METANOR EXPANDS ITS «B» VEIN ABOVE LEVEL 10 BY INTERSECTING 22.75 g/T OVER 2.3 METERS AT BACHELOR.

August 15, 2014 – Val-d’Or, Québec, Canada: Metanor Resources Inc. (“Metanor”) (TSX – V: MTO) is pleased to provide this update on the ongoing underground drilling program at the Bachelor Mine.

Four drills are currently active underground which has resulted in over 5,500 meters of drilling per month in the last 4 months, of which an average of 1,600 meters per month was exploration drilling.  Since the last drilling update released March 31st 2014, Metanor has drilled the «A» vein, Hewfran East, and the «B» vein and the results are summarized in the table below. Results from the forth drill,  on level 14,  are now being compiled.

The drill results in the «B» vein on level 10 confirm the expansion of the vein above level 10 up to level 8.  The drilling in the «A» vein also confirmed the expansion of that vein between level 6 and 10.  The drilling in the Hewfran zone allowed the discovery of a parallel vein south of the Hewfran East vein on level 8.  Some results identified by a question mark cannot be linked to an existing vein, and are being interpreted by the geologists.  All these new zones are being added to the original resource published in 2011.  Because of the proximity of the «A» vein to our current infrastructure, the mining of this vein will start in the coming months.

The table below summarizes the significant intersections obtained for these sectors:
