    Claude Enters Into Royalty Transaction with Orion Mine Finance

    March 20, 2014 - Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada: Claude Resources Inc. (“Claude” and or the “Company”) (TSX: CRJ; OTCQB: CLGRF) today announced that it has completed a Net Smelter Return (“NSR”) royalty agreement with Orion Mine Finance Fund (“Orion”) on the Seabee Gold Operation for proceeds of U.S. $12 million for a three (3) percent NSR.

    Neil McMillan, President and CEO stated, “Orion’s partnership comes at a pivotal time for Claude and specifically for the Seabee Gold Operation as we move the Santoy Gap into our production profile. Orion’s confidence in our long-term plan demonstrates the opportunities that exist at the Seabee Gold Operation to increase production, margins and, in turn, shareholder value. The combination of the royalty proceeds and the sale of the Madsen Gold Project provide the Company with the financial strength to execute on our long-term plan.”

    Transaction Summary

    Under the terms of the NSR, Claude will receive U.S. $12 million for a three (3) percent NSR on production from the Seabee Gold Operation. The NSR provides Claude with the option to repurchase half or 1.5 percent of the 3 percent NSR for U.S. $12 million, expiring on December 31, 2016. The NSR payments will be paid quarterly in cash or in physical gold at the average price of gold in each calendar month.

    The use of proceeds from the transaction will be used for further development at the Seabee Gold Operation and for general working capital purposes.

    Medalist Capital Ltd has acted as advisor to Claude with respect to the NSR purchase.
