Update on Restructuring Transaction

On October 30, 2015, the Company commenced proceedings under the Canada Business Corporations Act (the "CBCA Proceedings") to implement a restructuring transaction (the "Restructuring Transaction") under which all of the Company's debt obligations under the Company's amended and restated senior secured credit facility dated April 29, 2014, will be extinguished. As a result of the Restructuring Transaction, the Company will be able to retain all of its assets, other than certain Mexican subsidiaries that hold the La Negra mine, and will have sufficient working capital to meet its near-term obligations and continue with the Shafter mine as its principal project.

The Company received TSX Venture Exchange acceptance of the Restructuring Transaction on November 27, 2015.

The intended closing date of the Restructuring Transaction has been extended to December 16, 2015, in order to provide time to comply with certain Mexican corporate law requirements.
