Excellon Announces Strong Q1 2019 Production Results

“We had strong first quarter production, averaging 223 tpd for the quarter and 256 tpd for March, in particular, with improved head grades,” stated Brendan Cahill, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The initial mill upgrades completed by late March showed promising results with record recoveries at higher processing rates, with lead at 82-85%, zinc at 84-87% and silver at 91-93% at a rate of 400+ tpd. Further modifications are expected to be completed in Q2. As milling operations were paused for these upgrades, we had a significant stockpile at quarter-end of over 2,800 tonnes of high-grade ore, which was processed early in Q2. Additionally, delivery of 1,000 tonnes of concentrate slipped into early Q2. Both of these factors will be reflected in our financial results, but the operation has improved dramatically and we’re set for a strong Q2.”
