IMPACT Silver Announces Third Quarter 2018 Financial and Production Results

Fred Davidson, President & CEO of IMPACT stated, “Over the last two quarters we encountered the perfect storm of lower silver prices, lower grades at our mill, and fluctuating currencies (Mexican Peso & USD). To address this headwind of lower revenue and rising costs, the team has initiated a program designed to ultimately raise mining grades and reduce overall costs. Going forward, the Company will focus on ore grade selection including access to higher zinc zones even at the expense of tonnage milled if required. Work continues on the exploitation of the new San Ramon Deeps 2 zone just south of our current active mining areas, and on development of the Lipton vein at the Guadalupe Mine.”
