York Street boss Neil Thompson signed White in time for Saturday's clash against Bristol Rovers, as Simon Weatherstone and Graeme Jones are still struggling with knee injuries.
With veteran midfielder Neil Redfearn (3) and defender Paul Ellender (2) leading the scoring charts for The Pilgrims this term, Thompson sees the giant 21-year-old striker as the solution to his lack of goals from his forward line.
Stags boss Keith Curle issued a reassuring arm around the giant striker's shoulder by saying the door at Field Mill is still open to the youngster.
"The one-month loan is to just get his match sharpness back and bring his game up to the tempo that we are now playing," said Curle.
With just one win from their opening six league encounters, utility man Ellender says there is no need to panic, as it mirrors Boston's debut campaign in the league last season, and says the players are capable of reviving the club's fortunes starting against The Pirates on Saturday.
"It has been a difficult start for us, and we have had some hard games, but September could be a profitable month," said Ellender.
"I don't think we are that far off putting a run together because there have been glimpses of what we can do.
"Now it is a case of putting everything together and getting some momentum."
In other news, midfielder Alex Higgins is on his way out of Boston, while Mansfield boss Curle also announced that chairman Keith Haslam had agreed to the longer term signings of defenders Luke Dimech and David Artell.
"Both players know the financial situation at the club, but we are now in the final stages of putting the closing touches on year-long deals with the possibility of an extension subject to promotion etc," he added.
