      Canplats Adopts Shareholder Rights Plan

Vancouver, BC - Canplats Resources Corporation ("Canplats" or the
"Company") announced that its Board of Directors has implemented a
Shareholder Rights Plan (the "Rights Plan").

The Rights Plan has been adopted to ensure the fair treatment of all
Canplats shareholders in the event of a take-over bid for the
outstanding common shares of Canplats.  In the event that a take-over
bid should occur, the Rights Plan provides a mechanism to ensure that
shareholders have adequate time to properly evaluate and assess it
without facing undue pressure or coercion.  The Rights Plan also
provides the Board with additional time to consider any take-over bid
and, if applicable, to explore alternative transactions in order to
maximise shareholder value.  Accordingly, the Rights Plan is not
designed to prevent take-over bids that treat Canplats shareholders
The Rights Plan is subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.

Additionally, the Rights Plan is subject to ratification by the
Company's shareholders at the Company's annual general and special
meeting on January 14, 2009 and re-ratification at the Company's annual
general meetings to be held in 2012 and 2015.  If ratified by the
shareholders at each of these meetings, the Rights Plan will have a
term of nine years and will expire at the Company's annual general
meeting in 2018.  If the shareholders do not ratify the Rights Plan at
any of such meetings, it will terminate.

Pursuant to the terms of the Rights Plan, any bid that meets certain
criteria intended to protect the interests of all shareholders is
deemed to be a "Permitted Bid".  A Permitted Bid must be made by way of
a take-over bid circular prepared in compliance with applicable
securities laws and, in addition to certain other conditions, must
remain open for a minimum of 75 days.  In the event a take-over bid
does not meet the Permitted Bid requirements of the Rights Plan, the
rights issued under the plan will entitle shareholders, other than any
shareholder or shareholders involved in the take-over bid, to purchase
additional common shares of Canplats at a significant discount to the
market price of the common shares at that time.  The Board of Directors
is not currently aware of any pending or proposed take-over bid for

A copy of the Shareholder Rights Plan Agreement will be available under
the Company's profile at, the website maintained by the
Canadian securities regulatory authorities.  Reference should be made
to the full text of the plan for the details of its provisions.

In addition, the Company announces that it has granted incentive stock
options to directors and officers of the Company, to purchase up to
550,000 common shares of the Company.  The options are exercisable for
a period of five years at a price of $1.34 per share.  The options were
granted under and are subject to the terms and conditions of the
Company's November 21, 2003 Stock Option Plan.
