Guanaceví is Endeavour’s first and richest silver mine, located 260 kilometres northwest of the city of Durango in the state of Durango. Access is by state highway and infrastructure includes the state power grid, local labour, supplies and services in the town of Guanaceví, and a company camp. The property covers approximately 4,100 hectares in the fifth largest historic silver mining district in Mexico. The district is characterized by low-sulphidation epithermal veins, typically thousands of metres long, up to 700 metres deep, and ranging from 1 to 10 metres thick.
Guanaceví is Endeavour’s highest grade and deepest silver mine. Since acquisition, Endeavour has discovered seven high-grade silver-gold ore bodies along a six kilometre length of the Santa Cruz vein, opened new mines, and completed plant modernization and expansion programs. Today three underground mines feed the central, 1,200 tonne-per-day plant that produces doré bars, with a total work force of about 550 employees and 350 contractors.
In 2016, the Guanaceví mine produced 2.4 million ounces of silver and 5,328 ounces of gold, totaling 2.8 million ounces of silver equivalent. Silver and gold production both fell below guidance due to lower throughput and grades, partially offset by higher recoveries.
