VANCOUVER, Nov. 13 /CNW/ - GWR Resources Inc. (the "Company") (TSX
Venture: GWQ) is pleased to announce that the Ministry of Mines has approved
the Company's application to significantly increase its drilling program to
104 drill holes along with trenching on its Lac La Hache project in south
central British Columbia. Accordingly, the Company now has two drills active
on the project, one that is continuing to drill the Aurizon copper-gold zone
and another that is drilling on the Peach 1 zone of copper-gold
mineralization, to the west of the Aurizon zone.
Copper-gold mineralization of the southeastern Aurizon zone has now been
traced over a distance of over 700 metres and is open to the northwest where
drilling is currently being conducted. An interpretation of the geology of the
Aurizon zone is underway with the construction of sections and level plans in
order to better understand the disposition of mineralization in this
stucturally complex area.
The Peach 1 zone, located about one kilometre to the west of the Aurizon
zone within a broad northwesterly trending "structural corridor" that hosts
all known copper-gold mineralization within the Lac La Hache project area, is
a zone of copper-gold mineralization that has seen no recent exploration.
Drill hole P1-07-01, the first hole that the Company has drilled at Peach 1,
is sited to test copper mineralization exposed in a trench within the zone.
This hole has intersected chalcopyrite and minor bornite at depth beneath the
trench as well as a second copper zone characterized by abundant chalcopyrite
associated with garnet-albite alteration. The Company is extremely encouraged
by the geology and mineralization that core from this hole is displaying.
The unprecedented amount of exploration being undertaken in British
Columbia in 2007 has resulted in significant delays in obtaining assays from
the Lac La Hache drilling program, a result of sample backlogs in all
accredited analytical laboratories. While the Company has some assays from its
summer drilling program, almost none are complete and, thus, results of only a
few holes have been released to date. It is expected that, at this late stage
of the 2007 exploration season, sample backlogs will be reduced and results
will begin to become available in the near future.
