Endeavour Mining produced 124,000 oz in Q1 2015 at mid-point of AISC guidance

VANCOUVER, April 9, 2015 /CNW/ - Endeavour Mining Corporation ("Endeavour" or the "Corporation") (TSX:EDV) (ASX:EVR) (OTCQX:EDVMF) announces gold production of 124,000 ounces during Q1 2015, which represents a strong start towards full year production guidance of 475,000 to 500,000 ounces.  All-in sustaining costs per ounce for Q1 2015 are estimated to be near the mid-point of the guidance range of $930 to $980.

Neil Woodyer, CEO, stated
"We are still finalizing our costs for Q1 2015, but the current AISC/oz estimate for the group is near the middle of the $930 to $980 guidance range.  Our best performance comes from the Agbaou Mine with mine-level AISC/oz estimated below $600 during Q1 2015, which compares to $621 during 2014. Our most important cost improvement is at the Tabakoto Mine with mine-level AISC/oz estimated at approximately $1,150 during Q1 2015, which compares to $1,335 during 2014. Overall, we are very pleased with the production of 124,000 ounces, the continued outstanding performance at Agbaou, and the downward AISC trend at Tabakoto as it moves toward its guidance range for the year."
