Excellon Resources Inc.: Maturity Date of Silver Debentures Extended to October 30, 2007

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 31, 2007) - Excellon Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EXN) announces that, as approved by a extraordinary resolution of the holders of its USD 9,900,000 principal sum silver debentures passed on August 30, 2007, the Company and Computershare Trust Company of Canada have entered into a supplemental trust indenture date as of August 30, 2007, pursuant to which the maturity date of the silver-backed debentures has been extended from August 31, 2007 to October 30, 2007. The extension will enable Minera Excellon de Mexico, S.A. de C.V. ("Minera Excellon"), the Company's Mexican subsidiary, to complete its proposed assumption of the Company's obligations under the silver-backed debenture indenture (the "Indenture") in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Indenture. The Company had intended that its obligations would be assumed by Minera Excellon when the silver-backed debentures were created, but Minera Excellon is only now in a position to be able to assume the obligations. The Indenture, as supplemented, provides for an early redemption right and a purchase for cancellation right and, after the proposed assumption, Minera Excellon may use one of these rights to satisfy its Indenture obligations prior to October 30, 2007.
