Conquest Resources Limited - Press Release



    - DRILLING COMMENCES AT ALEXANDER PROPERTY, RED LAKE, ONTARIO

    TORONTO, Sept. 2 /CNW/ - Conquest Resources Limited (TSX-V: "CQR") is
pleased to announce the commencement of drilling at its Alexander Gold Project
in Red Lake, Ontario by Boart Longyear Canada. Phase one of a two-phase
programme will comprise 4,000 metres of NQ drilling in the west and central
portions of the property is expected to be completed by late October. Sampling
and assaying of split core is expected to take five to six weeks after
completion of the last drill hole with full reporting anticipated prior to the
end of the year.
    Conquest's Phase One drill programme is designed to test prospective
stratigraphic and structural horizons at depth identified in previous
drilling, surface trenching, geochemical soil surveys, airborne geophysical
surveys, and recent surface drilling conducted by Goldcorp Inc. on to the
property. Prospective massive sulphide and quartz-carbonate vein associated
gold mineralization targets will be tested to vertical depths of approximately
500 metres within volcanic and sedimentary lithologies, along a strike length
of about 1,800 metres extending from the boundary with Goldcorp's Red Lake
mine property towards the central portion of the Alexander property. Gold
mineralization potential in this area extending eastward from the adjacent
mine infrastructure is open at depth.

    ABOUT THE ALEXANDER PROPERTY

    The Alexander Gold Project in Balmer Township is 100% owned by Conquest
and is situated within the prolific Red Lake Gold Camp "Mine Trend". The
property lies immediately 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 is located approximately 1,000 metres east of the
Red Lake Complex headframe and within 400 metres of the Far East gold zone at
the Red Lake gold mine. Many of the regional structures that have associated
gold mineralization in the area of Goldcorp's two producing mines continue
through the Alexander Property. Recent drilling by Goldcorp intersected 14.26
grams of gold over 0.61 metres on the Alexander property at a vertical depth
of 300 metres.
