Maudore Announces Second Quarter 2014 Results

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 08/22/14 -- Maudore Minerals Ltd. ("Maudore" or the "Corporation") - (TSX VENTURE: MAO) (FRANKFURT: M6L) announces its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014 ("Q2-14").

Highlights for Q2-14


--  The Corporation finalized the implementation of its debt restructuring
    agreement with FBC Holdings S.a r.l. ("FBC") pursuant to which:
    --  FBC paid to the Corporation the sum of $4,000,000, in exchange for
        which the Corporation's subsidiary Aurbec Mines Inc. ("Aurbec")
        issued to FBC a 49.9% equity interest and granted to FBC a royalty
        claim entitling FBC to receive, within one year, the sum of
        $4,000,000 plus interest at the rate of 15% per annum, payable out
        of 1% of any gold sales generated by Aurbec and any cash balances in
        excess of $1,000,000;
    --  FBC will make available to Aurbec the sum of $2,000,000, bearing
        interest at the rate of 15% per annum;
    --  FBC will provide funding sufficient to satisfy Aurbec's
        environmental bonding requirements of approximately $900,000;
    --  approximately $4,000,000 of interest owing to FBC under its existing
        credit facility (the "Credit Facility") was converted into principal
        and the Corporation was provided with the ability to satisfy ongoing
        interest payments in 2014 by converting such amounts into principal;
    --  FBC converted $2,000,000 of outstanding principal owing under the
        Credit Facility into 22,222,222 common shares of the Corporation;
        and
    --  the Corporation issued to FBC an additional 15,350,000 common
        shares.
--  Results of the exploration and development drilling plan for the new
    zones being targeted continued to provide good drill results and provide
    direction for future mining potential outside of the remnant areas.
--  The transitional mining plan for the remnant areas did not meet
    anticipated grade and this continues to challenge cash flow required to
    access these zones which are critical to allowing the Corporation to
    meet its debt service and ongoing working capital requirements.
--  In light of the foregoing, the Corporation began a process of reviewing
    its strategic options that would address the funding shortfall and
    maximize shareholder and other stakeholder value within these
    constraints.
--  As part of this process, the Corporation shifted its focus at the
    Sleeping Giant property from exploration and development to resource
    validation of the new zones through test mining.
--  A temporary layoff of 54% of the overall manpower was implemented at the
    end of June 2014, reducing staffing to a level that will only support
    this new zone test mining and custom toll milling as available.
--  In Q2-14, development at the Sleeping Giant property progressed 645
    meters towards the opening of the new zones at depth and the first
    primary panels in the historic areas of the mine.
--  This development accessed the first of three primary stoping blocks in
    the new zones at depth and one primary block in the historical area of
    the mine to permit the initiation of production testing.
--  The development also included the initial sill cut into a second new
    structure at depth, the 30W zone which has never before been exploited
    at the Sleeping Giant property.
--  By quarter end, the first new shrinkage stope in the "Shaft Shadow"
    extension of the historic high grade 30 zone completed mining and began
    final clean down with resource reconciliation to be completed in Q3-14.
--  Toll milling operations with a third party continued in Q2-14.

Financial results


--  Revenues of $2.3 million in Q2-14 coming from the sale of gold at the
    Sleeping Giant mine and custom milling.
--  Net loss of ($1.6) million in Q2-14, or ($0.03) per share, compared with
    a net loss of ($12.0) million, or ($0.36) per share, in Q2-13.

Following this filing of the second quarter results, Mr. Keith Harris has tendered his resignation from the Board of Directors. Robert Pevenstein will step into the role as Chair of the Audit Committee, effective immediately. Mr. Pevenstein is an independent director with significant financial market and audit experience. To replace Mr. Harris on the Audit Committee, the Committee will be proposing Mr. Raynald Vezina to the Board for its approval at its next meeting. "Keith has been a valuable member to the Maudore Board of Directors and we will miss his insights and guidance," said Chairman George Fowlie. "We thank him very much for his contribution"
