Financial Review

Revenues
Revenue was $200 million in the second quarter of 2017, on sales volume of 6.4 million ounces of silver and 72,000 ounces of gold. This represents a 6% decrease from the $212 million of revenue generated in the second quarter of 2016 due primarily to an 11% decrease in the number of silver ounces sold, partially offset by a 2% increase in the number of gold ounces sold.

Costs and Expenses
Average cash costs2 in the second quarter of 2017 were $4.51 per silver ounce sold and $393 per gold ounce sold, as compared with $4.46 per silver ounce and $401 per gold ounce during the comparable period of 2016. This resulted in a cash operating margin2 of $12.58 per silver ounce sold and $870 per gold ounce sold, a decrease of 1% per silver ounce sold while the cash operating margin2 per ounce of gold sold was virtually unchanged as compared with Q2 2016. The decrease in the cash operating margin was primarily due to a 1% decrease in the average realized silver price in Q2 2017 compared with Q2 2016.

Earnings and Operating Cash Flows
Net earnings and cash flow from operations in the second quarter of 2017 were $68 million ($0.15 per share) and $125 million ($0.28 per share2), compared with $60 million ($0.14 per share) and $134 million ($0.31 per share2) for the same period in 2016, an increase of 12% and a decrease of 7%, respectively.

Balance Sheet
At June 30, 2017, the Company had approximately $77 million of cash on hand and $953 million outstanding under the Company's $2 billion revolving term loan (the "Revolving Facility").

Second Quarter Asset Highlights

During the second quarter of 2017, attributable production was 7.2 million ounces of silver and 78,100 ounces of gold, respectively, representing a decrease of 5% and an increase of 10%, as compared with the second quarter of 2016.

Operational highlights for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, based upon counterparties' reporting, are as follows:

Salobo
In the second quarter of 2017, Salobo produced 57,500 ounces of attributable gold, an increase of approximately 61% relative to the second quarter of 2016. This growth was primarily due to the acquisition of an additional 25% of attributable gold from the Salobo mine in the third quarter of 2016. According to Vale S.A.'s ("Vale") second quarter of 2017 production report, production was positively impacted mainly due to higher feed grades and stronger plant performance in the second quarter.

Peñasquito
In the second quarter of 2017, Peñasquito produced 1.5 million ounces of attributable silver, an increase of approximately 71% relative to the second quarter of 2016. According to Goldcorp Inc.'s ("Goldcorp") second quarter of 2017 MD&A, higher production at Peñasquito was primarily due to higher grade ore as a result of mine sequencing in Phases 5 and 6, and higher mill throughput as the second quarter of 2016 included a prolonged period of planned and unplanned maintenance.
