SilverCrest Mines Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SVL) (NYSE MKT:SVLC) is a Canadian precious metals producer headquartered in Vancouver, BC. SilverCrest's flagship property is the 100%-owned Santa Elena Mine, which is located 150km northeast of Hermosillo, near Banamichi in the State of Sonora, Mexico. The mine is a high-grade, epithermal gold and silver deposit, with an estimated life of mine cash cost of US$8 per ounce of silver equivalent (55:1 Ag:Au). SilverCrest anticipates that the 2,500 tonnes per day facility should recover approximately 4,805,000 ounces of silver and 179,000 ounces of gold over the 6.5 year life of the open pit phase of the Santa Elena Mine.

These statements relate to analyses and other information that are based on expectationsof future performance, including silver and gold production and planned work programs. Statements concerning reserves and mineral resource estimates may also constituteforward‐looking statements to the extent that they involve estimates of the mineralization that will be encountered if the property is developed and, in the case of mineralreserves, such statements reflect the conclusion based on certain assumptions that the mineral deposit can be economically exploited.Forward‐looking statements are subject to a variety of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which could cause actual events or results to differ from thoseexpressed or implied by the forward‐looking statements, including, without limitation: risks related to precious and base metal price fluctuations; risks related to fluctuations in thecurrency markets (particularly the Mexican peso, Canadian dollar and United States dollar); risks related to the inherently dangerous activity of mining, including conditions or eventsbeyond our control, and operating or technical difficulties in mineral exploration, development and mining activities; uncertainty in the Company’s ability to raise financing and fundthe exploration and development of its mineral properties; uncertainty as to actual capital costs, operating costs, production and economic returns, and uncertainty thatdevelopment activities will result in profitable mining operations; risks related to reserves and mineral resource figures being estimates based on interpretations and assumptionswhich may result in less mineral production under actual conditions than is currently estimated and to diminishing quantities or grades of mineral reserves as properties are mined;risks related to governmental regulations and obtaining necessary licenses and permits; risks related to the business being subject to environmental laws and regulations which mayincrease costs of doing business and restrict our operations; risks related to mineral properties being subject to prior unregistered agreements, transfers, or claims and other defectsin title; risks relating to inadequate insurance or inability to obtain insurance; risks related to potential litigation; risks related to the global economy; risks related to the Company’sstatus as a foreign private issuer in the United States; risks related to all of the Company’s properties being located in Mexico and El Salvador, including political, economic, social andregulatory instability; and risks related to officers and directors becoming associated with other natural resource companies which may give rise to conflicts of interests.Should one or more of these risks and uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those describedin theforward‐looking statements.
