Ms. Roskowski’s skills at evaluating large exploration datasets will be invaluable in the synthesis of the considerable database of work at the San Acacio and Tepal projects.

Mr. George Cavey stated, “We are excited by the opportunity to work with the team at Defiance Silver and to help design the next phase of development at the San Acacio silver project. San Acacio is a well-established project with excellent discovery potential, as demonstrated by the ongoing developments at Capstone Mining’s neighboring Cozamin project. We look forward to employing the methods that led to the discovery of the Martha Vein system at the La Preciosa silver deposit to the robust silver vein system at San Acacio.”
