(TSX: EXN) (NYSE: EXN) (FRA: E4X2) has filed an updated independent technical report for the 164 square kilometres Silver City Project in Saxony Germany, under option from Globex, which was prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101.

Recommendations from the Technical Report (Verbatim from Excellon’s press release)
“The author of the Technical Report, Mr. Michael J. Robertson, Pr.Sci.Nat (400005/92); MAusIMM (316078), of the independent consulting firm The MSA Group (Pty) Ltd., has concluded that the Company's proposed work program, outlined below, is appropriate for the Silver City Project. The main components of the program are:
Step-out diamond drilling at Bräunsdorf to assess the extent and nature of mineralization below workings of the historical Neue Hoffnung Gottes Mine.
Step-out diamond drilling at Grauer Wolf and Reichenbach to confirm the continuity of the known mineralization along the strike and towards depth.
Step-out diamond drilling at Grosvoigtsberg to confirm continuity of the known mineralization along the strike and towards depth, particularly in the areas where rich ore shoots were documented during historical mining.
Drill testing of magnetic lineaments and inferred geological contacts near Grauer Wolf and Reichenbach.
Drill testing of magnetic lineaments and inferred geological contacts at Obergruna where historical mapping indicates the presence of mineralized veins.
Fence drilling at Langhennersdorf to test soil anomalies.
Test continuation of high-grade ore shoot below Erzengel Michael Mine at Mohorn Licence
Drill test extensions of the vein below Friedrich August mine at Frauenstein
Drill test mineralization below and along strike of Bergmannische Hoffnung mine at Oederan
An airborne magnetic survey in selected areas to complement the dataset that was obtained during the earlier surveys.
High-resolution resistivity and chargeability surveys on selected targets including orientation study in the area of known mineralization.
Rock magnetic susceptibility study on available drill core for all target areas and all encountered lithologies to support the interpretation of available and future magnetic survey data.
Pending the results from the 2021/2022 soil sampling, extend the soil geochemical sampling program within the Project area.
Soil geochemical sampling on three lines on the Frauenstein licence.
Further structural analysis to improve understanding of the controls on mineralization and the implications for exploration targeting.
Archive work, digitizing and georeferencing historical mine plans.
Regional exploration work on the rest of the Silver City Project.
