Discovery Ventures and Roca Mines Announce Partial Payment and Extension of Payment Terms with Respect to Acquisition of Max Mine and Mill from Roca Mines

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/08/14 -- Discovery Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE: DVN) ("Discovery") and Roca Mines Inc. ("Roca") are pleased to announce they have amended the letter agreement dated November 4, 2013 (the "Agreement") with Roca and FortyTwo Metals Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Roca ("FortyTwo"). Pursuant to the original letter agreement, Roca granted an exclusive option to Discovery to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of FortyTwo. FortyTwo holds, among other assets, the Max Mine which includes an underground molybdenum mine, crushing, milling and concentrating facilities, tailings storage facilities, mineral claims, mining leases, licenses and other holdings located near Trout Lake in the Revelstoke mining division of the Province of British Columbia. The Max Mine is located approximately 135 kilometres from Discovery's Willa Project and is a formerly producing molybdenum mine that operated from 2007 until November 2011 when depressed metal prices led to its closure.

Discovery has exercised the first stage of the option and is working towards the exercise of the second stage of the option. Originally, the Agreement required that Discovery pay $950,000 to Roca on or prior to January 5, 2014, following which the second stage of the option would be deemed exercised and Roca would transfer an additional 19% of the share capital of FortyTwo to Discovery.

Pursuant to the amendments, the parties agreed to restructure the second stage of the option. As a result, Discovery is required to pay $250,000 to Roca on or prior to January 8, 2014 and pay the remaining $700,000 for the second stage of the option to Roca on or prior to March 6, 2014, following which the second stage of the option will be deemed exercised.

Akash Patel, President and Director, Discovery Ventures Inc.
