Excellon Resources Inc. (TSX: EXN) (NYSE: EXN) (FRA: E4X2) is pleased to announce results from underground drilling at the Platosa Mine in Durango, Mexico.
- High-grade results from the 623, NE-1, NE-1S, and Pierna mantos, with diamond drilling results from underground including:
- Underground drilling continues to define and delineate mineralization to support mine planning;
- Follow-up drilling on vertical zone intersected in hole EX21UG690 (2,860 g/t AgEq over 7.5 metres) is underway with assays pending.
"Drilling at Platosa continues to define and extend high-grade mineralization ahead of production," stated Jorge Ortega, Vice President Exploration. "We continue to focus on infill drilling to support planning for upcoming and future production, as well as testing the recently discovered high-grade zone – the 817 Zone – below Manto 623. We have now drilled an additional 20 holes on the 817 Zone with assays pending. This zone appears to have a vertical orientation and has the potential to open up a more vertical dimension to the deposit."
The following table shows highlighted intervals from the current definition and infill program being conducted from underground at Platosa:
Drilling from underground continues to define and expand known mineralization ahead of production at the 623, NE-1, NE-1S, and Pierna Mantos. Drilling at Platosa will continue to target areas ahead of production and test the extent of mineralization around mine workings.
Drilling to follow up on the hole EX21UG690, which intersected a wide high-grade interval that has a potential vertical orientation (see press release dated October 5, 2021) is currently underway, with assay results pending.
