GoldQuest Completes Airborne ZTEM Geophysical Survey for Tireo Project

GoldQuest Mining Corp. ("GoldQuest" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has completed an airborne ZTEM geophysical survey covering its 100% owned Tireo Project, and has initiated its 2014 exploration program. Geotech Limited of Canada has flown 3,285 kilometers of flight lines, with investigation depths reaching 1.6 kilometers, allowing the Company to quickly and effectively evaluate the geological and mineral potential of the Tireo Project.

GoldQuest Mining Corp. 2014 ZTEM Survey - Resistivity Signature

Results of the ZTEM Survey show:

  • A strong correlation between the Romero and Romero South mineralization
  • The Romero resistivity trend extends northwards over 1 kilometer past existing drilling and 0.5 kilometers south of Romero South
  • Additional new trends have been identified from the survey and field crews have been mobilized for ground follow up carrying out ground geophysics, along with geological and alteration mapping
  • An Induced Polarization ("IP") program has been commenced over ZTEM targets

"The ZTEM survey has revealed a strong correlation between the new survey data and mineralization at Romero and Romero South," commented Julio Espaillat, GoldQuest's CEO, "The survey has provided us with key insights into the conductivity, magnetism, alteration and structure of the Tireo belt, with numerous targets showing similar properties to that of Romero. We are identifying exploration targets, and plan to announce the commencement of drilling shortly, to compliment the Romero Project's Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) expected in the coming weeks."

2014 Exploration Update:
Following the ZTEM survey, the Company is evaluating and ranking its regional exploration targets. The 2014 field exploration program has commenced and a focused ground IP program is underway. Insight Geophysics of Oakville, Ontario, Canada is on site completing the ground IP program. The IP program is designed to identify chargeable zones along the regional trends identified by the ZTEM survey and mapping. The starting point for the IP program was along trend and directly north of Romero. The Company anticipates that IP surveying will continue for several months. Two drill rigs are stationed at the Company's field camp next to Romero. The Company will initially mobilize one drill rig and expects to commence drilling by the end of April.

At December 31, 2013, the Company had approximately $11 million in treasury and is funded to complete the 2014 work programs and beyond.
