TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 10, 2005) - Band-Ore Resources Ltd. (TSX:BAN) reports that it has signed a Letter of Intent with a private company ("Privco") on the GQ Diamond Property, located in Musquash Township, near Wawa, Ontario. Pursuant to the proposed terms, "Privco" can earn a 60% undivided interest by incurring exploration expenditures of $2.5 million over a 4 year period, including a firm work commitment of $500,000 during the first year of the agreement. This letter of intent is non binding and the formal option agreements are subject to the approval of management and the Board of Directors of both Band-Ore and "Privco".
