VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/09/14 -- United Silver Corp. (TSX: USC)(OTCQX: USCZF)(FRANKFURT: UM8) (the "Company" or "USC") announces that pursuant to an order of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) dated January 9, 2014, Duff & Phelps Canada Restructuring Inc. was appointed as receiver and manager ("Receiver") of the property, assets and undertaking of USC and the Receiver has been advised that the directors of USC have resigned. The Receiver was appointed pursuant to an application brought by USC's secured creditor, HUSC, LLC ("HUSC").

The Court-supervised receivership is also expected to provide a mechanism to address the Company's short term liquidity requirements. HUSC has indicated that it intends to foreclose on the assets of USC's operating subsidiaries, which are not subject to the receivership proceedings, in accordance with security agreements granted previously by the subsidiaries to HUSC in 2012.
