Dolly Varden Silver Files NI 43-101 Technical Report for Kitsault Valley Project

VANCOUVER, BC, April 4, 2023 – Vancouver, BC: Dolly Varden Silver Corporation (TSXV: DV) (OTC: DOLLF (the “Company” or “Dolly Varden“) announced today that it has filed a technical report for its Kitsault Valley Project located in the Kitsault Valley region of British Columbia, entitled “Technical Report On The Combined Kitsault Valley Project, British Columbia, Canada”, and dated effective September 28, 2022 (the “Technical Report”). The Technical Report combines Dolly Varden’s previously separate Dolly Varden silver and gold project and Homestake Ridge gold project and verifies the existing mineral resource estimates making them Current under a single report.

As previously disclosed, in connection with the review of the Company’s preliminary base shelf prospectus, the British Columbia Securities Commission determined that, given the proximity of the Company’s Dolly Varden silver and gold project and recently acquired Homestake Ridge gold project, a single updated technical report covering the combined Kitsault Valley Project was required under the Instrument regulation. The completion of the Technical Report marks the satisfaction of this requirement. The Company will seek removal from the Commission’s list of defaulting issuers as soon as possible.

Dolly Varden further announced today that it has cancelled its previously disclosed investor relations agreement with Gold Standard Medial LLC.
