May 28th, 2013, VANCOUVER, B.C. – ASHBURTON VENTURES INC. (TSX-V: ABR) (ARB-FRANKFURT) (“Ashburton” or the "Company”) announces today that it has staked mineral tenures adjacent to the Doubleview Capital Corp.’s (TSX-V: DBV) Hat Cu-Au property located in the prolific Stikine district of northwestern British Columbia. Doubleview recently announced commencement of a 2,000m drill hole program (see Doubleview Capital Corp. news release, May 2nd, 2013). The Hackett claims adjoin the eastern border of the Hat property, and cover 852 contiguous hectares. Volcanic-sedimentary assemblages and intrusive rocks on the property are similar and are believed to be part of the Stuhini Group, presently the focus of heightened exploration activity in northern British Columbia. Historical aeromagnetics for the project identified a magnetic high on the southern portion of the claims (B.C. Minfile Report #18158, 1988). Additional historical data are under review, in anticipation of mapping, sampling and geophysics to take place this summer.
