August 10, 2015. Vancouver, BC. David H. Brett, President & CEO, GWR Resources Inc. (the “Company,” TSX Venture: GWQ) reports that drilling has commenced at the Company’s 100% owned Lac La Hache Copper-Gold Property in the Cariboo region of central British Columbia. The drill program is focused on the Aurizon South Gold-Copper-Silver zone and aims to extend high-grade gold mineralization encountered in past drilling campaigns, such as hole AZS08-07 that intersected 6.3 grams per tonne (gpt) over 26m (including 10.4 gpt over 14m, with three 2m assays of 15 gpt). The program is expected to continue through the month of August.
Also, the Company has applied to, and has received the approval of, the TSX Venture Exchange for a 30 day extension to complete the non-brokered private placement financing announced on June 24, 2015, for gross proceeds of $400,000, extending the financing period to September 9, 2015.

Each Unit consists of one flow-through common share and one warrant (“Warrant”) with each Warrant entitling the holder to acquire one non-flow through common share at a price of $0.10 per share for a period of two years from the date of issue.
