BRIXTON METALS SAMPLES 68.8 G/T GOLD AT ITS THORN PROJECT IN THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE AND ANNOUNCES AN UPSIZED AND FULLY SUBSCRIBED $5,500,000 PRIVATE PLACEMENT
Brixton Metals Corp. has provided an update on its Thorn project exploration activities. Ongoing soil geochemical surveys and rock sampling has returned gold values up to 68.8 grams per tonne gold from the West Outlaw target area where preparation for drilling has started.
Due to strong investor demand Brixton is pleased to announce it has increased its offering and is now fully-subscribed on its non-brokered private placement of a combination of units and flow-through shares of the company for gross proceeds of up to $5.5-million as further described in its news release dated July 24, 2020.
Since June, 2020, Brixton has collected 4,480 soil samples and 763 rock samples across several large-scale copper and gold targets on the Thorn project. The company completed 12 km of IP geophysical surveys, which is the extension of the 2019 survey and two deep downhole IP geophysical surveys over the Camp Creek Porphyry target. Gold results to date from the Outlaw target are reported here and copper results will be reported in a separate news release upon interpretation of the geophysical and geochemical data and as it becomes available.
So far this season, a total of 972 soils and 39 rocks samples were collected over the Outlaw target area. Four of the 39 rock samples returned greater than 2 g/t Au and two rock samples returned greater than 10 g/t Au, as 14.5 g/t Au and 68.8 g/t Au respectively. No drilling has been done in the Outlaw West area, which is a 1,000 m by 500 m gold-in-soil anomaly.
257 samples returned greater than 30 ppb Au, 96 samples returned greater than 100 ppb Au and 11 samples were greater than 1,000 ppb Au. All of the 11 soil samples greater than 1,000 ppb Au are concentrated at the West Outlaw area.
Chairman and chief executive officer of Brixton, Gary R. Thompson, stated: "Our boots on the ground approach this season at the Thorn project is paying off with strong gold and copper numbers from several new target areas and the expansion of the Outlaw West target is looking very promising for high grade gold mineralization. We are now gearing up for drilling at the Outlaw West gold target as we continue to generate new large-scale copper-gold targets on the district scale project."
An estimated 10 drill core holes are planned for 2,500 m to 3,000 m at the Outlaw gold target.
The company is on track to complete its planned 10,000 soils and 1,000 rock sample program this season at the Thorn project. Further geophysical surveys are planned subject to favorable weather conditions. Further drilling is planned for the balance of the season and is subject to refinement of field mapping, geochemistry and geophysical surveys. In addition to the blind porphyry target at Camp Creek which remains to be fully drill tested, the company believes that multiple new discoveries can be made within the district scale system.
Private placement update
Due to strong demand, Brixton has increased its previously announced private placement to gross proceeds of $5.5-million, consisting of a combination of units and flow-through shares of the company. Each unit is being offered at a price of 25 cents and will be comprised of one common share of the company and one common share purchase warrant. Each flow-through share is being offered at a price of 28 cents and will be comprised of one common flow-through share of the company. Each warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the company at a price of 35 cents for a period of 36 months from the date of closing of the offering. The offering is scheduled to close on or about Aug. 12, 2020, and is subject to receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
About the Outlaw gold zone
The Outlaw zone represents a four km sediment-hosted gold-silver target. Mineralization is at or near surface and is hosted within multiple stacked horizons of considerable thickness of subhorizontal sediments as interbedded siltstone-graywacke with both stratigraphic and structural controls. The consistent nature of the gold mineralization is thought to be associated with the Jurassic aged rhyodacite dikes. Early exploration work on the Outlaw zone was conducted by Chevron's mineral division in the 1980's which entailed soil and rock geochemical surveys, trenching and a few drill holes. Brixton has drilled a limited number of core holes at broadly spaced centres for about 450 m of continuous strike within the four km trend with consistent results.
