(1)  The average selling price is calculated on the ounces of gold sold    
     since December (16,563oz). The ounces sold in October and November    
     were credited against the capital cost.                               
                                                                           
(2)  The cash cost per ounce sold includes the extraction cost, milling    
     costs, on-site costs, and the royalties.                              

During this quarter (Q3), Metanor milled 60,497 tonnes of ore at a feed grade of 6.7 g/T and a recovery rate of 96.8% producing 12,641 ounces of gold. The cash cost, per ounce sold, increased in this last quarter due to the increased underground drilling and development work. Further, Metanor increased the underground supply inventory to allow the start-up of two new levels.

Outlook for the coming quarters

Metanor continues to develop new drifts to the west which will allow access to new zones and stabilize production. Metanor will further increase the diamond drilling in the coming months to eventually add new resources and reserves.
