He has provided consulting services to Excellon in development of the Platosa/Saltierra project since 2002, and has been responsible for the overall management of the Company's test-mining operation at its Platosa/Saltierra Property in Durango State, Mexico since the start of production in May 2005. Mr. MacFarlane was also instrumental in negotiating the commercial terms for the sale of the high-grade mineralization being produced at Platosa.

Mr. MacFarlane is a graduate mining engineer with over 30 years of wide ranging experience in the industry. His experience includes senior responsibilities in the operation of mines and mills as well as mine project development from feasibility to construction and the start-up of operations in Canada, South America, Europe, and Asia.

Excellon Resources Inc., an emerging silver producer, is using proceeds from its test-mining operation to explore its 14,692-hectare Platosa/Saltierra Properties in northeastern Durango State, Mexico. Taking advantage of a unique convergence of infrastructure, high grade ore, and low production costs, the Company has built a significant treasury and will remain self-financed well into the future as it tracks the Carbonate Replacement Deposit (CRD) believed to be at Platosa.
