Defiance Secures Surface Rights at San Acacio

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - August 23, 2016) - Defiance Silver Corp (TSXV: DEF) (OTC: DNCVF) ("Defiance") is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with the Fraccionamiento Rural Sauceda de la Borda that grants Defiance rights to carry out exploration within all of its mineral concessions underlying the Fraccionamiento lands. Defiance now controls surface rights covering both the 1.2km of vein strike length that hosts the San Acacio deposit along with over 4.4 km of vein that has yet to see modern exploration.

"We are very pleased to have been able to conclude this agreement with the members of the community. Our success in continuing to acquire agreements for surface access rights demonstrates the support we have with the local land owners at San Acacio." stated Bruce Winfield, President and CEO of Defiance. "With this agreement in place, we can now plan to not only continue our exploration efforts at depth but also to aggressively step out along the strike of the vein."

The agreement is for an initial term of five years which can be renewed for an additional five year term at the election of Defiance.
