VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 10, 2012) - Defiance Silver Corp ("Defiance") (TSX VENTURE:DEF) announces that the terms of the non-brokered private placement ("the Offering") announced on June 6, 2012 have been revised. Under the new terms Defiance will offer up to 2,500,000 units ("Units") at a price of $0.20 per Unit for gross proceeds of $500,000. The Offering is subject to an overallotment option whereby the Offering may be increased by up to 50%.
Defiance is also pleased to announce that it has closed the first tranche of its amended private placement with the issuance of 2,741,500 units at a price of $0.20 per Unit for gross proceeds of $548,300. These units are subject to a four month hold period expiring four months from the date of issue. Defiance management and directors have subscribed for a total of 678,500 Units; and IMPACT Silver Corp. (Defiance's single largest shareholder) acquired 452,000 Units.
Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company, one full common share purchase warrant ("Warrant") and one Silver Participation Right ("SPR"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company for a period of 12 months at a price of $0.40 per share. Each Silver Participation Right will entitle the holder to receive 0.003 ounces of silver bullion or the equivalent value in Canadian dollars (being C$0.09 based on a C$30 per ounce silver price) from the Company's future silver production.
