  3. 3. CORPORATE HIGHLIGHTS • Profitable silver production in Mexico: Three 100% owned and operated mines • Corporate focus is on profits: 553% increase in net earnings from 2009 to 2011 • A strong cash position of $23.1M and zero debt and 90% of revenues from silver • Building a new mining district: Capire Mine and Processing Plant in Mamatla, Mexico • Friendly-to-investor, tightly managed share structure (73M Shares FD)2
  4. 4. LOCATION • Two mineral districts in a large contiguous 623 sq km land package • A three-hour drive southwest from Mexico City • Excellent infrastructure with paved road access to mill, ample water supply and a skilled Mexican workforce • Many other significant mining operations nearby: Grupo Mexico, First Majestic, Goldcorp3
  5. 5. HISTORY • The Royal Mines of Zacualpan is one of the oldest mining districts in the Americas with 485 years of recorded mining history • Over 3,000 old mine workings have been catalogued and form the basis for modern and effective exploration • IMPACT bought the Zacualpan assets in 2006 and then One of 30 historic processing plants found in the consolidated ownership of the district attesting to a long history of silver mining entire district for the first time in its history4
  6. 6. TWO DISTRICTS, ONE LAND PACKAGE ROYAL MINES OF ZACUALPAN SILVER DISTRICT • Current active mining center . • Large 100% owned claim position covers 423 sq km (163 sq miles) • Central 500 tpd mill fed by three underground mines: San Ramon, Chivo & Noche Buena • New underground Oscar mine scheduled for production late 2012 • Substantial exploration potential for both silver and gold This map is reproduced in miniature on following slides5
  7. 7. MINE PRODUCTION ROYAL MINES OF ZACUALPAN 2011 Performance Results: • 154,289 tonnes produced, average of 424 tpd at 5.7 oz/tonne (195 g/t) silver recovered • 833,607 silver ounces produced • $9 cash cost per ounce silver net of lead and zinc credits • YE 2012: Oscar mine scheduled for production6

  23. 23. FUTURE PLANS AND GOALS 2012 • 2012 is a transition year as IMPACT builds two new mines, laying the foundation for the next phase of profitable silver production growth • Continue aggressive exploration to accelerate organic growth at the Royal Mines of Zacualpan • With over $23 million of unallocated cash and consistent production earnings, pursue accretive merger and acquisition opportunities of near term production or cash-strapped precious metals companies worldwide 2013 to 2015 • Double silver production with expansion of Capire Production Center • Continue exploration and development of both silver zones and deep gold zones within the gold-rich Valle de Oro zone22
  24. 24. WHY IMPACT SILVER? • Five years of increasing revenues and earnings • Strong cash position & zero debt • Expanding silver production with two new mines commencing production within the next five months • Aggressive exploration for gold and silver in the Valle de Oro • Tight share structure and small This statue of a miner is located in front of the market cap for a profitable church in the town of Zacualpan, signifying the importance and acceptance of mining within producer the community and the surrounding areas. • Proven history of profitable mining success23
