A 244-line kilometer ground magnetic survey will be carried out by Scott Geophysics of Vancouver over the Bonanza target, an area of Prospect Valley that spans 12 square kilometers. Past drilling in 2001-2002 at Bonanza returned gold intercepts that included 45.7 meters (45.7m) of 1.57 grams per ton gold (1.57 g/t Au), including 4.6m of 4.38 g/t Au and 8.9m of 2.03 g/t Au.
The company noted that the goals of the current survey are twofold. One is to extend the Discovery zone to the south, and the other is to better define potential structural trends. Westhaven believes that Bonanza, Discovery and the Northeast Extension may all be part of a multikilometer-scale fault system that extends across its Prospect Valley acreage.
The Canadian explorer will use the data generated from the geophysics survey to define targets for future diamond drilling.
