FIRST MAJESTIC SILVER CORP: Payment of CDN$14.85 million Received in Court Litigation

FIRST MAJESTIC SILVER CORP. (AG: NYSE; FR: TSX) (the "Company" or "First Majestic") is pleased to announce that further to its news release on April 26, 2013, the Company has received payment in the amount of CDN$14.85 million as partial payment of the judgment of US$93.84 million granted in favour of First Majestic against Hector Davila Santos ("Hector Davila") and Minerales y Minas Mexicana, S.A. de C.V. ("MMM"). Judgment was initially awarded in the amount of US$86.9 million but was subsequently increased to US$93.84 million to correct an error in the prior assessment. The monies received on June 28th were previously held in a trust account of Hector Davila's Vancouver lawyers.

The judgment by the Supreme Court of British Columbia in favour of First Majestic in this litigation against Hector Davila and MMM is being appealed by the defendants and thus a final resolution will depend on the outcome of that appeal. Until such times as all appeals by the defendants are determined, the judgment should not be regarded as final.

On June 27, 2013, the Company also received Reasons for Judgment from a Justice of the Court of Appeal for British Columbia ordering Hector Davila and MMM to post security for the remaining trial judgment in the amount of US$79 million, being the approximate difference between US$93.84 less the funds of CDN$14.85 million received or, in the alternative, to post a letter of credit in that amount within 90 days of this order, with liberty to apply for further directions on the form of security, if necessary. In the event that Hector Davila and MMM fail to comply with the order, the Company may apply for an order dismissing the appeal. Hector Davila has seven days from the date of the order in which to initiate an application to vary or discharge this order.

First Majestic is a mining company focused on silver production in México 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.

With gold, silver and Uranium stocks being out of favor one must decide if this is a problem or an opportunity. We have steadfastly refused to buy gold and silver mining stocks for the last two years and as evidenced by the HUI we feel that our decision to hold back has been vindicated. The damage done to the mining sector may not be over yet but this demise is starting to offer up some exciting opportunities in my view.

Great care will be needed in the selection process in order to generate a reasonable profit and that’s where our new venture begins. ‘Stock Trader’ has begun trading on behalf of ourselves and our much valued subscribers, all exciting stuff which we are really looking forward to, if you wish to join us then please subscribe below;
