La Quinta Resources Reports Assay Results from Easter Property

La Quinta Resources has reported the assay results of the initial two holes from the resource expansion drilling program at the Easter gold-silver property in southeast Nevada.

The company has completed two percussion holes that are drilled vertically through the reverse circulation (RC) process and the holes are located on the Main vein’s down dip expansion at the Easter project. It has drilled 11-22 and 11-02 orientation holes to find out the site of the Main vein. The depths of these holes were 245 ft and 190 ft respectively.

The follow-up twinning by means of the drilling program will determine the true width since groundwater occurs at quite shallow depths. The RC drilling technique is not believed to be a precise sampling tool for the deposits with particulate gold, under the groundwater table, as a part of the gold on average is not retrieved. The core diamond drilling techniques are considered to be more precise, and will be employed for the completion of the drilling program as the groundwater and the position of the vein has been decided.

Moreover, La Quinta has completed three shallow RC orientation holes at the West Vein. The technical staff of the company has identified epithermal veins having 10 g/t gold in the surface reconnaissance samples during the early months of this year. Drilling has never been performed in this area and the assay results are pending.

The CEO of the company has stated that the drilling results in the resource region authenticate mineralization’s estimated depth, position and nature. There will be an increase in grades while employing diamond drilling methods at depths. The mineralized shoot orientation in the Main Vein can be consistently established as the drilling extends the identified resource along the strike and at the downdip. Drill program conducted at the formerly unexamined West Vein area, which is located around 3,200 ft west side of the indicated resource, will develop the technical understanding of the robust vein system’s commercial potential level.
