VR Resources Stakes More Ground to Extend the Bonita Copper-Gold Property, Nevada

Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VR Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:VRR) (FSE:5VR), the "Company", or “VR”, is pleased to announce that it has staked additional claims to increase the size of its wholly owned Bonita copper-gold property located in northwestern Nevada, USA. 

The Company has increased the size of the Bonita property by 32% by staking 103 claims which extend the existing property of 326 claims farther to the south and east (see satellite image at www.vrr.ca).  The property now totals 429 claims covering 3,586 ha, an area of approximately 5 x 6 kilometres.

The new claims cover ground the Company views as prospective based on reconnaissance geological, geochemical and geophysical data.  The company fully expects to complete at least one IP test line over one specific target on the new ground during the current Induced Polarization (IP) geophysical program (see previous news release dated May 11, 2017). 

The Bonita property is large, encompassing a district of historic copper, gold and iron showings.  The showings are unified by a single, district-scale hydrothermal system with a large, mappable alteration footprint covering the entire property, within which copper sulfide and gold mineralization has been sampled by VR over an area of about 4 x 5 kilometres (see copper analyses on www.vrr.ca).  VR has identified 8 integrated and specific targets for buried porphyry copper stocks within the overall hydrothermal system evident at Bonita. 

The Company continues to develop plans for a first pass drill program at Bonita this summer.  The Company looks forward to providing further updates as exploration continues. 

About the Bonita Property

The Bonita property is located in Humboldt County in northwestern Nevada, USA, approximately 200 km northeast of Reno, and 75 km northwest of the town of Winnemucca. 

The Bonita property is large, consisting of one contiguous block of 429 claims totaling 3,586 ha (8,862 acres), covering an area of approximately 5 x 6 kilometres (see satellite-based image at www.vrr.ca ).  The property was acquired by staking, and is owned 100% by VR, free and clear of any interests or royalties.  There are no government-required exploration expenditures.  VR has conducted successive exploration programs at Bonita over the past 2 ½ years (see “work programs summary” at www.vrr.ca).

There is very good road access both to, and within, the Bonita property.  Further, there is a national railroad and state power line approximately 20 kilometres to the south.  Bonita is located in desert-like basin and range physiography, affording nearly year-round working conditions.  Vegetation is sparse, and there are no towns or settlements near the property.
