Galway Resources secures long term contract for drilling Lone Mountain copper zinc project

    ELKO, NV, June 12 /CNW/ - Galway Resources Ltd. (GWY: TSX-V) is pleased
to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Connors Drilling to
drill 25,000 feet (15 holes). Galway has just completed its second hole at
Lone Mountain with another drilling company, with the assay results expected
later this summer. The Lone Mountain property is a high grade copper zinc
project that has just under 63,000 feet of historical drilling from 34 holes,
and is located in a major copper porphyry district in Grant County, New
    The emphasis on the initial drilling program at Lone Mountain (10 holes
or 20,000 feet of drilling) will be to test the shallower mineralized
sediments where seven widely-spaced holes drilled northeast of the intrusion
contained interesting mineralization. Most notably, one of the historical
intercepts was 26.3 feet averaging 1.63% Cu, 13.73% Zn, 2.54% Pb, 0.04 oz
Au/ton and 3.38 oz Ag/ton. Upon completion of this first drilling program, the
drill rig will then be moved to the Victorio molybdenum tungsten project for
the second drilling campaign.
    "Unlike previous owners of the Lone Mountain project, whose focus was on
the larger lower grade copper system, the management of Galway has taken a
different approach and is targeting the high grade skarn-type copper-zinc
mineralization with substantial silver, gold, and lead credits. We think that
there is significant potential to expand on the known areas of high-grade
mineralization," cites Marshall Himes, COO of Galway Resources.

    About the Company

    Management is focused on developing three U.S. based exploration projects

We have established a solid technical team that has compiled all the
historical data and we are now advancing these projects in an aggressive but
cost effective manner. Management believes that its strategic portfolio of
properties offers investors an interesting exposure to a unique blend of
commodities (molybdenum, tungsten, copper, zinc, and silver).
