2013 Production Results

The Aurbel Mill continued to generate positive and consistent results in 2013 with an overall annual average recovery rate of 93.2% and was achieved with a significant increase in the mill throughput quarter over quarter. Over the course of 2013, the mill processed a total of 173,727 tonnes of ore at an average grade of 4.27 g/t to produce 22,225 ounces of gold. The production figures do not include an additional 10,000 tonnes of ore that were custom milled under the milling agreement with Armistice Resources (now renamed Kerr Mines Inc.) in the third quarter.

Fourth Quarter Production Results

In the fourth quarter of 2013, mill throughput was 77% higher than in the first quarter of the same year, processing 59,791 tonnes of ore at an average grade of 4.03 g/t Au with recoveries of 93.7% to produce 7,260 ounces of gold. The mill throughput increase was a result of producing from larger zones, which were developed by the operating team over the last year, at slightly lower than average grades.

Operational Outlook

QMX Gold continues to mine out the Lac Herbin mine above the 42 Level as a suspension of development and exploration activities remains in place. The Company plans to to process ore at the Aurbel Mill for Kerr Mines Inc. under the custom milling agreement signed in June 2013. QMX Gold intends to process at least an additional 20,000 tonnes of ore under the agreement. The Company continues to search for additional feed to maintain operation at its Aurbel mill.

Also, the Company is continuing to evaluate several projects within a 150 kilometer radius from Aurbel mill which could be put in production in the short to medium term.

The sale of QMX Gold's Snow Lake property to Northern Sun Mining Corp. remains pending and is expected to close on or before March 31, 2014.

Brett New, President and CEO of QMX Gold, commented "I am pleased to report that our year-end results are in line with 2013 budgeted figures as we produced between 20,500 and 23,500 ounces of gold at the Aurbel Mill. The team at Lac Herbin and the Aurbel Mill have done an excellent job at keeping operations running smoothly and efficiently, despite a number of cost-reduction measures that were necessary over the course of 2013. This can be seen as our mill recovery rates have remained very consistent throughout 2013. The Company plans to continue to mine out the mineralized lenses above the 42 Level in 2014 and expects production to be 16,500 to 19,000 ounces of gold in 2014."
