AntOro Resources Inc. / Lac-des-Iles Property:
Exploration Update

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - March 4, 2005) - AntOro Resources Inc.
(TSX VENTURE:ORE) wishes to bring its shareholders up to date with
respect to its exploration activities on the Lac-des-Iles property.
Located 2 km from North American Palladium's palladium mine, north of
Thunder Bay, Ontario, the property consists of sixteen claim blocks
covering approximately 2,080 hectares.

During summer 2004, extensive work was undertaken on the existing grid
following results obtained from the previously carried out IP (Induced
Polarization) and geochemical soil surveys. MMI soil samples were also
collected immediately above the geochemical and IP anomalies surveys
identified during the summer of 2003.

The surface exploration team collected two hundred and seventy-six soil
samples which were sent for laboratory testing. Results are presently
pending. The team also collected an additional 1,312 soil samples in
order to cover the extensions of the original grid. Results of this
survey, when reviewed together with those of the 2002 survey, will allow
the Corporation to better understand the local geology.

Following receipt and interpretation of the geochemical survey results,
the Corporation intends to undertake drilling on the most promising
geophysical and geochemical anomalies. AntOro will keep its investors
abreast of developments via press release when final results are
received.

The Corporation also wishes to announce the resignation of Dr. Grant
Cool as Director and Chairman of Board of Directors. Dr. Cool wishes to
devote more time to his personal business undertakings. AntOro extends
its warmest thanks to Dr. Cool for his efforts over the last few years
and wishes him all the best in his future endeavours.

Mr. Benoit Violette, P.Geo., will be replacing Dr. Cool on the Board of
Directors. Mr. Violette is a professional geologist with extensive
experience in generating, financing and managing exploration and
development projects for a wide range of mineral commodities throughout
Canada, Africa and the USA. As a consultant he has acted, over the last
twenty years, as Director on the Boards of several junior exploration
companies.
