For the first time in 2019, we revisit Westhaven Ventures Inc. (TSX-Venture:WHN), for the rumblings it has created by its recent work.
The Vancouver-based company announced Wednesday it completed airborne geophysics across its 2,784-hectare Skoonka and 6,167-hectare Skoonka North gold properties, located within the prospective Spences Bridge Gold Belt
This is a continuation of a string of events, including a November helicopter flight which produced a high resolution aeromagnetic survey over both properties covering a combined 8,951 hectares. The survey block was flown in a systematic low-level grid pattern at 75-metre line spacing over the Skoonka property and 100-metre line spacing over the Skoonka North property for a total of 1,186 line kilometres.
Westhaven owns a 100%-interest in four properties covering over 35,000 hectares within the prospective SBGB, which is situated within a geological setting like those which host other significant epithermal gold-silver systems, close to major routes and infrastructure allowing for cost-effective exploration.
Shares in Westhaven warmed to the prospects, gaining 10 cents Wednesday, or 8.9%, to $1.23, on 114,000 shares.
