About Defiance Silver Corp.:

Defiance is a near term silver producer engaged in the acquisition, exploration, and development of advanced silver projects in the Zacatecas Silver District, Mexico. The Company’s efforts are focused on: 1) the exercising of an option to purchase the San Acacio Mine, 2) the purchase and refurbishment of the 200 tpd Santa Gabriela Mill, and 3) the definition of feed for the Santa Gabriela Mill from surface dumps and from the San Acacio Mine with its 43-101 compliant silver resource (reference Defiance Silver Corp New release dated October 25, 2012).

Disclaimer: Although Defiance is working to bring the Santa Gabriela Mill and the San Acacio Mine back into production, Defiance has not completed a 43-101 compliant Feasibility Study. Hence the project has increased uncertainty and increased economic and technical risks of failure associated with its development.
