                                           The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has long been known as a mineralogical jewel box in the heart
                                           of Africa. The country has a long history of mineral production stretching from the gold belts in the
                                           North East, through the columbite and tantalite (Coltan) and diamond producing areas in the centre
                                           of the country down to the major copper province of Katanga, abutting the Zambian copper belt in
                                           the south. The changing political climate coupled with the recent UN sponsored democratic elections
                                           combine to make this one of Africa’s most exciting mineralogical opportunities.
                                           La Quinta has moved rapidly to join the many successful companies working in the DRC under the new
                                           constitution by signing the Joint-Venture agreements with its Congolese partners, Wa Balengela Kasai
                                           Investments-Congo spri (WB Kasa) to explore and JV 7,010 square kilometers of the prolific Maniema-
                                           South Kivu gold belt. Here, recent exploration work by Banro Corporation has developed resources over
                                           four separate projects in a 200 km-long clearly defined mineralized trend overlaying prior production
                                           from the colonial era.
                                                                                                                        TSX.V - LAQ
                                          Corporate Responsibility
                                          La Quinta is committed to the establishment of social,
                                          environmental, health and safety programs to directly assist
                                          communities in our operational areas.
