Defiance Silver Corp. (“Defiance”) is pleased to announce the commencement of a Phase II, 5,000 meter drill program targeting new high-grade silver shoots along a 900m section of the Veta Grande vein located southeast of the San Acacio Silver Deposit in Zacatecas, Mexico.
“We are excited to begin the first systematic drill program testing the Veta Grande vein east of San Acacio. Our geological model indicates that with the Veta Grande tilting to the south east, historic miners did not recognize the potential of the vein along strike. If our model is correct, we could dramatically expand the district’s silver footprint. With two diamond drills operating, we look forward to a steady flow of drill results over the next three months.” stated Roy Bonnell, President and CEO of Defiance Silver Corp.
