IMPACT Silver Corp. (“IMPACT” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the discovery of a new zone at the San Ramon Mine, the San Ramon South Zone, at the Royal Mines of Zacualpan District, central Mexico.
Initial drill holes intersected high-grade silver from surface drilling located 50m to the south and 150m up dip from previous underground mining and drilling at the San Ramon Mine. A total of 3,726m of drilling in 14 holes has been completed in the San Ramon South area with IMPACT’s recently purchased surface diamond drill rig. The zone remains open up dip and to the south along strike for further extension. Drill highlights received to date from this new zone are as follows:
The San Ramon Mine is located five kilometers southeast of IMPACT’s central Guadalupe processing plant in the Royal Mines of Zacualpan District of central Mexico. It commenced production in 2008 on the San Ramon Upper Zone and in 2014 on the San Ramon Deeps Zone discovered at depth, together averaging 20-30% of IMPACT’s total quarterly production for the last decade and half. In total, mining has occurred on 29 working levels on three subparallel vein systems. Known mineralization over the total San Ramon workings has a down dip length of 430m and a strike length of 500m. It remains open for expansion and additional drilling is in progress. A vertical long section through the San Ramon mine and drill holes is attached to this news release or can be viewed on the company website at www.IMPACTSilver.com.

ABOUT IMPACT SILVER
IMPACT Silver Corp. is a successful silver-gold explorer-producer with two processing plants on adjacent districts within its 100% owned mineral concessions covering 211km2 in central Mexico with excellent infrastructure and labor force. Over the past 15 years, IMPACT has produced over 11.2 million ounces of silver, generating revenues of over $220 million, with no long-term debt. At the Royal Mines of Zacualpan Silver District, three underground silver mines and one open pit mine feed the central Guadalupe processing plant. To the south, in the Mamatla District, the Capire Project includes a 200 tpd processing pilot plant adjacent to an open pit silver mine with a mineral resource of over 4.5 million oz silver, 48 million lbs zinc and 21 million lbs lead (see IMPACT news release dated January 18, 2016 for details). Company engineers are reviewing Capire for potential restart of operations in light of current elevated silver prices. With 16 years of exploration successes leading to production cash flows, IMPACT has shown the Zacualpan Silver-Gold District to be endowed with many high grade silver-gold zones and has placed multiple zones into commercial production.

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.
