COEUR TO DELIST FROM AUSTRALIAN STOCK EXCHANGE (ASX)
COEUR DALENE, Idaho September 14, 2010 Coeur dAlene Mines Corporation (NYSE:CDE; TSX:CDM;
ASX:CXC) today announced details of its proposed delisting from the official list of ASX Limited
(ASX) effective from the close of market on December 14, 2010.
Coeurs common shares are currently listed for trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and
the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX). Additionally, Coeurs CHESS Depositary Interests (CDIs) are
traded on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) under the code CXC. CHESS is the electronic
settlement system used in Australia.
Coeur was admitted to the official list of the ASX on December 12, 2007. Today, Coeurs number of
CDIs quoted on the ASX represents only approximately 4.95% of the total number of outstanding Coeur
common shares. Coeurs decision to delist is due to the low level of CDIs now quoted on the ASX
compared to Coeurs current issued share capital and the low level of trading on the ASX compared
to the NYSE and TSX. Coeur has formed the view that sustaining the administrative costs of an ASX
listing, including the higher level of regulatory compliance costs associated with multiple
listings, is not justifiable.
Coeur will send CDI holders a letter providing details of the delisting process which will outline:
||the continuation of each CDI holders existing rights to sell their CDIs until
trading of the CDIs is suspended (on 7 December 2010) or convert their CDIs into underlying
Coeur common shares until the end of the voluntary Share Sale Facility (17 February 2011);
||the Share Sale Facility that will be established by Coeur and managed by a broker
to enable Australian registered CDI holders to sell their CDIs for a period of approximately 2
months following the date of Coeurs removal from the official list of the ASX; and
||the arrangements in relation to the remaining shares underlying the CDIs after
the Share Sale Facility closes.
