Northquest Ltd. Announces Plans For An Accelerated And Expanded Drilling Program At The Pistol Bay Gold Project, Nunavut, Canada

TORONTO, January 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Northquest Ltd. (TSX.V-NQ) (FWB-N3Q) ("Northquest" or "the Company") is pleased to provide an update on the planned accelerated and expanded drilling program at the Pistol Bay Gold Project, Nunavut, Canada. The Pistol Bay Gold Project consists of 675 square kilometres of mineral rights covering a 50 kilometre strike length of the Pistol Bay Corridor, a west-trending lineament which contains numerous gold occurrences. Since field operations commenced in April 2011, the Company has completed two airborne geophysical surveys and 7,097 metres of diamond drilling in 39 drill holes and has obtained economically interesting drilling intersections at three targets over a 20 kilometre long segment of the Pistol Bay Corridor.

Accelerated and Expanded Exploration Program Planned for the Pistol Bay Project

Northquest is committed to increasing the rate of drilling and improving the continuity of news flow from the Pistol Bay Project, which has had two relatively short field seasons in 2011 and 2012. Accordingly, in April 2013, the Company intends to complete the construction of an all weather camp facility on the site of the current summer camp, with the goal of commencing drilling operations on May 1, 2013. The objective is to have drilling operations at the Project for a minimum of 8 months per year which should be feasible given the excellent infrastructure of the Project which includes an all season gravel road through the centre of the property, Arctic Ocean coastline within the property boundary, and an air strip, with daily flights from Winnipeg, one kilometre from the property boundary.

At the Vickers Target, fourteen drill holes (3,600 metres) have intersected the Vickers Main Zone, which is an epizonal, silica-gold zone in the brecciated margin and footwall of a dioritic intrusion. The maximum limits of the mineralized zone have not been determined, however, drill holes by Northquest have intersected the zone over a strike length of 200 metres, and to a depth of 300 metres, and the zone varies in width from 50 to 160 metres. The best drilling intersection obtained to date is 156.48 metres grading 8.23 grams gold per tonne in drill hole PB-12-22. Northquest intends to complete an IP/resistivity survey of the Vickers Target and additional drilling in 2013. The drilling will consist of infill drilling on certain drilling sections, exploratory drilling to determine the limits of the mineralized zone (which is open in all directions), and exploratory drilling to determine the nature, size, and grade of untested, gold-bearing, surface outcrops at the V2 Zone, 200 metres south of the Vickers Main Zone, as well as any other targets that are defined in the IP/resistivity survey.
