      Independent Proxy Advisory Firm RiskMetrics Recommends Canplats
      Securityholders Vote in Favour of the Arrangement with Goldcorp

Canplats Resources Corporation (TSX-V: CPQ) ("Canplats" or the
"Company") is pleased to announce that RiskMetrics Group (formerly
Institutional Shareholders Services) ("RiskMetrics"), Canada's leading
independent proxy advisory firm, has published a report recommending
that its clients holding Canplats securities vote in favour of the
acquisition of Canplats by Goldcorp Inc. ("Goldcorp") by way of a plan
of arrangement (the "Arrangement"), as announced on December 29, 2009.

Under the terms of the Arrangement, holders of common shares of
Canplats, including common shares issued under the Arrangement in
exchange for the "in-the-money" value of options and warrants, will
receive, for each common share held, C$4.60 in cash and a common share
of Camino Minerals Corporation, a new exploration company, with a
notional value of C$0.20.

As indicated in the supplemental management information circular (the
"Supplemental Circular") dated January 14, 2010, the Board of Directors
of Canplats recommends that Canplats securityholders vote in favour of
the resolution approving the Arrangement at the special meeting of the
securityholders of Canplats with respect to the Arrangement (the
"Canplats Meeting").  The Supplemental Circular sets out the reasons
for the Board of Directors' recommendation and also contains other
information concerning the Arrangement. Securityholders are encouraged
to read the Supplemental Circular carefully in its entirety. The
Supplemental Circular can be obtained from the Company's website at or under the Company's profile on the SEDAR website at  This announcement is for informational purposes only
and does not constitute an offer to purchase common shares or a
solicitation of a proxy.

The Canplats Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, January 28, 2010 at
2:00 at the Pan Pacific Vancouver, Ocean View Room, located at 300 -
999 Canada Place, Vancouver, British Columbia. The record date for
determination of the securityholders entitled to receive notice of, and
vote at, the Canplats Meeting has been fixed as 5:00 p.m. (Vancouver
time) on December 14, 2009.

Proxy Voting Deadline

The deadline for the deposit of proxies for use at the Canplats Meeting
is 2:00 p.m. (Vancouver time) on January 26, 2010.  Voting instruction
forms will have to be submitted earlier than forms of proxy.
Securityholders who have already properly completed and deposited a
proxy or submitted a voting instruction form do not have to take any
further action to vote their securities, unless they wish to change
their voting instructions.

Securityholders who have completed and deposited a form of proxy or
submitted a voting instruction form but wish to change their voting
instructions should complete and deposit a new proxy or submit a new
voting instruction form reflecting the change in the form of proxy or
voting instruction form. Securityholders who have not already completed
and deposited a form of proxy or submitted a voting instruction form
should do so as soon as possible.

Proxies can be deposited and voting instruction forms can be submitted,
including changes to voting instructions, either by telephone or
internet.  Securityholders are encouraged to use the quickest and
easiest method possible to execute their vote and should contact
Kingsdale Shareholder Services Inc. (in North America, by telephone
(toll-free) at (888) 518-6812) for assistance.
