Majescor Resources Inc. ("Majescor" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MJX) is pleased to report that drill hole D-009 which targeted the eastern margin of the Douvray porphyry copper-gold prospect, Northeast Haiti, has intersected 0.68% Cu, 0.40 g/t Au, 3.27 g/t Ag and 80 ppm Mo over 106.6 m (see Table 1). Hole D-009 (Dip = -90º) is located 400 m to the North-Northeast of drill hole D-008 which recently returned 0.232 % Cu over 422.60 m, the longest copper intercept on the SOMINE project to date (see Majescor Press Release dated May 23, 2012). In addition, anomalous copper-gold intervals were intersected in drill hole D-011 (Dip = -70° E) drilled from the same platform as D-009 (Table 1). A map showing the location of the drill holes at Douvray is available at the Company's WEB site at www.majescor.com.

The two latest drill holes, along with results from previously released drill intersections and historic drilling at Douvray, are shown in a new three-dimensional ("3D") model of the Douvray prospect available at www.corebox.net. Sectional view of the drilling can also be seen within the CoreBox® WEB application. (Section ID = 00652). The Corebox® model highlights the extent of copper gold and silver mineralization underneath the ridge forming the topographic high that is over 200 m above the alluvial plane. Geological 3D modelling of the Douvray copper mineralization using Gemcom's Surpac™ resource modelling software (under license to CanMinX Enterprises Ltd; http://canminx.ca.) displays features of a "typical" porphyry copper deposit with a steep walled cylindrical central core comprised mostly of felsic porphyritic intrusive rock surrounded by mafic volcanic rocks. The mineralization occurs as disseminations or stockwork veins that appear to be concentrated in two steep strongly mineralized chutes on opposite sides of the central porphyritic core and with higher copper grades occurring within the mafic volcanic rocks closest to the core. Significant mineralization also occurs above the core giving an overall northwest/southeast trending anticlinal form to the copper mineralization.

Through the Corebox® Google Earth® plug-in, it can also be seen that the Douvray prospect is located at a horizontal distance of 11.68 km southeast of a deep water port under construction at the Caracol industrial park (www.ute.gouv.ht/caracol/index.php/).

Daniel Hachey, President & CEO of Majescor stated: "Drill hole D-009 is among the best drilled at Douvray to date, and it demonstrates that the minimum 520 m-long mineralized system at Douvray contains zones of higher grade copper-gold-silver-molybdenum. Our geological team has found that more siliceous parts of the intrusions and adjacent volcanic rocks carry higher gold contents, and we will be targeting these high grade zones in the coming weeks."

To date, the Company has completed 19 holes totalling 5,962 m out the planned 10,000 m core drilling program initiated on the SOMINE project in October 2011. The principal aim of the drilling is to replicate significant historical copper intercepts and apply National Instrument ("NI") 43-101 QA/QC standards, expand tonnage of the known copper mineralization, and provide sufficient additional data so a NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate can be completed on the Douvray prospect this year. This first NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate will be followed by a Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA").

Majescor also reports that the NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate of the Douvray prospect is progressing on schedule under the leadership of GeoSim Services Inc. and Buscore Consulting Ltd (www.buscore.net), and in collaboration with Majescor.

The resource estimate, currently planned for release in August, will incorporate some historic and all current drill holes up to and including D-008 as well as a recently acquired bulk density data. An updated resource estimate which will include the remaining drill holes planned for this phase of resource drilling is expected to be completed in October of this year and will form the basis of a first NI 43-101 compliant PEA on the SOMINE project to start by year end.

SIMACT Alliance Copper Gold Inc. ("SACG"), a Majescor 100%-held subsidiary, is the operator of the SOMINE exploration program, per its agreement with partner and project title holder, SOMINE SA.

Core sampling, analysis and quality control

Core samples from the SOMINE Project are cut in half using a rock saw. The half samples are sent to Acme Labs' sample preparation and expediting facility in the Dominican Republic (www.acmelab.com). All analytical work is performed at Acme's laboratory in Santiago, Chile. All samples are analyzed by Agua Regia digestion, 1DX2 ICP-MS method. Any sample registering >1 wt % Cu is re-analysed using a four-acid total digestion by ICP-ES (Code 8TD-Cu), and any sample returning a value of greater than 100 ppb gold is re-analysed using gold Fire Assay AA finish. Acme Labs is an ISO 9001:2008 qualified assayer that performs and makes available internal assaying controls. Quality control protocols in place by Majescor/SACG consist of the insertion of one blank, one reject duplicate and one of three different certified reference standard materials in every batch of 20 samples. Core recovery in the mineralized zones has been averaging greater than 90% to date.

About the SOMINE Project

The SOMINE project consists of a Research Permit covering 50 km2, the mineral rights and obligations of which have been assigned under a Mining Convention executed between SOMINE SA and the State of Haiti on May 5, 2005 and valid until March 9, 2020. SOMINE SA has also carried-out systematic soil sampling and prospecting work over four Prospecting Permits encompassing four 100 km2 areas lying to the East, South and Southeast of the permit subject to the Mining Convention. SOMINE SA has requested the conversion of 3 of 4 prospecting licenses to exploration licences (50 km2 each) and has filed all technical and source documents in support of its application with the Haitian Bureau of Mines ("BME").
