Since the first day of production in 2006, IMPACT Silver has aspired to develop a mining company that is focused on generating consistent profits through the operation of multiple mines feeding multiple processing plants throughout the Company's expansive land package. This is IMPACT Silver's long term growth strategy in building a profitable, mid-tier, multimillion ounce silver producing company.
IMPACT Silver has a portfolio of advanced projects encompassing a 623 square kilometer (62,300 hectare) land package located approximately three hours southwest of Mexico City. IMPACT Silver controls two large mineral districts within a 100%-owned contiguous land package; the 423 square kilometer Royal Mines of Zacualpan Silver District and the 200 square kilometer Capire Silver District, as well as a number of concessions in the northern Zacatecas Silver District.
Royal Mines of Zacualpan Silver District
San Ramon Mine, Noche Buena Mine, Cuchara-Oscar Mine
In the Royal Mines of Zacualpan District ("Zacualpan") IMPACT Silver has three producing silver mines that feed the central 500 tonnes-per-day ("tpd") Guadalupe Processing Plant. The producing San Ramon Mine, Noche Buena Mine and Cuchara-Oscar Mine are underground mines that have been discovered by the IMPACT Silver exploration team and advanced into profitable production.

Capire Silver District
The open-pit Capire Mine is IMPACT's first open-pit mine and represents new mining operations in a new mineral district. Production at the Capire Mine is beginning with a 200 tpd pilot plant to optimize mining and processing parameters toward planning for a larger operation in the future. With operations commencing at Capire in March of 2013, this represents a new silver production centre and the next significant phase of growth for the company that, upon successful completion of the exploration and development program, could propel IMPACT to become a multimillion ounce silver producer.

ExplorationValle de Oro Subdistrict
IMPACT Silver's exploration activities have recently uncovered a potential zone of gold rich mineralization within the Zacualpan District. Valle de Oro, the Spanish translation of 'Golden Valley', is located 9.5 kilometers south of the central Guadalupe Processing Plant in the Zacualpan District. This large valley covers several gold rich veins, upon which recent drill results indicate may be a continuous zone of gold mineralization. The major structure in Valle de Oro is the Huatecosco Vein, which strikes northwesterly and is thought to be the longest and most dominant vein in the area, having an inferred strike length in excess of 16 kilometers. IMPACT Silver is aggressively continuing drilling on the Huatecosco Vein and the nearby Carlos Pacheco Vein to discover the unrealized potential of a gold district lying at depths of 1,000 feet (300 meters) below the Zacualpan Silver District.

Zacatecas Silver DistrictVeta Grande Silver Project
In 2011, IMPACT Silver optioned its Veta Grande Silver Project, consisting of ten mineral concessions and a 200 tpd processing plant, to Defiance Silver Corp (TSX-V: DEF) for cash and a major share position. The Veta Grande Silver Project in the Zacatecas Silver District is located 500 kilometers northwest of Mexico City, and is accessible by paved highways, with good infrastructure, electric power and a trained workforce. Defiance Silver is a near-term silver producer, with plans to move the Company's core asset, the San Acacio Mine, into production.
