Stock2Me’s latest podcast features Brendan Cahill, President & CEO of Excellon Resources Inc. (TSX: EXN) (NYSE American: EXN) (FSE: E4X2).
During the interview, Cahill provided an introduction to Excellon’s business model and its current portfolio of production and exploration resource projects spanning North America and Europe.
“Excellon’s actually been around quite a long time. It was founded in 1989 but got to Mexico in the late ‘90s and started the Platosa Mine in 2005. It’s Mexico’s highest-grade silver producer,” Cahill explained. “We produce silver, lead and zinc and sell it into the global market, but Excellon’s always had a big focus on exploration. So, we’re also expanding in Idaho on gold projects and the very fascinating Silver City Project in Saxony, Germany – an area that was mined for 800 years for high-grade silver, with mining only stopping when Germany moved off the silver standard in 1873. We’re the first ones ever to use modern exploration technology on that project, and exploration starts again within the month looking for high-grade silver deposits.”
