Dolly Varden Silver Corp. (TSXV:DV,OTCBB:DOLLF) announced the completion of the preliminary surface phase of its 2014 summer field program.

The company has also sent out drill crews to prepare for the upcoming drill program on its British Columbia-based Dolly Varden property.

As quoted in the press release:

The field program involved a geochemical survey where 970 soils, 28 silts, and 6 heavy mineral samples were collected over selected areas on the property. Highlights of the results from the soil surveys include:

  • The surface trace of the DVT Horizon, the horizon which hosts the high-grade silver mineralization at the Torbrit and Dolly Varden mines, is clearly indicated by the soil surveys and this technique can be confidently used to search for extensions of the DVT Horizon.
  • Numerous promising multi-element anomalous trends were located along the prospective sediment-volcanic contact of the Salmon River Formation in areas with no previously known showings. These anomalous trends display similar geochemical signatures to those found at Eskay Creek, and remain open to the north of the sampled area.
  • Strong geochemical response within the airborne radiometric anomaly that has been outlined on the east side of the Kitsault River is outlining some possibly significant trends that could be related to structurally controlled epithermal mineralization.
  • Anomalous gold – silver results from silt samples taken north of the gridded area underlain by Salmon River Formation points to additional potential on the northern portion of the property.
