Maudore Files Notice of Intention to Make a Proposal

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Sept. 8, 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"), have each filed a Notice of Intention ("NOI") to make a proposal under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (Canada) ("BIA").

At a meeting of the Board of Directors of Maudore held on September 7, 2014, the directors of Maudore passed a resolution to file a NOI in respect of Maudore. Immediately following that meeting, Board of Directors of Aurbec held a meeting at which they passed a similar resolution to file a NOI in respect of Aurbec.

A NOI is the first stage of a process under the BIA which allows for a financial restructuring through a formal proposal (a "Proposal") made to creditors for the settlement of the indebtedness owing to them. Once the NOI has been filed, Maudore and Aurbec will each be granted up to an initial 30 days of protection from their creditors in order to enable them to pursue the option of a Proposal. During this period, the two companies will continue in their efforts to preserve value for all stakeholders.

There can be no guarantee that either Maudore or Aurbec will be successful in their restructuring efforts. The failure of either of them to achieve their restructuring goals could result in them becoming bankrupt.

Pursuant to the NOI filings, Samson Belair/Deloitte & Touche Inc. has been appointed as the trustee in the Proposal proceedings of Maudore and Aurbec, and in that capacity will monitor and assist the companies in their restructuring efforts.
