Metanor Amends Bachelor Gold Stream

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Sept. 18, 2017) - Metanor Resources Inc. (the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:MTO) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an amending agreement with Sandstorm Gold Ltd., ("Sandstorm") effectively reducing the existing gold steam on the Bachelor mine (which required Metanor to sell 20% of its gold production at the fixed price of US$500) and replacing it with a 3.9% net smelter return royalty (NSR) on all minerals produced from the Bachelor and Barry properties (includes the surrounding exploration properties), of which 2.1% of the royalty can be repurchased upon payment of US$2M for each property, thereby reducing the NSR to 1.8%.

These new terms will become effective once the Corporation has delivered to Sandstorm, 12,000 ounces of gold at the fixed price of $US500. As part of the consideration, the Corporation will issue a total of 3,164,156 common shares to Sandstorm, at the deemed price of $0.77 per common share, for an aggregate value of CA$2,436,400, upon closing of the transaction expected to take place on or about September 29, 2017, and, grant Sandstorm a right of first refusal for any royalty, metal stream or similar type of financing on the Bachelor and Barry properties.

Greg Gibson, Chairman and & CEO, stated: "With Metanor's sound financial situation and this added flexibility for growth, we will be increasing our drill campaigns on the Bachelor property to unlock its full potential; the goal being to increase ounce production and revenue. In addition, Barry's recent drill success gives us every indication that this once producing asset could very likely be revisited."

The common shares to be issued will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of issue and this transaction remains subject to the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.
