Metanor Intersects 13.4 g/t Over 9.5 m at Bachelor

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 01/16/14 -- Metanor Resources Inc. ("Metanor") (TSX VENTURE: MTO) is pleased to release this update on the ongoing underground drilling program.

Metanor continues with the underground drilling program at its Bachelor mine to extend the known mineralized zones and increase the mineral resources. The drilling program completed since our November 7th press release is targeting the Main zone in the Hewfran sector (H), E, and 06 zone.

The Main vein in the Hewfran sector, identified as "H" in the table below, is the lateral extension immediately west of the Main vein at Bachelor. The "06" zone corresponds to a new sector of the mine west of the known sector on levels 13 and 14. The development in ore in the zone "06", above level 13, the zone "E" on level 14, and zone "H" on level 10 began in the last quarter because of the proximity to the current infrastructure.

Other drill holes from level 13 targeted the upper extension of the "E" zone where a drift on level 13 exposed a gold structure (see August 22nd press release). These recent drillings confirmed the continuity downward of this gold mineralization as well as upward.

The table below summarizes the significant intersections obtained in these structures in the last few weeks:
