Coeur D'Alene 4Q Net Income More Than Triples

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) â¿¿ Coeur d'Alene Mines Corp. said Thursday that fourth-quarter net income more than tripled, as it reduced debt and precious metals prices rose.

Excluding one-time items, earnings were 29 cents per share.

Analysts forecast earnings of 21 cents per share, according to FactSet.

The company's total debt dropped to $48.1 million from $121.5 million.

For the year, Coeur d'Alene earned $48.7 million, or 54 cents per share. In 2011 it made $93.5 million, or $1.04 per share.

Metal sales dropped 12 percent to $895.5 million.

Annual gold production rose 3 percent to 226,486 ounces as the average realized price for an ounce of gold increased 7 percent. Silver production dropped 6 percent, with the average realized price per ounce down 12 percent.
