QMC Quantum Minerals and Cassius Ventures Report on Drilling, Carrot River Project, Manitoba

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 30, 2011) - QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (TSX VENTURE:QMC) and Cassius Ventures Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CZ) are pleased to announce the completion of five drill holes on their Carrot River project - one (hole no. P6) on the Bullet gold target, three holes (P1, P2, P3) on the Bay Whopper gold zone and one hole (P12) to test the Geotech air-borne TEM anomaly on the Nickel zone. A total of 900 to 1000 metres is expected to be drilled to test the various targets on the property. The Carrot River Property has been optioned to Cassius Ventures Ltd. (see Cassius' press release dated July 27, 2010).

Bay Wopper drill holes P1, P2 and P3 were designed to intersect the shear zone exposed on surface where previous grab sampling returned values up to 10.16 g/t gold. All three holes intersected the shear zone. Assay results will be released upon receipt.

The Bay Whopper zone is exposed in three small hand trenches and float over an apparent strike length of about 100 meters in a lowland area extensively covered by overburden and marsh. The zone remains open in all directions. Anomalous gold values were obtained in all three exposures. Mineralization occurs in sheared, silicified volcanics (sericitic schist) and sheared chert with locally abundant pyrite and arsenopyrite. In the area of Trenches 1 and 2, initial grab samples returned gold values up to 10.16 g/t gold. Chip sampling in Trench 2 returned 1.4 g/t gold over 4.5 meters (full width of trench); a 1.3 meter section across a sulphide-rich portion of the trench assayed 4.3 g/t gold. Trench 1 returned 178 ppb gold over the full 8-meter width of the trench, including 4 meters of 280 ppb gold. Hand Trench 3 is located about 75 meters east, along strike of Trenches 1 and 2. Seven consecutive 1-meter chip samples collected across the trench return values between 39 ppb and 1550 ppb gold with an overall average of 640 ppb gold.
