Mineralized zone extended at the Barry Open Pit


    VAL-D'OR, QC, Sept. 26 /CNW Telbec/ - Metanor Resources Inc. (MTO: TSX-V)
is pleased to announce that the first assay results of sampling of extended
stripped area could expand the resources of the Barry deposit. Interesting
gold values were obtained from classified waste material.
    Stripping work executed lately on the Barry project extended mineralized
zones on the northwest and southeast flank of the main zone. The bulk sample
was initiated in the northeast extremity of the stripped area and is designed
to determine the main economic parameters of the deposit. The starting point
is located in lower ground and all air track drilling is completed for a
10,000 tonnes blast in this area. Based on previous information this material
is supposed to be composed of 50% ore and 50% waste. However, a channel sample
taken across this waste material returned a gold intersection grading
3,44 g/t Au over 7,8 m, including 18,35 g/t Au over 1.0 m. Following these
results, all the 10,000 tonnes that will be blasted this week will be sent at
the Bachelor mill where mill rehabilitation is 95% complete. In order to
recover most of the gold at the Barry deposit, all the material already
considered as waste based on previous work and crossed by thin fractures with
even low sulphide amount will now be systematically channel sampled and
assayed for gold.
    The Barry property is located in the Urban-Barry belt, approximately
65 kilometres south-east of the Bachelor Lake Mine where Metanor is presently
working to rehabilitate the surface installations, including the Mill and the
tailings. After the complete acquisition of the Barry I Property and the
surrounding Barry United Property the Barry property consists of 206 claims
covering 3276 hectares.
    The Gold Resources for the Barry deposit were re-evaluated by Systèmes
Géostat International Inc. in compliance with NI 43-101 and are now estimated
with a 2 g/t Au Cut-off at:


SOURCE CATEGORY TONNAGE GRADE (g/t) CONTAINED GOLD ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Indicated Resource 385,000 mt 4.23 g/t Au 52,300 oz. Inferred Resource 966,000 mt 4.07 g/t Au 126,600 oz. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- This new resource evaluation is incorporating all recent drill results performed by Murgor (summer 2006) and is extending the mineralized zones almost 300 meters in a southwesterly direction (Press release of May 8, 2007). Mr. André Tremblay, P Eng. is the qualified person pursuant to National Instrument 43-101 and supervised the technical information presented in the news release.
