Monarques Consolidates its Val-d'Or Area Gold Properties

QUÉBEC CITY, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - June 26, 2014) - MONARQUES RESOURCES INC. ("Monarques" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:MQR) (FRANKFURT:MR7) is pleased to announce that it has decided to consolidate its 13 recently acquired gold properties into 4 large properties (see map). These properties, all wholly owned by the Corporation, are located in the Val-d'Or area, in the vicinity of the prolific Cadillac Break.

The Company was able to acquire all 13 properties just in the past 18 months. In the difficult market for junior exploration companies, Monarques' strategy was to acquire gold properties, ideally with known mineral resources and accumulated work credits with the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources. The four new properties cover a total area of 193 km2 and consist of 600 mineral claims, two mining concessions, and one mining lease with a cumulative total of over $9.5 million in work credits.

"Our goal was to consolidate part of the region, and we have successfully achieved that," said Jean-Marc Lacoste, President and Chief Executive Officer. "The consolidation of these assets into four large properties will facilitate their development and help us achieve our ultimate goal of becoming a gold producer in the medium term."

The four new large properties are: Croinor Gold, Simkar Gold, Regcourt Gold and Belcourt Gold.
