"We had another solid year in 2012," said Darren Pylot, President and CEO of Capstone. "Our revenue, earnings and cash flow remained strong and we exceeded production and cost guidance for the year. Both operating mines are well-positioned to deliver on their targets in 2013." "We are looking ahead to the growth of the company and in 2013 are reinvesting in our mines and development projects. With approximately ten year mine lives at our operating mines and additional exploration upside, Capstone is poised to deliver strong results well into the future. We plan to advance our development projects in 2013 by formally entering the permitting process at Kutcho and completing key milestones at Santo Domingo, including submitting the Environmental Impact Study and completing the Feasibility Study. We will also continue activities on our greenfield exploration portfolio, with initial drilling campaigns at projects in Chile and Mexico," continued Mr. Pylot. "With our strong balance sheet we have the financial resources in place to execute on our strategy. In addition, the ability to deploy our balance sheet on opportunistic acquisitions provides Capstone with the flexibility to grow our short term production profile and advance the company to the next level."
