New Zone Of Mineralisation In “Golden Triangle”
Doubleview Gold Corp.(TSXV:DBG)has discovered of a new zone of mineralisation at its 100% owned Hat gold rich copper porphyry property located in the “Golden Triangle” of north-western British Columbia.
President and CEO, Farshad Shirvani, said drill hole H-037 is the first hole drilled into a previously untested IP Chargeability target; preliminary core observations including similar mineral and alteration assemblage, suggest that it potentially could be a significant extension of the Lisle Zone that has been the focus of all recent exploration.
The new area of interest has been partially defined by historic and most recent 3D induced polarization surveys and, pending better definition by drilling and surveys for its metallic content and size parameters, has been designated the “O Zone”.
Drill hole H-037 is collared 1460 metres west of the apparent centre of the Lisle Zone which has extended the exploration domain to approximately 2050 m.
Core is being processed on site with sawn half-core samples forwarded directly to an accredited independent analytical laboratory and remaining half-core retained for future reference. Core handling procedures observe QA/QC standards, including chain of custody and transfer by bonded carriers. Laboratory methods employ routine sample preparation, and insertion of certified standards, blanks and replicate samples in each batch.
“O Zone” Characteristics
- Sulphide mineralisation throughout
- Mineral assemblage includes Chalcopyrite, Magnetite, Pyrite, Quartz and possibly Chalcocite
- Porphyry-style sulphide and rock alteration suites
- High silica (Quartz) content in stockwork veins and in fractures – a significant difference from Lisle Zone
“We are hopeful that this new mineral zone will become an important addition to the gold and copper endowment of the Hat property,” Mr Shirvani said.
“The mineralisation footprint has been significantly extended to the west and our confidence in the 3D deep-penetrating induced polarization geophysical method is boosted.”
