IMPACT Silver Announces First Quarter 2012 Financial and Production
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 29, 2012) - IMPACT
Silver Corp. (IPT.V - News) ("IMPACT" or "The Company") reports
financial and production results for the first quarter 2012, ended
March 31. The first quarter results were lower compared to the same
period in 2011 due to unfavorable foreign exchange fluctuations
relative to the Canadian and U.S. dollars and the Mexican peso, and
the decreasing silver grades at depth in the Chivo Mine, which is
currently being addressed by accelerating plans to bring the
high-grade Oscar Mine into production before year-end.
President and CEO, Fred Davidson, comments, "The value of the
mineralization at the depths we are reaching now at the Chivo Mine
is becoming increasingly lead and zinc rich with decreasing silver.
We will be shifting production from the Chivo Mine to the new
high-grade Oscar Mine, putting the Chivo Mine on care and
maintenance until the markets show more economically favorable lead
and zinc prices. We are confident that with the recent successful
completion of the drill program at the Oscar Mine, coupled with the
low capital expenditure required to move the Oscar Mine into
production, IMPACT will be experiencing record production levels in
the near future." The Oscar Mine will be the newest mine the IMPACT
team has moved from exploration into production, with first
concentrate shipments planned for late 2012.

development of the Oscar Mine and construction of the Capire
Preparation of the high-grade Oscar Mine is currently underway,
with mill feed from the Oscar Mine to the nearby Guadalupe
Processing Plant in Zacualpan. For the balance of 2012, IMPACT will
increase the tonnage mined from the San Ramon and Noche Buena Mines
to compensate for the decreasing silver grades at the Chivo
First Quarter 2012 Operational Highlights
With plans to significantly expand production over the next three
years, IMPACT is currently constructing two new mines: the
aforementioned Oscar Mine and the open-pit Capire Mine. The
construction of the Capire Mine is on schedule with the goal of the
first concentrate shipments in late 2012. An upcoming review of the
development of the Capire Mine and production centre will detail
the progress of the construction, while photographs chronicling the
development of the Capire Mine are available on the Company's
website at www.impactsilver.com.
One focus of the Company's exploration activities in 2012 is in the
Valle de Oro area (formerly the Huatecosco Gold Project), located
in a large valley southwest of the Guadalupe Processing Plant.
Valle de Oro is emerging as a potential new gold horizon with
initial drill results on two zones, the Huatecosco vein and the
Carlos Pacheco vein, both returning high-grade gold values which
may indicate a gold horizon beneath the Zacualpan silver
mineralization at depths of 300 meters (see IMPACT Silver News
Release dated October 12, 2011). IMPACT has been aggressively
drilling on multiple targets in the Valle de Oro area, testing the
potential of this zone as a new emerging gold horizon and
