Agnico-Eagle Mines Limited Announces Investment In Sulliden Gold Corporation Ltd.

(All amounts expressed in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted)

TORONTO, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Agnico-Eagle Mines Limited (NYSE: AEM) (TSX: AEM) ("Agnico") today announced that it has agreed to subscribe for 26,966,292 units ("Units") of Sulliden Gold Corporation Ltd. ("Sulliden") in a non-brokered private placement at a price of $0.89 per Unit for total consideration of $24,000,000.  Each Unit is comprised of one common share of Sulliden (a "Common Share") and 0.7 of one common share purchase warrant of Sulliden (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant").  Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one Common Share at a price of $1.31 for a period of two years from the closing date.  Closing of the private placement is expected to occur on or about April 12, 2013.

On closing of the private placement, Agnico will hold 26,966,292 Common Shares and 18,876,404 Warrants, representing 9.96% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares on a non-diluted basis and 15.83% of the Common Shares on a partially diluted basis.  The agreement also provides Agnico with a participation right pursuant to which, during the two-year period from the closing date, and provided that Agnico at the time continues to hold no less than five percent of the then issued and outstanding Common Shares, Agnico has the right to participate in certain future equity financings by Sulliden in order to maintain its pro rata investment in Sulliden.

Agnico is acquiring the Units for investment purposes.  Depending on market conditions, Agnico may, from time to time, acquire additional Common Shares or other securities of Sulliden or dispose of some or all of the Common Shares or Warrants.
