Maudore Provides Update

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Dec. 3, 2014) - George Fowlie, Chairman of Maudore Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MAO)(OTCBB:MAOMF)(FRANKFURT:M6L) ("Maudore" or the "Corporation"), announces today that a cease trade order preventing trading in the Corporation's shares has been issued by the competent securities regulatory authorities as a result of the failure by the Corporation to file its financial statements for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 within the prescribed delay. The Corporation is currently in the process of completing these financial statements and once they have been filed, the Corporation will apply to have the cease trade order lifted.

The Corporation also announces that Greg Struble has resigned as the Chief Executive Officer of Maudore and of its subsidiary Aurbec Mines Inc. ("Aurbec") effective as of November 30, 2014. His resignation is part of the overall plan to transition the Corporation to a care and maintenance status. Mr Struble will be available to the Corporation on a contractual basis as needed going forward. "Greg and his team have done an exemplary job, under very difficult conditions, to efficiently, conscientiously and safely shut down the mine and mill at Sleeping Giant in order to preserve value in anticipation of improved market conditions as and when they occur," said Mr Fowlie. "We thank him for this on behalf of all of our stakeholders." As a result of this resignation, Mr. Fowlie will serve as interim Chief Executive Officer of Maudore and Aurbec.
