Endeavour Silver Implements Cost Reductions, Revises 2013 Financial Plan to Reflect Lower Precious Metal Prices






Endeavour Silver Corp. (TSX:EDR)(NYSE:EXK) announced today it has implemented cost reductions and revised its 2013 financial plan in response to reduced metal price expectations for the year.

Over the last two weeks, Endeavour conducted a company-wide cost review and identified cost cutting opportunities across the full spectrum of company activities, including the board of directors and management team, and from head office to the mine-sites. None of the cost reductions are expected to negatively impact the Company’s mine plan or forecasted silver production in 2013.

As a result, management has initiated cost reductions in all areas, including but not limited to:

--  deferring 20% of planned capital investments as non-essential in 2013

--  reducing non-core exploration expenditures by 25%

--  minimizing mine operating costs through workforce layoffs in both
    operations and exploration

--  down-sizing general and administrative costs with directors and
    management deferring 10% of their cash compensation and some staff



Bradford Cooke, CEO of Endeavour, stated, “Endeavour management successfully cut costs across the board through a similar market down-turn in 2008 and the Company emerged financially stronger and more profitable as a result. It pays to be prudent at times like this.”

Endeavour Silver also announced that re-commissioning of the newly rebuilt El Cubo plant and surface infrastructure is now underway ahead of schedule. While there are still many “loose ends” to be completed by year-end, most of the re-construction program is now complete and the El Cubo plant is scheduled to be up and running at capacity within the next four weeks.



About Endeavour




Endeavour is a mid-cap silver mining company focused on the growth of its silver production, reserves and resources in Mexico. Since start-up in 2004, Endeavour has posted eight consecutive years of growing silver production, reserves and resources.
