Coeur Reports Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2021 Results
Provides Full-Year 2022 Guidance

Chicago, Illinois - February 16, 2022 - Coeur Mining, Inc. (“Coeur” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CDE) today reported fourth quarter 2021 financial results, including revenue of $208 million and cash flow from operating activities of $35 million. The Company reported GAAP net loss from continuing operations of $11 million, or $0.04 per share, which included a non-cash unrealized loss of $8 million on strategic equity investments, primarily related to Coeur’s 18% equity ownership of Victoria Gold Corp. (“Victoria”) during the quarter. On an adjusted basis1, Coeur reported EBITDA of $49 million, cash flow from operating activities before changes in working capital of $38 million and net loss from continuing operations of $12 million, or $0.05 per share.
For the full year, Coeur reported revenue of $833 million, cash flow from operating activities of $110 million and GAAP net loss from continuing operations of $31 million, or $0.13 per share. On an adjusted basis1, the Company reported EBITDA of $211 million, cash flow from operating activities prior to changes in working capital of $146 million and net loss from continuing operations of $1 million, or $0.01 per share
Key Highlights
Solid fourth quarter production growth led to full-year production within guidance ranges – Gold and silver production increased 2% and 6% quarter-over-quarter, respectively, to 88,946 ounces and 2.6 million ounces. Full-year gold and silver production totaled 348,529 ounces and 10.1 million ounces, respectively, within the Company’s consolidated production guidance range for both metals
Strong cost performance from primary gold operations – Full-year adjusted costs applicable to sales2 at Palmarejo, Kensington and Wharf were within their guidance ranges for 2021 despite inflationary cost headwinds, leading to strong free cash flow1 at each of these primary gold operations. During 2021, gold sales represented 70% of the Company’s total revenue
Largest exploration program in Company history extended mine lives and drove resource growth – Coeur increased total exploration investment 41% year-over-year to $71 million in 2021, bringing its five-year cumulative investment in exploration to nearly $240 million, which has led to significant increases in reserves and resources. From the 2021 program, mine life extensions at Palmarejo and Wharf as well as significant resource additions at Silvertip and Kensington continue to lay the foundation for future organic growth
Updated capital and schedule estimates for Rochester expansion provide clarity – The Company estimates the total capital for the Plan of Operations Amendment 11 (“POA 11”) will be approximately $520 million, which is in-line with recent updates. Approximately $236 million has been incurred on the project as of December 31, 2021. In addition, Coeur estimates the cost to incorporate pre-screens into the new crusher circuit and associated re-assessment of project contingency to be approximately $70 - $80 million. Construction is expected to be completed mid-2023 with commissioning to follow. Post-expansion, full-year production is expected to average roughly 8 million ounces of silver and 76,250 ounces of gold with average free cash flow1 of $90 million from 2024 to 2034

Silvertip trade-off study underway – The Company commenced work to assess the economics of a potential larger expansion and restart of its high-grade Silvertip silver-zinc-lead property in British Columbia. The review is evaluating the potential to target a higher throughput to take advantage of the significant resource growth and on a timetable that would sequence an expansion and restart following completion and commissioning of the Rochester expansion. Results from this ongoing work are expected by the end of the year
Initial Technical Report Summaries filed under new SEC rules confirm strength and stability of Coeur’s multi-asset portfolio The Company today filed initial Technical Report Summaries pursuant to Item 1300 of SEC Regulation S-K. Highlights from the reports include reserve-only based mine lives of 8 years at Palmarejo, 13 years at Rochester, 3 years at Kensington and 8 years at Wharf

“Solid contributions from our diversified portfolio led to Coeur’s strongest annual revenue in nearly a decade,” said Mitchell J. Krebs, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Achieving our annual production guidance for both gold and silver was particularly gratifying in light of the global economic disruptions that continue to impact our industry.
“Through it all, our focus remained squarely on advancing the POA 11 expansion project at Rochester in northern Nevada. Comprehensive development and planning work during the fourth quarter has provided significant clarity on costs and timing. We believe the decision to proceed with pre-screens as an expected accretive scope change to the existing project flowsheet will contribute further to Rochester’s overall flexibility. The updated Rochester capital schedule envisions a long-lived linchpin of sustainable production and free cash flow with compelling opportunities for further organic growth.
“We also continued our successful multi-year exploration program by executing the largest drilling campaign in Coeur’s history. Our commitment to delivering organic growth through the drill bit led to further extension of mine lives at Wharf and Palmarejo as well as enhanced understanding of geologic models in all our operating districts. We also made important new discoveries at our Silvertip property in northern British Columbia and Crown property in southern Nevada.
“We have taken advantage of the higher metal prices in recent years to invest in the attractive returns available from brownfield expansions and exploration to position the Company as America’s premier, growing precious metals mining company with a diversified, North American asset base capable of generating attractive returns and sustainable cash flow over the long-term.”

Financial Results
Fourth quarter 2021 revenue totaled $208 million compared to $208 million in the prior period and $228 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. The Company produced 88,946 and 2.6 million ounces of gold and silver, respectively, during the quarter. Metal sales totaled 88,930 ounces of gold and 2.6 million ounces of silver. Average realized gold and silver prices for the quarter were $1,652 and $23.17 per ounce, respectively, compared to $1,645 and $24.18 per ounce in the prior period and $1,663 and $24.21 per ounce in the fourth quarter of 2020.
Coeur generated $833 million in revenue during 2021, representing a 6% increase year-over-year and its highest annual revenue in nearly ten years. Full-year gold and silver production totaled 348,529 and 10.1 million ounces, respectively, compared to 355,678 ounces of gold and 9.7 million ounces of silver in 2020. Metal sales in 2021 included 350,347 and 10.1 million ounces of gold and silver, respectively. Average realized gold and silver prices for the year were $1,652 and $25.06 per ounce, respectively, compared to $1,641 and $20.79 per ounce in 2020.
Gold and silver sales accounted for 71% and 29% of quarterly revenue, respectively. For the full year, gold and silver sales accounted for 70% and 30% of revenue. The Company’s U.S. operations accounted for approximately 61% and 62% of fourth quarter and full-year revenue, respectively.

Costs applicable to sales2 remained consistent quarter-over-quarter at $137 million while increasing 16% year-over-year to $512 million. Higher costs during the year were due primarily to increased maintenance and consumable costs driven by inflation.
General and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter and full-year totaled $10 million and $40 million, respectively, compared to $9 million and $34 million in the prior periods, and at the low end of Coeur’s 2021 guidance range of $40 - $45 million. Higher general and administrative expense in the fourth quarter and full-year primarily reflects increased employee-related expenses.
Coeur invested approximately $18 million ($14 million expensed and $4 million capitalized) in exploration during the quarter, compared to roughly $20 million ($15 million expensed and $5 million capitalized) in the prior period. For the full year, the Company invested approximately $71 million ($51 million expensed and $20 million capitalized), compared to roughly $51 million ($43 million expensed and $8 million capitalized), reflecting completion of the largest exploration program in Coeur’s history and within the Company’s 2021 guidance range of $65 - $75 million. See the “Operations” and “Exploration” sections for additional detail on the Company’s exploration activities.
Operating costs related to COVID-19 mitigation and response efforts remained relatively steady quarter-over-quarter at $1 million, bringing the full-year expense to approximately $7 million. These costs were primarily driven by employee-related expenses at Kensington and Palmarejo, and are included in “Pre-development, reclamation, and other expenses” on the Company’s income statement. Coeur has maintained rigorous health and safety protocols across its operations aimed at limiting the exposure and transmission of COVID-19 which has led to minimal business interruptions.
The Company recorded income tax expense of approximately $1 million and $35 million during the fourth quarter and for the full year, respectively. Cash income and mining taxes paid during the period totaled approximately $10 million, bringing the full-year figure to $57 million. Cash taxes paid in 2021 primarily reflect income and mining tax payments in Mexico. Additionally, Coeur expects to pay approximately $20 - $25 million in cash taxes during the first quarter of 2022 primarily as a result of its annual tax filings in Mexico.
Quarterly operating cash flow totaled $35 million compared to $22 million in the prior period, largely driven by favorable changes in working capital resulting primarily from the timing of payments. The Company satisfied the remaining $8 million obligation under its prepayment agreement at Kensington and exercised an option to receive an additional $15 million prepayment, resulting in a net cash inflow of approximately $7 million in the fourth quarter. For the full year, operating cash flow decreased 26% to $110 million largely driven by lower profitability at Rochester, Kensington and Wharf.
Capital expenditures increased 42% quarter-over-quarter to $101 million, bringing the full-year total to $310 million and within Coeur’s 2021 guidance range of $280 - $310 million. Higher quarterly capital expenditures were driven by increased investment across the Company’s portfolio. Expenditures related to the POA 11 expansion project at Rochester totaled $47 million and $148 million during the quarter and full-year, respectively. Sustaining and development capital expenditures accounted for approximately 32% and 68%, respectively, of Coeur’s total capital investment in 2021.

Capital Projects Update
Rochester Expansion
As previously disclosed, the Company began seeing inflationary pressures on bids for remaining unawarded contracts on the POA 11 expansion project at Rochester during the second half of 2021, most

notably on two structural, mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation (“SMPEI”) construction contracts for the Merrill-Crowe process plant and crushing circuit, respectively. Coeur recently selected TIC - The Industrial Company, a subsidiary of Kiewit, as the general SMPEI contractor for construction of the Merrill-Crowe process plant and crusher corridor based on a revised commercial approach from the previous lump-sum commercial model to a single contract. SMPEI work under the initial contract is beginning to advance.
Coeur has also advanced work related to implementation of pre-screens as part of the POA 11 expansion project and has elected to proceed with this scope change enhancement. As previously disclosed, the Company plans to integrate pre-screens into the current crushing system at Rochester, which is expected to drive improved performance while providing valuable operating experience and knowledge that can be applied to the new crushing circuit as part of the POA 11 expansion. Coeur has commenced detailed engineering for pre-screens and intends to align construction of the pre-screens with the completion of the crusher corridor. Installation of pre-screens on the existing crusher system is scheduled for the first half of 2022 with commissioning expected to begin around mid-year.
In connection with the items discussed above, the Company has conducted a comprehensive re-baselining of the overall schedule and costs associated with the original scope of POA 11. Updates to key elements of the project timeline including commissioning are highlighted below:

Crushing Circuit
1H 2021 P
YE 20223Q-2023

Coeur now estimates the total construction capital for POA 11 to be approximately $597 million, which includes the 10-15% previously announced potential cost escalation as well as $70 - $80 million related to pre-screen implementation and additional project contingency to reflect ongoing COVID and schedule risk. As of December 31, 2021, the Company has incurred approximately $236 million in the expansion and 61% of the capital is now committed (excluding the recently-awarded SMPEI contract, which is expected to be formalized in the first quarter).
Excluding capital leases, Coeur forecasts capital expenditures related to POA 11 to be approximately $217 - $257 million and $131 - $171 million in 2022 and 2023, respectively. Additional details on expected production and capital expenditures for Rochester can be found in the Technical Report Summary filed by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on February 16, 2022 and summarized below.

Silvertip Expansion and Restart
As previously disclosed, the Company received preliminary capital estimates for an accelerated expansion and restart which were higher than originally anticipated and reflected overall inflationary pressures as well as supply disruptions and labor market tightness consistent with broader macroeconomic themes.
Coeur continues to generate positive results from ongoing exploration as highlighted by the 62% year-over-year increase in inferred resource tons. The Company continues to evaluate various opportunities to enhance the economics of a potential expansion and restart of Silvertip. Exploration investment in the fourth quarter and full-year totaled approximately $4 million (substantially all expensed) and $19 million ($15 million expensed and $3 million capitalized), respectively.
Up to seven core drill rigs were active during the quarter (five on surface and two underground) focused on expansion drilling at southern portions and deeper extensions of the Southern Silver, Discovery South and Camp Creek zones. A total of approximately 337,000 feet (102,725 meters) were drilled during the year, including roughly 75,100 feet (22,875 meters) drilled during the fourth quarter.
Recent surface drilling from south of the Southern Silver zone has cut 11 horizontal manto-style massive sulfide horizons with greater than 10% sphalerite, further suggesting the mineral system extends to the south. Similarly, surface drilling at the Camp Creek zone discovered a new chimney-style massive sulfide zone west of the Camp Creek fault, an area that remains completely open to expansion. At the end of 2021, all of the extensions from Discovery South, Southern Silver and Camp Creek ore bodies remain completely open for expansion. In 2022, Coeur plans to continue the resource growth program and follow-up drilling activity on the newly discovered zones. Additionally, ongoing metallurgical test work is continuing to validate the Company’s assumptions on potential recovery rates and concentrate qualities.

Ongoing carrying costs at Silvertip totaled $6 million in the fourth quarter, compared to $6 million in the prior period. For the full year, ongoing carrying costs totaled $25 million. Capital expenditures during the fourth quarter totaled $26 million compared to $15 million in the prior period as Coeur completed mill decommissioning and planned early civil works construction during the quarter. For 2022, capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $18 - $24 million, primarily focused on underground development and infill drilling as well as study work to evaluate additional opportunities to enhance the economics of a potential expansion and restart.

Liquidity Update
The Company ended the year with total liquidity of approximately $257 million, including $57 million of cash and $200 million of available capacity under its $300 million revolving credit facility (“RCF”)5. The aggregate borrowing capacity under the RCF may be increased by up to $100 million. Additionally, the Company had $132 million of strategic investments in equity securities and the full $100 million available under its at-the-market common stock offering program established in April 2020 (“ATM Program”).

Hedging Update
The Company did not execute any additional hedges during the fourth quarter. Coeur continues to proactively monitor market conditions to potentially layer in additional hedges on up to 70% of expected gold production in 2022 to provide greater assurance of expected cash flow during this period of elevated capital expenditures. The Company’s silver price exposure remains unhedged. An overview of the hedges currently implemented is outlined below:
2022
Gold Ounces Hedged132,000
Avg. Ceiling ($/oz)$2,038
Avg. Floor ($/oz)$1,630

Mark-to-Market Adjustments
The Company values its strategic investments in equity securities as of the end of each reporting period. The estimated fair values of the Company’s equity investments in Victoria Gold Corp. and Integra Resources Corp. were $124 million and $8 million, respectively, at December 31, 2021 compared to $131 million and $9 million, respectively, at September 30, 2021, resulting in a non-cash unrealized loss of $8 million during the fourth quarter of 2021. This figure is included in “Fair value adjustments, net” on the Company’s income statement.

Rochester LCM Adjustment
Coeur reports the carrying value of metal and leach pad inventory at the lower of cost or net realizable value, with cost being determined using a weighted average cost method. At the end of the fourth quarter, the cost of ore on leach pads at Rochester exceeded its net realizable value which resulted in a lower of cost or market (“LCM”) adjustment of $8 million (approximately $7 million in costs applicable to sales2 and $1 million of amortization).

Fourth quarter gold and silver production totaled 28,748 and 1.8 million ounces, respectively, compared to 24,254 and 1.7 million ounces in the prior period and 34,511 and 1.8 million ounces in the fourth quarter of 2020. For the full year, gold and silver production totaled 109,202 and 6.8 million ounces, respectively, and were within 2021 guidance ranges of 100,000 - 110,000 ounces of gold and 6.5 - 7.8 million ounces of silver
Production during the quarter benefited from a 14% increase in mill throughput as well as higher average gold grade, partially offset by lower gold and silver recoveries due to an increase of in-circuit inventory
Financial
Fourth quarter adjusted CAS1 for gold and silver on a co-product basis decreased 7% and 10% to $653 and $11.25 per ounce, respectively, reflecting higher metal sales partially offset by higher cement consumption related to ongoing rehabilitation efforts
For the full year, adjusted CAS1 for gold and silver totaled $663 and $11.95 per ounce, respectively, compared to $609 and $9.13 in the prior period. Both cost metrics finished the year within their 2021 guidance ranges of $635 - $735 and $11.75 - 12.75 per ounce of gold and silver, respectively, and benefited from Mexican Peso hedges
Capital expenditures remained relatively consistent quarter-over-quarter at $8 million, reflecting continued investment in business improvement projects, underground development and infill drilling.
8


Full-year capital expenditures increased 43% to $37 million, primarily as a result of increased underground development and business improvement projects
Free cash flow1 in the fourth quarter totaled $25 million compared to $15 million in the prior period, largely driven by higher metal sales
Exploration
Exploration investment decreased 17% quarter-over-quarter to approximately $4 million ($2 million expensed and $1 million capitalized), while full-year exploration investment increased 31% year-over-year to roughly $14 million ($9 million expensed and $6 million capitalized)
Up to seven surface and underground core drill rigs were active during the quarter. A total of approximately 49,500 feet (15,075 meters) were drilled during the period, including 23,800 feet (7,250 meters) of expansion and 25,700 feet (7,825 meters) of infill drilling. For the full year, a total of approximately 243,500 feet (74,200 meters) were drilled, including 104,200 feet (31,750 meters) of expansion and 139,300 feet (42,450 meters) of infill drilling
Infill drilling focused on specific zones within the Independencia and Guadalupe deposits while surface rigs targeted areas of the northwest Independencia, Hidalgo (located within the Independencia deposit) and La Patria (located within the Guadalupe deposit) zones
Expansion drilling during the quarter continued to focus on the Hidalgo and El Ojito (located in the northeastern portion of the Independencia deposit) zones
Coeur began greenfield drilling in the La Carmela (located within the Guazapares district and outside the gold stream area of influence) zone after receiving surface agreements and environmental permits early in the quarter
Coeur plans for six drill rigs to be active at Palmarejo in the first quarter of 2022, focusing on infill drilling in northwest Independencia and Hidalgo zones, and expects to maintain this pace throughout the year
Other
Approximately 43% of Palmarejo’s gold sales in the fourth quarter and full-year were sold under its gold stream agreement at a price of $800 per ounce, totaling 11,970 ounces in the fourth quarter and 46,506 ounces for the full year. The Company anticipates approximately 38% - 42% of Palmarejo’s gold sales for 2022 will be sold under the stream agreement
Guidance
Full-year 2022 production is expected to be 100,000 - 110,000 ounces of gold and 6.0 - 7.0 million ounces of silver. Lower expected production in 2022 is primarily due to lower planned mining and throughput rates
CAS1 in 2022 are expected to be $750 - $850 per gold ounce and $13.50 - $14.50 per silver ounce. Higher CAS1 in 2022 is a result of Coeur completing its Mexican Peso hedging program in 2021 and anticipated continued inflationary pressures
Capital expenditures are expected to be $50 - $55 million, primarily aimed at underground development as well as development of an open pit backfill tailings storage facility

Silver and gold production in the fourth quarter totaled 0.8 million and 6,864 ounces, respectively, compared to 0.7 million and 6,051 ounces in the prior period and 1.0 million and 9,590 ounces in the fourth quarter of 2020. For the full year, silver and gold production totaled 3.2 million and 27,051 ounces, respectively and were within 2021 guidance ranges of 3.2 - 4.4 million ounces of silver and 22,500 - 32,500 ounces of gold
Tons placed increased 12% quarter-over-quarter to 3.8 million, largely due to improved haul truck availability as well as crusher throughput. Tonnage placed was impacted by a historic rain event in October which affected approximately 10 days of production. Placement rates were supplemented by stacking roughly 1.0 million tons of run-of-mine material during the quarter
The Company plans to install pre-screens on the existing crusher corridor aimed at mitigating the impact of fine ore material and improving recoveries. The total cost of the pre-screens is anticipated to be approximately $5 million, with commissioning expected to begin around mid-year. During construction, the project is expected to affect the Company’s ability to crush material for up to 30 days during the second quarter. The experience and knowledge gained from utilizing pre-screens will be applied to new screening technology being integrated into the new crusher system flowsheet for POA 11
Financial
Fourth quarter and full-year as well as third quarter adjusted CAS1 exclude the impact of an LCM adjustment totaling approximately $7 million and $5 million, respectively, related to the net realizable value of metal and leach pad inventory. Additionally, full-year adjusted CAS1 figures include a non-cash inventory charge of approximately $9 million made in the second quarter related to a change in Coeur’s recovery rate assumption on the Stage IV leach pad
10


Fourth quarter adjusted CAS1 for silver and gold on a co-product basis totaled $21.76 and $1,707 per ounce, respectively, compared to $22.68 and $1,665 per ounce in the prior period, largely driven by increased maintenance and consumable costs, partially offset by higher metal sales
Full-year adjusted CAS1 for silver and gold on a co-product basis totaled $23.57 and $1,691 per ounce, respectively, compared to $16.27 and $1,370 per ounce in the prior period. Higher unit costs in 2021 reflect the non-cash inventory charge discussed above as well as increased maintenance and consumable costs. Excluding the non-cash charge, full-year adjusted CAS1 for silver and gold on a co-product basis totaled $21.92 and $1,572 per ounce, respectively
Capital expenditures increased 34% quarter-over-quarter to $54 million, bringing the full-year total to $167 million compared to $38 million in the prior year, reflecting continued investment in the POA 11 expansion project as well as several sustaining projects commenced during the period
Free cash flow1 in the fourth quarter and full-year totaled $(66) million and $(193) million, respectively, compared to $(50) million and $(46) million in the prior periods
Exploration
Quarterly exploration investment decreased 20% quarter-over-quarter to approximately $3 million ($2 million expensed and $1 million capitalized), while full-year exploration investment increased 76% year-over-year to approximately $9 million ($6 million expensed and $3 million capitalized)
Two reverse circulation drill rigs and two core drill rigs were active during the quarter. Infill drilling focused within the Rochester pit while expansion drilling tested Nevada Packard, North and East Rochester, Lincoln Hill and Gold Ridge. A total of approximately 32,800 feet (10,000 meters) were drilled during the period, including 30,000 feet (9,150 meters) focused on expansion and 2,800 feet (850 meters) focused on infill drilling. For the full year, a total of approximately 112,200 feet (34,200 meters) were drilled, including 81,200 feet (24,750 meters) of expansion and 31,000 feet (9,450 meters) of infill drilling
Coeur completed its aggressive district-wide greenfield, gold-focused exploration program during the fourth quarter, which led to identifying several new expansion targets at Gold Ridge, Nevada Packard and Northeast Rochester. The Company plans to have up to two reverse circulation drill rigs active at Rochester during 2022 to focus on greenfield and resource expansion targets in these areas. Approval of an updated Plan of Operations for West Rochester (composed of Lincoln Hill, Independence Hill and Gold Ridge) is expected by the end of March which will allow the Company to accelerate the exploration program in this area
Guidance
Full-year 2022 production is expected to be 3.0 - 4.0 million ounces of silver and 35,000 - 43,000 ounces of gold. Higher expected production in 2022 is a result of increased average gold and silver grades, partially offset by fewer planned crushed tons in the second quarter related to the installation of pre-screens on the existing crusher
CAS1 in 2022 are expected to be $20.75 - $22.75 per silver ounce and $1,490 - $1,590 per gold ounce
Capital expenditures are expected to be $220 - $260 million primarily due to investment in the POA 11 expansion project

Gold production in the fourth quarter totaled 33,516 ounces compared to 28,621 ounces in the prior period and 32,990 ounces in the fourth quarter of 2020. For the full year, gold production totaled 121,140 ounces and was within 2021 guidance of 115,000 - 130,000 ounces
Strong production during the quarter was driven by an 11% improvement in average gold grade and higher mill throughput quarter-over-quarter
The higher-grade Jualin deposit accounted for approximately 19% of Kensington’s fourth quarter production, higher than roughly 13% in the prior period, largely due to mine sequencing. For the full year, Jualin accounted for approximately 18% of Kensington’s total production
Financial
Fourth quarter adjusted CAS1 totaled $1,111 per ounce compared to $1,150 per ounce in the prior period reflecting higher metal sales, partially offset by higher consumable costs and employee-related expenses. Full-year adjusted CAS1 increased 11% to $1,082 per ounce but remained within the 2021 guidance range of $1,010 - $1,110 per ounce
Capital expenditures increased 27% quarter-over-quarter to $8 million, largely due to increased investment in underground development. For the full year, capital expenditures increased 39% to $28 million primarily due to higher underground development investment and additional infill drilling
Free cash flow1 in the fourth quarter and full-year totaled $19 million and $43 million, respectively, compared to $7 million and $60 million in the prior periods. Fourth quarter free cash flow1 benefited from increased metal sales and a favorable impact associated with the prepayment agreement, while full-year results were driven by lower metal sales

Exploration
Exploration investment in the quarter totaled approximately $3 million ($2 million expensed and $1 million capitalized), compared to $4 million ($3 million expensed and $1 million capitalized) in the prior period. For the full year, exploration investment increased 4% to roughly $11 million ($7 million expensed and $4 million capitalized)
Three underground and one surface core drill rigs were active during the quarter. A total of approximately 36,300 feet (11,050 meters) were drilled during the period, including 19,800 feet (6,025 meters) of expansion and 16,500 feet (5,025 meters) of infill drilling. For the full year, a total of roughly 156,500 feet (47,725 meters) were drilled, including 86,800 feet (26,475 meters) of expansion and 69,700 feet (21,250 meters) of infill drilling
Three underground rigs focused on infill drilling at Elmira and upper Kensington Zone 30 as well as expansion drilling at upper Kensington Zone 30 and Raven. Additionally, one surface core rig completed scout drilling late in the period at the Valentine-Fremming target (southwest of Kensington)
In the first quarter of 2022, three underground drill rigs are expected to focus on infill drilling at the Elmira, upper Kensington Zone 30 and Eureka veins as well as expansion drilling at the Jennifer vein
Guidance
Full-year 2022 production is expected to be 110,000 - 120,000 ounces of gold. Lower anticipated production in 2022 is primarily the result of lower expected grade feed compared to 2021
CAS1 in 2022 are expected to be $1,150 - $1,250 per gold ounce. Higher expected CAS1 in 2022 is primarily due to expected continued inflationary pressures
Capital expenditures are expected to be $27 - $34 million focused on underground development and equipment replacements

Gold production in the fourth quarter totaled 19,818 ounces compared to 28,157 ounces in the prior period and 19,286 ounces in the fourth quarter of 2020. For the full year, gold production totaled 91,136 ounces, within 2021 guidance of 85,000 - 95,000 ounces
Lower production during the quarter was due primarily to lower grade material placed on the leach pad during the prior period as a result of planned mine sequencing
Financial
Adjusted CAS1 on a by-product basis increased 14% quarter-over-quarter to $1,104 per ounce, largely driven by lower metal sales. Full-year adjusted CAS1 totaled $994 per ounce and was within 2021 guidance of $960 - $1,060 per ounce
Capital expenditures in the fourth quarter totaled $4 million compared to $1 million in the prior period, primarily related to new equipment purchases as well as increased investment in infill drilling. Full-year capital expenditures totaled $8 million compared to $2 million in 2020, primarily reflecting increased investment in infill drilling during the year
Free cash flow1 was $4 million and $50 million in the fourth quarter and full-year, respectively, compared to $24 million and $73 million in the prior periods. Lower free cash flow1 in the fourth quarter and full-year was largely driven by lower metal sales
Exploration
Exploration investment in the quarter and year totaled approximately $1 million (substantially all capitalized) and approximately $4 million (substantially all capitalized) as the Company made its largest exploration investment since acquiring the asset in 2015
A total of approximately 21,700 feet (6,625 meters) were drilled during the period using one reverse circulation rig focusing on infill targets at the Portland Ridge – Boston claim group (located on the southern edge of the operation), Flossie (located west of Portland Ridge) and Juno (located north of the Portland pit) areas. For the full year, a total of roughly 123,400 feet (37,625 meters) were drilled
The Company plans to have one reverse circulation rig during the first quarter of 2022 focused on infill drilling at the Flossie and Portland Ridge areas
Guidance
Full-year 2022 production is expected to be 70,000 - 80,000 ounces. Lower anticipated production in 2022 is primarily related to lower expected gold grade due to mine sequencing
CAS1 in 2022 are expected to be $1,225 - $1,325 per gold ounce. Higher expected CAS1 in 2022 is due to lower expected metal sales as well as continued inflationary pressures
Capital expenditures are expected to be $2 - $5 million

Exploration
The fourth quarter marked the end of a record-breaking exploration year for Coeur, wrapping up an industry-leading exploration program. During the fourth quarter, Coeur drilled roughly 251,300 feet (76,600 meters) for a total investment of approximately $18 million ($14 million expensed and $4 million capitalized), compared to roughly 326,700 feet (99,575 meters) for a total investment of approximately $20 million ($15 million expensed and $5 million capitalized) in the prior period. The decrease in drilling activity was largely driven by the seasonal wind-down of exploration activities across the Company’s portfolio toward the end of the year.
For the full year, Coeur drilled roughly 1,164,100 feet (354,825 meters) at a total investment of approximately $71 million ($51 million expensed and $20 million capitalized), compared to roughly 783,200 feet (238,725 meters) at a total investment of approximately $51 million ($43 million expensed and $8 million capitalized) in 2020. Total feet drilled was 49% higher year-over-year, representing a new annual record for the Company.
As a result, measured and indicated resources grew across several sites, specifically at Silvertip, as silver, zinc and lead increased roughly 51%, 33% and 44%, respectively. The Company also saw promising resource growth at Palmarejo with an approximate 71% increase in gold and a roughly 44% increase in silver as well as an increase of roughly 18% in gold at Kensington.
Three reverse circulation drill rigs were active at the Crown exploration property in southern Nevada during the quarter, primarily focused on the Daisy, Secret Pass and SNA deposits, while one core rig focused on exploration drilling at C-Horst. The Company drilled approximately 36,100 feet (11,000 meters) and 191,400 feet (58,325 meters) during the quarter and full-year, respectively, compared to approximately 50,300 feet (15,325 meters) and 124,000 feet (37,800 meters) in the prior periods. Results were encouraging at Daisy, SNA and C-Horst where Coeur believes resource expansion is expected based on step-out drilling at all three sites.
The Company plans to continue the same pace of exploration at Crown during the first quarter of 2022, with one reverse circulation rig scheduled to conduct resource expansion and scout drilling on new targets within its 300-acre disturbance permit and two core rigs focused on infill drilling at C-Horst and SNA for metallurgy purposes.
Additionally, an amended permit to expand the C-Horst discovery footprint is expected to be received by the end of the second quarter of 2022. Coeur has experienced significant delays from the local federal agencies overseeing the permit process. Despite these delays, once received, the Company plans to begin testing multiple targets at the Pipeline Gulch and Tates Wash areas (both located between C-Horst and SNA) where surface geology, geochemistry and geophysics all indicate gold mineralization could exist similar to C-Horst.
