The scheduled three year Expansion Plan to transition from an open pit heap
leach operation to a conventional mill and underground mine is nearing
completion. The US$99 million program including drilling, Pre-Feasibility
Study, detailed engineering, new processing plant, and underground
development is on budget (+/-5%) and has experienced only modest delays from
the original schedule. Construction involved approximately 450 workers at its
peak with a total of more than 1.5 million man-hours worked.

N. Eric Fier, President and COO stated; "The mill start-up is a significant
milestone in the successful development of
Santa Elena and the responsible growth created by the "phased approach"
business plan of the Company. This major achievement is a testament to the
hard-working teams at Santa Elena and SilverCrest as we continue to make the
transition from a junior to a mid-tier precious metal producer. The new
processing facility and underground mine will significantly increase our
silver and gold production in 2014 and beyond
."

The commissioning phase for the processing facility, which is expected to span
approximately three months, will gradually increase throughput parameters
from approximately 500 tonnes per day until the design capacity of 3,000
tonnes per day is reached. The commissioning phase is planned to test all
aspects of the facility and remediate any issues that may arise.

Mill feed during the commissioning period will initially come from the leach
pad reserve with blending of higher grade underground ore to start in late Q2
2014. Underground development ore is being progressively stockpiled, with
approximately 4.7 thousand tonnes grading 1.3 grams per tonne gold and 81
grams per tonne silver on hand, in anticipation of processing during the
commissioning period.

During the three month commissioning phase, metal production from the heap
leach operation will continue at a reduced rate.

Exploration programs continue to make new discoveries at Santa Elena and have
rapidly advanced the definition of a large polymetallic deposit at the La
Joya property in Durango State, Mexico.
