Gary Cope, President and CEO of Dolly Varden Silver, talks about the company’s increased drill program on their property.
We like to call Dolly Varden “the silver lining of the Golden Triangle” because it’s a silver story. For some reason in the southern end, at least in our southern part of our property, you’re looking at anywhere from three to five hundred grams per tonne of silver. The existing resource is about 32,000 indicated and another 10,000 in inferred, for forty two thousand total. It’s the area of northern British Columbia has sort of became to be known by Pretivm you know the exciting new discovery now a mine. We’re planning to get on the ground when the snow melts. We have a very increased drill program which will produce fifteen to twenty five thousand meters of drilling. We bring our supplies in by barge with our camps right at the end of the inlet and saltwater and then we have a twenty six kilometer road up to where we go from helicopter for the drilling. We have a power project on the lake, there’s a village across the inlet with power. We’ve signed three or four CA’s and with the new discoveries we made last summer have gotten serious attention from some of the silver miners. Additionally, we’ve have a very, very good working relationship with Anishka. We meet with them every year, they’re very progressive and very positive towards the project.
Dolly Varden Silver (TSX.V:DV) is a Canadian-based mineral exploration company focused on the Dolly Varden silver properties located in Northwestern, British Columbia, Canada. The Dolly Varden Silver properties comprise 8,800 hectares (88 km2 ) and are located 25km by road from the deep tide water port town of Alice Arm. The property’s four historic deposits, mined in the 1920’s and 1950’s, are hosted in stratigraphy that is analogous to Barrick’s Eskay Creek and Pretium’s Brucejack deposits. The Company is focused both on the expansion of high-grade silver-base metal resources at the historic mines and on exploring the remainder of the property, which shows great potential for hosting further deposits.
