BRIXTON METALS DRILLS 6.00 METRES OF 4,719.33 G/T SILVER AND 0.33% COBALT AT ITS LANGIS PROJECT, ONTARIO
Brixton Metals Corp. has released additional drill results from its wholly owned Langis mine project located in the Cobalt camp in Ontario, Canada.
Highlights of new drill results at the Langis project:
Drill hole LM18-42 intersected 6.00 metres of 4,719.33 grams per tonne silver and 0.33 per cent cobalt.
Drill hole LM18-44 intersected 8.00 metres of 813.56 grams per tonne silver.
Drill hole LM18-39 intersected 7.90 metres of 802.10 grams per tonne silver.
Drill hole LM18-45 intersected 3.00 metres of 1.23 per cent cobalt and 43.97 grams per tonne silver.
Gary R. Thompson, chairman and chief executive officer of Brixton, stated: "The Langis project, or Lucky Langis, continues to deliver exceptional high-grade silver and cobalt mineralization. The best results from this program encountered the very high grades at shallow depths near shaft No. 3, where we have not previously drilled. Hole 39 was successful in a 35-metre extension to mineralization drilled in hole 16 (news release: May 9, 2018), where 2,787 grams per tonne silver and 0.27 per cent cobalt was drilled over 7.8 metres. The high-grade intervals contain native silver, which occurs as fine disseminations, hairline to silver-cobaltite veinlets. The three metres of 1.23 per cent cobalt mineralization in hole 45 was also in an area that we have not previously drilled."

True widths cannot be determined at this time and reported widths are drilled intervals.
During 2018, the company has drilled approximately 6,862 metres at the Langis project. This year's drilling campaign was designed to test for additional silver and cobalt mineralization throughout the property. The drilling campaign has been very successful in identifying high-grade silver and cobalt mineralization as well as broad low-grade cobalt, nickel and silver mineralization.
Drill holes LM18-40 to LM18-44, where some of the highest-grade silver mineralization was encountered, were drilled around shaft No. 3 at Langis. The holes were designed to test for the continuity of the vein system above and below the historical workings. Drilling at shaft No. 3 has been successful in intersecting the silver and cobalt mineralization near the historically mined area. Generally, mineralization consisted of silver and cobalt minerals as disseminated and hairline fracture infill to veinlets and is hosted in a dark-grey/green Huronian conglomerate as well as in Archean volcanics. Additional drilling is planned in this area in order to test for continuity and controls of the silver and cobalt vein system.
Drill hole LM18-39 was designed as a stepout hole and test for extension of the high-grade silver encountered in drill hole LM18-16 (7.87 metres of 2,787.26 grams per tonne silver), which was previously released May 9, 2018. Hole LM18-39 intersected silver mineralization grading 802.10 grams per tonne silver over 7.9 metres, which consisted of native silver mineralization as disseminated and veinlets hosted in a dark-grey/green Huronian conglomerate. The mineralized vein system between hole LM18-39 and hole LM18-16 strikes for 35 metres and trends north-south. The true width and dip of the vein system are yet to be determined.
Quality assurance and quality control
Sealed samples were shipped by the company's geologists to ALS Minerals' preparation lab in Sudbury, Ont. ALS Minerals' laboratories are registered to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 17025 accreditations for laboratory procedures. Blank, duplicate and certified reference materials were inserted into the sample stream. Analysis for gold was done by fire assay with AA finish. All other elements were analyzed by aqua regia digest with ICP-AES finish. Cobalt overlimits were analyzed with sodium peroxide fusion and AES finish. Silver overlimits were analyzed by fire assay with gravimetric finish. Base metal overlimits were analyzed with aqua regia digest and AES finish. A copy of the quality assurance/quality control protocols can be viewed at the company's website.

About the Langis and Hudson Bay silver-cobalt project
Brixton's wholly owned Langis and Hudson Bay past-producing mines are located 500 kilometres north from Toronto, Ont., Canada. The cobalt-silver mineralization occurs as steeply moderately and, in some cases, shallow dipping veins and as disseminations within any of the three main rock types: Archean volcanics, Coleman member sediments and Nipissing diabase. The Langis mine produced 10.4 million ounces of silver at 25 ounces per ton silver and 358,340 pounds of cobalt and the Hudson Bay mine produced 6.4 million ounces of silver at 123 ounces per ton and 185,570 pounds of cobalt. Historically, the Cobalt camp produced 50 million pounds of cobalt as a byproduct of 500 million ounces of silver production.
