Endeavour Silver Provides 2018 Production and Cost Guidance, Targeting 20% Increase in Production to 5.8-6.4 Million oz Silver and 58-64,000 oz Gold for 10.2-11.2 Million oz Silver Equivalent


Vancouver, Canada – January 25, 2018 – Endeavour Silver Corp. (TSX: EDR, NYSE: EXK) issued today the 2018 production and cost guidance for its three operating mines and one development project in Mexico: the Guanaceví mine in Durango state, the Bolañitos and El Cubo mines in Guanajuato state, and the El Compas mine, now under development in Zacatecas state.

In 2018, silver equivalent production is expected to increase by 20% compared to 2017.  Endeavour forecasts higher silver and gold production at all three existing mines as well as initial production from the new fourth mine at El Compas by the end of March, with commercial production scheduled for the end of July.

With the higher forecast production, cash costs and all-in sustaining costs are expected to decline in 2018 compared to 2017.  The 2018 capital budget will increase from 2017 due to the development of the new El Compas mine, and two new high grade orebodies at Guanacevi, whereas the exploration budget will decrease as the focus shifts towards more development activities this year.
