VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VR Resources Ltd. (TSX.V:VRR) (FSE:5VR), the "Company", or “VR”, is pleased to announce that it has staked a new property in connection with its copper-gold exploration in Nevada.  The new property, named Big Creek, will be explored concurrently with ongoing plans for a first pass diamond drill program this summer at the Company’s Bonita property in Humboldt County.

/EIN News/ --

The staking of the Big Creek property is the result of the Company’s evolving understanding of the geology and exploration potential of northwestern Nevada based on its three years of exploration at the Bonita Property.  Similar to the approach the Company took to Bonita three years ago, the Company staked the Big Creek property following a compilation of regional data sets in the Pine Forest Range, and a reconnaissance field examination of a district of historic copper and gold showings.  Upon acquisition and evaluation of satellite-based ASTER mineral reflectance data, the Company correlated an anomaly to a hydrothermally altered, veined and brecciated granite stock, and staked the Big Creek property.  Detailed geological, geochemical and geophysical surveys will be designed following the completion of reconnaissance mapping and sampling, and integration with available regional data sets. 

The Big Creek property consists of 30 claims in one contiguous block covering 620 acres (250 hectares). Big Creek adds to the Company’s copper and gold mineral exploration property portfolio and strategy in Nevada (see Figure 1 below; “property map” on  It was staked directly by VR and is owned 100%, with no associated royalties.  It occurs on land administered by the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM).  Annual land maintenance fees to the Company will be minimal, at US$5,800 per year. 

The Big Creek property is located on the eastern flank of the Pine Forest Range, due north across the Black Rock desert from the Company’s Bonita property (see Figure 2 below; “Big Creek property” map at  There is easy and direct road access to the property along Highway 140, heading north from Winnemucca.

The Bonita property continues to be the primary focus of the Company’s copper-gold exploration strategy in Nevada.  First-pass diamond drilling is planned for this summer, the culmination of some 2 ½ years of surface exploration and targeting for porphyry copper-gold deposits.  The property is large, encompassing a district of historic copper, gold and iron workings (see “satellite image” under Bonita Property at  The workings 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. 

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  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

There is very good road access both to, and within, the Bonita property, with railroad and powerline infrastructure located 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.
