New Gold, Copper, Molybdenum, REE Targets Defined at GWR's Lac

 
FSC / Press Release 
New Gold, Copper, Molybdenum, REE Targets Defined at GWR's Lac La Hache Project 
Lac La Hache, British Columbia CANADA, February 05, 2013 /FSC/ - GWR Resources
Inc.  (GWQ - TSX Venture)(the "Company" or "GWR")is pleased to report highly
encouraging results from new Ah-horizon geochemical surveys at their Lac La
Hache Project. Please refer to several NEW supporting images with additional
descriptions in a new presentation at www.gwrresources.com/s/Presentations.asp. 
Last year GWR significantly expanded the Lac La Hache project, through
acquisition of a large and highly prospective surrounding area (see Jan. 23.
2012 News Release).  Despite excellent potential, exploration within the new
ground prior to our acquisition was very sparse, inhibited by overburden and
young volcanic rock cover. To improve exploration vectoring, in late 2012 (see
Oct. 4 and Nov. 29, 2012 News Releases) we completed a property-wide Ah-horizon
soil survey, a method that has been gaining acceptance as new studies
demonstrate successful detection of blind mineralization in similar settings
throughout the Quesnel Trough. 
In October, GWR staff and contractors trained by Dr. Colin Dunn, an expert in
the method, collected nearly 1200 samples on 500 m centers throughout the 400
km2 (154 mi2) property. Samples, field duplicates and quality control standards
were analysed by ALS Labs Vancouver for 51 elements. Dr. Dunn's preliminary
interpretation report entitled "Soil Geochemical Survey, Ah Horizon - Lac La
Hache, British Columbia, January 2013" is available for viewing at
www.gwrresources.com/s/TechnicalReports.asp. In addition to valuable bedrock
mapping assistance the new multi-element geochemical patterns define discrete
anomalies over known Cu (+/-Au, Ag) zones, demonstrating that the method is
working. More importantly, new anomalies are indicated in several areas. 
Geochemical Survey Results: New Exploration Targets 
New Gold-Copper-Silver Anomalies
Multi-element, multi-site gold anomalies (several supported by elevated
concentrations of pathfinder elements silver, arsenic, bismuth, antimony,
tellurium and particularly tungsten) have been defined in unexplored areas in
the west, northwest, northeast and central parts of the property (see related
image at www.gwrresources.com). One of these is located immediately west of
Murphy Lake, covering 7 km2 and defined by 16 contiguous anomalous gold sites
along >5 km (>3 mi) strike. Five additional Ah-horizon gold target areas are
also indicated, including the highest Ah-horizon gold value obtained, within a
single site on the eastern flank of the previously outlined "M1" magnetic
anomaly. This site also has very high tungsten, an association that has been
recognized at many other deposits in the Quesnel Trough, and is considered a key
indicator. A drill hole proposed last year (but not drilled) in this area will
be much better positioned using the new data. 
New Copper Anomalies
Multi-site Ah-horizon copper anomalies occur in more than six areas. One of
these occurs just west of the two northern "M1" holes completed last year,
supporting our drill-results-based interpretation to explore west of those
collars. Another anomaly lies just southeast of the Murphy Prospect drilling.
Again, the new Ah results provide much improved targeting of potential copper
mineralization. A very strong copper anomaly in the northeastern corner of the
property lies along the prominent magnetic ring in a broad target area
previously defined by airborne gamma ray spectrometric/magnetic surveys,
offering another excellent target. 
New "Scorpio" Molybdenum Anomaly
Highest molybdenum values within the new survey form a large anomaly defined by
20 sites over 9 km2, along a strike of more than 3 km (1.8 mi) east of Two Mile
Lake. Mo concentrations are 5 to 50 times local background. This strong anomaly
lies directly along a NW trending aeromagnetic feature within the Murphy
intrusion. The target here may be analogous with the intrusion-hosted, Gold
Field's Woodjam Southeast copper deposit (146.5 million tonnes grading 0.33%
copper, with accessory molybdenum, gold, silver) located 17 km north, on
adjoining ground. 
New Rare Earth Element-Yttrium-Multielement Anomaly
Northeast of Spout Lake, unusual enrichments of rare earth elements (REE) and
associated metals occur. High concentrations of copper, yttrium, lanthanum,
gallium, lithium, uranium, thorium and selenium are accompanied by elevated
levels of beryllium, gallium and hafnium. Property-wide, this elemental
assemblage is unique and may reflect mineralized pegmatitic occurrences
containing copper or REE potential within the Murphy intrusion. 
Summary
The new Ah-horizon soil survey has exceeded our expectations, providing several
new, large copper, gold, molybdenum and multi-element anomalies centered over
known mineralized and unexplored areas. GWR's technical and management teams are
encouraged by this exciting new geochemical layer and the improved exploration
focus it provides within known mineralized areas at Peach, Aurizon and Miracle
prospects. Our 2013 exploration plan includes new detailed ground magnetometer
and induced polarization surveys over the Scorpio and possibly other anomalies
before break-up to support summer exploration and drilling. We are confident we
can meet our goal to continue to define new mineralized zones to build upon the
existing Resource at Lac La Hache. As part of the path to grow the Resources at
Lac La Hache the Company is actively pursuing Strategic Alliances to maximize
return to its shareholders through enhanced geological knowledge, capital
availability and market awareness of the Company and the potential of its Lac La
Hache property. 
GWR Resources 
GWR is an active mineral exploration company currently exploring for gold and
base metals in British Columbia's prolific Quesnel Trough. The Lac La Hache
copper-gold porphyry/skarn magnetite-copper project hosts multiple zones
containing commercial grades of gold, copper, silver and magnetite. The project
is located between producing mines at Imperial Metals' Mt. Polley Copper-Gold
Mine and New Gold Inc.'s New Afton Copper-Gold project (Teck-Cominco's legendary
Afton mine), adjacent to Woodjam Consolidated Copper - Gold Fields' Woodjam
Project, and is well-served by rail, road and power infrastructure.
