CEO Commentary

Pete Dougherty, President and CEO of Argonaut Gold, stated, "In terms of production at El Castillo, the mining rate increased during the quarter with the addition of new equipment. We also saw an increase in utilization of the west side conveying unit. The strip ratio increased during the quarter as a result of commencing the final push back on the northern portion of the pit. Though we had a higher strip ratio, the grade reconciled positively at 0.34 g/t compared to expectations of 0.32 g/t. With March achieving an 18% increase over production from January, we anticipate continual improvement at El Castillo in terms of production. Our production guidance is 90,000 to 100,000 gold ounces at a cash cost per gold ounce sold of $775 to $800 at El Castillo in 2014 (cash cost per gold ounce sold is a non-IFRS measure, see note below).

At La Colorado, we have added to the crushing capacity by installing another cone crusher. We aim to increase our crushing rates, and thus production at the La Colorada mine. In regards to the mine plan, the processing of old heap leach pad material is expected to have positive results on the La Colorada production. Over the next two years, the mine plan will incorporate approximately four million tonnes of this material at 0.35 g/t gold and 11.2 g/t silver, with recoveries estimated at 50% gold and 30% silver. Current mining rates of 51,000 tonnes per day are sufficient to meet production guidance with the inclusion of the old heap leach material. At La Colorada, the guidance is for 45,000 to 50,000 ounces of gold equivalent production at a cash cost of $640 to $665 per gold ounce sold (cash cost per gold ounce sold is a non-IFRS measure, see note below).

Overall, the Company confirms its 2014 guidance of 135,000 to 150,000 gold equivalent ounces of production at a cash cost per gold ounce sold of $750 to $775 (cash cost per gold ounce sold is a non-IFRS measure, see note below).

Magino heap leach testing results are encouraging and more work will be done in regards to how these results may impact the project. We will continue to work on the permitting and expect to submit permit applications by the end of the year.

At San Antonio, we received notification that our appeal to reverse the decision on the 2012 MIA was rejected. While we would have liked to see a different result in the ruling, we will continue to pursue permits on both a community and social front, as well as via an appeal of the recent legal ruling. Meanwhile, we will continue to pursue an amendment to the municipal zoning plan in an effort to zone the project for 100% industrial use. The Company continues to believe in the merits and benefits of the project to all stakeholders, and continues to enjoy broad community support.

Finally at San Agustin, the exploration team has completed 13,000 metres of drilling. This work was focused on fill-in and step-out drilling of the known historic resource area. Drill results confirmed the continuity and grade of mineralization. In addition, the deposit remains open in all directions. A Phase II drill program is in progress and the Company expects to complete an additional 10,000 metres of RC drilling in approximately 100 holes. We are very pleased to have this exciting project in our portfolio. We expect to release an initial resource on the project in the late third quarter or early fourth quarter, followed by a PEA to be completed by the end of the year."

Financial Results - First Quarter 2014

During the first quarter of 2014, revenue was $39.1 million from gold sales of 28,639 ounces, compared to $43.1 million from gold sales of 25,441 ounces in the first quarter of 2013. Cash cost per gold ounce sold in the quarter was $731, compared to $594 in the same period of the prior year reflecting a decrease in capitalized stripping (cash cost per gold ounce sold is a non-IFRS measure, see note below).

During the first quarter of 2014, gross profit was $8.0 million, compared to $21.0 million in the first quarter of 2013. During the quarter, profit from operations was $4.6 million, compared to $17.2 million in the same period of the prior year. Net income for the period was $2.8 million, or $0.02 per basic share, versus $11.6 million, or $0.08 per basic share, in the first quarter of 2013.

Cash and cash equivalents was $59.7 million at March 31, 2014. Cash spent towards capital expenditures in the first quarter were $13.6 million, primarily spent on capitalized stripping, mining equipment purchases and equipment overhauls.

Summary of Production Results at La Colorada

Total tonnes mined increased by 6% for the first quarter 2014 over first quarter 2013. There were 10,812 ounces placed on the pad in the first quarter of 2014, compared to 5,142 ounces placed on the pad in the first quarter of 2013 (an increase of 110%).

First quarter production in 2014 of 8,792 GEO's was an increase of 33% over first quarter 2013 production of 6,598 GEO's. We anticipate gold equivalent ounce production rising to 45,000 to 50,000 ounces for 2014 as we ramp up crushing capacity and mine higher grade ore.

San Antonio

The Company continues to pursue approvals for its San Antonio project. As previously disclosed, on August 2, 2012 the Secretary for Environment and Natural Resources denied the MIA authorization for the Company's San Antonio project due to municipal zoning incompatibility over a portion of the site.

In response, the Company appealed the determination in connection with its MIA before the Mexican Federal Court. The Company's appeal regarding the MIA authorization was denied by the Mexican Federal Court on April 10, 2014. The Company has appealed the decision of the Mexican Federal Court and is also working with the local municipality to seek an amendment to the municipal zoning plan for the change of use of land permit required.

San Agustin Drilling Resource Update

Argonaut Gold has now completed a total of 13,000 metres of the 15,000 metre Phase I drill program at San Agustin. The RC drilling includes 12,000 metres of drilling and approximately 119 holes. This program has provided positive results and the mineral system remains open. A Phase II RC drill program of approximately 10,000 metres has commenced.

The objective of the Phase I drill program was to enhance our understanding of the deposit and confirm the known historic resource area. Drilling is now completed on an approximate 50 metre drill pattern. This drilling confirmed the continuity and grade of resource area. Phase II drilling is designed to step-out beyond the current drill areas and test areas of recognized geologic potential. The following table is divided into in-fill and extension drilling. Extension drilling to date has expanded the resource area upwards of 250 metres to the northwest with this area remaining a priority target area for Phase II drilling.

Total drilling for Phase I and Phase II will total approximately 25,000 metres in approximately 250 holes. Visit for complete results of San Agustin drill holes from 2014.

Tom Burkhart, Vice President of Exploration for Argonaut Gold, said, "The Company's drill program at San Agustin is confirming the strength and continuity of mineralization within the known historic resource area. Importantly our work supports the potential to confirm and significantly expand the size of the resource through additional drilling."

Non-IFRS Measures

The Company has included a non-IFRS measure for "Cash cost per gold ounce sold" in this press release to supplement its financial statements which are presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). Cash cost per gold ounce sold is equal to production costs less silver sales divided by gold ounces sold. The Company believes that this measure provides investors with an improved ability to evaluate the performance of the Company. Non-IFRS measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS. Therefore they may not be comparable to similar measures employed by other companies. The data is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Please see the management's discussion and analysis ("MD&A") for full disclosure on non-IFRS measures.

This press release should be read in conjunction with the Company's audited annual consolidated financial statements for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 and associated MD&A which are available from the Company's website,, in the "Investors" section under "Financial Filings", and under the Company's profile on SEDAR at

Technical Information and Mineral Properties Reports

Burkhart, Argonaut's Vice President of Exploration, and a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. For further information on the Company's properties please see the reports as listed below on the Company's website or on

The San Agustin project is not a material property of Argonaut. For further information on the San Agustin project, please see the historic estimates disclosed in the technical report title "San Agustin Resource Estimate" dated March 2009 and available under Silver Standard at Per Silver Standard, the historic mineral reserves estimate was completed by Gilles Arseneau, Ph.D., P.Geo., a Qualified Person, pursuant to NI 43-101, in a technical report completed by Wardrop, a TetraTech company, entitled "San Agustin Resources Estimate" dated March, 2009. The report was reviewed by Thomas Burkhart on behalf of Argonaut Gold, who has concluded that it continues to be relevant and reliable as a basis for understanding the potential resources at the property. To the best of Argonaut Gold's knowledge, information and belief, there is no new material, scientific or technical information that would make the disclosure of the mineral resources inaccurate or misleading. Argonaut Gold has not done sufficient work to classify the historic estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves and is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves. The Company has begun a 25,000 metre drill program to update the resource model and verify or upgrade the historic work to support the development of a current estimate.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-looking Statements

This press release contains certain "forward-looking statements" and "forward-looking information" under applicable Canadian securities laws concerning the proposed transaction and the business, operations and financial performance and condition of Argonaut Gold Inc. ("Argonaut" or "Argonaut Gold"). Forward-looking statements and forward-looking information include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to estimated production and mine life of the various mineral projects of Argonaut; synergies and financial impact of completed acquisitions; the benefits of the development potential of the properties of Argonaut; the future price of gold, copper, and silver; the estimation of mineral reserves and resources; the realization of mineral reserve estimates; the timing and amount of estimated future production; costs of production; success of exploration activities; and currency exchange rate fluctuations. Except for statements of historical fact relating to Argonaut, certain information contained herein constitutes forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are frequently characterized by words such as "plan," "expect," "project," "intend," "believe," "anticipate", "estimate" and other similar words, or statements that certain events or conditions "may" or "will" occur. Forward-looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of management at the date the statements are made, and are based on a number of assumptions and subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. Many of these assumptions are based on factors and events that are not within the control of Argonaut and there is no assurance they will prove to be correct.

Factors that could cause actual results to vary materially from results anticipated by such forward-looking statements include changes in market conditions, variations in ore grade or recovery rates, risks relating to international operations, fluctuating metal prices and currency exchange rates, changes in project parametres, the possibility of project cost overruns or unanticipated costs and expenses, labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry, failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated.

These factors are discussed in greater detail in Argonaut's most recent Annual Information Form and in the most recent Management Discussion and Analysis filed on SEDAR, which also provide additional general assumptions in connection with these statements. Argonaut cautions that the foregoing list of important factors is not exhaustive. Investors and others who base themselves on forward-looking statements should carefully consider the above factors as well as the uncertainties they represent and the risk they entail. Argonaut believes that the expectations reflected in those forward-looking statements are reasonable, but no assurance can be given that these expectations will prove to be correct and such forward-looking statements included in this press release should not be unduly relied upon. These statements speak only as of the date of this press release.

Although Argonaut has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Argonaut undertakes no obligation to update forward-looking statements if circumstances or management's estimates or opinions should change except as required by applicable securities laws. The reader is cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Statements concerning mineral reserve and resource estimates may also be deemed to constitute forward-looking statements to the extent they involve estimates of the mineralization that will be encountered if the property is developed. Comparative market information is as of a date prior to the date of this document.
