TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 23, 2013) - McEwen Mining Inc. (NYSE:MUX)(TSX:MUX) announces that Rob McEwen, Chairman and Chief Owner, has exchanged 42,103,285 shares of McEwen Mining - Minera Andes Acquisition Corp. ("MAQ") into an equal number of McEwen Mining common shares. MAQ Exchangeable shares are exchangeable on a 1-for-1 basis into common stock of McEwen Mining and were issued in connection with US Gold Corporation's (now McEwen Mining) acquisition of Minera Andes Inc. which was completed in early 2012. Mr. McEwen's 25% ownership interest in McEwen Mining does not change as a result of this transaction.

We are reporting this news to avoid any confusion or misconception that Mr. McEwen either purchased or sold shares in the market. Mr. McEwen is completing this transaction for tax purposes. Please consult your tax or financial advisor to determine whether now is the right time to exchange your MAQ shares. McEwen Mining believes that eliminating a class of exchangeable shares would allow for cost savings and less market confusion about our capital structure.
