2011 News

Vancouver, BC, Sept 14, 2011 - Cariboo Rose Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: CRB) (“Cariboo Rose”) and La Quinta Resources Corporation (TSX-V: LAQ) (“La Quinta”) are pleased to announce that diamond drilling has commenced on the Carruthers Pass volcanogenic massive sulfide project. The Carruthers Pass claims are located 70 km south of the Kemess copper-gold mine in the Omineca Mining Division and are approximately 3,250 hectares in size. Drilling is targeting three areas initially. Full Force Drilling of Peachland, B.C. has been contracted to drill up to 1,000 m (3,250 ft) NQ core in this helicopter supported program. Sampling of visibly altered and mineralized intervals is also in progress.

Initial drilling targeted massive sulfide mineralization approximately 10.0 m x 7.0 m which is interpreted to be a detached slab from a collapse of the cliff face. The angle drilling intersected 3.0 m thickness of copper-dominant massive sulfide in contact with metagabbro, beneath which was unconsolidated material. Quarter-split samples of this core have also been submitted to labs for analysis. During due-diligence review of the project, the La Quinta sampled this boulder to confirm historical values reported in prior technical reports. Values from those grabs are as follows:

Sample No. Au (g/t) Ag (g/t) Cu (%) Zn (%)
080711-01  3.84  147  2.43  2.90 
080711-02  0.85  111  1.81  6.46 
080711-03  3.38  82  1.49  4.21 

The values compare favorably with historic sampling reported previously at this location:

Sample No. Au (g/t) Ag (g/t) Cu (%) Zn (%)
62692  2.100  56  1.12  7.05 
72638  0.169  >99  2.62  2.99 
63454  0.458  >99  3.13  4.50 
Govt-A 3.170  250  4.44  4.48 

In addition to the drilling, an Induced Polarization surface survey (“IP”) is underway. Scott Geophysics is the contractor for this IP survey.

Carruthers Pass is under option to La Quinta. Under the terms of the LOI, Cariboo Rose has granted a six year option to acquire 90% of the project to La Quinta in exchange for $2 million dollars on exploration, payments of $470,000 dollars to Cariboo Rose and issuing 2 million shares of common stock to Cariboo Rose. La Quinta has also been granted the opportunity to acquire the remaining 10% interest from Cariboo Rose at fair market value. The project is subject to a 2.5% royalty, which may be reduced to 1% royalty by purchase from the underlier, Phelps Dodge Corporation of Canada Limited for $1.5 million.
