George Town, February 29th, 2016
- Endeavour Mining (TSX:EDV) (OTCQX:EDVMF) is pleased to announce that it has
received US$25.3 million upon simultaneously signing and closing the sale
transaction of its non-core Youga Mine to MNG Gold ("MNG").

The total cash consideration is comprised of US$20 million for the asset and
US$5.3 million for the cash-on-hand. In addition, Endeavour has retained a
1.8% Net Smelter Royalty ("NSR") on production realized beyond the current
reserve from the property sold, and with the inclusion of a buyback
provision.

Neil Woodyer, CEO of Endeavour, stated: "This transaction provides upfront
value for Youga's remaining 2 year mine life and gives us greater financial
flexibility to pursue growth opportunities. It is in line with our strategic
objective of actively managing our portfolio to improve its overall quality.

Since MNG's nearby Balogo high-grade deposit will give a second life to the
Youga operation, we firmly believe that this transaction is in the best
interest of all stakeholders, including our employees, the government, and
the local population."

About the Youga Mine

The Youga Gold Mine is located approximately 180 km southeast of Ouagadougou.
Endeavour holds a 90% interest in Burkina Mining Company ("BMC") which has
been granted the rights to exploit the Youga Gold Deposit. The remaining 10%
of BMC is held by the Government of Burkina Faso.

Youga is an open pit mining operation with a 1mtpa gravity/CIL processing
facility. It has recovered a total of over 0.6 million ounces of gold since
operations commenced in 2008. Youga employs approximately 665 workers in
total, including full time Endeavour employees and contractors.

As at December 31, 2015, Measured and Indicated mineral resources (inclusive
of reserves) were 17.8 million tonnes at 1.4 g/t gold containing 0.8 million
ounces and the Proven and Probable mineral reserves were 2.5 million tonnes
at 1.6 g/t gold containing 0.1 million ounces[1].

In 2015, Youga produced 68,407 ounces of gold. Production in 2016 is forecast
to be 40,000 to 45,000 ounces at a mine-level AISC cost of $980 to $1,030 per
ounce.
