Doubleview Gold Corp (“Doubleview”, the “Company”) (TSXV:DBG) (OTC:DBLVF) (FRANKFURT:1D4) is pleased to provide update on metallurgical testwork program of drill core rock samples at its 100% owned Hat Copper-Gold-Cobalt deposit, located in the Golden Triangle region of Atlin Mining District in Northwest British Columbia. Testwork is in progress and as per work flow designed by the company’s metallurgy team led by Mr. Andrew Carter EUR ING B.Sc. CEng. MIMMM, MSAIMM SME of Coffey – A Tetra Tech Company.
Recent laboratory testwork demonstrated that it is possible to produce a high-gold, low-cobalt chalcopyrite concentrate and a high-cobalt, low gold pyrite concentrate from HAT project mineralogical materials. Additional testwork is being implemented, which is aimed at improving process selectivity, concentrate grades and recoveries.
HAT drill core assays have indicated the presence of scandium at elevated levels typically twice that associated with crustal rocks. Scandium is a high value technology metal and is used in the manufacture of super-alloys and ceramic fuel cells; the market for scandium is anticipated to expand significantly in the near future. Preliminary analysis indicated the potential for by-product scandium production from the HAT project. The flotation testwork program will generate a tailings product that will be evaluated for the potential recovery of scandium. If the testwork proves successful, then by-product scandium production could add significant value to the HAT project.
Follow up updates will be announced as they become available.

About the Hat Project:
The Hat Property is considered a probable porphyry gold-copper deposit with characteristics similar to those of many of British Columbia’s major deposits. Hat mineralization carries many of the important North American strategic metals, including but not limited to, Copper, Cobalt, and Scandium, with unique metallurgical characteristics that differ from other base metal deposits of British Columbia’s Stikine Terrane. Sulphide mineralization, primarily chalcopyrite, occurs in fracture zones in dioritic intrusive rocks and strongly altered andesitic volcanic and volcaniclastic rocks of Upper Triassic age.
Doubleview acquired the Hat Property in 2011 and has conducted several programs of exploration, Doubleview discovered the Hat deposit under the supervision and guidance of Mr. Erik Ostensoe, P.Geo.
