Maudore Minerals provides an Update on its progress towards a revised Consensual Restructuring

MONTREAL, Jan. 20, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Further to its press release of January 10, 2014, Maudore Minerals Ltd. ("Maudore" or the "Company") (MAO: TSX-Venture; MAOMF: US OTCQX; M6L: Frankfurt Exchange) reports on its recent progress towards reaching a revised consensual restructuring of debts owed to FBC Holdings S.A.R.L ("FBC").

As a result of the Company not closing its previously announced rights offering, its cash position has been strained. FBC has therefore agreed to provide the Company with bridge financing in the amount of $722,000 by allowing the Company to access funds that were previously deposited in an interest escrow account established in favor of FBC.  These funds, together with Maudore's existing funds, are expected to enable Maudore to fund its operations during the negotiation of the revised restructuring of its debts owed to FBC and its other major creditors. The Company is optimistic that such negotiation will be successfully concluded in a timely manner and that it will result in a more permanent funding solution to the Company's financing needs being put into place; however, no assurances can be given regarding the timing or the outcome of such negotiation process.
