Brixton Metals Corporation (TSX-V: BBB) is pleased to announce further high-grade drill results from its fall/winter exploration program at its wholly owned Langis Project located in the Cobalt Camp of Ontario, Canada. The fall/winter program consists of 20,000m of drilling, of which 11,533.65m has been completed. Assay results for 4,881.05m has been released previously. This press release includes assays from 14 holes totaling 1,583.2m of NQ size core from shallow drilling.
Chairman and CEO of Brixton, Gary R. Thompson stated, “Brixton’s Langis Project continues to deliver, near-surface, high-grade silver and cobalt results over intervals of considerable width, demonstrating this project’s potential. Drilling will be ongoing over the next few months to complete the planned 20,000m drill program as we continue to advance the Langis Project toward a maiden resource.”

Quality Assurance & Quality Control
Diamond drill holes were drilled with NQ size core. Samples were collected using 1m average sample length. Three quality control samples (one blank, one certified reference standard and one duplicate) were inserted into each batch of 20 samples. The drill core was cut in half and put in batches, sealed and shipped by the Company geologists to ALS Minerals preparation lab in Sudbury, Ontario. ALS Minerals Laboratories are registered to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 17025 accreditations for laboratory procedures. All elements were analyzed by Aqua Regia Digest with ICP-AES finish. Silver over-limits were analyzed by fire assay with gravimetric finish. Base metal over-limits were analyzed with Aqua Regia Digest and AES finish. A copy of the QAQC protocols can be viewed at the Company’s website.
About the Langis Mine Project
Brixton’s wholly owned Langis Mine Project is a past producing mine with excellent infrastructure, located 500km north from Toronto, Ontario, Canada just north from the northern end of Lake Temiskaming. The silver mineralization occurs as native silver and within steeply-moderately and in some cases shallow dipping veins, veinlets and as disseminations, rosettes and fracture infill and can be associated with calcite, hematite, pyrite, cobaltite, chalcopyrite, niccolite and gold. Mineralization is hosted within any of the three main rock types: Archean volcanics and metasediments, Coleman Member sediments and Nipissing diabase. The Langis Mine produced 10.6Moz of silver at 787 g/t Ag and 358,340 pounds of cobalt. Historically, the combined mines in the Cobalt Camp produced over 550 million ounces of silver with 30-50 million pounds of cobalt as a by-product.
Mr. Antonio Celis, P.Geo., who is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, reviewed and approved the information in this press release.
