Quartz Mountain Exploration Update

November 15, 2013

VANCOUVER, Nov. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Quartz Mountain Resources Ltd. (“Quartz Mountain” or the “Company”)
(TSXV: QZM) (OTC: QZMRF)
announces an exploration update. Drilling has been undertaken at the
ZNT silver property located in central British Columbia (“BC”). The ZNT
property is being explored under a joint venture agreement with Amarc
Resources Ltd. (“Amarc”). Amarc has acquired a 60% interest and is
operator of the ZNT Project, and Quartz Mountain holds a 40% interest.

The ZNT exploration property was staked by Quartz Mountain in 2012 on
the basis of significant zinc concentrations in regional till samples
as reported by Geoscience BC. In 2012, the Company collected
approximately 2,400 grid soil geochemical samples and completed 20 line
kilometres of Induced Polarization ground geophysical survey. These
initial exploration activities defined a new and unusually strong
silver and multi-element-in-soils anomaly measuring 1.8 kilometres by
1.2 kilometres.

Quartz Mountain and Amarc entered into a joint venture on the project in
late 2012. As operator of the ZNT Joint Venture, Amarc completed a
pitting and trenching program on the property in July of this year,
designed to further refine the target outlined by Quartz Mountain’s
work in 2012. Some 170 rock and 36 soil geochemical samples were
collected during the 2013 program from 62 pits and trenches.
Integration of the data from these surface programs defined a silver
deposit-target hosted by volcanogenic sandstones. However, a recent
600-metre, 2-hole drill program indicated a limited extent to the
prospective host rock package and did not encounter economic
mineralization. As a result, no further work is planned at ZNT by
Amarc.

Quartz Mountain and Amarc are also in a 60/40 joint venture on the
Galaxie Project in northwestern BC. Amarc explored some of the targets
at Galaxie in 2013. As described in the Company’s September 19, 2013
news release, a series of alkali intrusions which are known to be the
principal hosts in the Stikine-Iskut porphyry belt for porphyry
copper-gold deposits were observed during the 2013 program around the
Hu target. Although Amarc plans no further work, the potential at Hu
and a number of other remaining target-areas identified during Quartz
Mountain’s 2012 program warrant further exploration.
