NEWS RELEASE Tres-Or Update on Fontana and DuvayGold Projects and Financing


Vancouver, B.C. – May 9, 2017 - Tres-Or Resources Ltd. (“Tres-Or”) (TSX-V: TRS, OTCPK: TRSFF) is pleased to provide an exploration update on the Fontana and Duvay Gold Projects covering over 8,700 hectares 60 km north of Val-d’Or, Quebec.

Fontana Gold Project, Quebec

Tres-Or has completed the first phase of its Fontana Gold Project drill program. This first part of the drill program was intended to confirm strong gold mineralization reported from the Hooper and Bunkhouse Zones based on historical drilling and to extend our understanding of the structural controls.

Four drill holes totaling 897 m were completed to date. The Hooper and Bunkhouse zones were intersected in all 4 drill holes. Drill core logging and sampling is underway and results are expected over the next few weeks and will assist in planning future work on the property. This first drill program was designed to confirm significant gold mineralization reported in historical drill reports as well as to enhance understanding of the structural controls. At present, true thickness of the zones is not known and is the subject of Tres-Or’s investigations.

“We have plans to resume drilling to further define the strong gold mineralization reported from the Hooper and Bunkhouse zones, and to test other reported priority gold occurrences across the Fontana Project,” said Laura Lee Duffett, Tres-Or’s President and CEO.

Fontana hosts significant gold mineralization from historical drilling. The Bunkhouse zone appears to extend 600 m or more from the main Fontana shear southwest past the Hooper zone, based on reported drilling, surface channel sampling, trenches and bulk samples. The Hooper zone extends west and northwest more than 100 m from these same reports. Some of the best reported intersections from more than 300 historical drill holes at Fontana are from near the intersection of the Hooper and Bunkhouse zones, including 17.5 g/t Au over 38.1 m (192.9 m to 231.1 m in drill hole JB200B) and 17.1 g/t Au over 13.7 m (165.6 m to 179.4 m in drill hole JB200) from 1989 drilling.

Tres-Or has a 100% interest in the Fontana Gold Project, subject to underlying royalties. Fontana can be easily reached by paved and gravel roads including good access to the Fontana shaft and other workings.

Duvay and Chenier Gold Project, Quebec

Tres-Or optioned to Secova Metals Corp. (“Secova”) the Duvay and Chenier Gold Projects which surround Fontana. The Duvay and Chenier Gold Project comprises 174 claims (7,767 ha) adjacent to Fontana on all sides. Secova can earn a 65% interest by incurring $3,250,000 in exploration over a three (3) year period including $750,000 by the end of September 2017(refer to Tres-Or news release dated September 15, 2016).

Tres-Or is Operator. Secova management (Brad Kitchen, CEO and Morgan Good, President) are at the Duvay site this week discussing the 2017 exploration program with the Tres-Or team. Exploration will include drilling multiple known gold occurrences and high priority targets. “We are very pleased to have Brad and Morgan on-site at the Duvay project this week to confirm

exploration and drilling plans”, said Laura Lee Duffett, Tres-Or’s President and CEO.

About Duvay:

Visible gold was discovered at Duvay in the late 1930’s. Gold mineralization is associated with the northwest trending Duvay shear zone and intersecting northeast faults. Historical gold results from Duvayreturned up to 402 g/t over 0.36m, 76.8 g/t over 0.46m and 34.6 g/t over 0.46m. Drilling and test pitting by Tres-Or supports this potential, with the best analytical drill results of 83.194 g/t gold (Au) over 1.0 m and 5.217 g/t Au over 1.0 m as well as 8 other intervals between 0.42 g/t Au and 1.93 g/t Au, for intervals between 1 and 7 m. Small (10 tonne) bulk samples were excavated and processed by Tres-Or in a test plant built at the Duvay site. The richest pit test (DVP-002) yielded a sample grade of 0.77 g/t Au from 10 tonnes, with concentrate values averaging 369.43 g/t Au (Duvay Property Technical 43-101 Report, October 31, 2012).


Tres-Or has completed a private placement for $115,000 by the issuance of 2,300,000 units at a unit price of $0.05 (the “Offering”), subject to TSX Venture Exchange approvals. Each unit will consist of one common share and one additional common share warrant for a period of two years from issuance at an exercise price of $0.08 per common share. The share issuance is subject to a four month hold period expiring on September 9, 2017.

In addition, shareholders of Tres-Or have exercised 600,000 warrants at $.0.05 for proceeds to the Company of $30,000.

Proceeds from the private placement and warrant exercise will be used to advance the Company’s gold and diamond assets located in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue regions of northwestern Quebec and for general corporate purposes.
