Metanor Resources Inc.: Exploration Update on the Barry Property

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - June 15, 2015) - Metanor Resources Inc. ("Metanor") (TSX VENTURE:MTO) announces that in the coming weeks, a drill campaign will begin in close proximity to the current pit. The results will be published once available.

Metanor is very encouraged by the announcements made by Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd. and Oban Mining Corporation in the past week, as they are investing in the Urban-Barry area which surrounds Metanor's Barry Property. This suggests the potential of the area and the importance of Metanor's Barry property, covering over 7,336 hectares, for Metanor's future. In November 2010, SGS Canada Inc published a NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Barry Property which contains the following resources:

Class Tonnes Au g/T uncapped Au g/T capped Au Ounces (capped)
Indicated 7,701,000 1.29 1.25 309,500
Inferred 10,411,000 1.65 1.41 471,950

Resources above 0.5 g/T, capping 35 g/T on assay.

The nearest mill in operation in the Urban Barry area is the mill at the 100% owned Bachelor Mine. Presently, Metanor operates the Bachelor mill at its nominal capacity. However, when Hydro-Québec completes the construction of the new electrical sub-station 25 km away from Bachelor mine in September 2015 which will increase the total available power at the mine, Metanor could, with a minimal investment, increase the mill capacity to treat ore from another mine site. As previously stated, the medium term goal of the Company is to bring a second mine into production to further enhance cost reduction and increase revenues.
