Great Quest Reports Results of Geological Mapping and Pitting on the Kenieba Concession

By Great Quest | 

VANCOUVER, BC - Willis W. Osborne, President of Great Quest Metals Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX Venture Exchange: GQ), is very pleased to announce the results of the recent geological mapping, pitting and sampling along the Djambaye 2 zone in the Kenieba concession, western Mali, West Africa.

The initial phase of the program consisted of digging 24 pits along a 392 metre stretch of the north-south zone. Twenty-one of the pits were dug to a depth of 10 to 12 metres and sampled at the bottom. Pits 18, 23, and 24 were dug to a depth of 2 to 3 m.

In the table below the number under "metres" represents the distance south of Pit 6. "QV" means quartz vein.

Consistent spacing of the pits was impossible because of the amount of pits previously dug by the orpailleurs or local miners. Additional sampling was completed from pit material around old pits dug by the orpailleurs along the zone north and south of the above Company pits. Eight samples of the reject material from four large pits, 48 to 171 m north of P - 6 averaged 3.91 g/t gold. A ninth sample assayed 91.93 g/t gold. Eleven samples taken from rejects around pits from 392 to 1256 m south of P - 6, averaged 2.15 g/t gold.

The geological setting of the zone consists of a greater than 20 metre wide rhyodacite dike which occurs within a north-south, silicified shear zone. There is a 200 m wide east-west zone cross-cutting the dike here with east-west quartz veins up to 4 m wide. The length of these veins is limited. The width of the northsouth mineralized zone is as yet undetermined. P -- 7, 11 metres east of P -- 9, may give an initial indication of the minimum width of the zone. Mapping and sampling is planned for June followed by drilling.

This program was supervised by Mamadou Keita, M.Sc. Geo. and Willis W. Osborne, M.Sc. Geo. Marvin Mitchell P.Eng., is the Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed the data. ABILAB Afrique de l' Ouest SARL located in Bamako, Mali, conducted the assays.
