Thursday, Jan 10, 2013

VANCOUVER, Jan. 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Westhaven Ventures Inc. (TSXV: WHN) is pleased to report drill results from its Shovelnose gold property, located within the prospective Spences Bridge Gold Belt (SBGB), approximately 30 km south of Merritt, British Columbia. The drill program consisted of 5 holes, totaling 778 metres (2,552 feet) of diamond drilling. Subsequently, the Company has staked an additional 1,272 hectares, bringing the total Shovelnose land package to 17,684 hectares (176.84 km²).

Gren Thomas, Westhaven's President & CEO, stated, "The discovery of a wide zone of auriferous silicification in the Spences Bridge Gold Belt, which contains numerous small, high grade epithermal showings, is very encouraging. Management feels that the zone tested is high in the system and that we are close to finding higher grade sections within the area. We look forward to a very active exploration season on this very well located project just off the Coquihalla Highway."

2013 Field Program

The main focus of the 2013 exploration program will be to follow up on the Tower Zone mineralization and determine the size and grade potential of the precious metal horizon.  This will include geological mapping, geochemistry, geophysics and diamond drilling. Other targets on the property will be examined to determine the extents of the alteration and gold mineralization.
