Golden Minerals is a $115 million market cap company with an average daily trading volume of 254,000 shares. The company was formerly known as Apex Silver and its headquarters is in Golden, Colorado. AUMN completed its merger with ECU Silver in September of this year. The Velardena district property in Mexico, is in the production ramp-up stage. It contains a M&I resource of 40 million AgEq ounces and has 391 million AgEq ounces inferred. The PEA for Velardena should be complete in Q2 of next year. Per AUMN as of March 2011, the total resource of nearly 500 million AgEq ounces (M&I plus inferred) leads all the junior producer peers. Additionally, it has the promising El Quevar project in Argentina, in the project evaluation stage as well as the advanced exploration Zacatecas project in Mexico. It has support from its largest shareholder- the powerful Sentient Group as well as Sprott Assets. The stock is down 75% from its 52-week high.

  • 2012 Forecasted Prodcution (Silver equivalent calculated at 50:1 Ag:Au)
GOLDEN, CO--(Marketwire -01/11/12)- Golden Minerals Company (AMEX: AUMN - News) (TSX: AUM.TO - News) ("Golden Minerals" or "the Company") is pleased to report significant operating improvements at the Velardeña Operations, located in the State of Durango, Mexico, since the merger with ECU Silver on September 2, 2011. The Company also announced plans to rationalize its extensive exploration portfolio.

Velardeña Operations

Payable metals production for September through year-end 2011 exceeded guidance previously provided in September by approximately 30% for gold and 114% for silver, primarily due to the increase in head grades resulting from reduced dilution. The following table shows actual production compared to the previous forecast for September through December 2011. Also shown is the updated 2012 forecast production for gold and silver.


Full
Sep-Dec Sep-Dec Year
'11 Fcst '11 Act Q1 2012 Q2 2012 Q3 2012 Q4 2012 2012

Silver (oz) 42,000 90,000 90,000 150,000 230,000 270,000 740,000
The 2012 Forecasted Production chart shows gold and silver production in silver equivalent ounces. Lead and zinc production are not included. Amounts shown are September through December 2011 actual gold and silver production compared to the previous forecast production, and forecast production for 2012.
Since the merger with ECU Silver, Golden has made significant operating improvements at the Velardeña Operations. Golden's primary focus has been on improving head grade in the feed supplied to the mills and on moving underground mine development outside the mineral veins. The December average head grade for gold and silver in material supplied to the oxide mill has improved by approximately 70% over the August average head grade (from approximately 1.5 grams per tonne to 2.5 grams per tonne for gold and approximately 90 grams per tonne to 150 grams per tonne for silver). The December average head grade in material supplied to the sulfide mill has also improved significantly to approximately 2.0 grams per tonne gold, 174 grams per tonne silver, 1.7% lead and 2.0% zinc. The improvements are primarily related to moving underground development outside the vein, resulting in reduced dilution of plant feed. The Company has completed approximately 1,200 meters of mine development since early September and has commenced excavation on the San Mateo Ramp, the main production ramp that will access six major ore zones.

Golden has also commenced plant optimization and other work to improve recoveries and product quality in both the oxide and sulfide plants. The Company plans to add a flotation circuit ahead of the current oxide plant to recover and divert to the sulfide plant more of the sulfide material that is currently mixed with the oxides. Based on these efforts, the Company expects the Velardeña Operations to be operationally cash flow positive in mid-year 2012 at current metals prices.

Safety related improvements at the Velardeña Operations have included the installation of 15 face ventilation fans, establishment of three trained and equipped mine rescue teams and safety refresher training for all personnel.

In addition, the Company has commenced engineering studies for a phased expansion of the sulfide plant by adding an additional ball mill, flotation cells and concentrate handling equipment. The phased expansion is expected to increase the sulfide plant's capacity from 320 to 650 tonnes per day which, along with operational improvements to the existing 500 tonne per day oxide plant, could result in annual production rates of up to 2 million ounces of silver and 29,000 ounces of gold by 2013. Expenditures for this phased expansion will be available later in the first quarter and are expected to be in the range of $10.0 million. The phased expansion would allow for an interim production increase pending completion of the proposed 2,000 tonne per day plant, which might occur as early as 2015. The 2,000 tonne per day sulfide plant could result in annual production of up to approximately 4 million ounces of silver and 80,000 ounces of gold.

As was previously announced, the Company expects to complete an updated NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate for the Velardeña Operations towards the end of the first quarter 2012. The independent consulting firm of Chlumsky Armbrust and Meyer (CAM) has been retained to provide the updated resource estimate.

The Company also expects to complete a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) by the end of the third quarter 2012. The PEA will be based on the updated resource estimate and proposed expansion plans for the Velardeña Operations.

Exploration Portfolio

Golden has commenced a process of rationalizing the Company's current exploration portfolio of approximately 80 projects in Mexico, Peru and Argentina. The Company expects the potential monetization of selected assets to generate value as well as significantly reduce greenfield exploration expenditures in 2012 and going forward.

Jeffrey Clevenger, Golden Minerals Chairman, President and CEO, commented, "Management's primary focus is on growing production and establishing the company as an emerging producer." In addition, Mr. Clevenger noted, "This business strategy should allow Golden Minerals to more quickly become self-sufficient and less dependent on raising capital."

El Quevar

An updated NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate on El Quevar is being prepared by the independent consulting firm of Pincock, Allen and Holt (PAH). The updated resource estimate for the El Quevar project is now expected by the end of first quarter 2012. PAH has been asked to include an additional 23 drill holes for which assays have just been received.

About Golden Minerals

bien vu Sandro





Nos lecteurs demandent de temps à autre des nouvelles de golden minerals et ce que je vais poster leur fera plaisir :

Murphy qui est comme nous, toujours actionnaire fait le point, et Wistar Holt analyse le dernier communiqué de la compagnie sur Velardena et la stratégie de la compagnie ( voir le communiqué posté par Sandro, dans le post précédent )



www.lemetropolecafe.com



Veteran Café members know my sad, to euphoric, to horror show tale of my major precious metals investment, ECU Silver … now Golden Minerals. I went to Velardena, Mexico to view ECU’s major property in 1999 and became enthused about its prospects. The share price back then was 25 cents. I bought a bundle and the stock went to a ½ cent and was not allowed to trade for many months. Thinking the stock was a steal (don’t we all), I loaded the boat when the stock began to trade again. Over the years ahead the share price went to $3. From thereon in nothing went right (perception-wise) and its share price plummeted. It fell all the way back to 46 cents, rallied to a buck or so, and then was taken over by Golden Minerals on a 20 to 1 basis (1 GM share for 20 ECU shares).

The logic of the merger made sense. ECU has a world class precious metals deposit in Mexico which was not being developed properly … partly because it was cash starved and was diluting itself into oblivion. Golden Minerals had plenty of cash and its management is known to be first rate, having the experience to develop what they already had in South America and now in Mexico.

Great, right? Well the share price of GM then dropped to $5.23, which was close to a 75% drop in its value. What a nightmare! There are some out there who believe it was targeted by The Gold Cartel because of my GATA role. Others believe it was just part of a hedge fund shorting program. Whatever the reason, the shorts won the battle, burying the former ECU shareholders and the Golden Minerals shareholders in the process.

However, it now appears, finally, the tide has turned. After making a high this morning of $8.69, GM closed today at $8.27, rising around 60% since making a very recent $5.23 low. Word to me is that at last glance there was a "known" short position of 2.5 million shares. The total short position is most likely FAR greater than 2.5 million. I said the shorts "won." They have so far, but ONLY if they cover their shorts soon and before the GM share price goes back to where it should have been all along. The question is, how do they do so without driving the share price sharply higher? We shall see.

Anyways, I am in the Eric Sprott, John Embry camp in that I think the price of silver is going to go bonkers and that the share prices of quality silver producers will do the same.

The old high of Golden Minerals was around $30. There is no reason not to believe its new share high price will not triple that old high in the years ahead (rising to $90 per share) as the prices of gold and silver SOAR.

This is not investment advice but a roller coaster tale. The good news is there are a number of precious metals stocks out there in a similar boat. If you own one, now is the time to pay close attention, not throw in the towel … that is if they have the goods and the low share price makes no sense … not when we have a mania ahead of us in the gold/silver share sector.





GATA’s good friend Wistar Holt thinks like I do on GM…

Dear Clients,
A press release titled, "Golden Minerals (AUMN) Reports Significant Operational Improvements at Velardena and Company Strategic Direction"



(
http://www.goldenminerals.com/press.php)



was issued January 11, 2012 and discusses enhancements that the company made to their gold and silver production in Q4 ’11. Additional improvements in mine development and ore recovery should allow Golden Minerals to expand production throughout 2012 and become operationally cash flow positive by mid-year 2012.

Furthermore, AUMN plans to expand the size of the existing sulfide mill from 320 to 650 tpd. Along with "operational improvements to the existing 500 tpd oxide plant could result in annual production rates of up to 2 million ounces of silver and 29,000 ounces of gold by 2013."

Ultimately, the company plans to construct an additional 2000 tpd sulfide mill which "could result in annual production of up to approximately 4 million ounces of silver and 80,000 ounces of gold" by 2015. At current metal prices, this would generate annual cash flow of $251 million—greater than the ridiculously low market cap that Golden Minerals had declined to at the end of 2011 amidst hedge fund shorting and tax-loss selling. Fortunately, just two weeks into 2012, AUMN has recovered 32% from the 2011 close.

More gains are anticipated as the metal prices continue to recover and the market psychology for the sector continues to improve. Furthermore, John Hathaway, manager of the Tocqueville Gold Fund predicts that a "terrific short squeeze" will trigger a significant recovery for gold and silver mining stocks (attached). According to Hathaway, "We had extreme readings in terms of sentiment, measured any number of ways. Usually that means you are into the dry heave stage where there is nobody left to sell."

Wistar W. Holt
January 11, 2012
wholt@holtshapard.com

Wistar is very sharp as is John Hathaway, whom I have not seen since he came to Dallas about a decade ago. However, his top aide, Doug Groh, came to Gold Rush 21 at our conference in the Yukon in August of 2005. Knock On Wood here, but I am hoping what Golden Minerals has done so far is just the beginning of the "terrific short squeeze."

J'avais en effet, dans mon alerte graphique, chopé le point bas, à quelques centimes près, avant ce rebond de 60%...ye.s clap clap tchin mais je dois à l'honnêteté de reconnaître que c'était aussi un coup de bol, dans la mesure où mon support a été brièvement enfoncé.bon sang , bien sur

Pour autant, avoir raison quelques semaines trop tôt et qui plus est sur un (temporairement) faux signal...ben, ça s'appelle avoir tort, bonnet d'âne il n'en demeure pas moins que les lignes de force et la survente majeure minimisaient les conséquences de ce léger contre-temps...

Bill Murphy, ce soir



www.lemetropolecafe.com





Speaking of Golden Minerals, which is still my largest share position, there is no longer any doubt in my mind there are malign forces out there bent on keeping this share price going from where it ought to. This is probably the case in many of the gold/silver shares, which is why they have acted so poorly for so long.

What happened today blew me away and convinced me what the extent of this short selling of the precious metals shares really is. Let me explain.

Last year Golden Minerals merged with ECU Silver on a 20 to 1 basis, or one share of GM for 20 ECU shares. During the debacle of the last few months of the year, GM was taken down to $5.23, which was the equivalent of 26 cents ECU, a total disaster for any of us who invested in them a decade+ ago at the same price or more. During the downturn over the past couple of years, there were a couple of visible short sellers trashing ECU publicly and making a big deal what a short it was. For whatever the reason they've won out thus far. That’s the way it has been.

However, during the month of January GM has stormed back, still rinky-dink in terms of ECU of old, but still quite an impressive performance, rising all the way to $9.55 this morning. Technically it achieved a major breakout. When, out of nowhere it began to collapse today with the HUI up 10, gold flying, and silver sharply higher. It was clobbered down to $8.78, down 57 cents on the day. We contacted the company to find out if there was any news out, or was there any announcement of insider selling? The answer was no.

What I did learn was that as of January 13 there were still 2,343,799 shorts still on the books. That is the official number. Our guess is that the real number is double that. Today’s action suggests the shorts are not throwing in the towel yet, even with the dramatic inflation announcement by the Fed which ought to send gold and silver shares soaring in the months ahead.

It is my bet that these bums have overstayed their welcome at the party and are going to get blown out over those months. It couldn’t happen to a creepier bunch of fellows. It is also my bet that GM is going to $90 per share when silver soars toward $100 per ounce.. That might sound like a stretch, but it is only a triple from GM’s old high … which is only a ten bagger from here, a move that will be commonplace in the years ahead when the gold/silver share mania kicks in. It is only a question of time before the shorts in GM, and in a number of other precious metals shares, cry "UNCLE." It is only a question at what price they surrender.

What the heck? I wrote the above with GM below $9 per share. It is now unchanged at $9.35. I asked my friend Wistar Holt if he knew what was going on. He came back with:

As of 12:00 CST, AUMN has made a 180 degree turn and is unch at $9.35 on 300M shares.

With gold/silver prices fairly stable over the past 1-2 hours, I can only ascertain three possibilities to this bizarre trading:

1. An ignorant institution bailing the stock recklessly—he won’t be employed long!

2. A brokerage firm haphazardly liquidating a margin call of an institutional client.

3. A short protecting the already-existing 2.3 million share short position and preventing the stock from closing above a technical level of 9.40, as well as an effort to push it below the benchmark $9 level. Then, buying/covering the new shorts placed earlier once the stock began to recover from the $8.78 low. If this is the case, it has only required 50,000 shares to fully recover the loss and the short might be even further exposed.
Wistar

GM closed at $9.16, below its breakout point.

suite à l'AK annoncée plus haut, et parceque le produit de cette AK sera utilisé productivement

Citation :
In its most recent production update, AUMN mentioned that with about $20M of funding, it will be able to expand production to 2M oz. of silver by 2Q 2013, and then with extra $50M, further expand to 4M oz. by the end of 2014. At that volume, its cash cost per oz. will be less than $7, so at $37 silver (I think silver is going to be MUCH higher by the end of 2014, since U.S. employment is not going to improve markedly and the Fed will keep buying the MBS securities for a long time), AUMN will be making $30 of cash profit on each oz., for a total cashflow of $120M per year. Its current market cap is only $210M, so its market cap would have to rise A LOT by the end of 2014 (it will rise steadily as AUMN keeps increasing its production).


Seeking Alpha est positif, et pense que dès que l'AK sera close ( ce qui doit etre le cas, à présent), le cours devrait remonter, puisque les hedges fund ne pourront plus acheter à 5.75$

Citation :


Dans sa mise à jour la plus récente production, AUMN mentionné que, avec environ 20 millions de dollars de financement, il sera en mesure d'accroître sa production pour 2M oz de l'argent par 2Q 2013, puis à 50 millions de dollars supplémentaires, d'étendre à oz 4M. d'ici la fin de l'année 2014.

À ce volume, son coût au comptant par once. sera inférieur à 7 $, de sorte à $ 37 d'argent (je pense que l'argent va être beaucoup plus élevé d'ici la fin de l'année 2014, étant donné que l'emploi américain ne va pas s'améliorer sensiblement et la Fed va continuer à acheter des titres MBS pendant une longue période), AUMN fera bénéfice de 30 dollars en espèces sur chaque once, pour un total des flux de trésorerie de 120 millions de dollars par an. Sa capitalisation boursière actuelle est de seulement $ 210M, et devrait augmenter BEAUCOUP d'ici la fin de 2014 (elle augmentera de façon constante que AUMN ne cesse d'augmenter sa
production).

Golden Minerals Co : Golden Minerals Announces Third Quarter Results and $2.0 Million in Exploration Property Sales





GOLDEN, Colo., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Golden Minerals Company ("Golden Minerals" or the "Company") (NYSE MKT: AUMN) (TSX: AUM) announces results for the quarter ending September 30, 2012 and $2.0 million in fourth quarter exploration property sales.


Financial Results





For the third quarter 2012, Golden Minerals recorded a 45 percent increase in revenue to $7.1 million from the sale of metals at its Velardena Operations in Mexico, as compared to revenue of $4.9 million in the second quarter 2012. Also during the third quarter, the Company recorded a $57.2 million non-cash reduction in goodwill related to its September 2011 transaction with ECU Silver Mining Inc. The goodwill was initially established primarily as a result of recognizing, for accounting purposes, a deferred tax liability for the difference between the fair value of the Velardena property acquired in the ECU transaction and the Mexican tax basis of the property. Since September 2011, an approximate 20% decrease in forecasted future gold and silver prices and certain changes to assumptions related to the long term operating plan for the Velardena Operations has resulted in the reduction of goodwill. There was no reduction in the carrying value of the long-lived Velardena property.





The Company's cash and short term investments balance increased by $30.9 million during the quarter to $54.0 million as of September 30, 2012. The increase is due to $36.9 million in net proceeds received from a registered offering and private placement of our securities during the quarter, offset by the expenditures described above plus capital expenditures of $2.0 million and an increase in net working capital of $2.2 million, both related primarily to the Velardena Operations.

démission du vice président Jerry.W.Danni



GOLDEN, Colo., Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Golden Minerals Company (NYSE MKT: AUMN; TSX: AUM)("Golden Minerals" or "the Company") today announced that Jerry W. Danni, Executive Vice President of Golden Minerals Company, has resigned from his position effective November 30, 2012 to pursue another career opportunity.



http://finance.yahoo.com/news/golden-minerals-announces-resignation-executive-123000999.html



mmouais , c'est jamais bon signe ça !!!

pour info un certain silverbull50 poste ceci sur agoracom, aucune id de qui est ce gars là !
il a apparemment interviewé Jerry Danni, qui rejoindrait Goldcorp

et "tout ça ne change rien etc etc etc "

Citation :


AUMN: Spoke at length with Danni regarding his departure

posted on Nov 28, 12 10:36AM(Log in to use the IP Check tool)[?]

I'll list the important points he stressed:

1. He is taking a position with Goldcorp in the Environmental area, which has been his forte throughout his career. The announcement was just approved this morning and will be announced shortly by GG.

2. He stressed that the resource at Valardena is everything AUMN anticipated with "bottomless" mineral and excellent grades.

3. They are currently producing near 1 million silver-eq. ounces at 500 tpd. At 850 tpd in Q3 '13 they will be producing near 2 million silver-eq. ounces annually. At 1150 tpd (Q4 '14) they still project 3.5- 4.0 million silver-eq ounces. At merely $30/oz. silver, that provides $105-120 million cash flow annually. Excluding cash, that is a 1:1 cash flow--market cap ratio. AEM and GG trade at 10-15 X cash flow as a comparison.

4. Overhead costs will decline with his departure.

5. Q4 '12 production progressing as expected.

6. He remains a large shareholder and will retain his residence in Golden, Co. and commute to Vancouver (GG) for the next two years.

7. IMO, there appears to be zero skeletons related to Danni's departure.

8. Karen Winkler will remain IR and Bob Vogel--CFO will inherit some of Danni's responsibilities.

AUMN 4.10 -0.51

GOLDEN, Colo., Jan. 17, 2013 /CNW/ - Golden Minerals Company (NYSE MKT: AUMN; TSX: AUM) ("Golden Minerals" or "the Company") provides production results from the Velardena Operations for the fourth quarter 2012.
(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120803/LA52082LOGO)
Payable production during the fourth quarter 2012 totaled a record of approximately 134,000 ounces of silver, an increase of about 13 percent over third quarter 2012 production and 72 percent greater than the fourth quarter 2011. Payable gold production during the fourth quarter 2012 was 1,300 ounces, about 33 percent less than the third quarter 2012 production and an increase of about eight percent above the fourth quarter 2011. Full year 2012 payable production totaled approximately 457,000 ounces of silver and 6,500 ounces of gold for a total of about 782,000 silver equivalent ounces for silver and gold only (equivalents calculated at 50:1).

Additionally, the Company produced approximately 330,000 pounds of payable lead and 480,000 pounds of payable zinc during the fourth quarter, bringing full year 2012 production to approximately 1.0 million pounds of lead and 1.4 million pounds of zinc.

Record silver production for the fourth quarter was achieved primarily due to efforts to reduce dilution to the ore feeding the mills, with a 45% increase in grade for the fourth quarter as compared to the first quarter. Gold production during the fourth quarter 2012 was negatively impacted by lower gold recovery at the Company's processing plants primarily due to the occurrence of different mineralogy in some of the newly developed ore areas and to a lesser extent by reduced tonnes mined during the fourth quarter due primarily to shortages of miners as previously reported. The Company is currently working to improve gold recoveries for the recently encountered ore, including testing different reagents and grinds in the sulfide plant, and conducting various tests to determine the ores or blend of ores that yield the best results in each plant. The Company is working with its unions to improve miner availability and have recovered about half of the shortfall.
The Company currently expects throughput rates at Velardena ranging from approximately 500 to 600 tonnes per day in 2013, ramping up late in the year with achievement of an 850 tonne per day production rate in late 2013 or early 2014. The Company is focused on improving gold recoveries, continued optimization of the plants and mine plan, and completion of the San Mateo ramp, which is expected in the fourth quarter 2013 as previously reported. The San Mateo ramp, which will permit trucking of ore from the productive Santa Juana mining unit to the concentrating facilities on the surface, should increase the amount of daily production from Santa Juana, as ore currently must be hoisted through an internal shaft with limited capacity. Prior to completion of the ramp, the Company had planned to augment material from Santa Juana with vein material from other mining areas to achieve a daily production rate of 850 tonnes per day in the third quarter 2013. However, recent mining in two of the other mining areas has encountered narrower veins than anticipated, making the earlier ramp-up less attractive.

la News a disparu, AUMN refuse d'exécuter un paiement de 8M$ en attendant une décision judiciaire en appel à venir...

Bon, je ne connais pas la nature du contentieux, mais si une décision en appel est pendante à son initiative, il n'est pas illogique de cesser un paiement contesté...
Ces 8M$, s'ils sont effectivement dus, c'est déjà dans les cours depuis belle lurette, et si l'appel est couronné de succès, c'est même très bon...alors que le marché sanctionne une nouvelle "neutre" qui tient plus du non évènement que du scoop, c'est étrange...à moins que ma lecture rapide du cette news disparue me fasse commettre une erreur de perception, ce qui est tout à fait possible, mais pas l'option la plus probable car je lis quand même l'anglais sans difficulté majeure...

Bref, le plus étonnant c'est que la news que je m'apprêtais à poster ait disparu pile poil au moment ou je réinitialisais mon PC après plantage.

tenez, elle reprend déjà 2% en ne chutant plus "que" de 9%...

la production d'or au Q4 2012 est vue comme négative à Ct, d'où le nouveau repli ==> l'auteur ( qui ne posséde pas d'actions AUMN) suggére de profiter de ce pull back



Citation :
After a rough 2012, these shares have been trending higher in the first weeks of 2013, but there was a recent pullback after the company announced fourth quarter production. Production for the fourth quarter 2012 totaled a record of approximately 134,000 ounces of silver, an increase of about 13% over third quarter 2012 production and 72% greater than the fourth quarter 2011. However, gold production during the fourth quarter 2012 was about 1,300 ounces, which is about 33% less than the third quarter 2012 production and an increase of about 8% above the fourth quarter 2011. The gold production in Q4 is seen as a short-term negative which was due to various factors including a shortage of miners. However, the company is focused on increasing gold production in 2013. That is why this could be just a short-term opportunity to buy the shares in a pullback, before the recent uptrend resumes.

par marie Mer 13 Fév 2013 - 16:45

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/golden-minerals-announces-2013-operating-035500143.html

GOLDEN, Colo., Feb. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - Golden Minerals Company (NYSE
MKT: AUMN; TSX: AUM) ("Golden Minerals" or "the Company") today provided
a summary of its 2013 operating plan, projecting increased production
in 2013 and positive gross margin at the Velardena Operations commencing
in the third quarter, and of its program to define longer term
operating and expansion plans for Velardena. The Company also announced
its intent to solicit a partner to advance its El Quevar property in
Salta, Argentina and to reduce El Quevar holding costs.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120803/LA52082LOGO)

PRODUCTION

Velardena 2012 payable production totaled approximately 780,000
payable silver equivalent (AgEq) ounces, or an average 195,000 AgEq
ounces per quarter. Payable silver equivalent ounces include only
payable gold (at a 50:1 ratio to silver) plus payable silver and exclude
lead and zinc. Velardena's average quarterly production in 2012 is
about 60 percent greater than the 122,000 AgEq ounces of sold production
reported for the second quarter 2011, the final reporting period prior
to Golden's acquisition of the property in September 2011 .

The Company anticipates 2013 payable production of about one million
AgEq ounces, almost 30 percent greater than 2012 payable production. The
Company also expects to produce approximately 4 million pounds of
combined payable lead and zinc in 2013. The Company expects a
substantial 80 percent increase in payable silver in 2013, combined with
an approximate 30 percent decrease in gold production. Forecasted
improvement in silver output is a result of increased grade due
primarily to improved longitudinal vein dilution control and to improved
recoveries resulting from the late 2012 addition of a flotation circuit
ahead of the leach circuit in the oxide plant. The flotation circuit is
currently operating and producing a lead concentrate averaging between
15 to 20 kilograms (480 to 640 ounces) of silver per tonne. The
forecasted decrease in gold production is primarily the result of
reduced gold recoveries in the current plant configuration from material
mined from new areas which appears to have a different gold metallurgy
than material previously mined. The Company has initiated a testing
program to address gold recovery, discussed further under Mine
Development and Operations below.

The Company anticipates a steady ramp-up in silver equivalent
production during 2013, and preliminary results from January 2013
operations are consistent with these expectations.

MINE DEVELOPMENT AND OPERATIONS

The Company will continue to advance the San Mateo ramp during 2013,
with completion of the ramp now expected during the third quarter 2013,
moved forward from the previously communicated fourth quarter 2013
estimate. Approximately 1.5 kilometers of the ramp have been completed,
with less than 0.5 kilometers remaining to reach the productive Santa
Juana mining unit. Completion of the ramp will permit ore removal by
30-ton trucks, rather than by the existing interior hoisting system that
is capped at 300 tonnes per day, and should permit the Company to
increase output as the mine develops. The ramp has already provided
access to the Terneras and San Mateo veins and when completed will
provide more efficient and less costly ore haulage from the Santa Juana
veins.

A significant portion of the gold in Velardena ores occurs
encapsulated in pyrite mineralization which requires oxidation of the
pyrites to permit increased gold recovery. Testing continues on an
Albion oxidation process and on an autoclave process to improve gold
recoveries. Initial test work for the Albion process is encouraging, and
the Company believes that installation of an Albion oxidation circuit
for recovery of the gold bearing pyrites would require significantly
less capital than would an autoclave. Additional testing is required to
confirm the potential of the Albion process, and the Company has sent
more sample material to Australia to confirm initial test results and
to permit the development of engineering parameters and a preliminary
construction budget.

The Company has also shipped a 300 kilogram sample of tails from the
oxide plant to a U.S. testing facility to evaluate whether the addition
of a Knelson gravity gold/pyrite recovery circuit could improve gold
recoveries at the oxide plant. This type of circuit may also enhance
gold recovery at the sulfide plant. If the tests are successful, Knelson
concentrators could be installed later in 2013.

The Company anticipates approximately $7.0 million in capital
expenditures at Velardena in 2013, with approximately half of that
amount spent on mine development including the San Mateo ramp. With the
current and advancing development of the San Mateo ramp, the Company is
now able to position diamond drills to penetrate the Santa Juana area
beneath current mining. Drilling is also ongoing in the Chicago mining
unit in an attempt to define oxide tonnes for the oxide plant leaching
circuit. In addition, the Company continues work to optimize mine plans
and plant performance.

The Company believes that the process test work and underground drill
program described above should provide the basis for better planning
and evaluation of expansion options later in the year.

EL QUEVAR

Recent drilling at El Quevar (see the Company's January 25, 2013
press release) supports the Company's view that El Quevar may be an
evolving new silver district. Drilling identified silver mineralization
approximately one kilometer east and on strike with the Yaxtche
resource, and identified a possible extension of the Norte zone, 500
meters east of previous drilling. The Norte zone is parallel in strike
to Yaxtche and is five kilometers to the north. In order to advance El
Quevar, the Company will solicit a partner to move the project forward
with additional drilling in these areas, drilling in other potential
areas and evaluations.

LIQUIDITY

The Company will focus on attaining positive cash flow from the
Velardena Operations, and expects the Velardena Operations to become
gross margin positive in the third quarter 2013, assuming current gold
and silver prices.

The Company's cash position is currently sufficient for the Company
to carry out its 2013 operating plan, with a projected cash balance at
the end of 2013 of approximately $24 million .

About Golden Minerals

Golden Minerals Company is a Delaware corporation based in Golden,
Colorado, primarily engaged in silver and gold mining at its Velardena
Operations in Mexico and advancement of the evaluation stage El Quevar
project in Argentina .

GOLDEN, Colo., March 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Golden Minerals Company (NYSE
MKT: AUMN; TSX: AUM) ("Golden Minerals" or "the Company") announces 2012
year-end results.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120803/LA52082LOGO)

For the period January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012 , Golden
Minerals recorded revenue of $26.1 million and costs of metals sold of
$33.4 million for a negative gross margin of $7.3 million from the
sale of metals at the Velardena Operations in Mexico . For the same
period the Company recorded a total net loss of $92.0 million , which
includes the negative gross margin at the Velardena Operations and
$58.5 million associated with a non-cash goodwill impairment charge,
$57.2 million of which was recorded previously in the third quarter.
The net loss also includes $7.9 million for project expenses and mine
development costs related to the Velardena Operations, $10.0 million
of non-cash depreciation and amortization-related expense, $7.1 million
of corporate general and administrative expense, $7.0 million of
exploration expense and $5.1 million of expense associated with the El
Quevar project. These expenses were partially offset by other
operating income of $2.5 million related primarily to net gains on the
sale of certain fixed assets and non-strategic mineral properties and
interest and other income of $2.5 million related primarily to the
sale of the Platosa net smelter royalty.

The Company's cash and cash equivalents balance totaled $44.4
million at December 31, 2012 compared to $48.6 million at December
31, 2011 . The $4.2 million decrease in cash and cash equivalents
during 2012 resulted primarily from the cash operating expenditures
described above plus $9.6 million in capitalized property and plant
expenditures, incurred primarily at the Velardena Operations, offset by
the Company's receipt of approximately $37.0 million related to a
public offering and private placement of units comprised of common stock
and warrants in September 2012 , plus $5.1 million received in net
proceeds from asset sales.

Golden Minerals Co : Golden Minerals Announces Record First Quarter 2013 Production Of Silver

GOLDEN, Colo., April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Golden Minerals Company (NYSE MKT: AUMN; TSX: AUM) ("Golden Minerals" or "the Company") announces preliminary production results from the Velardena Operations for the first quarter 2013.
(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120803/LA52082LOGO )
Payable production during the first quarter 2013 totaled approximately 215,000 silver equivalent ounces (equivalents calculated at 50:1, gold: silver) and included 150,000 ounces of silver and 1,300 ounces of gold. Total payable production increased 9 percent compared to the fourth quarter 2012. These amounts are in line with the Company's 2013 operating plan.
Payable silver production during the first quarter 2013 reached a record high of approximately 150,000 ounces, 12 percent greater than the fourth quarter 2012. Payable gold production during the first quarter 2013 totaled approximately 1,300 ounces, 2 percent greater than the fourth quarter 2012. Payable production figures include only silver and gold. The Company also produced approximately 320,000 pounds of payable lead and 460,000 pounds of payable zinc during the first quarter 2013, also in line with the Company's 2013 operating plan.
On March 8, 2013, Mexican regulatory authorities suspended the Company's explosives permit for the principal producing areas of the Velardena Operations due to the proximity of the blasting cap magazine to the occupied mine facilities, a situation that had existed for more than a decade. The Company immediately relocated the employees to other mine buildings and regulatory authorities agreed on March 9 that the Company's remediation plan was acceptable, pending the regulatory authority's compliance with its formal procedures to reinstate the permit. The permit was reinstated on April 10, 2013 and the Velardena Operations are currently in the process of rebuilding broken rock inventory. During the permit suspension, the Company used the opportunity to complete additional flow capacity in the oxide leach circuit and add cleaner flotation capacity to the float circuit ahead of the oxide circuit. These projects are anticipated to improve both silver and gold recoveries.
The Company's 2013 operating plan calls for an increase in quarterly production throughout the year. Production in the first quarter was not significantly affected by the explosives permit suspension due to the availability of stockpiled broken ore, but due to the depletion of broken ore in the mine and the duration of the suspension, the Company expects second quarter production to be lower than the first quarter. The Company continues to expect that the San Mateo ramp will be completed during the third quarter 2013, and that production in the third and fourth quarters will exceed first quarter production as broken material inventories are replenished in the mine and additional development work opens new stopes for production. The Company currently expects to produce between 900,000 and one million ounces of payable silver equivalent in 2013 due to the explosive permit suspension.
