    LAQ: TSX-V

    VANCOUVER, June 26 /CNW Telbec/ - La Quinta Resources Corp. ("La Quinta"
or, the "Company") (TSX-V: LAQ) of Vancouver, British Columbia is pleased to
announce that the TSX Venture Exchange has now approved the completion of the
Exploration and Option and Joint Venture agreements signed on April 23rd 2008
between the Company and Wa Balengela Kasai Investments (Congo) sprl (See Press
Release No. 08-06 dated April 23rd, 2008.) The Exploration and Joint venture
agreements between WBK and the Company cover a total of 32 Permis de Recherche
granted to WBK by the Democratic Republic of Congo's Mining Registry, Cadastre
Minier, on March 10th 2008. The 32 Permits cover a total of 7,010 square
kilometers of gold exploration ground on the Maniema South Kivu Gold belt
between and abutting the Lugushwa and Namoya multi million ounce properties of
Banro Corporation (TSX:BAA)
    Mr. Malcolm Swallow, the Company's Chairman and CEO commented, "We are
delighted to finally complete theses Entry, Option and Joint Venture
Agreements and to obtain TSXV approval for the transaction. We, and our
partners Wa Balengela Kasai have been working on this transaction for almost
two years, including, clearing the title and obtaining the final signed Permis
de Recherche, before we could finally sign and complete the transaction. The
highly prospective nature of the ground in a well known and readily identified
gold belt with two major discoveries by others in the area, has lead to a
highly competitive and difficult title exercise and makes it doubly satisfying
to finally complete the acquisition for the Company.
    We have an experienced and extensive set up in DRC led by Michel Cormier,
P.Geo, the Company's President and COO, who is a known mine finder in Africa
and an experienced explorationist and this means that we can get off to an
early and rapid start to our exploration efforts, using our existing team of
geologists and support personnel and aided by WBK. We look forward to a rapid
and effective exploration program working on two fronts to explore this
extensive gold belt."
