Coeur Appoints Hans Rasmussen To Vice President Of Exploration

Coeur Mining, Inc. (the “Company” or “Coeur”) (NYSE: CDE, TSX: CDM) today announced that Hans Rasmussen has joined the Company as Vice President of Exploration effective September 9, 2013. Mr. Rasmussen takes over the senior exploration role from Don Birak who has served Coeur in that capacity since 2004.

“We are very pleased to have Hans join our executive team as Vice President of Exploration,” said Mitchell J. Krebs, Coeur’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Hans brings extensive experience as a geologist, geophysicist, exploration manager and company executive. He has a proven record working with teams on major discoveries in locations including Penasquito, Mexico; Whistler, Alaska; and Lindero, Argentina,” he said. “I’d like to thank Don Birak for his years of service and contributions to Coeur as Senior Vice President of Exploration,” Krebs said.

Most recently Mr. Rasmussen served as President and Chief Executive Officer of Colombia Crest Gold Corporation, a public company with gold exploration in Colombia, Peru and Bolivia. Mr. Rasmussen started his career working for major mining companies including Newmont Exploration as a geophysicist searching for sediment hosted gold deposits in the Great Basin, and the Kennecott/Rio Tinto group where he was geophysicist and exploration manager for North American projects, and later country manager of Argentina and Bolivia. He has also served as a consultant for senior producers such as Teck-Cominco and Quadra Mining, and on the Board of Directors of junior exploration companies including White Knight Resources, Mansfield Minerals, Pachamama Resources, Bonterra Resources, Samaranta Mining, Golden Phoenix Minerals and Corazon Gold. Mr. Rasmussen has a Master of Science in Geophysics from the University of Utah, and Bachelor of Science degrees in Geology and Physics from Southern Oregon University.
