Item 2.  Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.


         The  Current  Report  on  Form  8-K  filed  by  Coeur  d'Alene  Mines
Corporation  (the  "Company")  on January  31, 1996 (the "Form 8-K") is hereby
amended to relocate the  disclosure  set forth under Item 2 of the Form 8-K to
appear under Item 5 ("Other  Events") of the Form 8- K. The relocation of such
disclosure is being made in view of the fact that the Company's acquisition of
shares and an option to acquire  shares of Orion  Resources  NL, an Australian
gold mining  company,  ("Orion")  does not  constitute  the  acquisition  of a
"significant  amount of assets"  within the meaning of Instruction 4 to Item 2
of Form 8-K. In that regard, the amount paid by the Company in connection with
the acquisition  did not exceed 10% of the Company's  total assets,  and Orion
does not  constitute  a  "significant  business"  within  the  meaning of Rule
11-01(b) of  Regulation  S-X because the Company  does not have a  controlling
influence over Orion for purposes of defining the term "subsidiary" under Rule
1-02(x) of Regulation S-X.


Item 5.  Other Events.

         The  disclosures set forth under this Item of the Form 8-K are hereby
expanded to include the disclosures earlier set forth under Item 2 of the Form
8-K, as discussed above.


Item 7.  Financial Statements, Pro Forma Financial Information
         and Exhibits

         (a)   Financial Statements of Businesses Acquired

                  The Company hereby eliminates the statements made under Item
7(a) of the Form 8-K in view of the fact that the Company's  acquisition of an
interest in Orion did not  constitute  a business  acquisition  required to be
described in answer to Item 2 above.

         (b)   Pro Forma Financial Information

                  The Company hereby eliminates the statements made under Item
7(b) of the Form 8-K in view of the fact that the Company's  acquisition of an
interest in Orion did not constitute a transaction required to be described in
answer to Item 2.
