Noront Resources Ltd.: Drilling Resumes At Windfall Lake

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 25, 2005) - Noront Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:NOT) :

Surface exploration work continues on Noront's wholly owned Windfall Lake property in Urban Township, Quebec. The summer program consisting of stripping, bedrock sampling and geological mapping has been completed and diamond drilling will continue to test the large mineralized gold system beneath the sub-surface.

The recently completed surface stripping program over a 800 meter by 800 meter mineralized area at the bedrock surface exposed several structural systems deforming the felsic-intermediate host volcanic rocks. The most important structural deformation strikes in a NE-SW direction and contains significant gold values accompanied with pyrite, tourmaline mineralization and related alteration products.

Results from the summer stripping program are being correlated with the diamond drilling carried out to date. A recent comprehensive, computer oriented geochemical study compiled by Tracy Armstrong of P&E Mining Consultants Inc. dated September 20, 2005, interpreted the drilling results.

Computer derived alteration patterns have outlined eleven structures on the Windfall Lake property, manifesting themselves in only four principal directions. Lines of intersections of the eleven structural planes identified by Gemcom software program and their traces have revealed five possible ore shoot directions.

Two of the possible ore shoot directions correlate with the NE-SW orientation of the most important mineralized trends in the surface stripping program.

The next drilling program as recommended by Tracy Armstrong, a Professional Geologist in the Province of Quebec, will test the NE-SW structural trends close to significant gold intersections previously encountered in drill holes that may be indicating ore shoots at depth.
