Maudore Approves Operational Shutdown of its Sleeping Giant Operations

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Nov. 7, 2014) - Greg Struble, President and Chief Executive Officer of Maudore Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MAO)(OTCBB:MAOMF)(FRANKFURT:M6L) ("Maudore" or the "Corporation"), announces today that Maudore, together with its subsidiary Aurbec Mines Inc. ("Aurbec"), are moving to complete the final shutdown of their operations at the Sleeping Giant mine and mill 75 kilometers north of Amos Quebec.

At a meeting of the Board of Directors of Maudore held on November 6, 2014, the directors of Maudore passed a resolution to complete the final shutdown of all Sleeping Giant Mine and Mill operations.

After review and discussion on the Corporation's operating plans with regards to its financial position, and in consideration of the potential for viable strategic alternatives in the short term, the board members of Maudore and Aurbec acknowledged that the best course of action will be to completely shut down all underground mining and surface ore processing and place the operations into care and maintenance by the end of November to achieve the lowest possible holding costs going forward.

Despite positive resource reconciliation results achieved during the test mining phase in the new resources accessed at depth, it was determined that there are insufficient ore volumes exposed at this time to pursue a self funding development plan to full scale production in the future.
