The Spences Bridge Gold Belt (SBGB)
Westhaven owns a 100% interest in over 35,000 hectares within the prospective SBGB, which is situated within a geological setting similar to those which host other significant epithermal systems. It is close to existing transportation and infrastructure allowing for cost-effective exploration. The SBGB is a 110 kilometre northwest-trending belt of intermediate to felsic volcanic rocks dominated by the Cretaceous Spences Bridge group. Westhaven has been working on the SBGB since 2011 and believes these relatively underexplored volcanic rocks are highly prospective for epithermal style gold mineralization.
