14:30 EDTEXKEndeavour Silver reports second fatal accident at mining operations in Mexico
Endeavour Silver report the death of an employee on Saturday, April 5, due to a rock fall underground at the V-Asuncion mine, part of the El Cubo mine operations in Guanajuato State, Mexico. The V-Asuncion mine was closed immediately and an internal investigation has been completed. Endeavour is now working with the Mexican authorities to facilitate their investigation of this accident. The company said, "As this is the second fatal accident at Endeavour's mining operations in Mexico in the last week, the company has decided to immediately implement a full safety retraining program at all three mines. Each mine will shut down for two days so each shift in turn can receive a two day refresher course on safety policies and practices. In addition, Endeavour will retain a group of safety specialists to review the company safety programs and implement their recommendations." The company is already ahead of its production plan for the year so the mine closures are not expected to impact production guidance, Endeavour added.

07:33 EDTEXKEndeavour Silver initiates major mine expansion at El Cubo
Endeavour Silver Corp. has initiated a major expansion of its El Cubo mine in Guanajuato state, Mexico. The company plans to ramp up mine output over the next four months from 1,550 tonnes per day, the current El Cubo plant capacity, to 2,200 tpd. The additional 650 tpd of mine production at El Cubo will come primarily from the V-Asunci mine area, which has thicker mineralized zones amenable to long hole mining, and the Santa Cecilia mine area, which has narrower but higher grade veins, and will be processed at Endeavour's Bolaitos plant, located 18 kilometres away in the same district, which has available capacity and comparable circuits to El Cubo. Production at Bolaitos will be reduced by a small amount to accommodate more processing of El Cubo ore.The main reason for the mine expansion is to drive operating costs lower and generate free cash flow at El Cubo by taking advantage of the available plant capacity at Bolaitos. As a result, El Cubo will become the company's largest mine by metal production. Endeavour received the cooperation of the miners' union at El Cubo last week in finalizing a labor contract that facilitates the mine expansion and helps establish the short- and long-term viability of the mine.
