Endeavour Silver Announces New Appointment to Management Team;
2012 Financial Results to be Released on Tuesday March 12, 2013

Vancouver, Canada – March 5, 2013 - Endeavour Silver Corp. (NYSE: EXK, TSX: EDR, Frankfurt: EJD) is pleased to announce the appointment of Meghan Brown as Director of Investor Relations, effective immediately.

Ms. Brown has over 20 years of experience in corporate communications and investor relations in the resource sector and comes to Endeavour from a Vancouver-based mineral exploration company. She started her career as a financial analyst with Suncor Energy and has worked for Transcanada Pipeline, Placer Dome, Ventana Gold, as well as several publicly traded mineral exploration and development companies with assets in Colombia, Peru, China, Africa, Canada and the U.S.

Ms. Brown is President of the BC chapter of the Canadian Investor Relations Institute and a member of the Institute of Corporate Directors. She holds a BA from the University of British Columbia and an MBA from Queen’s University, and has completed the Canadian Securities Course and the Institute of Corporate Directors’ Governance Essentials Program for Directors of Not-for-Profit Organizations.

Bradford Cooke, CEO, commented, "We welcome Meghan to the Endeavour management team. Her knowledge of the mining industry and extensive investor relations experience and contacts will be a tremendous asset to the company as we execute our business plans. We look forward to Meghan playing a key role in the communication of our current operations and growth initiatives to broaden our shareholder base and add shareholder value.”

Mr. Cooke added, “We rarely comment on the state of the market but the recent sharp decline in Endeavour’s share price begs a response.  Management’s view is that the current share price is not at all reflective of the inherent value of the Company’s assets.   Endeavour is well on track to deliver the capital reconstruction program at El Cubo on time and on budget; we are progressing as planned with the operational turn around at El Cubo; Bolanitos is currently producing significantly above rated capacity; and we expect to enter into smelter contracts to sell the extra concentrates being produced at Bolanitos shortly.  Meghan and I welcome all shareholder enquiries at this difficult time in the markets.”
