IMPACT Silver Corp. Announces Commissioning of the New Capire Production Centre in Mexico

IMPACT Silver Corp. Announces Commissioning of the New Capire Production Centre 
in Mexico 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/14/13 -- IMPACT
Silver Corp. ("IMPACT" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:IPT) is pleased
to announce the start of preliminary operations at its second
production centre in Mexico, the new Capire Production Centre
("Capire"). The open-pit Capire mine and pilot processing operation
is located in northern Guerrero State in south-central Mexico.
Construction of the 200 tpd (tonne-per-day) pilot plant is now
complete and first concentrate shipments are expected within the
second quarter of 2013. 
The Capire Production Centre hosts an initial 200 tpd flotation
circuit pilot plant, with the objective to significantly expand
processing operations in the future. The purpose of the 200 tpd pilot
plant and mining operation is to determine the future production
costs and cut-off grades for a possible larger plant and provide
near-term operating cash flow. Production revenues are projected to
come from silver with zinc, lead, gold and possibly copper
byproducts. 
Exploration drilling is continuing both to expand the Capire deposit
and to test nearby satellite silver prospects. A minimum 10,000 meter
drill program is planned for the Capire area in 2013. Among other
factors, the level of drilling success through 2013 and into 2014
will determine the size of the future plant expansion. The main
mineralized zones in the Capire area are volcanogenic massive
sulphide (VMS) base metal deposits with elevated silver values (see
IMPACT's Updated N1 43-101 Report on Mineral Resources of the
Capire-Aurora1 Project dated January 28, 2011 at www.sedar.com for
details). 
Infrastructure is good throughout the Capire area with gravel road
networks, gentle topography, a new electric power line, water
supplies and a local work force augmented by personnel from IMPACT's
Royal Mines of Zacualpan Silver Production Center, located a 40
minute drive to the north. Photos chronicling the development of the
Capire Mine and Processing Plant are available on the Company website
at www.IMPACTSilver.com.

IMPACT is a profitable silver mining company with two production
centres in Mexico, the Guadalupe and the Capire. At Guadalupe, the
Company's 100% owned and operated underground silver mines feed a
central 500 tpd processing plant located within the historic Royal
Mines of Zacualpan Silver District. The recent commencement of
production at the underground Cuchara-Oscar Mine at Guadalupe and the
start of preliminary operations at 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 17.29%
shareholding in Defiance Silver Corp., which is advancing the
Company's 200 tpd processing plant and mineral concessions to
production in the Zacatecas Silver District in Mexico. Additional
information can be found on the Company website at
