Silver DorA© Production Commences At The Del Toro Silver Mine

In respect to the exploration and development programs since the release of the PFS, the Company has invested an additional $13.4 million which was primarily consisting of expansionary capital to enhance the potential of the Del Toro mine and to extend its mine life. The Company expects to invest, up to December 31, 2014, an additional $19.2 million on exploration and development, $22.5 million on additional plant and equipment, and $3.9 million which has been budgeted towards the completion of the 115kW power line.

As previously announced, the Company is planning to accelerate the ramp up of the cyanidation circuit to 2,000 tpd in early 2014. However, due to persistently low silver prices, management has determined to delay further investment at Del Toro beyond what is necessary. The installation of the first SAG mill has been delayed and as a result total throughput at Del Toro is expected to reach 2,500 tpd in the first quarter of 2014. Management will determine at which time, the expansion to 3,000 tpd or beyond will occur. With these changes in throughput and assuming the mill is maintained at 2,500 tpd throughout 2014, management estimates production of approximately 3.1 million ounces silver or 3.3 million ounces of silver equivalent, with the majority of these ounces coming in the form of silver doré bars, thereby reducing treatment costs due to less Lead and Zinc concentrate production as outlined in the earlier plant design detailed in the PFS.

First Majestic is a mining company focused on silver production in México and is aggressively pursuing its business plan of becoming a senior silver producer through the development of its existing mineral property assets and the pursuit through acquisition of additional mineral assets which contribute to the Company achieving its aggressive corporate growth objectives.
