Brixton Metals Drills 3m of 647 g/t Ag including 1m of 1,845 g/t Ag at its Langis Project, Ontario, Canada

 

 

 

 

 

Brixton Metals Corporation (TSX-V: BBB) is pleased to announce the initial drill results from its fall/winter exploration program on the Langis Mine Project located in the Cobalt Camp of Ontario. The Company has received assays for the first 17 holes totaling 1624m of NQ size core. Approximately 6,000m of the 20,000m planned fall/winter drilling campaign have been completed. Drill holes follow a fan-type array with depths ranging from 52.5m to 148.4m across the main trend.

 

Highlights

 

  • Hole LM20-93 intercepted three mineralized intervals near surface, including:

         • 6m of 193 g/t Ag from 2.6m; including 3m of 351 g/t Ag, including 1m of 990 g/t Ag
         • 4m of 127 g/t Ag from 17.6m, including 2m of 238 g/t Ag
         • 3m of 647 g/t Ag from 32.6m including 1m of 1845 g/t Ag

  • LM20-96 returned 7m of 222.9 g/t Ag including 4m of 360 g/t Ag and 1m of 692 g/t Ag
  • LM20-102 intercepted 4m of 333 g/t Ag including 1m of 904 g/t Ag, 0.2% Co

 

Chairman and CEO of Brixton, Gary R. Thompson stated, “It is encouraging to see the high-grade silver and cobalt mineralization over meaningful intervals above the historic workings. Based on the current gold/silver ratio of 75:1, the lower interval in hole LM20-93 of 3m of 647 g/t Ag is equivalent to 8.6 g/t Au. Drilling is ongoing as we work toward a maiden resource at Langis.”

 

These drilling results continue to support the existence of new, shallow, high-grade silver-cobalt mineralization around the Shaft 3 area. Historical drilling around the Shaft 3 area is very limited and mostly underground. Silver-cobalt mineralization was first drilled by the Company in 2018 and has continued to bring encouraging results from subsequent drilling campaigns. “Defining and adding a new silver-cobalt zone could significantly increase the Langis silver resource potential,” said Antonio Celis, Senior Geologist and QP for Brixton Metals.

Quality Assurance & Quality Control

 

Diamond drill holes were drilled to depth NQ size. Samples were collected using 1m average sample length. Three quality control samples (one blank, one standard and one duplicate) were inserted into each batch of 20 samples. The drill core was sawn, with half 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.  Blank, duplicate and certified reference materials were inserted into the sample stream. 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 Mines Project is a past producing mine located 500km north from Toronto, Ontario, Canada with excellent infrastructure. 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 550 million ounces of silver with 30-50 million pounds of cobalt as a by-product.
