Endeavour Silver Acquires San Fernando Property Adjacent to Milache Discovery Near Guanacevi Mine, Durango, Mexico

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov 28, 2012) - Endeavour Silver Corp. (EDR.TO)(EXK)(EJD.F) announces that it has purchased the San Fernando mineral property located about 1.5 kilometers northwest of Endeavour''s Guanacevi Mine properties in Durango State, Mexico. 

San Fernando is a small property (20 hectares) strategically located adjacent to Endeavour''s emerging new high grade silver-gold discovery on the Milache property. The property covers the upper portion of the Santa Cruz vein which hosts the Milache mineralization, and holds good potential to host any northern extensions of the Milache discovery. Exploration drilling is planned at the San Fernando property in 2013.

Endeavour also announces that its exploration drilling program at Milache continues to extend the recently discovered high grade silver-gold mineralized zone in the Santa Cruz vein to more than 300 meters (m) long by 250 m deep, still open for expansion to the north and at depth. 

The latest drilling highlights at Milache include 308 grams per tonne (gpt) silver and 1.76 gpt gold over 2.81 m true width (11.5 ounces per ton (opT) silver equivalents over 9.2 feet (ft)) in hole MCH-24 based on a silver: gold ratio of 50:1; including a very high grade interval of 1,885 gpt silver and 6.8 gpt gold over 0.19 m true width (64.9 opT silver equivalents over 0.6 ft).

Luis Castro, Endeavour''s Vice President of Exploration, commented, "Our exploration drilling continues to extend the high grade silver-gold mineralization at Milache to the north and to depth. This timely acquisition of the San Fernando mineral property will allow us to continue drilling to the north onto the San Fernando property next year."

"The high grade mineralization at Milache is turning out to be one of our best new discoveries at Guanacevi in recent years. We hope to complete an initial resource estimate at year-end, add the project to our long term mine plan and commence development of a mine access ramp in 2013."

Godfrey Walton, M.Sc., P.Geo. President and COO, is the Qualified Person who reviewed and approved this news release and supervised the drilling programs on the Milache property. A Quality Control sampling program of reference standards, blanks and duplicates has been instituted to monitor the integrity of all assay results. All samples were split at the Guanajuato 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 and other elements are determined by AA.

    Hasta la vista Microsoft: Why IBM's switch from Windows to Macs is one of its greatest decisions

    IBM says that it has saved millions of dollars by getting employees to use Apple Macs rather than Windows PCs, as Windows machines apparently cost three times more in support than Macs. Fletcher Previn, IBM's vice president of workplace as a service, is essentially the head of the conglomerate's IT department, and after years of experience in managing Windows PCs for large corporations, he decided things needed to change. In October 2015, Previn told the Jamf 2015 conference audience that 30,000 IBM employees were now using Macs, and when it came to support for employee computers, while 40% of all Windows users required someone to be sent out to fix the problem in person, which costs a lot more than a support call, in comparison, the same level of assistance was only required by 5% of Mac users. IBM's employees and contractors in North and South America, Europe, China, India, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa are using about 604,000 laptops, consisting of 442,000 Windows PCs, 90,000 Macs and 72,000 Linux PCs, and each of the operating systems have separate customer support and firmware needed.

    Elizabeth Warren takes on Wells Fargo's new management in scathing letter to bank

    The resignation of former CEO John Stumpf from Wells Fargo is "not enough" to assuage lawmakers that the company has purged itself of a culture that encouraged aggressive sales tactics and illegal activity, two senators said Wednesday. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) issued a letter Thursday to Stephen Sanger, who is the new chairman of Wells Fargo’s board of directors. “Given the scope of wrongdoing on his watch, Mr. Stumpf’s resignation is entirely appropriate,” the senators wrote in the letter. “But a resignation alone is not enough to assure proper accountability at Wells Fargo,” it said. “Instead, it raises additional questions.” They also questioned if the bank's

    Is Gold's Real Value $2,000 an ounce?

    KITCO NEWS - Gold steadies and is set to end the week higher, on track for its first weekly gain in four weeks and one expert sees the cards stacked in the metal's favor. Ken Hoffman of Bloomberg Intelligence released a report this month, which shows the current pressure in gold prices is namely driven by the looming rate hike - but those Fed concerns are just masking long-term positives for the metal. Gold was on track Friday to post its first positive weekly close in three weeks, many analysts suspect that the correction --which started with a 5% drop at the start of the month -- has run its course. December gold futures settled the day at $1,267.70 an ounce, up nearly 1.2% since Monday's open.
