VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/14 -- Klondex Mines Ltd. (TSX: KDX)(OTCQX: KLNDF) ("Klondex" or the "Company") today announced that it has filed its Management Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") and its unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014. Unless otherwise stated, all currency amounts included in this release are expressed in Canadian dollars, and financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). Klondex's MD&A and full financial results for the second quarter are available on SEDAR, at www.sedar.com, and also have been posted on the Company's web site at www.klondexmines.com.

Second Quarter 2014 Financial Highlights


--  Revenue was $36.4 million from the sale of 25,725 gold equivalent ounces
    consisting of 20,293 gold ounces and 343,025 silver ounces

--  Gold equivalent ounces produced were 22,239, consisting of 17,093 gold
    ounces and 325,018 silver ounces, an increase of 38.5% from 1Q2014

--  Consolidated production cost per gold equivalent ounce sold was $730, a
    decline of 19.4% from 1Q2014

--  Net income totaled $4.4 million, $0.04 per share

--  Cash flow provided by operating activities was $14.2 million

--  Capital expenditures were $7.1 million

--  Cash balance of $15.1 million at the end of 2Q2014

--  Working capital of $21.2 million at the end of 2Q2014

Paul Huet, President and CEO commented, "Our strong second quarter results reflect Klondex's continuing transformation into a low-cost producer of gold and silver in north central Nevada. On a sequential basis, our recovered ounces increased while production costs decreased. We anticipate that production costs will continue to improve as we increase output from Fire Creek and further optimize operations at Midas."

"Subsequent to the quarter end, we substantially improved our financial position by closing a bought-deal financing for aggregate gross proceeds of $16.1 million. Net proceeds from this offering will be used primarily to help accelerate exploration and development at the Midas Mine and the Fire Creek Project. After a busy first half of 2014, we believe we have the right team, the right assets and the financial strength to continue to strive towards generating long-term value for shareholders."

Revenue

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, Klondex's revenue was $36.4 million and $39.1 million, respectively. The Company did not recognize revenue in 2013. The Company acquired Midas on February 11, 2014 and recorded sales from Midas beginning in 1Q2014. A production decision at Fire Creek has not been made by Klondex, as it is still in the bulk sampling phase. Although a production decision at Fire Creek has not been made, the mineralized material extracted from Fire Creek under the bulk sample permit is processed through the Midas mill. Based on the quantities of gold generated under the bulk sample permit, the Company first recognized revenue from the bulk sample program at the Fire Creek Project in 2Q2014. In 2Q2014, the Company sold 25,725 gold equivalent ounces and in 1H2014 sold 27,573 gold equivalent ounces.

Cost of Sales

The production costs in 2Q2014 were $18.7 million and in 1H2014 were $20.4 million. The production cost per gold equivalent ounce sold in 2Q2014 was $730 and for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $742. See "Non-IFRS Measures". The depreciation and depletions costs in 2Q2014 were $6.6 million and in 1H2014 were $6.9 million.

Gross Profit

The gross profit in 2Q2014 was $11.1 million and in 1H2014 was $11.7 million which can be attributed to higher volume of gold and silver produced at the Company's projects.

General and Administrative Expenses

The general and administrative expenses in 2Q2014 were $2.2 million (2Q2013 - $0.8 million) and in 1H2014 were $4.4 million (1H2013 - $1.8 million). The increase in G&A expenses over the prior year are due the growth of the Company as it has transformed from an exploration stage company to a production stage company.

Net Income

The net income in 2Q2014 was $4.4 million (2Q2013 - ($0.8 million)) and in 1H2014 was $2.0 million (1H2013 - ($1.8 million)). In 2Q2014, the Company generated net income as it transformed into a producing mining company and generated sufficient revenue to cover general and administrative expenses and all other costs.

NON-IFRS MEASURES

The Company has included a non-IFRS measure for "Production costs per gold equivalent ounce" in this MD&A to supplement its financial statements which are presented in accordance with IFRS.

Cautionary Note Regarding Technical Information and Forward-looking Information

A production decision at the Midas mine was made by previous operators of the mine, prior to the completion of the acquisition of the Midas mine by Klondex and Klondex made a decision to continue production subsequent to the acquisition. This decision by Klondex to continue production and, to the knowledge of Klondex, this production decision was not based on a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability prepared in accordance with NI 43-101. Readers are cautioned that there is increased uncertainty and higher risk of economic and technical failure associated with such production decisions.

This news release contains certain information that may constitute forward-looking information under applicable Canadian securities legislation, including but not limited to information about current expectations on the timing and success of exploration and metallurgical sampling activities, the timing and success of mining operations, the Company's intention and ability to monetize mineralized material, the successful execution of the bulk sampling program at the Fire Creek Project, project development and related permitting. This forward-looking information entails various risks and uncertainties that are based on current expectations, and actual results may differ materially from those contained in such information. These uncertainties and risks include, but are not limited to, the strength of the global economy; the price of gold; operational, funding and liquidity risks; the degree to which mineral resource estimates are reflective of actual mineral resources; the degree to which factors which would make a mineral deposit commercially viable are present; the risks and hazards associated with underground operations; and the ability of Klondex to fund its substantial capital requirements and operations. Risks and uncertainties about the Company's business are more fully discussed in the Company's disclosure materials filed with the securities regulatory authorities in Canada and available at www.sedar.com. Readers are urged to read these materials. Klondex assumes no obligation to update any forward-looking information or to update the reasons why actual results could differ from such information unless required by law.
