Straight from the CEO's mouth...

Bradford Cooke, Chairman and CEO, commented, "Endeavour delivered yet another year of record financial and operating performance in 2010 and as a result, the Company has never been in a better financial position. We finished last year with robust earnings, more than $100 million in working capital, no debt, falling cash costs, rising silver production and higher precious metals prices."

"In 2011, management is forecasting Endeavour's seventh consecutive year of organic silver production growth by expanding the Guanajuato plant from 600 up to 1000 tonnes per day. Cash costs are expected to continue declining into the mid-$5 per oz range and if we assume a US$30 average silver price in 2010, our mine operating profit margin will be around $24 per oz – remarkable by any standards."

"We remain focused on the continuous expansion and improvement of our two operating mines, the organic growth of our reserves and resources, and last but not least, we continue to seek opportunities to grow through mergers and acquisitions that are accretive to our shareholders. 2011 promises to be another great year for Endeavour Silver."

Thanks for the link (and video) TMFSinchiruna. 

It reminded me of how messy a mine can be.  I was told that the one that I worked at (albeit on the surface crew) was a very "clean" mine, in that there was never water around because it was always at sub-zero temperatures.

 "forecast of $113.9 million assuming $24 silver and $1,320 gold."    If they're using $24/ounce for the forecast this company is going to crush estimates this year!!!
