"We are pleased to report all-time record sales and operating cash flow for both the quarter and the first nine months," commented Mitchell J. Krebs, Coeur's President and Chief Executive Officer. "In conjunction with strong prices, our rising production levels and growing cash flow offer investors a unique investment opportunity.

"The San Bartolomé and Palmarejo mines are performing consistently, and the Rochester operation is now seeing production from its recently-completed leach pad. We remain on track to produce approximately 19.5 million ounces of silver at unchanged cash operating costs5 of $5.75 per ounce and expect to achieve our financial targets of $1.0 billion in total sales and over $500 million in operating cash flow1. We are revising our gold production forecast for 2011 to approximately 220,000 ounces."

Mr. Krebs continued, "One of our most critical objectives is to deliver consistent results for our shareholders. While we are now achieving consistency at San Bartolomé and Palmarejo, we still have work to do at Kensington, which is the newest of our three, long-life mines. We plan to temporarily reduce processing rates by 50% at Kensington over the next six months to allow time for the operation to complete several key initiatives, which we expect to better position the mine for long-term, sustainable and consistent performance.

"Finally, our cash balance grew to $207.9 million at quarter end. We are evaluating potential alternatives for returning capital to shareholders. As we continue generating significant free cash flow and achieve consistent performance from our operations, we believe we will be well-positioned to invest in high-return internal and external growth opportunities while also returning capital to our shareholders."

5 Cash operating costs is a non-U.S. GAAP measure defined as cash costs less production taxes and royalties if applicable. See the reconciliation between non-U.S. GAAP at the end of this news release. Consolidated cash operating costs per silver ounce are net of gold by-product and represent the consolidation of all Coeur's mines except for Kensington, which is a primary gold mine and reports cash operating costs per gold ounce.

Net metal sales increased 190% to $343.6 million in the third quarter compared to $118.6 million during last year's third quarter, primarily due to increased gold production from the Kensington mine and higher silver production from the Palmarejo mine as well as substantially higher average realized silver and gold prices.

Silver production contributed 68% of the Company's total metal sales during the quarter compared to 62% during the third quarter of 2010. Silver and gold ounces sold were higher than production during the quarter due to several factors, including a carryover of sales from the ounces produced but not sold during the prior quarter.

Coeur reports a non-U.S. GAAP metric of adjusted earnings2 as a measure of operating income and which excludes non-cash fair value adjustments, other non-cash adjustments, deferred taxes and discontinued operations. Third quarter adjusted earnings were $93.8 million or $1.05 per share, compared to an adjusted loss of ($4.5) million or ($0.05) per share during last year's third quarter.

The Company realized net income of $31.1 million or $0.35 per share in the third quarter compared to a net loss of ($22.6) million or ($0.25) per share in last year's third quarter. The earnings reflected fair value adjustments that decreased net income by $53.4 million and $19.1 million in the three months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. These fair value adjustments are driven primarily by higher gold prices which increased the estimated future liabilities related to a gold royalty obligation at Palmarejo and a small amount of gold collar option positions related to a term credit facility secured by the Company's Alaskan subsidiary.

On a U.S. GAAP basis, the Company generated cash flow from operations of $181.9 million during the third quarter compared to $12.9 million during the third quarter of 2010. Prior to changes in working capital, Coeur generated operating cash flow1 of $151.0 million during the third quarter, almost five times higher than a year ago.

Coeur reduced its total debt by 23% from $180.1 million a year ago to $146.7 million, including principal repayments of $6.9 million on the Kensington term facility ($82.8 million remaining) and $3.8 million in senior notes ($18.8 million remaining). As a result, interest expense for the third quarter declined by $2.0 million from a year ago to $8.0 million. Subsequent to the end of the third quarter, the Company eliminated the remaining senior notes, resulting in a further 13% reduction in remaining debt to $128 million.

Capital expenditures totaled $38.1 million during the third quarter, which was slightly higher than during last year's third quarter. Most of the capital expenditures were at Rochester for construction of the new leach pad, at Palmarejo related to activities at the tailings facility and at Kensington for the construction of the underground paste fill plant and for underground development.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $207.9 million at September 30, 2011, almost double from June 30, 2011 and 214% higher than year-end 2010.

5 Cash operating costs is a non-U.S. GAAP measure defined as cash costs less production taxes and royalties if applicable. See the reconciliation between non-U.S. GAAP at the end of this news release. Consolidated cash operating costs per silver ounce are net of gold by-product and represent the consolidation of all Coeur's mines except for Kensington, which is a primary gold mine and reports cash operating costs per gold ounce.

During the third quarter, silver production reached 4.9 million ounces while gold production totaled 57,052 ounces. Kensington contributed 45% of the Company's total gold production. Consolidated cash operating costs were $7.57 per silver ounce in the third quarter, higher than the third quarter of 2010 due to short-term higher production costs at Palmarejo, San Bartolomé and Rochester, which are expected to improve in the fourth quarter. In general, the Company has seen cost increases in power, diesel, other inputs and labor during the quarter.

Palmarejo, Mexico - Generating Strong Cash Flow

  • Third quarter silver production increased 49% to 2.3 million ounces compared to the third quarter of 2010 and was slightly lower than the prior quarter. Third quarter gold production totaled 29,815 ounces, which was equivalent to gold production during last year's third quarter and 11% lower than the prior quarter.
  • Tons milled declined during the third quarter due to mill maintenance and repair work that took place during July, which slightly affected quarterly production levels.
  • Third quarter cash operating costs per ounce were higher than the prior quarter due to increased maintenance and operational costs in the open pit and increased process costs in the areas of grinding and leaching.
  • Palmarejo is the Company's largest contributor of sales and operating cash flow1, reaching $166.9 million and $91.2 million respectively, in the third quarter. Capital expenditures were $9.5 million.

San Bartolomé, Bolivia - Another Consistent Quarter

  • Silver production increased 14% over last year's third quarter and 18% from the prior quarter, while cash operating costs increased 32% and 7% respectively. Increased production was driven by 13% higher mill throughput as well as slightly higher ore grade and recovery rate.
  • Third quarter production costs increased from last year's third quarter due to higher project development, open pit haulage and maintenance costs.
  • San Bartolomé contributed $102.8 million in sales and $49.6 million in operating cash flow1 in the third quarter. Capital expenditures were $4.4 million.

Kensington, Alaska - Short-Term Reduction Expected to Lead to Long-Term Consistency

  • Kensington is expected to enter a six month period where processing levels will be reduced by 50% to approximately 700 tons per day. This is intended to allow the mine to implement and complete several key initiatives, including:
    • Accelerated underground development, resulting in more working faces and greater operational flexibility
    • Aggressive in-fill drilling program to better define the high-grade ore zones and convert existing resources into proven and probable reserves
    • Completion and commissioning of the underground paste backfill plant and related distribution system, providing access to stopes located in previously mined areas
    • Upgrading and completing construction of several underground and surface facilities
    • Improving overall safety of the operation
  • Expected operational effects of this strategy:
    • 2011 production of approximately 85,000 ounces at costs of approximately $990 per ounce
    • 2012 production expected to be similar to 2011, with costs declining in the second half of the year as production levels increase
    • Production levels in 2013 and beyond are expected to rise to approximately 125,000 - 135,000 ounces at substantially lower operating costs than the current levels
  • The mine contributed $44.2 million in sales and $14.5 million in operating cash flow1 in the third quarter. Capital expenditures were $9.2 million.

K. Leon Hardy, Coeur's Chief Operating Officer, said, "2012 is expected to represent a transition year at Kensington as these projects are completed and operating activities resume at increased levels. We recognize that we need to take a step back in the ore production profile in order to advance these initiatives that we expect to ultimately reduce costs and ensure higher, more consistent production levels. Kensington is an underground operation with one primary portal, which means we will need to curtail some ore production in order to advance installations and other work in the mine."

Rochester, Nevada - Resurgence in Production in the Fourth Quarter

  • Third quarter silver production was lower by 16% from last year's third quarter and slightly higher than the prior quarter, while cash operating costs were significantly higher.
  • Per ounce costs were temporarily higher during the quarter as a result of increased costs associated with ore placement on the new leach pad while ounces produced during the quarter consisted solely of residual production of silver and gold from existing leach pads. The new leach pad is expected to begin producing new silver and gold ounces during the fourth quarter of 2011, which are expected to reduce cash operating costs.
  • During the third quarter and through the end of October, the Company placed ore containing over 5,000 ounces of gold and 418,000 ounces of silver on the new leach pad. These levels are expected to double by year end. The Company expects an initial 50% recovery rate within 30 to 60 days from the placement of this ore.
  • The mine contributed $17.5 million in sales and $2.7 million in operating cash flow1 in the third quarter. Capital expenditures were $13.6 million.

Exploration Highlights

Donald J. Birak, Senior Vice President of Exploration, commented, "Our accelerated exploration program is yielding excellent results, particularly at Palmarejo and Rochester. Along with the Joaquin silver project in southern Argentina, we expect this work, continuing into 2012, to result in mine life extensions and mineral resource additions at all of these properties. We anticipate dramatically increasing our investment in exploration in 2012."

During the three months ending September 30, 2011, the Company completed over 39,600 meters (130,000 feet) of new core and reverse circulation drilling in its global exploration program. The majority of this drilling was devoted to the Company's Palmarejo property followed by Rochester, Joaquin and Kensington.

Palmarejo, Mexico

The Company completed over 21,500 meters (70,550 feet) in the third quarter in the Palmarejo District. This exploration drilling was split between targets around the current Palmarejo mine from both surface and underground drill platforms, specifically the Rosario, Tucson and Chapotillo zones, and at the Guadalupe and La Patria deposits. This past quarter's drilling at La Patria remained focused on exploration drilling and definition of the northern zone.

The Company is very encouraged by its initial drilling results from La Patria and has commenced a program of surface trenching to help define the continuity of the known vein structures in support of continued drilling.

Rochester, Nevada

Drilling at Rochester nearly doubled compared to the prior quarter. A total of 12,800 meters (42,000 feet) of reverse circulation drilling were completed at the Nevada Packard and Rochester silver and gold deposits. Drilling at Nevada Packard, situated approximately 2.3 kilometers (1.4 miles) south of the current Rochester mine, focused on expanding the deposit to the west. At Rochester, drilling was focused on the Northwest Rochester zone at the north side of the mine.

Both deposits remain open for expansion. Drilling is expected to continue at Rochester into the fourth quarter and into 2012.

Martha and Joaquin, Argentina

Over 3,600 meters (12,200 feet) of core drilling was completed on all targets in the Santa Cruz Province of southern Argentina in the third quarter of 2011. At Joaquin, drilling recommenced late in the quarter at the La Negra zone. The Company plans to continue to drill to define the mineral resources at Joaquin and advance the project towards completion of a feasibility study, which would increase the Company's managing interest in the Joaquin project from 51% to 61%. Subject to certain conditions the Company has an option to increase its interest to 71%. The Joaquin project is located approximately 100 kilometers (62 miles) north of the Martha mine by road. Other targets drilled in the quarter were Betty and Wendy at Martha and Satélite, an early-stage prospect in eastern Santa Cruz.

Kensington, Alaska

Exploration at Kensington in the quarter consisted of just over 1,000 meters (3,300 feet) of core drilling nearly all of which was devoted to the Raven zone, which is located approximately 685 meters (2,250 feet) due west of the Kensington ore body. This drilling and ongoing drilling is expected to define a new mineral resource estimate on this zone. Raven is one of several gold-bearing vein structures occurring within a 300- to 450-meter wide (1,000 to 1,500 feet) corridor, extending over 3,000 meters (9,800 feet) southward to the Jualin deposit, which is located near the mill facility. Drilling commenced late in the quarter on a new target, Kensington South.

San Bartolomé, Bolivia

The ongoing program of trenching and sampling continued into the third quarter of 2011 at San Bartolomé. A total of 51 new backhoe trenches were completed and sampled, resulting in 339 new samples collected from one-meter vertical intervals. All of this work was centered on the Santa Rita and Diablo areas. Through the first nine months of 2011, 1,010 new samples have been collected from 164 trenches intended to expand and upgrade mineral resources.

(A) The Rochester mine has commenced to place ore on the new leach pad and production is expected in the fourth quarter of 2011. The leach cycle at Rochester requires five to ten years to recover gold and silver contained in the ore. The Company estimates the ultimate recovery to be approximately 61% for silver and 92% for gold. However, ultimate recoveries will not be known until leaching operations cease, which is currently estimated for 2014 for the current leach pad. Current recovery may vary significantly from ultimate recovery. See Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates - Ore on Leach Pad in the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010.
(B) Kensington achieved commercial production on July 3, 2010.
(C) Current production ounces and recoveries reflect final metal settlements of previously reported production ounces.
(D) Amount includes by-product gold credits deducted in computing cash costs per ounce.
(E) Amounts reflect Kensington per ounce statistics only.
(F) Units sold at realized metal prices will not match reported metal sales due primarily to the effects on revenues of mark-to-market adjustments on embedded derivatives in the Company's provisionally priced sales contracts.

"Operating Costs per Ounce" and "Cash Costs per Ounce" are calculated by dividing the operating cash costs and cash costs computed for each of the Company's mining properties for a specified period by the amount of gold ounces or silver ounces produced by that property during that same period. Management uses cash operating costs per ounce and cash costs per ounce as key indicators of the profitability of each of its mining properties. Gold and silver are sold and priced in the world financial markets on a U.S. dollar per ounce basis.

"Cash Operating Costs" and "Cash Costs" are costs directly related to the physical activities of producing silver and gold, and include mining, processing and other plant costs, third-party refining and smelting costs, marketing expenses, on-site general and administrative costs, royalties, in-mine drilling expenditures related to production and other direct costs. Sales of by-product metals are deducted from the above in computing cash costs. Cash costs exclude depreciation, depletion and amortization, accretion, corporate general and administrative expenses, exploration, interest, and pre-feasibility costs. Cash operating costs include all cash costs except production taxes and royalties, if applicable. Cash costs are calculated and presented using the "Gold Institute Production Cost Standard" applied consistently for all periods presented.

Total operating costs and cash costs per ounce are non-U.S. GAAP measures and investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on them and are urged to read all U.S. GAAP accounting disclosures presented in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying footnotes. In addition, see the reconciliation of "cash costs" to production costs under "Reconciliation of Non-U.S. GAAP Cash Costs to U.S. GAAP Production Costs" set forth below.
