CMQ to Explore North Sleeper Properties


    CALGARY, April 21 /CNW/ - CMQ Resources Inc. (TSXV: NV) ("CMQ") is
pleased to announce it has entered into a Letter Agreement to explore the
North Sleeper gold exploration property.
    The North Sleeper property is located 2 miles north of the Sleeper
Deposit in Humboldt County, Nevada, within the western part of the Northern
Nevada Rift. The project consists of 50 lode mining claims covering 1.5 square
    The target at the North Sleeper property is a low sulfidation, bonanza
gold-silver vein target enveloped by bulk-tonnage, low-grade disseminated ore
covered by alluvial gravels.
    The Sleeper deposit has produced 1,685,500 ounces of gold and 2,334,400
ounces of silver from high-grade veins and lower grade stockwork and breccia
ores. Ninety percent of the ore mined from this deposit was hosted by the
Sleeper Rhyolite, a volcanic unit that is covered by alluvial gravels. At the
present time XCal Resources Ltd. is evaluating a renewed geological
interpretation. Published geological maps and publicly available data strongly
suggests that the favorable mine stratigraphy and structure trends
northeastward from the Sleeper pit onto the North Sleeper property.
Specifically, the gold-silver veins of the original Sleeper mine, a prominent
magnetic low, and Landsat TM lineaments all trend towards the North Sleeper,
which is covered by alluvial gravels along the western range front. A magnetic
anomaly and two resistivity anomalies are known to occur on the North Sleeper
    CMQ has signed a Letter Agreement with C3 Resources Inc. ("C3") (the "C3
Agreement"), whereby CMQ may earn up to a 55% joint venture interest in
certain mining claims controlled by C3, located in Humboldt County, Nevada
(the "North Sleeper Claims"), by spending a total of USD$3,000,000 on certain
exploration expenditures over a six-year period. CMQ is committed to expend a
minimum of USD$50,000 in the first year. Any additional amounts are at the
election of CMQ but no interest in the claims is earned until the entire
USD$3,000,000 is expended. CMQ may also elect, in due course, to earn an
additional 10% interest in the South Sleeper Claims by funding the cost of a
feasibility study in respect thereof. The operator, following completion of a
feasibility study, may elect to earn an additional 5% by arranging financing
at its expense for the project through to commercial production.
Alternatively, CMQ and C3 may form a Joint Venture to further explore the
project. The terms of the C3 Agreement shall be set forth in a formal
exploration agreement that is to be executed within 60 days.
    CMQ currently has 6,534,670 Common Shares issued and outstanding. CMQ's
