Majescor and SOMINE Intersect 77 g/t au Over 10.5m at Faille B, NE Haiti and Majescor Announces the Closing of the 2ND Tranche of a Non-Brokered Private Placement for $510,000

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Aug. 18, 2011) -


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 on drilling of the Faille B gold prospect on the SOMINE project, NE Haiti. The drill program took place in December 2009, but analyses and results were delayed due to the earthquake of January 2010 in Port-Au-Prince. Since that time, care has been taken to ensure that the samples were properly stored, accounted and retrieved before shipment to a reputable laboratory facility, Acme Analytical Laboratories of Vancouver BC, for analysis. Drill hole FB-09-09 returned a significant intersection of 77 g/t Au uncut over 10.5 metres (see details below).

The Faille B orogenic gold vein prospect is located 1.8 km south of the Douvray Cu-Au deposit on the project. Previous work by a team from the United Nations in the 1970s and 1980s drilled 16 drill holes and excavated >15 trenches across the strike of the quartz-gold vein system that cuts altered volcanic rocks. The UN team revealed that the system is exposed at surface for ~300 m along a NW strike, and up to 100 m across strike, and is open along strike and at depth. Surface sampling by the UN and by SOMINE SA geologists have yielded numerous high grade values (see MJX press release dated Nov. 5 2009). The UN drilling cut vein gold mineralization to a true depth of 100m, and reported a resource (non NI 43-101 compliant) of 1.07 MT @ 2.36 g/t Au, or 81,196 oz. Au, to that depth. The purpose of the drill campaign was to test the extensions of the known historical prospect.

Significant intersections from the 9 DDH of the Somine drill campaign are as follows:

The high grade sample from DDH FB-09-09 is being re-submitted for analysis.

Majescor is presently evaluating these new data along with the historical UN data to determine whether the Faille B represents a stand-alone project, which could be developed ahead of the Douvray and Blondin porphyry Cu-Au prospects on the property.

Dale Schultz, M.Sc. P. Geo (Manitoba and Saskatchewan) of Buscore Consulting, Quito Ecuador, and C. Tucker Barrie, Ph.D., P. Geo., Vice-President Exploration, Majescor, are the qualified people for this press release in compliance with National Instrument 43-101. Drill core samples from the Somine project were sent to the ACME Lab's preparation facility in Maimon, Dominican Republic for processing and are analyzed in ACME Lab's laboratory in Vancouver, Canada (ISO 9001:2008 certified). Core samples were analyzed by methods 3B02 (Fire assay fusion Au Pt Pd by ICP-ES) and 7AR2 (1:1:1 Aqua Regia digestion ICP-ES multi element analysis). For samples that returned values greater than 10 g/t for 3B02, method G6Gr (Screen Metallic) is used.
