October 5, 2015. Vancouver, BC. David H. Brett, President & CEO, GWR Resources Inc. (the “Company,” TSX Venture: GWQ) is pleased to report results of the Company’s recently completed exploration program at its 100% owned Lac La Hache Property in the Cariboo Region of central British Columbia.
The Program included 7 closely-spaced drill holes totaling 1990 metres targeting the Aurizon-South copper-gold breccia zone. Six of the seven drill holes encountered significant copper-gold-silver mineralization, such as AZS15-42 that intercepted 10 metres grading 7.7 grams per ton (gpt) gold, 1.3% copper, and 6.5 gpt silver, which includes a 5 metre interval grading 11.7 gpt gold, 1.5 % copper, 7.9 gpt silver. Hole AZS15-48 includes a 2 metre intercept grading 10.7 gpt gold. The Aurizon South breccia structure has been shown by previous drilling to have a strike length exceeding 300 m and extends to more than 600 metres below surface. Within this large structure, the recent drilling has expanded the high-grade portion of the structure known to exist at depths above 200 metres, by 75 meters along strike and 50 meters down dip. All significant Aurizon-South assay results are tabulated below.
“These strong drill results confirm the potential for a high grade gold-copper-silver underground mining target on the Lac La Hache property,” said GWR CEO David Brett. “In addition to more drilling in the area, GWR plans to develop an initial 43-101 compliant resource estimate for the Aurizon-South based on the new and previous data.”

In addition to the encouraging drill results at Aurizon South, GWR has discovered through surface prospecting the Berkey Zone, a new disseminated, copper-gold porphyry occurrence. The mode of occurrence of the copper mineralization (chalcopyrite) within the potassic, syenitic porphyry intrusive host, as true disseminations without fracture control, suggests this may be a significant, mineralizing (and mineralized) intrusion. All portions of the intrusion examined are visibly mineralized. Outcrop exposure of the prospect to date is low due to a thin overburden veneer. Hand work suggests the mineralized intrusion forms a 3 metre wide dike which has been traced 50 meters along strike. Assays from chip sampling across the main Berkey prospect produced a grade of 0.45% Cu over 2.4 m. Grab samples assayed 0.35% Cu, 0.47% Cu and 1.5% Cu.
“This new discovery occurs in a recently logged area where no prospecting has previously been done, mid-way between mineralization drilled at our Ann North and Harvey zones. We are excited about the potential implications of this true ‘disseminated porphyry-style’ discovery.” said GWR VP Exploration Rob Shives.
GWR plans to recommence drilling at Lac La Hache in mid-October. 2-3 holes totaling approximately 600 metres are planned targeting the Aurizon South targets. Additional surface work over the newly discovered Berkey Zone is also planned.
