Mr. Rodriguez has served as a Director of Endeavour since September 2013.
The Board of Directors said in a statement that it thanks Mr. Rodriguez for his advice and contributions over the past several years as the Company has grown, and wishes him success for the future.
The Board said it will now be composed of seven members, including Chairman Michael E. Beckett, and Ian Cockerill, Frank Giustra, Ian Henderson, Wayne McManus, and Naguib Sawiris as Non-executive Directors; and Sébastien de Montessus as Executive Director and CEO.
ration Endeavour Mining is a TSX-listed intermediate gold producer, focused on developing a portfolio of high quality mines in the prolific West-African region, where it has established a solid operational and construction track record.
Endeavour is ideally positioned as the major pure West-African multi-operation gold mining company, operating 5 mines in Côte d’Ivoire (Agbaou and Ity), Burkina Faso (Karma), Mali (Tabakoto), and Ghana (Nzema).
In 2016, it expects to produce between 535koz and 560koz at an AISC of US$870 to US$920/oz, excluding Karma which is in the commissioning stage. Endeavour is currently building its Houndé project in Burkina Faso, which is expected to commence production in Q4-2017 and to become its flagship low-cost mine with an average annual production of 190koz at an AISC of US$709/oz over an initial 10-year mine life based on reserves.
The development of the Houndé project is expected to lift Endeavour’s group production 900kozpa and decrease its average AISC to circa $800/oz by 2018, while exploration aims to extend all mine lives to 10 years.
