FSC / Press Release Jourdan Acquires Sault Au Cochons Phosphate Property Forestville, Quebec * 100% interest in 28-claim, 15.7 sq. km Sault Au Cochons Phosphate Property, no royalties * 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") (www.jourdan.ca)is 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)). Map 1: Jourdan Resources' Phosphate Property Locations, Quebec http://jourdan.ca/pdf20131028MAP1.pdf 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).

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. Map 3: Major Phosphate Players in Quebec http://jourdan.ca/pdf/20131028MAP3.pdf 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.
