Defiance Initiates Trial Regarding The Illegal Transfer Of Mining Concessions And Obtains Precautionary Measures To Protect Its Rights

October 27th, 2022

Vancouver, British Columbia - Defiance Silver Corp. (“Defiance” or the “Company”) announces that the case initiated against the illegally and fraudulently transferred mineral concessions concerning its Tepal Project has been admitted for trial by a District Court in Michoacán, Mexico. An evidence hearing will be scheduled shortly.

It was further ordered to “stay” the mineral concessions until the trial concludes and a final judgment is rendered. This order protects Defiance from any attempt to dispose of the mineral concessions and preserves the matter of the trial.

The Mexican Mining Public Registry has been duly informed and notified of the above.

The aforementioned orders allow the early conclusion that District Court will eventually rule in favor of Defiance, restoring its rightful ownership of the Mining Concessions. Defiance has a substantial likelihood of success on the merits. Mexican Law, Mexican Precedents, and Mexican Courts are consistent in declaring null and void illegal transfers made fraudulently.
