September 19, 2013 (Source: Jourdan Resources Inc.) — 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 22.5 square kilometre Cache Phosphate Property (or, “Cache”), composed of 40 claims and located 100 km northeast of Saguenay, 100 km southwest of Jourdan’s Dissimieux Lake Phosphate Property, and 90 km south of Jourdan’s Jazz Phosphate Property, in the Province of Quebec, Canada.

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 2). The Cache Phosphate Property covers a belt of gabbroic rocks rich in apatite (phosphate) and ilmenite (titanium). These rocks have many similarities to the Mirepoix Phosphate property that has been drilled by Arianne Phosphate located 20 km west of the Cache Phosphate Property. The band of gabbroic rocks on the Cache Phosphate Property has been traced for several kilometres on surface.

The advantage of Cache, when compared to other occurrences of titanium-phosphate, is the extent of the host unit. The gabbroic band extends between 0.5 and 1 kilometres wide and has been followed on surface for at least 10 km (See Map 3).

“We are excited at the results of our summer regional targeting program. The Cache project is the first phosphate property completely compiled and staked by Jourdan” states Michael Dehn, President and CEO. “The Cache Phosphate Property supplements our Jazz and Dissimieux Lake Phosphate Properties, bringing Jourdan one step closer to our goal of becoming the dominate phosphate exploration company in Quebec.”

The following maps show the location of Jourdan’s Cache Phosphate Property relative to its other phosphate projects in Quebec, as well as major population centers:

Historical work on the Cache Property by previous property holders includes mechanical stripping in which 3 trenches were cut totaling approximately 50 metres of sampling (see Map 3). Trench 1 includes two sample intervals 11 metres grading 4.14% P2O5 and 6.43% TiO2 and 19 metres grading 3.41% P2O5 and 4.53% TiO2 (see Map 4). These two intervals are separated by 9 metres which was not sampled due to overburden (see Table 2).

Previous work also includes grab samples shown in Table 1 below with values of up to 8.36% P2O5 and 9.96% TiO2 and to 6.23% P2O5 and 9.51% TiO2.

Certain statements contained in this news release, including any information as to our strategy, projects, plans or future financial or operating performance and other statements that express management’s expectations or estimates of future performance, may constitute forward-looking information (collectively “forward-looking information”) within the meaning of Canadian securities laws. Forward-looking information may be identified by terminology such as “may”, “will”, “could”, “should”, “expect”, “plan”, “anticipate”, “believe”, “intend”, “estimate”, “projects”, “predict”, “potential”, “continue” or other similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts and include, but are not limited to, resource estimates, capital and operating expenditures, economic conditions, availability of sufficient financing, receipt of approvals, satisfaction of closing conditions and any and all other timing, development, operational, financial, economic, legal, regulatory and/or political factors that may influence future events or conditions. Such forward-looking statements are based on a number of material factors and assumptions, including, but not limited to, access to capital markets and other sources of financing and associated cost of funds, final receipt of any required approvals, sufficient working capital for development and operations, access to adequate services and supplies, availability of markets for products, commodity prices, foreign currency exchange rates, interest rates, availability of a qualified work force, availability of manufacturing equipment, no material changes to the tax and regulatory regime, the ultimate ability to execute business plans on economically favourable terms and those material factors and assumptions disclosed in other public filings of Jourdan Resources.

While we consider these assumptions to be reasonable based on information currently available to us, they may prove to be incorrect. Actual results may vary from such forward-looking information for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to, risks and uncertainties disclosed in other public Jourdan Resources filings, changes in general economic, market and business conditions, competition for, among other things, capital and skilled personnel, and other unforeseen events or circumstances, that may cause the actual financial results, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from estimated future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.

Other than as required by law, Jourdan Resources does not intend, and undertakes no obligation, to update any forward looking information to reflect, among other things, new information or future events.

Although the Company believes many of its properties have promising potential, its properties are in the early stages of exploration. None have yet been shown to contain proven or probable mineral reserves. There can be no assurance that such reserves will be identified on any property, or that, if identified, any mineralization may be economically extracted.
