Excellon Resources Inc. (TSX: EXN) has intersected high-grade silver in its underground drilling at the Platosa Mine in Durango, Mexico.
- Further definition and expansion of the 623, NE-1 and NE-1S Mantos, with diamond drilling results from underground including:
- 1,828 g/t silver equivalent (AgEq) over 5.2m (1,051 g/t Ag, 12.1% Pb, 13.1% Zn and 0.2 g/t Au);
- 2,368 g/t AgEq over 1.6m (1,647 g/t Ag, 12.3% Pb, 11.6% Zn and 0.1 g/t Au); and
- 1,481 g/t AgEq over 2.5m (784 g/t Ag, 7.7% Pb, 13.9% Zn and 0.3 g/t Au)
Senior Vice President Geology and Corporate Development, Ben Pullinger, said drilling from underground continues to define and delineate mineralisation in areas ahead of production and outside of the current mine plan
“Drilling at Platosa continues to define high grade mineralisation ahead of production,” Mr Pullinger said.
“Additionally drilling into areas previously defined by historical surface holes is upgrading our confidence in the grade and tenor of mineralisation and expanding the mineralised envelope around 623 and NE-1.”
Drilling from underground continues to define and expand known mineralisation ahead of production at the 623, NE-1 and NE-1S Mantos.
Most significantly, drilling into the 623 and NE-1 Mantos continues to improve understanding and confidence, and extend mineralisation in these areas. Drilling at Platosa will continue to target areas ahead of production and test the extent of mineralisation around mine workings.
Platosa drill core samples are prepared and assayed by SGS Minerals Services in Durango, Mexico. The lab is accredited to ISO/IEC 17025. Assay turnarounds have been impacted recently by supply and labour shortages related to COVID-19.
