Coeur Mining, Inc. is the largest U.S.-based primary silver producer and a growing gold producer. The Company built and commenced production from three wholly-owned, long-lived mines 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 leach pad at Coeur's long-time Rochester silver-gold mine in Nevada. The Company also owns a non-operating interest in a silver-base metal mine, Endeavor, in Australia.
In April 2013, Coeur announced the completion of its acquisition of Orko Silver Corp. which includes the La Preciosa project in Mexico, one of the largest undeveloped silver deposits in the world. This asset has the potential to become a world-class silver mine that generates an attractive rate of return for Coeur’s shareholders over a long mine life. Coeur conducts ongoing exploration activities near and within its properties in Argentina, Mexico, Alaska, Nevada and Bolivia. In addition, Coeur owns strategic minority shareholdings in eight silver and gold development companies in North and South America. The Palmarejo mine, San Bartolomé mine, Kensington mine, Rochester mine, and the Endeavor mine (operated by a non-affiliated party), constituted the Company's principal sources of mining revenue in 2012. Coeur was incorporated in 1928 and employs over 1,900 people at its operations across the world. Coeur's common shares are traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol CDE and the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol CDM.
