Impact Announces Third Consecutive Profitable Quarter
|IMPACT Silver Corp. (IPT:TSX.V) ("the Company") is pleased to announce its results for the quarter ended September 30, 2006. The Company's consolidated financial statements include the results of Royal Mines of Zacualpan Project ("Zacualpan") that was purchased on January 16, 2006 and assumed production on January 18, 2006. For the quarter, the Company's net revenues were $1,872,595 and Zacualpan had an operating profit of $546,959 up from $480,820 in the second quarter.|
The Company's first full day of production was January 18, 2006. Average mill throughput in the year to date was 192 tpd. Total tonnes mined since January 18 until the end of the year are forecast at approximately 67,000 tonnes or 15,000 tonnes (29%) more that the previous year's production. On site operating costs were approximately Cdn. $54.00 per ton in the third quarter.
The Company's expansion and development program continued throughout the quarter with the development of a number of new working faces as well as the accessing of some historic mining stopes. These developments once again led to a significant portion of the material processed consisting of development muck. Over the next six to nine months, the Company anticipates that development muck will continue to cause fluctuating mill grades as workings are added.
Fred Davidson, President stated, "We are pleased to report another profitable quarter while continuing substantial development and modernization work that is necessary for sustained production growth in the coming years. Very few companies our size have accomplished as much as we have in such a short time. It has been an extremely busy and successful nine months."
