Excellon reports highest grades to date at Rincon del Caido

409 g/t (11.9 oz/T) Ag, 10.23% Pb, 8.37% Zn, 0.114 g/t Au over 6.68 metres and 185 g/t (5.4 oz/T) Ag, 5.22% Pb, 5.58% Zn, 0.478 g/t Au over 10.33 metres in hole LP1030

Platosa Exploration Highlights:

  • Holes LP1028 and LP1030 encountered significant widths of semi-massive to massive to patchy sulphides at Rincon del Caido, 1 km northwest of the Platosa Mine;
  • Both holes intersected multiple intersections of high metal values, including:
    • 162 g/t (4.7 oz/T) Ag, 4.70% Pb, 4.06% Zn, 0.045 g/t Au over 10.46 metres ("m"), incl. 321 g/t (9.4 oz/T) Ag, 9.10% Pb, 9.26% Zn, 0.092 g/t Au over 4.46 m in LP1028;
    • 409 g/t (11.9 oz/T) Ag, 10.23% Pb, 8.37% Zn 0.114 g/t Au over 6.68 m & 185 g/t (5.4 oz/T) Ag, 5.22% Pb, 5.58% Zn, 0.478 g/t Au over 10.33 m in hole LP1030;
  • Anomalous gold values (incl. 3.34 g/t over 0.65 m in LP1030), combined with anomalous bismuth (1,885 ppm over 1.5 m in LP1030) and copper (0.27% over 1.3 m in LP1028 and 0.36% over 2.9 m in LP1030), continue to suggest increasing proximity to the Source of the high-grade Platosa mantos;
  • Four drills continue to be deployed at Rincón del Caído, with a fifth expected to be added in the coming weeks.
