VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwire – June 25, 2008) – Canplats Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE:CPQ) is pleased to announce the results of a further twenty reverse circulation drill holes completed in the Represa Zone of the Camino Rojo project in the State of Zacatecas, Mexico.

Continued drilling in the main part of the Represa Zone has confirmed the continuity of the near-surface mineralization. Of particular interest is hole CR-74, an east-bound hole drilled in the northeast corner of the zone, which intersected 270 meters averaging 0.94 grams gold per tonne, 18.83 grams silver per tonne, 0.32% lead, and 0.52% zinc, including 60 meters averaging 2.07 grams gold per tonne, 38.35 grams silver per tonne, 0.40% lead, and 0.98% zinc. Drill hole CR-80, a west-bound hole that was also drilled on the eastern side of the zone, intersected 264 meters averaging 1.01 grams gold per tonne, 17.24 grams silver per tonne, 0.29% lead, and 0.62% zinc, including 116 meters averaging 1.56 grams gold per tonne, 21.99 grams silver per tonne, 0.30% lead, and 0.82% zinc. These two holes further demonstrate the strength of the mineralization on the eastern side of the Represa Zone, which remains open for expansion.

Drill results are summarized in the following table:

Drill holes CR-62, CR-69 and CR-74 were drilled at -50 degrees to the east; CR-80 at -50 degrees to the west; CR-68 and CR-73 at -50 degrees to the north. CR-76 through CR-79 were vertical holes. All other holes were drilled at -60 degrees to the north.

The Company has now completed its initial reverse circulation drilling program at the Represa Zone and will commence an independent resource estimate upon receipt of all outstanding drill hole assays. It is expected that this initial resource estimate will be completed and announced later in the year. The Represa Zone remains open to the east, west and to depth.

A program of reconnaissance-style tensor IP geophysical surveys has also commenced to the southwest and southeast of the Represa- Don Julio Zones. This survey will initially focus on an area referred to as “Camino Rojo Dos”, which is situated 20 kms to the west-southwest of the Represa Zone and was identified through similar surface prospecting methods to the Camino Rojo discovery. Regional prospecting and mapping is ongoing over the remainder of the very large Camino Rojo property, which now measures approximately 340,000 hectares (more than 1,300 square miles). The Camino Rojo property is 100% owned by Canplats and located in an area of excellent infrastructure, 50 kilometers to the southeast of Goldcorp’s Penasquito mine.

All work is being supervised by Ken McNaughton, vice-president, exploration, and a qualified person as defined by Canada’s National Instrument 43-101 responsible for the Camino Rojo exploration program and has verified the data in the table above. All samples were submitted for preparation in Guadalajara, Mexico and analysis at its facilities in Vancouver, B.C. by ALS Chemex. All samples were analyzed using aqua regia digestion with ICP finish. All gold samples were fire assayed with an AA finish and all samples over 10 ppm gold were re-assayed using a fire assay with a gravimetric finish. Samples over 100 ppm silver were reanalyzed using four acid digestion with an ore grade AA finish. One in 20 samples was blind duplicate assayed at ALS Chemex in Vancouver, B.C.
