Goldcorp Clarifies Chilean Press Report Following Judicial Decision Regarding El Morro Project Permit Approval

Toronto Stock Exchange: G                                                                    New York Stock Exchange: GG

VANCOUVER, March 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - GOLDCORP INC. (TSX: G, NYSE: GG) announces that the Appellate Court of Antofagasta issued a decision dated February 16, 2012 granting the petition of the Agricultural Community of the Huascoaltinos. The petition challenges the validity of the Resolution of Environmental Qualification (Resolucion de Calificacion Ambiental or RCA) issued by the Environmental Evaluation Commission of the Atacama Region on March 14, 2011. The RCA approved the environmental and social impact statement for the El Morro Project. Under the law of Chile, the ruling of the Appellate Court will not be effective unless and until confirmed by an order issued by the Supreme Court of Chile. The Chilean Environmental Evaluation Commission appealed the Appellate Court's ruling. Sociedad Contractual Minera El Morro (El Morro Company), the Chilean company that owns and operates the El Morro Project, participated in the legal proceedings before the Appellate Court and also appealed the Appellate Court's ruling.  Unless and until an order is issued declaring the RCA to be without effect, the El Morro Company intends to continue with the development of the El Morro Project as described by Goldcorp in its press release date February 15, 2012.

The decision of the Appellate Court of Antofagasta is not related in any manner with the litigation pending in Ontario between Barrick Gold Corporation, Xstrata Copper Chile Limitada (and other Xstrata entities), Datawave Sciences Inc. (and other New Gold Inc. entities) and Goldcorp Inc. (and other Goldcorp entities).
