GWR Resources announces additional assays, Aurizon and Peach 1 Zones, Lac La Hache Project

June 19, 2008


GWR Resources Inc. (GWQ - TSX Venture) is pleased to announce that it has received additional assay results for a number of holes drilled during the Company’s winter drilling program. Several of these holes were positioned to provide geological information and although they have returned no significant assay results they do help our understanding of the geology.

Aurizon Zone

Mineralization within the Aurizon Zone is typically gold-enriched, such that gold values in grams per tonne are about double the copper values in percent, representing a 2:1 gold:copper ratio. However, recent results suggest that there are also areas of strong gold enrichment independent of copper content which may represent a relatively later, gold mineralizing event. This is exemplified by hole AZ08-88, below, which intersected mineralization containing gold:copper ratios of 4 to 6:1. The mineralization intersected in these two holes lies along the western side of the Central Aurizon Zone, as depicted in the updated figure “Aurizon Cu-Au Zone Drilling and Geology” at http://www.gwrresources.com/i/maps/aurizon_map_lg.gif.

Peach 1 Prospect

The first assays from holes drilled in the 2008 Peach 1 program have also been received, and these confirm that low grade copper-gold mineralization similar to results from an adjacent trench is peripheral to the high grade mineralization intersected in drill hole PZ07-01. Copper-gold mineralization at Peach I is irregular, disrupted by numerous faults. Determination of the spatial distribution of the Peach 1 mineralization will require additional drilling. A new figure depicting the Peach 1 drill collars and projections is also now available on the Company’s website. The corresponding geology and mineralization information is currently being compiled and will be added soon.

Drilling of the Peach I prospect has now been suspended until the unusually wet ground conditions in that area, resulting from a late spring thaw, dry up sufficiently to support movement of vehicles and machinery. At that time, drilling will commence on the Peach 2 prospect located a few hundred meters to the southeast of Peach 1. As mentioned in a previous news release, the Peach 1 and 2 prospects may be part of a single, continuous zone.

New Website Information

In addition to the updated drill plans described above, two new tables have been added to the website. These provide complete listings of all holes drilled since 2006 in the Aurizon Zone (93 holes) and Peach 1 Zone (21 holes), including collar coordinates, hole orientation and core length. The Company will add significant mineralization intersections to these tables soon.

To support the ongoing exploration of the Lac La Hache property, the Company will undertake a soil geochemical orientation survey using the proprietary Mobile Metal Ion (MMI) technique, to test its ability to detect buried copper-gold mineralization. This orientation survey will be conducted over known mineralization of the Aurizon zone and across the Peach 2 prospect where previous conventional soil geochemical surveying has outlined the largest copper-gold soil anomaly within the Lac La Hache project. Positive results will encourage GWR to conduct these MMI surveys more rigorously over several prospective areas within the large property.
