TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 25, 2012) - QMX GOLD CORPORATION (TSX:QMX)(OTCQX:QMXGF) ("QMX Gold" or the "Company") has produced approximately 5,200 ounces of gold from its Lac Herbin Mine in Val D'Or, Quebec in the third quarter of 2012. This brings total year to date production to over 16,000 ounces of gold.

Production Summary:

These results are in line with 2012 budget numbers and the Company is confident in achieving the 2012 production guidance of 18,500 to 20,500. Cash cost figures will be released as part of the third quarter financial results expected in mid-November.

The Aurbel Mill continues to experience a positive increase in recovery rates to 93.5% compared to 87% in the third quarter of 2011. Higher recoveries were a result of operational improvements in mill process and a higher grade of ore delivered to the mill.

Reviewing the third quarter results, Francois Perron commented, "We are pleased with the results of the efforts of our team in Val d'Or. Mining activities are continuing as planned and improvements in the mill are delivering better than expected results. These improvements bode well for the future as we are presently working on the reserve and life of mine planning. This new life of mine plan will reflect both these improvements and the exploration of the new zones that have been identified and are in the process of being drilled off."
