Majescor and SOMINE Discover a New Copper-Gold Zone on the SOMINE Property, Haiti

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 26, 2011) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES. ANY FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS RESTRICTION MAY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF U.S. SECURITIES LAWS.

Majescor Resources Inc. ("Majescor" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MJX), its 100%-owned affiliate company SIMACT Alliance Copper-Gold Inc. ("SACG") and their Haitian partner SOMINE SA are pleased to report that they have discovered a new copper – gold zone on the SOMINE copper – gold Property ("SOMINE Property"). The Somine property is located in the North-East mineral district of Haiti, in the same mineral belt as the Pueblo Viejo deposit in the Dominican Republic (23.7 million ounces Au, +Ag +Cu), and is 15 km southeast from a deep water port at Fort Liberté, Haiti. A paved road leads into the NW corner of the property, and an electricity grid is present within 5 km of the property to the northeast.

In early 2011, SOMINE SA geologists sampled and mapped the northern half of the principal NNE-trending ridge on the SOMINE Property that also hosts: the Blondin porphyry copper deposit (historical of 50 million tonnes @ 0.56% Cu*); the Douvray porphyry copper deposit (historical resource of 69.5 million tonnes @ 0.39% Cu*); and the Dos Rada copper-gold occurrence (see Figure 1 accompanying this press release available at www.majescor.com).

The new copper-gold zone, termed the Mathelière zone, has a 2.4 km strike length and is up to 800 m wide. Surface grab samples of malachite-bearing altered andesite, gossanous rock and quartz – iron oxide rock yielded 35 (of 83) samples with > 1% Cu (further assays pending), and 9 samples with 0.5 to 9.0 ppm Au. Majescor and partner SOMINE SA are encouraged by these results, as they are very similar to the assay values and geology at the Blondin and Douvray deposits along trend to the SSE; as well as to the 3.5 km-long by 800 m-wide Dos Rada mineralization further along trend to the south-southeast on the property (see figure 1).

Majescor and partner SOMINE SA are finalising the design of a core drilling program which aims to define and expand the mineralization at the Douvray and Blondin copper – gold prospects. In addition, a comprehensive mapping, sampling and induced polarization program has been designed for the Mathelière and Dos Rada areas, with the goal to bring these new copper – gold discoveries to the drill stage within six months. For these programs, Majescor and SOMINE SA have contracted Buscore Consulting Ltd. (see Majescor Press Release dated May 19, 2011) who are presently mobilizing to the SOMINE Property.
