Great Quest Announces Samples up to 22.52 g/t Gold on Kourufin Veins

Author: Great Quest | | Categories: 2005

VANCOUVER, BC - Willis W. Osborne, President of Great Quest Metals Ltd. (TSX Venture Exchange: GQ), is pleased to announce the results of a sampling program on the Kourufin quartz vein located west of the Djambaye 2 gold zone in the Company's Kenieba concession in western Mali, West Africa. The Kenieba concession is south of and adjacent to the Tabakoto-Segala concessions held by Nevsun Resources. The Tabakoto gold deposit is scheduled for the start of production next month.

The 2-metre-wide vein, striking 340º, has been exposed in a 45-m-long trench and has been traced a further 30 m through shallow pits. Assays from channel samples, starting from the southeast and progressing to the northwest, are as follows:

Sample   Width  Distance from   Grams per
No.             first Sample    tonne gold
  01      1m         0            5.28
  02      2m        15           20.67
  03      2m        32           22.52
  04      2m        60            1.96

Sample 01 was taken from the side of a pit; the rest were taken from the vein exposed at the bottom of a large trench. A fifth sample (05) from a 5.5-m-deep pit, 9 m southwest of the zone and opposite a point 22 m northwest of Sample 01, was taken over a length of 1 m along the side of the pit near the bottom. This sample assayed 6.39 g/t gold. Mapping in the area suggests the occurrence of a vein system rather than one or two discrete quartz veins in the Kourufin area.

Great Quest is currently reviewing all data from the Kenieba concession, including fill-in mapping in preparation for a drill program in early 2006. The main focus of that drill program will be to continue to test the Djambaye 2 gold zone to depth and along strike. As well, the Company is planning to test some of the 4 other gold zones on this concession.
