Arturo Prestamo, president and CEO of Santacruz, commented:

During the third quarter the Rosario Mine made significant steps towards continued improvements in operational performance. Over the quarter we transitioned from third party contract mining to our in-house mining operations team, which carried additional costs for third quarter, but benefits will be reflected in the following quarters and years to come. With this move we will be able to continue to reduce the mining costs at the Rosario Mine. In addition, the Company commenced using a new permanent tailings disposal system that utilizes dry-stacking technology in conjunction with the prior existing tailings structure. Operating costs are also expected to decrease as a result of the implementation of this system.
Further, we are excited to begin delivering mill feed from the new Veta Grande project to the Rosario Mine milling facility. This additional mill throughput will also help to reduce the operating costs and increase production as we move forward during the fourth quarter. The completion of this process also accomplishes a second corporate objective, that being the diversification of the Company’s operations base.
