All of the above holes, in Phase 2 of the drill program, were drilled south of the southern limit of the 2005 drilling. Phase 2 consists of drilling 14 holes in 6 cross-sections over 4 lengths of 600 m on the Djambaye 2. Hole KN 24-06 is 125 m south of KN 23-06 and drilled to the northwest at -50 degrees; Hole KN 25-06 is 100 m south of KN 24-06 and drilled at -50 degrees to the west, and KN 26-06 is 95 m south of KN 25-06 and drilled to the west at -50 degrees. KN 27-06 was spotted 40 m east of KN 26-06 and drilled under it at -50 degrees. KN 28-06 is 145 m south of KN 26-06 and drilled at -50 degrees to the northwest. KN 29-06 was located 40 m southeast of KN 23-06 and drilled at -50 degrees under it.

Drilling continues. Great Quest plans to commence a mineral reserve study on the Djambaye 2 after the drill program. The Company has intersected the Djambaye 2 gold zone in 32 of 34 holes drilled in 2005, and so far in 2006, over a length of approximately 1,100 metres.

The drill core samples were submitted to Abilab Afrique d'l'Ouest SARL (Abilab) which is located in Bamako, Mali. Most of the samples were assayed by means of fire assay with atomic absorption finish. Where visible gold was seen, the assays were completed through pulp metallic sieve analysis which is a more thorough method that helps to reduce the problems associated with the nugget effect of coarse gold.
