Series, will focus on Coeur d’Alene Mines’ successful approach to addressing
the unique challenges of operating its San Bartolomé silver mine near the

Room 803AB, Silver Session 2. Ms. Yang will provide an overview of Coeur’s

Paul Hohbach, Coeur’s Director of Exploration, will present during the Silver
Session on Wednesday, March 6 at 10:50 a.m. ET at the Convention Centre, South
Building in Room 713. Mr. Hohbach will present a paper co-authored by his

American Production. This paper  highlights current major silver mines in the
western United States, including Coeur’s longest running operation, the
Rochester silver-gold mine in Nevada, which is ramping up silver production
