VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/25/12 -- IMPACT
Silver Corp. ("IMPACT" or "The Company") (TSX VENTURE:IPT) is pleased
to announce additional drill results from the open pit Capire mine at
the Capire Production Center. The Capire Production Center will
initially host a 200 tonne-per-day (tpd) pilot plant, with plans to
expand the operation up to 1,500 tpd in the future.  
The Capire Project is located within the 200-square-kilometerMamatla
district and is 16 kilometers southwest of IMPACT's active mining
operations at the Royal Mines of Zacualpan, Mexico. The current
development and subsequent commencement of production at Capire this
winter represents the next significant phase of growth for the
Company. The mineralization at Capire consists of volcanogenic
massive sulphide ("VMS") targets, and the ongoing, aggressive drill
program will continue with the objective to further expand and define
the deposit and its surrounding zones to determine the potential size
of the larger processing plant operation. The planned open-pit trends
in an east-west direction and the drill results in the following
table highlight additional drilling which extended the deposit to the
north and south.

The drill holes listed in the table above were drilled vertically and
all intersections are estimated to be close to true width. These
holes expanded to the extent of the Capire mineralization in the
north and south direction, while the zone remains open for further
expansion to the east. 
IMPACT Silver President and CEO, Fred Davidson, comments, "The Capire
zone is unlike most of the vein mineralization found throughout the
district. We are looking for polymetallic VMS prospects, and will
initially be running mineralized material through the 200 tpd pilot
plant to accurately determine what we are working with. Often
benchscale tests are run on 500 tonnes of ore, providing a level of
accuracy of about 70%. Our plan is to run a benchscale test with
60,000 tonnes of ore, to achieve a level of accuracy of about 95%."
IMPACT engineers are now studying the possibility of expanding the
open pit plan to incorporate some of these additional drill results. 
The current combined Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource Estimate
at the Capire Deposit totals 7.2 million oz. silver, 30,446 oz. gold,
95.6 million lbs. zinc and 37.2 million lbs. lead (see IMPACT Silver
news release dated February 1, 2011 for details).
