Goldhaven commences follow-up exploration at Smoke Mountain, British Columbia

Goldhaven Resources Corp. [GOH-CSE; GHVNF-OTCQB; 4QS-FSE] has prioritized a follow-up campaign, including soil grid extensions at newly identified target areas as well as prospecting and mapping of extensive newly acquired contiguous land positions in the belt. Given preliminary results from its summer work program at Smoke Mountain, British Columbia, VTEM (versatile time-domain electromagnetic) and lidar airborne surveys for the newly staked ground have also been scheduled for completion in October, 2022.

Goldhaven CEO, Justin Canivet, commented: “Our exploration results at Smoke Mountain this summer have prompted a high-priority follow-up field program. The objective of the campaign is to obtain geologically based vectors to porphyry and epithermal targets on this highly prospective and exciting property. Lab results and airborne survey interpretation from our summer program are expected in the coming weeks and we look forward to further leveraging these data and adding shareholder value.”

Goldhaven has re-engaged Dahrouge Geological Consulting Ltd. to complete a comprehensive follow-up exploration program at Smoke Mountain. This program is focused on extending soil sampling grids at priority target areas defined in the recently completed 2022 summer program. Furthermore, the fieldwork will focus on prospecting and mapping newly staked contiguous land positions. Detailed geological mapping along with the soil geochemical work will improve the interpretation of the geophysical data sets and constrain target locations.

Goldhaven has engaged Geotech Ltd. to conduct helicopter-borne VTEM and magnetic geophysical surveys for the purpose of investigating the mineral potential over the extensive contiguous land position at Smoke Mountain. The proposed survey is approximately 721 line-km over one block with a planned start date of late October. The survey will take five to seven days to complete with the intention of targeting intermediate-sulphidation polymetallic vein systems.

Goldhaven management seeks to acquire a multiyear area-based exploration permit for drilling in Q2 2023. The extensive geological, geochemical and geophysical campaigns from 2022 are yielding excellent preliminary porphyry and epithermal-style targets. Goldhaven is planning to carefully evaluate all of the obtained data during late 2022 and early 2023, with the objective of defining drill targets for testing going forward.

Goldhaven’s Smoke Mountain land position was recently doubled from 4,190 hectares to 8,645 hectares based on promising preliminary results from geological, geochemical and geophysical surveys conducted during the 2022 Smoke Mountain summer exploration program. The resulting large, contiguous land position defines a commanding land position in an emerging British Columbia porphyry-epithermal belt. Copper, gold and silver mineralization is extensive in the region with several promising new discoveries and extensions to mineralization.

The Smoke Mountain property is road accessible from Houston via a series of gravel forest service roads off Highway 16.
