Lamelee Concludes an Agreement in Principle With the City of Port-Cartier

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - June 17, 2014) -


Lamêlée Iron Ore Ltd. ("Lamêlée" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:LIR) is pleased to announce that it has concluded an agreement in principle with the City of Port-Cartier ("Port-Cartier") pursuant to which Port-Cartier has agreed to support an infrastructure project involving the construction of a handling yard, a rail loop, and access to a wharf on the St. Lawrence available year-round.

Under the agreement, Port-Cartier commits to take the necessary steps to grant Lamêlée access and put certain lands at its disposal which are strategic to the development of the project. In addition, Port-Cartier agrees to provide access to a wharf for the transhipment of the ore and to give the necessary authorizations for the construction of the infrastructure project.

If the infrastructure project materializes, the agreement provides for Lamêlée to lease the lands and wharf from Port-Cartier on a long-term basis.

Lamêlée's President said that, "This agreement in principle with Port-Cartier marks an important strategic phase in the Company's development. It ensures that Lamêlée will have guaranteed access to a wharf for the transhipment of ore under conditions designed for those operations."

Death of a Director: It is with great sadness that Lamêlée announces the loss of Mr. Marcel Côté, a new Director of the Company, struck suddenly by a heart attack on Sunday, May 25, 2014. "Marcel's contribution to the success of the Company was already beginning to be felt. He will be sorely missed," said Mr. Pierre Lortie, Chairman of the Board.
