Dolly Varden Buys Homestake Ridge From Fury
Contributed Opinion

Bob Moriarty Bob Moriarty of 321 Gold shares his thoughts on Dolly Varden Silver Corp.'s Dec. 6 news of its planned acquisition of the Homestake Ridge gold/silver project from Fury Gold Mines Ltd.

Sometimes two plus two equals five. Or even six.

Gold and silver are dropping. Resource stocks are in the tank due to Tax Loss Silly Season and investors are throwing in the towel as they snarl on very resource chat boards about how stupid owning gold and silver stocks are.

It reminds me of late 2008 and 2015. Same sort of hopeless feeling as you know your shares will never ever climb again. Why didn’t I sell when I had the chance? Need I remind investors just what happened in 2009 and 2016? You could throw darts blindfolded in a dark room at a two-inch dartboard of stocks and have every dart hit a bull’s eye.

Stocks go up and stocks go down. Right now they are going down. Very soon they will go up and all will be right with the world.

Dolly Varden Silver Corp. (DV:TSX.V; DOLLF:OTCQX) has a major silver project located in the historic Dolly Varden silver district in Northwest BC. The Dolly Varden property package consists of an 88 square km block with 44 million ounces of silver between 277 ad 300 g/t Ag. Dolly owns 100% of the project.

On December 6, 2021, Dolly Varden and Fury Gold Mines Ltd. (FURY-T) announced a proposed purchase by Dolly Varden of the Homestake Ridge gold/silver project from Fury.

Dolly would be paying a total of $50 million with $5 million in cash and the remainder in shares of DV. When the transaction is complete Fury would own 36.9% of DV. They would be adding just short of a million ounces of gold to the venture and slightly over 19 million ounces of silver.

In my view, this is a case of two plus two being equal to five.

The projects adjoin and the combined package has to be very attractive to a prospective suitor. The combined land package is 163 square km and costs will be shared across the two land properties.

Fury management has their shares tied up for three years which means they have a lot of confidence in:
