Endurance also announces that it has granted 75,000 stock options to John J. Watkins, a consultant to the Company, exercisable at $0.26 per share for a period of three years. The Options are subject to a four month hold period from April 26, 2006, and are also subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance. Mr. Watkins, a well respected Senior Geologist of over 30 years, has been consulting for Endurance on the BQ Property since October, 2005. He has agreed to dedicate a minimum 15 days per month to Endurance, commencing May 01, 2006, and will primarily be responsible for overseeing all exploration work on the BQ Property.

On April 20th, Endurance announced a gold intercept of 0.776 gpt over 33.05 metres, from a zone of stringer and stockwork sulphide mineralization in altered volcanics. That intercept represents a new discovery, which the Company will attempt to expand and up-grade with a planned $380,000 exploration program over the next four month period. That program will include additional Induced Polarization and magnetic geophysical surveys, additional soil geochemistry, detailed geological mapping, and a substantial diamond drilling program.
