Discovery Ventures Inc.-Willa Permit Received

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 24, 2014) - Discovery Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:DVN)(FRANKFURT:ODV) ("Discovery" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that it is in receipt of Mines Act Permit MX-5-786, approved by the Ministry of Energy and Mines, to undertake its planned underground sampling and mapping activities at the Willa Project, near Silverton, BC.

Willa Underground Exploration Program 2014

The Company will conduct an underground percussion drilling campaign to collect new samples from the Willa resource. The drilling will be used to composite a metallurgical sample that will be further processed such that a final tailings product can be geochemically characterized in the lab. The results of the tailings characterization studies will be presented in future studies and applications for the proposed WillaMAX project and will form an important part of future planning.

Access to the Willa development has been intentionally blocked since 2005 and re-entering the underground workings will provide an opportunity for the Company and its consultant to verify current ground conditions. While these are assumed to be excellent based on historical information, a geotechnical review will also be completed during this program.
