Westhaven Ventures Inc announced additional drill results from its ongoing program at its 15,542 hectare Shovelnose gold property. Shovelnose is located within the prospective Spences Bridge Gold Belt, which borders the Coquihalla Highway 30 kilometres south of Merritt, British Columbia. Mr Gareth Thomas President and CEO of Westhaven stated the ongoing, fully financed drill program continues to successfully intersect high-grade gold and, importantly, has extended the strike length of the South Zone vein system by 170 metres to 840 metres. The property wide exploration initiative that began in May has generated new areas of interest and we are in the process of target delineation with a view to drilling these new areas in the near term.

Highlights of the most recent results include:
• Extended Vein Zone 1 by 170 metres (m) to a total strike length of 840m.
• Hole SN19-19 returned 2.16m of 100.50 g/t gold (Au) and 133.44 g/t silver (Ag) Vein Zone 1; and 5.00m of 7.61 g/t Au and 34.50 g/t Ag in Vein Zone 2.
Hole SN19-21 returned 12.40m of 5.74 g/t Au and 44.64 g/t Ag Vein Zone 1.
High grade gold mineralization intersected along strike supporting continuity of veining in the northwest portion of the South Zone.
• The Company has drilled 34 holes over 14,506m of a planned 20,000m in the current drill program. Assays will be release regularly over the coming weeks and months.
