Impact Silver – A Broad Review Of Operations, Development, And Exploration Work At All Projects
Fred Davidson, President and CEO of Impact Silver (TSX.V:IPT – OTC:ISVLF), joins us to provide a comprehensive update on production, development projects, and exploration plans for this year. The Company is currently focusing production operations from the Guadalupe Mine and San Ramon Mine, with underground exploration ongoing at both projects, along with expansion of Guadalupe towards the Pachuqueno target. There is also some small-scale mining contribution coming from both the Veta Negra Mine and the Mina Grande Mine, with expansion exploration at both of those projects as well.
Over at the Capire Production Centre, where the company has previously done some test mining, they are reviewing utilizing an XRT ore-sorting scanner to upgrade the ore mined before going to the mill, increasing the grade and reducing waste rock by up to 40%, allowing for more ore to be processed through this process. There is also key exploration work going on at two different targets near this project.
We wrap up with the greenfields exploration as part the overall 25,000 meter drill program in 2022, where there was just work completed at the newer San Antonio target for both gold and silver, as well as work planned on the Valley of Gold target, and around the historic Alacran Mine. Fred mentioned that as they work towards permits at Alacran, and then dewatering, is one of the targets he believes could really become a key focus for exploration and development moving into next year.
