Endeavour Silver Provides Production and Cost Guidance for 2016; Conference Call at 10:00am PST Today

Bradford Cooke, Endeavour CEO, commented, “Our Guanaceví and Bolañitos mines continue to be profitable at current metal prices but the El Cubo mine continues to lose money in spite of our successful efforts to expand the operation and reduce cash operating and all-in sustaining costs three years in a row. Therefore, we plan to mine the accessible reserves this year at El Cubo and have suspended investments on exploration and mine development there until metal prices improve. That means El Cubo will see a steady decline of production through the year until it goes on care and maintenance in the fourth quarter.

Arian Silver Corp. – Placing and Directors’ Dealings

Jim Williams, Chief Executive Officer of Arian commented: “I am once again excited to be taking Arian forwards in what could be described as a new chapter. Our cash outflows have reduced significantly in recent months as head office costs have been streamlined, most notably through internal reorganisation and reduction in salaries paid, we have to date generated monthly savings of US$0.1 million. Looking at 2016, we will have a stronger balance sheet, firstly through the elimination of debt financing, and secondly with the injection of cash from this financing. The market is ripening with opportunities, which we are positioning ourselves to seize.”

IMPACT Silver celebrates 10 year Anniversary of Continuous Production at the Royal Mines of Zacualpan Silver District and reports Record Silver Production in 2015

Fred Davidson, President and CEO of IMPACT Silver, stated “Ten years of continuous production at Zacualpan is a great milestone. I congratulate all our employees and contractors, past and present, on this proud achievement. From our modest beginnings in 2006, the IMPACT team has built up the operations year by year and as a crowning achievement saw record production in 2015 of nearly one million ounces of silver. Currently we are in a tough metals market but the Zacualpan operations have weathered downturns in the past and we will continue our efforts to weather this downturn through the exceptional skills and dedication of our team to keep costs low, and we are blessed with high grade silver zones in the ground on our 100% owned land package. We will continue to focus on growth opportunities and generation of value for our shareholders in the coming next decades.”

Minera Alamos Inc.: Issues Resource Estimate for Los Verdes North Deposit and Updated Work Plan

“The mineralization at the North Deposit is very similar in metal content to that of the South Deposit. Mineralization extends surprisingly close to surface and also exhibits the same potential for high grade “starter pit” mining opportunities as are currently being evaluated for the Company’s South Deposit”, said Darren Koningen, President, Minera Alamos Inc. “The deposit may offer a superior initial route to mining operations at the Los Verdes project, potentially eliminating months of waste pre-stripping along with the associated capital costs”.

Azure Minerals Ltd. – Resource Drillout Completed at Mesa de Plata, Further Potential Identified

Azure’s Managing Director, Mr Tony Rovira said, “Our exploration is continuing and studies by our geologists and external consultants indicate that the alteration and mineralisation styles at Mesa de Plata and in nearby areas are typical of other lithocap-hosted, epithermal gold and silver deposits in Mexico and elsewhere in Latin America. This supports the Company’s belief that a large mineralising system is present here with potential to host significant precious metal deposits.”

Great Panther Silver Reports 30% Increase In Metal Production For 2015 To Record 4.16 Million Silver Equivalent Ounces

“Continued strong performance in the fourth quarter capped off a transformative year for Great Panther”, stated Robert Archer, President & CEO. “We delivered new annual records for silver, gold, and total metal production and beat our already upwardly revised guidance by about 300,000 Ag eq oz. The ongoing ramp up in production at San Ignacio, with higher gold grades, was the major factor in this year-over-year increase. In addition, Topia exceeded one million Ag eq oz for the first time. Operational efficiencies and grade control improved significantly and I would like to congratulate our entire team for a banner year. The increase in production at higher grades allowed us to lower our costs substantially such that Great Panther is well-positioned to withstand this period of depressed metal prices and take advantage of future price rises.”
