01:53 PM EDT, 06/06/2018 (MT Newswires) -- Dolly Varden Silver Corporation (DV.V) says diamond drilling has begun on the Dolly Varden Silver Property in "The Golden Triangle" of northwestern British Columbia, Canada. This is part of an approximately 25,000 metres program in 60 to 75 drill holes for 2018.
The first drill rig started last weekend and a second drill rig is anticipated to start on about June 16th. Results of the drilling program will be announced in batches, with assays from the first few drill holes to be released in early July. The 2018 drilling program is designed to focus on resource delineation and verification, particularly in the areas of the new discoveries from the 2017 exploration season. These include Torbrit North, Torbrit East and Moose-Lamb targets, as well as areas around the Torbrit and the Dolly Varden deposits.
