COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho, Feb 28, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --

Coeur d'Alene Mines Corporation (NYSE:CDE) (TSX:CDM) today announced its best fourth quarter in the Company's history, leading to record quarterly and full-year performance.

Fourth Quarter Highlights:1

  • 75% increase in metal sales to record $208 million.
  • 186% increase in operating cash flow2 to record $99.4 million.
  • Adjusted earnings3 of $49.9 million, or $0.56 per share.
  • 12% increase in total silver production and 28% increase in total gold production.
  • 28% drop in total capital expenditures to $26.5 million.
  • Cash & equivalents doubled from prior quarter-end to over $66 million.

2010 Full-Year Highlights:4

  • 72% increase in metal sales to record $515 million.
  • 199% jump in annual operating cash flow3 to record $183.9 million.
  • Adjusted earnings3 of $34.3 million, or $0.39 per share.
  • 29% decline in capital expenditures to $156.0 million.
  • 118% increase in gold production to 157,062 ounces.

2011 Outlook:

  • Estimated silver production of 20 million ounces and gold production of 250,000 ounces.
  • Rochester expansion on-track for additional silver and gold production in the fourth quarter.
  • Accelerated exploration program focused on increasing silver and gold resources and reserves.
  • Precious metals market expected to remain strong.

"Coeur's very strong fourth quarter performance demonstrates the powerful combination of our three new long-life silver and gold operations with exceptionally strong precious metals prices. The Company materially outperformed the prior quarter and year during the fourth quarter and 2010," said Dennis E. Wheeler, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "While we continue to fine-tune our new mines as we enter 2011, the fourth quarter provides shareholders with a benchmark for the operating and financial results Coeur expects to generate throughout 2011 assuming continued strong metals prices."

Mr. Wheeler continued, "We took advantage of strong fourth quarter free cash flow to further reduce remaining indebtedness, fund remaining capital projects at our new mines, support ongoing exploration programs at all of the Company's locations, and build our cash balance to position Coeur for an even stronger 2011."

"Gold and silver were leading price performers in 2010, up 29% and 83%, respectively. In the fourth quarter alone, the silver price rose 42% and gold increased 10%. We remain bullish on both metals given continued robust investment and monetary demand for both silver and gold, along with growing industrial demand," Mr. Wheeler added.

Note: Reflects results from continuing operations.

Fourth quarter metal sales jumped $89 million to a record $207.6 million, up 75% compared to the prior quarter, primarily due to the significant rise in silver production from the Palmarejo mine, increased gold production at the Kensington mine, and from substantially higher average realized silver and gold prices. Sales of silver contributed 72% of the Company's total fourth quarter metal sales and 69% of 2010 metal sales. While metals sales materially increased, production costs rose at a substantially lower rate, leading to significant increases in gross profit, operating income and operating cash flow in both the fourth quarter and the full-year of 2010.

Quarterly operating cash flow increased 186% to $99.4 million in the fourth quarter compared to $34.7 million in the prior quarter while capital expenditures declined 28% to $26.5 million. For 2010, operating cash flow jumped 199% to $183.9 million while capital expenditures dropped 29% to $156.0 million.

Quarterly adjusted earnings increased to $49.9 million, or $0.56 per share from $2.5 million in the fourth quarter of last year. Quarterly net income/(loss) was ($9.9) million during the fourth quarter, which included $59.9 million of non-cash adjustments and deferred taxes. Full-year 2010 adjusted earnings totaled $34.3 million, or $0.39 per share, compared to an adjusted loss of $23.5 million in 2009. 2010 net income/(loss) was ($91.3) million which included $117.5 million of non-cash adjustments and deferred taxes. Going forward, the Company plans to report adjusted earnings each quarter and fiscal year, which is intended to provide shareholders with a measure of the performance of the Company's ongoing operations during each reporting period by removing certain non-cash items caused primarily by mark-to-market adjustments required under U.S. GAAP as well as deferred taxes.10

Quarterly operating income increased 505% to $63.4 million in the fourth quarter versus $10.5 million during the third quarter. Full-year 2010 operating income totaled $74.9 million versus an $8.9 million operating loss in 2009.

The Company's average realized silver and gold prices during the fourth quarter were $26.83 and $1,357 per ounce, respectively, representing increases of 42% and 10% over the third quarter. For 2010, Coeur realized $20.99 per ounce of silver sold and $1,237 per ounce of gold sold, representing increases of 42% and 23%, respectively.

At December 31st, 2010, cash and equivalents totaled $66.1 million, doubling the Company's cash balance since the end of the third quarter. Total shares outstanding remain at 89.3 million. Total debt declined 14% compared to three months ago and dropped 18% compared to year-end 2009.

Mr. Wheeler stated, "This new year represents the first full year that all three of the Company's new anchor mines will be in operation at the same time, which has been the key driver to Coeur's strategy over the past three years. As a result, we look ahead to a record year for silver and gold production, metal sales, and cash flow in sustained metals markets. We also look forward to the planned rebirth at our long-time flagship Rochester mine, which will begin adding new production in the fourth quarter, and which continues to be a key contributor to the Company's growing production and asset base."

Silver Production 4,333,530 4,839,842 +12 % 16,868,197 16,761,735 -1 %

In the fourth quarter, the Company produced 4.8 million ounces of silver and 60,640 ounces of gold versus 4.3 million and 47,514 ounces of silver and gold, respectively, in the third quarter. Coeur's quarterly silver production was higher due to a record quarter at Palmarejo in which the mine exceeded 2.0 million ounces of silver production for the first time since commencing production in April 2009. Gold production increased 28% in the fourth quarter due to the continued ramp-up at Kensington, which produced 27,988 ounces of gold in the fourth quarter, and due to Palmarejo's strong fourth quarter, during which the mine exceeded 30,000 ounces of quarterly gold production for the first time since commencing production in April 2009.

In 2010, Coeur produced 16.8 million silver ounces and 157,061 gold ounces compared to 16.9 million silver ounces and 72,112 gold ounces in 2009. 2010 silver production was lower at San Bartolomé and Martha compared to 2009. This was offset by increased silver production at Palmarejo in its first full year of operation. The 118% increase in 2010 gold production was attributable to the start-up of operations at Kensington in July and to the first full year of mining at Palmarejo in 2010.

The Company's production base and long mine lives continue to be supported substantial silver and gold reserves and resources. At year-end, the Company's proven and probable silver reserves totaled 227 million ounces, measured and indicated silver resources were 206 million ounces, and inferred silver resources were 54 million ounces. In addition, Coeur's growing gold production is backed by a large and growing reserve base of 2.5 million ounces of proven and probable reserves, 1.4 million ounces of measured and indicated resources, and 816,195 ounces of inferred resources.12

Exploration Highlights

Coeur invested a total of $17.9 million in its exploration and reserve development activities in 2010 compared to $15.8 million in 2009.

The main components of the 2010 program included:

  • Over 89,000 meters (292,000 feet) of drilling to discover new mineral resources and define mineral reserves. The largest component of the exploration program was invested at Palmarejo.
  • Drilling at the Guadalupe deposit in the Palmarejo district expanded the length of the deposit to over 2.7 kilometers long (+1.7 miles). Mineral reserves and resources increased at year-end with potential to expand with further exploration drilling. Initial testing of several new targets in the Palmarejo district with favorable results from two new targets: La Victoria, to the northeast of the Palmarejo deposit, San Juan de Dios structure located southeast of Palmarejo.
  • Underground drilling to define and expand known mineralized zones in and around the current Palmarejo surface and underground mine.
  • Positive results in other areas of the Company's large Palmarejo land position, including the Don Ese vein structure. Paramount Gold and Silver has recently drilled on this structure located on Coeur's concessions, which is a situation the Company is aggressively addressing in order to defend its property rights.
  • Exploration and definition drilling on the La Negra and La Morocha targets on the Joaquin advanced exploration property in Argentina. Earned initial 51% equity position in the Joaquin joint venture.
  • Initial drilling on the Satélite and Tornado prospects, two new targets in Argentina near the Company's Martha mine. Follow-up exploration is planned for 2011.
  • Over 20,000 feet of drilling on the Raven Vein at Kensington, which represents the first drilling program conducted by the Company on this prospective target, which returned locally high gold grades. Follow-up drilling is planned for 2011.
  • Nearly 14,000 feet of new drilling at Nevada Packard at Rochester to test extensions of the main mineralized trends located between Nevada Packard and Rochester. Results indicate strong potential to expand mineral resources at depth and to the north.

Non-U.S. GAAP Measures

We supplement the reporting of our financial information determined under United States generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) with certain non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, including cash operating costs, operating cash flow, adjusted earnings, and EBITDA. We believe that these adjusted measures provide meaningful information to assist management, investors and analysts in understanding our financial results and assessing our prospects for future performance.

(A) Palmarejo commenced commercial production on April 20, 2009. Mine statistics do not represent normal operating results

(B) The leach cycle at Rochester requires 5 to 10 years to recover gold and silver contained in the ore. The Company estimates the metallurgical recovery to be approximately 61% for silver and 92% for gold. Current recovery may vary significantly from ultimate recovery. See Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates - Ore on Leach Pad.

(C) Current production ounces and recoveries reflect final metal settlements of previously reported production ounces.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Cash Costs to GAAP Production Costs

The following table presents a reconciliation between non-GAAP cash operating costs per ounce and cash costs per ounce to production costs applicable to sales including depreciation, depletion and amortization, calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Total cash costs include all direct and indirect operating cash costs related directly to the physical activities of producing metals, including mining, processing and other plant costs, third-party refining and marketing expense, on-site general and administrative costs, royalties and mining production taxes, net of by-product revenues earned from all metals other than the primary metal produced at each unit. Cash operating costs include all cash costs except production taxes and royalties if applicable. Total cash costs and cash operating costs are performance measures which we believe provide management and investors with an indication of net cash flow, after consideration of the realized price received for production sold. Management also uses these measurements for the comparative monitoring of performance of our mining operations period-to-period from a cash flow perspective. "Cash operating costs per ounce" and "Total cash costs per ounce" are measures developed by precious metals companies in an effort to provide a comparable standard, however, there can be no assurance that our reporting of these non-GAAP measures are similar to that reported by other mining companies. Cash operating costs and total cash costs, as alternative measures, have the limitation of excluding potentially large amounts related to inventory adjustments, non-cash charges and byproduct credits. Management compensates for this limitation by using both the GAAP production costs and the non-GAAP cash costs metrics in its planning.

Production costs applicable to sales including depreciation, depletion and amortization, is the most comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP to total cash costs. The sum of the production costs applicable to sales and depreciation, depletion and amortization for our mines as set forth in the tables below is included in our Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income.
