Metanor Confirms the Extension of the Gold Structure at Depth on the Moroy Property

VAL-D’OR, QUÉBEC–(Marketwired – April 20, 2016) – Editors Note: There is a map associated with this Press Release.

Metanor Resources Inc. (« Metanor ») (TSX VENTURE:MTO) is pleased to announce the drilling results for the new zone on the Moroy property located 1 km from the Bachelor mill.

The drilling from the last few weeks allowed to define the extension of the gold structure from surface down to 650 m deep; the structure was intercepted by drill holes at depth of 50, 100, 400, 600, and 650 meters, see section below.

These first 3,800 meters of the drill campaign also allowed the confirmation of a sub-vertical structure ranging between 1 and 5 meters. Moreover, the drill campaign in 2015 confirmed the presence of a gold structure 570 m long east to west.

*Core length

Meanwhile, the 2016 drilling campaign expected to total 60,000 meters is progressing. A first drill is focusing on the zones near surface, from 0 to 150 m deep, at a drill spacing of 25 m between each hole so mineral resources may be defined at the end of the campaign. A second drill rig will target the same structure at depths ranging between 150 and 300 m and a third drill rig, expected to begin in May, will aim to define the lateral extensions to the east and to the west.

Metanor estimates that the mineralized intercepts’ true thicknesses reach 70 to 95% of the drill cores. A capping of 31 g/t was used or 1 Au ounce. The Company uses a rigorous, industry-standard, QA/QC program. The samples were assayed by fire-assay at the Metanor assay lab. Blanks, duplicates and certified reference standards are inserted into the sample stream to monitor laboratory performance. The quality control program of the assay results (QA/QC) adopted by Metanor includes a minimum of 10% of controlled assays being conducted as well as verification by an independent ALS-certified assay laboratory in Val-d’Or, Québec. Results of the spot checks were consistent with those reported.
