West Mining

West Mining Projects

WEST MINING CORP. (“WEST”) is a mineral exploration company focused on acquiring and exploring advanced and prospective early-stage projects.

West is focused on its Kena gold projects in the Nelson Mining Division of south eastern British Columbia, its Spanish Mountain West and Junker gold projects located in northern British Columbia and its Kagoot cobalt project near Bathhurst, New Brunswick.

The Kena Project “Golden Arc”

The Kena Project is located in the Nelson area of the historic “Golden Arc” Multiple historic gold producing mines and known gold & copper – gold zones provide exceptional potential for additional discoveries and expansion of the known zones.

Kena Project Targets

Previous exploration work has identified 8 large gold bearing areas to target with drilling:

  • Starlight-North Star-Great Eastern Zones.
  • Gold Mountain Zone – 3,000 X 1,400 gold porphyry.
  • Kena Gold Zone
  • South Gold Zone
  • Kena Porphyry Copper Zone
  • Cat – Shaft
  • Silver King Gold Corridor- 1,000 m x 600 m wide
  • New Showings – 8 to 15 km south of Gold Mountain

Kena Project Logistics

Southern, BC

  • 21,769 acres
  • • 10 km by highway from the City of Nelson
  • • Nearby rail and power
  • • Local work force
  • • Local service and supply companies
  • • Teck Resources Trail Smelter lies 45 minutes southwest by paved highway
  • • BC’s second largest gold camp of Rossland in the
  • “The Golden Arc”, the birthplace of Cominco

Kena Project Highlights

  • Multiple bonanza grade gold zones in a world class geological setting.
  • Advanced project with bulk tonnage historical* resource of just over 480,000 ounces of gold @ ~1 g/t (with cut off grade of 0.70 g/t Au).
  • District scale trend extending 18 kilometers of strike-length and open to the northwest, southeast and down-dip.
  • Recently consolidated into large land package.
  • Large untested copper – gold porphyry targets on southern end of the property.

Kena & Daylight Mineral Resources

• The Kena Project area has produced over 90 intersectionsin drill core that are greater than 5.0 g/t Au, over greater than 2.0 m intervals.

37,123.92 meters diamond drilling in 156 bore holes

• Historical intercepts include bonanza grades:

• 48.77 – 50.00m an intercept of 1.23m of 240.07 g/t Au

• 204 – 206 meters an intercept of 2.00m of 172.10 g/t Au

53.89 – 54.89 meter an intercept of 1.00m of 50.80 g/t Au

Spanish Mountain Property

Consisting of 4 prospective mineral claims with over 1,000 hectares in the Spanish Mountain Gold Camp. Portions of the property included ground under the GAP, CEDAR CREEK and Jun 11 showings.
Locally, cherts interbedded with fine grained andesitic tuffs and argillites host pyrite. In 1984, a pyrite-rich sample (6306) assayed 1.08 grams per tonne gold (ARIS 12778) and in close proximity former pits, trenches and a caved adit expose a 6- metre wide quartz vein in argillites.
Mineralization consists of arsenopyrite. In 1984, samples assayed from 0.5 to 0.7 gram per tonne gold and 10 to 20 grams per tonne silver (ARIS12778). In 2003, samples yielded up to 0.245 gram per tonne gold and 0.103 per cent copper (Assessment Report 27245).
Similar mineralization is also reported in former pits on the south side of Cedar Creek. In 1984, samples assayed up to 0.54 gram per tonne gold and 0.65 per cent arsenic (ARIS 12778). *NON-43-101 Historic Results Not to be relied upon

Junker Property

The Junker Property is located in British Columbia’s Toodoggone district known as the “Golden Horseshoe” part of the world-renowned Golden Triangle in the Omineca/Liard mining division. The property area is underlain by lower to middle Jurassic marine sedimentary and volcanic rock of the Hazelton group geology and was originally identified in 1995 by the British Columbia Geological Survey’s Regional Geochemical Survey (RGS), in which a silt sample from the creek draining the basin in the central part of the Junker claim recorded 175 parts per billion gold (Au).
In 2004 an exploration program consisting of field sampling program has the following results:

  • Pyritic quartz vein subcrop yielded 0.1 per cent copper and 1.08 grams per tonne gold (sample 151405, ARIS 27637).
  • A dacitic subcrop sample containing thin quartz stringers with pyrite yielded 0.2 per cent lead and 8.64 grams per tonne silver (sample 151401, ARIS 27637). This sample was located about 500 metres east of sample 151405.
  • Several other float samples on the Junkers property in 2004 assayed between 1 and 4.1 grams per tonne gold (ARIS 27637).
