Crystallex Reports Third Quarter And Nine Months Results; Two New Mines in
Venezuela to be Developed in First Quarter 2002


Story Filed: Thursday, November 29, 2001 9:20 AM EST

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov 29, 2001 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) --
Crystallex International Corporation (Amex: KRY; Toronto) today reported
C$13,632,900 in revenue and C$11,045 in net income in the third quarter
ending September 30, 2001. This compares with third quarter 2000 revenue of
C$14,511,703 and C$1,069,800 in net income. Third quarter 2001 earnings per
fully diluted share were NIL, compared to C$0.02 in the third quarter 2000.

Third quarter 2001 gold production was 28,077 ounces, in line with the third
quarter of 2000. For the first nine months of 2001, gold production
increased 25 percent to 81,240 ounces, compared to 65,264 ounces in the
first nine months of 2000. The direct costs of production for the quarter
were US$218 per ounce and for both the quarter and first nine months of 2001
were higher than in the comparable 2000 periods due to the initiation of a
number of projects designed to increase the Company's production profile and
further improve cash flow.

"These projects are very important to the Company's growth strategy," said
Marc J. Oppenheimer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Crystallex.
"The expenses that we are incurring now will enable us to start developing
two new underground mining operations in Venezuela. We will now have three
mines operating in Venezuela in 2002.

"And equally significant," Mr. Oppenheimer added, "This will give us
operating interests in all three of Venezuela's major gold producing
regions, as a source of ore for our strategically located Revemin mill. With
the mill upgrades commencing in the fourth quarter of this year, the Revemin
mill will be adapted to process ore from all of these mines."

The Company also reported the first blast at the new Santa Teresa mine in
Uruguay in this most recent quarter. This mine contributed to Minera San
Gregorio production late in September 2001. "Our aggressive drilling
programs are expected to add to the reserves at our existing operations in
both Venezuela and Uruguay," said Mr. Oppenheimer.

Third Quarter 2001 Highlights

    - Revenue                           C$13,632,900
    - Net income                        C$11,045 or C$NIL per fully diluted
    - Operating Cash Flow               C$1,618,118 or C$0.03 per share
    - Gold production                   28,077 ounces
    - Direct cost to produce            US$218 per ounce
    - Average price per ounce realized  US$313 per ounce
    - Feasibility studies completed for Albino 1 and Charlie Richards mines
      with development of the two Venezuelan mines commencing in first
    - 10,000 metre diamond drill exploration program commenced to convert
      additional La Victoria resources to reserves
    - Next Revemin mill expansion scheduled to begin in 4th quarter 2001 and
      be completed in 1st half of 2002
    - The Company was encouraged further by recent actions of Venezuelan
      authorities regarding Cristinas
Cash flow from operating activities in the third quarter 2001 was C$1.6
million (C$0.03 per share) compared to C$4.8 million (C$0.09 per share) in
2000. Total assets increased in the 2001 third quarter to more than C$190
million compared with nearly C$166 million in the third quarter of 2000, and
shareholder's equity rose to C$134.5million, versus nearly C$107 million in
the comparable year-earlier period.

For the first nine months ended September 30, 2001, operating revenue was
C$42,231,265 compared to C$31,366,024 in the year-earlier period. Net income
for the first nine months of 2001 was C$900,824 or C$0.02 per share (fully
diluted), compared to C$2,906,595 or C$0.05 per share (fully diluted) for
the first nine months of 2000.

Uruguay: During the quarter, the San Gregorio mill processed 265,563 tonnes
of ore grading 2.03 grams per tonne, yielding 15,634 ounces of gold at a 90
percent gold recovery rate and a direct cash operating cost of US$233 per

In July and August the Company initiated pre-stripping operations on the new
Santa Teresa ore body, about one-mile west of the San Gregorio ore body. The
ore from Santa Teresa yields similar metallurgical results as the San
Gregorio ore body. Also in the third quarter, drilling near the Santa Teresa
deposit, on a new zone designated Santa Claudia, indicated mineralization
that could increase the Company's Uruguayan reserves.

Additionally, a plan to extend the sag mill pebble crushing circuit was
taken to the design stage and was being readied for construction during the
fourth quarter. This circuit is designed to boost mill throughput during
2002 by including additional resources available on the property.

Venezuela: The Revemin mill processed 93,083 tonnes of ore at a grade of
3.46 grams per tonne, recovering 12,443 ounces of gold at a 90 percent
recovery rate and a direct operating cost of US$200 per ounce. Of this
amount, 4,808 ounces came from the Tomi mine and 7,635 ounces came from La
Victoria at the Lo Increible project. During the quarter, a 10,000-metre
diamond drill program was commenced to convert more of Lo Increible's 24.1
million tonne resource averaging 3.3 g/t Au into reserves.

The Company also retained Mine Development Associates (MDA) of Reno, Nevada,
to conduct a bankable feasibility study on the Albino 1 and the Charlie
Richards underground deposits in Venezuela. The results of this study were
reported in November, 2001. According to MDA, the combined mineable reserves
of the portions of the two deposits included in the study are 435,700 tonnes
grading at 12.67 g/t Au. This includes 341,630 tonnes of underground
reserves with a diluted grade of 14.62 g/t Au. Development of these two
underground mining operations will begin in the first quarter of 2002 with
ore for processing coming first from Tomi's Charlie Richards mine in the
third quarter 2002 and then from Albino 1 in the fourth quarter 2002.

Revemin Mill: Ore from the Company's Venezuelan mines will be processed at
the Revemin mill, which the Company plans to expand from its current
capacity of 1500 tpd to 3000 tpd in two phases. The first phase of this
expansion, which will take place during 2002, will involve an upgrade of the
leach train and tailings pumping systems. This is planned to raise
production to 1800 tpd by July, 2002. The second phase, which will be based
upon the results of the Victoria diamond-drilling program, and which will
consist of an additional crushing line, an additional milling line, and
additional leach tanks. The expansion project will double production of the
current mill from 60,000 ounces per year to an estimated 120,000 ounces per

"In the third quarter we continued on track to meet our production goals,"
Mr. Oppenheimer said. "By increasing our Venezuelan production some 12
percent, we were able to offset lower production from our San Gregorio mine
as we prepared that site for continued mining activities. We anticipate that
the annualized production rate from our combined Venezuelan and Uruguayan
operations will have increased significantly by the end of 2002. With
increasing amounts of the ore processed at our Revemin mill coming from
higher grade deposits such as Albino 1 and Charlie Richards, we expect that
our costs of production should return to our previous lows."

Las Cristinas: "We have been very encouraged by recent decisions of the
Venezuelan authorities to cancel MINCA's mining rights to Las Cristinas and
to give possession of the concessions back to the Venezuelan government,"
Mr. Oppenheimer said. "These decisions should bring the issue much nearer to
a final resolution."
