The Company has two strategies for creating value at Dolly Varden: to confirm and expand the existing historic silver resources with the goal to re-start historic mines; and to explore a major untested Eskay Creek-type gold and silver target at Dolly Varden. The Company is based in Vancouver, British Columbia and its shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol DV.
