    Endeavour also announces it will hold its annual meeting of shareholders
at 10:00am PDT on May 22, 2013 at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel, 900
Canada Place Way, in Vancouver, BC. The Company has fixed April 17, 2013
as the record date for determining shareholders entitled to vote at the
meeting.

    To improve corporate governance, the Board of Directors proposes to adopt
an advance notice policy which requires advance notice to the Company in
circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the Board of
Directors are made by shareholders, other than pursuant to the
requisition of a meeting or a shareholder proposal.

    Among other things, the advance notice policy fixes a deadline by which
holders of record of common shares of the Company must submit director
nominations to the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of
shareholders, and sets forth the information that a shareholder must
include in the notice to the Company. No person will be eligible for
election as a director of Endeavour Silver unless nominated in accordance
with the advance notice policy.

    In the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Company
must be provided not less than 30 days and not more than 65 days prior to
the date of the meeting, provided, however, that in the event the annual
meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 50 days after the date
on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting
was made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the
10th day following such public announcement.

    For the upcoming annual meeting of shareholders, any notice delivered to
the Company before April 22, 2013 shall be deemed to have been delivered
prior to the deadline for such notices.

    Endeavour CEO Bradford Cooke commented: "The adoption of an advance
notice policy puts in place a clear and transparent process for all
shareholders to follow if they intend to nominate directors. It also
creates a level playing field by providing adequate time for shareholders
to properly evaluate the qualifications and suitability of any proposed
alternative candidates."

    The advance notice policy is effective immediately and will be placed
before shareholders for approval at the annual meeting on May 22, 2013.
The full text of the policy is available under the Company's profile at
www.sedar.com. The advance notice policy is in effect until approved,
amended or rejected by shareholders at the meeting.

    The Company also announces that the Board of Directors has adopted a
majority voting policy for the election of directors in uncontested
elections. Under this policy, if a nominee does not receive the
affirmative vote of at least the majority of votes cast, the Director
shall promptly tender his/her resignation for consideration by the
Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee and the Board. The
Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee shall consider the
resignation and recommend to the Board the action to be taken with
respect to such offered resignation, which may include: accepting the
resignation, maintaining the Director but addressing what the Corporate
Governance and Nominating Committee believes to be the underlying cause
of the withheld votes, resolving that the Director will not be
re-nominated in the future for election, or rejecting the resignation and
explaining the basis for such determination.

    The Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee in making its
recommendation, and the Board in making its decision, may consider any
factors or other information they consider appropriate and relevant.
