Maudore Shifts Development Focus from Vezza Project to Sleeping Giant Mine

MONTREAL, July 16, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Maudore Minerals Ltd. (MAO: TSX-Venture; MAOMF: US OTC; M6L: Frankfurt Exchange) has decided to target high-grade gold opportunities at its Sleeping Giant property and suspend development at the Vezza Project. Structural 3D re-evaluation of the geology, especially veins and structures at Sleeping Giant has resulted in the identification of multiple high-grade opportunities within the existing mine environment. This shift in development in light of our new understanding also offers a better opportunity for future resource growth.

Greg Struble, President and CEO, commented, "With this new 3D geological model we have been able to identify areas with previously unrecognized gold potential within the immediate mine area that are accessible from existing workings. We believe this will provide the backbone for our successful re-entry into Sleeping Giant."

Maudore plans to finish mining and processing of developed mineralized material at Vezza over the next several months whilst deploying a small workforce at Sleeping Giant to prepare the underground workings for exploration and remnant mining. By curtailing all development at the Vezza Project, the Company expects to process this mineralized material developed thus far for much lower costs.

At Sleeping Giant, we expect mining of select high-grade remnant stopes to commence in late Q3 after the start of an underground drill program to target previously untested extensions of the high grade 20 and 30 zones and to test other high potential veins in specific parts of the mine. The mining of remnant stopes at Sleeping Giant will optimize infrastructure and personnel during this underground drilling program. Mining of these remnants could be phased out over the next 12 months, pending development of sufficient new resources to allow for full scale operations.

The impact of these changes will be a net reduction of 39% in the workforce, predominantly contractors. Maudore regrets the hardship this will cause employees, contractors, their families and the local community. However, this action is required to allow the Company to operate within the current low gold price environment and positions it for an improvement in price.

The principle drivers for the move to Sleeping Giant have been grade and the need to preserve cash during this market downturn. Our 3D re-evaluation of Sleeping Giant indicates the potential for significantly higher grades than our current Vezza resource.
