Walker River Resources starts drilling at Lapon Canyon gold project in Nevada

Vancouver- based Walker River Resources (TSXV: WRR) has announced that it has just started a drilling program at its Lapon Canyon gold project in Nevada.

Located 60 kilometres southeast of Yerington in the Wassuk Range, the project consists of 96 claims that occupy 1,940 acres.

In a media statement, Walker River said that this winter drilling campaign will focus on infill and expansion of the Lapon Rose zone, whose different areas have shown anomalous gold values.

The company will also do follow up drilling at a new discovery in the project's Hole RC 17-19. There are plans to drill other targets as well, which include other fault alteration zones that show evidence of previous workings.

"We are very excited and encouraged by these and past drill results which now confirm the potential of the project. The planed drilling will continue to develop our understanding of the gold mineralization zones which appear to be open in all directions," said Michel David, president of the Vancouver-based junior in the media brief.
