Discovery Ventures - MAX Mill Improvements Underway

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 23, 2014) - Discovery Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:DVN)(FRANKFURT:0DV) ("Discovery" or the "Company"), announces it has engaged Sundown Holdings Inc. (Sundown) of Kelowna, BC, to commence various maintenance and upgrades to the MAX Mill. Sundown was the original contractor who moved and constructed the mill in 2006 and 2007. Sundown also assisted during operations at MAX by providing millwrights and operators to FortyTwo Metals Inc. During that period the mill demonstrated high availability, in excess of 97% to the operation, a testament to its successful re-construction at MAX.

The MAX mill, camps and offices have been on care and maintenance since the end of 2011 and Sundown's scope of work initially includes repairing and renovating some of the structures that have suffered roof damage since that time. Other tasks include repairs and basic modifications to some of the systems in the plant as preparation for a larger package of modifications planned to be done in 2015. No production will commence during this time.
