Great Quest's Drill Program Continues to Extend Djambaye 2 Gold Zone

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 fifth and sixth diamond drill holes, KN 07-05 and KN 08-05, on the Djambaye 2 gold zone in the Kenieba concession in western Mali, West Africa. The Company now can claim significant results in 6 of 6 holes drilled on the zone. Below are the sample results:

Drill Hole          Interval     Width         Gold
                    (metres)    (metres) (grams per tonne)
KN 07-05        53.40 - 61.85     8.45         3.31
Including       59.00 - 60.20     1.20        16.62
KN 07-05        65.20 - 69.00     3.80         3.90
KN 07-05        94.30 - 95.80     1.50         6.23
KN 08-05        60.80 - 61.60     0.80         2.13
KN 08-05        68.70 - 73.75     5.05         7.05
Including       70.55 - 72.30     1.75        17.57
KN 08-05        87.40 - 91.50     4.10         4.58

KN 07-05 was spotted 25 m southeast of KN 06-05 and drilled at -50º to the northwest, under KN 06-05. The objective of this drill hole was to test for the continuity of gold mineralization with depth. KN 06-05 intersected 1.10 m of 4.09 g/t gold and 0.90 m of 2.98 g/t gold, whereas KN 07-05 intersected 8.45 m of 3.31 g/t gold, all associated with rhyodacite dykes. The intersections in each hole, associated with a diorite dyke, include 4.45 m of 9.86 g/t gold in KN 06-05 and 3.80 m of 3.90 g/t gold in KN 07-05. KN 07-05 intersected an unexpected 1.5 m of 6.23 g/t gold from 94.30 to 95.80 m in sediments. Future drilling will test this zone.

KN 08-05 was located 190 m north of KN 07-05 and was drilled at an angle of -50º to the northwest (315º). The Company has now drilled 6 holes over a length of 350 m along the north-south Djambaye 2 gold zone. The deepest intersection on one of the main zones is 65 m. The Djambaye 2 gold zone remains open in both directions and to depth. The next drill hole, KN 09-05, is located 75 m north of KN 06-05 and drilled at -50 to the northwest.

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.
