COEUR SELECTS CHICAGO AS GLOBAL HEADQUARTERS, ILLINOIS SAYS

(The following is a reformatted version of a press release
issued by Coeur d’Alene Mines Corporation (NYSE: CDE, TSX:CDM)
today joined Governor Pat Quinn’s and received via electronic
mail. The release was confirmed by the sender.) 
March 27, 2013 
COEUR SELECTS CHICAGO AS GLOBAL HEADQUARTERS 
Coeur to Move HQ to Chicago;
Bringing 100 Jobs to the Downtown Area;
Company Will Add 60 Positions in the Coming Year 
Officials from Coeur d’Alene Mines Corporation (NYSE: CDE,
TSX:CDM) today joined Governor Pat Quinn’s administration and
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to announce that Coeur will move its
corporate headquarters to downtown Chicago. 
Coeur is currently headquartered in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, the
company’s home since 1985, and employs nearly 2,000 people
worldwide.  The company expects to complete the move to Chicago
in the third quarter of 2013 and to hire at least 60 employees
at its downtown headquarters by the end of 2014. In addition,
Coeur intends to change its name to Coeur Mining in mid-May
following its Annual Meeting. 
“Coeur today joins the growing number of companies that are
choosing Illinois to invest and grow their business,” Governor
Quinn said. “With our diverse economy, our pool of highly-skilled workers and our world-class transportation
infrastructure, Illinois has what it takes for businesses to
grow. We welcome Coeur and look forward to bringing more global
corporations to Illinois.” 
Because of Governor Quinn and Mayor Emanuel’s consistent message
heralding the advantages of doing business in Chicago and
Illinois, Coeur was able to quickly and confidently make their
decision. 
“Coeur could have chosen any number of cities for its home, but
they chose Chicago because Chicago gives the company its best
opportunity to grow, expand and thrive,” said Mayor Emanuel.
“Coeur needs a global city with a deep talent pool and access to
international markets. I am proud that the city worked to put
its best foot forward and attract this vital company. I look
forward to working with Coeur as they make Chicago their new
home.” 
Coeur is the largest U.S.-based primary silver producer and a
growing gold producer. The Company has four precious metals
mines in the Americas generating strong production, sales and
cash flow in continued robust metals markets. Coeur produces
from its wholly owned operations: the Palmarejo silver-gold mine
in Mexico, the San Bartolomé silver mine in Bolivia, the
Rochester silver-gold mine in Nevada and the Kensington gold
mine in Alaska. The Company also owns a non-operating interest
in a mine in Australia, and conducts ongoing exploration
activities in Mexico, Argentina, Nevada, Alaska and Bolivia. 
“Relocating our headquarters to Illinois will improve our access
to key stakeholders and to our operations,” said Mitchell J.
Krebs, Coeur’s President and CEO. “Chicago is a global, pro-business city, an international transportation hub and provides
access to a broad and deep talent pool. We look forward to our
active involvement in our new community and are proud to call
Chicago our new home.” 
Coeur will receive a state investment package, administered by
the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO). The
package will consist of Economic Development for a Growing
Economy (EDGE) corporate income tax credits, which are based on
job creation, and Employer Training Investment Program (ETIP)
job training funds that will help enhance the skills of its
workforce. The tax credits are performance-based, meaning until
local workers are hired, the company is not eligible for them. 
“Today’s announcement is a testament to Governor Quinn’s
commitment to helping employers create and keep jobs in our
state,” DCEO Director Adam Pollet said. “Last year, more than
300 corporate facilities moved to or expanded in Illinois,
putting our state among the top five states in the nation for
attracting business.” 
To attract Coeur, Mayor Emanuel and Governor Quinn worked with
World Business Chicago and other organizations to ensure that
the Company had a good sense of what the city and state could
offer. One of the key tenets of World Business Chicago’s Plan
for Economic Growth and Jobs is the attraction of corporate
headquarters to Chicago, and staff from WBC and DCEO worked with
Coeur through every step of the process to ensure that Chicago
was the company’s ultimate choice. Coeur’s relocation to Chicago
marks the 14th corporate headquarters to come to the City during
Mayor Emanuel’s administration. 
“World Business Chicago helps advance the Mayor’s mission to
attract companies to Chicago,” said Michael Sacks, vice-chairman
of World Business Chicago. “In the case of Coeur, WBC was able
to bring business and civic leaders into the discussion to
showcase the city’s assets. We look forward to helping Coeur
integrate into Chicago’s business community.”
