Hat Gold-Copper Project now ready for year-round exploration and drilling
Doubleview Capital Corp. (“Doubleview”) ([TSX-V: DBV], [OTCBB: DBLVF], [GER: A1W038]) is pleased to announce that its Hat Project gold-copper alkalic porphyry discovery in northern British Columbia is now ready for year-round exploration.
Doubleview has commenced preparations for resumption of diamond drilling operations at its Hat property. Recently upgraded camp facilities will allow exploration and drilling crews to continue exploration activities through the winter. A carpentry crew in recent weeks has upgraded and rebuilt bunkhouse and cookhouse buildings to enable work to continue on a year-round basis. Original canvas tent structures have been replaced by insulated plywood-sheeted buildings capable of withstanding winter conditions.
Several drill pads are being built for a quick start-up of drilling when the fall program begins. Arrangements of personnel and contractors are being finalized and details of financings will be announced shortly.
The fall 2016 drilling program is expected to total about 2000 metres and will be directed to further exploration of the highly prospective Lisle Zone of mineralization where long drill hole intercepts of elevated gold and copper values have been encountered and reported in news releases. Typical intercepts include DH H-22: 404.20 metres with 0.26 g/tonne gold and 0.25% copper and DH H-23: 400.27 metres with 0.25 g/tonne gold and 0.29% copper. The zone of mineralization has not been delimited in any direction.
Gold of the Hat Gold-Copper Deposit:
In the context of Porphyry type deposit models, the Gold content of the Lisle Zone is one of its most significant features.The following table contains selected higher grade gold bearing samples (previously reported) from throughout the 1000m strike length drilled to date. The relatively high Gold to Copper ratio elsewhere within the overall mineralized zone may indicate the presence of a strong Gold bearing Zone within broader Copper-dominant mineralization.
Several geochemical soil sampling programs on the Hat property by previous owners and by Doubleview have demonstrated that anomalous Gold occurs in conjunction with Copper in soils: In particular a geochemical soil sample from the Anomaly D area, approximately 2000 metres southwest of the Lisle Zone assayed 0.38% Cu, 55.26 g/t Au and 27.9 g/t Ag.
The following table of analyses of surface rock samples from a 2008 exploration program illustrates the range of metal values, particularly gold values, that are found on the Hat property.
