Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 13, 2021) – IMPACT Silver Corp. (TSXV: IPT) (OTC Pink: ISVLF) (“IMPACT” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has purchased another surface drilling rig to add to productivity of its exploration plans for 2021-2022. This brings the total Company-owned drill fleet to two surface and two underground rigs. To date in 2021, IMPACT has drilled over 9,000 meters. Initial drill assay results have been published and further results are pending.
With this new drilling capacity IMPACT plans to add a second phase of drilling for an additional 10,000 meters to test priority targets including the Pachuqueno area of the Guadalupe Mine, southern extensions of the San Ramon mine, and initial drilling on new greenfields targets developed by the Exploration team.
CEO Fred Davidson stated “With cashflow positive at operations and a healthy treasury we are focusing on following up on the many qualified and highly prospective targets within our GIS database on our large 211 square kilometer land package. The fourth drill will add productivity and capacity for us to test new targets starting with the San Ramon Mine South area which could open up new areas for mining.”
The current Phase One 10,000 metre drill program on both near mine and greenfield exploration targets (see IMPACT news release dated February 1, 2021) program is ongoing. Initial Phase One drill results from the Veta Negra Mine area included 9.8 meters of 211 g/t Silver and 13.85 meters of 186g/t Silver (see IMPACT news release dated July 13, 2021).

Forward-Looking and Cautionary Statements
This IMPACT News Release may contain certain “forward-looking” statements and information relating to IMPACT that is based on the beliefs of IMPACT management, as well as assumptions made by and information currently available to IMPACT management. Such statements reflect the current risks, uncertainties and assumptions related to certain factors but not limited to, without limitations, exploration and development risks, expenditure and financing requirements, title matters, operating hazards, metal prices, political and economic factors, competitive factors, general economic conditions, relationship with vendors and strategic partners, government regulation and supervision, seasonality, technological change, industry practices, and one-time events.

IMPACT does not assume the obligation to update any forward-looking statement, except as required by law.
The Company’s decision to place a mine into production, expand a mine, make other production related decisions or otherwise carry out mining and processing operations, is largely based on internal non-public Company data and reports based on exploration, development and mining work by the Company’s geologists and engineers. The results of this work are evident in the discovery and building of multiple mines for the Company and in the track record of mineral production and financial returns of the Company since 2006. Under NI 43-101 the Company is required to disclose that it has not based its production decisions on NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource or reserve estimates, preliminary economic assessments or feasibility studies, and historically such projects have increased uncertainty and risk of failure.
