Canadian Quantum Energy Corporation: Update on Gentilly #1

LONDON, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 18, 2006) - Douglas J. Brett, President of Canadian Quantum Energy Corporation (NEX BOARD:CQM.H) (the "Company") reports that the Gentilly #1 drilling operation has reached a final depth of 2529 m and has been logged and cased. Log analysis and mud logging shows while drilling suggest two potential horizons worthwhile for testing. It is expected that completion operations will commence early in the new year.

The Gentilly #1 is the first test drilled on the Company's acreage in the St Lawrence Lowlands, Quebec through a farm out arrangement with Talisman Energy Inc.

The Company is a publicly traded junior oil and gas exploration and development company listed on the NEX Board of the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol CQM.
