metres. There are 5 historic mine workings on the property that were focused on near-surface oxidized mineralization. Details of the historic sampling and assay results are discussed in theJanuary 9th, 2017 news release.

Gary Billingsley, President comments "The Company is pleased to have completed the acquisition of the Nevada project, significantly increasing the exposure to gold in our project portfolio."
