Great Quest's Drill Program Continues to Intersect Gold Mineralization

By Great Quest | 

VANCOUVER, BC - Willis W. Osborne, President of Great Quest Metals Ltd. (TSX Venture Exchange: GQ), is very pleased to announce the results of assays on samples from the seventh and eighth diamond drill holes, KN 09- 05 and KN 10-05, on the Djambaye 2 gold zone in the Kenieba concession in western Mali, West Africa. Holes KN 09-05 and KN 10-05 are located 80 m north of KN 06-05 and KN 07-05 respectively. The Company now can claim significant results in 8 of 8 holes drilled on the zone. Below are the sample results:

---------------------------------------------------------
Drill Hole          Interval     Width         Gold
                    (metres)    (metres) (grams per tonne)
---------------------------------------------------------
KN 09-05         49.75 - 53.45   3.70          2.19
KN 09-05         71.70 - 75.05   3.35          4.09
Including        74.70 - 75.05   0.35         21.30
KN 10-05         61.60 - 67.85   6.25          3.36
Including        61.60 - 63.10   1.50          7.55
KN 10-05         81.05 - 83.20   2.15          4.07
---------------------------------------------------------

With the exception of holes KN 03-05 and KN 05-05, all of the holes drilled so far intersect two high grade sections separated by a low grade section. If this is to be an open pit situation, the entire section should be considered:

---------------------------------------------------------------
Drill Hole   Interval     Width    Est. True      Gold
             (metres)    (metres)    Width   (grams per tonne)
---------------------------------------------------------------
KN 03-05  30.40 - 33.00    2.60       2.25        2.53
KN 05-05  57.77 - 68.10   10.33       8.95        1.90
KN 06-05  30.90 - 49.70   18.80      12.49        2.80
KN 07-05  53.40 - 69.00   15.60      10.37        2.80
KN 09-05  49.75 - 75.05   25.30      16.81        0.89
KN 10-05  61.60 - 83.20   21.60      14.35        1.45
KN 08-05  69.55 - 91.50   21.95      14.59        2.54
---------------------------------------------------------------

So far the Company has drill tested a 362 m length of the 2,342 m zone where gold mineralization has been traced. KN 03-05 and KN 05-05 are in the same cross-section. KN 06-05 and KN 07-05 intersect the zone 167 m north of the KN 03-05 intersection. KN 09-05 and KN 10-05 intersect the zone 80 m north of the intersection of KN 06-05, and KN 08-05 intersects the zone 115 m north of the KN 09-05 intersection.

The drill core samples were submitted to Abilab Afrique d'l'Ouest SARL (Abilab) which is located in Bamako, Mali. Most of the samples were assayed by means of fire assay with atomic absorption finish. Where visible gold was seen, the assays were completed through pulp metallic sieve analysis which is a more thorough method that helps to reduce the problems associated with the nugget effect of coarse gold. Marvin Mitchell, P.Eng, the Qualified Person pursuant to NI 43-101 on the project, has approved of the contents of this news release.
