Entrance to the San Ramon Mine
The San Ramon Mine is an epithermal underground silver mine located five kilometers southeast of the Guadalupe Production Centre. It is one of the principle producing mines in the district and has been a significant contributor to production since 2008.

During 2012, a second access adit was constructed from the valley floor to access the lower San Ramon workings at Level 15 and is now the main production adit for the mine; this second access adit reduces mining and hauling costs at San Ramon.




History


In 2006, the San Ramon Mine generated the majority of the high grade feed for the Guadalupe Production Centre; however, operating costs were rising substantially and mineral delineation became increasingly complex due to the nature of the mine access, and the Company temporarily ceased the San Ramon mining operation. After redesigning the mining plan, the Company recommenced mining at San Ramon in early 2008,. In early 2014 grades dropped with depth, and production decreased. During 2014, underground drilling from the bottom levels of the mine discovered new high grade silver zones in the nearby San Ramon Deeps area and mining of this area began in Q3-2014. It has been the main source of the increase in average overall mined silver grade since then. To date this vein has been exposed on multiple levels in the mine over a length of 180 meters and widths of 2 to 17 meters with mining grades of over 200 g/t silver. IMPACT has expanded the main mine ramp to better access the zone and to increase monthly tonnages of high grade silver mineral extracted from the mine with the aim to continue increasing overall silver grades and silver production ounces at the Guadalupe mill.
