Dolly Varden Silver Corporation announces the appointment of Allan Marter as an independent director of the Company.
DVSC is focused on the exploration and development of the Dolly Varden silver project located in northwestern British Columbia. This project is a past-producing silver mine with historic resources and is situated in the same geologic setting as the past-producing Eskay Creek deposit.

Mr. Marter recently stepped down as a director of Minera Andes Inc., following that company's merger with US Gold Corporation.

He served as president of the Northwest Mining Association in 1993.
