VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/13 -- IMPACT Silver Corp. ("IMPACT" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:IPT) announces results from the second phase drill program on the recently discovered Mirasol Prospect, located 5.5 kilometers southeast of IMPACT'S 500-tonne-per-day (tpd) Guadalupe processing plant at the Royal Mines of Zacualpan Silver-Gold District in central Mexico. Higher grade silver values are now being encountered, as well as the discovery of several new veins. A highlight from this program includes drill hole Z12-79, which encountered seven distinct veins, all of which are now contributing potentially economic silver intersections. For the first time since the Company began its exploration drilling in 2006, the top of a new silver bearing vein has been discovered in the district with the expectation that the entire mineralized system is preserved at depth.


IMPACT announced intersections of 8.94 meters of 183 g/t silver and 12.25 meters of 112 g/t silver from the first phase drill program at Mirasol (see news release dated November 26, 2012). This second phase drill program has continued to expand mineralization of the Mirasol Central Zone along strike and at depth. Summarized below are the significant intersections from this second phase of drilling:

Drill holes in this table and in the Mirasol News Release dated November 23, 2012 were drilled on an approximate 50 meter x 50 meter grid. To date, the Company has reported 15 holes from the Mirasol Central Zone, all with significant intersections; most with multiple vein intersections. The zone remains open in all directions for expansion.



Drill hole Z12-82 above, intersected the Valencia Vein, located 180 meters to the southwest of the Mirasol Veins (133.4 g/t silver over 2.01 meters True Width). Recent regional studies indicate a northeast tilt to the Zacualpan Silver-Gold District, whereby the entire mineralizing system is preserved in the Mirasol Area beneath a thin overlying section of unmineralized vein. On surface, the Valencia Vein is represented by a large structure in which surface rock samples and the soil samples did not reveal any anomalous silver values but significant silver values begin at shallow depths in drilling.


Future Plans for the Mirasol Prospect


Drilling is ongoing at Mirasol, with the principal focus being the Central Zone, where the mineralization remains open to expansion at depth and along strike in both directions. Ten additional drill pads have been constructed and more are planned. As for the Mirasol Northwest drilling area where hole Z12-76 encountered silver grades at depth (335.2 g/t over 1.58 meters; see IMPACT news release dated November 26, 2012), additional drill pads have been constructed as this mineralization is also open to expansion at depth and along strike in both directions.

IMPACT is a profitable silver mining company with three principal producing mines in Mexico. The Company's 100%-owned and operated underground silver mines feed a central 500-tonne-per-day (tpd) processing plant located within the historic Royal Mines of Zacualpan Silver District. Cuchara-Oscar, IMPACT'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 Cuchara-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.
