VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 17, 2015) - Discovery Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:DVN)(FRANKFURT:0DV)(OTCQX:DTVMF) ("Discovery") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an amending agreement with the owners of the Willa property (collectively, the "Optionors") to amend the terms of the assignment, assumption, and framework agreement (the "Assignment Agreement") dated April 15, 2014, as amended June 16, 2014, September 26, 2014, and November 26, 2014.

Under the amended Assignment Agreement, Discovery has paid a sum of $130,000 to the Optionors to exercise the option and has acquired a 100% interest in the Willa property, consisting of 5,328 hectares located in the Slocan Mining Division, British Columbia, south of the town of Silverton, B.C., subject to a 2.5% net smelter royalty (the "NSR"). Discovery agreed to pay the Optionors an advance royalty payment, which will be credited against the NSR, of $144,000 each year until Discovery commences commercial production on the Willa property.

"We are pleased to announce this acquisition for our shareholders," said Dan Omeniuk. "Discovery and the Optionors have both reached a favourable agreement to advance to the WillaMAX Project."
