BRIXTON METALS SAMPLES UP TO 36.9 G/T AU, 2,890 G/T AG AND 7.2% CU AND PROVIDES A DRILLING UPDATE ON ITS THORN PROJECT
Brixton Metals Corp. has provided an update on its newly expanded now 2,600-square-kilometre mineral tenure Thorn gold-copper-silver project, located in the Golden Triangle of northwestern British Columbia.
Drilling is ongoing with 3,025m within 16 core holes on the West and Central Outlaw Gold targets completed and 3 deep holes planned for the Camp Creek porphyry target
5,418 soil and 1,282 rock samples have been collected. Field work is ongoing with an emphasis on the newly acquired Trapper and Metla zones.
Chairman and CEO of Brixton Metals, Gary R. Thompson stated, "We are excited about the number of high grade gold-silver-copper samples that have been collected so far this season at the newly expanded Thorn district-scale property. The scale of the mineralized system at the Thorn District is remarkable. We are about halfway through our 5000-6000m drill program for this season and are keen to receive the upcoming assay results. We have completed drilling at the Outlaw Gold Zone and are now starting to drill the Camp Creek Porphyry Cu-Au target."
Brixton has completed 3,025m within 16 core holes on the West Outlaw and Central Outlaw Gold Target. Results shall be released as they are received from the assay lab. No previous drilling was conducted on the Outlaw West target. It was in 2018, where the first high gold numbers were collected of up to 39.4 g/t Au from a rock grab sample. Additional soil and rock sampling in 2020 returned up to 68.8 g/t Au from rock grab sample, and soil and rock samples have defined a gold anomaly of 500m by 750m in an east-west trend, see Figure 3 above. If the drilling is successful, this would represent a new discovery. The objective of drilling on the Central Outlaw Zone is to expand surface gold mineralization in a north-south direction and to expand gold mineralization to the east to a 700m strike. The gold mineralization in the Central Outlaw Zone forms a tabular body up to 60m thick with a shallow easterly plunge, hosted by interbeds of siltstone and graywacke.
Now that the Company has consolidated the Trapper claims, it can build on the Trapper Gold Trend through additional geochemical surveys, geological mapping and drilling.
Three deep holes between 600-1000m max depth each are planned on the Camp Creek Porphyry target. The proposed hole on IP line 600 is targeting a high chargeability anomaly that suggests porphyry mineralization of higher grade than that encountered by hole THN19-162 located 400m to the north given its closer proximity to a potential sulphides-rich porphyry centre (please see Figure 5 below).
