Majescor Resources: Exploration Commences on Brauna Diamond Property in Brazil

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 26, 2005) - Majescor Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MAJ) reports that exploration has started on the Brauna diamond property, which is held on a 40%-60% basis with Vaaldiam Resources. Vaaldiam is the operator of the Joint Venture. The Brauna project is situated in the state of Bahia, in northeastern Brazil. It comprises three exploration concessions which encompass three diamondiferous kimberlite pipes, or blows associated with a laterally extensive system of kimberlite dykes. Based only on the surface exposures, the pipes range in surface area from 0.50 hectares at the Brauna 7 pipe, to 2.5 hectares at the Brauna 4 pipe. Surface exposures of the kimberlite dyke system indicate widths ranging from 0.7 metres up to 5.0 metres and a strike length of approximately 15 kilometres.

The partners have mobilized an exploration crew to the property, which is completing detailed magnetic and electromagnetic surveys to define the kimberlite bodies in advance of a surface sampling and core drilling program expected to start in early November. Initially the surface sampling and drilling program will focus on the delineation of the three known kimberlite pipes, Brauna 3, 4 and 7, in advance of a bulk sampling program expected to start during the first quarter of 2006.

Diamonds were first discovered in the Brauna area during the later part of the 19th century, when diamonds were discovered in alluvial gravels associated with the Itapicuru River, which is situated on Vaaldiam's Brauna property. Diamonds up to 15 carats in size have been reported to have been recovered by garimpeiro miners from gravels within the Itapicuru River and its tributaries. All of the alluvial diamond deposits on the property appear to have been eroded from the Brauna kimberlites and the occurrence of these alluvial diamond deposits highlights the potential of the kimberlites in the area.

The Brauna kimberlites were initially discovered by De Beers Brasil Ltda. in the early 1990s during a large scale reconnaissance sampling program over a large portion of the San Francisco craton in northeastern Brazil. Following the discovery of the kimberlites, De Beers completed a limited surface sampling program, which demonstrated that both the kimberlite pipes and dykes on the Brauna property are diamondiferous. The largest diamonds recovered from individual samples were 0.312 carats (from a sample of kimberlite) and 0.495 carats (from an alluvial sample). All of the samples were of limited size with volumes of less than 5 cubic metres. Only one of the pipes has been tested by shallow drilling.

Vaaldiam acquired a 60% interest in the Brauna property under the terms of a purchase agreement, whereby Vaaldiam paid De Beers Brasil the sum of C$300,000 on behalf of Majescor which represented the balance owed by Majescor under the terms of a purchase agreement between De Beers and Majescor involving the Brauna project. In addition, Vaaldiam issued a total of 150,000 common shares to Majescor.

The Company's interest in the Brauna diamond property will be transferred to Tropic Diamonds Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, along with the rest of the Company's international assets, pursuant to the Company's proposed arrangement announced on October 17, 2005. The Company expects the arrangement to be completed by January or February 2006.
