Endeavour Mining Mails Information Circular in Connection with Special Meeting and Files Ity Mine Technical Report

Vancouver, October 7, 2015 - Endeavour Mining Corporation ('Endeavour' or the 'Corporation') (TSX:EDV) (ASX:EVR) (OTCQX:EDVMF) announces it has mailed a notice of meeting and management information circular to its shareholders of record as of October 1, 2015 in preparation for its special meeting of shareholders to be held on November 5, 2015. Further to its September 21, 2015 news release, Endeavour has also filed on SEDAR the NI43-101 independent technical report entitled 'Technical Report for the Ity Gold Mine, Côte d'Ivoire, West Africa' with an effective date of July 31, 2015.

On September 21, 2015, Endeavour announced it had entered into a long-term strategic partnership with La Mancha Holding S.àr.l., a privately-held gold investment company held by the Sawiris family group. This partnership builds on our respective successes in Côte d'Ivoire to secure Endeavour's platform for growth in Africa.

The highlights of the partnership include:

  • Endeavour will acquire La Mancha's 55% interest in Société des Mines d'Ity S.A. (SMI), which operates the Ity Gold Mine in Côte d'Ivoire, plus various regional exploration properties
  • La Mancha will contribute US$63 million of cash to Endeavour (including an estimated $25 million of attributable cash held in SMI)
  • La Mancha will be issued new Endeavour shares representing 30% of the enlarged share capital, and will nominate Naguib Sawiris, Chairman of the La Mancha Advisory Board, and Sébastien de Montessus, CEO of the La Mancha Group, to expand Endeavour's 7 member board to 9
  • La Mancha has expressed an in-principle commitment to fund up to US$75 million of Endeavour's future organic and/or corporate growth opportunities
  • La Mancha has agreed to a two year standstill at the 30% level, and will have the right to maintain this ownership level in Endeavour by participating in new equity offerings, thereby demonstrating the long-term nature of the partnership
The Endeavour Board of Directors recommends that shareholders vote IN FAVOUR of the Share Issuance Resolution. Shareholders who require assistance with voting or have questions regarding the meeting may contact our proxy solicitation agent, Laurel Hill Advisory Group, at 1-877-452-7184 Toll Free in North America, or call collect outside North America at 416-304-0211, or by email at [email protected].

Filing of Technical Report
The independent Technical Report for the Ity Gold Mine has been filed in accordance with NI 43-101. This Technical Report includes the tabulation of the current mineral resources, mineral reserves and associated mine plans as developed by La Mancha's independent consultants and management team.

The Ity Gold Mine is located 480 km northwest of Abidjan with open pit mining and heap leaching ore treatment. As of July 31, 2015, the heap leach Proven and Probable Reserves totalled 2.3 million tonnes at 2.4 g/t containing 173koz. The Ity Gold Mine produced 81koz of gold during 2014 and 45koz ounces during the first half of 2015. Based on the current 2P reserves, La Mancha has established a mine plan extending to the end of 2017.

The Ity Mine has Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources of 2.9 million ounces as at July 31, 2015 (see Appendix A for classification of the resources). The Ity CIL Project envisions construction of a 2.0 to 3.0 Mpta CIL plant at the Ity Mine to expand the annual production to +120koz/yr and significantly extend mine life. While these studies progress, Endeavour's management team will be focusing on maintaining the current Ity Heap Leach Operation as an on-going contributor to group cash flow. As discussed in the Technical Report, additional resources (some of which are currently slated for the Ity CIL Project) could be defined and potentially provide additional feed for the Heap Leach Operation to extend its life by 2 to 3 more years (e.g. 2019 to 2020). Endeavour is developing a work program that will focus on these resource targets.
