La Quinta Resources Announces Geophysics Program at BlackJack Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 8, 2010) - La Quinta Resources Corporation ("La Quinta" or "The Company") (TSX VENTURE:LAQ) is pleased to announce that it has engaged SJ Geophysics of Delta, BC to conduct an electrical geophysical survey at its BlackJack property located in Elko County, Nevada. The survey will consist of approximately 22,600 lineal feet (7 km) using pole-dipole time domain induced polarization technique. Historic data shows that reconnaissance sampling of outcropping veins and underground workings conducted in 2007 returned significant lead, silver, zinc, gold and copper values associated with polymetallic sulfides hosted in veins within Ordovician limestones. The survey lines are situated over and flanking the historic workings on the property. The IP technique is anticipated to be useful for delineating hidden veins and replacement style massive sulfide lead-silver mineralization in unexplored regions below and distal to the historic underground workings.

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.

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.
