Westhaven Gold Drills 23.03 Metres of 37.24 G/t Gold and 209.52 G/t Silver, Including 1.12 Metres of 294 G/t Gold and 2,110 G/t Silver at the FMN Zone, Shovelnose Gold Property



Vancouver, B.C. – April 6th, 2022 – Westhaven Gold Corp. (TSX.V: WHN)is pleased to announce drill results from its ongoing drill campaign at its 100% owned 17,623-hectare Shovelnose gold property.

Shovelnose is located within the prospective Spences Bridge Gold Belt (SBGB), which borders the Coquihalla Highway 30 kilometres south of Merritt, British Columbia.


Westhaven Gold management comments

“We are pleased to report the highest gold-silver intercept (857.64 gram-metres) ever drilled on the Shovelnose gold property, at the FMN Zone. Hole SN22-212 (23.03m of 37.24 g/t gold and 214.70 g/t silver) is over 2 kilometres from the heart of the South Zone resource.


“We now have multiple gold mineralized drill intercepts at the FMN zone over 500 metres of strike length that begin at bedrock surface in areas with minimal overburden. We believe the FMN zone has the potential to contribute significantly to the property wide precious metals inventory.


“It is not uncommon in enriched epithermal systems to discover multiple high-grade gold chutes and, given the strong nature of this system and low drill density in this area, we believe there is going to be more high-grade chutes discovered along this ~4-kilometre trend.


“In addition to the drill currently located at the FMN Zone, a second drill has been added at the Alpine Zone focused on following-up on Hole SNR21-55, which intersected 3.13 metres of 45.23 g/t gold and 195.64 g/t silver.


“Recent drilling at the Alpine Zone has encountered similar geology to what was encountered in SNR21-55, including intervals containing marcasite, adularia and ginguro.”
