IMPACT Silver Corp. ("IMPACT" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the results of a surface mapping and sampling program on the Manto America gold target area of the Royal Mines of Zacualpan District, Mexico.
The Manto America area hosts the strongest gold soil geochemical anomaly on IMPACT's claims and extends over an area 3.5 km east-west and 900m north-south. It is located 10km south of the operating Guadalupe processing plant and 7 km north-northeast of the Capire processing plant. The area is being mapped and sampled by IMPACT and to date 33 rock samples greater than 2.0 g/t Au have been collected from historic artisanal underground workings and surface with values up to 19.5 g/t Gold over a true width of 1.2m. Highlights of recent sampling include:
|SAMPLE NO||SURFACE/ UG||SAMPLE
|LEAD %||ZINC %|
About Manto America Gold Project
Manto America was mapped and sampled by a previous concession owner during the late 1990's when the gold price hovered below $400 US per ounce. The program was followed by limited drilling of six holes with anomalous but not economic results. IMPACT crews are outlining new areas and drill targets on this large gold-in-soil anomaly.
The mineralization is hosted in strongly argillically altered volcanic rocks and is associated with lead and barium suggesting a volcanogenic massive sulphide provenance similar to the Capire silver lead zinc deposit to the south (see IMPACT news release dated January 18, 2016 for details of resources at Capire). IMPACT is continuing to explore the Manto America area with the goal of defining low grade bulk tonnage gold mineralization.
About IMPACT Silver:
IMPACT Silver Corp. is a successful silver explorer-producer with two processing plants on adjacent districts within its 100% owned large land package in central Mexico with excellent infrastructure and labor force. During the past thirteen years IMPACT has produced over 9.4 Moz of Silver generating revenues of $175 million, with no long-term debt. In the historic Royal Mines of Zacualpan Silver District three underground silver mines feed the central 535 TPD Guadalupe processing plant.
To the south, in the Mamatla District the Capire processing plant is currently rated at 200 tpd, but is expandable. It is adjacent to an open pit silver mine with a National Instrument 43-101 compliant resource of over 4.5 Moz Silver, 48 million lbs Zinc and 21 million lbs Lead (see IMPACT news release dated January 18, 2016 for details) that is awaiting higher silver prices to be restarted. Since acquiring the project, IMPACT has compiled an exhaustive database with over 5,000 old mine workings, assayed over 34,000 rock samples and over 54,000 drill core samples, analysed over 50,000 soil samples, and put six mines into production. Additional information about IMPACT and its operations can be found on the Company website at www.IMPACTSilver.com.

Forward-Looking and Cautionary Statements
This IMPACT News Release may contain certain "forward-looking" statements and information relating to IMPACT that is based on the beliefs of IMPACT management, as well as assumptions made by and information currently available to IMPACT management. Forward-looking information is often, but not always, identified by the use of words such as "seek", "anticipate", "plan", "continue", "planned", "expect", "project", "predict", "potential", "targeting", "intends", "believe", "potential", and similar expressions, or describes a "goal", or variation of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results "may", "should", "could", "would", "might" or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved. Such statements include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to the expected use of proceeds of the Private Placement.
Such forward-looking information involves known and unknown risks and assumptions, including with respect to, without limitations, exploration and development risks, expenditure and financing requirements, title matters, operating hazards, metal prices, political and economic factors, competitive factors, general economic conditions, relationships with vendors and strategic partners, governmental regulation and supervision, seasonality, technological change, industry practices, and one-time events. Should any one or more risks or uncertainties materialize or change, or should any underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results and forward-looking statements may vary materially from those described herein. IMPACT does not assume the obligation to update any forward-looking statement.
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.
