ASHBURTON TO COMMENCE WORK PROGRAM AT HACKETT PROPERTY IN SHESLAY REGION
April 23rd, 2014, VANCOUVER, B.C. – ASHBURTON VENTURES INC. (TSX-V: ABR) (ARB-FRANKFURT) (“Ashburton” or the "Company”) announces it is arranging an initial work program to commence the 2015 field season on its 100% owned Hackett property in the Sheslay Valley. The Hackett property is contiguous to the Doubleview Capital Corp. (TSX-V: DBV) Hat Cu-Au property.
The 2,130 hectare Hackett claim group adjoins the eastern and northern borders of the Hat property. During last season flyovers at Hackett, a large gossanous zone along the western portion of the property was observed from the air and will now be the subject of an early work program. The western edge of Hackett is within 1,000 metres of Doubleview’s discovery drill holes that indicate the strong potential for a copper-gold alkalic porphyry-type deposit (see Doubleview Capital Corp. news release, February 3, 2015).
Approximately 300 metres west of the Hackett, on the Doubleview ground adjoining the southwestern border of the Hackett property, assays from the historical Hoey showing report up to 6,600 parts per billion Au and historical aeromagnetics on the Hackett property define a magnetic high on the southern claims (W. Thompson, 1988, B.C. Minfile report No. 18158). No drilling has ever been carried out on this property.
“We look forward to resuming work on the Hackett property this season.” states Mike England, CEO of Ashburton Ventures. “The Sheslay region of B.C. is an exciting area and with the success to date of Doubleview’s Hat project, and our proximity to their discovery, we feel we have excellent potential here.”
