Coeur Reports Strong Operating Cash Flow And Record Gold Production In 2012; Expected Production Growth In 2013 Driven By Rochester Expansion

Companywide proven and probable silver reserves increased 2% from 2011 to 220.4 million ounces. Measured and indicated silver resources increased 36% in 2012 compared to 305.0 million ounces in 2011. Proven and probable gold reserves declined 13% to 2.0 million ounces in 2012 while measured and indicated gold resources increased 45% to 2.4 million ounces compared to year-end 2011.

At Rochester, the Company increased silver and gold reserves by 52% and 25%, respectively, over 2011 after producing 2.8 million silver ounces and 38,071 gold ounces in 2012. As described in the Company's January 17, 2013 news release, Rochester expects to increase production by 35 - 50% based on continued processing of historic stockpiles. These historic stockpiles contributed to the increases in silver and gold reserves.

At Palmarejo, year-end 2012 consolidated silver and gold measured and indicated resources increased 169% from 17.0 million to 45.7 million ounces of silver and 370% from 205,000 to 964,000 ounces of gold compared to year-end 2011.
