(BBB), up one-half cent to 13.5 cents on 67,000 shares, has seemingly forgotten about its kimberlite discovery at Langis that had it so enthused late last year. Mr. Thompson, chairman and chief executive officer, revealed last August that Brixton had discovered kimberlite at Langis, a cobalt and silver project in Northeastern Ontario.
