La Quinta Resources Acquires Coppertonic Copper-Gold Property

Vancouver, B.C., August 15th 2013 – La Quinta Resources Corporation (TSX-V: LAQ / Frankfurt: LQK / OTCBB: LQRCP) (“La Quinta” or the “Company”) has acquired a copper-gold porphyry prospect in the Cariboo region of south central British Columbia. The prospect, the Coppertonic claim, consisting of 24 claim units covering 480 hectares (1,185 acres), was acquired by staking and is 100% owned by La Quinta.

The Coppertonic claim, located south of Canim Lake (350 kilometres northeast of Vancouver), covers the eastern portion of a copper-gold occurrence historically called the Sleeping Giant prospect. Previous explorers of Coppertonic have included Dome Mines Limited, Pioneer Metals Corporation, Cominco Limited and Fjordland Exploration Inc.

Coppertonic covers a monzonite porphyry stock intruding alkalic volcanic rocks of Triassic-Jurassic age which are included in the Quesnel Terrane. Although predominantly covered by glacial till, a prominent magnetic anomaly centered on the property is interpreted to reflect a larger area of covered porphyry than what outcrops. Historic drilling on the prospect has included an aggregate of nineteen percussion drill holes and three diamond drill holes completed by Dome Mines, Cominco and Pioneer.
Relevant deposit models for the style of mineralization and geological setting which occurs at Coppertonic include New Afton, BC (New Gold Inc.), Woodjam, BC (Goldfields / Consolidated Woodjam Copper Corp.) and North Rok, BC (Colorado Resources Ltd.).

La Quinta has engaged J.W. Morton P.Geo to prepare a compliant report to be filed within the next month and to review and take responsibility for this news release as it pertains to the requirements of National Instrument 43-101.
