On October 2, 2018, Westhaven released high-grade drill results at its Shovelnose project intersecting 1.65m of 175 g/t gold (Au) and 249 g/t silver (Ag), and recognition of visible gold in five drill holes. On Oct. 31, 2018, Westhaven reported high-grade drill results of 46.20m of 8.95 g/t gold (Au) and 65.47 g/t silver (Ag), including 5.00m of 14.70 g/t gold (Au) and 215.00 g/t silver (Ag) at Shovelnose.

According to Sable Resources Ltd. (News release Oct. 16, 2018), the SBGB is a 200-kilometre-long-by-30-kilometre-wide emerging low-sulphidation epithermal gold belt that is believed to be highly prospective and underexplored. Interpreted to be a failed cretaceous rift basin, Sable believes the belt is prospective for Fruta del Norte style high-grade epithermal mineralization. It is close to major transportation routes 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.
