HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA – October 21, 2013 Oceanus Resources Corporation (TSXV:OCN) ("Oceanus" or the "Company") recently held its annual meeting of shareholders where the results of the 2013 exploration program for the La Lajita Gold Property located in the Durango State, Mexico were presented. The presentation highlighted the drilling results which were press released on September 24th, 2013 and included a high-grade intersection of 7.1 g/t Au and 48.8 g/t Ag (8.1 g/t AuEq50) over an interval of 20 meters at the Santo Nino prospect.

The drilling program demonstrated the presence of high-grade mineralization in terms of visible gold and the presence of hematite breccia and green quartz. Such mineralization is typical of high-grade clavos-type structures in the Sierra Madre of Mexico. Planning for the 2014 exploration and diamond drilling programs is underway. Priority drilling targets include the high-grade Santa Nino clavos and Dos Hermanos prospect.
