Vancouver, B.C. - January 6, 2015 - Westhaven Ventures Inc. (TSX-V:WHN) reports it has completed a high resolution airborne magnetic survey on its 9,503 hectare Ben South property, located approximately 23 kilometres northeast of Williams Lake, B.C. and 20 kilometres south of its 15,322 hectare Ben property.
The purpose of the high resolution aeromagnetic survey was to help identify 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 covering the entire property. The survey outlined numerous magnetic anomalies and a subsequent prospecting program was initiated.
The prospecting program unearthed several new nickeliferous outcrops and five of the seven surface rock samples assayed 0.27% Nickel (Ni), 0.26% Ni, 0.22% Ni, 0.22%Ni, and 0.21% Ni. This strengthens management's belief that magnetic high anomalies are closely associated with nickeliferous serpentinite, as is the case on the BEN property to the north.
