Drilling in the first two vein zones continues to encounter high-grade gold.

Westhaven Ventures Inc. (WHN:TSX.V) announced in a news release that during its ongoing drill campaign at its Shovelnose project in British Columbia, it discovered a Third Vein zone containing high-grade gold and silver.

"With each new high-grade vein zone discovered, it increases the potential for substantial gold-silver resources to be defined at Shovelnose," President and CEO Gareth Thomas said in the release. "We continue to build on our understanding of these zones, the geologic model and the property in general."

The Third Vein zone is located below and northeast of the Second Vein zone, about 20–60 meters (20–60m) downsection. Highlight assays from the Third Vein zone include 7.11m of 9.42 grams per ton gold (9.42 g/t Au) and 69.36 g/t silver (Ag), including 1.2 of 36.8 g/t Au and 259 g/t Ag. "The presence of high-grade mineralization below 1100m elevation in the deeper Third Vein zone broadens the vertical range of such mineralization at South zone," Peter Fischl, exploration manager, said in the release.

Drilling in the First and Second Vein zones continued to hit high-grade gold.

From the First Vein zone, recent results were 9.5m of 4.21 g/t Au and 14.56 g/t Ag in hole SN19-15 and 9m of 1.33 g/t Au and 17.99 g/t Ag, including 5m of 4.37 g/t Au and 102.64 g/t Ag, in hole SN19-13.

The Second Vein zone returned 12.45m of 5.84 g/t Au and 2.11 g/t Ag in hole SN19-15 and 117m of 1.23 g/t Au and 3.58 g/t Ag, including 6m of 4.65 g/t Au and 4.03 g/t Ag, in hole SN19-12.
