Coeur d’Alene Mines Corporation is the largest U.S.-based primary silver producer and a growing gold producer. The Company has several core silver and gold mines generating higher production, sales and cash flow in continued strong precious metals markets. This growth is derived from wholly-owned mines that were constructed and began producing between 2008 and 2010: the San Bartolomé silver mine in Bolivia, the Palmarejo silver-gold mine in Mexico, and the Kensington gold mine in Alaska. Further production has commenced from a new heap leach pad at Coeur’s long-time Rochester silver-gold mine in Nevada. The Company also owns and operates the Martha silver-gold mine in Argentina and owns a non-operating interest in a silver-base metal mine in Australia. Coeur conducts ongoing exploration activities near and within its operating properties in Argentina, Mexico, Nevada and Alaska.
