TORONTO, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Excellon Resources Inc. (TSX:EXN) (“Excellon” or “the Company”), Mexico’s highest grade silver producer, is pleased to announce that the Board of Directors has appointed Mr.
Brendan Cahill to the position of President of the Company.  Mr. Peter
Crossgrove will continue in his roles as Executive Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer.

“Brendan has been a tremendous addition to the Excellon team and I am
pleased to be transitioning leadership responsibility over to him,”
stated Mr. Crossgrove.

“Excellon’s high grade, low cost silver production from La Platosa
provides a rare opportunity to expand our new CRD/Source-style
discovery,” stated Mr. Cahill.  “I look forward to working with the
great team at Excellon and further developing our already excellent
relationships with the local communities of Bermejillo and Mapimi that
rely on La Platosa, as well as with Mexican government and business

Mr. Cahill joined Excellon as Executive Vice President in summer 2012
and was instrumental in the Company’s return to production following an
illegal blockade that disrupted production during the third quarter of
2012.  He was previously Vice President Corporate Development of
Pelangio Exploration Inc., a junior gold exploration company active in
Ghana, West Africa and Ontario, Canada, and served as Corporate
Secretary of Pelangio Mines Inc., prior to its merger with Detour Gold
Corporation.  Prior to Pelangio, he was a lawyer in the M&A and
corporate securities practices at Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP. 
At Davies, he advised on public and private transactions valued at over
$15 billion, including Barrick’s acquisition of Placer Dome in 2005. 
He also advised on public offerings totaling over $2 billion dollars
for various Canadian companies.

Mr. Cahill holds a law degree from the University of Western Ontario and
an undergraduate degree from the University of Toronto. 

About Excellon
Excellon’s high-grade silver production drives transformative
exploration potential.  The Company’s 100%-owned La Platosa Mine in
Durango is Mexico’s highest grade silver mine, with lead and zinc
by-products making it one of the lowest cash cost silver mines in the
country.  With 41,000 hectares of exploration ground surrounding the
mine, Excellon is focused on discovering the large-tonnage Source of
the high-grade silver mantos currently in production.  Such a discovery
has the potential to transform La Platosa into the next major project
in Mexico’s prolific CRD/silver belt.

On behalf of


Peter A. Crossgrove
Executive Chairman
