VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - September 02, 2014) - Great Quest Fertilizer Ltd ("the Company") (TSX VENTURE: GQ) (FRANKFURT: GQM) is pleased to report the renewal of the phosphate exploration permits for its Tarkint Est and Tilemsi claim areas. The Tilemsi phosphate project is composed of Tarkint Est, Tilemsi and Aderfoul exploration permits. The 2 renewed permits are valid for 2 years and subject to be renewed once for 2 more years. The Aderfoul permit was received after Tarkint Est and Tilemsi, and as such has not come up for renewal. Malian Mining law allows for regular renewal of exploration concession permits, given satisfactory work has been undertaken during the preceding period.

Great Quest also announces the filing of its second quarter 2014 Financial Statements and MD&A on SEDAR, and the resignation of Mr. Abdoulaye Pona from the Board of its Mali subsidiary, Great Quest Mali S.A.

The Company thanks Mr. Pona for his valuable contribution to this project.
