Epithermal Expert, Dr. Jeffrey Hedenquist, Examined Westhaven’s Shovelnose Gold Project

Vancouver, B.C. – June 13, 2017 – Westhaven Ventures Inc. (TSX-V:WHN) is pleased to announce that Dr. Jeffrey Hedenquist, an independent consultant and one of the world's leading experts on epithermal gold systems, recently visited Westhaven's 100% controlled Shovelnose gold property, located within the prospective Spences Bridge Gold Belt (SBGB), approximately 30 km south of Merritt, British Columbia.

Dr. Hedenquist stated that, “The Shovelnose property features an epithermal vein system at a shallow level of erosion that is locally anomalous in precious metals, commonly associated with colloform-banded quartz veinlets.  Most drilling has tested depths of only 100-150 metres, meaning that potential remains deeper in structurally controlled feeder zones, as discussed in my report.”   

The results of Dr. Hedenquist's technical review are summarized below or for the full report please go to the website: http://westhavenventures.com/projects/shovelnose-gold/details/

Current Work

Approximately 50 line kilometres of ground magnetics was just completed. The purpose of this program is to increase the resolution of the survey to 50-m line spacing to more clearly indicate favorable structures at the Tower, MIK and Alpine zones where drilling has traced a broad zone of near surface, low grade gold-silver mineralization. Additionally, an assessment of clay mineralogy is underway to determine paleotemperatures to help vector towards potentially higher grade mineralized conduits lateral or deeper to the present area of drilling. Results of both these programs will be available shortly.
