Recent drilling has focused on the Main vein in the Hewfran sector, identified as H in the table above, which 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. 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 Metanor press release dated August 22, 2013).  The drilling activity has confirmed the continuity of this gold mineralization, both downward and upward.

Sandstorm's President & CEO, Nolan Watson commented, "The positive drill results and continued ramp up of gold production at Bachelor Lake is encouraging for Sandstorm shareholders."

Sandstorm has a gold stream agreement to purchase 20% of the life of mine gold produced at Bachelor, at a per ounce price of US$500 per ounce.

Pascal Hamelin, P.Eng, Vice-president of Operations at Metanor, is the Qualified Person under NI 43-101 responsible for reviewing and approving the technical information contained in this news release.
