Montoro Finds Renewed Interest in Its Pecors Magnetic Anomaly-Serpent River Property Near Elliot Lake, Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/20/14 -- International Montoro Resources Inc. ("Montoro") (TSX VENTURE: IMT)(PINKSHEETS: IMTFF)(FRANKFURT: O4T) - The Serpent River Property, Elliot Lake, Ontario claims consist of 10 mining claims (115 units) covering approximately 1,840 hectares located in Gaiashk & Joubin Townships. Recent renewed interest has been shown in the 3 upper northwest claims known as the Pecors Anomaly. Click following for maps/regional geophysical overview http://ow.ly/tNTbz.

Montoro congratulates Kelly Strong, V.P. of Ontario and UK Operations -Vale, in the recent startup of the Totten Mine (Totten lies 40 km to the west of Sudbury and approx. 50 km from Pecors). This is Vale's sixth operating mine in the Sudbury Basin. A polymetallic orebody with good nickel and copper grades as well as precious metals.

The Uranium and Rare Earths discovered in the southwest portion at Serpent River may prove to be a sideshow to another deposit type. In a 2009 summary of the Ontario Geological Survey field work, a strong geophysical anomaly on the claims that was previously thought to be caused by an iron formation was reexamined. The new interpretation on the Pecors anomaly concludes it may be the result of contact style nickel-copper-PGE mineralization similar to that found to the east at Sudbury. Sediment sampling from Pecors Lake has shown high levels of nickel and chromium, lending further weight to this analysis. The total field magnetic anomaly strikes northwesterly and is about 15 km long and about 4 km wide.

Exploration & Development of the Pecors Anomaly:


--  Int. Montoro, Pele Mtn. & Verbina Resources completed a combined VTEM
    survey in January 2008. An operational report for this survey was
    written by the contractor Geotech Ltd. in February 2008, Project 7112.

--  2009 Ontario Geological Survey field work completed- Open File Report
    6240; Project Unit 09-004. Compilation Mapping, Pecors-Whiskey Lake
    Area, Southern and Superior Provinces

--  February 23, 2010 brief prepared by G. Campbell, MSc. - 'The Pecors
    Magnetic Anomaly located under Huronian Cover - A Possible Cu-Ni-PGE
    Target at the Archean-Proterozoic Boundary, Elliot Lake Area

--  May 5, 2010; Int. Montoro commissioned a report on the southern claims
    group of the Serpent River Property from L.E. Reed Geophysical
    Consultant Inc.

--  May 20, 2011; Int. Montoro initiates a search for and locates 4 historic
    boreholes PW #116, 117, 121 & 122 drilled by Rio Algom in 1959 on the
    eastern side of Pecors Lake. Holes PW 121 & 122 drilled along the south
    and southwestern edge of the Pecors Anomaly, penetrated the Huronian
    sediments and encountered underlying basement rocks at depths of 2002
    feet (610 meters) and 1477 feet (450 meters) respectively. Information
    from the drill holes provides some corroboration of the depths from the
    3D model as reported in the July 6, 2011 report following.

--  July 6, 2011; Int. Montoro commissions a report 'Response of the Pecors
    Magnetic Anomaly' from L.E. Reed ("Reed") Geophysical Consultant Inc.
    Reed ran the anomaly through a 3 dimensional inversion program (UBC,
    Mag3D) to develop an understanding of the three-dimensional shape and
    distribution of the source body for this anomaly. Measurements through a
    section in the center of the anomaly show a depth of 300 to 400 meters
    to the top and as much as 1700 meters from surface to the bottom of the
    magnetic source body. It appears as a broad sill, possibly an intrusion.
    The maximum dimensions of the entire inversion block are estimated at
    7.8 km EW x 3.45 km NS and 2.025 km from surface. Select portions of the
    Reed Interpretation report are posted on the updated Serpent River
    project page on the Company website at www.MontoroResources.com

--  February 2014; Int. Montoro is actively engaging stakeholders in the
    Sault St. Marie & Sudbury Mining Districts to proactively move forward
    the exploration of the Pecors Magnetic Anomaly.

Other:

Neighboring explorer, Pele Mountain Resources (TSX VENTURE: GEM) , has provided the results of an updated economic review of its Eco Ridge Mine rare earth and uranium project in Elliot Lake, Ontario. In its news release dated September 12, 2013, Pele Mountain reports the economic review concludes that the recent increase in mineral resources extends mine life and improves project economics. While this improvement is offset by a reduction in rare earth price forecasts, the net result demonstrates that Eco Ridge economics remain positive.

Int. Montoro is also seeking interested parties in continuing the development of the Serpent River southern portion of its rare earth and uranium property adjoining Pele Mountain's claims east of Eco Ridge.

Options Granted:

The Company has granted incentive stock options to its directors and consultants to purchase up to 3.45 million common shares of the Company, exercisable at a price of $0.05 per share for three years. The stock options will be granted in accordance with the Company's SOP and will have the required four (4) month hold period pursuant to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
