Excellon Resources (TSX: EXN) (NYSE American: EXN) (FSE: E4X2) today provided an update on the ongoing drilling program at the Silver City Project located in Saxony, Germany. Among the highlights, the company reported smooth commencement of drilling at the first of four priority targets of the 12,000-metre diamond drilling program planned for 2021. In addition, a second drill rig was added to the program, with drilling now underway at the Peter Vein (Neue Hoffnung Gottes) and Bräunsdorf (Christbescherung) targets. “We have had another smooth startup of drilling at Silver City this year,” said Ben Pullinger, SVP Geology & Corporate Development. “We continue to appreciate the support of the local community and benefit from the excellent work of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg and the Helmholtz Institute of Freiberg. This year’s program builds on discoveries made last year in the first modern-day drilling for precious metals on the Bräunsdorf license. Our current drilling focusses on the historically productive gneiss-schist contact running through the Bräunsdorf and Peter Vein mines. In the coming weeks we will move up to the mafic-schist contact intersected last year at Reichenbach and Grauer Wolf, both of which yielded some of the most interesting results from drilling to date.”
