Shane revealed the latest drill results from the Madsen mine’s South Austin Zone, intersecting 68.36 g/t Au over 1.1m and 13.83 g/t Au over 3.95m.

Discussing the primary focus on the Madsen mine, once valued at $1 billion, Shane provided insights into the timetable for restarting production and the steps he’s taken to mitigate inflation impacts on project costs.

Following the previous management's inability to acquire profitability, he’s busy capitalizing upon this once in a lifetime opportunity.

He commented on the continued excellent drill results, the strategic challenges ahead, and the catalysts for success. With current gold prices holding strong, Shane is excited by the positive impact on WRLG’s economics as well as the broader industry.

We sat down with Shawn Khunkhun, CEO of Dolly Varden Silver, (🇺🇸DOLLF -- 🇨🇦DV new sponsor) and dove into its unique strategy and recent successes. DV has been hitting high-grade gold and silver, most recently 79.4 g/t gold over 12.35 meters. The results have well exceeded Shawn’s optimistic expectations. The 2024 drilling season is getting off to the earliest start in many years, due to the lack of snow fall in British Columbia. The company will have 3 drills turning and plans for an updated resource estimate at in the future.

It has an attractive capital structure, with a public float of just 8 percent. Interest expressed by major miners and large financial institutions has been increasing together with the price of gold and silver. The company recently raised C$15 million and has enough cash on-hand to meet its obligations for the next two years.

While “Silver” is part of DV’s moniker, Shawn discussed the company’s substantial gold resources, which now equal its silver resources. He believes that Eric Sprott’s $300 silver is a real possibility. With the company selling at just $1 per ounce in the ground, a substantial discount to historic levels of similar companies, that price could increase substantially, which is why we own shares.
