Vancouver, BC / ACCESSWIRE / June 5, 2014 / Westhaven Ventures Inc. (TSX-V:WHN) is pleased to announce that the inaugural drill program has commenced on its Mona property, located approximately 5 kilometres east of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.
The high priority target was delineated from an airborne geophysical survey conducted on the property that identified a north-south trending linear magnetic high related to the Hay-Duck intrusive and six significant conductors. Three of the six conductors returned significant grab sample results indicating the presence of gold (5.1 g/t Au) and nickel (0.17% Ni). A ground geophysical survey was conducted over one of the conductors defining a shallowly east-dipping body with a coincident magnetic high response.
The Mona Property
The Mona property, located to the east of the Yellowknife Greenstone Belt, consists of two contiguous mineral claims (~ 4,390 acres) situated within a predominantly metasedimentary package cut by a large mafic sill. The property contains rocks that are prospective for nickel-copper and gold. Prior reports have found there is evidence of nickel-copper mineralization in mafic to ultramafic rocks that share characteristics to the Raglan Nickel Belt in northern Quebec and the Voisey’s Bay nickel deposit in Labrador.
