Vancouver, B.C. - October 16, 2014 - Westhaven Ventures Inc. (TSX-V:WHN) reports that drilling has commenced on its 15,322 hectare BEN property, located approximately 50 kilometres north of Williams Lake, B.C.
A recently completed 122 line kilometre ground magnetic survey identified multiple drill targets related to mineralization discovered in the first two drill campaigns; including drill hole BN13-03 that intersected 70.6m of 0.31% nickel and 0.012% cobaltstarting from bedrock surface and hole BN14-12 that intersected 86m of 0.18%nickel and 0.010% cobalt and ended in mineralization. The ground magnetic surveys expanded the magnetic targets associated with drill holes that contain nickel mineralization in the Skelton Creek, Crossroad and Ring zones. Data from previous drill programs has indicated that higher nickel grades are associated with higher magnetic susceptibility readings.
Approximately 800 metres of diamond drilling will test newly discovered ground magnetic anomalies within the vicinity of drill hole BN13-03 and drill hole BN14-12. Four targets have been selected for immediate drill testing with the intent of finding near surface nickel mineralization.
