GWR successfully intersects edge of high grade zone, outlines second lower grade zone, at Peach 1 Prospect

    VANCOUVER, June 26 /CNW/ - GWR Resources Inc. (TSXV: GWQ) now has assays
for seven additional holes drilled on its Peach 1 prospect, located to the
west of the Aurizon zone (see for location of zones,
drill collars and hole orientation information). The Peach 1 zone is underlain
by fine grained monzonite and, in an embayment within the monzonite, volcanic
breccia. The structural pattern is complex and characterized by abundant
faulting which has disrupted and displaced copper mineralization. This
drilling program was designed to test beneath low-grade mineralization
(0.20% copper over 65 metres) discovered in a surface trench, in the fall of
2007. As previously announced, the first hole (PZ07-01) missed the low-grade
zone under the trench, but successfully intersected much higher grade
mineralization below 190 metres downhole, assaying 0.50% copper and 0.42% gold
over 86 metres and including a 42 metre intersection grading 0.83% copper,
0.71 g/t gold (see News Release of November 23, 2007).
    Subsequent drilling in this area has extended the low grade copper zone,
as intersected in holes PZ08-15 and PZ08-18, released last week (June 19,
2008) and confirmed by assays now received from several holes, shown below.
The Company is pleased that one of these holes (PZ07-07) appears to have
successfully cut the edge of the higher grade mineralization, intersecting
14 metres grading 0.81% Cu and 1.22 g/t gold. The higher grades in holes
PZ07-01 and PZ07-07 occur within potassically altered orange monzonite
characterized by fracturing and brecciation (hydrothermal breccia),
chlorite-albite alteration and massive to semi-massive chalcopyrite with only
minor bornite. Lower grades in holes PZ07-02, 03, 04, 07 (top), 15 and 18
occur within both monzonite and polylithic volcanic breccias containing
intrusive clasts, and significant bornite accompanies chalcopyrite. The two
mineralization styles appear to be spatially separate, but may be genetically
related, forming the core and periphery, respectively, of a hydrothermal
mineralizing system. Alternatively, they may represent entirely separate
mineralizing events.
    Unseasonably wet weather conditions in the Lac La Hache region this year
has forced GWR to suspend drilling temporarily until ground conditions allow
the movement of machinery and vehicles. When conditions improve to the point
where drilling can continue again, it is intended to move the drill to the
Peach 2 prospect while the Peach 1 assay results and geology are being
compiled and interpreted. The Peach 2 prospect hosts a large soil geochemical
anomaly with favourable induced polarization response strongly suggestive of a
large (several hundreds of metres in length) copper-gold system. Where cut by
access trails, copper mineralization has been exposed in monzonite, both in
the northern and southern parts of this anomalous area.
