La Quinta Resources Announces Expansion of Claimblock at BlackJack Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 25, 2010) - La Quinta Resources Corporation ("La Quinta" or "The Company") (TSX VENTURE:LAQ) is pleased to announce that it has expanded its claim position at its BlackJack project located in Elko County, Nevada. The Company added 32 claims to its land position based on results of remote sensing interpretation and interpretation of results received on November 23rd, 2010 from a geophysical survey. The BlackJack land position now covers approximately 740 ac (299 ha), or 1.1 sq. mi.

Interpretation of color aerial photography indicated presence of a radial fracture system extending from identified gold, silver and base metals mineralization off the original Black Jack property. The fracture pattern is approximately 6,000 ft (1,800 m) x 2500 ft (770 m). The new claims cover this feature.

The portion of the IP survey completed on a distal extension from old mine workings identified chargeable zones in the same limestone hosting mineralization at the workings, in additional support of the immediate claimblock expansion. La Quinta's technical staffs are considering adjusting the survey configuration to better highlight these areas in the Spring.

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

About La Quinta Resources Corporation

La Quinta is a junior precious metals exploration company actively seeking mineral opportunities for the benefit of our stakeholders. Currently the Company is focused on exploring for gold and silver on its Easter Project and Black Jack properties in Nevada. The Easter Project is underlain by an epithermal quartz-adularia vein stockwork system hosted 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. The resultant 121 holes and five adits were used to outline a 43-101 compliant resource of 2.6 million tons at 1.3 g/t gold (0.038 oz/t) and 14 g/t silver (0.4 oz/t) within an area of gold mineralization with a strike length of at least 6,450 feet (1,966 m) and drill-defined widths up to 90 feet (27.4 m). Significant prior intercepts include up to 0.194 oz. Au / ton over 90 feet (6.6 g/t over 27.4m true thickness) (including 0.549 oz. Au / ton over 15 feet (18.8 g/t over 4.5m)) and 0.084 oz. / ton over 110 feet (including 0.534 oz. Au / ton over 5 feet) (2.88 g/t over 33.5 m w/internal 18.3 g/t in 1.52 m). The Black Jack property, an early-stage exploration target in NE Nevada, consists of old mine workings that contain silver-gold-base metals veins hosted in Ordovician limestones that overlie nearby Cambrian shale. No resource has been identified on this property.
