West Mining Corp. (WEST) has received the final result for its 2022 soil sampling program from it’s Blue Cove Copper Project.

A total of 232 samples were collected over four separate target areas on the project.

These areas include the Ryles Barisway, Yellow Cove, Blue Cove, and Hilltop targets. Thanks to the results from exploration, geochemical targets of interest were defined in all areas with the most compelling of these related to Hilltop

The team found a defining multi-element copper, zinc, and silver anomaly correlating directly with a geological contact based on magnetic data was defined across the length of the survey area. This geochemical / geophysical target is in an area where a single 56 metre drill hole by prospectors utilizing a winkie drill intersected a 1.5 metre interval with individual samples grading up to 0.49 per cent Cu, 2.0 per cent Pb and 1.9 per cent Zn historically.

Geochemical targets were also identified on the west side of the Ryles Barisway grid in the area of known copper mineralization. To better delineate this anomaly, the company is planning additional work to follow up on this target.

West Mining’s President and CEO, Nicholas Houghton said it was very encouraging to see the final soil sample results returned from the lab with defining anomalous outcrops along the expanse of the Blue Cove project.

“The area has proven its worth to the company as an exploration target and merits further delineation.”

West Mining Corp. (WEST) is a mineral exploration company acquiring and developing advanced and prospective early-stage exploration projects.  It is fully focused on its 100-per-cent-owned, 90 sq. km. Kena Project located in southeastern British Columbia.
