In addition, the company noted that during its recent annual general meeting (“AGM”), shareholders voted in favor of items of business on the agenda. The shareholders also participated in the election of directors, which included Brendan Cahill, André Fortier, Laurence Curtis, Anna Ladd-Kruger, Craig Lindsay, Roger Norwich and Michael Timmins. “Our team in Mexico delivered a strong quarter, though with room for improvement,” said Excellon Resources president and CEO Brendan Cahill in the press release. “As previously disclosed, the polar vortex in February had a sizeable impact on our cost profile, though our team at Platosa did an excellent job mitigating the impact to a great extent. Additionally, we see room for improvement in metal recoveries, which will improve payable metals and byproduct credits. Looking toward the coming quarters, we are focused on continuing our drilling programs around Platosa and on the developing Platosa-style target 11 kilometers northwest at Jaboncillo, while we ramp up drill programs at Oakley and Silver City in the coming weeks.”
