ARMSTRONG, BC, March 31 /CNW/ - GWR Resources Inc. (TSX Venture: GWQ) is
pleased to announce that it has now received the first assays from its 2008
drilling programme on the Company's Aurizon zone of its Lac La Hache project.
Drill holes AZ08-72 and AZ08-74 were drilled 50 metres apart along the trend
of the mineralization in the southern part of the Aurizon zone as part of a
programme to define the southern extent of the zone. Both holes encountered
chalcopyrite mineralization that passed down into a bornite-rich zone with
elevated gold values. Assay results are as follows:
Hole No. From(m) To(m) Length(m) Copper(%) Gold(g/t)
AZ08-72 78.0 170.0 92.0 0.25 0.53
Incl. 154.0 170.0 16.0 1.04 0.49
AZ08-74 38.0 120.0 82.0 0.37 0.95
Incl. 98.0 120.0 22.0 0.82 1.35
The central part of the Aurizon zone has now been traced over a distance
of 400 metres. To the north the zone has been fault offset to the east and
drilling in this area has successfully intersected the offset of the zone. The
southern limit of the central part of the Aurizon zone is also fault-defined
and work is proceeding to trace the interpreted offset of mineralization to
Bornite mineralization of the Aurizon zone appears to be distributed
along the western side of the southern part of the zone and increases in
thickness to the south. In addition, the degree of hydrothermal brecciation of
the host monzonite appears to increase to the west, corresponding to
increasing copper-gold grades in this direction.
