Westhaven Gold Corp. (TSXV: WHN) announced today the results from its ongoing drill program at its 100%-owned Shovelnose gold property in British Columbia. Assay reports highlighted an intersect of 1.09 g/t gold and 2.43 g/t silver over 85.45 metres, including 10.80 g/t gold and 24.80 g/t silver over 3.14 metres.
The results come from the 10 drill holes, while additional 18 holes are still pending. Shovelnose is located within the so-called Spences Bridge Gold Belt, which borders the Coquihalla Highway 30 kilometres south of Merritt.
Highlights of the assays include:
- SNR21-35: 1.09 g/t gold, 2.43 g/t silver over 85.45 metres
- including 10.80 g/t gold, 24.80 g/t silver over 3.14 metres
- SNR21-35: 0.58 g/t gold, 1.84 g/t silver over 45.92 metres
- including 1.26 g/t gold, 2.91 g/t silver over 15.00 metres
“These drill results at the South Zone once again confirm that we are dealing with a robust gold-silver system that continues to expand with drilling,” said Westhaven Gold CEO Gareth Thomas. “The South Zone resource drilling is complete and drilling is now focused on recently identified exploration targets.”
The company also reported that two drills are currently conducting exploration drilling at the FMN Zone and CSAMT (Controlled-source Audio-frequency Magnetotellurics) targets. Drilling will also be expanded eastward “to test for the continuity of mineralization over strike-lengths” similar to South Zone’s.
Westhaven Gold last traded at $0.40 on the TSX Venture.
