2012 was a very successful year of exploration and mine development for IMPACT. The construction of the Capire Mine and pilot plant is nearing completion. The construction and permitting of the new high grade Cuchara-Oscar Mine is also nearing completion and is anticipated to increase silver production at the Guadalupe Processing Plant. Exploration field work and drilling in 2012 was successful in discovering significant zones of silver mineralization at Condesa and Mirasol, both of which will continue to be drilled in 2013 to build mineral inventories for mining.
New silver targets as well as a number of new gold-copper targets are also being prepared for drilling in 2013. IMPACT's exceptional discovery and mine development rate of four new mines in the last six years is attributed to its highly skilled technical team and a systematic approach to exploration and mine development.
