Hat Project: An Exceptionally Important and Potentially Transformative Endeavor for the North American Economy

The Hat Project stands out for its exceptional qualities, making it a truly remarkable venture within the Golden Triangle. This exploration endeavor encompasses a significant discovery of gold-rich, porphyry copper, accompanied by important critical metals of cobalt, scandium , nickle and platinum group metals (PGMs), and zinc. These valuable minerals, combined with the project’s advantageous accessibility and well-established infrastructure, contribute to the extraordinary nature of the Hat Project.

By incorporating a diverse array of sought-after minerals, the Hat Project presents a rare opportunity for comprehensive resource extraction. The presence of gold-rich, porphyry copper and scandium ensures substantial economic potential, while the inclusion of cobalt, PGMs, nickel, and zinc further enhances its value. This unique combination of minerals positions the Hat Project as a highly attractive and promising investment prospect.

Moreover, the Hat Project benefits from its strategic location within the renowned Golden Triangle, known for its mineral wealth and mining history. The region’s well-developed infrastructure, including transportation networks and established facilities, provides a significant advantage for efficient and cost-effective operations. This exceptional accessibility adds to the project’s appeal and reinforces its potential for successful exploration and development.

The Hat Project represents a distinctive opportunity in the mining industry, combining a potential wealth of valuable minerals with favorable conditions for efficient extraction. Doubleview Gold Corp. is dedicated to leveraging these exceptional attributes to maximize shareholder value and contribute to the global market’s demand for these precious resources.

Hat Gold Rich Copper Porphyry

Location / Infrastructure: (Area : 5,200.00 ha)

The Hat Property comprises 5,200.00 hectares in ten mineral tenures and is located in northwestern British Columbia, 95 km southwest of Dease Lake and 190 km south of Atlin. It is immediately east of the Coast Mountains and south of Level Mountain, a large inactive shield-type volcano. Hat project is located about 10 kilometers North of the Golden Bear Road. Current access is by fixed-wing aircraft from Dease Lake or Whitehorse to the nearby airstrip or by helicopter directly to the Hat project camp. The recently completed Northwest Transmission Line brings electric power to within 120 km and Highway 37, an all-weather hard surfaced road, is 95 km east.


Proudly, the Doubleview management and geological team discovered the Hat deposit in early 2014 from a greenfield prospect in the first drilling season. Although the mineralization length in some drill holes exceeds 0.5 km, the company has yet to identify the extent of the deposit laterally and at depth.

The deposit has a sulphide footprint of more than 11 square km, determined by rock samples and geological mapping, and has the potential to be one of British Columbia’s most important discoveries in recent years.

The Hat Property has been explored by magnetic and induced polarization geophysical surveys, geochemical soil surveys and geological mapping and dimond drilling.

Historic (1978-1979, et al.) geochemical soil surveys identified large areas with anomalous to strongly anomalous copper in soils values that were confirmed in 2011 by additional surveys. Prospecting and geological investigations located zones of copper and gold mineralization and areas of outcroppings with alteration and mineralization characteristic of porphyry-type deposits coincident with strongly anomalous magnetic and chargeability responses. Further surveys in 2011 provided additional data that supported the grassroots exploration model that guided initial diamond drilling in 2013.

Following the drilling of six holes with marginal but encouraging success, a more aggressive drilling campaign in 2014 resulted in the discovery of the Lisle Zone of gold-copper mineralization. Further drilling in 2015 and 2016 has confirmed the presence of a very large gold-copper deposit that has not been delimited in any dimension. The Hat Project Lisle Zone is an alkalic-type gold-copper porphyry discovery closely similar in genesis, host rock types, alteration and mineralization to several important British Columbia mines, including the Copper Mountain, Mt Polley, Mt Milligan, and Red Chris operating mines but distinct from Valley Copper and Gibraltar calc-alkalic porphyry mines.

Producing Mines:

  • Red Chris Mine (Imperial Metals)
  • Highland Valley (Teck)
  • Gibraltar  (Taseko Mines)
  • Copper Mountain (Copper Mtn Mining)
  • Endako (Thompson Creek)
  • Huckleberry (Imperial Metals)

Developed Deposits:

  • Galore Creek (Teck/NovaGold)
  • Kutcho (Capstone)
  • Morrison (Pacific Booker )
  • Schaft Creek (Copper Fox)
  • Sulphurets (Seabridge/Pretium)

Hat Project Infrastructure Regional Geology Setting:

Doubleview’s Hat Project is located 95 km southwest of Dease Lake, Northwestern B.C., Canada. Access is by aircraft and helicopter from nearby roads and airstrips. An historic mining road passes within ten km of the property. Goods and services, contractors and personnel are obtained from local communities and from Smithers, B. C. and Whitehorse, Yukon.

Doubleview’s field crews are accommodated in a comfortable temporary camp equipped with amenities and reliable communications.

Doubleview’s Hat Project is being explored in complete observance of provisions of MX 1-872, a provincial permit required by legislation and regulations that was issued following consultation with all parties. A monetary bond is held by the province to ensure satisfactory reclamation by Doubleview, it can be remediated without the need for public funds.
