Vancouver, Canada – June 6, 2017 – Endeavour Silver Corp. (TSX: EDR, NYSE: EXK) announces it has acquired 100% interests in two small but prospective mineral property groups, Calicanto and Veta Grande, located in the historic silver mining district of Zacatecas in Zacatecas state, Mexico.

All of the properties host old mines and/or known silver-gold veins that were underexplored by modern methods and are being acquired for their near-term mine exploration and development potential, given their proximity to Endeavour’s El Compas Mine and La Plata plant, also located in the Zacatecas district.
Bradford Cooke, Endeavour CEO and Director, stated: “We are very happy to add these new properties to our exploration portfolio in Zacatecas. The two transactions confirm there are good opportunities to consolidate a larger mineral land position in Zacatecas, one of the largest historic silver mining districts in Mexico. Drilling is now underway at the Calicanto properties and we expect to permit and drill the Veta Grande properties later this year.”
