  • Total capital costs of $87.8 million including contingency but excluding sunk costs up to April 30, 2013.
  • Total pre-tax cash flow of $302.5 million including estimated cost deductions for closure (US$ 5 million) and working capital (US$1.8 million).
  • Base Case pre-tax NPV (DCF @ 5%) of $243.7 million including 2013 estimated net cash flow of $20 million at $1250 /ounce of gold and $19.50/ounce of silver after effective date of April 30, 2013 .
  • IRR of 88% based on incremental project economics excluding sunk costs up to April 30, 2013.
  • Payback period of 1 year.
  • AgEQ based on a ratio of 70:1 which includes average metallurgical recoveries of 92% Au and 67.5% Ag for all milling ores.
Metal price sensitivities were completed including $1250/oz Au and $19.50/oz Ag which showed a pre-tax NPV (DCF @ 5%) of $128.7M (including 2013 est. net cash flow) and an IRR of 49%.
Updated Mineral Reserve and Resource estimations for Santa Elena Mine were announced in a news release dated May 29, 2013 which showed Probable Reserves (underground, open pit and leach pad) at an estimated 8.2 million tonnes grading 74.9 gpt Ag and 1.24 gpt Au containing 19.7 million ounces of silver and 327,430 ounces of gold. Updated Indicated Resources (exclusive of Probable Reserves) were estimated at 2.1 million tonnes grading 114.9 gpt Ag and 1.69 gpt Au containing 7.9 million ounce of silver and 116,000 ounces of gold. Only Mineral Reserves were used in the PFS mine plan, schedule and economic analysis. Mineralization at Santa Elena is open in most directions with excellent potential to further increase resources and reserves for increased production and mine life.
J. Scott Drever, Chairman and CEO commented: “We are extremely pleased with the results of the PFS which confirms our expectations that the transition from our open pit heap leach operation to a conventional mill and underground operation will represent a very attractive project with robust economics even at current reduced metal prices. The 8 year mine life will give SilverCrest a strong corporate cash flow providing a solid foundation for continued systematic and aggressive growth. We look forward to a banner year in 2014 with the commissioning of the new processing facility in the first quarter and the significant expansion of our annual metals production at Santa Elena.”
EXPANSION LIFE OF MINE PLAN
The Santa Elena mine life with updated Reserves is scheduled for an additional 8 years at nominal milling rate of 3,000 tonnes per day. The mine schedule is based on mining long hole stopes (69% by reserve volume) early in the mine life at attractive lower costs with higher cost cut and fill stopes (31% by reserve volume) being mined towards the end of the mine schedule. The average width of proposed stopes is 13.4 metres which is advantageous for lower cost bulk mining methods. SilverCrest envisions a blending strategy during operations at variable rates for mill feed to achieve optimum throughput. A summary of the mine and production schedule is presented below with proposed initial blending strategy.
Investorideas.com Newswire
1 Included for Reserve declaration purposes only but not included in economic analyses for the Expansion
This plan excludes an estimated 750,000 tonnes of heap leach spent ore which will be placed on the pad in 2013 and accounted for in early 2014 as additional material for reprocessing during the mine life.
EXPANSION OPERATING COSTS
The operating cost estimates stated below were compiled using Santa Elena mine site operating experience, SilverCrest financial and operational reports, recent contractor quotes, other local producing mines and industry estimations in Mexico to a Pre-Feasibility level.
Investorideas.com Newswire
1 Long hole stopes are 69% of designed stopes by volume and cut & fill stopes are 31% of designed stopes by reserve volume. Excludes ore development costs. $/t inclusive of ore dev. Is estimated at $21 to $48.
2 Processing includes crushing, milling, site refining and dry stack tailings disposal.
3 Estimated based on current operations and may vary on an annual basis.
EXPANSION CAPITAL COSTS
The capital cost estimates stated below were compiled using Santa Elena mine site experience, recent contractor quotes, other local producing mines and industry estimations in Mexico to a Pre-Feasibility level.
Investorideas.com Newswire EXPANSION ECONOMIC ANALYSIS
Pre-Feasibility level economic analyses were completed for both pre-tax and post-tax. Base Case pre-tax results are stated as follows;
Investorideas.com Newswire
1 Operating cost per AgEQ oz. sold varies between $9.6 and $12.6 over the life of mine
2 Excludes sunk costs, up to April 30, 2013, closure costs and working capital
3 Includes deductions of $5 million for closure costs and $1.8 million for working capital
4 Includes 2013 estimated net cash flow after effective date of April 30, 2013
5 The IRR presented here do not reflect total project economics but reflect incremental project economics as they do not include sunk costs for the Santa Elena expansion prior to April 30 2013
The economic analyses consider SilverCrest delivering a remaining 31,000 ounces of gold (2014 and beyond) to Sandstorm Gold Ltd. (Sandstorm) at a price of $350/oz under the Sandstorm Purchase Agreement executed on May14th, 2009. It does not include the option held by Sandstorm to participate in the future underground mine production which would require payment by Sandstorm of 20% (pro-rata of gold) of the capital costs with a subsequent increase of gold price for 20% of produced ounces to $450/oz Au. Sandstorm may elect to participate in the expansion, once SilverCrest provides a preliminary technical report that includes amongst other items; the required capital costs associated with the transition from open pit heap leaching to a conventional mill facility and underground mine.
EXPANSION PRE-FEASIBILTY RECOMMENDATIONS
Further optimization of the mine schedule is warranted to investigate grade optimization versus stoping costs (long hole or cut and fill), potential to expand and accelerate increased underground production with a second ramp for the bottom of the pit and expand milling capacity. These optimizations will be addressed in detail after successfully announcing commercial production for the new mill facility in 2014. Mineralization at Santa Elena is open in most directions with excellent potential to further increase resources and reserves for increased production and mine life. Further infill and expansion drilling is recommended.

Vancouver, British Columbia - July 17, 2013 (Investorideas.com Mining Stocks Newswire) SilverCrest Mines Inc. (TSX.V:SVL) ( NYSE MKT: SVLC) is pleased to announce production numbers for the second quarter of 2013 from its 100% owned Santa Elena Mine located in Sonora, Mexico.

Production Highlights of Q2, 2013 vs Q1, 2013;
  • Record silver production of 194,022 ounces; a 26% increase from Q1.
  • Gold production of 7,463 ounces; a 3% increase from Q1.
  • Silver equivalent production of 665,684 ounces; a 20% increase from Q1.
  • Waste to ore ratio was consistent with the mine plan at 2.52; a 41% decrease from Q1.
  • Ore Tonnes crushed increased 18% to 307,091 tonnes with throughput averaging 3,375 tpd.
  • Total ounces delivered to the pads increased significantly by 25% and 13% for silver and gold respectively.
J. Scott Drever, Chairman and CEO stated; "We are pleased with production results for the second quarter which tracked well to budget. For the first six months of 2013, silver production was 347,503 ounces (11% above budget) and gold production was 14,688 ounces (11% below budget). We are starting to mine the planned higher ore grades from open pit so anticipate increased ounces produced in the second half of 2013. Based on continually exceeding forecasted silver ounces produced each month, we are increasing our annual silver production guidance from 625,000 ounces to 675,000 ounces. We are maintaining our annual gold production guidance of 33,000 ounces for 2013".
Management has responded to the recent sharp decline in metal prices by re-enforcing ongoing disciplined cost and capital reduction measures to maintain 2013 cash cost at or below US$8.50 per silver equivalent ounce enabling the Company to complete all major capital expenditures associated with the Santa Elena Expansion.
Investorideas.com Newswire
(1) Silver equivalence is based on market spot prices per ounce of silver and gold at the quarter end dates. All numbers are rounded.
(2) Average strip ratio for 2013, is projected at 2.7:1. Q1, 2013 strip ratio of 4.27:1 was higher than projected due to accelerating waste removal.
Q2 2013 Santa Elena Expansion Update:
  • As of June 30, 2013, approximately 65% of the budgeted 2013 capital cost of US$65M has been committed. The Santa Elena Expansion is currently on time and budget with scheduled mill start up in January 2014.
  • Approximately 2,000 metres of underground development have been completed (project to date) including a crosscut on the 625 metre level that has intersected and exposed the deposit where the exploration model projected its location. A crosscut (hanging wall to footwall) to expose the ore body has been completed showing a mineralized true thickness of 13 metres with a chip - channel sampling grade (uncut) of 3.4 gpt Au and 718.8 gpt Ag which is consistent with the Reserve model. Development has been driven on the footwall contact of mineralization for an estimated 70 metres in preparation for 2014 production. Muck and chip samples from development in mineralization have graded up to 11.1 gpt Au and 2,690 gpt Ag. Approximately 5,000 tonnes of ore development material has been crushed and delivered to the leach pad for partial metal recovery with anticipated reprocessing through the new process facility, once completed.
  • In May 2013, significant water was encountered underground while doing ore development on the 625 metre level. Pumping volumes to date are manageable with mine development continuing. A hydrology study has been implemented to assess potential long-term water volumes which may be considered an asset for desert operating conditions
  • .
  • On-site construction of the 3,000 tonne per day mill is well underway with earthworks complete, concrete for major foundations poured and CCD tank and thickener construction near completion. Major equipment has been delivered to site including; new cone crushers and generators (see attached photo dated July 6, 2013: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/886966.jpg and refer to www.silvercrestmines.com for additional construction photos.)
  • The majority of the construction contracts are in place with numerous contractors currently working safely on site.
  • SilverCrest completed all drilling required to define and expand the Resources and Reserves with revised numbers announced in a news release dated May 29, 2013. The Santa Elena Expansion Pre-Feasibility Study will be filed this month.
  • Several drill holes that are not included in the Santa Elena Expansion Pre-Feasibility Study (Resources and Reserves) have yet to be released. These holes represent potential for further expansion of resources and will be reported when compilation is completed.
  • An underground definition drilling program, aiming delineation of initial production stopes is planned for completion in H2 2013, to assist in the preparation for mining in 2014.
Second Quarter Financial Results Release:
The Company plans to issue its second quarter financial results on Wednesday, August 14, 2013.

Mining Stock Alert: SilverCrest (TSX.V: SVL) (NYSE MKT: SVLC) Arranges $40 Million Credit Facility with Scotiabank

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - July 12, 2013 (Investorideas.com Mining Stocks Newswire) SilverCrest Mines Inc. (TSX.V:SVL) ( NYSE MKT: SVLC) ("SilverCrest" or the "Company") announces that it has entered into a three year US$40 million secured corporate credit facility (the "Facility") with The Bank of Nova Scotia ("Scotiabank"). The credit limit available under the Facility will reduce by US$10 million on each of July 11, 2014 and July 11, 2015, and will mature on July 11, 2016, subject to a one year extension of these dates by mutual agreement. The Facility is to be used for general corporate purposes and to complete the Santa Elena Mine Expansion ("Expansion") which will release operational cash flow for other corporate purposes. The Expansion at Santa Elena includes development of the underground mine and a new 3,000 tonnes per day processing plant. The Facility is principally secured by a pledge of the Company’s equity interests in its material subsidiaries, including Nusantara de Mexico S.A. de C.V., and SilverCrest de Mexico S.A. de C.V., and their assets. Depending on the Company’s total indebtedness to EBITDA ratio, the interest rate margin on the Facility will, at the Company’s election, range from either 3.00% to 4.25% over LIBOR, or 2.00% to 3.25% over Scotiabank’s Base Rate in Canada. The availability of the Facility is subject to customary conditions precedent and qualitative and quantitative covenants and the release of existing security held by Macquarie Bank Limited. Until all security for the Facility has been registered in Mexico, the amount available under the Facility will be limited to US$15 million.

As a result of the increase in metal production afforded by the Expansion, the Santa Elena Mine is expected to generate additional operating cash-flow once the new plant is fully-operational in the first half of 2014. This increase in cash flow should enable the Company to continue funding its capital and exploration projects from operating cash flow.
J. Scott Drever, Chairman and CEO stated: “We are pleased to establish this relationship with an institution of the calibre of Scotiabank. At current precious metals prices, we are confident that our financial situation will enable us to complete the major capital expenditures associated with the Santa Elena Expansion. This Facility strengthens our overall financial position and will free up cash flow to enable us to pursue other corporate opportunities for growth.”

Additional test work and engineering associated with identified potential opportunities are being carried out. A supplemental budget of $26.1 million (100%) was approved covering the period from December 2012 through February 2013 and included trade-off studies to conform the optimum size of the project, additional land acquisitions, exploration and development drilling and community and social programs. Each partner has funded its share of expenditures pro-rata. Based on positive exploration results, exploration and development drilling will continue through July 2013 to better define the mineral resource and assure that the optimum plant size is determined. Work programs and engineering associated with the completion of the Environmental Impact Assessment ("EIA") will also be completed during this period so that the EIA can be submitted to government authorities in August 2013. As a result of this additional work, the final prefeasibility results will be complete in the third quarter of 2013.
