Northaven Completes Airborne Geophysics at King Solomon Basin Gold/Silver Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 12, 2011) - NORTHAVEN RESOURCES CORP. (TSX VENTURE:NTV) is pleased to announce that Geotech Limited has completed data acquisition on the Company's King Solomon Basin (KSB) gold and silver property employing their ZTEM System.

The 782.39 hectare KSB property, which is located 25 km southeast of Port Alberni, incorporates two former small mines and a number of known gold and silver mineralized occurrences over a 4.4 km segment of a longer apparent mineralized trend.

The former Black Panther Gold Mine produced 1,715 tones from 1947 to 1950 with reported grades of 9.24 g/t gold and 17.27 g/t silver. Mineralization occurs in gold bearing shears over a distance of 600 meters as well as in the surrounding altered wall rock, with surface samples ranging from nil to 165.66 g/t gold. Prior drilling indicates the Main Shear Zone extends to at least a depth of 150 meters.

Work at the nearby Black Lion Showing identified 2 additional shear zones which appear to be related to the Black Panther main shear with values up to 10.95 g/t gold. Work at the Golden Eagle Showing (1.9km east of the Black Panther) identified a vein of ribbon-quartz that has been traced for 122m along the north west strike and 99 m vertically. Surface assays of up to 93 g/t gold, 103 g/t silver over an average width of 1.1 meters have been reported.

The former Havalah gold mine contains three ribbon-quartz veins with widths from 0.1 to 3 meters and assays ranging from 13.7 - 125.5 g/t gold and 54.9 - 178.3 g/t silver. The mine produced 949 tons from 1936 to 1939 with reported grades of 8.48 g/t gold and 46.0 g/t silver.

Prior geological work on the property was stopped in the early 1980's and appears to have been limited to evaluation of the area immediately surrounding the known mineral occurrences. In spite of recommendations for further testing, no further work was done, due perhaps to low gold and silver prices at the time. There appears to have been no attempt made to establish continuity between the mineral occurrences.

Northaven believes the numerous gold and silver occurrences on the KSB property may be surface expressions of a much larger gold mineralizing system at depth.

Northaven anticipates that data from the now completed ZTEM program (which has a penetration capability of up to 2,000 meters) will assist significantly in confirming the existence and relevant parameters of this system. This ZTEM data, together with information from prior geological work may in turn help identify previously undetected target mineralization which could host a large scale gold and silver deposit, if confirmed by subsequent drilling.
