  VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Nov 28 (MARKET WIRE) --
Endeavour Silver Corp. (TSX:EDR)(NYSE:EXK)(FRANKFURT:EJD) announces that
it has purchased the San Fernando mineral property located about 1.5
kilometers northwest of Endeavour's Guanacevi Mine properties in Durango
State, Mexico.

    San Fernando is a small property (20 hectares) strategically located
adjacent to Endeavour's emerging new high grade silver-gold discovery on
the Milache property. The property covers the upper portion of the Santa
Cruz vein which hosts the Milache mineralization, and holds good
potential to host any northern extensions of the Milache discovery.
Exploration drilling is planned at the San Fernando property in 2013.

    Endeavour also announces that its exploration drilling program at Milache
continues to extend the recently discovered high grade silver-gold
mineralized zone in the Santa Cruz vein to more than 300 meters (m) long
by 250 m deep, still open for expansion to the north and at depth. 

    The latest drilling highlights at Milache include 308 grams per tonne
(gpt) silver and 1.76 gpt gold over 2.81 m true width (11.5 ounces per
ton (opT) silver equivalents over 9.2 feet (ft)) in hole MCH-24 based on
a silver: gold ratio of 50:1; including a very high grade interval of
1,885 gpt silver and 6.8 gpt gold over 0.19 m true width (64.9 opT silver
equivalents over 0.6 ft).

    Luis Castro, Endeavour's Vice President of Exploration, commented, "Our
exploration drilling continues to extend the high grade silver-gold
mineralization at Milache to the north and to depth. This timely
acquisition of the San Fernando mineral property will allow us to
continue drilling to the north onto the San Fernando property next year."

    "The high grade mineralization at Milache is turning out to be one of our
best new discoveries at Guanacevi in recent years. We hope to complete an
initial resource estimate at year-end, add the project to our long term
mine plan and commence development of a mine access ramp in 2013."

    Godfrey Walton, M.Sc., P.Geo. President and COO, is the Qualified Person
who reviewed and approved this news release and supervised the drilling
programs on the Milache property. A Quality Control sampling program of
reference standards, blanks and duplicates has been instituted to monitor
the integrity of all assay results. All samples were split at the
Guanajuato field office and shipped to ALS-Chemex Labs, where they are
dried, crushed, split and 50 gram pulp samples are prepared for analysis.
Gold and silver are determined by fire assay with an atomic absorption
(AA) finish and other elements are determined by AA.
