Q-Gold Closes Over Subscribed Private Placement

FORT FRANCES, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 18, 2008) - Q-Gold Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:QAU) (FRANKFURT:QX9) (http://www.qgoldresources.com) is pleased to announce that it has closed the final tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") for gross proceeds of $151,000. When added to the gross proceeds received from the closing of the previous tranches of the private placement, announced in press releases dated July 21, 2008 and August 12, 2008, the Corporation has now received aggregate gross proceeds of $619,060 in connection with this private placement.

The Corporation issued 937,500 "flow-through" units at a price of $0.08 per unit (the "FT Units") and 1,266,666 "non-flow-through" units at a price of $0.06 per unit (the "NFT Units"). Each FT Unit consists of one flow-through common share of the Corporation (a "Flow-Through Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (a "FT Warrant"). Each full FT Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Corporation (a "Common Share") at a price of $0.12 for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance. Each NFT Unit consists of one Common Share of the Corporation and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each full NFT Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional Common Share of the Corporation at a price of $0.10 for a period of 24 months.

Three insiders of the Corporation subscribed for 200,000 NFT Units and 100,000 FT Units.

Q-Gold paid a cash finder's fee of $3,680 and granted 70,750 finder's flow-through warrants (the "Finder's FT Warrant") and 52,667 finder's warrants (the "Finder's Warrant") in connection with the closing of the second tranche of the Offering. Each Finder's FT Warrant is exercisable at $0.08 per unit and is comprised of one Common Share and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant, which is exercisable under the same terms as the FT Warrant. Each Finder's Warrant is exercisable at $0.06 per unit and is comprised of one Common Share and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant, which is exercisable under the same terms as the Warrant.

The securities issued in connection with the closing of the second tranche of the Offering cannot be resold prior to December 14, 2008, as stipulated under applicable securities legislation and the TSX Venture Exchange policies.

Proceeds received by the Corporation from the FT Units will be used for the dewatering and rehabilitation of the 100%-owned historic Foley gold mine (see Press Release dated June 18, 2008) near Mine Centre, Ontario and for general exploration on the company's other mining claims and patents in Northwestern Ontario. Proceeds from the NFT Units will be used for exploration of Q-Gold's other mining claims and patents in Arizona and for general working capital purposes. All the funds raised from the issuance of the FT Units will be used for exploration activities in Canada and will constitute Canadian exploration expenses (as defined in the Income Tax Act), which will be renounced by Q-Gold.
