Maudore Minerals Ltd. Announces Private Placement Financing

MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA--(Marketwire - Dec. 1, 2011) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE U.S.

Maudore Minerals Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MAO)(OTCBB:MAOMF)(FRANKFURT:M6L) is pleased to announce the arrangement of a non-brokered private placement financing on a best efforts basis of 714,286 units ("Units") @ $8.40 per Unit for gross proceeds of $6,000,000, with an overallotment option to purchase a further 714,286 Units at the same price for potential added proceeds of $6,000,000.

CEO Ronald Shorr stated that he is delighted to do another financing "with such a large premium to the market price. This is a continuation of our efforts to fund Maudore in the most minimally dilutive manner to shareholders."

Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company, issued as a flow-through share ("Flow-Through Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant, with each whole common share purchase warrant, ("Warrant") exercisable at $8.40 per share for a period of 18 months from the date the Warrant is issued. The price per Unit of $8.40 represented a premium of approximately 53% to Maudore's closing price on November 30, 2011 on the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company may pay a finder's fee of approximately 5% of the gross proceeds. The Flow-Through Shares and Warrants will be subject to a four-month hold period commencing the date the Flow-Through Shares and Warrants are issued. This private placement is subject to the conditional approval of TSX Venture Exchange.

After this private placement, Maudore will have 25,801,330 shares outstanding (26,515,616 if overallotment is used), or 28,991,312 fully diluted (30,062,741 if overallotment is used). Proceeds from the sale of these Units will be used for exploration on the Company's Comtois Gold Project and the associated land area with a recent emphasis on expanding the resource in various directions.
