AntOro Resources Inc.: White Lake Property:
Exploration Update

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 28, 2005) - AntOro Resources Inc.
(TSX VENTURE:ORE) wishes to update its shareholders with respect to its
exploration activities on the White Lake property during the past year.
Located halfway between the towns of White River and Marathon in
Northwestern Ontario, its western boundary lies on the shores of White
Lake (Refer to NTS sheets 42C/12 et 42C/13). The property consists of
sixteen claim blocks covering a total area of 2,608 hectares. Its
geology is dominated by the Hemlo-Black-River assemblage of the
Schreiber-Hemlo greenstone belt, more specifically within the eastern
extension of the Hemlo Mining camp.

McDougall Grid

During last summer, the company carried out some large-scale follow-up
work using the results of the 2003 geological mapping and Induced
Polarization (IP) surveys. The IP survey outlined three anomalies
located in the stratigraphic extensions of the MacDougall gold showing
which historically returned values of 1,168 ppm Au (Quartz veins) and
1.06 ppm Au (Qz-Fp Pegmatite) - Showing number 34 (Reference: Geological
Compilation / Eastern Half of the Schreiber-Hemlo Greenstone Belt, Map
2614, Ontario Geological Survey). Four hundred and ten soil samples
were taken and are destined to "Metal Mobile Ion" (MMI) analysis.

VMS Grid

The VMS grid was covered by a geological mapping and prospecting
campaign where fifty rock samples were collected and submitted for
analysis. The EMH (MaxMin) and Magnetic targets outlined by previous
surveys performed by AntOro were covered by a MMI survey of three
hundred and fifty-nine samples.

Patio Lake Grid

The Patio Lake grid was also covered by a geological mapping and
prospecting campaign; selective soil-sampling (MMI) of the EMH (MaxMin)
targets was carried out producing ninety-eight samples.

All samples have been sent for analysis and the results will be
published as soon as received.

Future Work

Upon receipt and interpretation of the lab results, the company will
select the most interesting drill targets identified by the geophysical
and geochemical surveys.
