Excellon Resources Inc. announced permitting approval for the Drill Operation Plan at the Silver City Project in Saxony, Germany and to outline 2021 drilling plans. Highlights from the 2020 drilling program include: 1,042 g/t AgEq over 0.45 metres (911 g/t Ag, 0.4 g/t Au, 2.8% Pb and 0.9% Zn), within 231 g/t AgEq over 2.30 metres (183 g/t Ag, 0.4 g/t, Au 0.5% Pb and 0.2% Zn) in initial drilling on the Peter Vein; 505 g/t AgEq over 0.71 metres (356 g/t Ag, 2.0 g/t Au), within 191 g/t AgEq (134 g/t Ag and 0.8 g/t Au) in first hole at Reichenbach (Großvoigtsberg), a new, near-surface discovery in an area with minimal historic mining; 319 g/t AgEq over 0.35 metres (300 g/t Ag, 0.2 g/t Au and 0.2% Zn), within 101 g/t AgEq (87 g/t Ag, 0.2 g/t Au) at Bräunsdorf; 1,043 g/t AgEq over 1.3 metres (954 g/t Ag, 0.1 g/t Au, 0.7% Pb and 2.0% Zn) within 100 metres of surface, within 194 g/t AgEq over 8.1 metres (173 g/t Ag, 0.1 g/t, Au, 0.4% Pb and 0.3% Zn), and 331 g/t AgEq over 1.2 metres (325 g/t Ag, 0.1 g/t Au, 0.03% Pb and 0.03% Zn) in the hanging wall at Grauer Wolf, a new high-grade discovery in an area with no historic drilling. drilling at the Munzig target in late 2020 encountered two zones of mineralization within 75 metres of surface (including 2.43 metres grading 116 g/t AgEq from 70 metres and 1.60 metres grading 143 g/t AgEq from 77 metres in SC20MUN015) separated by a non-mineralized dike, potentially aligning with historic records describing some of the broadest widths in the Bräunsdorf area. Including the Munzig target, mineralization has now been encountered over 24 kilometres of strike. The table below summarizes targets and associated mineralization on areas tested in 2020. The 2020 program totaled 3,700 metres of drilling and intersected significant alteration and or mineralization in seven of nine targets. In addition to the drilling planned for 2021, fieldwork including mapping, prospecting and geophysical surveys are scheduled to be completed on the Bräunsdorf license and the newly acquired Oederan, Mohon and Frauenstein licenses. These programs are intended to expand and define new drill targets into 2022. The Silver City Project was mined for high-grade silver from the 11th until the late 19th century, when Germany left the silver standard in 1873 and the gold:silver ratio collapsed. Records from the project indicate high-grade silver production over substantial widths throughout the district. Excellon has embarked on the first modern day exploration program focused on precious metals.
