Metanor Resources Inc. is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with a syndicate of agents co-led by Industrial Alliance Securities Inc. and National Bank Financial Inc. (the Agents) for a private placement of up to 25,000,000 Units of Metanor at a price of $0.34 per Unit (the Offering Price) for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $8,500,000 (the Offering).

Each Unit will consist of one common share (the “Common Shares”) of Metanor and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (the “Warrants”). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share over a period of two years at a price of $0.40.

The Offering is being conducted on a best efforts basis by the Agents and is expected to close on or about December 19, 2011 (the Closing Date), subject to the receipt of applicable regulatory approvals, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

In addition, Metanor has granted the Agents an option (the Over-allotment Option) to offer up to an additional 15% of the Units sold pursuant to the Offering, at the Offering Price, exercisable in whole or in part at any time up to 30 days after the Closing Date, to cover over-allotments, if any.

The aggregate proceeds raised from the issuance of the Units will be used by Metanor to incur exploration expenditures and for working capital purposes.

Metanor has agreed to pay the Agents a cash commission of 6.5% of the gross proceeds of the Offering.

The securities to be issued will be subject to a hold period of 4 months and a day from the Closing Date.
