receive the cash and share consideration will receive $0.70 cash, 0.0815

of a Coeur Share and 0.01118 of a Coeur Warrant for each Orko Share

held;

-- Orko shareholders who have elected to receive the share consideration

will receive 0.1118 of a Coeur Share and 0.01118 of a Coeur Warrant for

each Orko Share held; and

-- Orko shareholders who have elected to receive the cash consideration

will receive $0.74 cash, 0.0797 of a Coeur Share and 0.01118 of a Coeur

Warrant for each Orko Share held.

/T/

The cash consideration alternative was oversubscribed, and pursuant to the proration methodology established under the Arrangement, Orko shareholders who have elected to receive the cash consideration will receive the cash, Coeur Shares and Coeur Warrants as described above.

Pursuant to the Arrangement, Orko shareholders will receive total cash consideration of CAD$100 million, 11,572,918 Coeur Shares and 1,588,768 Coeur Warrants. Following the completion of the Arrangement, the current Orko shareholders will hold approximately 11% of the issued and outstanding Coeur Shares (prior to the exercise of the Coeur Warrants). The Coeur Warrants will trade under the symbol "CDE.WS" on the NYSE and "CDM.WT" on the TSX. Trading is expected to commence on April 17, 2013 on both exchanges.

Orko will apply for a final order of the Supreme Court of British Columbia approving the Arrangement on Friday, April 12, 2013 and, assuming receipt of court approval and the satisfaction or waiver of all remaining closing conditions, Orko and Coeur expect the Arrangement to be effective on or about April 16, 2013.
