VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 30, 2012) - Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. (the "Company") (News - Market indicators) reported today the financial results for the year ended December 31, 2011.

2011 was a year of continued growth and change for Sabina. Highlights of the year include:

  • The Company raised $98.9 million in financings during the year.
  • The Hackett River silver-zinc project was sold to Xstrata Zinc Canada ("Xstrata") for $50 million in cash and a significant retained silver royalty. Under the agreement Sabina retains 22.5% of the first 190 million ounces of silver produced from Hackett River and 12.5% of all the silver produced thereafter.
  • The Company announced three updates to its gold resource estimate at the Back River Project, increasing the resource by approximately 2 million ounces year over year. The current resource is comprised of 22 million tonnes grading 5.62 g/t Au for 4 million gold ounces of indicated resource and an additional 10 million tonnes grading 6.23 g/t Au for 2 million gold ounces of inferred resources.
  • As a result of the exploration success at Back River, the Company embarked on a Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") on the project late in 2011. The PEA is being completed by SRK Engineering Ltd., and is expected to be announced in April.
  • During 2011, Rob Pease was appointed President & CEO of the Company replacing Tony Walsh upon his retirement. Mr. Walsh remains on the Board. In addition, to support the Company's evolution into development at Back River, Leon Coetzer, VP, Engineering and Project Development as well as Matt Pickard, Director, Environment and Community Affairs joined the management team.
  • The Company finished the year with approximately $160 million in cash and no debt.
  • Subsequent to Year End, Jason Hynes, VP, Corporate Development also joined the Company.

"We are very much looking forward to what 2012 brings," said Rob Pease, President & CEO. "Over the past three years, we have established a solid foundation of high quality assets upon which we will continue to build value. We believe the Company is trading at a significant discount to the underlying value of its projects; substantial gold resources at good grade at Back River with considerable exploration upside and an eagerly anticipated PEA; a significant silver royalty that will only increase in value as Xstrata moves Hackett River forward; as well as a solid treasury and a growing talented team," he said. "As a result of the opportunities identified on our projects since 2009, and our plans to develop Back River into a mid-tier gold mine, 2012 is the largest planned Nunavut work program in the Company's history and we look forward to the beginning of drill results in the near future."

Bathurst Inlet Port & Road Project "BIPR"

The BIPR project has been in the planning stages in Nunavut for many years and contemplates building a deep water port in Bathurst Inlet (approximately 70 km to the north of Back River) and an all weather road connecting the port to existing ice roads which service the Ekati and Diavik mines from Yellowknife, NWT. The project had been well advanced through the environmental assessment and permitting process by its previous owners, but had stalled due to a lack of potential users of the infrastructure. BIPR is a feasibility stage project and as such, contains significant baseline and environmental data particularly relating to the area proximal to Sabina's contemplated operations.

With a view to applying this data to our own project development, in the fall of 2011, the Company purchased BIPR from its previous owners and became the proponent of the project in the permitting process. Last year the Company reported to the Nunavut Impact Review Board ("NIRB"), that it was assessing its options with the project and requested and was granted permission to file an update on its plans for BIPR at the end of March, 2012.

In the meantime, however, the sale of the Hackett River project to Xstrata has increased development activity in the region and reignited demand for BIPR, which, although not critical to the development of Back River, presents opportunities for synergies and potential economic benefits to Sabina. Consequently, Sabina and Xstrata have agreed to work together to push the project forward and will look to engage local communities and businesses and explore opportunities for direct Inuit participation in BIPR. A joint Xstrata/Sabina submission will be made to NIRB outlining high level plans for the project going forward by the end of the month.

Financial Results

For the year ended December 31, 2011, the Company reported a net loss of $12.6 million compared to a loss of $8.8 million in 2010. The loss in 2011 is higher than the same period in 2010 as a result of increased deferred income tax expensed and increased share-based compensation offset by increased interest income and increased amortization of the flow-through premium.

Operating expenses were $10.0 million compared to $5.4 million for the same period in 2010. The variance of $4.6 million is mainly due to increases in general and administration and share-based compensation. General and administration increased by $0.3 million due to recruiting costs incurred to fill a number of vacancies including CEO; VP Engineering and Project Development and Director, Environment and Community Relations. Share-based compensation increased by $4.1 million over 2010 due to the increased share price of the Company which is a key variable in the estimate of fair value. The number of options granted in 2011 was 2,921,410 compared to 2,223,000 in 2010.

The company had cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments of $159.9 million at December 31, 2011 compared to cash and cash equivalents of $82.8 million at December 31, 2010.
