Coeur d’Alene Mines Corporation

“We are very pleased to announce that our

“In tandem with this, Coeur has significantly strengthened
its operations management team to secure the company’s
position as it moves to its next level of strategic growth.

Production at San Bartolomé remains on schedule
to begin producing nine million ounces of silver annually,
beginning in February.

Additionally, construction at Kensington is over 90%

In light of yesterdays earnings report I think CDE deserves a post. They earned a penny when analysts were predicting a loss. S&P recently downgraded them from B- to CCC because they said they expected them to have cash problems next fall. I think the release shows that won't be the case. Once S&P upgrades them (at some point will have to happen if CDE reports are true) CDE should get a nice pop. The shorts should start to cover soon. All I can see is upward pressure for the coming months even if silver continues retracing a bit.

Anyone else out here with some analysis?

Thanks ... Dave

I honestly wish I new, I used to really look for the news and there was a glimmer or two of hope, I was onsite working on a concrete plant and can't believe the deal got shut down after the permit was in place. There was-is alot of cash in play that is setting idle at this point. They are crushing rock for CHr%^%$#^%$st Sake not using water cannons or acid.

Where is the best place to read about the Alask problems? I know they have an appeal pending but I'm not up to speed on what really happened there.
