Western Pacific Encounters 1.5 ft grading 82.7 g/t Gold and 24,981 g/t Silver - Highest Grade Intercept To Date

 Vancouver, BC, Canada – January 5, 2015 – Western Pacific Resources Corp. ("Western Pacific" or the "Company") (TSX-V: WRP) announces the completion of the diamond drill program at the Deer Trail Mine, located in Piute County, Utah. The Company exceeded its planned program by drilling 19,131 ft in a total of 46 holes. The company is now assessing the results of the drill program and performing metallurgical analysis with the goal of evaluating the viability of bringing the mine back into production.

Assays for a total of 37 holes have been received to date. These holes consist of 16,041.5 ft of drilling from two underground drill stations and include grades of up to 82.7 g/t gold, 24,981 g/t silver, 12.25% lead and 25.3% zinc; this intersection, in hole DTM-14-37, is the highest grade intersection received to date from the 2014 drill program. Highlights from drill holes DT14-15 thru DT14-37 are listed in the table below. Drill holes DT14-01 thru DT14-14 were disclosed in a news release dated October 2, 2014.

A complete list of assays from drill holes DT14-15 to DT14-37 is located in Appendix 1. Full details of all drill results including assays, hole location, dip and azimuth is available on the Company's website at http://www.westernpacificresources.com/i/pdf/DT14-01-37-AllSamples-Dec2014.pdf.

The project contains several structural blocks and there is insufficient data from the drilling to accurately calculate true intercept thickness at this time.

The drill program was focused in the 3400 area of the mine where drilling was being performed from the main PTH haulage tunnel. The long section diagram below shows the PTH tunnel and the interpreted orientation of the mineralization.



"It is very encouraging that drilling continues to return high-grade intercepts in multiple stacked zones," stated Michael Callahan, Western Pacific's President and CEO. "The S4 manto, which was the focus of some historic mining, is locally returning better grades than expected. The program was completed on schedule and within budget. As the last of our assays are received we look forward to assessing the results of the drill program as well as those from the metallurgical testing program which is now underway."

Significant base metal mineralization has been encountered in mantos S4, S6, S7 and S8 with assays returning combined base metals values up to 37.5%. For example, hole DT14-35 returned 1 ft of 8.7 g/t gold, 672 g/t silver, 15.5% copper and 25.3% zinc. Some holes indicate local potential for wider zones where drilling returned base metal and/or precious metal mineralization over several feet. An example of this can be seen in hole DT14-28, which returned 12 ft averaging 1.51 g/t gold, 259 g/t silver, 2.53% copper and 5.42% zinc.

The spread of values between the various mantos confirms the layer-cake stacking of the base metal manto mineralization within the sedimentary stratigraphic sequences. This provides for additional exploration that goes beyond the scope of the current drill program and would potentially be targeted in the future.

High-grade precious metal mineralization is also showing a different occurrence than within the strictly manto-style base metal mineralization as previously believed. On-going multi-element geochemical analysis shows that there is a strong association between silver, gold and tellurium, and not necessarily with the base metals lead, zinc, arsenic and antimony. This suggests that precious metals may be a separate mineralizing event and that potentially economic gold and silver mineralization is hosted by gold and silver tellurides.

The drill program has encountered an additional previously unknown manto, S8, which lies approximately 60 ft below the S7 manto. Drilling has shown that, like S7, it occurs within a sedimentary unit, the Lower Carbonate and Quartzite (LCAQ) of the Callville Formation, rather than at a distinct contact between two different units like S4, which occurs adjacent to the contact between the Lower Dark Lentil (LDL) and the Middle Quartzite-Big Sandy Zone (MQ-BSZ). When S8 is encountered it is well mineralized and up to 10 ft thick, though mineralization is not as consistent as S4 or S7. Deeper drilling, for example in drill hole DT14-21, has revealed hydrothermal breccias and associated alteration that hosts potentially economic precious metal and base metal mineralization. This alteration suite is interpreted to be associated with peripheral porphyry-style mineralization.

The section map below illustrates the location of the mantos in relation to the drill stations. The close proximity between these provides the benefit of multiple intercepts in the structures, resulting in a significant amount of data by drilling relatively short holes.





To date results from 37 holes totaling 16,041.5 ft of drilling have been received. Results from the completed drill program will allow the Company to better evaluate the strategy for putting the mine back into production.
