Doubleview Gold Corp. Announces Significant Copper and Gold Intervals, Including 6.94% Copper and 8.29 g/t Gold (11.27% Cu Eq[-Sc]) Over 4 meters, from South Lisle and Main Lisle Zones of Hat Porphyry Polymetallic Deposit

 

 

 

 

 

Doubleview Gold Corp. (TSX-V: DBG) (OTCQB: DBLVF) (FSE: A1W038) is pleased to announce analyses from the final five Hat Property drill holes of the 2023 drill campaign. Drill holes H067 and H068 in the South Lisle Zone returned very significant intervals of copper and gold values that add important length and grade dimensions to the porphyry deposit. Drill holes H069 and H070, in the main Lisle zone, were strategically placed to verify and expand our exploration model and have increased the mineralization and shown near-surface continuation. The enhanced volume of mineralization will be reflected in the estimates included in the Maiden Resource Estimate currently being prepared.

 

The Hat Porphyry project is located in the prolific “Golden Triangle” of the Stikine mining district of northwestern British Columbia, Canada, and is in a territory that hosts several large base and precious metal deposits. In addition to copper and gold, the Hat Deposit contains several critical metals, including Cobalt, and Scandium.

 

Mr. Farshad Shirvani, President and CEO, comments that “The 2023 program of drilling comprised almost 11,000 metres of drilling that explored and extended the Lisle deposit to west, south and southwest, enabled new interpretation of the deposit orientation and model, and revealed a new gold-silver-cobalt-rich area. Several previously unconnected mineral zones were joined and over-all dimensions were increased. A 4 meter section of hole H067 returned a remarkable 6.94% copper and 8.29 g/t gold (11.27% Cu Eq[-Sc] “Cu Eq calculated excluding Sc content”). Data for the Maiden Resource Estimate (MRE) were compiled and forwarded to an outside, arm’s length, consultant. When completed the MRE will be published and mark a very material progression in our development of the Hat deposit”.

 

South Lisle Zone:

 

Drill holes H067 and H068 returned strong Copper and Gold mineralization consistent with that reported from hole H034 and confirmed the apparent trend of mineralization to deeper and higher concentrations in the Lisle South area.

 

Drill hole H067:

 

Hole H067 intersected significant Gold and Copper mineralization over its entire length from 9 meters depth (see Table 1):

  • 537.8 meters of 0.24g/t Au plus 0.17% Cu (0.34% Cu Eq[-Sc])
  • Including: 210.4 meters of 0.47g/t Au plus 0.47% Cu (0.64% Cu Eq[-Sc])
  • Including: 113.3 meters of 0.75g/t Au plus 0.52% Cu (1.01% Cu Eq[-Sc])
  • Including: 48.0 meters of 1.60g/t Au plus 1.03% Cu (2.01% Cu Eq[-Sc])
  • Including: 25.0 meters of 3.03g/t Au plus 1.95% Cu (3.77% Cu Eq[-Sc])

 

Drill hole H068:

 

Hole H068 intersected mineralization from near surface to total 618 meters, including stronger values at depth

  • 103.0 meters of 0.20g/t Au plus 0.38% Cu (0.48% Cu Eq[-Sc])
  • Including: 67.0 meters of 0.27g/t Au plus 0.49% Cu (0.63% Cu Eq[-Sc])

 Scandium:

 

Scandium, one of the rarest metals, is deemed “critical” by Canadian and American federal governments. The Hat deposit is one of a small number of North American deposits that potentially contains significant amounts of scandium:

 

Scandium is utilized in various industries due to its unique properties, especially when alloyed with aluminum. Applications take advantage of scandium’s ability to enhance the strength, durability, and thermal resistance of aluminum, making the resultant alloy ideal for aerospace, military, and automotive industries. Additionally, scandium finds applications in the manufacturing of solid oxide fuel cells, where it serves as a critical component due to its electrical conductivity and heat resistance. These fuel cells are used in power generation with high efficiency and low emissions. Other industries that benefit from the use of scandium include lighting, electronics, and 3D printing, leveraging its capacity to improve the performance of materials and components within these sectors.

 

Quality Assurance and Quality Control:

 

Core samples were prepared at the North Vancouver facility of ALS Canada Ltd. using their PREP-31, PGM-ICP24, ME-MS61, and ME-ICP06 packages. Each core sample is dried, then crushed to 70% passing a 2mm screen. All material is processed in an automatic Riffle splitter to yield a 250g homogenized, representative sample. This sub-sample is then pulverized to 85% passing a 75-micron screen. All samples are analyzed for Au, Pt, Pd by 50g fire-assay fusion/ICP-ES finish, using PGM-ICP24 package. A separate 0.25g pulp split is analyzed by Four Acid digestion/ICP-MS finish, reporting 48 elements. Over limit elements are analyzed by Ore Grade Four Acid digestion/ICP-ES finish using ME-OG62 assay package. All of Doubleview’s core samples are analyzed or assayed at independent ISO 17025 and ISO 9001- certified laboratories.

 

Qualified Persons:
