IMPACT Silver Corp. ("IMPACT" or the "Company") announces the unaudited financial and production results for the second quarter and half year ended June 30, 2013.

Fred Davidson, President and CEO, stated, "At the six month mark in 2013, our tonnage, silver production and grades have increased considerably compared to this time last year. We have achieved advancing two mines into initial production this year, which are now beginning to feed higher grade silver to both of our production centres, and we did that with internal cash flow and capital. For the balance of 2013, we will focus exploration on our known higher grade zones and improving the optimization of the Capire pilot plant towards the potential expansion of the open pit mine and production centre."

Half Year 2013 Summary

-Revenues for the first half of the year totaled $8.0 million, a slight decrease from $8.1 million in the first half of 2012.

-Operating expenses increased by 32% to $5.8 million, compared to $4.4 million in the comparable period of 2012.

-Mine operating earnings amounted to $1.2 million in the first half of the year, compared to $2.9 million in the comparable period of 2012.

-Losses for the first half of 2013 were $2.6 million, largely attributable to increased operating costs, increased non-cash share-based payments expense and a non-cash write-down of $0.6 million in the carrying value of an investment in the shares of Defiance Silver Corp.

-Cash and cash equivalents totaled $10.0 million at June 30, 2013, compared to $16.0 million at December 31, 2012. Cash was reduced as a result of investments made to complete the Capire Production Centre and to further the Company's active drilling exploration program.

-Cash flows from operations before changes in non-cash working capital were $0.6 million, compared to $1.9 million in the comparable period in 2012.

Second Quarter 2013 Highlights

-Revenues totaled $3.8 million, a 4% increase from $3.6 million in the comparable period in 2012.

-Mine operating earnings were $0.1 million, compared to $1.3 million in the second quarter of 2012.

-Net loss after taxes amounted to $1.9 million, attributable to an increase in operating costs due to retroactive payments to union workers and higher mining costs as initial production began at the Cuchara-Oscar and Capire Mines.

-Cash flows from operations before changes in non-cash working capital were $(0.2) million and net working capital remained strong at $12.7 million, subsequent to spending $1.4 million on exploration and development of the Company's properties and $2.2 million on property, plant and equipment.

-Silver production increased to 185,998 ounces, a 20% increase from 154,406 ounces in the comparable quarter in 2012.

-Average mill feed grade for silver increased by 12% to 163 grams per tonne (g/t) compared to 145 g/t in the second quarter of 2012.

-Gold production totaled 360 ounces, a 126% increase from 159 ounces in the second quarter of 2012.

-Total tonnes milled during the quarter increased by 6% to 42,086 from 39,813 in the comparable period in 2012.

Refocusing in Times of Lower Metal Prices

On January 2, 2013, the first day of trading for the year, the London Fix silver price was US$30.87. On June 30, 2013 the silver price was US$18.86, a 39% decrease, and has since rebounded slightly to average US$20 per ounce. In response to this significant drop in silver price, the Company is refocusing its mining and exploration work. Mining is now targeting the higher grade silver zones at the operating San Ramon, Noche Buena and Cuchara-Oscar Mines. At the Capire Mine, higher grade material from the open pit is currently being processed while lower grade material is stockpiled for future processing. At the Mirasol Prospect, engineering studies for potential development of the project toward production have been accelerated.

IMPACT is fortunate that its producing mines contain higher grade zones capable of generating positive cash flow in these times of lower metal prices. Exploration for the second half of 2013 will be largely focused on drilling high grade targets that can be quickly put into production through proximal, low cost and rapid expansion of the current producing mines. These initiatives began during the first half of 2013 to achieve positive cash flow in response to lower metal prices while keeping lower grade zones accessible for when metal prices recover. IMPACT's ability to react quickly to changing economics while maintaining a healthy treasury ensures that the Company will weather the downturn in the markets and lower metal prices, and will be ready to benefit from and grow in the coming recovery.

IMPACT Silver operates two silver production centres within its 100%-owned 623 km? land package in south-central Mexico: the Guadalupe Production Centre and the new Capire Production Centre. At Guadalupe, three underground silver mines feed the central 500-tpd processing plant located within the historic Royal Mines of Zacualpan Silver District. At Capire, the Company's first open-pit silver mine commenced initial production in early 2013. IMPACT also holds a 19.9% shareholding in Defiance Silver Corp., who plans to advance IMPACT's processing plant and mineral concessions into production in the Zacatecas Silver District in Mexico. The full version of the financial statements and the management discussion and analysis can be viewed on the Company's website at www.IMPACTSilver.com or on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. A recorded conference call reviewing the second quarter and half year 2013 results will be available on the Company's website on Tuesday, August 27, 2013 at www.IMPACTsilver.com/s/ConferenceCalls.asp.

IMPACT Silver Announces Second Quarter 2016 Financial and Production Results

Tue, 23 Aug, 2016 4:30 PM EDT

ca.finance.yahoo.com

IPT.V0.81-0.05



Trading Symbol: "IPT: TSX.V"

VANCOUVER, Aug. 23, 2016 /CNW/ - IMPACT Silver Corp. ("IMPACT" or the "Company") is pleased to announce its financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

Fred Davidson, President and CEO, stated, "The increase in silver prices has had a positive impact on the Company's financial performance. For the fourth consecutive quarter the Company's EBITDA1 is positive at $0.6 million for Q2 2016 compared to a negative EBITDA of $0.8 million in Q2 2015. Revenues in Q2 2016 increased by 61% over Q2 2015 to $4.4 million. Operationally, the Company is continuing to improve its mine operating income, achieving income of $0.7 million in Q2 2016 compared to a loss of $0.8 million in Q2 2015.

The upward trend in silver prices which started at the beginning of 2016 has continued through August, with prices rising from $14 to over $20. A combination of positive cash flows from operations and aggregate gross proceeds of $7.6 million raised during Q2 2016 will enable IMPACT to refocus its efforts on a more aggressive exploration program which will include drilling a number of key targets. The Company will also continue with its strategy of focusing on higher grade mineral on both the exploration and production fronts as it has proved effective through the last few years of difficult mining markets allowing us to keep our operations lean. With IMPACT's persistent emphasis on profitability for every ounce produced, combined with the exploration potential of higher grade zones of silver at San Ramon and balance sheet strength, IMPACT is a self-sufficient and growing explorer-producer in the Mexican silver space."

Financial Overview

  • Revenues for the second quarter were $4.4 million, a significant increase from $2.7 million in 2015. The 61% increase was due to higher silver prices, and greater production tonnage.

  • EBITDA improved to $0.6 million for the second quarter of 2016 compared to a negative EBITDA of $0.8 million for the same period of 2015.

  • Mine operating earnings before amortization and depletion2 improved significantly by $1.5 million to $1.3 million in Q2 2016 from a loss of $0.2 million in Q2 2015.

  • Net loss was $0.1 million for the quarter, of which non-cash items included $0.6 million in amortization and depletion, compared to a $1.0 million net loss in the same quarter last year, of which non-cash items included $0.5 million in amortization and depletion.

  • Due to the private placements and cash controls in Q2 2016, the Company's cash position at June 30, 2016 improved substantially to $7.7 million compared to $0.7 million at December 31, 2015. Net working capital correspondingly improved to $11.5 million at June 30, 2016 from $2.9 million at December 31, 2015.

  • Capital expenditures during the quarter included exploration & evaluation asset expenditures of $0.4 million (2015 - $0.4 million) and $0.1 million in property, plant & equipment expenditures (2015 - $nil).


  • Production Overview

  • Silver production was 235,990 ounces for the second quarter of 2016, up 8% from 218,380 ounces in the same period of 2015.

  • Average mill feed grade for silver was comparable at 180 grams per tonne (g/t) and 181 g/t in the second quarters of 2016 and 2015 respectively.

  • Total tonnes milled during the second quarter of 2016 increased 7% to 45,099 from 42,300 in the comparable quarter of 2015.


  • Silver sales increased 12% in the second quarter of 2016 to 235,531 ounces from the 209,832 ounces sold in the same period in 2015 as a result of increased tonnage throughput and increased metallurgical silver recoveries. Silver prices have begun to rally with the average for the second quarter of 2016 up 2% from the same period last year, and up 13% over the first quarter of this year. As a result of the increased silver prices and sales, the Company's revenues increased significantly to $98.32 per tonne in the second quarter of 2016, from $66.37 in the second quarter of 2015. For the first six months of 2016 the revenue per tonne improved by 20% to $93.35, compared to $77.84 in the same period of 2015.

    Health and Safety Awards

    IMPACT's mining team recently received recognition awards for excellence in health and safety standards by the Secretary of Labour and Social Welfare in Mexico. This recognition acknowledges the Company's effective working environment, strong relationships with its employees and reduced workplace accidents, illnesses and absenteeism.

    Exploration

    The Company is continuing exploration with the goal of putting some of the 4,500+ compiled old mine workings in the Zacualpan and Capire districts on a faster track to potential production and build mineral inventories for mining. With the proceeds from the Q2 2016 financing, the Company will begin surface and underground drilling programs in the fourth quarter. In May 2016, the Company announced some of the best drilling intersections ever reported in the district at San Ramon Deeps, including 14.82 meters of 481g/t silver. The fall program will include expanded programs at San Ramon and San Patricio where the Company's next mine is being developed. Recently exploration work focused on large and high grade targets at Alacran North, El Zapote and El Angel.

    With a track record of successful exploration, rapid mine development to production and thousands of old mine workings identified to date as exploration targets, IMPACT is well positioned as the metal markets continue to improve. The Company remains dedicated to its long term vision as there is potential for establishing multiple mills throughout the two districts it operates in, each fed by multiple mines producing silver-lead-zinc as well as gold and copper.

    A recorded conference call reviewing the financial and production results of the six months ended June 30, 2016, will be available on the Company website on August 24, 2016, at www.impactsilver.com/s/ConferenceCalls.asp.

    The information in this news release should be read in conjunction with the Company's unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis, available on the Company website at www.impactsilver.com and on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. All amounts are stated in Canadian dollars unless otherwise specified.

    IMPACT has control of the majority of two entire mineral districts in central Mexico: the Royal Mines of Zacualpan Silver District and the Capire-Mamatla Mineral District adjacent to and southwest of Zacualpan. The Company produces silver with lead and gold byproducts at its 550 tonne per day Guadalupe processing plant in the Royal Mines of Zacualpan District.

    The zone remains open for expansion down dip, up dip and to the north. Drilling will resume when construction of a new underground drill station is completed on Level 22 (currently the deepest level in the mine) to enable drill testing of the zone to greater depths. Highlights of previous drill intersections at San Ramon Deeps included 14.82 meters of 481g/t silver and 21.74 meters of 271g/t silver (see IMPACT Silver news releases dated May 5, 2016, March 2, 2016 and January 12, 2016 for details of previous drilling).

    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. The recent drilling outlined the vein to a vertical distance of 35 to 60 meters below the current mine workings. (For a section of the San Ramon Deeps Zone and drill holes, see the San Ramon Mine slide in the PowerPoint presentation on the company website at www.IMPACTSilver.com).

    IMPACT Silver Drills 9.8 Meters of 211 g/t Silver and 13.85 Meters of 186 g/t Silver at Veta Negra First Phase Drill Program

    newsfilecorp.com

    Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - July 13, 2021) - IMPACT Silver Corp. (TSXV: IPT) ("IMPACT" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed Phase 1 of the Veta Negra drill program located 3.4 km northwest of IMPACT's 535 tonne per day Guadalupe processing plant in the Royal Mines of Zacualpan District, Mexico.

    "These results confirm what we have known for the last two years of open pit production at Veta Negra. There is a significant mineralization and prospective grades at shallow depths and expansion potential to the north and south around Veta Negra area. Given the encouraging Phase 1 drill results, we look forward to results from the planned Phase 2 program to start later this month," President and CEO of IMPACT Silver, Fred Davidson, commented.

    Veta Negra Drilling

    Seven holes (MPZ-308-20 to MPZ-314-20) were drilled with IMPACT's Diamec rig to test the near surface mineralization below and to the north of the operating open pit for a total of 530 meters. Results are listed below:

    The Veta Negra vein system was mined historically as both an open pit and from underground. Two north-northwest trending parallel veins enclosed by stockwork mineralized host rock are currently being mined by IMPACT over widths averaging 14 metres in the open pit. Mineralization is trucked from Veta Negra to the Guadalupe processing plant and blended with mineral from the Guadalupe and San Ramon mining operations.

    IMPACT's man portable hydraulic rig is presently drilling in the San Ramon Mine area testing the southern extension of the Inmaculada Vein system. A Phase 2 drill program is planned to test the Veta Negra vein systems to the north of hole MPZ-309-20 and south of hole Z21-05.

    IMPACT Silver Announces Full Year 2021 Results

    Revenue Increased 13% to $17.7 Million, EBITDA $1.5 Million

    newsfilecorp.com

    Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - March 23, 2022) - IMPACT Silver Corp. (TSXV: IPT) (OTC Pink: ISVLF) (FSE: IKL) ("IMPACT" or the "Company") announces its financial and operating results for the year ended December 31, 2021. The Company operates one of the purest silver producers at its Royal Mines of Zacualpan Silver District in Mexico.

    The Company reported $17.7 million in revenue for full year 2021, a 13% increase year over year compared to revenues of $15.6 million in revenue in 2020. The better results were primarily due to increased silver prices during the year despite increases on direct costs due to inflation, development costs designed to increase tonnage long term, and exploration program. Mine operating earnings before amortization and depletion were $3.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2021 compared to $3.3 million in 2020 in spite of higher development costs and lower silver grades both of which continued to impact the operating results.

    Fred Davidson, President & CEO of IMPACT, stated, "With the euphoric start of 2021 and retail shareholder interest in silver thanks to meme-stock mania, IMPACT demonstrated what a efficient miner can do when silver prices start to run. The world has seen unforeseen turmoil in recent days and once again gold and silver rose as safe haven for sovereign and investors globally. As one of the purest silver producers, we believe IMPACT is uniquely positioned as the silver metal attracts investor interest. Underpinned with global currency tightening and true inflationary pressure, we see precious metals catching up with most industrial metals and energy prices.

    "In 2021, IMPACT capitalized on its operational successes and carried out the Company's largest exploration program in years. In addition to ongoing advancements on various mine sites, unlocking the value of our land package, and ongoing evaluation of a near-term restart of our Capire VMS mine using XRT technology, 2021 was a busy year for the team, ultimately setting up for exciting catalysts for growth in 2022.

    "With over 11 million ounces of silver (no equivalents) produced since 2006 by IMPACT, generating over $225 million in revenue and investing over $65 million in CAPEX to date, we are proud of our 2021 achievements and look forward to an even better 2022 with potential growth catalysts such as restart of mining at Capire, drilling of high priority targets, and high silver prices."


    2021 FINANCIAL OVERVIEW



    2021 PRODUCTION OVERVIEW

    The goal at Guadalupe processing plant was to focus on lower cost, higher grade production. The lower but steady production tonnes allowed the Company to focus on mining higher margin areas in lower cost situations. Revenue per tonne sold was $119.04 in 2021 an increase of 3% from 2020 at $116.09.

    Direct costs per production tonne were $97.79 in Q4 2021 an increase of 6% from $92.91 during the same period in 2020 due to inflationary pressures and cost increases as the Company stepped up exploration and development at the Guadalupe mine.

    The mining activity is becoming more focused on the Guadalupe mine and areas accessed from that shaft, with tonnage reaching approximately 50% of total mill feed. A substantial underground development program at Guadalupe is largely complete which included refurbishment of the main production shaft, and rebuilding the extensive track system on the 195 level to access the Pachuqueno section of the mine. This will provide for higher capacity with lower associated hauling costs.

    There were one time weather related costs in Q3 2021 which resulted in excessive haul costs and the mining at the Veta Negra open-pit halted; production at this mine recommenced in the fourth quarter providing 8% of the mill feed.

    Work continued on a third tailings facility with a provisional life of nine years of operations at the Guadalupe mill complex.

    EXPLORATION

    During 2021, IMPACT has conducted an aggressive exploration program, including a diamond drill program that was in excess of 17,000 metres utilizing the Company-owned four surface and underground drill rigs. The program was focused on discovery and definition of additional high-grade silver and gold zones for near- and longer-term mining. With the current success combined with the operational efficiencies of owning its own drills, the Company plans a number of additional programs during 2022 that could approach 20,000 metres of drilling across the Company's extensive land package.

    Select highlights from 2021 news releases:



    JOINT VENTURE ON PROPERTY

    As an ongoing strategy to unlock value for IMPACT shareholders, management is selectively working with high quality junior explorers to assist with unlocking value in the large 211 km2 district owned by IMPACT. During Q4 2020, the Company optioned approximately 1,100 hectares of its Zacualpan S.E. concession to Pantera Silver Corp.

    In Q1 2021, Pantera made a payment of $50,000 in cash, and issued the Company 200,000 treasury shares valued at $85,000. Pantera is required to make option payments of $300,000 in cash, issue the Company 3.5 million shares and complete a minimum of $1.4 million in work on the project over the next three years, to acquire 100% of the project. This agreement is subject to a 1% net smelter return in favour of IMPACT.

    CAPIRE VMS OPEN PIT MINE

    The Capire open pit silver mine and 200 tonne per day processing plant is a separate operating unit located 16 kilometers south of the Guadalupe processing plant. The Capire unit is currently on care and maintenance but the Company is carrying out studies toward bringing it back into production. Previous 43-101 mineral resource studies on the Capire deposit have been evaluated with an inhouse review using the experience of a small test mining open pit operation in 2014. Other studies are being conducted with regard to critical infrastructure to determine optimum plant size for Capire operations and a 1,400 kilogram sample from the Capire open pit was tested using state of the art X-Ray transmission ("XRT") pre-concentration processing technology with encouraging results. XRT technology is a process that recognizes and sorts rocks based on the specific atomic density of the material. XRT sorts ore grade material from waste reducing the amount of material to be processed during the milling process as well as tailings. The Company is currently evaluating the potential impact of XRT pre-concentration upon capital and operating costs, recoveries and the ultimate mineable size of the deposit and the current pilot plant.

    A recorded conference call reviewing the financial and production results of the year ended December 31, 2021 will be available on the Company website on March 25, 2022 at www.impactsilver.com/media/conference-calls/.

    The information in this news release should be read in conjunction with the Company's audited condensed consolidated Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis, available on the Company website at www.impactsilver.com and on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. All amounts are stated in Canadian dollars unless otherwise specified.

    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.

    IMPACT Silver Signs Binding Conditional Agreement to Purchase Plomosas Zinc-Lead-Silver Mine in Mexico

    newsfilecorp.com

    Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 9, 2023) - IMPACT Silver Corp. (TSXV: IPT) (OTC Pink: ISVLF) (FSE: IKL) ("IMPACT" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has signed a Share Purchase and Sale Agreement (the "Sale Agreement") with Consolidated Zinc Limited (ASX: CZL) ("CZL") of Australia dated February 9, 2023 to purchase all of the outstanding shares of its subsidiary, Minera Latin America Zinc S.A.P.I de C.V. ("MLAZ"), which holds a 100% interest in the Plomosas zinc-lead-silver mine in the state of Chihuahua, northern Mexico.

    HIGHLIGHTS

  • The acquisition will expand IMPACT's production profile from one to two producing operations – the Plomosas zinc-lead-silver district in northern Mexico and the Royal Mines of Zacualpan silver-lead-zinc(-gold) district in central Mexico.
  • The purchase price is US$6 million consisting of a minimum US$3 million cash and the balance in IMPACT shares plus a 12% net profit interest royalty to CZL. Completion of the transaction is anticipated on or before April 7, 2023.
  • CZL reported Plomosas JORC mineral resources1 of 215,000 tonnes grading 13.5% zinc, 6.3% lead and 34.0 g/t silver indicated, and 772,000 tonnes grading 13.1% zinc, 3.0% lead and 19.0 g/t silver inferred, at a 3% zinc cutoff at December 2021. IMPACT plans a drill program in 2023 to infill and test extensions of the known mineralization.
  • Plomosas is host to high grade mineralization. Historical mining is in the global upper quartile for zinc grade with approximately 2.5MT mined since 1943 grading 15-25% zinc, 2-7% lead and 40-60 g/t silver with low deleterious elements2.
  • CZL has been mining Plomosas since September 2018 except for some temporary short suspensions during Christmas. IMPACT plans to upgrade the mill and mine with the aim to continue mining followed by plans for expanding operations.
  • IMPACT's highly skilled operations team has 17 years of underground mining and flotation milling experience at Zacualpan which it will bring to advance the Plomosas operations.
  • Exploration potential at Plomosas is exceptional with only 600m of the 6 kilometre long structure assessed plus other exploration targets on the 3,019 hectare property including untested copper-gold targets. Regionally, Plomosas lies in the same mineral belt as some of the largest silver-lead-zinc carbonate replacement deposits ("CRD") in the world2.



  • CEO STATEMENT

    Chairman and CEO Frederick Davidson commented, "We are truly pleased to acquire a second mining district after evaluating hundreds of projects over the years in an effort to grow IMPACT. Currently Plomosas is a relatively small mining operation on a large mineral system. Our goal is to upgrade and expand operations to optimize production from the large mineral system. Our Mexican technical team is exceptionally skilled in building and efficiently operating mines like this and we will bring our 17 years of underground operating experience at the Royal Mines of Zacualpan to hone and grow the Plomosas operations. The technical and management overlap with similarity of asset and operations provides great synergy for the transaction and represents near term growth of our production levels and value to shareholders."

    PLOMOSAS PROJECT OVERVIEW

    The Plomosas project is located 110 km by road from Chihuahua City, the state capital, which is a two-hour flight from Dallas, Texas, USA. The district was discovered in 1832 and has seen small scale mining since 1868. Historical mining is in the global upper quartile for zinc grade with approximately 2.5MT mined since 1943 grading 15-25% zinc, 2-7% lead and 40-60 g/t silver with low deleterious elements2.

    The mine and mill are fully permitted, have an offtake smelter contract2 and have been in production by CZL since September 2018 except for some temporary short suspensions during Christmas. In 2021 CZL processed 31,695 tonnes producing 2,442 tonnes of zinc concentrate and 599 tonnes of lead concentrate. Mine access is by 3 portals reaching a depth of 250m below surface and an old shaft that can be refurbished2. Mineral is processed in a 200 tonne per day conventional flotation mill (recently operating under capacity) with plans to expand. IMPACT plans to upgrade the mill and mine with the aim to continue mining in the near term followed by plans for expanding operations. The Plomosas Property is subject to an underlying 1% Net Smelter Royalty.

    The 3,019 hectare property covers extensive carbonate replacement deposit-type ("CRD") zinc-lead-silver mantos (beds) mainly hosted in carbonates (limestones, marbles). CZL reported Australian JORC mineral resources1 of 215,000 tonnes grading 13.5% zinc, 6.3% lead and 34.0 g/t silver indicated, and 772,000 tonnes grading 13.1% zinc, 3.0% lead and 19.0 g/t silver inferred, at a 3% zinc cutoff at December 2021. IMPACT plans a drill program in 2023 to infill and test extensions of the known mineralization.

    Exploration potential at Plomosas is exceptional with only 600m of the 6 kilometre long structure assessed plus other exploration targets including untested copper-gold targets. Regionally Plomosas lies in the same mineral belt as some of the largest CRD deposits in the world (see Map 1)2. The historic Santa Eulalia Mine is the world's largest historic CRD deposit and is located 100km west of Plomosas (see Map 1). Historic production at Santa Eulalia was over 450Moz silver from 51MT averaging 350 g/t silver, 8.2% lead and 7.8% zinc and mined over 300 years. Reference to this nearby project is for information purposes only and there are no assurances that Plomosas will achieve similar results.

    TERMS OF THE TRANSACTION

    The material terms of the transaction are as follows.

    IMPACT will pay the following consideration to CZL for a 100% interest in MLAZ, the Mexican subsidiary of CZL that owns a 100% interest in the Plomosas Project:

  • US$6 million consisting of a minimum US$3 million cash and the balance in IMPACT common shares (the "IMPACT Shares"). Closing adjustments based on working capital at closing are provided in the Sale Agreement;
  • Contractual restrictions on transfer will be applied to 75% of the IMPACT Shares, such that IMPACT Shares will be released from restriction in three equal tranches of 25% every 6 months over 18 months from closing. 25% of the IMPACT Shares will be immediately held by CZL (subject to a statutory 4 month hold period from the date of issuance of the IMPACT Shares); and
  • a 12% net profit interest ("NPI") royalty on production from the Plomosas project to CZL.
  • It is anticipated that upon closing and assuming US$3 million payment made in IMPACT Shares, CZL will hold approximately 6% of the issued capital in IMPACT. The deemed per share price will be determined in accordance with the Sale Agreement and will be the 20 day VWAP before the date of the Sale Agreement or an equivalent price to an IMPACT financing, should one be conducted before closing.

    Completion of the Sale Agreement is subject to certain industry standard closing conditions for a transaction of this kind (the "Conditions") being satisfied or waived by March 31, 2023. Completion is expected to occur within 7 days of the Conditions being satisfied or waived. Conditions include, among others, TSX Venture Exchange approval of the purchase of MLAZ and the issuance of IMPACT Shares as partial consideration.

    IMPACT has cash on hand to close the Sale Agreement, but may conduct a financing in the near-term for additional working capital.

    ABOUT CONSOLIDATED ZINC LIMITED

    Consolidated Zinc Limited is an Australian junior exploration company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX: CZL). It owns 100% interests in the Pilbara Lithium and Wandagee Projects, which comprise approximately 1,400km2 in 5 granted exploration licences (plus 1 EL Application), located in the Pilbara and Gascoyne regions of Western Australia.

    Impact Silver Announces Results of Aurora 2 Drilling

    newsfilecorp.com

    Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 16, 2023) - IMPACT Silver Corp. (TSXV: IPT) (OTC Pink: ISVLF) (FSE: IKL) ("IMPACT" or the "Company") announces drill results from the Aurora 2 Zone located 1.3 kilometers northeast of the Capire processing plant and 16 kilometers south of IMPACT's other active mining and processing operations at the Royal Mines of Zacualpan in central Mexico. The mineralization at Aurora 2 consists of silver enriched volcanogenic massive sulphide mineralized ("VMS") lenses and is being explored as a potential source of additional feed for the Capire processing plant. These results extend the Aurora 2 zone to the west. The zone has historically been grid drilled with 72 drill holes, and remains open for expansion to the west and northeast. The drilling was carried out with one of IMPACT's man portable hydraulic surface diamond drill rigs. Highlights from the new Aurora 2 drilling include the following:

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.

    IMPACT Silver Announces 2022 Financial Results Including Positive Mine-Level Operating Earnings

    newsfilecorp.com

    Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - March 24, 2023) - IMPACT Silver Corp. (TSXV: IPT) (OTC Pink: ISVLF) (FSE: IKL) ("IMPACT" or the "Company") is pleased to announce its financial and operating results for the year ended December 31, 2022. The Company is one of the most focused silver-dominated companies at the centuries-old "Royal Mines of Zacualpan Silver District" in central Mexico. IMPACT is in the process of finalizing the transformative acquisition of the Plomosas zinc-lead-silver mine in northern Mexico, which is expected to add meaningful revenue, commodity diversification and financial growth driven by exceptionally high grade zinc production.

    The Company reported $16.3 million in revenue in 2022 compared to $17.7 million in revenue in 2021. Despite operational improvements and cost saving initiatives, the decline in revenue owes to a 13.6% decline in silver prices. Mine operating earnings before amortization and depletion in 2022 were $1.2 million (compared to $4.7 million in 2021) owing to lower silver prices and increased inflationary pressures on costs, wages, a stronger Mexican Peso, as well as additional exploration and drilling costs. Management believes cost controls implemented throughout 2022 as well as recovering silver prices as of late, will result in improving margins throughout 2023.

    Fred Davidson, President & CEO of IMPACT, stated, "2022 was one of the most difficult years for global equities and hard assets, with several notable black swan events including the war in Ukraine, unprecedented global inflation and tight supply chains. The resulting increases in interest rates by central banks worldwide resulted in an unprecedented rate hike cycle that started from near zero percent, to over 5% through year-end and into 2023. Despite this, IMPACT managed to minimize losses and position the Company on a trajectory of improved margins and growth in 2023. The Company maintains an enviable, cash-rich balance sheet with no debt, as well as controls on cost inflation at the consumables and labour levels.

    "Our dual-pronged strategy focuses on improving metal grade from existing and new development sites while exploiting added efficiencies at the Company's primary production mill. Meanwhile, shareholders can look forward to increased production, commodity diversification, exploration upside and top quartile zinc grades from the recently announced acquisition of the Plomosas high-grade zinc-lead-silver mine. This transformative acquisition should help significantly improve revenue, margins and deliver shareholder value as we deploy our 17 years of Mexican production experience to bring that operation online and deliver growth both at the production and exploration levels.

    "Backstopping this growth is the Company's Guadalupe mining complex, which is one of the most efficient and productive mining complexes in the region, and our nearby Capire production centre which represents capacity to rapidly expand production as silver prices increase."

    In 2022, IMPACT carried out greenfield and brownfield exploration programs toward growing high-grade feed inventory for the Company's milling operations. In addition to its 211km2 of exploration potential from its legacy Zacualpan-area land package, IMPACT is on the cusp of a new chapter to create shareholder value, as it completes and integrates its recently-announced acquisition of the high-grade zinc-lead-silver Plomosas asset. Plomosas will bring top quartile zinc grades and the potential for high-grade gold and copper mineralization as management seeks to expand the asset's value through aggressive exploration going forward.

    "As a legacy producer with demonstrated strength in adapting to evolving market conditions including maintaining a cash-rich balance sheet, our experience speaks for itself with our 12+ million ounces of silver produced since 2006, as well as the associated, combined revenue of nearly $241 million over that time. Meanwhile, our management team remains focused on growth as it deploys capital above and beyond the $71+ million in CAPEX spent to date. Including our transformative Plomosas acquisition, our 2022 accomplishment of delivering mine-level profitability and cost controls have build the Company to a point where investors are offered each of production, exploration upside and growth potential in the months and years to come," said Fred Davidson.

    2022 FINANCIAL OVERVIEW

    • Revenue in 2022 was $16.3 million compared to $17.7 million in 2021, due to lower average silver prices throughout year.
    • Mine operating earnings before amortization and depletion was $1.2 million in 2022 compared to $4.7 million in 2021, due to industry-wide inflationary pressures impacting operating costs across the system.
    • Cash flow loss from operations in 2022 was $1.8 million, compared to $3.0 million generated in 2021, due to lower silver prices and increased costs.
    • Industry-leading balance sheet including $15.3 million in cash and working capital of $16.4 million at December 31, 2022.
    • Total assets increased to $68.8 million from $66.5 million.
    • The Company has no long-term debt.
    2022 PRODUCTION OVERVIEW

    • In 2022, the Company produced 632,862 ounces of silver, compared to 2021 production of 617,686 ounces, representing an increase of 2% on a year-over-year basis. Meanwhile, silver sales also increased by 2% to 644,843 ounces in 2022 compared to 2021, owing to efficiencies in milling operations.
    • Average silver grade at the mill level was 159 grams per tonne g/t in 2022 and was unchanged on a year-over-year basis.
    • In 2022, mill throughput was 152,862 tonnes compared to 145,458 tonnes in 2021 - averaging 419 tonnes per day.
    Notwithstanding fluctuating silver prices throughout 2022, management was successfully able to drive efficiencies at the Company's Guadalupe processing plant where it focused on mining higher-grade and higher margin material. To this end, revenue per tonne in 2022 was an $105.39, representing a decrease of 11% compared to $119.04 in 2021 due to lower silver prices.

    Direct production costs in 2022 were $97.49 per tonne, representing an increase of 13% from $86.44 in 2021 due to inflationary pressures and resulting cost increases. Management believes the majority of the Company's cost increases have either been addressed or absorbed, and expects a more stable operating environment in 2023.

    2022 CAPEX & EXPLORATION ACTIVITY

    In 2022, the Company initiated a substantial underground refurbishment program at Guadalupe, having rebuilt the main production shaft while rebuilding the extensive underground railway system, allowing access to the high-value "Pachuqueno section". These improvements will contribute towards ongoing margin improvement within the Company throughout 2023, and beyond. As an example, Guadalupe provided 55% of mill feed in Q4-2022 with its improved cost structure. Management is continuously upgrading other infrastructure at the mine level including adding improved access to additional high-grade veins for future mill production.

    San Ramon South, a new zone discovered in 2021, provided 12% of mill feed in 2022 compared to 15% in 2021. At Veta Negra, where drilling and development have helped provide meaningful growth in 2022, provided 11% of mill feed in Q4-2022. The Company is excited to see results of ongoing exploration at Veta Negra as it determines its full potential and size.

    Exploration drilling in 2022 returned significant results in several areas:

  • In the Veta Negra Mine area, results included 257 g/t silver over 19.8 metres and 487 g/t silver over 12.97 metres (see IMPACT news release dated February 7, 2022 for details).
  • At the prospective San Antonio zinc-rich target, drill results included 2.3% zinc over 3.85 metres (see IMPACT news release dated January 4, 2023 for details).
  • At Aurora 2, north of the Capire open pit mine, drill results included 128 g/t silver, 0.42 g/t gold, 0.76% lead and 1.84% zinc over 7.5 metres (see IMPACT news release dated February 16, 2023 for details).
  • Exploration plans for 2023 include brownfield and greenfield targets on the extensive Zacualpan land position as well as at the recently announced acquisition of the Plomosas project (primarily brownfield).

    THE NEXT CHAPTER: GROWTH - PLOMOSAS ACQUISITION

    The Company aims to assume operations at the recently announced Plomosas mine in northern Mexico in Q2-2023 (see IMPACT news release dated February 9, 2023 for details). This acquisition is a transformative one for the Company and is expected to deliver a meaningful growth profile, including high-grade zinc production and exciting exploration potential in 2023 and beyond.

    The Plomosas project is located 110 km east of the city of Chihuahua, Mexico. With 17 years of Mexican production and exploration experience, management anticipates the project will deliver significant shareholder value as the acquisition is integrated into the Company's ongoing production and exploration profiles.

    The district was discovered in 1832 and has seen small scale mining since 1868. Historical mining indicates that Plomosas is a top quartile zinc grade mine globally. Since 1943, approximately 2.5 metric tonnes of zinc have been mined at exceptional grades of 15-25%, as well as 2-7% lead and 40-60 g/t silver1. In addition, the project hosts significant gold and copper exploration targets that will be explored later in 2023. The project's current mine and mill are both fully permitted and come with an existing offtake smelter contract, having been in production since September 2018.

    The 3,019 Ha property covers extensive carbonate replacement deposit-type zinc-lead-silver mantos (beds), mainly hosted in carbonates (limestones, marbles). The previous operator reported JORC-compliant mineral resources2 of 215,000 tonnes grading 13.5% zinc, 6.3%?lead and 34.0 g/t silver (indicated), and 772,000 tonnes grading 13.1% zinc, 3.0% lead and 19.0 g/t silver (inferred). To date, just 600m of the 6km strike length has been explored, thereby offering meaningful exploration potential and upside.

    UNLOCKING SHAREHOLDER VALUE AT ZACUALPAN

    Management is focused on delivering and unlocking shareholder value for its shareholders, including selectively working with other high quality junior explorers to exploit its large-scale, 211 km2 Zacualpan land package. In Q1-2021, the Company optioned approximately 1,100 hectares of its Zacualpan concession to Pantera Silver Corp. Pantera made a payment of $100,000 in cash, and issued 1.0 million Pantera shares to IMPACT, valued at $240,000. Pantera is required to make option payments totaling $300,000 in cash, issue the Company 3.5 million in shares and complete a minimum of $1.4 million worth of work at the project over the subsequent three years, in order to acquire 100% of the project. Negotiations are in place to extend or alter the agreement to accommodate market volatility. The agreement is subject to a 1% net smelter return in favour of IMPACT.

    PRODUCTION GROWTH - CAPIRE VMS OPEN PIT MINE

    The Company has positioned itself to capitalize on improving market conditions. The "Capire Open Pit" silver mine and the associated 200 tonne per day processing plant is a separate operating unit located 16 km south of the Guadalupe processing plant. The Capire unit is currently on care and maintenance, but the Company is able to rapidly bring the plant online as silver prices and market conditions improve.

    Studies are being conducted with regard to critical infrastructure to determine an optimum plant size at Capire in the future, while a 1,400 kg sample from the Capire open pit was tested using state-of-the-art X-Ray transmission ("XRT"), pre-concentration processing technology with encouraging results. XRT technology is a process that recognizes and sorts rocks based on the specific atomic density of the material as well as sorts ore grade material from waste inventories. The Company is currently evaluating the potential impact of XRT on its capital, operating costs, recoveries and the ultimate mineable size of the deposit and current pilot plant. The successful implementation of this technology and re-design of the mine could have a material and positive impact on the Company's future production and profitability.
