Westhaven Gold management comments

“Though still early days at the FMN, 2021 exploration drilling has successfully outlined a 200m corridor of higher-grade zones of gold and silver mineralization starting from hole SN21-158 (3.46m of 9.46 g/t Au and 151.82 g/t Ag) to hole SN21-167 (4.18m of 5.26 g/t Au and 9.27 g/t Ag).

“Our technical team is getting a better handle on targeting the elevation range of best mineralization, which bodes well for future significant drill intercepts at FMN.

“The recent South Zone results (76.33m of 2.93 g/t Au and 11.30 g/t Ag) help validate the high-grade nature of this project as we continue to drill outside of this main structure looking for additional zones of gold and silver mineralization. A 3rd drill rig is on site testing these targets now.”

Gareth Thomas, President & CEO of Westhaven Gold.


“Recent resource definition drilling at South Zone targeting Vein Zones 1 and 2 continues to intersect significant grades and widths in both zones (SNR21-05 to SNR21-08).

“Drilling at FMN has confirmed that stronger mineralization in Vein Zone 1 occurs at 1,200m to 1,300m elevation, similar to that seen at South Zone.

“Holes SN21-158, SN21-161, SN21-163 and SN21-167 encountered moderate to strong gold mineralization centred at 1205m in SN21-163, 1240m in SN21-161, 1280m in SN21-167, and 1320m in SN21-158.

“Weaker mineralization was encountered in a deeper test in hole SN21-162, which intersected Vein Zone 1 at 1120-1190m elevation. Follow-up drilling at FMN will focus on targeting shallower portions of Vein Zone 1 above 1200m elevation.”
