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 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 and drill-defined 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). 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.
