Article content

Vancouver, British Columbia, December 1, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — West Mining Corp. (“West” or “Company”) ( CSE : West) (OTC : WESMF) We are pleased to inform you that we have received the analysis results and summary report from. Coast Mountain Geological Limited .. (CMG) Exploration work completed by our 100% owned Spanish Mountain West Gold Project in South Central British Columbia. The program has succeeded in identifying multiple elements and multi-station soil anomalies of the major Pathfinder elements associated with gold mineralization in nearby Spanish mountain deposits.

The 1062 hectares of Spain’s Mountain West property is located within the Kessner terrain, primarily under the Nicola Group’s volcanic and sedimentary rock packages. The mineralization of Spanish mountain deposits is characterized by finely dispersed gold associated with pyrite in argillite and multi-metal gold veins hosted by the Nikola volcanic sequence.

The CMG program has identified shallow, low-grade Pathfinder elements such as arsenic, mercury, and bismuth. But more importantly, base metals such as lead, zinc, copper +/- arsenic and silver have been identified in the soil throughout the property, which is all known indicators of gold in the region.

“We are very pleased with the results of the field program and the work done by the CMG on the project. We will continue to expand these favorable results with follow-up geophysics and trenching.” Said Nicholas Houghton, President and Chief Executive Officer of West Mining.

A total of 980 soil samples were collected from three separate grid areas: Oscar North, Spanish Lake and southwestern Spain.

NS Oscar North grid Shows the elevated base metal Cu-Pb-Zn and the shallow indicator element As. Most notable on this grid is the location of the single station multi-element soil in the center of the claim, showing elevated As-Bi-Pb-Zn, just north of the Oscar Gold display. It is also worth noting that the Pb-Zn results are rising across the grid. With the discovery of Oscar Gold just south, Skygold Ventures (BC ARIS # 30144) is 150 meters long, including a corresponding pyrite black argillite / phyllite rock sample, analyzing Au at up to 2.11 ppm. I explained the outline of soil abnormality in.

NS Spanish Lake
NS remove Designed to extend the adjacent Au-in-soil anomaly located west of the grid. A weak As-Ag-Au trend has been identified that extends 450 meters to the center of the grid. A single Au-As anomaly station in the upper northeast corner of this grid is near the structural inflection defined by the adjacent Garry. This station returned the highest gold value of the program.

NS Southwe of Spain NS grid Soil sampling clearly identified contact between Nicola basalt and young sedimentary rocks. Au-Ag-As values ​​appear to tend to exceed 2 km along this defined contact. In the center of the grid you will see a strong single station multi-element soil anomaly (As-Cu-Zn-Ag). It is surrounded by weak anomalous As-Au at adjacent stations, all of which occur near the subject’s geological contact. Follow-up work in this area is recommended due to the strong As-Au correlation found by the Eastern Bullion Gold and the presence of raised anomalies adjacent to the contact. In addition, there are multiple stations at about 1 g / t Ag in the southern part of the grid, with weak Au anomalies and moderate Cu-Zn anomalies around. A work performed by Bullion Gold Corp. (BC ARIS # 32720) in 2007, just east of South West Spain, showed a positive reaction of gold in soil with similar mapped contacts (including correlated arsenic). ).

The CMG recommends additional exploration of geochemically anomalous zones, such as surface geophysics and excavator trenching in areas of shallow topsoil. Geophysics targets the contact area between conductive argillite and the resistant Wacke sequence. This boundary, along with Au hosted by low resistivity black argillite, is considered to be an important area of ​​gold mineralization.

West Mining Corp.about

West Mining Corp. is a mineral exploration company that acquires and develops advanced and promising early stage exploration projects. Focusing on a 100% owned 9000 hectare Kena project near Nelson, British Columbia. The Kena project consists of three adjacent properties: Kena, Daylight and Athabaskan. Kena’s recent NI 43-101 stock estimates show 561,900 ounces of Au and 2,773,100 ounces of Au with a cutoff of 0.25 g / t Au in the Gold Mountain, Kena Gold, and Daylight Zones. .. The Kena Property hosts a large Kena Copper Zone, as well as the historic Euphrates River and Gold Cup gold and silver mines. Daylight properties include the historic past that has produced gold mines in Daylight, Starlight, Victoria, Irene, and Great Eastern. Along the north trend, there is the Athabaskan property with the historic Athabaskan gold mine. The historic mines and known mineralization zones of these three properties are structurally controlled along a 20km strike, as identified by strong geophysical features.
