Their substantial ongoing investment in Dolly Varden and their strategic assistance is a testament to the experienced team we’ve assembled and the prospects of our Dolly Varden property. We look forward to advancing our drilling and infrastructure program this spring and summer with the goal of defining a high-grade silver resource on our existing four deposits, and identifying an Eskay Creek-type VMS deposit at our Red Point target, just northwest of our existing mines.”
About Dolly Varden
Dolly Varden Silver Corporation is a Canadian-based mineral exploration company focused on the exploration and development of the 100% owned, historic Dolly Varden silver and gold property located in northwestern British Columbia. The Dolly Varden silver property consists of 9,400 hectares which includes four well-defined high grade silver deposits, two of which have seen historic production totaling 20 million ounces of silver. All four deposits have remaining historic mineral resources and are situated in the same geologic setting as the past-producing Eskay Creek gold-silver-rich VMS deposit. The Company has two strategies for creating value at the Dolly Varden silver project: to confirm the historic silver resources with the goal to re-start the mining of historic deposits and to explore a major, untested Eskay Creek-type gold and silver rich VMS target, located northwest of the past producing mines.
The Company’s common shares are listed and traded on the TSX-V under the symbol DV and in the U.S. under the symbol DOLLF.
