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 third and fourth diamond drill holes, KN 05-05 and KN 06-05, on the Djambaye 2 gold zone in the Kenieba concession in western Mali, West Africa. Below are the sample results:

Drill Hole          Interval     Width         Gold
                    (metres)    (metres) (grams per tonne)
KN 05-05         57.55 - 68.10   10.55         1.90
Including        57.55 - 58.55    1.00         5.85
And              66.10 - 67.10    1.00         4.36
KN 06-05         30.91 - 32.00    1.10         4.09
KN 06-05         36.10 - 37.00    0.90         2.98
KN 06-05         45.25 - 49.70    4.45         9.82
Including        45.25 - 46.30    1.05        18.02
And              47.30 - 48.30    1.00        19.35

KN 05-05 was spotted 25 m east of KN 03-05 and drilled at -50º to the west, under KN 03-05. The objective of this drill hole was to confirm the dip of the zone which is 74º to the east and to test for the continuity of gold mineralization. KN 03-05 intersected 2.60 m of 2.53 g/t gold at a depth of 22.3 m whereas KN 05-05 intersected 10.55 m of 1.90 g/t gold at a depth of 43.5 m. This shows that the zone is widening with depth here.

KN 06-05 was located 145 m north of the first three holes and was drilled at an angle of -50º to the northwest (315º). The next drill hole, DDH KN 07-05, is located 27 m southeast of KN 07-05 and drilled at -50 under it. In KN 06-05, little core was recovered between 38.55 and 42.25 m.

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.
