VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/30/14 -- Rockhaven Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: RK) ("Rockhaven") is pleased to announce that 4,150,000 amended warrants have been exercised for proceeds of $1,245,000. A total of 8,833,333 shares purchase warrants were amended on July 24, 2014 (see July 25, 2014 news release).
"The exercise of the amended warrants demonstrates tremendous confidence in the project," stated Matt Turner, CEO of Rockhaven Resources. "The additional funds will allow Rockhaven to expand the scope of the 2014 work program and complete a substantial amount of additional drilling on an extremely cost effective basis".
Expanded 2014 Program
Using the proceeds from the exercise of the amended warrants, Rockhaven will increase its current drill program from 12,000 m to 21,000 m and will activate a third diamond drill that is already on the Klaza property. Since early June 2014, 9,800 m of diamond drilling has been completed in 56 holes at the Klaza property. The drill program is focused on high-grade sections of the BRX and Klaza Zones. Results from the first 25, 2014 drill holes are very encouraging and are consistent with previous years' widely spaced drill and trench results (see news releases dated July 15, 22 and 29, 2014).
Drilling and trenching at the road-accessible Klaza property since 2010 has identified nine main mineralized structural zones and numerous subsidiary structures within a 2,000 by 4,000 m corridor. Individually, the main zones range from 1 to 75 m in width and are continuously mineralized over strike lengths of 250 to 2,400 m. The zones have been traced over a cumulative strike length of 9,400 m and all remain open for expansion along strike and at depth.
The 2014 program is managed by Archer, Cathro & Associates (1981) Limited (Archer Cathro). Technical information in this news release has been approved by Matthew R. Dumala, P.Eng., a geological engineer with Archer Cathro and qualified person for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101.
