QGX Ltd.: Shuteen Update

WATERDOWN, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 25, 2005) - QGX LTD. (TSX:QGX) reports that the initial drill program conducted on the Shuteen copper-gold prospect in south-central Mongolia did not encounter any significant mineralization. Eight holes were drilled in the Black Hills prospect and one hole was drilled in the Southwest Breccias prospect (see press releases dated October 26, 2004 and November 23, 2004).

David Anderson, CEO of QGX Ltd., commented as follows:

"While we are disappointed in the results from our initial drill program at Shuteen, we believe that the property continues to hold potential for significant porphyry copper-gold and epithermal gold mineralization. There are still many prospective targets that remain untested on this large 220 sq. km license. We are currently assessing a number of alternatives to continue exploring the property. In the meantime, our primary focus is on our more advanced projects at Baruun Naran (coal), Golden Hills (gold/copper) and Undur Tsaagan (tungsten/molybdenum)."
