Dolly Varden Intercepts 9.2 metres Grading 566 g/t Silver in the Moose-Lamb Zone

 

 

 

 

 

Dolly Varden Silver Corporation (TSX-V: DV) (OTCBB: DOLLF) is pleased to announce the results of the third batch of 10 drill holes from the 2018 diamond drilling program. The Dolly Varden Silver Property is in “The Golden Triangle” of northwestern British Columbia, Canada.

 

 

In the Moose-Lamb Zone, hole DV18-109 yielded 29.15 metres (22.33 m estimated true thickness) grading Ag 226.0 g/t, Pb 0.09 % and Zn 0.13 %, for a silver-equivalent of 237.1 g/t. Within this intercept are 9.20 metres (7.05 m estimated true thickness) grading Ag 566.0 g/t, Pb 0.03 % and Zn 0.07 %, for a silver-equivalent of 571.3 g/t.

 

 

Gary Cope, President & CEO, says; “The exploration program at Dolly Varden has progressed smoothly and drilling continues to yield high-grade silver intercepts. Additionally, assay results are pending from over 50 more drill holes.”

Silver Equivalent (Ag-Eq) is based on long term metal prices of Ag=$16.00/oz, Pb=$1.08/lb and Zn=$1.25/lb. No provision has been made for relative metal recovery, so Ag-Eq values assume 100% recovery. Ag-Eq = Ag + (Pb%*22.046*Pbprice*31.103/Agprice) + (Zn%*22.046*Znprice*31.103/Agprice).

 

 

A mineralized zone does not normally receive a name designation until several intercepts have pierced the same structure. The term “Unnamed” is used for intercepts of interest, but which have not yet been linked from hole to hole.

 

 

The 2018 drilling program is designed to focus on resource delineation and verification, particularly in the areas of the new discoveries from the 2017 exploration season (see news releases of August 29, November 27 and December 4, 2017). These include Torbrit North, Torbrit East and Moose-Lamb targets, as well as areas around the Torbrit and the Dolly Varden deposits.

 

 

The Torbrit North and Torbrit East discoveries are of the exhalative-style of silver and base metal mineralization along the Dolly Varden – Torbrit Horizon (“DVTH”), similar to the historic Torbrit Mine, but located in parallel and/or fault offset basins. The Torbrit North target is located 200 metres north and 220 metres deeper than the historic Torbrit Mine, in the footwall block northeast of the Moose-Lamb Fault. The Torbrit East target is located 70 metres east and 60 metres higher than the historic Torbrit Mine, in the hanging-wall block southwest of the Moose-Lamb Fault.

 

 

The Moose Lamb target discovery is an epithermal vein-style of mineralization and is similar to mineralization at the historic Dolly Varden Mine. It is adjacent to a major syn-basinal fault by the same name.

 

 

Exploration drilling is also marked for the Potassic Alteration Belt and in the Gold Belt Transect on the western side of the valley.

 

 

Analytical testing was performed by ALS Canada Ltd. in Vancouver, British Columbia. Multi-element analyses was determined by Inductively–Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) for 48 elements following a 4-acid digestion process. High grade silver testing was determined by Fire Assay with either an atomic absorption, or a gravimetric finish, depending on grade range. A QA/QC procedure is maintained through the insertion of certified geo-standards provided by CDN Resource Laboratories Ltd., as well as the insertion of blanks, in the sample stream.
