Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 4, 2023) – IMPACT Silver Corp. (TSXV: IPT) (OTC Pink: ISVLF) (FSE: IKL) (“IMPACT” or the “Company”) announces the completion its’ 2022 Royal Mines of Zacualpan area surface exploration drill program in central Mexico. Significant results for the last sets of assays for 2022 were returned from greenfields targets at La Luz and San Antonio. The drilling was carried out with IMPACT’s man portable hydraulic surface diamond drill rigs.
The historic La Luz mine is located to the west and along strike of the Pachuqueno mine workings in IMPACT’s operating Guadalupe Mine and also hosts a northeast trending vein, both of which were tested by sixteen surface drill holes. Significant results from La Luz are listed below.
|HOLE No.||FROM (m)||TO (m)||INTERVAL (m)||TRUE WIDTH (m)||Ag_g/t||Au_g/t||Pb_%||Zn_%|
|Z22-24||8.40||10.10||1.70||True Widths TBD||227.18||0.02||0.17||0.21|
|Z22-32||26.55||28.23||1.68||True Widths TBD||239.48||0.02||0.03||0.06|
The San Antonio Zinc vein system is located 4km southeast of IMPACT’s operating Guadalupe Processing Plant and on trend with the Cuchara mine vein system. The increase in the zinc price led to testing the extent and continuity of San Antonio’s known mineralized system which was last explored in 2007. A total of seventeen holes were drilled to test the system at depth and along strike of historic mine workings and previous drilling.
Significant San Antonio zinc results are listed below.

The Company’s decision to place a mine into production, expand a mine, make other production related decisions or otherwise carry out mining and processing operations, is largely based on internal non-public Company data and reports based on exploration, development and mining work by the Company’s geologists and engineers. The results of this work are evident in the discovery and building of multiple mines for the Company and in the track record of mineral production and financial returns of the Company since 2006. Under NI 43-101 the Company is required to disclose that it has not based its production decisions on NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource or reserve estimates, preliminary economic assessments or feasibility studies, and historically such projects have increased uncertainty and risk of failure.
