About La Quinta Resources Corporation

La Quinta is a junior exploration company actively seeking mineral opportunities for the benefit of all our stakeholders. Currently the Company is focused on exploring for gold on its Easter Project and silver on its Black Jack Property in Nevada. The Easter Project is underlain by a quartz-adularia vein stockwork system within Tertiary volcanic rocks of the Caliente Caldron Complex of southeastern Nevada. Numerous drill programs were conducted over the past 27 years by several operators and 121 holes outlined an area of gold mineralization with a strike length of at least 6,450 feet and widths up to 90 feet. Significant prior intercepts include up to 0.194 oz. Au / ton over 90 feet (including 0.549 oz. Au / ton over 15 feet) and 0.084 oz. / ton over 110 feet (including 0.534 oz. Au / ton over 5 feet).

A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historic resource estimate as current mineral resources or to verify the analytical work as reliable. These do not meet current 43-101 standards and are presented here only as an indication of the amount of gold mineralization.
