Defiance Pushes San Acacio Payments to 2018

April 21st, 2016

Defiance Silver Corp. (“Defiance”) is pleased to announce that it has renegotiated its San Acacio Silver Project purchase agreement, postponing a substantial amount of the payments due in 2016 to September 27, 2018. The postponed payments total US$300,000. In addition, the property vendor has agreed to review the 2017 payment schedule at the beginning of next year with consideration given to the state of both the TSX and the underlying silver market.

Prior to the renegotiation, Defiance had to make payments totaling US$450,000 in 2016. Now, Defiance will be making four quarterly payments of US$37,500 totaling US$150,000 instead.

“The San Acacio project vendor has been willing to renegotiate the purchase agreement on multiple occasions in the past, providing Defiance with the flexibility to prosper throughout this difficult market and to maximize the allocation of its treasury toward the advancement of the project instead of property payments. Defiance plans to use this additional financial flexibility in 2016 to explore and expand the existing resource at the San Acacio Silver Project”, stated Bruce Winfield President and CEO.
