La Quinta Resources Announces Drill Program on Its Easter Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 12, 2010) - La Quinta Resources Corporation ("La Quinta" or "The Company") (TSX VENTURE:LAQ) is pleased to announce that it has applied for drilling permits with the appropriate Federal agency for the Easter project located south east of Nevada, USA. CEO Glen Watson commented: "We are excited to begin drilling on highly prospective targets that have the possibility to increase our 43-101 resource." The approval of the drilling program under a Notice of Intent is pending review by the Caliente office of the Bureau of Land Management and acceptance of reclamation bonding.

La Quinta has applied to drill 3,200 ft of reverse circulation percussion drilling in 16 drill holes sited in the outcrop of the Main Vein at Easter. The outcrop is more than 1,500 ft long and as much as 200 ft above the valley floor with widths of the vein of 10 – 100 ft. This program is designed to sample the previously exposed part of the Main Vein in multidimensional aspect, as part of La Quinta's systematic approach to quantifying mineralization at the Easter project.

The information contained in this news release has been reviewed, approved and deemed relevant by Walter Martin, C.P.G., a qualified person as defined under National Instrument 43-101.
