SILVER STANDARD ANNOUNCES PROPOSED NAME CHANGE TO SSR MINING

VANCOUVER, B.C. -- Silver Standard Resources Inc. (NASDAQ: SSRI) (TSX: SSO) (“Silver Standard” or the “Company”) announces that the Board of Directors (the “Board”) has recommended changing the Company’s name to SSR Mining Inc. (“SSR Mining”). The Company will seek shareholder approval for the proposed name change at its annual and special meeting of shareholders to be held May 4, 2017.

Paul Benson, President and CEO said, “With gold representing approximately 70% of our revenue, the current name does not accurately reflect our business. We have evolved from a silver-focused producer to an intermediate precious metals producer with three mines in the Americas. The proposed name, which includes the initials of our existing name, is a natural evolution in our more than 70-year history. While we are recommending a change to our name, our relentless focus on creating shareholder value remains.”

If the name change to SSR Mining is approved by shareholders, the Company plans to change its Nasdaq Global Market and Toronto Stock Exchange ticker symbols to “SSRM”. The timing of the name change, ticker symbol change and corporate re-branding will be announced at a later date. Subject to the name change, the Company’s web domain name will change to www.ssrmining.com.
