Impact Silver Announces Property Acquisitions In Zacatecas
IMPACT Silver Corp. ("IMPACT") is pleased to announce that it has
acquired two new concessions in the Zacatecas Silver District of
Mexico. The Nueva Granada and Asturiana acquisitions are for 100%
interests in each concession with no underlying royalties.
The concessions cover most of the Nueva Granada vein which is part of
the Veta Grande vein system. Historically, the Zacatecas Silver
District has produced over 1 billion ounces of silver and the Veta
Grande vein system was the largest producer in the district. Past
production figures from the Nueva Granada vein are not available, but
old plans indicate that it was mined along a length of 700m and to a
depth of 150-200m.
In addition, the concessions contain about 30,000 tonnes of old mine
dumps. In 2003, it was reported that 12,000 tonnes from these dumps
were processed, returning an average grade of 220g/t silver. This
material was processed in the Veta Grande plant, which IMPACT controls
through an option to purchase agreement.
IMPACT management is pleased to have added these two key historic
concessions to its property holdings in Zacatecas. With these
purchases, IMPACT now controls 17 concessions in the Zacatecas area,
continuing its strategy of building its portfolio of properties to
provide future mineral supplies to feed the Veta Grande plant.
