Oscar, the Company's fourth underground mine, is scheduled to commence production in early 2013. IMPACT is also currently developing its second mining district in Mexico, the open-pit Capire Mine and Processing Centre, scheduled to begin pilot plant operations in early 2013. The upcoming commencement of production at the underground Oscar Mine and the open-pit Capire Mine represent the next phase of significant production growth for the Company, with the objective of ultimately establishing IMPACT as a multimillion-ounce silver producer. IMPACT also holds a 16.5% shareholding in Defiance Silver Corp., who is advancing the Company's 200-tpd mill and mineral concessions into production in the Zacatecas Silver District.
