VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - March 17, 2015) - Metanor Resources Inc. ("Metanor") (TSX VENTURE:MTO) is pleased to announce that it has intersected 6.1 g/T over 6.8 meters near the drill station on level 13 at Bachelor Mine.

The recently drilled sector corresponds to the junction of the «Main» and the «E» veins between levels 13 and 14. The «E» vein was initially identified in 2014 (see press release dated January 16th and February 6th 2014), and is located to the west of the Bachelor Mine. Since then, a drill station was developed on level 13 to drill with better angles and the drill campaign began in the last 2 weeks. The campaign is continuing in this sector between levels 13 and 14 and results will be announced as they become available.

The potential stopes could be developed within months since the junction is located within 30 meters of the existing excavations on level 13 and 14.
