The San Ramon Mine is located five kilometers southeast of IMPACT's 500 tonne per day Guadalupe processing plant in the Royal Mines of Zacualpan District of central Mexico. The mine commenced production in 2006, and since then mining has occurred on 22 working levels over a vertical distance of 260 meters.
IMPACT discovered this deeper zone of high-grade mineralization in 2014 and began mining soon after. Since then this zone has been largely responsible for the higher silver grades reported by IMPACT's Guadalupe mill and accounts for 40% of IMPACT's current production. To date this deep vein has been exposed in mine workings on Levels 16.5, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22 over a length of 180 meters.
Exploration upside remains open at San Ramon Deeps.
The recent drilling outlined the vein to a vertical distance of 60 to 80 meters below the current mine workings and extended the zone to the north on a shallow raking projection.
Recent high grade veins have also been found at this area including high grade silver 4.12 meters of 1,613 g/t Silver and 11.08 meters of 248 g/t Silver intersects.
