Market capitalisation


Following its acquisitions of SEMAFO and Teranga, Endeavour has become one of the top 10 major gold producers globally, with six mines in Côte d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso and Senegal plus a portfolio of development projects, all in the West African Birimian greenstone belt.

Endeavour’s Q422 preliminary results confirmed 10 consecutive years of achieving guidance, with FY22 production totalling 1,400koz and AISC roughly US$928/oz. It has added US$340m in value to Fetekro and Kalana via updated pre-feasibility studies (100% basis) and has announced a comprehensive shareholder returns programme. FY16–FY21 exploration yielded 11.4Moz indicated gold resources, a second five-year plan aims to discover a further 15–20Moz by FY26 (1.1Moz at Tanda-Iguela represents an excellent start). An expansion at Sabadola-Massawaa and the launch of Lafigue (NPV US$477m) are also now underway. Our most recent analysis of Endeavour valued it at US$35.07/share.
