Endeavour Silver Drilling Continues to Intersect High Grade Silver-Gold Mineralization in La Luz-Asuncion Vein at Bolanitos Mine, Guanajuato

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- Endeavour Silver Corp. (NYSE:EXK)(TSX:EDR) announces that exploration drilling at the Bolanitos mine in Guanajuato State, Mexico continues to intersect high grade, silver-gold mineralization in the Asuncion area of the La Luz vein system (L-Asuncion) forming three discrete zones over an 800 metre length, still open to some extent at depth and towards surface.

Drilling highlights from the L-Asuncion area in 2014 include 329 grams per tonne (gpt) silver and 4.75 gpt gold over 4.60 metres (m) true width, or 17.9 ounces per ton (opT) silver equivalents over 15.1 feet (ft), in hole LZ17-4, including 1,530 gpt silver and 9.4 gpt gold over 0.13 m true width, or 61.1 opT silver equivalents over 0.5 ft.

At a 200 gpt/m cutoff, these two mineralized zones collectively measure more than 400 m long by 250 m deep by up to 5 metres thick (see L-Asuncion longitudinal section here). Silver equivalents are calculated at a ratio of 60: 1 silver: gold. Drilling highlights were as follows:

In 2007, Endeavour identified the L-Asuncion area as one of several highly prospective target areas for the discovery of new high grade silver-gold mineralization at Bolanitos based on old maps showing substantial mine fill of economic grade within historic mine workings at L-Asuncion. In 2012, the Company rehabilitated the old Asuncion mine shaft and gained access to map, sample and commence production of the old mine fill from the underground mine workings.

Exploration crews subsequently discovered impressive sections of mineralized vein that remained unmined in the L-Asuncion area. Surface drilling last year confirmed the presence of mineralization over 800 metres and the exploration focus for 2014 in the L-Asuncion area is to expand and better define two of the three high grade zones while tunneling progresses in a northwest direction towards them.

Luis Castro, Vice President of Exploration, commented, "We are very encouraged by both the internal continuity and precious metal grades of these mineralized zones at L-Asuncion. They remain open to some extent both down dip and up dip and represent a future production area for us at Bolanitos. Thanks to our robust free cash flow, Endeavour currently has eleven drill rigs (seven surface and four underground) working in Mexico: two at Guanacevi, three at Bolanitos, four at El Cubo and two at the emerging new high grade discovery in the Terronera vein on our San Sebastian project in Jalisco State."

Godfrey Walton, M.Sc., P.Geo., and President and COO, is the Qualified Person who reviewed and approved this news release and supervised the drilling programs in Mexico. A Quality Control sampling program of reference standards, blanks and duplicates has been instituted to monitor the integrity of all assay results. All samples are split at the local field office and shipped to ALS-Chemex Labs, where they are dried, crushed, split and 50 gram pulp samples are prepared for analysis. Gold and silver are determined by fire assay with an atomic absorption (AA) finish.

About Endeavour - Endeavour Silver is a mid-tier silver mining company focused on growing its production, reserves and resources in Mexico. Since start-up in 2004, the Company has posted nine consecutive years of accretive growth of its silver mining operations. Endeavour's three operating silver-gold mines in Mexico combined with its strategic acquisition and exploration programs should facilitate our goal to become a premier senior silver producer.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
