Third quarter production exceeded our estimates. On a silver equivalent basis, third quarter production exceeded our expectations due to higher silver grades at both mines. Compared to the second quarter of 2022, silver production increased 7.3% to 1,458,448 ounces, while gold production decreased 1.0% to 9,194 ounces. Third quarter silver and gold sales amounted to 1,327,325 ounces and 8,852 ounces, respectively. At quarter end, Endeavour held 1,527,548 ounces of silver and 3,210 ounces of gold in bullion inventory and 2,769 ounces of silver and 144 ounces of gold in concentrate inventory. Relative to the end of the second quarter, bullion inventory increased while concentrate inventory declined.
Updating estimates. While production was ahead of our estimates, we had assumed greater sales from inventory. Due to lower than expected sales in the third quarter, we have lowered our net income and earnings per share estimates to $2.0 million and $0.01, respectively, from $5.6 million and $0.03. We have lowered our full year EBITDA and EPS estimates to $42.9 million and $0.09, respectively, from $49.9 million and $0.11. Due to modestly lower 2023 silver and gold pricing assumptions, we have trimmed our 2023 EBITDA and EPS estimates to $53.3 million and $0.11, respectively, from $58.6 million and $0.13.
