WKLN Pyramid Property Sampling Returns Significant Gold and Silver Values

CARSON CITY, NV--(Marketwired - Jun 2, 2015) - Walker Lane Exploration, Inc. (OTC PINK: WKLN) (formerly, Goldspan Resources, Inc.) is pleased to announce that surface geochemical sampling from its wholly owned Pyramid Property has returned significant gold and silver values from its Pyramid 1-10 claims in the historic Pyramid Mining District, Nevada. Twelve surface rock samples were collected from the northeast portion of the claimblock and were found to contain from 0.068 to 2.46 ppm gold (0.0002 to 0.072 ounce per ton Au) and 2.8 to 163.0 ppm silver (0.08 to 4.8 ounce per ton Ag) as reported by ALS-Chemex Labs of Reno, Nevada. The twelve widely-spaced samples were from outcrops and historic prospects and confirm past sampling efforts. The results also indicate a new pediment target with samples at the margin of the pediment gravels running up to 2.46 ppm gold and 163.0 ppm silver. These higher grade samples were from previously un-sampled prospects bordering the northeast pediment.

"The results represent a confirmation of past sampling efforts and indicate a possible new pediment target of at least 3,000 feet of strike length," stated Steve Jones, President and CEO of WKLN. The prospects at the margin of pediment host quartz-sericite alteration of oxidized Tertiary Hartford Hill rhyolite tuff. Mineralization is thought related to narrow quartz veinletts within the oxidized and altered tuff. 

Future plans call for additional sampling along known mineralized structures and within the new pediment target. Sampling will be carried out within the next month.
