July 17, 2012 - Vancouver

Independent proxy advisory firm Glass, Lewis & Co., LLC has recommended that shareholders of Maudore Minerals Ltd. (TSXV:MAO) (OTCBB:MAOMF) (Frankfurt:M6L) vote in favour of the management's slate of nominees ahead of Maudore's upcoming annual meeting.

An urgent reminder to Maudore shareholders

The voting deadline is 10am (Toronto time) on Tuesday July 17, 2012.

Glass Lewis confirms that Rex Harbour and his group are seeking to hijack Maudore without paying shareholders the normal premium in a change of control. "While the dissident claims that it is not seeking a stealth takeover of Maudore that is exactly what would occur if its proposed slate were approved", Glass Lewis said.

Welcoming Glass Lewis' findings, Ron Shorr, Maudore's chief executive, said: "It's unanimous. Both independent proxy advisers, ISS and Glass Lewis have urgedshareholders to vote for management. Their conclusions confirm that it would be dangerous to change ships inmid-stream. Management has consistently delivered, while the dissidents are merely serial corporate raiders with no experience in the Quebec mining industry."

The dissidents, led by Rex Harbour, have continued in recent days to make false andoutrageous accusations against management's highly-qualified slate of nominees. Shareholders are advised to take their guidance from the independent proxy advisers. ISS noted in its report that management's slate of directors has the skills, experience, relationships and industry knowledge to continue providing strong leadership.

Echoing ISS, Glass Lewis said: "We generally believe that the board and management are in the best position to make decisions regarding the company's governance."
