Spearmint buys gold prospect in southern BC

Spearmint Resources (CSE:SPMT) announced today that it has acquired the 'Hammernose' gold prospect consisting of 5,140 acres directly bordering the strategic alliance between Westhaven Resources and Sable Resource in the Spences Bridge gold belt, which is located in Southern British Columbia, Canada.

According to Spearmint, Spences Bridge is a 200-kilometre-long by 30-kilometre-wide emerging low-sulphidation epithermal gold belt that is believed to be highly prospective and underexplored.

In a press release, the Vancouver-based miner explained that back in October, Westhaven released high-grade drill results at its Shovelnose project intersecting 1.65 metres of 175 grams per tonne gold and 249 g/t silver, and recognition of visible gold in five drill holes.

“We are inspired by the recent success of Westhaven resources Inc.'s high-grade drill results in the Spences Bridge gold belt and are pleased to add the Hammernose prospect to Spearmints portfolio of projects,” James Nelson, President of Spearmint, said in the media brief.

Nelson said that this new project consolidates the company’s gold portfolio, which includes properties bordering GT Gold in BC’s golden triangle.
