VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired - Sept. 10, 2014) -Dolly Varden Silver Corporation (TSX VENTURE:DV)(OTCBB:DOLLF) (“Dolly Varden” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that, following the recent successful completion of a $5.7 million financing, the Company has commenced a diamond drill program of up to 8,000 meters, or 20 holes, on the Dolly Varden property, located 26 km by road from tidewater at Alice Arm, in Northwestern British Columbia.
The exploration program is designed to test numerous defined drill-ready epithermal and Eskay-Creek style targets, as well as expand known silver mineralization on the Torbrit-Red Point corridor, where last year’s drill program intercepted a 17.1m interval grading 509 g/t silver.
The three drilling/exploration zones are:
- Torbrit-Red Point Corridor - following known silver mineralization to the northeast underneath Red Point, an Eskay-Creek style target;
- Musketeer Corridor - which runs along the East side of the Kitsault river with numerous silver-rich epithermal vein-type showings with strong potassic radiometric signatures; and
- Wolf-Surprise Corridor - where an Eskay-Creek style host formation containing silver-rich VMS mineralization was identified by the Company’s 2011 drill program.
See news releases of April 29, 2014, May 6, 2014, and May 22, 2014 for descriptions of the targets and exploration corridors and visit www.dollyvardensilver.com for additional information on the property and last year’s drill program.
The exploration team has completed 8 drill pads, to date, within the three targeted corridors.
The first drill hole has been located to test for mineralization underneath Red Point.
Ongoing prospecting, geologic mapping, and geochemical soil sampling is continuing to infill and expand the favorable trends identified with the recently completed first phase field program (see news release of September 5, 2014). Results from this follow-up work are expected to provide additional drill targets that will be added to the later part of the drill program.
