Veta Negra area located 3.4 km to the northwest of IMPACT's 535 tonne per day Guadalupe processing plant in the Royal Mines of Zacualpan District, Mexico.
The Veta Negra vein system was mined in the 1970's and 1980's by a previous operator as both an open pit and from underground with existing infrastructure intact. Two north-northwest trending parallel veins with widths averaging 14 metres justified open pit mining methods and are presently being tested to determine the potential of the open pit. Vein mineralization is being trucked from Veta Negra to the Guadalupe processing plant and blended with mineral from the Guadalupe and San Ramon operations.
Historic sampling has shown vein system continuity over a strike length of 650 meters and could represent significant tonnage for IMPACT's mill.
