Animas Resources Inc. signs letter of intent to purchase the San Enrique property



    VANCOUVER, Nov. 26 /CNW/ - MetalQuest Minerals Inc. ("MetalQuest" or the
"Company") announces Minera Teck Cominco S.A. de C.V. has dropped its option
to earn into the San Enrique property located in Sonora, Mexico. Animas
Resources Inc. ("Animas") has provided a letter of intent to exercise its
option and purchase the property subject to completing the appropriate due
diligence.
    Minimal exploratory work was undertaken at San Enrique this year. As
such, the Company is pleased to monetize the asset and introduce Animas'
experienced exploration team to the project. Under the terms of the agreement,
Animas will issue US $450,000 in cash and or stock on closing for a 100%
interest in the property.
    Over the past two years, MetalQuest has been divesting itself of its
Mexican and non core Canadian assets after mixed exploration results on the
properties, having sold the Santa Gertrudis property and allowing the Tantalus
Mountain, British Columbia claims to lapse. Meanwhile, the Company has entered
negotiations to add a Peruvian copper-gold porphyry prospect to the portfolio.
Details will be limited until negotiations are complete; however, the property
does boast appealing logistics, climate, grade and tonnage potential. The
Company is hoping for a successful conclusion to negotiations over the next
few weeks.
