  • Conquest INTERSECTs Gold IN FIRST FOUR HOLES on Alexander Gold Property in Red Lake


TORONTO, ONTARIO ? November 23, 2009 - Conquest Resources Limited (TSX-V: "CQR") is pleased to provide interim results from ongoing exploration at its 100% owned Alexander gold project located in the prolific "Mine Trend" structure of the Red Lake gold camp in northwestern Ontario.

Conquest has completed its 2009 surface drill programme which consisted of six drill holes totaling 4,100 metres of NQ drilling conducted by Boart Longyear Canada. The programme was designed to target prospective stratigraphic and structural horizons to depths previously untested in the western and central portions of the Alexander property and to further investigate the area of recent drilling conducted by Goldcorp Inc. on to the property (previously reported, May 25, 2009).


Assay results received to-date for the first four holes confirm intersections of gold mineralization over narrow widths from sampling ranging in depth between 65 and 270 metres vertically. Results are summarized as follows:

                                        Intersection  Dip of hole
    Hole          From (m)      To (m)     Width (m)   (degrees)   Gold (g/t)
    CR-09-033      129.07       129.32       0.25         -50        8.32
    CR-09-034      135.03       139.00       3.97         -50        1.39
                         (includes)          1.50         -50        3.10
    CR-09-034      205.41       208.88       3.47         -50        1.80
                         (includes)          0.39         -50        9.64
    CR-09-035       89.35        89.85       0.50         -50        1.46
    CR-09-036      233.00       233.30       0.30         -50        1.08
    CR-09-037        -            -           -            -       Pending
    CR-09-038        -            -           -            -       Pending
    True width will be determined following receipt of complete survey data
    and will be provided in a follow up release.

The gold was identified by sampling in Balmer volcanic and Huston sedimentary rocks similar to those encountered in earlier shallow drilling completed by Conquest in 2003 and 2004.

Commenting on the progress of the 2009 drilling program Mr. Terence McKillen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Conquest Resources, stated, "The results of our 2009 programme confirm the depth continuity of gold bearing structures encountered in previous shallow drilling and provide the necessary encouragement to embark on a major programme of deep drilling to evaluate the potential of this strategically located Red Lake property."


Holes CR-09-037 and CR-09-038 were drilled to depths of 700 and 750 metres vertically, and represent the deepest holes drilled to date at Alexander.

Hole CR-09-037 intersected 83 metres of strongly sheared and silica altered Bruce Channel sediments at approximately 870 metres down-hole depth. Hole CR-09-038 intersected the same altered and sheared sediments at a down-hole depth of 988 metres. These two holes provide a newly established strike length of over 225 meters of prospective horizon within the important Bruce Channel sediments. Assays are pending for these final two holes.

The recently completed drilling programme has provided important geological data on previously inferred structural and lithological contacts at depths ranging from 400 to 750 metres vertically and confirms the presence of gold-bearing structures within the Balmer and Huston formations on Conquest's Alexander Property.

The current drilling has effectively doubled the depth profile established in previous drill programmes on the Alexander property and has provided the first geological insight at deeper levels in the stratigraphy.

The information into the deeper subsurface geology gained during the Phase-I drilling has provided valuable data for the development of a major, deep drilling programme to systematically explore the Balmer Assemblage rocks. Subject to financing, the next phase of drilling is planned to commence early in 2010, and will test to vertical depths between 1,300 and 2,000 metres.


Conquest's Alexander gold project is located in Balmer Township in the heart of the Red Lake Gold Camp. It is situated within the "Mine Trend" structural corridor adjacent to Goldcorp's Red Lake and Campbell gold mines, which contain historic production and current resources in excess of 25 million ounces of gold, and approximately 1,000 metres east of the Red Lake No. 1 Shaft headframe and within 400 metres of the Far East gold zone at the Red Lake Mine.
