About Dolly Varden

Dolly Varden Silver Corporation is a Canadian-based mineral exploration company focused on the exploration and development of the Dolly Varden silver property located in northwestern British Columbia. 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. 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 deposit. The Company has two strategies for creating value at the Dolly Varden silver project: to confirm and expand the existing historic silver resources with the goal to re-start the historic deposits and to explore a major, untested Eskay Creek-type gold and silver rich VMS target, located northwest of the past producing mines.
