Coeur d'Alene Mines Announces Withdrawal of Proposed Offering of Senior Notes

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 3, 2012--
Coeur d'Alene Mines Corporation (the "Company" or "Coeur") (NYSE:
CDE)(TSX: CDM) today announced that in light of current capital market
conditions it has decided not to proceed with its previously announced
offering of senior notes at this time.

"Weak overall conditions in the debt markets led us to conclude that the
proposed offering of senior notes would not be in the best interest of
shareholders under the terms currently available," stated Mitchell J.
Krebs, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We had hoped to
opportunistically access the debt markets to augment our already strong
balance sheet, but we will only do so in a disciplined manner. We will
continue our focus on creating shareholder value through operational
consistency, cost containment, disciplined growth, and maintaining a
conservative financial profile."
