                           RESERVES ARE UNAFFECTED

Toronto (March 31, 2003) - AGNICO-EAGLE MINES LIMITED today reported a rock
fall in two production stopes at its LaRonde gold mine in Quebec.  The fall
of an estimated 30,000 tons occurred when a pyramid-shaped stoping sequence
was routinely being developed in order to distribute and relieve rock stress.
The fall occurred this month above Level 215 at 2,150 m (7,050 feet) below
surface.  There were no injuries and no equipment was damaged.  Underground
and mill operations have not been interrupted and reserves are unaffected.

A preliminary estimate of the incident's impact on 2003 total gold production
is a reduction of up to 20%, due mainly to the necessity to replace
higher-grade mining blocks with ore from low-grade areas of the mine.  It is
estimated that up to 10 large mining blocks on the lower level will have to
be mined later than originally planned (please see longitudinal section for
more details at HTTP://FILES.NEWSWIRE.CA/3/2030331.PDF). A more definitive
estimate of the production and cost impact will be provided with the first
quarter's results on April 23, or in any event as soon as it is available.

The fall took place on the eastern edge of the pyramid mining sequence, one
of the areas under most stress until the mining sequence is fully
established.  Once established, the stress is transferred to the sidewalls,
similar to an arch in a building.

Remedial steps are in progress.  The fallen ore has been extracted and the
void is being backfilled with cemented rock fill.  Recovery studies have
established that the mining method on four blocks needs to be revised to a
narrower width to faster establish the pyramid sequence.  This narrower
mining approach will reduce tons mined from Level 215 until the end of the
second quarter.  Wider blocks will be mined at a later date in the next
sequence.  There will be no long-term change to the mining method which has
been used at LaRonde since start up in 1988.

These falls are part of normal mining risk and have occurred on previous
occasions at Shaft #1.  Production continued then because alternative working
areas had been developed and were mined while the original areas were being
stabilized.  Development on the lower levels at LaRonde is behind schedule,
as previously announced.  This is due to a mill failure mid 2002 that stopped
production of backfill material, and due to excessive summer heat when
working conditions at depth reduced development productivity.  Consequently,
alternative areas in the lower mine levels are not yet sufficiently developed
for mining.  However, during the first quarter development crews met their
accelerated targets.

Tomorrow, April 1, the Company will be presenting at the Prudential
Securities Gold Exploration Conference in New York City.  The presentation
will start at 8:50 am ET and will be webcast at WWW.AGNICO-EAGLE.COM.

On April 24, the Company will host a meeting in Toronto as part of its
regular quarterly results conference call.  At that time it will provide a
technical update.  All those interested are invited to attend in person, by
telephone or by webcast.  The meeting venue will be included in the notice of
the conference call.

Previously we announced an investor and analyst visit to LaRonde on May 22.
This will provide the ideal setting to understand current mining conditions
as well as to see first hand the recently expanded 7,000-ton-per-day
operation.  Please register your interest with Hazel Winchester at
416-847-3717.  Space is limited, though still available.
