If I'm understanding correctly, you have a host LV serving as a full drive

You probably want "kpartx", which will build a dm device for each
partition, based on the partition table it finds:
set up the dm slices:
sudo kpartx -a /dev/storagevg/drivelv
ls -l /dev/mapper/loop0p*
and to mount partition 2:
sudo mount /dev/mapper/loop0p2 /mnt/folder .....
after you're done:
sudo kpartx -d /dev/storagevg/drivelv
e.g. I've used this tool when converting KVM images:
