Doubleview Announces the Longest Yet Reported Gold and Copper Mineralization Intercept at Hat Gold Copper Porphyry

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - February 15, 2017) - Doubleview Capital Corp. ("Doubleview") (TSX VENTURE: DBV) announces that complete analytical results have now been obtained for all core samples from recent drilling programs at its Hat Project in northwestern British Columbia.

Drill hole H-23, parts of which were previously announced, intercepted

  • 456.28 m at 0.20 g/t Gold, 0.24% Copper, and 0.5 g/t Silver, (0.38% CuEq) of a longer mineralized intersection of
  • 514.90 m at 0.18 g/t Gold, 0.21% Copper, and 0.45 g/t Silver, (0.34% CuEq).

Drill hole H-26 intercepted

  • 261.13 m of mineralization at 0.16 g/t Gold, 0.24% Copper and 0.31 g/t Silver, (0.35% CuEq) of a longer
  • 514.41m mineralized intersection of 0.14 g/t Gold, 0.19% Copper and 0.43 g/t Silver, (0.28% CuEq).

The recent drill holes extend the Lisle Zone mineralization 75m to the east. The limits of the Lisle Zone have not been determined.

Drill hole H-24, located 997m northwest of hole H-26, is believed to be an extension of the Lisle Zone anomaly "A" but continuity is yet to be demonstrated.

The Hat Project, located 95 km southwest of Dease Lake and 475 km north of Smithers, B. C., is a gold-copper alkalic porphyry-type mineral deposit with apparent grades similar to those of several currently operating porphyry-type mines, and porphyry deposits(1) in the interior of British Columbia. Doubleview acquired the Hat property in 2011 and subsequently conducted technical surveys and since 2013 has drilled 10,281.3 metres in 30 drill holes. The 3561.4 hectare property is fully permitted.

The "Lisle Zone" that was discovered in 2013 has been the focus of recent drilling. The Company and its associates believe that a mineral deposit with minimum dimensions of approximately 350 metres by 330 metres and apparent thickness of 395 metres has been indicated and recent drill holes have continued to expand the "footprint." True thickness has not yet been determined. Several parts of the Hat Property with similar characteristics remain to be tested.

President and CEO, Mr. Farshad Shirvani, stated, "Doubleview continues to advance the Hat Project and is greatly encouraged by the current strength of global metal markets driven by robust economic growth and, in particular, by uncertainties in copper supplies. The Hat property is located in a stable political jurisdiction and has very favourable logistics."

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

All Hat Property drill core samples were prepared and analysed following rigourous QA/QC procedures. Drill cores were sampled on site by sawing the core lengthwise and placing one half securely in a sample bag that was subsequently forwarded by commercial carriers to a fully accredited analytical laboratory. The remaining half core was stored on the property for possible future reference. At the laboratory samples were dried and then crushed to 70% passing an 80 micron screen. A representative portion of the undersize was pulverized and a 0.5 gram sub-sample was processed by 3:1 Aqua Regia digestion followed by ICP-AES/MS analysis for 51 elements. Doubleview, in order to monitor the reliability of the laboratory's procedures and instruments, inserted certified standard samples into the sample stream and the laboratory performed and reported duplicate analyses of Hat Project samples as well as analyses of their own standard and blank samples.

Erik Ostensoe, P. Geo., a consulting geologist and Doubleview's Qualified Person with respect to the Hat Project as defined by National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, has reviewed and approved the technical contents of this news release.
