From Coeur's President & Chief Executive Officer, Mitchell J. Krebs

"In addition to strong production increases, we again delivered industry-leading cost reductions during the second quarter. Combined with higher realized silver and gold prices, our quarterly adjusted EBITDA nearly doubled to $72.4 million, and we generated positive free cash flow of $12.2 million during the quarter.

"Along with our strong operating and financial performance, we achieved two significant milestones subsequent to quarter-end: the satisfaction of the minimum ounce obligation on Palmarejo's Franco-Nevada royalty and the repayment of the $100 million term loan. The transition to the improved Franco-Nevada terms represents a watershed event, positioning Palmarejo to be a significant contributor to free cash flow going forward. Combined with the debt repayment and the commensurate reduction to interest expense, our operations are poised to generate significant free cash flow in the second half of 2016.

"During the second half of the year, we plan to increase our exploration budget by approximately $8 million, primarily to upgrade resources to reserves at Palmarejo, Kensington, and Rochester. Nearly half of the $8 million increase will go toward expensed exploration activities and results in an increase to our full-year expensed exploration guidance range to $14 - $16 million. The other half of the $8 million increase will go toward capitalized exploration, resulting in an increase to our full-year guidance range to $16 - $18 million. In addition to this high-return incremental investment in exploration activities, we anticipate increasing our capital expenditure budget by an additional $10 million during the second half, bringing the total increase to $15 million for full-year guidance of $105 - $115 million. These additional funds will support additional underground development at Guadalupe and Jualin and will allow us to accelerate the construction of incremental leach pad capacity at Rochester now that all permits have been received.” (see "Non-U.S. GAAP Measures" in the second quarter 2016 results press release)
