Vancouver, B.C. / ACCESSWIRE / June 12, 2014 / Westhaven Ventures Inc. (TSX-V:WHN) is pleased to announce that ground geophysics has commenced on its Ben property, located midway between the Mount Polley and Gibraltar Mines, approximately 50 km north of Williams Lake, B.C.
The purpose of the survey is to follow up on last fall’s drill campaign that confirmed both anomalous nickel and gold mineralization. Hole BN13-03 intersected 70.6 metres grading 0.31% Nickel (Ni) and 0.012% Cobalt (Co) from bedrock surface to 87 metres depth and hole BN13-02 intersected 15.0 metres grading 0.18% Ni from surface to 19.0 metres depth. Hole BN13-02 intersected two intervals containing gold, including 1.5 metres grading 0.59 g/t Gold (Au) and 2.8 metres grading 0.57 g/t Au.
The IP (Induced Polarization) and magnetic survey will also evaluate the eastern part of the property where geologists have traced a broad zone of alteration and geochemical anomalies that can be traced over a distance in excess of 10 kilometres. Prospecting conducted earlier this year uncovered highly serpentinized ultramafic rocks that returned values of 0.20%, 0.21% and 0.22% Nickel. Gren Thomas, President & CEO, of Westhaven states, “Last year’s reconnaissance IP program is what led us to drill 70 metres of 0.31% nickel. We are confident that IP and magnetic surveys are going to continue to be instrumental in the delineation of drill targets moving forward.”
