Defiance Silver Corp ("Defiance") is pleased to announce the start of a 1,500m drill program on the San Acacio silver deposit in the historic Zacatecas Silver District in Mexico. The drill program is focused on expanding the current resource of 17.9 million oz AgEq contained in 2.902 mt grading 192.5 g/t AgEq (See News Release dated January 15, 2015). Drilling will build upon the recent discovery of significant silver and base metal mineralization below the limits of the current resource. The focus continues to be on the lowest risk/highest reward portion of the exploration potential at San Acacio by drilling along the 1.0 kilometer of old workings. Mineralization is open both to depth and along strike.
Bruce Winfield, President and CEO of Defiance stated, "We are very excited to be drilling again and look forward to further expanding the wide zones of high grade mineralization we intercepted earlier in the year".
