Dolly Varden Silver Outlines 2024 Resource Expansion and Discovery-Focused Exploration Drill Program

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – April 23, 2024) – Dolly Varden Silver Corporation (TSXV: DV) (OTCQX: DOLLF) (the “Company” or “Dolly Varden“) is pleased to announce plans for the 2024 exploration drilling program at its 100% owned Kitsault Valley Project. An initial 25,000 meters of diamond drilling is planned, starting with three drills. The focus will be on following up on new discoveries as well as stepping out from wide, higher-grade intercepts from the 2023 drilling, particularly at the Homestake Silver and Wolf deposits. Mobilization will be in the first week of May, allowing for an earlier start on exploration than previous years due to a low snowpacks.

The drill program will be split approximately 50/50 between the Dolly Varden Property and the Homestake Ridge Property, with an overall project split of 1/3 to Homestake Silver deposit area, 1/3 to Wolf deposit area and 1/3 to project wide exploration targets with new discovery potential.

“Our drill results from Homestake Silver were among the highest-grade gold and silver intercepts anywhere in the Golden Triangle in 2023; our priority with this early start is to continue with step-outs as well as infill drilling to confirm continuity of the potentially bulk-mineable mineralization. Further south, silver mineralization at Wolf remains wide open for expansion and this seasons’ introduction of directional drilling technology will allow for highly accurate placement of drill intercepts,” said Shawn Khunkhun, CEO of Dolly Varden Silver.

Wolf Vein

At the Wolf Vein, drilling is planned to delineate the width and extent of the southerly plunge of wider and higher-grade silver mineralization. Step out holes that define the trace of the plunge are spaced so that any new mineralization can be included in a future resource update. The Company will implement directional drilling technology with the objective of more cost effective and accurate exploration at Wolf, particularly for deep holes.

Wolf Vein remains open to depth where results from 2023 drilling indicate an increase in base metal (lead and zinc) content as well as wider epithermal breccia vein silver mineralization, such as previous released step-out drill hole DV23-375, that intersected 296 g/t silver, 1.68% Pb and 3.01%Zn (461 g/t AgEq*) over 26.99 meters, including 1,475g/t Ag, 10.65% Pb and 12% Zn (2,260 g/t AgEq*) over 0.50 meter from an 81-metre step-out (from previous release: November 6, 2023).

*AuEq and AgEq are calculated using two precious metal components at $US1650/oz Au, $US20/oz Ag, $US0.90/lb Pb and $US1.10/lb Zn. Assays are not capped and 100% recovery used for Ag and Au and base metals.
**Estimated true widths vary depending on intersection angles and range from 50% to 85% of core lengths, further modelling of the new interpretation is needed before true widths can be calculated.

Homestake Silver

The program planned for Homestake Silver will start with follow up drilling on the newly discovered gold zone at the northern extent of deposit, where coarse-grained native gold in late-stage quartz-carbonate veins (Figure 3.) returned grades of 1,335 g/t Au and 781 g/t Ag over 0.68 meters within a wider interval of stockwork grading 79.49 g/t Au and 60 g/t Ag over 12.45 meters in drill hole HR23-389 (from previous release: February 12, 2024). Data from oriented core drilling indicates these quartz-carbonate veins are geologically younger and crosscut the Homestake trend at a low angle.

The second part of Homestake Silver drilling will be resource expansion and upgrade holes that target the low angle, north dipping plunge of wide and high-grade gold and silver mineralization encountered in 2023 (Figure 4.). The mineralized plunge orientation at Homestake Silver was initially recognized in 2023 with results such as previously reported drill hole HR23-416, that intercepted the newly defined mineralized envelope returned a 93.95 meter wide zone grading 1.74 g/t Au and 213 g/t Ag (357 g/t AgEq) which included several distinct breccia vein intervals grading 11.80 g/t Au and 1,824 g/t Ag (2,802 g/t AgEq) over 9.16 meters length, 13.16 g/t Au and 3,085 g/t Ag (4,176 g/t AgEq) over 2.26 meters and 55.40 g/t Au and 4,830 g/t Ag (9,422 g/t AgEq) over 1.02 meters (previous release: January 16, 2024).

Exploration Targets including Moose Vein

The Moose Vein is located 1.5 km up north of the Wolf Vein and is interpreted to be hosted within a similar cross cutting structure as Wolf. In 2023, drill hole DV23-371 from the Moose vein intercepted veining and mineralization similar to that seen at Wolf that graded 712 g/t Ag over 1.00 meter within a 7.55-metre-length interval averaging 269 g/t Ag (from previous release: November 6, 2024). This mineralization will be followed up by targeting down the same plunge trend as defined at Wolf.

Other Exploration targets on both the Homestake Ridge and Dolly Varden properties include targets within the 5.4 km long area between the southern end of Homestake Silver and Wolf Vein, under the mid-valley sedimentary cap rocks. Additionally, geophysical targets west of the Homestake Main deposit will be tested, within a parallel basin bounding structures similar to those hosting the Homestake Main and Homestake Silver deposits.

Other studies on road access, advanced metallurgy, wildlife, and baseline environmental monitoring as well as field mapping in underexplored areas of the property will be completed.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

The Company adheres to CIM Best Practices Guidelines for exploration related activities conducted on its property. Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC) procedures are overseen by the Qualified Person.

Dolly Varden QA/QC protocols are maintained through the insertion of certified reference material (standards), blanks and field duplicates within the sample stream. Drill core is cut in-half with a diamond saw, with one-half placed in sealed bags and shipped to the laboratory and the other half retained on site. Third party laboratory checks on 5% of the samples are carried out as well. Chain of custody is maintained from the drill to the submittal into the laboratory preparation facility.

Analytical testing was performed by ALS Canada Ltd. in North Vancouver, British Columbia. The entire sample is crushed to 70% minus 2mm (10 mesh), of which a 500 gram split is pulverized to minus 200 mesh. Multi-element analyses were 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. Au is also determined by fire assay on a 30g split with either atomic absorption, or gravimetric finish, depending on grade range. Metallic screen on a 1.0kg sample may be completed on high-grade gold samples.

EMX Royalty Enters into Automatic Share Purchase Plan

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – April 15, 2024) – EMX Royalty Corporation (NYSE American: EMX) (TSXV: EMX) (FSE: 6E9) (the “Company” or “EMX“) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an automatic share purchase plan (“ASPP“) with its broker in order to facilitate repurchases of EMX’s common shares (the “Shares“) under the Company’s previously announced normal course issuer bid (the “NCIB“).

The Company previously announced that it had received approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV“) to purchase up to 5,000,000 Shares for cancellation over a twelve-month period that commenced on February 13, 2024 and terminates no later than February 12, 2025. All purchases made pursuant to the NCIB will be made through the facilities of the TSXV, NYSE American Stock Exchange (“NYSE American“), other designated exchanges and/or alternative Canadian trading systems or by such other means as may be permitted by applicable securities laws. The price that EMX will pay for Shares in open market transactions will be the market price at the time of purchase. Any Shares that are purchased under the NCIB will be cancelled. Since the commencement of the NCIB on February 13, 2024, the Company has purchased 17,700 Shares on the TSXV and alternative Canadian trading systems at a weighted average price per Share of $2.62 for an aggregate value of approximately $46,000, and 58,302 Shares on the NYSE American and alternative U.S. trading systems at a weighted average price per Share of US$1.93 for an aggregate value of approximately US$112,000.

EMX believes that from time to time, the market price of its Shares may not reflect their underlying value and that the purchase of its Shares will enhance shareholder value and increase liquidity of the Shares. The Company intends to fund the purchases out of available cash. The ASPP will facilitate purchases under the NCIB as it will allow for purchases of Shares to be made at times when the Company would ordinarily not be permitted to make purchases, whether due to regulatory restriction or customary self-imposed blackout periods.

Under the ASPP, the Company’s broker may purchase Shares from the effective date of the ASPP until the end of the NCIB. The ASPP will facilitate purchases of Shares under the NCIB by authorizing the Company’s broker to make purchases at its sole discretion based on parameters set by the Company in accordance with the rules of the TSXV and NYSE American, applicable law and the terms of the ASPP. Outside of periods that the Company is restricted from purchasing Shares pursuant to insider trading rules or its own internal trading blackout policies, Shares may also be purchased at the Company’s discretion, in compliance with the rules of the TSXV and NYSE American and applicable law.

All purchases of Shares made under the ASPP will be included in determining the number of Shares purchased under the NCIB. Any Shares purchased by the Company pursuant to the ASPP will be cancelled. The Company is not currently in possession of any material undisclosed information in relation to the Company, the Shares or any of the Company’s other securities. The ASPP constitutes a “written automatic purchase plan” for purposes of applicable Canadian securities legislation and the ASPP has been pre-cleared by the TSXV and will be effective on April 12, 2024.

The ASPP will terminate on the earliest of the date on which: (a) the maximum purchase limit under the NCIB has been reached; (b) the NCIB expires; or (c) the ASPP otherwise terminates in accordance with its terms.

Terra Balcanica Executes Letter of Intent For Option Agreement To Acquire 100% Interest In Advanced Saskatchewan Uranium Portfolio

Vancouver, British Columbia, April 03, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Terra Balcanica Resources Corp. (“Terra” or the “Company”) (CSE:TERA; FRA:UB1), a multi-jurisdictional exploration company focused on supporting the global transition to clean energy, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a non-binding Letter of Intent (the “Agreement”) with a wholly owned subsidiary of Fulcrum Metals Plc., (“Fulcrum”, AIM:FMET). Pursuant to the Agreement, Terra will have an option (the “Option Agreement”) to acquire a 100% interest in Fulcrum’s Charlot-Neely, Fontaine Lake, Snowbird and South Pendleton uranium licences (the “Licences”) located in northern Saskatchewan, Canada and collectively encompassing 596.71 km2 of highly prospective ground for a uranium discovery.


  • Proximal to northern and southeastern edges of the Athabasca Basin (“Basin”) in northern Saskatchewan, a premium mining district and leading global source of high-grade uranium;
  • Charlot-Neely is located within the emerging Uranium City district on the northwestern margin of the Basin
  • Historical work at the projects has demonstrated evidence of uranium mineralization along favourable structural trends with prospective target horizons based on electromagnetic conductors;
  • Future exploration requires the undertaking of a modern systematic geologic fieldwork to determine the uranium potential.

Terra Balcanica CEO, Dr. Aleksandar Mišković, commented: “In our pursuit of high-quality assets worldwide, Terra Balcanica has secured an option to acquire a Canadian uranium portfolio covering close to 600 km2 with tremendous potential for discovery. In a world transitioning to green energy solutions, the acquisition of these assets provides a more robust and diverse exploration portfolio for Terra. Although there has been an increase in activity in the uranium sector, we are at the early stages of a commodity super-cycle and being able to acquire such a large, advanced uranium portfolio on favourable terms was a clear opportunity for our shareholders. It is the right time, jurisdiction, and commodity to augment our advanced Balkan portfolio and to further participate in the changing energy landscape. We look forward to working with Fulcrum to apply their technical and jurisdictional expertise to advance these Saskatchewan uranium projects, and we are excited by the addition of a strategic commodity to Terra’s existing polymetallic portfolio.” 

Portfolio Overview and Discovery Opportunity

The licence portfolio totals 596.71 km2 targeting major NE-SW trending structures along strike from historic uranium mines and projects that have attracted significant investment. Discoveries such as the Arrow (4.3Mt at 0.83% U3O8; and Triple R (2.7Mt at 1.94% U3O8 have proved the concept of exploring along structures outside of the Athabasca basin.

Figure 1. Regional map of northern Saskatchewan, Canada which is one of the world’s leading sources of high-grade uranium and supplies about 20% of the world’s uranium. The blue symbols illustrate locations of the four optioned exploration properties totalling 596 km2 in the context of the world-famous Athabasca Basin, a Paleoproterozoic siliciclastic depo-centre (click here to view image).

Key Terms of Agreement

On closing of the transaction, Terra will have a four-year option to acquire 100% of Fulcrum’s owned uranium licences.

In consideration for the four-year option and at the time a definitive agreement is announced by way of news release and subject to a CSE approval, Terra shall pay Fulcrum C$7,500 for exclusivity on execution of signing of the Letter and pay Fulcrum C$25,000 less the C$7,500 exclusivity payment on execution of closing of the Option Agreement.

Additionally, Terra shall pay Fulcrum cash according to the schedule below:

  • C$50,000 on the first anniversary of closing of the Option Agreement;
  • C$75,000 on the second anniversary of closing of the Option Agreement;
  • C$75,000 on the third anniversary of closing of the Option Agreement;
  • C$75,000 on the fourth anniversary of closing of the Option Agreement;

and issue Fulcrum shares of TERA at the 10-Day Volume Weighted Average Price (“VWAP”) prior to the date of issuance as per the following schedule:

  • C$250,000 on closing of the Option Agreement with the initial share payments capped at C$0.065/share, pre-consolidation;
  • C$350,000 on the first anniversary of closing of the Option Agreement;
  • C$500,000 on the second anniversary of closing of the Option Agreement;
  • C$650,000 on the third anniversary of closing of the Option Agreement;
  • C$1,250,000 on the fourth anniversary of closing of the Option Agreement;

Terra will also complete minimum work expenditures totalling $3,250,000 prior to the fourth anniversary of the Option Agreement and grant Fulcrum a 1.0% Net Smelter Return (“NSR”) on all claims with buydown option of 0.5% NSR for C$1,000,000.

As part of the Option Agreement and for terminating the existing prior agreement (the “Prior Agreement”) between Fulcrum and Global Energy Metals Corp. (“Global Energy”), Global Energy will be compensated with C$150,000 in shares in TERA on closing of the Option Agreement and a 0.5% NSR on all claims.

Naked Short Sellers Beware! Brokers Now Responsible For Clients’ Illegal Actions

Hello Everyone,

It’s been a while since our last post, but we’ve never forgotten the cause or stopped working on solutions to the crime of predatory naked short-selling. In this post, we want to share some encouraging news that could mark a turning point in the fight against this harmful practice.

Power Nickel’s Innovative Efforts
Before we dive into the exciting development, we’d like to mention our ongoing journey at Power Nickel and our flagship Nisk Nickel PGM deposit in Quebec. Like many junior mining companies, we’ve faced significant challenges due to predatory short sellers. We’ll share more about Power Nickel’s innovative efforts to combat naked shorts in a future article.

A Ray of Hope
In today’s challenging capital markets, hope can be scarcer than capital itself. However, we’ve come across a significant development that should give us all a reason to be hopeful. The USA brokers are now being held responsible for the actions of their clients. If clients engage in illegal naked short selling or spoofing and cause damage to the companies being targeted, brokers can be held liable.

You can read the full article here. This ruling has the potential to send shockwaves through brokers in the USA who have been linked to illegal naked short-selling schemes. It should also serve as a wake-up call to Canadian regulators who have allowed similar activities to persist.

The Road Ahead
We believe that litigation against brokers by affected companies will increase, and US brokers may become increasingly cautious about exposing themselves to such risks. While it’s still early days, and the naked short-selling industry is well-funded and influential, this ruling is a significant step in the right direction.

Judgment day just got a lot closer for those complicit in naked short-selling. The big question now is, what will Canada do?

Time for Canadian Regulators to Act
It’s high time for IIROC and the Securities Commission to wake up and do their job. An article by NIALL MCGEE highlights the challenges faced by the Canadian mining sector (Read Here). We are in a top-quartile commodity price market, and the world needs Canadian minerals. The capital markets need fixing, and we can no longer accept excuses from regulators who claim not to see anything wrong.

If regulators continue to refuse to act, then it’s time for a change. Perhaps the entire self-regulatory system should be reconsidered. It’s time for governments, both provincially and federally, to demand changes from our regulators or impose a new regulatory regime. The Canadian capital markets are broken and are failing to serve the needs of the majority of Canadians.

In closing, let’s take this recent positive ruling in the USA as a sign of hope. We are moving one step closer to eradicating the damages caused by predatory naked short-selling and ushering in the greatest commodities-driven boom in history.

Stay tuned for more updates on this important issue. Together, we can make a difference and ensure fair and transparent financial markets for all.

Riverside Samples 21 g/t Gold at PAT Target on the Pichette Gold Project, NW Ontario

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – February 29, 2024) – Riverside Resources Inc. (TSXV: RRI) (OTCQB: RVSDF) (FSE: 5YY) (“Riverside” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce it has located and sampled the PAT Vein showings inside its Pichette Project west of Geraldton, Ontario. As previously reported, P.A.T Mines drilled extensively a series of veins near the southern boundary in the 1950s. The company was also able to locate what it believes to be the PAT Veins where they outcrop on surface. Several samples were taken from the vein along a 50m exposed section that returned 1m chip samples of 13g/t and 21 g/t gold within banded iron formation units. These high-grade veins are similar to those mined at the Leitch and Sand River mines where the average grade was around 1 ounce/ton gold with silver.

The Pichette Project has excellent road access and infrastructure being located immediately south of the Trans-Canada Highway. The project is underlain by an east-west trending panel of Archean-aged metavolcanic and metasedimentary rocks intruded by gabbros and latter porphyries. Metamorphism and tectonics have in most cases upgraded the tenor of gold mineralization in the belt between Beardmore and Geraldton.

In addition to the surface sampling Riverside completed a geological interpretation of the project to evaluate the timing and relationships of structural events and gold mineralization. As at the Greenstone Mine gold mineralization largely occurred in the first deformational events and was later remobilized or deformed by subsequent deformational events. The Greenstone Gold Mine has been studied by many experts and a complicated evolution of events has been documented as is common in Archean gold belts. The Greenstone Gold Mine will produce over 200,000 ounces of gold per year beginning this year.

“Riverside is very excited to have found high grade gold on surface at the PAT Veins. While the veins are mostly covered by the forest organics, the banded iron formations associated with the veins and mineralized shears are easy to locate using the magnetic survey completed in 2022. The BIF unit extends across the project outlining a multi-kilometer” states Riverside’s President and CEO, John-Mark Staude.

This fall the Company completed a structural analysis of the geology and timing of mineralization at Pichette in order provide some context of the structures within the property and how they relate to the evolution of larger greenstone belt and nearby past producers and known gold occurrences. This analysis interprets the first phase of deformation resulted in folding of the Banded Iron Formations and north-south shortening of intrusions with most of the vein mineralization occurring during a second sinistral shearing event. These rocks were again subjected to a third dextral shearing event which resulted in some remobilization in metals.

On surface the mineralized zone consists of sugary and banded quartz with massive pyrrhotite and lesser arsenopyrite and pyrite with chlorite The average width of the altered and mineralized zone is 30m consisting primarily of pyritized and silicified mafic metavolcanics and BIF. Historical drill logs suggest a sharp contact between geological units that include mafic metavolcanics, metasediments, gabbros and quartz porphyries.

Gold is commonly enriched in intensely altered rocks adjacent to or within quartz-carbonate veins and veinlets as is found in orogenic deposits. Several of the historical drill logs document high grade intercepts similar to those documented at the Leitch Gold Mine to the west at Beardmore.

The alteration comprises a sequence of well fractured greenstone containing occasional small stringers of hard, reddish, siliceous material, with slight pyritization. The rock changes northward into a light green or tanned rock described in logs as “carbonate”. On surface more siliceous phases are noted with hard, black cherty material often found with the quartz veins. Moving further away from the zone a sericitic phase dominates.

Rock samples from the exploration program discussed above at Pichette were driven from site to Activation Laboratories in Thunder Bay for analysis. Analysis was completed using total digestion and Multi-Element Analysis (40 element) via Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometry and fire assay for gold. The QA/QC program implemented as part of the sampling procedures included inserting one standard and one blank inserted by Riverside every 20 batch of samples. Activation Laboratories is an ISO/IEC accredited laboratory.

Newmont Went Down 7% One Day a Week Ago. Here is Why

Bob Moriarty
Feb 27, 2024

Newmont went down 7% for the same reason a dog walks into the middle of the road to lick its dick.

Because it can.

A number of other writers including John Hathaway are commenting on the disconnect between the cost of gold and silver compared to the price of resource stocks. While gold has pretty much held its own and silver is down but a tiny bit lately, the resource stocks have been hammered to all time lows lately seemingly without reason.

There is a reason.

Actually, there are two reasons.

It’s common for investors to focus on the price and action of the shares they own and what they might be interested in buying. But right now, those numbers are meaningless. Newmont didn’t have a pit collapse in Turkey. They didn’t have a copper mine seized in Panama or any abysmal drill results from an important project.

Newmont shares got sold because they could.

In the past six weeks as Bitcon soared higher, over four billion dollars of new money flowed into the speculation. The money had to come from somewhere. It came from gold and silver ETFs and it plunged out of resource funds at a historic rate. While four billion shot into Bitcon, two billion came out of gold and silver ETFs.

The money didn’t come out of the cheapest and worst resource stocks. They are the least liquid. It came out of the biggest and the best, the most liquid.

Because it could.

So, a lot of money left the tiny world of gold and silver stocks to enter the far bigger speculation we call Bitcon. But there was another giant factor pretty much ignored by everyone.

On April 25, 2011 I predicted silver was at a top. As a result, I was bombarded with hundreds of emails telling me I was a fool and a fraud. Here is what I said.

1. Silver is going parabolic.

According to Jim Rogers all parabolic moves end badly. I have seen similar charts in all kinds of commodities and they always correct. Parabolic charts mark tops. So, when silver bugs start suggesting, “This time it’s different” I know better.

Study the chart below. Ignore the commodity. When charts go parabolic, it ends badly. I was an investor in the 1970s in both gold and silver. I started buying gold at $35 and silver around $5 an ounce. I sold out all my silver in January of 1980 a week too early at $35 as it rocketed to $50.25 an ounce at the open on January 21, 1980. It went parabolic and basically that’s all you need to know.

Nvidia reported earnings last week and the shares continued their rocket launch. Here is a chart of the stock.

Compare the two charts. What I said in my piece from April 25th of 2011 is just as true today. All parabolic moves end badly. Nvidia shares are about to crash.

All those weak hands who were eager to see if they could sell at the very bottom of the gold/silver resource cycle are going to regret being part of the thundering herd.

When Nvidia crashes and Bitcon returns to earth, the direction of money flow will reverse. Bitcon is up 30% in just six weeks. There is nothing in economics that justifies that any more than Newmont dropping 7% in a day.
