August 21, 2015. Vancouver, BC. David H. Brett, President & CEO, GWR Resources Inc. (the “Company,” TSX Venture: GWQ) is pleased to announce that the Company has completed the second tranche (the “Second Tranche”) of the non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) announced on June 24, 2015, raising gross proceeds of $100,000 as part of the $400,000 total aggregate gross proceeds raised to date under the Private Placement with the aggregate issuance of 8,000,000 units (the “Units”) of the Company at a price of $0.05 per Unit. Each Unit is comprised of one flow-through common share (a “Share”) and one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”), and each Warrant is exercisable at a price of $0.10 per Share for a period of 2 years from the date of issuance. The first tranche of the Private Placement closed on July 23, 2015. Proceeds of the Private Placement are expected to be used toward exploration on the Company’s 100% owned Lac La Hache Property in central British Columbia.
The drill program at the Lac La Hache property is progressing on schedule. Four holes totaling 1200 metres of the planned 2,000 metre 2015 program have now been completed. All 4 of the holes have successfully intersected the Aurizon Zone South mineralized structure at predicted core depths. The zone is characterized by strongly altered hydrothermal breccia containing pyrite and chalcopyrite. Assays are pending. Previous drilling along this structure has shown identical rocks contain multi-gram gold, percent-range copper and more than one ounce of silver within 2-meter core assays.
In connection with the closing of the Second Tranche of the Private Placement, the Company paid an aggregate amount of $8,000 in cash finder’s fees and issued 160,000 non‐transferable finder’s warrants (the “Finder’s Warrants”) to an eligible arm’s length finder. Each Finder’s Warrant is exercisable into a common share at a price of $0.10 per share until August 21, 2017.
All securities issued under the Second Tranche of the Private Placement are subject to a 4-month hold period expiring on December 22, 2015.
