GWR Focuses 100% on Copper-Gold

ARMSTRONG, BC, Dec. 18 /CNW/ - GWR Resources Inc. (TSX Venture: GWQ) announces that it is no longer proceeding with the acquisition of Deep Creek Oil & Gas Inc. ("Deep Creek") at this time. Deep Creek was under creditor protection when it entered into a letter of intent with GWR. The Letter of Intent called for GWR to issue 7,666,666 common shares at a deemed price of approximately $0.26 per share. Deep Creek is no longer under creditor protection. Given GWR's current stock price, it would be necessary to issue a larger number of shares in order to complete this acquisition. GWR's management does not feel it is desirable to issue a larger number of shares, as this would deleteriously dilute GWR's existing shareholders who have invested in GWR on the basis of its advanced stage copper-gold Lac La Hache property. With the return of good copper prices, and the record setting gold prices, GWR is of the opinion that its common shares are undervalued. Management of GWR and Deep Creek continue to be on very friendly terms.
