Silver Standard Resources, Inc.

Close of Sale of Snowfield and Brucejack Projects to Pretium and 2011 Production Guidance

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 12/21/10 -- Silver Standard Resources Inc. ("Silver Standard" or the "Company") (TSX: SSO)(NASDAQ: SSRI) is pleased to report the completion of its sale of the Snowfield and Brucejack Projects and provide silver production guidance for the Pirquitas Mine in northern Argentina.

Sale of Snowfield and Brucejack Projects

The sale of the Snowfield and Brucejack Projects in northern British Columbia to Pretium Resources Inc. ("Pretium") closed on December 21, 2010. Pursuant to the terms of the transaction, Silver Standard received cash proceeds of C$215.02 million (before deductions of C$12.645 million payable by Silver Standard), a convertible promissory note in the principal amount of C$39.753 million and 32,537,833 common shares of Pretium for total consideration of C$450 million. The outstanding amount of the convertible promissory note will be automatically converted into common shares of Pretium at $6 per share 40 days after the closing to the extent not previously repaid by Pretium. If the promissory note is repaid in full, Silver Standard will hold a 38.1% equity interest in Pretium. If the promissory note is fully converted, Silver Standard will hold a 45.8% equity interest in Pretium.

Silver Production Guidance

Based on fourth quarter results to date from the Pirquitas Mine, Silver Standard maintains full-year 2010 silver production guidance of 6.3 to 6.5 million ounces. The Company will produce approximately 8.5 million ounces of silver in 2011. The Company plans to provide an exploration and production update in January 2011.

"With the proceeds from the sale of Snowfield and Brucejack and the solid results from the Pirquitas Mine, Silver Standard is well-positioned to achieve growth through our project portfolio in 2011 and beyond," said Silver Standard's President and CEO John Smith.

Silver Standard is a silver mining company that seeks growth through discovery, the development of its project pipeline, and accretive acquisition opportunities.
