Q-Gold Announces Flow-Through Private Placement

FORT FRANCES, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 12, 2007) - Q-Gold Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:QAU) (FRANKFURT:QX9) (http://www.qgoldresources.com) is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement to complete a non-brokered flow-through private placement of up to $500,000 (the "Offering").

The Offering will consist of the issuance of up to 3,125,000 units (the "Units") in the capital of Q-Gold at a price of $0.16 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share issued on a "flowthrough" basis (the "Flow-Through Share") and one-half of one transferable non-flow-through common share purchase warrant (the "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional non-flow-through common share at an exercise price of $0.25 for a period of 24 months from issuance.

Mineralfields Group ("MineralFields"), a Toronto-based mining fund, has agreed to subscribe for up to $325,000 of the Offering. This transaction is the third financing that Q-Gold is completing with MineralFields, having already completed two "flow-through" private placements at a price of $0.18 and $0.25 per Unit, respectively, for aggregate proceeds, including this financing, totaling $2,000,000 since December 2006.

Pursuant to the Offering, the Corporation has agreed to pay Limited Market Dealer Inc. ("LMDI"), a cash finder's fee equivalent to 5% of the gross proceeds of the Offering and finder's fee warrants ("Finder's Warrants") equal to 10% of the number of Units subscribed for under the Offering. Each Finder's Warrant entitles LMDI to acquire one Unit at an exercise price of $0.16 for a period of 24 months from issuance. The Units issuable upon exercise of the Finder's Warrants will have the same terms as the Units under the Offering. The Corporation has also agreed to pay to LMDI a cash due diligence fee of 3% of the gross proceeds of the Offering.

All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a four month restriction from resale as stipulated under applicable securities legislation and the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). It is contemplated that the Flow-Through Shares will entitle the holders to a 100% CEE tax deduction as set forth under the Income Tax Act (Canada).

Closing of the Offering is subject to all regulatory approvals, including those from the Exchange.

Q-Gold will use a portion of the proceeds to fund exploration and drilling on its almost 8,000 acres of mining claims and options on patented lands near Rainy River, Ontario.

Proceeds from the Offering will be also used by Q-Gold for the dewatering, rehabilitation and reentry of the North Shaft of the past producing (1898-1900) Foley Gold Mine to conduct underground exploration.

The Foley Mine is one of five historic gold mines owned or optioned by Q-Gold in the historic Gold Camp of Mine Centre, Ontario. Two of these mines, the Foley and the Golden Star, recorded gold production in the late 1890's.
