CMQ begins core drilling on Red Canyon project

CALGARY, Oct. 20 /CNW/ - CMQ Resources Inc. (TSXV: NV) ("CMQ") is pleased to announce that it has commenced diamond core drilling at Red Canyon, a sediment-hosted gold project in Eureka County, Nevada. A 1,300 ft (~400 m) drilling program is anticipated in three core holes at the Ice Prospect ("Ice").

Two core holes at Ice will provide high quality samples for: verification of historic drill assay results near KR-001, a reverse-circulation drill hole with 95 ft of 0.117 oz Au/t from 20 to 115 ft (29.0m of 4.012 g Au/t from 6.1 to 35.1 m); and direct observation of alteration, structure and lithologic patterns in the gold bearing host rocks. All previous drilling has been reverse circulation and it is anticipated that core information will guide the understanding of gold mineralization controls and enhance the exploration model.

One vertical core hole will be drilled 1,445 ft (440m) east of KR-001 to test the McColley Canyon Formation below surface alteration and a gold / arsenic soil anomaly.

The Red Canyon project includes 237 unpatented lode mining claims (7.7 square miles / 19.8 square kilometers) on the Battle Mountain-Eureka Trend and adjoins U.S. Gold's Tonkin Springs property to the west. The project covers a window that exposes oxidized and silicified lower-plate carbonate rocks over a three square mile area (7.8 sq. km.). Miranda Gold Corp. is CMQ's joint venture partner on the Red Canyon project.

CMQ currently has 6,534,670 Common Shares issued and outstanding. CMQ's website is located at
