Dolly Varden Silver Intersects 1.50m of 1,367 g/t Ag within 12.51 meters Grading 442 g/t Ag at Kitsol Vein

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 7, 2022) – Dolly Varden Silver Corporation (TSXV: DV) (OTCQX: DOLLF) (the “Company” or “Dolly Varden“) is pleased to announce results from drilling at the Torbrit Resource area, including infill and step-out drilling within the Kitsol Vein zone.

The high-grade, potentially bulk-mineable Kitsol Vein continued to deliver outstanding, contiguous silver and base metal mineralization, where DV22-291 intersected 12.51m (8.88m true width) averaging 442 g/t Ag, 0.68% Pb and 0.42% Zn, including of 1,367 g/t Ag over 1.50m (1.07m true width), as an up-dip infill hole from previous high-grade intercepts.

Highlights include:

  • DV22-289: 979 g/t Ag over 0.49 meters true width, step out at Torbrit Main
  • DV22-291: 442 g/t Ag over 8.88 meters true width, infill at Kitsol
  • DV22-298: 372 g/t Ag over 10.78 meters true width, up-dip extension at Kitsol
  • DV22-308: 297 g/t Ag over 6.59 meters true width, step out at Torbrit Main
  • DV22-312: 585 g/t Ag over 3.30 meters true width, step out at Torbrit Main

“In addition to discovery-focused exploration drilling, Dolly Varden Silver has been prioritizing resource expansion and upgrading at the Torbrit/Kitsol, Wolf, Homestake Main and Homestake Silver deposits. We continue to encounter wide, potentially bulk-mineable vein-hosted silver mineralization at Kitsol, and expect to announce significant drill results from the other resource areas in the next few weeks,” said Shawn, Khunkhun, President and CEO.

The 2022 exploration drill program on the Kitsault Valley trend has completed 37,061m in 108 drill holes. Drilling wrapped up in mid-October, with the majority of assays still pending. Additionally, ground geophysics, surface mapping and prospecting work were completed, evaluating historic prospects and identifying new silver and gold occurrences.

Torbrit Main and North Deposits consist of distinctive stratabound silver mineralization associated with a high potassium and coincident sodium depletion alteration signature. Layers consist of red jasper with bladed crystal growths after barite later replaced by silica. Relatively quick capping of the system by volcanic activity caused an overprinting of epithermal brecciation and veining which further augmented the silver grades within the deposit area.

The main focus of Torbrit step out drilling at the Torbrit Main Deposit targeted the southern limits of the current Mineral Resource. Drill holes were oriented to step-out from, as well as infill areas of modelled inferred resources (see Figure 3). The Torbrit horizon was intersected in all expansion holes; future infill drilling programs will target high grade shoots within the lower grade horizon, which were commonly encountered in historic mining at the Torbrit, Wolf and Dolly Varden deposits.

The Kitsol Vein is considered part of the epithermal, structurally controlled system that over printed the stratabound layers. Mineralization consists of pyrargerite (ruby silver), argentite and native silver in a silica breccia vein system. The northeast/southwest orientation of the vein and nature of the high grade silver plunge is similar to what is developing at the Wolf deposit 1.4km to the north (see figure 2).

Drilling during the 2022 season at Kitsol has encountered wide, high grade silver mineralization, commonly with overprinting high-grade vein shoots within wide vein sets. Previously reported step-out drill hole DV22-283 that intersected 50.18m (~30.0m true width) averaging 414 g/t Ag (see news release August 10, 2022) suggest multiple high-grade, steeply plunging yet wide silver shoots that extend to surface, as demonstrated by up-dip hole DV22-298 which intersected 21.55m (10.78m true width) grading 372 g/t Ag (see Figure 5). Additional results from step-out drill holes testing deeper, down plunge mineralization from DV22-283 at the Kitsol Vein are pending.

Dolly Varden Silver Mobilizes Three Drill Rigs to Commence an Initial 30,000 Meters of Resource Expansion, Upgrade and Exploration Drilling

VANCOUVER, BC, May 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Dolly Varden Silver Corporation (TSXV: DV) (OTC: DOLLF) (the “Company” or “Dolly Varden“) is pleased to announce the initiation of field activities on its Kitsault Valley Project, located near tidewater in northwest British Columbia. Objectives of the 2022 Program include: upgrade current Inferred Mineral Resources to Measured and Indicated classification, expand known deposits and to discover new silver and gold mineralization along the Kitsault Valley trend of multiple deposits and historic mines.

Shawn Khunkhun, President and CEO comments, “With a robust $25 million treasury, a discovery-focused technical team and a target-rich environment, 2022 is setting up to be an historic year for Dolly Varden Silver. With strategic and technical input from our supportive corporate shareholder: Hecla Mining, it is our goal to make new silver and gold discoveries as well as to dramatically grow and upgrade resource at our current deposits, setting the Company up to be the next development Project in the Golden Triangle.”

Three diamond drill rigs are being mobilized by barge to the village of Alice Arm to complete an initial 99 drill holes Program totaling 30,000 meters along the Kitsault Valley Trend. Camp expansion and infrastructure upgrades are underway to accommodate our expanded exploration team, with a significant contingent of team members of the Nisga’a Nation.

Dolly Varden’s Kitsault Valley Project currently hosts Indicated Resources of 34.7 million ounces of silver and 166 thousand ounces of gold with additional Inferred Resources of 29.3 million ounces of silver and 817 thousand ounces of gold within multiple outcropping deposits in the 163 square kilometer Property. Resource upgrade and expansion drilling will begin at the Torbrit silver deposit, initially targeting step-outs at the Wolf Mine and between the Torbrit and North Star silver Deposits.

In late spring, drilling will commence at the Homestake Main and Homestake Silver deposits with the purpose of expanding mineralization along strike and down-dip as well upgrading current Inferred Resources.

Through integration of excellent detailed geological mapping integrated with innovative geochemical, geophysical and remote sensing methods, Dolly Varden’s strong technical team has identified new greenfield target areas along the Kitsault Valley trend. Additional surface mapping and sampling coupled with IP geophysical surveys will help refine drill targets to be tested during the 2022 Program. Twenty exploration targets have been initially identified, eight of which have been classified as Priority 1.

Dolly Varden Silver Intersects 1,532 g/t Silver over 1.22 Meters at Wolf Vein, 94 Meters Down Dip

VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Dolly Varden Silver Corporation (“Dolly Varden” or the “Company“) (TSXV: DV) (OTC: DOLLF), is pleased to announce drill results from regional exploration and reconnaissance drilling at its 100%-owned Dolly Varden Project located near tidewater in northwestern British Columbia, with particularly encouraging results from the Wolf Vein, as well as the identification of large, new porphyry related copper-gold system.

At the Wolf Deposit, drill hole DV21-273 tested the southwest projection of the Wolf Vein, 94m down plunge from the current Mineral Resources, intersecting 1,532 g/t Ag, 0.44 g/t Au, 2.11 % Pb and 1.07% Zn over 1.22m core length within a brecciated sulphide-rich quartz vein hosted within a broader pyrite stockwork breccia zone of 17.50m averaging 214 g/t Ag and 0.47% Pb. The current NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate hosts 3.83 million ounces of silver at 296 g/t in the Indicated category at Wolf. It is located approximately two kilometers northwest of the 25.0 million ounces of silver in the Indicated Category and additional 10.5 million ounces of silver in the Inferred category at Dolly Varden’s Torbrit Deposit.

In other regional exploration drilling, Dolly Varden’s technical team is highly encouraged by long intervals of stockwork quartz with strongly anomalous gold (>100 ppb) over wide intervals (up to 303 meters) along with silver and copper at the Western Gold Belt Area. Hosted within early Jurassic volcanic rocks, this style of stockwork and alteration is analogous to numerous alkalic gold-copper deposits and mines in British Columbia. The Company plans appropriate geophysical surveys for porphyry-style mineralization and subsequent follow-up drilling in this area.

“This high-grade silver intercept at Wolf demonstrates the excellent exploration and resource expansion potential on the Property. The next phase of exploration drilling will prioritize connecting our historic mines and current deposits of the Dolly Varden Trend with the deposits at Homestake 5.4km to the northwest along the Kitsault Valley Trend that comprise the recently announced proposed acquisition from Fury Gold Mines,” said Shawn Khunkhun, CEO of Dolly Varden Silver. “Additionally, the strong indicator of porphyry related gold-copper-silver style indicators potentially the most significant exploration breakthrough on the Property in years”.

A total of 10,506m in 31 diamond drill holes were completed at Dolly Varden during the 2021 field season. Results have been received for 10 holes that tested five regional exploration targets on the Property including the Wolf Vein extension and Western Gold-Copper Belt. Assays will be announced in the near future for the 21 holes completed at the high-grade Torbrit and Kitsol Silver Deposits. The 21 near-Resource holes were drilled as part of a two phase program with the objective of expanding Resources as well as upgrading current Inferred Resources to Measured and Indicated Classification.

The 2021 drilling at Dolly Varden initiated the Company’s two-year strategy to aggressively expand and upgrade the Torbrit Silver Deposit and multiple satellite zones with the objective of advancing Dolly Varden to be the next high-grade silver mine in British Columbia.

Hole DV21-273 is also significant as it tested the prospective Hazelton volcanic rock that underlies the sedimentary units of the Upper Hazelton for the Wolf Vein extension. Discovering that the strong potassic alteration associated with silver mineralization within the volcanogenic Torbrit Deposit continues beneath the sediment suggests that the mineralizing system continues to the west of the 4.5 km long surface alteration anomaly. This opens up exploration potential of the entire bottom of the Kitsault valley north of Wolf towards the Property boundary and onto Homestake Ridge.

“Intercepting silver mineralization associated with potassic alteration in the older volcanic rocks underneath the sediment package within the fold axis of a regional syncline gives our team further reason to drill test several geophysical anomalies identified along the northerly trend towards the deposits at Homestake Ridge”, explained Rob van Egmond, Chief Geologist for Dolly Varden Silver.

Wolf is the northernmost deposit that comprises the current Mineral Resources at the Dolly Varden Project. Modelling of the epithermal vein style deposit indicates a stepped vein system, offset by steep faults. The hanging wall of the deposit has strong barium signature and the veins contain barite and quartz. There are historic underground drifts at Wolf but no historic production was reported.

Western Gold-Copper Belt

On the Western side of the Kitsault Valley, three holes (DV21-267, 268 and 269) tested the Red Point target with structures related to a gold in soil anomaly within the southern end of the Western Gold belt quartz, sericite, pyrite (QSP) alteration zone. Drilling intercepted wide zones of stockwork veins with strongly anomalous gold, silver and copper mineralization within Hazelton volcanic rocks. Proximal to intrusive rocks, this wide zone mineralization is analogous to other alkalic copper-gold porphyry related systems in British Columbia. In the Golden Triangle, these deposits include KSM, Treaty Creek, Saddle (GT Gold), Red Chris and Snowfield.

This Western Gold Belt is located on the west side of the Kitsault valley and trends from near the Dolly Varden Mine northward for several kilometers towards Homestake Ridge. Intrusive-related QSP alteration is associated with zones of increased silica stockwork and multi-phased breccias with pyritic matrix. This style of alteration, mineralization and brecciation is also common at other higher grade deposits in the Golden Triangle, including Homestake Ridge and Ascot’s past-producing Premier and Big Missouri mines, as well as Goliath Resource’s recent discoveries west of Dolly Varden.

Medallion

Three holes were completed at the Medallion Prospect (DV21-264, 265 and 266) located at the southern end of the Project. Historic trenches and small adits explored narrow zones of veining within weakly altered volcanic rocks hosting silver, copper lead and zinc mineralization. No significant results were returned.

Syndicate

Diamond drill holes DV21-270 and 271 were drilled from the same setup as Medallion to test the Syndicate Target. A near-surface vein in DV21-270 returned 126 g/t Ag and 1.31 g/t Au over a core length of 1.10m.

About Dolly Varden Silver Corporation

Dolly Varden Silver Corporation is a mineral exploration company focused on exploration in northwestern British Columbia. The Dolly Varden Project consists of the namesake Dolly Varden silver property that hosts a unique pure silver mineral resource as well as the nearby Big Bulk copper-gold porphyry property. The Dolly Varden Project is considered to be highly prospective for hosting high-grade precious metal deposits, since it comprises the same structural and stratigraphic setting that host numerous other high-grade deposits (Eskay Creek, Brucejack).

Dolly Varden has recently entered into an agreement with Fury Gold Mines to acquire the Homestake Ridge Project adjacent to the current Dolly Varden property to consolidate the Kitsault Valley Gold-Silver mineralization trend into one large, high-grade precious metals project with further exploration upside potential. The Big Bulk property is prospective for porphyry and skarn style copper and gold mineralization similar to other such deposits in the region (Red Mountain, KSM, Red Chris).
