Jourdan Acquires Sault Au Cochons Phosphate Property Forestville, Quebec 
* 100% interest in 28-claim, 15.7 sq. km Sault Au Cochons Phosphate Property, no
* Government results of 3.37% to 4.25% P2O5 
Toronto (Canada), October 28, 2013 /FSC/ - Jourdan Resources Inc. (JOR - TSX
Venture), ("JOURDAN" or the "Company") ( pleased to announce
that it has acquired 100% interest in the 15.7 square kilometre Sault Au Cochons
Phosphate Property (or, "SAC"), composed of 28 claims and located 100 km by road
north northwest of Forestville, 50 km southwest of Jourdan's Dissimieux Lake
Phosphate Property, and 35 km northeast of Jourdan's Cache Phosphate Property,
in the Province of Quebec, Canada. The SAC Phosphate Property is adjacent to
Jourdan's Lac Catherine Phosphate Property. 
The property was staked by Jourdan following extensive compilation and targeting
of prospective geological units along the St. Lawrence North Shore Region
between Saguenay and Baie-Comeau, in proximity to Jourdan's Jazz and Dissimieux
Lake Phosphate Properties (See Map 1). The SAC Phosphate Property covers lenses
of oxide-apatite gabbronorite (OAGN) rich in iron, titanium and phosphorus
(FTP). According to the Quebec Ministry of Natural Resources, "The region shows
strong mineral potential for iron-titanium oxide and apatite deposits associated
with gabbronorites" (Source Natural Resources Quebec Report RP 2009-01(A)).

Sault Au Cochons contains lenses of OAGN. These lenses occur close to the border
and inside the Labrieville Anorthosite (LBV) which is host to Argex Titanium's
Lac Brule deposit. In the region the previously mapped lenses of OAGN have an
approximate strike length of 20 km, and Jourdan has acquired by staking
approximately 15.2 km of these strong mineral potential lenses. There is 11.2 km
of strike length on the SAC Phosphate Property and 4 km of strike length has
been traced on the Lac Catherine Phosphate Property on surface (See Map 2).

On Thursday October 24, 2013, Arianna Phosphate released the results of its Lac
A Paul Feasibility Study: 
"A Net Present Value of US$ 1,910.1 million at an 8% discount rate, an Internal
Rate of Return of 20.7% with a capital payback of 4.4 years before taxes and
mining duties. The mine life estimate is 25.75 years (excluding pre-production)
with an average annual phosphate concentrate production of 3 million tonnes with
a grade of 38.6% P2O5 and with average mill recovery of 90.0%." 
Jourdan continues to target and consolidate low risk and high potential value
phosphate properties along the north shore of the St. Lawrence River near Baie
Comeau, Quebec. The results reported by Arianne for its Lac A Paul Feasibility
Study, as well The Mine Arnaud partnership owned by Investissement Quebec (a
Crown corporation), and Yara International ASA (a Norwegian company),
demonstrate that large economic phosphate deposits in the region where Jourdan
operates is not a unique occurrence.  In the map below, the location of the Mine
Arnaud partnership as well as the Lac A Paul Property are displayed relative to
the location of communities along the St. Lawrence River in Quebec and Jourdan's
Quebec phosphate projects.

Samples collected by the Ministry of Natural Resources, Quebec, from Sigeom,
show surface grab samples with results ranging from 3.37% to 4.25% P2O5 (Tables
1, below and Map 4, below). These samples were collected over an approximate 4km
strike length. The samples appear to correlate with the OAGN rocks that appear
on simplified geology map. Map 2.

"As we continue to expand our phosphate properties in Quebec, the exploration
models we have developed are increasing our targeting speed. Our rapid
assessment of projects has allowed us to put together what we feel is the
premier package of phosphate properties in Canada", state Jourdan's President
and CEO Michael Dehn. "We see Quebec having the potential to be as significant a
phosphate region as North Africa, especially as a future reliable and high
quality source of phosphate for fertilizer as the global population continues to
grow and countries look for increased domestic food security."
