Pan American Silver Replaces Proven and Probable Silver Reserves Mined During 2008 - "In 2008, Pan American carried out extensive exploration programs, both on its properties as well as on selected greenfield exploration projects in Peru and Mexico. In total, the Company drilled nearly 100,000 meters, resulting in the discovery and definition of 26.9 million ounces of new silver reserves, which more than replaced the 22.2 million ounces of silver consumed by mining operations in 2008. However lower base metal price assumptions coupled with higher cut off grades downgraded 8.8 million ounces from reserves to resources, and as a result, at December 31, 2008 the Company had 223.7 million ounces of silver in proven and probable reserves, down a modest 1.8% from a year ago."

In response to recent news articles indicating that the Company had "lost" the lease and the owner of the Mine, Sunshine Precious Metals (SPMI) intended to repossess the property, the Company desires to clarify the present situation. SPMI has in the past and continues to claim that material defaults have occurred in several provisions of the mining lease. These allegations have been responded to in a timely manner and the Company does not believe that any of the defaults are material or non-curable, although these issues will ultimately likely be determined through the judicial process. The Company is maintaining a small crew at the mine on a 24-hour basis for security and basic maintenance." More
