First Majestic Silver Corp. is committed to building a senior Silver producing mining company based on an aggressive development and acquisition plan with a focus on Mexico. The Company presently owns and operates three producing silver mines in Mexico; the La Parrilla Silver Mine, the San Martin Silver Mine and the La Encantada Silver Mine. Production from these three mines is anticipated to be over 7.5 million ounces of silver in 2011.

Management of First Majestic is committed to building a senior silver producing mining company based on the Company's current portfolio of projects focused on silver in Mexico.

First Majestic owns three producing silver mines and two development projects through four separate wholly owned Mexican subsidiaries. The La Encantada Silver Mine is held by Minera La Encantada, S.A. de C.V., the La Parrilla Silver Mine and the Del Toro Silver Mine are held by First Majestic Plata, S.A. de C.V., the San Martin Silver Mine is held by Minera El Pilon, S.A. de C.V., and the Real de Catorce Silver Project is held by Minera Real Bonanza, S.A. de C.V.

First Majestic's largest operation; the La Encantada Silver Mine was expanded several times since 2006 to reach the current capacity of 3750 tpd. Production reached close to 3.8 million ounces of silver in 2010 and is anticipated to reach approximately 4.5 million ounces of silver in the form of Dore bars in 2011.

The Company's second mine, the La Parrilla is located conveniently outside the city of Durango. First Majestic commissioned a new 800tpd mill in mid 2007 and expanded the operation again to 850 tpd at the end of 2008. Production in 2010 was 1.8 million ounces of equivalent Silver. A major expansion is currently underway to double the capacity at La Parrilla for 2012.

First Majestic's third operating mine, the San Martin Silver Mine was expanded to 950 tpd in late 2008. Annualized production is approximately 1.3 million ounces of silver in dore bars.

Management feels strongly that investors will continue to witness a dramatic bull market in precious metals over the coming years. For this reason, a focus to continue to develop and increase production at its core assets will continue. In addition, management is determined to expand First Majestic's asset base and thus continues to investigate other interesting advanced stage silver projects in Mexico. With a Management team comprised of proven company and mine builders; shareholders are poised to capitalize on First Majestic's rapid evolution into a world class silver producer.

$4.5 million

Net Profit after taxes
$0.9 million

Direct Cash Costs per ounce
US$4.94

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

Total production for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 was 1,040,117 ounces of silver equivalents consisting of 929,964 ounces of silver, 491 ounces of gold and 1,828,739 pounds of lead. This compares to the 1,061,720 ounces of silver equivalents produced in the quarter ended March 31, 2008, which consisted of 895,358 ounces of silver, 240 ounces of gold, 1,857,897 pounds of lead and 318,539 pounds of zinc. Total production for the quarter ended December 31, 2008 was 1,056,219 ounces of silver equivalents which included 930,120 ounces of silver, 403 ounces of gold and 2,093,988 pounds of lead.


Gross revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2009, prior to smelting, refining, transportation charges and metal deductions, was $17.5 million compared to $16.2 million in the same quarter of 2008; an increase of 8%. In the quarter ended March 31, 2009, the Company shipped 996,595 silver equivalent ounces including 67,620 ounces of coins, ingots and bullion at an average price of $17.52 per ounce (US$14.07) compared to 1,019,490 equivalent ounces in the quarter ended March 31, 2008 at an average price of $15.94 (US$15.87) per ounce. The Company has been successful in realizing an average selling price of US$14.07, higher than the average trading price of silver in the quarter of US$12.61 per ounce (Source - London Bullion Marketing Association). Compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2008, the Company increased shipped ounces by 20% compared to the 827,845 ounces of silver equivalent previously shipped, at an average price of $14.15 per ounce (US$11.67).


The Company generated net income after taxes of $0.9 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2009 compared to net income after taxes of $1.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2008, and a net loss after taxes of $5.5 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2008. The net income after taxes for this quarter was after recording non-cash stock-based compensation expense of $0.9 million, a foreign exchange loss of $1.0 million and an income tax recovery of $0.1 million.


Sales revenue (after smelting, refining, transportation charges and metals deductions) for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 was $14.4 million; an increase of 11% compared to $13.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2008. Smelting, refining, transportation charges and metal deductions decreased by 3.3% of gross revenue to $3.1 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2009 compared to $3.3 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2008, and $2.6 million in the quarter ended December 31, 2008. This was attributed to the revised smelting and refining agreements renegotiated effective December 1, 2008; as well as the new smelting and refining relationships entered into in February 2009. Average smelting and transportation charges for doré in the quarter ended March 31, 2009 were US$0.51 per equivalent ounce whereas for concentrates were US$3.23 per equivalent ounce. The smelting rates for concentrate were higher than expected as final settlements of concentrates occur 60 days after shipment, therefore the settlement lag resulted in older shipments of November and December settling in Q1-2009 under previous smelting agreements.


Direct cash costs per ounce of silver for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 decreased to US$4.94 per ounce of silver, compared to US$6.51 per ounce of silver for the quarter ended March 31, 2008, due to higher silver ounces produced in 2009 and reduction of mining expenses and indirect costs. Direct cash costs for the quarter ended December 31, 2008 were US$6.37 per ounce.


Mine operating earnings for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 were $4.5 million, a decrease of $0.2 million or 4% compared to mine operating earnings of $4.7 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2008, and a mine operating loss $1.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2008.


The Company had operating income of $1.8 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2009 compared to operating income of $1.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2008, an increase of $0.3 million or 23%. Operating loss for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2008 was $3.8 million.


At the La Encantada Silver Mine, construction is progressing according to plan on the US$21.6 million, 3,500 tonnes per day ("tpd") cyanidation plant. The plant is scheduled to commence operations in July 2009. Once completed, the new plant is anticipated to produce over four million ounces of silver annually in the form of doré bars. Total capitalized construction in progress consisted of $12.9 million with a further $1.4 million being un-capitalized advances to contractors.


During the quarter ended March 31, 2009, the Company invested $1.8 million on its mineral properties and a further $1.6 million on additions to plant and equipment on a cash basis. This compares to $4.6 million invested on its mineral properties, and a further $3.0 million on additions to plant and equipment in the quarter ended March 31, 2008, and $0.7 million invested on its mineral properties, and a further $0.4 million on additions to plant and equipment in the quarter ended December 31, 2008.


On March 5, 2009, the Company completed a public offering with a syndicate of underwriters who purchased 8,487,576 units at an issue price of $2.50 per unit for gross proceeds to the Company of $21,218,940.
OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

The primary focus in the first quarter of 2009 was reducing operating costs and completing the La Encantada mill expansion program. As shown in the financial results, the Company has been successful in reducing operating costs across all of its mines. Presently, only two drill rigs are operating compared with 23 drill rigs in the third quarter of 2008. In addition, underground mine development is being financed from cash flow versus capital as was the case in 2008. These scaled back exploration and development measures will remain in force for the balance of 2009.

Prior to the decision to reduce the Company's exploration program, the Company met its target on Resource development. The Company released two NI 43-101 Reports on both the La Parrilla Silver Mine and the San Martin Silver Mine in the first quarter which substantially increasing previously released estimates. As at the latest NI 43-101 Reports published in Q1, the Company has defined a global Resource of 300 million ounces of silver equivalents in all categories.

La Parrilla Silver Mine

At the La Parrilla mine, production continued from the Rosarios/La Blanca and Quebradillas areas. The flotation circuit was operating more efficiently and recoveries are now closer to the target of 75%, however, at the cyanidation circuit recoveries had been affected by the mix of ores and short leaching times. Efforts are being made in order to improve the recoveries by increasing leaching time increasing the oxygenation in the cyanidation circuit.

During the quarter, the La Parrilla mine received the Clean Industry Certification from PROFEPA (Procuradoria Federal de Protecion al Ambiente). This certification resulted from a concerted effort over a period of more than two years.

San Martin Silver Mine

During the quarter the production at the San Martin was focused on improving head grades and reducing operating costs. Management was very pleased with the progress at this operation as can be seen by the cost reductions achieved in the quarter. These improvements were largely achieved due to a better mix of ore produced from the mine and the recovery of some backfills and dumps, which allowed the mine to operate in a more efficient way which resulted in a cost reduction of 61% compared to the first quarter of 2008.

La Encantada Silver Mine

At the La Encantada mine, a special effort is underway to improve the recoveries at the flotation plant which had been affected in the last few quarters by the mix of ore from the Azul y Oro vein which was found to contain manganese. Several new reagents and different mixes of ores are being tested in order to improve recoveries. In addition a new washing screen has been installed in order to wash the dump material which is anticipated to increase the grades of the recovered ore. This new process is expected to be operational during the last part of May.

Construction of the new 3500 tpd cyanidation mill continues to be the primary focus at the La Encantada and is proceeding well. All the leaching tanks and CCD thickeners are constructed with the installation of the mechanisms now underway. New pieces of equipment are arriving regularly and the plant is still anticipated to be commissioned in July. Once this new circuit is completed, the silver precipitates produced from the concentrates will be shipped to the La Parrilla mill for the production of doré bars.

In Summary

Equally important to increasing silver production is further cost reductions where possible. The 2009 operating plan thus far represents a year of reduced operating costs as a result of the Company's pursuit of aggressive growth based on the expansion of its operations and Resources. Management is pleased with the many cost cutting measures underway, and it is believed that further improvements in profitability can be achieved with additional improvements expected going forward.
Finally, in this turbulent financial and commodity environment, First Majestic has been reacting by cutting costs wherever possible. The Company is continuing to analyze various options to reduce operating costs and to squeeze out the most optimum margins possible. During the quarter a new smelting agreement was executed for the sale of all the lead concentrates produced in 2009, and a new agreement was also signed for the sale of all doré produced by the Company in 2009. Both these agreements include terms better than previous agreements and are expected to go a long way in improving profitability.
First Majestic is a producing silver company focused in México and is aggressively pursuing its business plan to become a senior silver producer through the development of its existing assets and the pursuit through acquisition of additional assets that contribute to achieving its corporate growth objectives.

Interest accrues at an annualized floating rate of one-month LIBOR plus 5%. Interest is payable monthly and the principal amount is repayable based on the volume of lead concentrate shipped with minimum monthly instalments of US$250,000 required.
In September 2009, First Majestic agreed to acquire Normabec Mining Resources Ltd. ("Normabec"). The acquisition will be an all-share transaction by way of plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement"). The agreement provides that First Majestic will acquire Normabec in exchange for the issuance directly to Normabec's shareholders of 0.060425 First Majestic shares for each Normabec common share outstanding. Normabec's primary asset is the Real de Catorce Silver Project which is located in the northern portion of San Luis Potosi state, Mexico. The proposed Arrangement has already received shareholder approval, regulatory and court approvals, and is expected to close on November 13, 2009.
In October 2009, the Company entered into an agreement with the Mexican Mining Development Trust - Fideicomiso de Fomento Minero (also known as FIFOMI) for a capital asset loan and a working capital loan, with both facilities totalling $53.8 million Mexican pesos (CAD$4.3 million). The funds from these loans will contribute to the completion of the 3,500 tpd cyanidation plant at the La Encantada Silver Mine and for working capital necessary for the commissioning of the new plant.
In Summary

First Majestic has had a very active quarter of operations with a significant improvement in cash flow from operations related to lower costs of operations combined with higher production and increased revenues from silver sales. The Company is now commissioning the new La Encantada plant which will increase daily production significantly, taking the Company from current levels to approximately 6.3 million ounces in 2010. The Inaugural Ceremony at the La Encantada Silver Mine is being held on November 19, 2009.

The Company has also been focused on completing the acquisition of Normabec thereby adding another valuable asset to the Company's portfolio, the Real de Catorce Silver Project which management expects will ultimately become a producing mine in the future.

In the third quarter the Company has also strengthened its balance sheet with a $9.4 million private placement, a $4.3 million development loan, and a $2.7 million settlement of current liabilities and a further reduction of accounts payable of $2.1 million. With the completion of the capital investment at the La Encantada Silver Mine, the focus of the Company is now on generating cash flow from operations to further bolster our balance sheet.

First Majestic is a producing silver company focused in Mexico and is aggressively pursuing its business plan to become a senior silver producer through the development of its existing assets and the pursuit through acquisition of additional assets that contribute to achieving its corporate growth objectives.

2009 ANNUAL AND Q4 FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE AND HIGHLIGHTS

Consolidated gross revenue (prior to smelting, refining and metal deductions) for the year ended 2009 was $71.5 million compared to $56.1 million in 2008, an increase of $15.4 million or 27.5%.
Consolidated gross revenue (prior to smelting, refining and metal deductions) for the quarter ended December 31, 2009 (Q4) was $21,436,456 compared to $11,712,165 for the quarter ended December 31, 2008 for an increase of $9,724,291, or 83%. The improvement in revenues in the fourth quarter of 2009 is attributable to a 38% increase in equivalent silver ounces sold and a 32% increase in the average gross revenue per ounce realized. These improvements resulted in net revenue for the fourth quarter increasing from $9,106,605 in 2008 to $18,374,117 in 2009, an increase of 102%.
In 2009 the Company shipped (sold) 4,233,703 ounces of silver equivalent at an average price of $16.89 per ounce (US$14.79) compared to 3,590,202 ounces in 2008 at an average price of $15.63 per ounce (US$14.66), representing an increase of 18% in shipments. The average COMEX trading price of silver in 2009 was US$14.68 per ounce.
Total production for 2009 was 4,337,103 ounces of silver equivalents consisting of 3,797,520 ounces of silver, 2,670 ounces of gold, 6,587,074 pounds of lead and 8,913 pounds of zinc. This compares to the 4,229,998 ounces of silver equivalents produced in 2008, which consisted of 3,654,698 ounces of silver, 1,661 ounces of gold, 7,457,707 pounds of lead and 425,710 pounds of zinc.
Net sales revenue (after smelting and refining charges and metals deductions) for 2009 was $59.5 million, an increase of 34.3% compared to $44.3 million for 2008. Smelting and refining charges and metal deductions decreased to 17% of gross revenue in 2009 compared to 21% of gross revenue in 2008. Average smelting charges for dore in 2009 were US$0.48 per equivalent silver ounce whereas for concentrates charges were US$3.96 per equivalent silver ounce.
The Company generated net income for 2009 of $6.3 million, or earnings per common share (EPS) of $0.08 compared to a net loss in 2008 of $5.1 million or a loss per common share of ($0.07). Net income for 2009 was after deducting non-cash stock-based compensation expense of $3.3 million, a write-down of mineral properties of $2.6 million, a write-down of marketable securities of $0.4 million and an income tax recovery of $3.2 million. Neglecting the effect of write-downs, earnings per share in 2009 would have been $0.11 per share.
Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2009 was $2,492,488 or $0.03 per common share compared to a net loss of $5,538,906 or ($0.08) per common share in the quarter ended December 31, 2008, for an increase of $8,031,394.
Direct cash costs per ounce of silver for 2009 decreased to US$5.61 per ounce of silver, compared to US$5.87 per ounce of silver for 2008. During 2009, the Company's operations achieved operational efficiencies resulting in reductions in production costs per tonne and cash costs per ounce.
Direct cash costs per ounce of silver for Q4 of 2009 decreased to US$5.69 per ounce of silver, compared to US$6.37 per ounce of silver for Q4 of 2008.
Mine operating earnings for 2009 increased by 146% to $18.5 million, an increase of $11.0 million, compared to mine operating earnings of $7.5 million for 2008, due to an increase in sales volume from 3.6 million ounces of silver equivalent in 2008 to 4.2 million ounces in 2009, combined with an increase in sales revenue per ounce from $15.63 (US$14.66) in 2008 to $16.89 (US$14.79) in 2009.
Mine operating earnings increased by 818% to $8,092,993 for the quarter ended December 31, 2009 from a mine operating loss of $1,126,697 for the same quarter in the prior year. This was primarily due to the increase in net revenue.
The Company had operating income of $4.5 million for 2009 compared to an operating loss of $3.7 million for 2008, an increase of $8.2 million or 220%.
Operating income increased by $5,758,869 or 152% to $1,971,450 for the quarter ended December 31, 2009, from an operating loss of $3,787,419 for the quarter ended December 31, 2008, due to the increase in mine operating earnings.
During the fourth quarter of 2009, the new cyanidation plant at the La Encantada Silver Mine was commissioned and the ramp up process commenced. By the beginning of the second quarter of 2010, this new plant is expected to achieve commercial production, reaching full capacity of 3,500 tonnes-per-day and producing at an annualized rate of over four million ounces in Q2 of 2010. Total capitalized construction in progress at La Encantada at December 31, 2009 consisted of $31.3 million (US$29.8 million) with a further $2.9 million (US$2.7 million) advanced to contractors for equipment.
During the year ended December 31, 2009, the Company raised a total of $35.3 million through a combination of debt and equity. New funds consisted of $29.4 million from equity issuances, $4.3 million from a Mexican government sponsored development loan, as well as $1.6 million from the pre-sale of lead concentrates from the La Parrilla mine. This compares to $41.6 million raised in the year ended December 31, 2008.
During the year ended December 31, 2009, the Company invested $14.0 million in its mineral properties and a further $19.4 million in additions to plant and equipment on a cash basis. This compares to $24.5 million invested in its mineral properties and a further $14.9 million in additions to plant and equipment in the year ended December 31, 2008.
During 2009, the Company reduced current liabilities by $19.6 million. This was achieved by (i) placing $14.3 million in a lawyers trust pending the outcome of the Company's action against a previous majority owner of First Silver, (ii) settling certain other current liabilities amounting to $2.7 million by the issuance of 1,191,852 common shares, and (iii) through additional reductions of accounts payable and accrued liabilities by $2.6 million.
In November 2009, First Majestic acquired Normabec Mining Resources Ltd. ("Normabec") in an all-share transaction by way of plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement"). First Majestic acquired Normabec in exchange for the issuance directly to Normabec's shareholders of 0.060425 First Majestic shares and 0.25 shares of Brionor Resources Inc., a newly formed entity, for each Normabec common share outstanding. Normabec's primary asset is the Real de Catorce Silver Project which is located in the northern portion of San Luis Potosi State, Mexico. The results of operations of Normabec were consolidated into the operations of the Company effective November 14, 2009.
In Summary

First Majestic's year ended on a very positive note, with the fourth quarter results being the strongest in the Company's history. It is noteworthy that the strong results in 2009 can be primarily credited to the La Parrilla and San Martin operations as the La Encantada expansion project was commissioned in November and had not delivered significant production increases to year end.

Management is confident that 2010 will be an even better year financially for the Company, due to increases in production and profitability expected from the new 3,500 tpd cyanidation mill at La Encantada which is in the ramp up stage and is expected to reach full production in Q2.

First Majestic is a producing silver company focused in Mexico and is aggressively pursuing its business plan to become a senior silver producer through the development of its existing assets and the pursuit through acquisition of additional assets that contribute to achieving its corporate growth objectives.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/08/10 -- First Majestic Silver Corp. (TSX: FR)(OTCQX: FRMSF)(PINK SHEETS: FRMSF)(FRANKFURT: FMV)(WKN: A0LHKJ) -

Highlights


-- Silver production increases by 9% to a quarterly record of 1,538,798
ounces
-- Silver ounces amount to 93% of total equivalent silver production of
1,651,411 ounces
-- Total processed ore in the quarter increased by 20% to a record 404,349
tonnes

First Majestic Silver Corp. ("First Majestic" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that production in the second quarter ending June 30, 2010 increased to a new company record of 1,651,411 equivalent ounces of silver representing a 2% increase over the previous quarter and a 72% increase over the second quarter of 2009.

Other Developments

The Company's underground development in the second quarter consisted of 5,063 metres, compared to 5,100 metres completed in the previous quarter. There was 3,090 meters of diamond drilling completed in the quarter which consisted of definition drilling to assist in mining activity, resource upgrading and exploration at the Company's three mines.

At the La Encantada Silver Mine:


-- The new 3,500 tpd cyanidation mill achieved commercial production
effective April 1, 2010. Starting this quarter, all revenues and
associated operating costs will be treated as commercial production
rather than being capitalized, as was the case in the first quarter.
-- Average throughput in the new cyanidation plant averaged 2,908 tpd in
the second quarter.
-- With the cyanidation plant operating at close to capacity a decision was
made to suspend production of lead concentrate through the flotation
circuit and focus on silver Dore production only, thereby dramatically
reducing smelting and refining costs.
-- As throughput reaches capacity in the third quarter and other
efficiencies are achieved, higher production levels are anticipated.

At the La Parrilla Silver Mine:


-- The completion of a new three kilometre ramp at the Quebradillas mining
area in the first quarter is now having a positive impact on current
production levels.
-- Due to a large high grade ore body that was discovered in 2006, this
large sulphide area will allow for the eventual expansion of the La
Parrilla mill which is now in the planning stages.
-- This mill expansion will allow for the production of zinc concentrates
in addition to the lead concentrate and Dore bars currently being
produced.

At the San Martin Mine:


-- The 2010 drilling exploration program from surface commenced in the
second quarter. The La Esperanza vein which was discovered and sampled
in mid 2009 and runs parallel to the main Zuloaga vein returned high
anomalous values of silver on surface and is a high priority target for
San Martin.

Mr. Keith Neumeyer, President and CEO had the following to say about the recent production results: "First Majestic continues to break new records and we are extremely pleased with the second quarter results. Our operational team continues to demonstrate that they are committed to increasing efficiencies to achieve our production goal of 6.35 million silver equivalent ounces in 2010."

Ramon Davila, Ing., Chief Operating Officer for First Majestic, is the Qualified Person who reviewed this news release and oversaw the mining operations.

First Majestic is a producing silver company focused in Mexico and is aggressively pursuing its business plan to become a senior silver producer through the development of its existing assets and the pursuit through acquisition of additional assets that contribute to achieving its corporate growth objectives.

The full version of the financial statements and the management's discussion and analysis can be viewed on the Company's web site at www.firstmajestic.com or on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Results of Operations

Consolidated gross revenue (prior to smelting & refining charges, and metal deductions) for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 increased 114% to $36.1 million (US$34.7 million) compared to $16.8 million (US$15.4 million) for the quarter ended September 30, 2009, for an increase of $19.2 million. Compared to the second quarter ended June 30, 2010, consolidated gross revenue increased by $4.3 million or 13%. The increase in revenues in the third quarter of 2010 is primarily attributable to a 15% increase in silver ounces sold compared to the previous quarter. The increase in ounces sold is due to increased production from the plant at the La Encantada Silver Mine as well as from improving operating levels at the La Parrilla Silver Mine which combined to contribute a 95% increase in silver production when compared to the third quarter of 2009.

Net sales revenue (after smelting and refining charges and metals deductions) for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 was $33.5 million, an increase of 144% compared to $13.7 million for the third quarter of 2009. Net sales revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 increased by 16% compared to $29.0 million in the second quarter of 2010. Smelting and refining charges and metal deductions decreased to 7% of gross revenue in the third quarter of 2010 compared to 19%of gross revenue in the third quarter of 2009, due to a shift in the production mix toward silver doré which is a benefit from the new cyanidation plant at La Encantada. Average smelting charges for doré in the third quarter of 2010 were US$0.39 per silver ounce as compared to US$3.84 per silver ounce for concentrates.

Net income after taxes was $10.3 million in the third quarter of 2010 resulting in basic earnings per common share ("EPS") of $0.11, compared to a net income in the third quarter of 2009 of $1.8 million or an EPS of $0.02. Net income for the third quarter of 2010 was after taking a non-cash future income tax provision of $3.5 million or $0.04 per share and a foreign exchange loss (due to a stronger Peso) which increased by $1.0 million or $0.01 per share over the previous quarter, when net income after taxes was $8.9 million and basic EPS was $0.10.

Mine operating earnings for the third quarter of 2010 increased by 307% to $16.9 million, compared to mine operating earnings of $4.1 million for the third quarter of 2009, and are associated with an increase in net revenue during the third quarter of 2010. When compared to the second quarter of 2010, mine operating earnings increased by 29% from $13.1 million to $16.9 million.

Operating income increased by 617%, or $11.8 million, to $13.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010, from $1.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2009, due to the 84% increase in ounces sold and the 23% increase in average US$ revenue per ounce of silver sold. When compared to the second quarter of 2010, operating income increased by 38% from $10.0 million to $13.8 million.

Production of silver, excluding any equivalents from gold, lead or zinc, increased 95% compared to the third quarter of 2009. The Company produced 1,823,370 ounces of silver in the current quarter, 1,538,798 ounces of silver in prior quarter and 935,996 ounces in the third quarter of 2009. In the current quarter, 95% of First Majestic's revenue resulted from the sale of pure silver making it the purest silver producer relative to its peers.

Total silver equivalents production for the third quarter of 2010 increased 76% from the same quarter of the prior year and 16% from the prior quarter to 1,920,498 ounces of silver equivalents consisting of 1,823,370 ounces of silver, 323 ounces of gold, 1,248,086 pounds of lead and 228,517 pounds of zinc. This compares to the 1,089,481 ounces of silver equivalents produced in the third quarter of 2009, which consisted of 935,996 ounces of silver, 732 ounces of gold, 1,690,354 pounds of lead, and 8,913 pounds of zinc and compares with production in the previous quarter of 1,656,165 ounces of silver equivalents consisting of 1,538,798 ounces of silver, 541 ounces of gold and 1,494,548 pounds of lead.
In the third quarter of 2010, the Company sold 1,869,393 ounces of silver equivalent at an average price of $19.30 per ounce (US$18.57) compared to 1,018,417 ounces in the third quarter of 2009 at an average price of $16.54 per ounce (US$15.07), representing an increase of 84% in shipments over the same quarter in 2009 and a 15% increase over the preceding quarter. The average trading price for silver in the third quarter was US$18.96.

The new La Encantada cyanidation plant achieved average throughput of 3,477 tonnes per day in the third quarter compared to 2,900 tonnes per day in the second quarter. The La Encantada plant produces silver doré bars which are 93-97% silver with small amounts of lead, gold and other metals making up the balance of the contents in these bars. The economic differences between doré and concentrate production are significant and are beginning to reflect in improved financial numbers. The economics of switching from concentrate production to doré production resulted in a 56% savings of smelting and refining costs per silver ounce for consolidated operations in the third quarter of 2010 compared to the third quarter of 2009.

Total cash costs per ounce (including smelting, refining, metal deductions, transportation and other selling costs, and byproduct credits, which is a non-GAAP measure) for the third quarter of 2010 was US$7.42 per ounce of silver compared to US$8.64 per ounce of silver in the third quarter of 2009 and US$8.20 per ounce in the second quarter of 2010. The cost decrease was attributed to reduced smelting & refining costs (US$1.34 per ounce this quarter versus US$3.08 per ounce for the same quarter last year) related to the converting the production at La Encantada plant to doré production instead of concentrate production.

On a year to date basis, the Company's cash position has increased by $19.6 million to $25.5 million at the end of the third quarter, and working capital increased by $19.3 million to $24.1 million over the same period. The Company achieved these increases while also investing $11.6 million in plant and equipment and $10.0 million in its mineral properties. In addition, in September and October the Company repaid in advance 100% of the $4.1 million balance of the FIFOMI loans outstanding leaving the Company debt free, excluding the small prepayment facility and capital leases.

First Majestic Silver Corp. is pleased to announce the expansion of its 100% owned La Parrilla Silver Mine, located in Durango, Mexico has commenced. The extremely successful completion of the expansion of the Company’s La Encantada Silver Mine has allowed management to focus its efforts on the Company’s next major expansion project with ground breaking that started on December 1st, 2010.

During the past three years the La Parrilla mine has undergone extensive development to prepare the mine for higher production levels. During the past six months this expansion plan has been assessed and defined to optimize the La Parrilla operation into the future. Once this construction project is completed, the La Parrilla mine will be operating at twice current levels. This expansion will result in the mill capacity reaching 1,600 tpd from the current 850 tpd and will effectively double the current output of the La Parrilla operation from approximately 1.5 million ounces to 3.0 million ounces of silver equivalent annually.

The following activities have been achieved to date:

· Engineering and design work has been completed for the expansion of the processing plant including a new and larger crushing area, the addition of a third ball mill and the increase of capacity of both the flotation and cyanidation circuits. Each circuit’s capacity is currently 425 tpd and once the expansion is completed, each circuit will continue to run in parallel but at the higher rate of 800 tpd for a total capacity of 1,600 tpd.

· Engineering plans for the Rosarios/La Rosa, San Marcos, Quebradillas and Vacas mines have been defined and scheduled, including the planning of development and preparation of required production areas, planning and scheduling the construction of a new production shaft for the Rosarios mine, and all other required mine infrastructure to achieve the expanded production levels.

· All final documentation required for the Environmental Impact Statement and the ‘Change of use of Land’ have been submitted to the SEMARNAT (the government environmental authorities) office in Durango, with final approvals expected prior to year end.

Timelines for the Construction Project:

· Land clearing and preparation activities commenced on December 1st, 2010

· Construction of the new crushing area will begin in January 2011. A new third ball mill has already been purchased and is on site and is expected to be ready for installation by June 2011.

· The expansion of the flotation circuit is planned for completion by the end of July 2011. This new circuit will produce both a lead and zinc concentrate. A full year of production at 800 tpd is expected to produce 5,673,096 pounds of lead and 5,236,704 pounds of zinc. In flotation, the silver will report to the lead concentrate which is expected to contain 1,429,991 ounces of silver annually.

· The expansion of the cyanidation circuit will follow in the second half of 2011 with the replacement and expansion of eight leach tanks and the construction of four additional leach tanks. Several new technologies will also be utilized; similar to those adopted in the Company’s recently completed La Encantada operation. These items will include; new clarification filters, new induction furnaces and new filter presses for the tailings in order to recover and re-use solution and to save on water consumption. In addition, the plan includes new systems for automation of feeding processes for chemicals and reagents.

· Inauguration of this newly expanded cyanidation circuit is expected to take place early in the first quarter of 2012. Once completed, this larger 800 tpd cyanidation circuit will produce an additional 899,792 ounces of silver in the form of silver Doré bars annually.

The total capital budget for this expansion is US$27.3 million, consisting of: US$17.5 million for plant equipment and construction costs; US$2.8 million for additions to the underground fleet; US$8.1 million for underground mine development and US$4.0 million for infrastructure including a new power line and substation. All required capital for this expansion project will be funded internally from cash flows.
The internal rate of return (IRR) on this investment is expected to be 126% considering a price of silver of US$20.00 per ounce and lead and zinc prices of US$1.00 per pound.

Once in full operation at the newly expanded rate of 1,600 tpd, the La Parrilla Silver Mine will produce 3.0 million silver equivalent ounces annually consisting of 2.3 million ounces silver and 0.7 million ounces of silver equivalents in the form of lead and zinc. The expected Total Cash Costs are anticipated to be US$5.50 per ounce of silver.

First Majestic is a producing silver company focused in Mexico and is aggressively pursuing its business plan to become a senior silver producer through the development of its existing assets and the pursuit through acquisition of additional assets that contribute to achieving its corporate growth objectives.

First Majestic Silver Corp.: Mill Capacity at La Parrilla to Reach 2,000 tpd Following Positive NI 43-101 Pre-Feasibility Study

First Majestic Silver Corp FR 9/13/2011 7:31:31 AMVANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Sep 13, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

FIRST MAJESTIC SILVER CORP. (TSX: FR)(NYSE: AG)(FRANKFURT: FMV)(WKN: A0LHKJ) (the "Company" or "First Majestic") is pleased to announce an update regarding its activities in Mexico at the La Parrilla Silver Mine and a new NI 43-101 Reserve/Resource update.

REPORTED HIGHLIGHTS

-- Silver Equivalent Reserves increases 607% to 37.1M ounces

-- Silver Equivalent Measured & Indicated Resources decreased by 74% to 8.1M ounces, resulting from a large portion being upgraded to Reserves

-- Silver Equivalent Inferred Resources increased by 16% to 61.2M ounces

-- Dual-processing mill capacity to reach 2,000 tonnes per day (1,000 tpd flotation; 1,000 tpd cyanidation) by December 31st, 2011

-- Total Estimated Production of over 3M ounces pure silver annually plus approximately 6.0M pounds of lead and 4.8M pounds of zinc over LOM-- Life of Mine (LOM) increases from 2 years to 14 years

-- Post Tax NPV at 5% discount = US$78.6M with an IRR of 40% using $23.85 silver price

-- Cash Costs of $4.16 per ounce of silver on a by-product basis

To date, the La Parrilla resource development has exceeded management's expectations due to the continued success of the Company's current drill program.

The Company's exploration and development efforts have seen exceptional results in upgrading Measured and Indicated Resources to Proven and Probable Reserves. This positive development has resulted in the life of mine (LOM) being extended to fourteen years from the previously disclosed LOM of two years in the 2008 Technical Report.

This new NI 43-101 Technical Report only considers exploration and development work completed up to the cut- off date of June 30th, 2011. The new Reserve / Resource estimates as at cut-off consist of 37.1 million ounces of silver equivalent in Proven and Probable Reserves, which represents a significant increase of 607% percent over previously reported estimates; 8.1 million ounces of silver equivalent in Measured and Indicated Resources, representing a decrease of 74% from the 2008 estimates; plus 61.2 million ounces contained in Inferred Resources representing a 16% increase from the previous estimate. It should also be noted that this significant increase in Reserves comes after continuous mining and production since the previous NI 43-101 released over three years ago which demonstrates not only the Company's ability to identify and process undefined Reserves but the potential of this prolific region of Durango.

Keith Neumeyer, CEO and President of First Majestic Silver, states: "This new Reserve / Resource estimate validates our decision to invest over $40 million to increase the capacity of this operation to 2,000 tpd from the previously announced 1,600 tpd. We are extremely pleased with La Parrilla's results and look forward to the increases in production coming in the next few quarters and the release of updated NI 43-101's on the Company's remaining four assets."

First Majestic Silver Corp.: Mühlenkapazität bei La Parrilla erreicht 2.000 tpd nach positiver vorläufiger Machbarkeitsstudie gemäß NI 43-101
13.09.2011 | 14:23 Uhr | IRW-Press
First Majestic Silver Corp. (NYSE: AG; TSX: FR) („First Majestic“ oder das „Unternehmen“) freut sich, ein Update bezüglich seiner Aktivitäten bei der Silbermine La Parrilla in Mexiko und einer neuen Ressource/Reserve gemäß NI 43-101 bekannt zu geben.


GEMELDETE HIGHLIGHTS

• Die Silberäquivalentreserven steigen um 607 % auf 37,1 Mio. Unzen.

• Die gemessenen und angezeigten Silberäquivalentressourcen gingen um 74 % auf 8,1 Mio. Unzen zurück, da ein Großteil zu Reserven hochgestuft wurde.

• Die abgeleiteten Silberäquivalentressourcen stiegen um 16 % auf 61,2 Mio. Unzen.

• Die Mühle erreicht bis 31. Dezember 2011 dank Doppelverarbeitung eine Kapazität von 2.000 Tonnen pro Tag (1.000 tpd Flotation; 1.000 tpd Cyanidation).

• Die gesamte Produktion wird auf über 3 Mio. Unzen reines Silber pro Jahr sowie auf etwa 6,0 Mio. Pfund Blei und 4,8 Mio. Pfund Zink während der Lebensdauer der Mine geschätzt.

• Die Lebensdauer der Mine steigt von 2 auf 14 Jahre.

• Der Kapitalwert nach Steuerabzug beläuft sich bei einer Ermäßigung von 5 % auf 78,6 Mio. US$; die interne Zinsrate beträgt bei einem Silberpreis von 23,85 $ 40 %.

• Die Investitionskosten belaufen sich auf einer Nebenproduktbasis auf 4,16 $ pro Unze Silber.

Die Ressourcenerschließung bei La Parrilla hat die Erwartungen des Managements aufgrund des anhaltenden Erfolgs des aktuellen Bohrprogramms des Unternehmens bislang übertroffen. Die Explorations- und Erschließungsarbeiten des Unternehmens waren äußerst erfolgreich und führten zur Hochstufung von gemessenen und angezeigten Ressourcen zu geprüften und wahrscheinlichen Reserven. Diese positive Entwicklung führte dazu, dass die Lebensdauer der Mine von ursprünglich 2 (gemäß dem „technischen Bericht“ aus dem Jahr 2008) auf 14 Jahre erweitert wurde.

Dieser neue „technische Bericht“ gemäß NI 43-101 berücksichtigt nur Explorations- und Erschließungsarbeiten, die bis zum Stichtag (30. Juni 2011) abgeschlossen wurden. Die neue Reserven-/Ressourcenschätzungen beinhalten zum Stichtag 37,1 Millionen Unzen Silberäquivalent in der geprüften und wahrscheinlichen Reservenkategorie – im Vergleich zu früheren Schätzungen eine beträchtliche Steigerung von 607 % –, 8,1 Millionen Unzen Silberäquivalent in der gemessenen und angezeigten Silberkategorie – im Vergleich zu den Schätzungen von 2008 ein Rückgang um 74 % – sowie 61,2 Millionen Unzen in der abgeleiteten Ressourcenkategorie – im Vergleich zur früheren Schätzung eine Steigerung um 16 %. Es muss darauf hingewiesen werden, dass diese beträchtliche Steigerung der Reserven auf kontinuierliche Bergbau- und Produktionsarbeiten seit der letzten Veröffentlichung gemäß NI 43-101 vor über drei Jahren zurückzuführen ist, was nicht nur die Fähigkeit des Unternehmens, undefinierte Reserven zu identifizieren und zu verarbeiten, sondern auch das Potenzial der viel versprechenden Region Durango unter Beweis stellt.

Keith Neumeyer, CEO und President von First Majestic Silver, sagte: „Diese neue Reserven-/Ressourcenschätzung rechtfertigt unsere Entscheidung, über 40 Millionen $ in die Steigerung der Kapazität dieses Betriebs von den zuvor gemeldeten 1.600 auf 2.000 tpd zu investieren. Wir sind mit den Ergebnissen von La Parrilla sehr zufrieden und freuen uns bereits auf die Produktionssteigerung in den nächsten Quartalen sowie auf die aktualisierten Veröffentlichungen gemäß NI 43-101 bezüglich der restlichen vier Aktiva des Unternehmens.“

Die folgende tabellarische Zusammenfassung wurde dem vollständigen „technischen Bericht“ gemäß NI 43-101 der Silbermine La Parrilla entnommen, der von Pincock Allan & Holt aus Lakewood (Colorado) („PAH“) erstellt wurde. Aktionäre und Interessierte können diesen positiven Bericht auf SEDAR (www.sedar.com) sowie auf der Website des Unternehmens unter www.firstmajestic.com nachlesen.

Wie bereits zuvor gemeldet, gab das Unternehmen die Entscheidung bekannt, den Betrieb La Parrilla von 850 auf 1.600 tpd zu erweitern. Dieses Bauprojekt begann im Dezember 2010 und geht sehr gut voran. Dieser neue „technische Bericht“ verfolgte mehrere Ziele: 1) die Aktualisierung der Reserven- und Ressourcenschätzung, 2) die Bestätigung der Wirtschaftlichkeit eines Betriebs mit 2.000 tpd und 3) die Erstellung des Budgets für den Rest des Jahres 2011 und des gesamten Jahres 2012, einschließlich der Hochstufung der Untertageerrichtung eines neuen Schachtes sowie der Installation eines Untertagebahnsystems. Dieser Bericht beinhaltet nur jene Arbeiten, die zwischen Januar 2010 und Juni 2011 durchgeführt wurden: 37 Diamantbohrlöcher auf 6.373 Metern und 3.080 Meter an Untertageminenerschließung. Zurzeit sind fünf Bohrgeräte bei La Parrilla im Einsatz. Für den Rest des Jahres 2011 sowie für 2012 sind insgesamt 20.000 Meter an Bohrungen geplant, womit die intensiven Investitionen bei La Parrilla fortgesetzt werden. Seit 30. Juni wurden weitere neun Bohrlöcher auf 3.334 Metern gebohrt. Der Schwerpunkt dieses erweiterten Explorationsprogramms wird auf den Minen Quebradillas, Vacas, San Marcos und La Blanca sowie auf den Gebieten Cerro Santiago, San Nicolás und Sacramento liegen. Die ersten regionalen Explorationen werden auf diesem 69.451 Hektar großen Konzessionsgebiet durchgeführt werden.


Aktuelles Erweiterungsprogramm

Das aktuelle Mühlenerweiterungsprogramm auf 2.000 tpd, die voraussichtlich bis Jahresende erreicht werden, beinhaltet auch die beträchtliche Hochstufung und Zusammenlegung unterschiedlicher Minenbetriebe bei La Parrilla. La Parrilla ist ein Komplex, der aus fünf Minen besteht, die sich in der Nähe der Mühle befinden. Eine wichtige Komponente der Minenplanung ist die Zusammenlegung sämtlicher Minenbetriebe durch die Errichtung eines großen Schachtes sowie durch den Anschluss aller Minen an ein Untertagebahnsystem. Die Schachterrichtung wird bei der nächsten Mühle bei Rosario auf Ebene 11 erfolgen. Nach dem Abschluss werden sämtliche Untertagebergbaugebiete angeschlossen und der Erztransport wird über Untertagezüge erfolgen, die das Erz zu einem neuen Schacht transportieren werden, der zurzeit errichtet wird. Das Erzbeförderungssystem wird schließlich unter den Minengebieten San Marcos, Quebradillas und Vacas sowie unter den Gebieten Rosa-Rosarios und La Blanca-San José erweitert werden. Die wesentlichen Vorteile der Zusammenlegung aller Untertagebetriebe sind ein Hauptförderschacht, der die Effizienz beträchtlich steigern wird, sowie positive Auswirkungen auf die Kosten.

Basierend auf den neuen aktuellen Reserven für La Parrilla sowie auf der wirtschaftlichen Bewertung wurde ein Produktionsplan für die gesamte Lebensdauer der Mine erstellt. Dieser neue „technische Bericht“ gemäß NI 43-101 definiert die vorläufige Machbarkeitsstudie für den geplanten Betrieb, der – basierend auf einer täglichen Produktionsrate von 2.000 Tonnen – von einer Lebensdauer der Mine von zwei Jahren bis zum Jahr 2024 erweitert werden wird. Die Reserven der niedriggradigen Tagebauoxide sollen bis 2018 abgebaut werden. Das Explorationsprogramm ist mit 3,0 Millionen $ pro Jahr sowie mit weiteren 6,6 Millionen für das restliche Jahr 2011 und für 2012 budgetiert. Angesichts des hervorragenden Potenzials in der Nähe der aktuellen Bergbaubetriebe und innerhalb des Bergbaugebiets La Parrilla ist Pincock Allan & Holt der Auffassung, dass bedeutsame Mineralressourcen gefunden und rasch erschlossen werden können. Weitere Ressourcen werden natürlich zu einer längeren Lebensdauer der Mine führen. Untertageminen, die der Mine La Parrilla ähnlich sind, beherbergen im Allgemeinen Reserven für drei bis fünf Jahre. Zwischen 2004 und 2011 ersetzte das Unternehmen sämtliche abgebauten Reserven und steigerte außerdem die Reserven und die Lebensdauer der Mine.

Die geschätzten Investitionskosten für diese Erweiterung, die im Dezember 2010 begonnen hat und bis Ende 2012 abgeschlossen werden soll, werden auf 67,5 Millionen $ geschätzt. Das gesamte Kapitel beläuft sich während der Lebensdauer der Mine (14 Jahre) auf etwa 169,5 Millionen $ und beinhaltet die neue Doppelverarbeitungsmühle mit einer Kapazität von 2.000 tpd, die Kosten für neues Minen- und Anlagen-Equipment, die Minenerschließung für Tagebau- und Untertagebetriebe sowie die laufenden Explorationen, die Erweiterung der Berge und das erforderliche Kapital. Die daraus resultierende interne Zinsrate liegt unter Anwendung eines Silberpreises von 23,85 US$ pro Unze bei soliden 40 %.

Die unabhängigen „qualifizierten Personen“ gemäß National Instrument 43-101 für das Unternehmen, die den Inhalt dieser Pressemitteilung überprüften und den jüngsten qualifizierenden Bericht verfassten, sind Leonel López, C.P.G., P.G., und Richard Addison, P.E., Principal Process Engineer von Pincock Allen & Holt, die Mitarbeiter von PAH und vom Unternehmen unabhängig sind.

First Majestic ist ein Silberproduktionsunternehmen, dessen Hauptaugenmerk auf die Silberproduktion in Mexiko gerichtet ist und das seinen Geschäftsplan intensiv verfolgt, um durch die Erschließung seiner bestehenden Mineralkonzessionen sowie durch den Erwerb zusätzlicher Mineralaktiva ein führender Silberproduzent zu werden und seine Wachstumsziele zu erreichen.

First Majestic Silver Corp.: First Stage of Expansion at the La Parrilla
Processing Plant Completed

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 20, 2011) - FIRST MAJESTIC
SILVER CORP. (TSX:FR)(NYSE:AG)(FRANKFURT:FMV)(WKN: A0LHKJ) (the "Company" or
"First Majestic") is proud to announce the completion of the first stage of
expansion at the La Parrilla Silver Mine's processing plant. The new 1,000 tpd
flotation circuit has been operating since September 1, 2011 at an average
rate of 787 tpd, bringing the total mill throughput to 1,254 tpd.

As previously announced on September 13, 2011 in the La Parrilla NI 43-101
Pre-feasibility Study news release, a decision was made to expand the La
Parrilla operation to 2,000 tpd from the previous throughput of 850 tpd due to
the significant increases in Reserves. This expansion, which commenced in
December 2010, was originally planned to reach 1,600 tpd, however, is now
planned to reach 2,000 tpd by year end. This new flotation circuit is still in
the start-up phase and will be ramped up to the end of October. The flotation
circuit is planned to reach its capacity of 1,000 tpd commencing in November
bring the total throughput up to 1,425 tpd.

Meanwhile, the expansion of the cyanidation circuit is continuing well with
progress now reaching approximately 60% completion. Construction is expected
to be finished in October with start-up commencing in November. Once fully
operational, the current 425 tpd cyanidation circuit is anticipated to reach
1,000 tpd by year end.

This new dual processing plant will have a total capacity of 2,000 tpd (1,000
tpd in flotation & 1,000 tpd in cyanidation) and is anticipated to be running
at capacity by December 31, 2011. Once completed, production is estimated at
over three million ounces of pure silver, 6.0 million pounds of lead and 4.3
million pounds of zinc. The total investment to the end of 2011 is budgeted at
US$40.5 million including mine development.

This major expansion project was planned to allow for no disruption in
production during construction. Both circuits for flotation and cyanidation
continued operating during this entire process and will continue while the new
cyanidation circuit is completed. Commercial production for the flotation
circuit will be declared when operating performance reaches 70% of design
parameters for throughput and recovery. The start-up phase has been
progressing well and management anticipates commercial production for the
flotation circuit to commence on October 1, 2011.

In addition to the construction project underway to expand the plant,
preparation of the La Parrilla mining complex is also underway as defined in
the recently announced pre-feasibility study. The La Parrilla is a complex of
five mines surrounding the mill. A key component for the future of this
operation is the consolidation of all these mines by the construction of a
large shaft and connecting all the mines with an underground rail system. The
construction of the shaft commenced at Rosario which is the closest mine from
the mill and is expected to be finished by the end of 2012. Upon completion,
all underground mining areas will be connected and ore haulage will be via
underground trains. This consolidation of underground operations will
dramatically improve efficiencies and should have a positive impact on costs.

Keith Neumeyer, President & CEO, stated; "We are very pleased with the
completion of this first stage of this new expansion at La Parrilla. Our
Mexican construction team should be recognized for their hard work and
tireless efforts and should be congratulated for the completion of this first
stage that will lead to the La Parrilla operation doubling production to over
three million ounces of silver annually."

First Majestic is a producing silver company focused on silver production in
Mexico and is aggressively pursuing its business plan of becoming a senior
silver producer through the development of its existing mineral property
assets and the pursuit through acquisition of additional mineral assets which
contribute to the Company achieving its aggressive corporate growth
objectives.
