All regulatory approvals have now been obtained for equity line of credit

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 20, 2010) - THIS NEWS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.

Dianor Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:DOR) is pleased to announce that it has filed, and obtained a receipt for, a final base shelf prospectus qualifying shares to be issued by Dianor to Kodiak Capital Group, LLC of New York under a previously-announced $30 million equity line of credit (press releases March 3rd 2010 and July 19th 2010). Dianor filed the final base shelf prospectus with the securities regulatory authorities of Québec, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia.

Dianor has now received all regulatory approvals for the equity line of credit with Kodiak Capital. Dianor will be entitled to file a prospectus supplement each time that it draws down funds under the equity line.

Dianor intends to use the funding from the equity line of credit to advance bulk sampling of the Leadbetter Diamond Project, Dianor's flagship project located near Wawa, Ontario, and for working capital.

As a result of comments from the Canadian securities regulatory authorities with respect to the equity line of credit, the closing of a first draw down by Dianor under the equity line with Kodiak must be in an amount of not less than $500,000 and preceded by a closing of a first advance to Dianor of not less than $1 million under Dianor's previously-announced Credit Agreement with Third Eye Capital Corporation, as administrative agent, and a syndicate of lenders (press release August 30th 2010). Dianor will announce by press release any draw down of funds by Dianor under the equity line of credit with Kodiak or closing of an advance under the Credit Agreement.

A copy of the final base shelf prospectus is available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) under Dianor's company profile.

About Dianor

Dianor is an innovative exploration company focused on advancing diamond exploration properties in the Superior Craton of Canada. The Leadbetter Diamond Project is its most advanced project and is geographically well situated and easily accessible, some 12 kilometres north east of Wawa in Northern Ontario. Substantial exploration work has been conducted on the project since 2005 and in May 2009, the Company received government approval to proceed with a 50,000 tonne bulk sampling programme of the 2.697 Ma old Archean Conglomerate. A preliminary tonnage estimate for this conglomerate is in the range of 549 million to 583 million tonnes (press release July 24th 2007). In addition to diamonds, the conglomerate contains gold, sapphires and rubies (press release January 18th 2007). In 2008, additional diamond discoveries, including rare purple diamonds, were made by the Company in rocks of similar type, age (Archean) and geological settings (press release March 3rd, April 10th, & May 13th 2008) in Quebec. The Quebec diamond properties have increased our portfolio of low cost, accessible exploration targets. These diamond discoveries (Ontario and Quebec) are both unique and amongst the oldest diamond-bearing occurrences in the world.
