Westhaven Gold management comments

“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.

“The South Zone resource drilling is complete and drilling is now focused on recently identified exploration targets.”

Gareth Thomas, President & CEO of Westhaven Gold


 “Recent drilling continues to intersect mineralization between vein zones at the South Zone. Hole SNR21-35 intersected a shallow intercept of significant gold in a sparsely veined interval of rhyolite tuff situated between Vein Zones 1 and 2.

“The presence of such mineralization adds to the potential for a near-surface bulk-tonnage resource at South Zone.  Renewed drilling along strike to the northwest at the FMN target is testing for similar near-surface vein-hosted mineralization.”

Peter Fischl, Exploration Manager, Westhaven Gold


Drilling Update:

Two drills are currently conducting exploration drilling at the FMN Zone and CSAMT (Controlled-source Audio-frequency Magnetotellurics) targets. The FMN Zone is initially being drilled along a series of sections spaced 50 m apart over a strike length of 250m as a follow-up to holes SN20-158, SN21-161 (15.97m of 9.15 g/t Au and 27.43 g/t Ag) and SN21-167.  Drilling will be expanded eastward towards holes SN20-139 (5.50m of 4.58 g/t Au and 267.35 g/t Ag) and SN20-145 to test for the continuity of mineralization over strike-lengths similar to that seen at South Zone.
