Endeavour Silver Corp. (TSX: EDR, NYSE: EXK) (" Endeavour ") announces that it has now closed the sale of the El Cubo Mine in Guanajuato, Mexico to VanGold Mining Corp. (" VanGold ") for $15 million in cash and share payments plus up to $3 million in future contingent payments (all dollar amounts in US dollars unless otherwise noted) (the " Transaction ").

VanGold paid $15,000,000 to Endeavour as follows:

  • $7.5 million cash on closing.
  • $5.0 million (C$6,399,317.40) in VanGold common shares (" VanGold Shares ") on closing, priced at $0.2344 (C$0.30) per VanGold Share for a total of 21,331,058 VanGold Shares (" Consideration Shares ") representing approximately 10.9% of the issued and outstanding VanGold Shares.
  • $2.5 million promissory note due 12 months from closing.

VanGold has also agreed to pay Endeavour up to an additional $3,000,000 in contingent payments based on the following:

  • $1.0 million upon VanGold producing 3,000,000 silver equivalent ounces from the El Cubo mill, derived from either the El Cubo or El Pinguico project, $500,000 of which may, in VanGold's discretion, be paid in VanGold Shares.
  • $1.0 million if the price of gold closes at or above $2,000 per ounce for 20 consecutive trading days within two years after the closing date of the Transaction.
  • A further $1.0 million if the price of gold closes at or above $2,200 per ounce for 20 consecutive trading days within three years after the closing date of the Transaction.

Bradford Cooke, Endeavour CEO and Director, commented, "We are pleased to close this transaction and I congratulate VanGold for helping make it a win-win deal for both companies. They are in the best position to create more value out of the El Cubo assets given their emerging El Pinguico project located very close to El Cubo, and we now become the largest shareholder of VanGold. I look forward to supporting VanGold in their efforts to become the next junior silver-gold producer in Mexico!"

On the closing of the Transaction, Endeavour acquired 21,331,058 VanGold Shares. Based on 194,931,838 VanGold Shares outstanding as of the closing date of the Transaction, the Consideration Shares represent 10.9% of the outstanding VanGold Shares on an undiluted basis. Prior to the closing date of the Transaction, Endeavour did not own any VanGold Shares or other securities of VanGold.   Endeavour has agreed to abstain from voting its shares of VanGold, other than as recommended by VanGold's management, for a period of 2 years, and to a 12-month restriction on the resale of any VanGold shares acquired in this Transaction.

Endeavour acquired its interest in the Consideration Shares for long term investment purposes and will continue to monitor the business, prospects, financial condition and potential capital requirements of VanGold. Endeavour may acquire additional securities of VanGold including on the open market or through private acquisitions or sell securities of VanGold including on the open market or through private dispositions in the future depending on market conditions, reformulation of plans and/or other relevant factors.

Pan American Silver Reports Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources as at June 30, 2022

Pan American Silver Corp. (NASDAQ: PAAS) (TSX: PAAS) ("Pan American", or the "Company") today reported its estimated mineral reserves and mineral resources as at June 30, 2022 . Proven and probable mineral reserves are estimated to contain approximately 514.9 million ounces of silver and 3.6 million ounces of gold. Measured and indicated mineral resources (excluding proven and probable reserves) are estimated to total approximately 838.6 million ounces of silver and 8.1 million ounces of gold. In addition, inferred mineral resources total 507.7 million ounces of silver and 5.7 million ounces of gold.

"We successfully replaced 11 million ounces of silver mineral reserves and 96.1 thousand ounces of gold mineral reserves at our producing mines over the past 12 months. Most of our exploration drilling was focused on near-mine exploration at La Colorada , Huaron and Timmins and produced positive results. Most notably, 7.3 million ounces of silver mineral reserves were added at La Colorada , more than replacing the 6.7 million ounces mined," said Christopher Emerson , Pan American's Vice President of Business Development and Geology. "Gold and silver mineral reserves were impacted by the reclassification of mineral reserves to mineral resources at the Dolores underground mine and considering the localized overestimation of the contained ounces within Phase 9B , which offset reserve gains at La Arena, Shahuindo and Timmins ."
