ARMSTRONG, BRITISH COLUMBIA - GWR Resources Inc. (TSX Venture: GWQ) is pleased to announce that it has now received the first assays from its 2008 drilling programme on the Company’s Aurizon zone of its Lac La Hache project. Drill holes AZ08-72 and AZ08-74 were drilled 50 metres apart along the trend of the mineralization in the southern part of the Aurizon zone as part of a programme to define the southern extent of the zone. Both holes encountered chalcopyrite mineralization that passed down into a bornite-rich zone with elevated gold values. Assay results are as follows:
Hole No. From(m) To(m) Length(m) Copper(%) Gold(g/t)
AZ08-72 78.0 170.0 92.0 0.25 0.53
Incl. 154.0 170.0 16.0 1.04 0.49
AZ08-74 38.0 120.0 82.0 0.37 0.95
Incl. 98.0 120.0 22.0 0.82 1.35
The central part of the Aurizon zone has now been traced over a distance of 400 metres. To the north the zone has been fault offset to the east and drilling in this area has successfully intersected the offset of the zone. The southern limit of the central part of the Aurizon zone is also fault-defined and work is proceeding to trace the interpreted offset of mineralization to the south.
Bornite mineralization of the Aurizon zone appears to be distributed along the western side of the southern part of the zone and increases in thickness to the south. In addition, the degree of hydrothermal brecciation of the host monzonite appears to increase to the west, corresponding to increasing copper-gold grades in this direction.
Sampling and assay methodology conform to the requirements of National Instrument 43-101. David G. Bailey, Ph.D., P.Geo. is the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and accepts responsibility for the content of this news release.
