IMPACT Silver Corp. Announces Commencement of Construction at the Capire Open Pit Silver Mine

IMPACT Silver Corp. ("IMPACT" or "the Company") is

very pleased to announce that construction of the new Capire Open Pit

Silver Mine ("Capire") has now commenced. Capire represents

a new production center in a new mining district and an opportunity

that, upon successful completion of the proposed exploration and

development programs, would propel IMPACT to become a multimillion

ounce silver producer. Capire is located in the Mamatla Mineral

District, 16 kilometers southwest of IMPACT's active mining and

processing operations at the Royal Mines of Zacualpan Silver District,


With recent success receiving the final permits that are necessary to

commence mining activities, IMPACT's mine development team has begun

construction at Capire that includes:

-Immediate start of site preparation work, including road and

infrastructure upgrades.

-Commencement of pre-stripping and tailings pond development.

-Installation of the 200 tonne-per-day ("tpd") pilot plant.

-Arrangements of initial silver-lead-zinc concentrate shipments to the

smelter in late 2012.

On site, surface rights for all mining areas, including the tailings

dam and the processing plant, have been secured. Condemnation drilling

under the plant site, the tailings dam and rock waste piles have also

been completed and subsurface water monitoring wells are currently in

place and collecting data. Arrangements have been finalized with the

national electricity company (Comision Federal de Electricidad) to

construct a 30-kilometer high voltage electric power line to the site,

which will supply IMPACT with the sufficient electrical capacity to

accommodate plans for future production expansion at Capire.

These initial operations will be used to optimize mining and

processing parameters in preparation for future construction of a

larger production operation at Capire, with the potential to host an

800- to 1,500-tpd processing plant. The initial 200-tpd pilot plant

operation is designed to test metallurgical recoveries on a commercial

scale; provide detailed information on mining costs; and, optimize

mining and processing methods toward construction of a larger

operation. The starter open pit will be excavated on the western

portion of the Capire Zone to access near surface higher grade

silver-zinc-lead (copper-gold) volcanogenic massive sulphide

mineralization (VMS).

NI43-101 compliant Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources at Capire

currently total 7.2 million ounces silver, 30,446 ounces gold, 95.6

million lbs zinc and 37.2 million lbs lead (see IMPACT news release

dated February 1, 2011). Subsequent drilling (6,698 meters) has

expanded the Capire Zone to the north, east and southeast beyond the

limits of these previously defined Mineral Resources (see IMPACT news

releases dated May 24, 2011 and August 17, 2011).

IMPACT is also pleased to announce that it has appointed Meghan Brush

to the position of Investor Relations. Subject to regulatory approval,

IMPACT has issued Ms. Brush an option under IMPACT's stock option plan

to purchase 10,000 of its common shares at the price of $1.85 per
