Brionor Announces Board and Management Changes and Issuance of Stock Options

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/19/17 -- Brionor Resources Inc. ("Brionor" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BNR) wishes to announce the following changes to its Board of Directors effective May 18, 2017: Robert Ayotte, Chairman of the Company has resigned. Mr. Ayotte served as the Chairman of the Board of Brionor from 2011; prior to which he was the President & CEO from its inception in 2009; as well as its predecessor company (Normabec Mining Resources, which was acquired by First Majestic Silver in 2009). Robert will continue to offer his services to the Company on a foregoing basis in a consulting role. Replacing Robert on the Board and as Chairman is Mr. Denis Hall. Denis is a founding shareholder of Atala Resources Corp. ("Atala"); which was recently acquired by the Company (see Press Release dated May 8, 2017). Denis has over 40 years of mineral exploration experience in the Americas. This includes 20 years of experience in Argentina with Minera Andes Corp., where he was instrumental in finding and delineating the high grade Ag/Au San Jose mine - now in production by McEwen Mining in partnership with Minera Hochshild; as well as the large Los Azules Cu porphyry project (also owned by McEwen via its takeover of Minera Andes).

Further, the Company is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Paul David Robinson to the position of Vice President of Exploration. Paul brings significant South American exploration experience including 7 years as the Country Manager Argentina for Renaissance Gold Inc. / AuEx Ventures Inc., and is thus very familiar with the Atala project portfolio recently acquired by the Company. Lew Lawrick, President & CEO commented, "the additions of Denis as Board Chair and Paul as VP Exploration are key to expediting our strategic focus and exploration activities on the highly prospective, quality exploration portfolio in Santa Cruz Province that we have acquired through Atala. The experience in Argentina and with these projects that both of these professionals bring to Brionor will allow us to literally hit the ground running with our exploration plans over the coming months. At the same time, while we are sorry to lose Robert's valuable input and experience at the Board level, we are very pleased to have him remain close at hand on a consulting basis."

The Company also wishes to announce that it has issued a total of 3.4 million stock options (with an exercise price of $0.065 for a period of 5 years) to its Officers, Directors, and consultants.
