The East Saddle Project is a newly staked ~800-hectare property located immediately south of the Toiyabe and Turquoise Canyon Projects, directly adjacent to the past-producing Toiyabe Saddle mine.
East Saddle hosts favourable geological characteristics similar to Toiyabe. The exposed Wenban Formation and Roberts Mountains Thrust at the surface are also the same features that host the historical Courtney resource.
The absence of visible surface disturbance (drill roads, pads, etc.) suggests that the area is historically underexplored.
In December 2021, 101 mining claims were added immediately south of the Toiyabe and Turquoise Canyon Projects, increasing Westward’s existing land package by ~27%.
This prospective early-stage exploration area complements Westward’s more advanced properties.
