Material Relationships with Asarco

      The shares of common stock covered by this prospectus supplement were received by Asarco in exchange for our acquisition of silver assets and properties from Asarco on September 9, 1999. At the time of that initial acquisition, we entered into various agreements with Asarco governing our relationship. Under these agreements, Asarco had the right to request that we register its shares of our common stock under the Securities Act of 1933. We have registered the shares of common stock offered hereby by Asarco pursuant to Asarco’s exercise of such rights.

      In connection with Asarco’s exercise of its registration rights, we also entered into a side agreement with Asarco, dated January 6, 2003, to amend the various agreements previously entered into at the time of the initial acquisition of the shares. Under this side agreement, we agreed with Asarco as follows:

  •  Termination of Director Rights. Asarco agreed to cause the directors that had been nominated by Asarco under the shareholders’ agreement between Asarco and us, namely Xavier Garcia de Quevedo Topete and Daniel Tellechea Salido, to resign from our board of directors. The resignations of those persons were effective on January 7, 2003. Asarco also waived any right to nominate directors in the future.
  •  Nature of Widely Distributed Public Offerings. In connection with its initial acquisition of shares of our common stock, Asarco had previously agreed, pursuant to the transaction agreement between Asarco and us, that during the five years following such acquisition it would not, without our prior consent, sell shares other than to an affiliate of Asarco or in a widely distributed public offering. Pursuant to the January 2003 side agreement, Asarco agreed that it will limit its sales of such shares so that prior to September 9, 2004, no individual purchaser will purchase in excess of 500,000 shares.



  •  Termination of Corporate Governance Rights. Under the shareholders’ agreement, we had agreed that, until Asarco holds less than 10% of our outstanding common stock, a number of specified actions by us would require the prior written consent of Asarco. These specified actions included, among others, (i) the approval of capital expenditure budgets and specified proposed borrowings or liens, (ii) any proposed liquidation, dissolution or bankruptcy proceeding, (iii) any material change in the nature of our business, (iv) specified issuances of equity, and (v) material amendment of our By-Laws or Articles of Incorporation or any increase in the number of directors above eleven. Pursuant to the January 2003 side agreement, Asarco agreed to waive its approval authority for any of these specified actions and we are no longer obligated to seek the prior approval of Asarco with respect to any such actions.

      Under the shareholders’ agreement entered into in connection with Asarco’s initial acquisition of shares, Asarco agreed that without the consent of our board of directors, Asarco will not acquire common stock or other voting securities of Coeur, or any rights or options to buy any of such securities, if after any such acquisition, Asarco would own more than 20% of the total voting power of all our outstanding voting securities. This provision was not amended pursuant to the January 2003 side agreement and it remains in effect.

      Asarco was acquired by Grupo Mexico S.A. on November 17, 1999, subsequent to our entering into the shareholders’ agreement.

      Asarco, the prior lessee of Coeur’s Rochester mine, also has a net smelter royalty interest that is payable only when the market price of silver equals or exceeds $17.57 per ounce up to maximum rate of 5%. No royalties were required to be paid by Coeur during the three years ended December 31, 2002.

Certain legal matters relating to the registration of the shares under the Securities Act of 1933 have been passed upon for us by Foley & Lardner, Washington, D.C.
