Vancouver, B.C. - May 20, 2015 - Westhaven Ventures Inc. (TSX-V:WHN) is pleased to announce work has commenced on its wholly owned 9,503 hectare Ben South nickel property, located approximately 23 kilometres northeast of Williams Lake, B.C. and 20 kilometres south of its 15,322 hectare Ben nickel property.
Late in 2014, Westhaven flew a high resolution aeromagnetic survey in hopes of identifying magnetic serpentinite associated with nickel mineralization, as demonstrated on the Ben property to the north. A total of 529 line kilometers of magnetic data were flown encompassing the entire property. The survey outlined numerous magnetic anomalies and a subsequent prospecting program was initiated.
The 2014 prospecting program unearthed several new nickeliferous outcrops. Five of the seven surface rock samples chipped from available outcroppings assayed 0.27%nickel (Ni), 0.26% Ni, 0.22% Ni, 0.22% Ni, and 0.21% Ni, strengthening management’s belief that magnetic high anomalies are closely associated with nickeliferous serpentinite. The goal of the 2015 program is to identify additional nickel sulphide mineralization that will aid in delineating drill targets. The program will consist of prospecting, mapping and sampling.
A map detailing the locations of previous sampling showing nickel mineralized outcroppings can be found on Westhaven’s website at:
