    West Mining Announces 2022 Exploration Program

    West Mining Corp. (“West” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the commencement of diamond drilling on its 100% owned Kena Gold-Copper project in southeastern British Columbia.  The over 9000 hectare Kena Project, consists of the Kena, Daylight, and Athabasca Properties which trend along a 20-kilometer-long favorable mineralized belt.

    The Kena Property hosts several gold mineralized zones, most notably the Kena Gold and Gold Mountain Zones included in the recent resource estimate hosting 2.77 million ounces of gold inferred and 0.56 million ounces of gold indicated at 0.25 g/t cutoff (see News Release dated May 11, 2021). 3D modeling and imagery have identified drill targets for expansion to the north and northwest of the open-ended gold resource in the Gold Mountain Zone. Gold in the resource area consists of high-grade shoots surrounded by broad envelopes of disseminated gold mineralization (see News Release dated March 16, 2022). The initial 2022 diamond drilling will consist of 10 drill holes in this expansion location.

    “We are pleased to be commencing our drill program on the Kena Project. Along with anticipated results from the fully funded 2022 program and taking in the fact that the successful 2021 season results are still to be assimilated into the resource calculations, the Company is well-positioned to expand upon the previously defined gold resource. Our experienced geological and drilling crews give us a strong probability for success,” states Nicholas Houghton, CEO of West Mining Corporation.

    Coincident with the ongoing diamond drilling program, metallurgical test work is currently being completed by Bureau Veritas Commodities Canada Ltd, Metallurgical Division with results anticipated soon.
