VANCOUVER, BC - December 5, 2012 – SilverCrest Mines Inc. (the "Company") announces the grant of stock options to directors, officers, employees and consultants to purchase an aggregate of 1,760,000 common shares of the Company at an exercise price of $2.60 per share for a term of 5 years.

Any thoughts on how this will effect our SP?
