Excellon Resources Announces TSX Approval of Normal Course Issuer Bid

November 29, 2012

Toronto Stock Exchange – EXN

TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Excellon Resources Inc. (TSX: EXN) (“Excellon” or “the Company”), Mexico’s highest grade silver producer, is pleased to announce that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) has
approved the notice of its intention to make a normal course issuer bid
(the “NCIB Program”).

The Company has filed the NCIB Program to allow for market purchases of
the Company’s common shares (the “Shares”) under certain market
conditions and subject to the approval of the Board of Directors.  The
Company does not currently intend to purchase Shares on the market, but
may do so from time to time in the future.  Although the Board of
Directors and Management of the Company believe that the Shares are
currently significantly undervalued, the Company’s cash flow is best
used to fund the ongoing, aggressive diamond drill program on the
Company’s new CRD/Source-style discovery on the La Platosa Property in
the state of Durango, Mexico.  The Company’s exploration programs are
fully funded from high-grade silver production at the La Platosa Mine.

Pursuant to the terms of the NCIB Program, Excellon shall be permitted
to purchase Shares for cancellation through the facilities of the TSX
at the prevailing market price of the Shares. The Company may purchase
a maximum of 26,468,732 Shares (or 10% of the total public float)
pursuant to the NCIB Program. Purchases will be subject to a daily
maximum of 75,060 Shares, except where such purchases are made in
accordance with the “block purchase” exemption under applicable TSX
policy. Excellon may make purchases from time to time commencing on
December 3, 2012 and ending on December 2, 2013.

As at the close of business on November 28, 2012, Excellon had
275,179,467 Shares issued and outstanding.

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.
