About Dolly Varden
Dolly Varden Silver Corporation is a mineral exploration company focused on the exploration and development of the Dolly Varden silver property located 26km by road from tidewater at Alice Arm, in Northwestern British Columbia, Canada. The Dolly Varden silver property consists of 6,400 hectares that includes four well-defined high grade silver deposits, two of which have seen historical production totaling 20 million ounces of silver. All four deposits have remaining historical mineral resources and are situated in the same geologic setting as the past-producing Eskay Creek deposit. The Company has two near-term objectives for creating value at the Dolly Varden silver project: 1) confirm and expand the existing historical silver mineralization, and 2) explore and discover major Eskay Creek-type gold and silver rich VMS targets and large epithermal systems. The Company’s common shares are listed and traded on the TSX-V under the symbol DV and on the OTCBB system under the symbol DOLLF.
