We initially bought Endeavour Silver Corporation (EXK) for $3.97 on the 7th December 2007 and since have built a position with the average price that we have paid for Endeavour Silver being $4.10 per share and as we can see from the above chart this silver producer closed yesterday at $9.81 so steady progress is being made.

This week Endeavour released the following second quarter update which we start with a comment from Godfrey Walton, President and COO:

"Endeavour delivered another quarter of growing silver and gold production in Q2, 2011. Production was up slightly year on year and down slightly quarter on quarter but well within our guidance for 2011. We planned for a relatively flat quarter of production due to our operations teams focusing on the capital expansion programs."

"Production should start rising again once the Guanajuato plant expansion from 600 tonnes per day (tpd) to 1,000 tpd is completed in Q3, 2011. We are actually installing an additional 1,000 tpd circuit at the plant, to be commissioned later this quarter, at which time the current 600 tpd circuit will be idled, leaving the door open for further production expansion to 1,600 tpd once our reserves and resources have also grown."

Continued growth of silver and gold production in the Second Quarter, 2011 from the Company's two operating silver mines in Mexico, the Guanacevi Mine in Durango State and the Guanajuato Mine in Guanajuato State. 


Production Highlights of Second Quarter, 2011 (Compared to Second Quarter, 2010)

Silver production up 3% to 850,476 oz
Gold production up 8% to 4,831 oz
Silver and equivalents production up 4% to 1.04 million oz (at a 40:1 silver:gold ratio)

Realized silver price up 102% to US$37.65 per oz sold
