Metanor Intersects 7.5 g/t Over 15.2 Meters at Bachelor Mine

VAL-D’OR, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – Aug. 20, 2015) – Metanor Resources Inc. (“Metanor”) (TSX VENTURE:MTO) is pleased to present an update of the underground exploration activity at Bachelor Mine. The drill located on level 6 has intersected 7.5 g/t over 15.2 meters. The drill hole intersected the vein 8-H-14 between level 6 and level 8. The results are in the table below:

Hole No From (m) To (m) length (m)* Au grade
capped (g/t)
6-132 99.6 103.7 4.1 4.1 8-H-14
6-136 81.2 89.8 8.6 5.5 8-H-14
96.1 104.4 8.3 2.6 8-H-14
Including 96.1 98.0 1.9 5.6 8-H-14
6-137 94.1 98.8 4.8 5.4 8-H-14
6-138 103.9 111.3 7.4 6.0 8-H-14
6-156 114.4 129.6 15.2 7.5 8-H-14
6-159 121.7 122.6 0.9 6.4 8-H-14
6-186 98.1 99.6 1.5 2.0 8-H-14

*Core length

The hole 6-156 confirms the extension of the wide zone below level 8 (See the longitudinal section for the holes location). The development activities are presently within 85 meters from the 8-H-14 sector. In addition, a diamond drill bay is planned on level 8 to drill below toward levels 10 and 12.

The development activities reached the mineralized zone in the 8-H-10 sector. Based on the drill results, the access was planned at the east end of the block. The excavation demonstrated that the vein is continuing to the east further than anticipated. The grade to date is 13.9 g/t over a length of 14 meters. The average width of the ore is 2.2 meters. The vein remains open to the east. Additional drillings are planned to the east to verify the extension.

The true width is between 50 and 75% of the core length obtained in diamond drill holes. The cap-off grade used in the analysis is 51.5 g/T or 1.5 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.
