LAVAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 29, 2009) - A correction from source is being issued with respect to the release sent out today at 3:57 PM. In the second paragraph, it should read "Each unit consists of 4 000 flow-through shares priced at $0.20 each, and 1,333 common shares (which do not qualify as flow-through shares) priced at $0.15 each" instead of "Each unit consists of 5,334 flow-through shares priced at $0.15 each, and 1,000 common shares (which do not qualify as flow-through shares) priced at $0.20 each". The corrected version follows.

NQ Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NQE) is pleased to announce that it has negotiated non-brokered private placements for a total of $1,575,000, as follows:
