Metanor Provides Bachelor Project Update

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - May 22, 2013) - Metanor Resources Inc. ("Metanor") (TSX VENTURE:MTO) is pleased to provide an update on the development activities currently underway at its Bachelor project.

Metanor produced 1,977 ounces of gold during the month of April, bringing the total number of ounces produced from July 2012 to 17,451. The ounces produced in April came from development ore and also some from stopes for a total of 13,454 tonnes of ore at a combined grade of 4.72 grams / tonne with a 96.8% recovery.

The tonnage milled in April was lower than March because of a production loss due to an electrical problem with the cable feeding the underground section of the project. Once the problem was identified, a water infiltration on the circuit due to quick spring thaw, Metanor quickly proceeded with the required modifications on the circuit to prevent reoccurrence in the future. We are therefore forecasting higher tonnage in May.

In April, the gold extraction was on the two levels in development, 12 and 13. The access on levels 14, 11, and 10 are continuing toward the ore zones. The ore feeding the mill came mainly from one stope currently in development.

With respect to the April 29th press release, we reached the ore zones on level 14on May 8th The main and B veins were both identified. In the coming weeks, we will develop the drifts in the veins on level 14, as well the raises toward level 13 to eventually begin the production activities between these two levels.

Further, due to the volatility of the gold market and as other gold companies have done, Metanor's management adopted a company-wide cost reduction program to ensure that the production ramp up continues unabated.
