Goldcorp drills four holes on Conquest's Alexander Property at Red Lake

    300 METRES

    TORONTO, May 25 /CNW/ - Conquest Resources Limited (TSX-V: "CQR") is
pleased to announce that Goldcorp Inc. ("Goldcorp") has recently completed
four diamond drill holes on to Conquest's Alexander Property at Red Lake,
    The holes were drilled by Goldcorp from its adjacent Red Lake Mine
Property as part of a wider program to delineate mineralization within the
upper part of the Red Lake Mine.
    The four inclined holes, which were collared from surface within
approximately 1,000 metres of the Red Lake Mine No. 1 Shaft headframe, were
drilled in a north-easterly direction into the western part of Conquest's
property to downhole depths between 690 to 836 metres.
    Hole DS641 of Goldcorp's drilling programme located a significant gold
intersection of 4.97 grams per tonne gold over 1.82 metres, including 14.25
g/t over 0.61m, at a down hole depth of 473 metres and an estimated vertical
depth of approximately 300 metres. The preliminary drilling results were
provided to Conquest by Goldcorp. The gold assay results were determined by
SGS and Accurassay Laboratories in Red Lake and Thunder Bay, Ontario.
    Conquest's Alexander Gold Project is located in Balmer Township in the
heart of the Red Lake Gold Camp. It lies immediately adjacent to Goldcorp's
high grade Red Lake Mine, within the east-southeast trending "Mine Trend"
deformation zone, and is almost completely surrounded by Goldcorp's claim
    Commenting on the drilling results, Conquest's President & CEO, Mr.
Terence McKillen, stated: "The intersection of good grade gold at this depth
on Conquest's property is extremely encouraging. The gold mineralization
previously encountered by Conquest in the west-central part of the Alexander
Property was in trenching and shallow drilling. Goldcorp's four drill holes
extend to approximate vertical depths of 450 - 570 metres representing the
deepest drilled holes on the Alexander Property to date. The intersection in
hole DS641 confirms gold potential exists at depth on Conquest's property."
    Conquest's Alexander Property at Red Lake is situated 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, approximately
1,000 metres east of the No. 1 Shaft headframe and within 400 metres of the
Far East Zone at the Red Lake Mine. Many of the regional structures that have
associated gold mineralization in the area of Goldcorp's two producing mines
cross on to the Alexander Property.
    Conquest has developed a phased exploration strategy for its Alexander
Project to investigate depth extensions from known surface and near surface
gold mineralization and plans to initiate the first phase of drilling later
this summer.
