Majescor Reports Drilling Under Way at Mistassini Uranium Property, Otish Mountains, Northern Quebec

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Jan. 14, 2011) - Majescor Resources Inc. ("Majescor" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MJX) is pleased to report that Strateco Resources Inc. ("Strateco") has begun a new core drilling program at the Company's Mistassini Uranium property, located in the Otish Mountains mineral district of northern Québec. The Mistassini property, under option to Strateco, is host to the Lac Mantouchiche uranium showing where in November 2007, the Company drilled an 18.5-metre intersection grading 0.215% U3O8 at a vertical depth of 47 metres in hole MIST-07-03 (see Majescor Press Releases dated February 25 and May 29, 2008).

This new phase of drilling by Strateco will comprise of 1000 m from ten (10) holes, each approximately 100 m in length. The drilling program, designed based on new structural and geological interpretation, aims to continue testing the strike and dip extensions of the Mantouchiche showing as well as that of a new uranium-bearing zone discovered in the hanging wall of the showing in 2009 (11.6 metres grading 0.21% U3O8 in drill hole MIST-09-03; see Majescor press release dated July 9, 2009; final analytical results). The goal of the Mistissini uranium property exploration program remains to discover one or more near-surface economic uranium deposits set in an off-sedimentary basin basement setting.

In June of 2009, Strateco undertook a first phase of follow-up drilling (seven (7) holes for a total of 786 metres), aimed at attempting to define and extend the Lac Mantouchiche prospect based on the results a geophysical interpretation of high-resolution magnetic and electromagnetic data from a helicopter-borne survey carried-out over the Mistassini property earlier that year. The drilling, which tested three areas in the immediate vicinity of the Mantouchiche showing over a total strike length of 125 metres, yielded new and encouraging results. A new uranium-bearing zone was intersected in the immediate vicinity of the Mantouchiche showing. Drill hole MIST-09-03, drilled at -45˚, intersected 11.6 metres grading 0.21% U3O8, including 0.8 metres grading 2.20% U3O8. This new uraniferous zone is located in the hanging wall of the Mantouchiche showing, at a vertical depth of 32 metres. The Mantouchiche showing discovery hole, MIST-07-03, was drilled an angle of -70˚ along the same section as hole MIST-09-03. A second drill hole, MIST-09-04, drilled along the same section at -70˚, confirmed the vertical extension of the new uranium-bearing zone, with an intercept of 0.06% U3O8 over 13.5 metres, including 0.12% U3O8 over 5.3 metres, at a vertical depth of 40 metres. The latter hole did not reach the extension of the Mantouchiche showing, inferred to be at about 170 metres vertical depth. The extension of the Mantouchiche showing was however intersected in drill hole MIST-09-03 at a vertical depth of 64 metres, with an intercept of 0.07% U3O8 over 3.0 metres, including 0.12% U3O8 over 1.3 metres.
