Metanor Intersects 15.3 g/t Au Over 6.6 Meters

VAL-D’OR, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – Dec. 8, 2015) – Metanor Resources Inc. (“Metanor”) (TSX VENTURE:MTO) is pleased to provide this update on its exploration drilling program, from the surface, on the Moroy property located south of Bachelor mine (the South Zone). A hole intersected 15.3 g/t over 6.6 meters (MO-15-68).

Two drills are presently drilling on this property. Many holes were drilled around the discovery, and the results are published in the table below. See press release from September 22nd 2015 regarding the discovery south of Bachelor Mine. These holes confirm a multi vein system which one is represented on the section diagram below, and determines the orientation of the veins with more precision. The interpretation to date shows that one of the veins has an East-West orientation, and a dip near 70 degree to the North.

The next holes will focus on increasing the size of the zone since it is open in all directions. Furthermore, a previous hole drilled in 2013, from level 14 at the Bachelor Mine, toward this zone intersected 5.2 g/t over 2.4 m, 600 m below surface. More holes are being assayed, and the results will be published as they are available.

*Core length

The true width is between 55 and 70% of the core length obtained in diamond drill holes. The cap-off grade used in the analysis is 31 g/t or 1 oz Au. The samples were assayed by fire-assay at the Metanor assay lab. 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 external assay lab.
