Metanor Intersects 9.71 g/T Over 3.11m and 6.92 g/T Over 10.10m at Bachelor Lake

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 27, 2011) - Metanor Resources Inc. ("Metanor") (TSX VENTURE:MTO) is pleased to provide another update of its activities at the Bachelor Lake Project.

As of today, the 15,000 meter diamond drilling campaign announced on June 16th (ref. press release) has completed 3,000 meters of drilling from surface in the Hewfran West sector. The sector where the drilling is being performed is 850 meters west from the Bachelor Lake mine shaft. Metanor obtained the following results from the first seven completed drill holes:

(*) All intercepts represent the true core length).

The drilling conducted in the Hewfran West Sector is focused mainly on the Hewfran West A gold structure. This structure already contains resources (indicated and inferred; ref Technical Report NI 43-101 Stantec, Feb. 2011) and is accessible from a drift on level 6 at Bachelor Lake Mine. The drilling targeted a zone between 100 and 330 meters below surface and all drill holes to date have intersected the Hewfran West A structure. The alteration type and the associated gold mineralization were observed at different degrees in all the drill holes completed to date.

Metanor Resources is very encouraged by these first results, and is actively continuing its drilling program from surface with the goal of increasing the resources in the Hewfran sector. Moreover, Metanor plans to begin, in October, the drilling of the Main and B veins from level 15 at the Bachelor Lake Mine.

The true width is approximately 90% of the core length obtained in diamond drill holes. The samples were assayed by fire-assay at the Metanor assay lab. The quality control program of the assay results (QA QC) put in place by Metanor includes a minimum of 10% of controlled assays being conducted as well as verification by an independent external assay lab.
