(Reuters) - Canada's Endeavour Mining Corp <EDV.TO> said on Tuesday it plans to take its 1.47 billion pound buyout offer for Centamin Plc <CEY.L> directly to shareholders, after the British gold miner refused to discuss the bid.

Endeavour Mining said the all-share takeover plan has an exchange ratio of 0.0846 Endeavour shares for each Centamin share, a 13.1% premium to their closing price on Monday.

Centamin did not immediately respond to Reuters' request for a comment outside of business hours.
