Westhaven Gold Corp. (TSXV:WHN) has unveiled its plans for 2023 with preparations in place for drilling to commence shortly on the 17,623ha Shovelnose Gold Property.
Shovelnose is located within the prospective Spences Bridge Gold Belt (SBGB), which borders the Coquihalla Highway 30km south of Merritt, British Columbia.
“2022 was a milestone year for Westhaven. We completed a maiden resource at the South Zone, welcomed Franco-Nevada as a shareholder and drilled our highest-grade gold-silver intercept to date,” President and CEO, Gareth Thomas, said.
“Finding additional mineralized zones is the main objective for the company in 2023 as the vast majority of the 17,623ha Shovelnose Gold Property has had limited drilling.
“Our technical team has generated numerous targets outside of the Zone One Trend based on extensive data collected since the initial discovery with the belief this could lead to new discoveries on the property. These will be drill tested throughout the 2023 season commencing shortly.
“Over the course of the last decade, Westhaven has assembled the preeminent land position on the SBGB and we look forward to working all four of these properties in 2023.”
Exploration Plans for 2023 by Property
- Shovelnose – drill program to commence shortly.
- Skoonka – summer field programs with drilling in the fall.
- Skoonka North – spring field program.
- Prospect Valley – summer field programs.
2023 Drill Targets on Shovelnose
Westhaven will be focusing the majority of its 2023 drill budget on newly generated targets outside of the ~four km long Zone One Trend, host to mineralization previously identified at the South Zone, Alpine, Tower, FMN and Franz zones. Additional drilling is also needed in a gap between Tower and FMN.
