Westhaven hits high-grade gold at multiple zones at Shovelnose

Kitco News

Westhaven Gold released drill results today highlighting hits of 15.97 metres of 9.15 g/t gold and 27.43 g/t silver at FMzone and 79.00 metres of 2.73 g/t gold and 15.78 g/t silver at South Zone.

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

Gareth Thomas, President & CEO of Westhaven Gold, states: “With this significant high-grade gold-silver drill intercept at the FMN Zone, our theory that more high-grade centres occur along this major NW-SE structure has proven correct. Hole SN21-161 (15.97m of 9.15 g/t Au and 27.43 g/t Ag) is approximately 700m away from the Franz Zone discovery drill hole SN20-101 (7.78m of 14.84 g/t Au and 40.68 g/t Ag). Our Exploration Manager, Peter Fischl talked about a “kink” in the structure and its importance for potential mineralization along key structures exhibiting strike-slip movement. Our team is gaining a better understanding of the structural controls on the Shovelnose Property which is important as we focus the majority of the fully funded 2021 drilling on exploration targets on this large and underexplored property. In addition, drilling in the South Zone, which is geared towards the completion of an inaugural maiden resource estimate by years-end, continues to intersect significant widths of high-grade gold-silver mineralization and demonstrate continuity of veins (SNR21-02: 79.00m of 2.73 g/t gold and 15.78 g/t silver).”
