VANCOUVER, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – GOLDCORP INC. (TSX: G) (NYSE: GG)
announced that its Los Filos mine in Guerrero State, Mexico has suspended
operations following unsuccessful efforts with the Carrizalillo Ejido to reach a
negotiated settlement to renew the occupancy agreement that expired on March 31,
2014. Certain activities related to environmental safeguards and site security
will continue during the suspension.

The Company continues to hold discussions with Ejido representatives to
expeditiously resolve the situation with the goal of ensuring the long-term
sustainability of operations amid a lower gold price environment and
significantly higher Mexican tax obligations. The Los Filos mine directly
employs more than 2,600 people from the surrounding communities with an
estimated 10,000 additional jobs created as a result of the mine’s presence in
the region.

Goldcorp is one of the world’s fastest growing senior gold producers. Its
low-cost gold production is located in safe jurisdictions in the Americas and
remains 100% unhedged.
