3. Refer to discussion on non-IFRS measures at the end of this press release.

4. Results for San Dimas include 1.5 million ounces received from Goldcorp in connection with Goldcorp's four year commitment to deliver to Silver Wheaton 1.5 million ounces of silver per annum resulting from their sale of San Dimas to Primero.
