VAL-D’OR, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – Dec. 3, 2015) – Metanor Resources Inc. (“Metanor”) (TSX VENTURE:MTO) is pleased to provide this update on its underground exploration drilling program at Bachelor Mine. A drill located on level 8 in the Hewfran sector of Bachelor Mine intersected 6.3 g/t over 4.2 meters (hole 8-109). These holes listed below intersected the H-10 vein below level 8 and confirm the trend at depth. See attached longitudinal figure. A drill is now on level 14 to verify the extension of this trend 300 meters below level 8.

The results are in the table below:
