Antoro: Geophysical Results on Andy Lake Uranium Property, Mont- Laurier, Quebec

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 19, 2006) - AntOro Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ORE) is pleased to announce that it has received the results from its ground radiometric survey completed on the Andy Lake property in July, 2006. The property is adjacent to the Nova Uranium's ("NUC" TSX-V) Mont-Laurier property. AntOro has an option to acquire a 100% interest in the property.

The Company cut two 500m X 500M grids, over each of the original prospects: Raoul Lake and Adrian Pond. The grid had 50m line spacing with survey stations every 25m. The radiometric survey was completed with readings taken every 12.5m, and when feasible rock samples (chip or channel) were taken. Outcrops with radiometric anomalies were flagged and will be mechanically stripped in the future for appropriate rock or channel sampling.

A total of six (6) significant radiometric anomalies were outlined over the area covered by the survey, this in comparaison to the two originally found. The original "Raoul Lake" anomaly now referred to as anomaly "B" was located and some of the trenches excavated by SOQUEM in the 1970's were found and re-sampled. This anomaly is the largest on the property and has a strike length of 250m. Together with anomaly "A" it strikes along a NW direction for a total length of over 400m. This strike coincides with a similarly oriented belt of pegmatites, granite/granitic gneiss and quartz feldspar gneiss outcrops. These two anomalies have the highest radiometric readings (1040 counts per second "cps" on anomaly "A" and 4,050 cps on anomaly "B") on the property and have the majority of the higher anomalous readings.

Anomaly "C" (max. 530 cps) was also located southwest of the "A" and "B" anomalies as well as being SW of Raoul Lake and could be part of the same formation. Anomaly B and Raoul Lake per say are now additional exploration targets which need to be further explored.

Anomalies "D", "E" and "F"(between 415 to 495 CPS) were found in the southwest corner of the property. Anomaly "D" appears to be underlain by pegmatites, "E" is predominantly underlain by a quartz-feldspar gneiss and anomaly "F" is mostly underlain by a pegmatite with its northern section underlain by granite and/or granitic gneiss.

As stated previously, the various zones of interest seem to have similar characteristics and mineralization as Nova Uranium's "A" and "B" zones as described by them on their website.

During the July campaign, representative samples were taken from all of the anomalous zones on the Andy Lake property and were sent for analysis mainly for uranium content. Results are still pending. The high level of mineral exploration underway at this time creates a situation where most analytical laboratories are very busy, with processing times often exceeding 3 months after sample reception. The AntOro samples are in line for analysis and once results are available they will be communicated. They will be analysed to help in planning future field programs to be performed during phase II of the exploration program.
