OUR STRATEGY

Endeavour is a West African gold producer focused on developing and operating low-cost, long-life mines.

With the successful ramp-up of the Houndé Project, and the development of its Ity CIL and Kalana projects, Endeavour expects to produce more than 800,000 ounces of gold per year at below $800/oz AISC by 2019. Its exploration program aims to discover 10-15Moz of gold over the next 5 years, which represents more than twice the reserve depletion.
