Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 31, 2022) –( ) (OTCQX: DNCVF) (FSE: D4E) (“Defiance” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has recommenced drilling at the company’s Zacatecas project in Mexico. The current drill program, which is focused on the Lucita license area, began in early November and recommenced in January after a three-week hiatus.
The current drill program is designed to expand on the successful 7,800 metre oriented core diamond drill campaign completed in June 2021 at the San Acacio/Veta Grande resource area (see News Releases dated April 28th, 2021 and September 7th, 2021). The 2020-2021 drill campaign at San Acacio was successful in identifying subtle structural controls of mineralizing events and delivered the highest-grade results the company has drilled to date at San Acacio. Results from the 2020-2021 phase of drilling in the Veta Grande resource area successfully demonstrated the down-dip and lateral continuity of the mineralized Veta Grande vein system below the current resource estimate. The oriented core data from the past phase of drilling is being analyzed with the goal of defining controlling structures and their relationship to grade distribution.
In early November 2021, the company commenced the first-ever regional drill program on the central Lucita land package (see News Release dated October 1st, 2021). To date, the company has completed over 3,000 metres of regional drilling at the central Lucita land package. The company is planning approximately 4,500 metres of first-pass drilling at Tahuares and the central Lucita land package. Following the completion of first phase regional drilling and the return of drill assay results, the company will conduct a technical review in order to plan follow up drill targets. The general exploration program in Zacatecas in 2022 will focus on testing prospective regional targets at Lucita, Tahuares, and Veta Grande, as well as follow-up drilling on the successful 2020-2021 campaign at the historical San Acacio mine and Veta Grande resource area.
Alongside the ongoing exploration program, underground engineering work is underway with an objective of establishing safe and secure underground access in the extensive underground mine infrastructure at San Acacio.

Chris Wright, Executive Chairman & CEO, commented: “Over the past year, we have been able to deliver successful and consistent drill results, which demonstrates the strength of our technical team’s ability to generate new targets from the ongoing exploration work at our Zacatecas project. We are pleased that drilling is now underway on the Lucita and Tahuares land packages, testing mapped vein targets that have never been drilled. Once first pass drilling is complete at Lucita, we will move the drill to follow up on last season’s successful Veta Grande drill program.”
