Westhaven Drills 6.20 Metres of 73.51 g/t Gold and 92.37 g/t Silver Within 12.00 Metres of 39.42 g/t Gold and 51.81 g/t Silver at the Franz Zone; Shovelnose Gold Property
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 17, 2023 -- Westhaven Gold Corp. (TSX-V:WHN) is pleased to announce drill results from its 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 is reporting assays for 22 holes from its drill campaign at Shovelnose. An additional 10 holes are in the lab pending assays.
Gareth Thomas, President & CEO, comments: “We have now drilled greater than 450 gram-metre gold intercepts on three separate zones at Shovelnose gold property. This latest intercept at Franz (473 gram-metres gold), is 1km northwest from the hole at the FMN zone where we drilled the highest gold-silver intercept ever on the property at 857 gram-metres gold, and 2.3km from the 1.1-million-ounce gold equivalent resource at South Zone. The recent Franz drilling is significant because the mineralization starts at surface, is easily accessible, and bonanza grade. Hole SN22-333 (12.00m of 39.42 g/t Au) was collared 50m from SN20-101 (7.78m of 14.84 g/t Au) which was the best hole drilled at Franz until now. Drilling at the Franz will resume shortly with the view of stepping out to the northwest to test for the extension of this high-grade intercept."
