BRIXTON METALS FINDS MULTIPLE GOLD SAMPLES GREATER THAN 1 OZ/T AT THE TRAPPER TARGET ON ITS THORN PROJECT
Brixton Metals Corp. has sampled high-grade gold, silver and copper content in 17 in-place outcrop rock samples collected at and west of the recently acquired Trapper target on its vast 2,594-square-kilometre Thorn Cu-Au-Ag project.
20 grams per tonne
Three rock samples greater than
one ounce per ton
gold, including a
1.5 oz/t Au sample (47.0 g/t Au);
31.9 g/t Au, 1,490.0
5.6 per cent Pb, 3.7 per cent Zn, 0.1 per cent Cu;
Three samples greater than 1 per cent copper, including one
greater than 5 per cent copper
Chairman and chief executive officer of Brixton Metals Gary R. Thompson stated: "The Trapper target was acquired earlier this year from Kodiak Copper for cash and share consideration of $1-million, whom had drilled the target in 2011 with some very encouraging results. Several days of prospecting in the area have returned exciting new high-grade results. Further geochemical sampling, geological mapping and drilling will be the priorities during the next season's exploration program."

In addition to the high grades that were pulled from the Trapper target, an important new area of interest was identified through prospecting located about three km west-southwest from the Trapper target. Rock sample Y642124 returned 5.2 per cent Cu, 1.1 g/t Au and 30.9 g/t Ag.
The Trapper gold trend is a 5.5-kilometre-long northwest-striking zone that consists of highly altered volcanic sequences with quartz stockwork-brecciation and visible sulphide mineralization.
During the 2020 exploration program at Thorn, Brixton completed a total of 5,291.99 m of core drilling of which 2,788.55 m over 16 holes were drilled at the Outlaw gold target and 2,503.44 m over three holes were drilled at the Camp Creek porphyry target (assay results pending). The property-wide geochemical survey at the Thorn project includes 5,418 soil and 1,282 rock samples.
While the company has some rock sample results still pending, these maps represent a geochemical compilation totalling 6,600 rock, 25,000 soil and 2,500 stream sediment samples collected throughout the Thorn property of anomalous values.
