“Dolly Varden Silver’s initial drilling at the Homestake Main Deposit has returned consistent mineralized intervals with some of the highest grades of gold with silver reported from the property to date, but also the entire Golden Triangle during the 2022 drilling season,” said Shawn Khunkhun, President and CEO. “Coupled with the exceptional grades and thicknesses of silver mineralization encountered in step-out holes at the Wolf and Kitsol Deposits, we are demonstrating the impressive precious metal endowment and potential of the Kitsault Valley trend.”
The objective of drilling during 2022 at the Homestake Main and Homestake Silver deposits was to expanded multiple, subparallel mineralized zones and to upgrade Inferred Mineral Resources. A total of 41 holes for 10,472 meters were completed at the Homestake Main Deposit, 12 holes for 6,076 metres were completed at the Homestake Silver Deposit and 3 additional exploration holes for 1,900 metres were completed along the Homestake Ridge Trend during the 2022 season.
