GWR Resources Lac La Hache update: Additional Aurizon Zone assays, Peach 1 Zone drilling nears completion, Peach 2 drilling to commence

June 2, 2008

Aurizon Zone

GWR Resources Inc. (TSXV: GWQ) is pleased to announce assay results from three additional
holes from its 2008 Aurizon Zone Phase 1 drill program on its Lac La Hache copper-gold property,
British Columbia.

                                          Core                       Azimuth

    includes            68       104        36      0.27      0.51
    AZ08-76             78       105        27      0.27      0.46   270/-60
    AZ08-80             74       120        46      0.21      0.45   270/-60

The locations of these drill holes are indicated on the Generalized Geology and Drill Hole Locations map of the Aurizon Zone, which can be found on the Company’s website at These holes were designed to test the eastern periphery of the central Aurizon Zone and to add to the Company’s understanding of the complex internal structures, marked by numerous minor faults which have disrupted the continuity of mineralization. Relatively tight drill hole spacing has been used to define these structures, supporting the establishment of a reliable block model for resource estimation.

To date, assays remain pending for 21 holes drilled under the now completed Phase 1 Aurizon Zone 2008 Program. These will be released as soon as they are received from the assayer, following verification. As announced on May 21, 2008, faulted extensions of the Zone to north and south remain open and will be further tested in a second phase of Aurizon Zone drilling, once permitting is approved.

Peach 1 and 2 Prospects

The Company is nearing completion of Phase 1 drilling on its Peach 1 prospect where 21 holes to date have encountered visible mineralization within volcanic and intrusive host rocks. Assay results for all or portions of 9 holes have been received and will be released soon, following verification, accompanied by a detailed geology/mineralization map. The Company is encouraged by the results to date and awaits permitting approval to support additional drilling in the same area. In the meantime, the Company will commence drilling in a permitted area designated as the Peach 2 Prospect, located approximately 400 m to the southeast of Peach 1. The locations of these Zones are indicated on a generalized colour geology map on the Company’s web site. At Peach 2, well defined, coincident soil geochemical, ground and airborne geophysical anomalies define a new, prospective target - the largest soil Cu-Au-Ag anomaly within the entire property. Recent drill road construction into the Peach 2 Prospect exposed previously undiscovered, copper-mineralized bedrock, providing strong evidence that the soil anomaly directly overlies the mineralized source rocks. The Company is eager to begin exploration in this exciting new area. The currently drilldefined trend of Peach 1 mineralization strikes southeast at approximately 120 degrees, directly towards the Peach 2 copper-gold-silver soil geochemical anomaly, suggesting a potentially continuous zone. Phase 2 drilling will test this possibility.

Additional News

This summer, the Company will continue evaluation of additional targets within its large Lac La Hache Project, including prospecting of coincident airborne and ground geophysical/geochemical anomalies. Cooperative field studies designed to improve understanding of the surficial and bedrock geology will be undertaken in partnership with scientists from the Geological Survey of Canada in Ottawa and Vancouver. Quaternary geology expert Alain Plouffe will examine surficial deposits (glacial/fluvial material), related chemistry and mineralogy, to better interpret the sources and significance of soil copper/gold anomalies. Bedrock mapping expert Bob Anderson will sample various intrusions on the property for their chemical compositions and age dating, to improve geological and exploration models. Ground gamma ray spectrometric studies by consultant Rob Shives (GamX Inc) will help explain sources of the large, anomalous airborne spectrometric patterns, which appear similar to those associated with porphyry copper-gold mines in the Mount Polley, Afton, Mount Milligan and several others areas. The Company will also evaluate the utility of a new high-performance portable XRF analyser, as a tool to screen drill core and surface samples for subsequent lab assaying. If successful, the technique may allow the Company to reduce significantly the number of (unmineralized) samples sent for geochemical assays, thereby reducing costs and assay turn-around delays.


The Company has purchased a large and well designed facility to support consolidation and expansion of existing office, core logging/processing and secure core storage facilities. The site is ideally located along paved Highway 97, only a few kms from amenities in Lac La Hache and 15 minutes from the exploration property. Photos of this new site are posted at The Company will complete minor renovations before moving into the new building later this summer.

The Company maintains a quality assurance/quality control program that conforms to the requirements of National Instrument 43-101. David G. Bailey, Ph.D., P. Geo., is the Qualified Person (as defined by NI43-101) who accepts responsibility for the technical content of this news release.
