IMPACT Silver Discovers Wide Silver Veins in First Drill Holes at Mirasol in Zacualpan, Mexico; Intersections Include 7.1 Meters Grading 216 Grams Per Tonne Silver

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/26/12 -- IMPACT Silver Corp. (TSX VENTURE:IPT) ("IMPACT") is pleased to provide results from the first drill holes in the newly discovered Mirasol prospect, located 5.5 kilometers southeast of IMPACT'S 500-tpd (tonne per day) Guadalupe processing plant at the Royal Mines of Zacualpan Silver-Gold District in central Mexico.

In keeping with IMPACT's policy of exploring the Zacualpan District in a balanced and systematic manner, the Mirasol area was chosen for exploratory drilling by virtue of having high grades (up to 1,805 g/t silver, 1.52% zinc, and 3.55% lead in underground workings), hosted by a well-defined 1.1 kilometer long structure, in which the soil geochemistry and geological mapping indicated a good degree of continuity. These first drill holes at Mirasol intersected wide zones of silver mineralization to the east of and beyond IMPACT's previous areas of drilling, and have thus opened a new sector for exploration.

Summarized below are the significant intersections from this first phase of drilling:

To date, three principal target areas have been defined in the Mirasol area: Northwest, Central and Southeast. The Northwest and Central Zones contain a number of old underground workings within a large area of anomalous soil geochemistry for silver-gold-lead-zinc. The Southeast Zone is represented by a less prominent soil geochemistry anomaly and one small underground working (with a silver value of 362 g/t); initial drill holes in the Southeast Zone returned low values but the zone will be further evaluated. Discussions with elder inhabitants of the Mirasol area indicate that their grandfathers worked at the Mirasol (circa late 1800's), and since that time there has been no work until IMPACT's prospectors rediscovered this otherwise lost area.

The principal veins of the Mirasol area represent a shear zone in which the veins strike northwesterly and dip to the southwest. They include the Mirasol Veins (Abajo and Arriba), which dip moderately (35-50 degrees) and the steeper dipping La Colima I, and Deschuesado A and B Veins. To date all of these veins have contributed significant wide intersections which substantially impact the tonnage potential of this area.

Future Plans for the Mirasol Prospect

Drilling is ongoing at Mirasol, with the principal focus being the Central Zone where the mineralization remains open to expansion at depth and along strike in both directions. Additional drill pads have also been constructed for the Mirasol Northwest drilling area, where hole Z12-76 encountered silver grades at depth (335.2 g/t over 1.58 meters) and the mineralization is open to expansion at depth and along strike in both directions.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data.
