VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Westridge Resources Inc. (the " Company") (TSX-V: WST) announces that geological mapping and trenching has identified several new epithermal veins south of the main El Padre Vein. This field work is being conducted concurrently with the diamond drill program underway on the Charay Project.
"Our mapping and trenching program has now demonstrated that the total, cumulative strike length of all vein features identified and inferred on the property is now reaching a total of 3,000 meters, more than ten times the strike length previously identified for the El Padre Vein," commented Peter Schulhof, President & CEO of Westridge Resources.
