GWR Resources announces additional assays, Aurizon and Peach 1 Zones, Lac La Hache Project

    VANCOUVER, June 19 /CNW/ - GWR Resources Inc. (GWQ - TSX Venture) is
pleased to announce that it has received additional assay results for a number
of holes drilled during the Company's winter drilling program. Several of
these holes were positioned to provide geological information and although
they have returned no significant assay results they do help our understanding
of the geology.

    Aurizon Zone
    Mineralization within the Aurizon Zone is typically gold-enriched, such
that gold values in grams per tonne are about double the copper values in
percent, representing a 2:1 gold:copper ratio. However, recent results suggest
that there are also areas of strong gold enrichment independent of copper
content which may represent a relatively later, gold mineralizing event. This
is exemplified by hole AZ08-88, below, which intersected mineralization
containing gold:copper ratios of 4 to 6:1. The mineralization intersected in
these two holes lies along the western side of the Central Aurizon Zone, as
depicted in the updated figure "Aurizon Cu-Au Zone Drilling and Geology" at

    Peach 1 Prospect
    The first assays from holes drilled in the 2008 Peach 1 program have also
been received, and these confirm that low grade copper-gold mineralization
similar to results from an adjacent trench is peripheral to the high grade
mineralization intersected in drill hole PZ07-01. Copper-gold mineralization
at Peach I is irregular, disrupted by numerous faults. Determination of the
spatial distribution of the Peach 1 mineralization will require additional
drilling. A new figure depicting the Peach 1 drill collars and projections is
also now available on the Company's website. The corresponding geology and
mineralization information is currently being compiled and will be added soon.

    Drilling of the Peach I prospect has now been suspended until the
unusually wet ground conditions in that area, resulting from a late spring
thaw, dry up sufficiently to support movement of vehicles and machinery. At
that time, drilling will commence on the Peach 2 prospect located a few
hundred meters to the southeast of Peach 1. As mentioned in a previous news
release, the Peach 1 and 2 prospects may be part of a single, continuous zone.

    New Website Information
    In addition to the updated drill plans described above, two new tables
have been added to the website. These provide complete listings of all holes
drilled since 2006 in the Aurizon Zone (93 holes) and Peach 1 Zone (21 holes),
including collar coordinates, hole orientation and core length. The Company
will add significant mineralization intersections to these tables soon.
    To support the ongoing exploration of the Lac La Hache property, the
Company will undertake a soil geochemical orientation survey using the
proprietary Mobile Metal Ion (MMI) technique, to test its ability to detect
buried copper-gold mineralization. This orientation survey will be conducted
over known mineralization of the Aurizon zone and across the Peach 2 prospect
where previous conventional soil geochemical surveying has outlined the
largest copper-gold soil anomaly within the Lac La Hache project. Positive
results will encourage GWR to conduct these MMI surveys more rigorously over
several prospective areas within the large property.
