Metanor Intersects 17.66 g/t Over 12.55 m at Bachelor

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Sept. 4, 2013) - Metanor Resources Inc. ("Metanor") (TSX VENTURE:MTO) is pleased to provide this update on the current drilling program and exploration drifting at its Bachelor project.

Metanor is continuing the underground drilling program of the « Main », « A » and « E » veins, from various levels of the mine. Also, drifts are being developed to access future stopes from and between levels 10 and 14.

East Extension: Metanor continues to drill the mineralized structure (Main and A veins) in the east sector of mine. A recent drill hole completed from level 13 intersected the junction between the two veins at approximately 15 meters below level 12. The drill hole intersected the mineralization over 12.55 meters at a grade of 17.66 g/T (The true ore thickness of the two structure is estimated at 8 meters).

The table below summarize the intersections obtained in these structures:

Hole From (m) To (m) Width (m)* Au Grade (g/T) Zone
13-082 92.22 104.77 12.55 17.66 A & Main
Inluding 92.22 100.58 8.36 20.6 A
And 100.58 104.77 4.19 11.8 Main

The West Extension:

In the last few weeks, a drift was excavated in the «E» vein and in the extension west of the «E» vein. In total, over 160 meters of drifts were excavated. The structure within the «E» vein was developed over 91 meters. Economical grades were intersected over 60 meters of drifts averaging a diluted grade of 4,94 g/T (1258 Metric Tonnes). A section of that same drift averaged 8,17 g/T diluted over 22 meters.

The development in that sector is now progressing in the west extension of the Bachelor veins system offset by the «E» vein. To date, 70 meters of drifting were completed in the ore structure. The average diluted grade for that development was 4,05 g/T (1711 metric tonnes). The mineralization thickness encountered varied between 2,4 meters and 15,9 meters. The drifting progress still continues in the ore. This is a new sector that was unknown until recently. The «E» as well as the west extension veins were identified through drill holes (holes 13-061 to 74 and 13-095 to 100) completed from level 13 (See previous press release:24-08-13, 06-06-13, 29-05-13, and 29-04-13).

Exploration drifts are also being prepared on level 12, 13, and 14 to continue the exploration of these new structures which are not included in the current mineral resource ( 43-101 technical Report published April 26 2011 on SEDAR) of the Bachelor Project.

Metanor is very encouraged by the results to date in the exploration of these new gold structures and by the progress made in the project ramp up. These new results show the significant extension of the veins and consequently the increase in the available resource.

Ghislain Morin, President and CEO, stated that "We are very excited over the discovery of these new zones where the significant thickness is up to 15 meters in some areas and is so close to our current infrastructure. The next resource-reserve compilation will be very interesting."

The samples were assayed by fire-assay at the Metanor assay lab. The quality control program of the assay results (QA QC) adopted by Metanor includes a minimum of 10% of controlled assays being conducted as well as verification by an independent external assay lab.
