SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwired - Oct. 22, 2014) - GESPEG COPPER RESOURCES INC. (TSX VENTURE:GCR) (the "Company" or "Gespeg") is pleased to announce our summer exploration update from Port Daniel Project. During the summer of 2014, Gespeg initiated a soil, stream and bank survey on Port Daniel property. The purpose of the campaign was to define exploration targets for copper (Cu), silver (Ag), gold (Au) and other minerals (53 elements). The program consisted of 73 stream sediment samples along with 146 soil samples from stream banks. Additionally, 323 soil samples were taken from the project lands following targets established from a 2013 geophysical survey. Statistical analysis indicates correlation assemblages commonly associated with four types of mineralisation or geological environments:

  1. Hydrothermal systems
  2. Quartz-carbonate veins
  3. Mafic intrusions
  4. Ultramafic intrusions

The soil survey results indicate:

  1. 9 anomalous zones for the soil geochemical survey grids in the northern part of the property also associated with diverse anomalous elements.
  2. 4 anomalous zones from the stream-sediment survey covering the entire property, also associated with diverse anomalous elements.
  3. 11 anomalous zones from the stream bank survey covering the entire property, associated with diverse anomalous elements.

Furthermore, a total of 7 soil samples with high metal values have been collected and are interpreted to lie directly above a potential mineralized zone. Therefore these are top priority targets to follow with prospecting and likely trenching.
