Pro-Or : Latest Menarik Property Drill Results

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 18, 2005) - Ressources Minieres Pro-Or inc. (TSX VENTURE:POI), announces the results from its latest drilling campaign on its JAMES Bay Menarik property. The Company wanted to define the lateral and vertical extensions of 6 chromite mineralized zones defined in preceding drill campaigns. To date, 37 chromite zones have been identified on the property.

During the latest campaign 24 drill holes were completed for a total depth of 3,944.5 m. Realized by Forages Mercier, under the supervision of Yvan Buissiere, a consulting engineer-geologist and a qualified person according to National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Buissiere has also reviewed this press release. The cores were sent for assay to the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS) laboratory in Quebec City. The results are as follows, and are available at the following address:

Holes # MK-05-18 et MK-05-25 were sunk at the western limits of the peridotite formation to delineate Cr-1 zone to the west. Hole MK-05-22 target was to test the western extension of the Cr-16 zone. Pro-Or wishes to draw the reader's attention to the large mineralized intersections as well as to higher than previously announced Cr2O3 grades. Pro-Or will now hire a recognized independent mining consulting firm to update the Menarik chromite resource calculations.
