Rockhaven Resources Ltd. is pleased to announce a major expansion of its 100%-owned and road-accessible Klaza property, located in the Dawson Range Gold Belt of southern Yukon. The land acquisition is facilitated through four separate agreements that collectively add 868 contiguous mineral claims to the property.
The Klaza property hosts a recently announced maiden inferred resource estimate that includes 7,040,000 tonnes containing 948,348 oz gold and 21,780,313 oz silver at an average grade of 4.19 g/t gold and 96.23 g/t silver using a 1.5 g/t gold cut-off (see Klaza Property Amended Technical Report dated June 19, 2015.) A fully funded 15,000 m diamond drill program is currently underway and is designed to expand the resource.
"These agreements represent a major milestone because they allow Rockhaven to acquire most of the prospective land in the Mount Nansen Gold Belt without diverting cash away from exploration," stated Matt Turner, CEO of Rockhaven Resources. "Securing a much larger land position in the district is important for both continued exploration and logistical purposes, as Rockhaven advances the Klaza deposit toward development."
