Dear Coeur d’Alene Mines Corporation Shareholder:
     We are sending you this letter as additional proxy materials relating to our Annual Meeting scheduled to be held on May 11 2010.
     Because of a change in NYSE rules, we note that, unlike at our previous annual meetings, your broker will not be able to vote your shares with respect to the election of directors if you have not provided instructions to your broker. We strongly encourage you to submit your proxy card and exercise your right to vote.
     Our Board of Directors recommends that you vote in favor of the election of each director, the ratification of our auditors and the approval of the amendment to our 2003 Long Term Incentive Plan.
     Because we have not heard from you, we are sending you this reminder notice, and we urge you to vote your proxy immediately. As a shareholder, you have the ability to vote over the internet, by telephone or by submitting your proxy card, and we are asking you to do so now to save the Company further expense. Instructions on how to vote over the phone or internet are enclosed in this package.
     Your shares cannot be represented at the Annual Meeting on the election of directors or the approval of the amendment to our 2003 Long Term Incentive Plan, unless you either sign and return the enclosed voting form or vote by telephone or over the internet.
     If you sign and return the enclosed proxy card without indicating a choice of “for, ” “against or “abstain” your shares will be voted as recommended by our Board of Directors.
