BRITISH COLUMBIA – Vancouver-based Westhaven Ventures has completed 2,639 metres of diamond drilling in seven holes at the Shovelnose gold-silver property about 30 km south of Merritt. Highlights from hole SN18-03 include 28.7 metres at 2.6 g/t gold, including 17.7 metres at 3.9 g/t which in turn includes 3.7 metres at 6.3 g/t and 2.9 metres at 9.7 g/t.

This hole was a follow-up to last year’s discovery of the South zone where two holes cut an auriferous silicified zone. A year ago hole SN17-06 returned 85 metres at 0.52 g/t gold.

Westhaven holds about 30,000 hectares in the Spences Bridge gold belt, from Lillooet to Princeton, B.C. From north to south, the most promising properties are Skoonka, Prospect Valley and Shovelnose.
