Hole LTP-150 was an inclined in-fill hole drilled at the Romero deposit. Holes LTP-151 through to LTP-157 were peripheral holes drilled around the main gold and copper trend at Romero. These holes encountered sulphide mineralization, with lower grade gold and copper than the core of the Romero, which remains open in several directions.

A plan map showing the hole locations at Romero for all eight holes can be found at: www.goldquestcorp.com/images/nr/HOLE_LOCATIONS_DEC_2013.JPG

A complete set of assay results for all Romero drill holes can be found at:

www.goldquestcorp.com/images/nr/all_assay_dec_2013.pdf

As part of the Company's Quality Assurance and Quality Control procedures (QA/QC), most of the high grade intervals are re-assayed and the Company is awaiting these check samples. In addition, systematic re-assaying of intervals is in progress, to confirm compliance of blanks and duplicates checks. The Company also reviews results from Certified Standard Reference materials (CRSM or Standards), which are inserted at a rate of 5 per 100 samples. Within the results disclosed herein there were 3 samples which had results for copper outside of recommended tolerance limits. The Company has requested re-analysis of the samples in this batch and will report material differences in the results.

In GoldQuest's drill programs, composite intervals were chosen using a combination of geological criteria and mineralization, averaging around 2 metres core length. The drill core is cut in half with one half of the core sample shipped to ACME Labs by GoldQuest technicians. The remaining half of the core is kept at the company core shack for future assay verification, or any other further investigation. Assays within intervals below the 0.005 g/t detection limit for Au were given a zero value. All drill samples were prepared and screened by ACME Labs (Santo Domingo); metallic fire assay and multi-element ICP-MS were assayed by ACME Analytical Laboratories (Chile). Gold values are determined by standard fire assay with an AA finish, or, if over 10.0 g/t Au, were re-assayed and completed with a gravimetric finish. QA/QC included the insertion and continual monitoring of numerous standards, blanks and duplicates into the sample stream, at random intervals within each batch. The comprehensive GoldQuest Quality Assurance and Quality Control protocols can be viewed on GoldQuest's Website at: http://goldquestcorp.com/index.php/corporate/corporate-governance.

The assay results and QA/QC data in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Jeremy Niemi, P.Geo., the Director, Technical Services of GoldQuest and a Qualified Person for the technical information in this press release under NI 43-101 standards.
