Quest Uranium Receives Encouraging Uranium Results From George River Area Projects, Northeastern Quebec

Highlights: - Highly anomalous uranium results were returned during routine prospecting and geological mapping on the Nanuk property, forming part of an extensive zone measuring 50 to 500 metres wide and at least 4.0 kilometres in strike length. - Bedrock channel and boulder grab sampling has confirmed the presence of widespread uranium mineralization reported in September 2008. Best assays of 2.44% U3O8 (was returned from angular boulders in the JM area.) - Diamond drilling of geological fences across the LK and Willy uraniferous zones has confirmed the depth continuity to mineralization and favourable geology defined by surface exploration. - Prospecting on the Stewart Lake property has led to the discovery of a Rare Earth Element (REE) mineralized granitic body returning appreciable quantities of REE, zirconium, yttrium, niobium and uranium.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 20, 2008) - Quest Uranium Corporation (TSX VENTURE:QUC) along with partner Nebu Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NBU) are pleased to announce that encouraging geochemical results have been received from the Nanuk property (see Figure 1) and has confirmed the presence of extensive uranium mineralization on the property (see Press Release: September 4, 2008). The mineralized area, traced continuously over a strike length in excess of 4.0 kilometres and over widths of 50 to 500 metres returned outcrop grab sample results of between 0.21% and 0.52% U3O8 (4.7 to 11.8 lbs/t) and bedrock channel sample results of up to 0.11% U3O8 (2.64 lbs/t) over 2.0 metres. In addition, an extensive uranium-mineralized boulder field defined over the DC zone (see Figure 2) returned in excess of 70 uraniferous boulders, 19 of which graded between 0.11% and 2.44% U3O8 (2.24 to 54.6 lbs/t). Anomalous radioactivity underlying the boulders is believed to reflect the in-situ presence of an extensive bedrock uranium zone.

Prospecting crews also discovered uranium (U), zirconium (Zr), yttrium (Y), niobium (Nb) and Rare Earth Element (REE) mineralization associated with a course-grained granitic body within the Stewart Lake claim block (Figure 1). Grades obtained from sampling of the area are similar to those reported for the Strange Lake deposit, Quebec and Thor Lake deposit, Northwest Territories. More exploration work will be required in 2009 to define the extent of the mineralized granite and the economic significance of the discovery.

"Management is extremely pleased with the success of the exploration program at George River and the results obtained to date," said Peter Cashin, Quest's President & CEO. "The mineralized area at Nanuk is very extensive and will require further evaluation in order to properly assess the economic impact of the numerous uranium zones identified there. The discovery of important concentrations of rare earth metals on the Stewart Lake property adds a significant new dimension to the economic potential of the area."

2008 EXPLORATION PROGRAM

Nanuk Property Results

The Nanuk Zone is a large area of uranium mineralization discovered in 2007. The uranium mineralization is hosted within leucogranites, intermingled with biotite gneisses. The mineralization discovered on the property is associated with strong radiometric anomalies.

A total of 450 line kilometres of gridding was completed over the Nanuk mineralized region and follow-up detailed prospecting and geological mapping completed. Four new zones of uranium mineralization (Nanuk LK, DC, JM and SG, see Figure 2) were discovered to the north of previously-defined mineralized areas. In-fill prospecting and mapping shows excellent continuity to the mineralization between the new Nanuk JM and Willy (previously Nanuk 1) zones and has been traced at surface over widths of between 50 and 500 metres. Good continuity of the uraniferous zone over a minimum strike length of 4,000 metres has been observed. The most continuous uranium mineralization is associated with leucogranites that have been flooded by intense silica and biotite. Brecciated leucogranite is common in these areas. Biotite-rich and occasionally sulphide-bearing sedimentary gneisses are interleaved with the leucogranite and occur as large blocks within the intrusive host to mineralization.

Diamond drilling to test the geology and mineralization across the LK and Willy zones confirmed the depth continuity to favourable geology and uranium mineralization defined from surface exploration over the zones. Drilling returned wide zones of anomalous uranium mineralization, associated with hematite-biotite-silica altered magmatic granitic breccias.

Stewart Lake Property Results

Previous exploration on the claims had identified numerous uraniferous outcrops, subcrop and large boulders traced by prospecting over a distance of approximately 2.5 km and over a width of up to 700 m. The mineralized host rocks are predominantly coarse-grained to very coarse-grained granitoids containing moderate to intense biotite and magnetite mineralization. The granitoid rocks located within this area are moderately fractured and brecciated. A prominent yellow staining and hematitic alteration is commonly found coating fractures and occurring as breccia filling within the granitoid units. The Stewart Lake mineralization is closely associated with a large east-northeast trending airborne radiometric anomaly (eU/eTh and eU); defined over a strike length of 4.0 km. Prospecting crews completed evaluation of the numerous radiometric anomalies present on the Stewart Lake property during the summer. Work there has confirmed the significance of the previously-defined mineralization on the property and will be the focus of future exploration on the property.

In addition to the assessment of the uranium potential of the Stewart Lake area, prospectors located uranium (U), zirconium (Zr), yttrium (Y), niobium (Nb) and Rare Earth Element (REE) mineralization associated with a course-grained granitic body. The mineralized granite is associated with a large radiometric anomaly measuring 2.25 km by 1.5 km. Several grab samples from preliminary work over the target area returned combined Y oxide (Y2O3) and Total Rare Earth Element oxides (TREO) of up to 4.35%. Individual uranium (U3O8) and zirconium (ZrO2) analyses of up to 0.36% and 1.34%, respectively, were also returned from sampling of the granite. The individual analyses, although of a preliminary nature, compare favourably with known Canadian REE resources, namely the Strange Lake REE-Zr-Y deposit in Quebec and Avalon Ventures' Thor Lake REE-Zr-Y-Be (beryllium) deposit, Northwest Territories. Very few technical details of this new occurrence are available to assess the importance of the new discovery at this time. More exploration work will be required in 2009 to define the extent of the mineralized granite and the economic significance of the discovery.

Quality Control

Dr. George Jenner, P. Geo., is the qualified person on the George River Project under National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed this news release. Material for analysis has been obtained from grab samples from outcrop and boulders, as well as from channels cut into outcrop. A strict QA/QC program is followed which includes uranium standards and duplicates. Analyses are being performed by Activation Laboratory Limited of Ancaster, Ontario.
