West Mining Corp. (CSE:WEST) (OTCQB:WESMF) has received final results from its 2022 soil sampling program at its Blue Cove Copper Project in Newfoundland.

The Blue Cove Copper Property is located at the head of Fortune Bay, in southeast Newfoundland and is host to significant copper occurrences in outcrop.

Several new targets have been identified by prospecting over the past two years and copper mineralization can be found locally throughout the claims.

The property covers a 5,800 hectare area, striking 21.5 kilometres adjacent to the Terrenceville fault structure.

Excellent infrastructure also exists in the area, including the nearby town of Terrenceville which hosts a deep seaport.

A total of 232 samples were collected from the Hilltop, Ryles Barisway, Yellow Cove and Blue Cove targets.

In addition, a ground magnetometer survey was completed on the Hilltop Target.

The results of the exploration work proved successful in defining geochemical targets of interest in all areas with the most compelling of these related to the Hilltop Target.

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 located in an area where a single 184 foot drill hole by prospectors utilizing a winkie drill intersected a 5 foot interval with individual samples grading up to 0.49% Cu, 2.0% Pb and 1.9% Zn historically.

Geochemical targets were also identified on the west side of the Ryles Barisway grid in the area of known copper mineralization.

Additional work is required to follow up on this target to better delineate the anomaly.

At the main Blue Cove showing, the difficult terrain in the area made it impossible to perform soil sampling in an effective manner, although samples in the general area of Blue Cove did highlight a zinc anomaly in the area.

Results and maps related to the results of the groundwork are available on the company’s website.

Nick Houghton, President and CEO, stated: “It is 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.”

The company’s main focus is its 100% owned, 9000-hectare Kena Project, comprised of the Kena, Daylight and Athabasca properties, located near Nelson, British Columbia.

The historic mines and known mineralized zones on these three properties are structurally controlled along a 20 kilometre strike as identified by strong geophysical signatures.

A recent NI43-101 resource estimate for Kena gave 561,900 oz Au indicated and 2,773,100 oz Au inferred at a cut off of 0.25 g/t Au contained within the Gold Mountain, Kena Gold and Daylight Zones.

The shares are trading at $0.07.
