Westhaven Gold Corp. (WHN) has reported assays from 17 holes at its Shovelnose gold property in British Columbia.

Shovelnose covers over 17,600 hectares in the Spences Bridge Gold Belt in BC. Westhaven has completed 28,400 metres of diamond drilling at the property to date in its ongoing drill campaign.

Recent drilling included near-surface results of 0.49 g/t gold over 265 metres and 0.71 g/t gold over 118 metres.

Drilling also intersected significant grades of silver in addition to the gold reported above.

Gareth Thomas, president and CEO of Westhaven, commented on the results.

“These recent drill results at the South Zone confirm that along with multiple high-grade gold-silver veins, there are also significant widths of disseminated gold-silver,” he said.

“The presence of such mineralization adds to the potential for a bulk-tonnage resource at South Zone,” added Westhaven exploration manager Peter Fischl.

Much of the resource drilling is now complete at the South Zone, allowing crews to focus on follow-up testing.

Drilling was halted due to wildfires and an evacuation order in the area. However, as of September 3, the evacuation order was downgraded to an evacuation alert.

Field crews and drill contractors are now mobilized on-site, and drilling is expected to resume shortly.

“Once drilling resumes,” said Mr. Thomas, “the focus will be on recent vein intercepts northwest of the South Zone.”

“We will also be focusing on the FMN Zone,” he added, “approximately 2.5 kilometres northwest of the South Zone, where assays are also pending.”

Westhaven is a gold-focused exploration company advancing a high-grade discovery on the Shovelnose project in Canada’s newest gold district.

Westhaven Gold Corp. (WHN) opened trading at $0.54 per share.
