Brixton Metals Drills 5.00m of 1,293 g/t Silver, Including 2.00m of 3,205 g/t Silver at Its Langis Project, Ontario

 

 

 

 

 

Brixton Metals Corporation (TSX-V: BBB) is pleased to announce drill results from its wholly owned Langis Mine Project located in the Cobalt Camp, Ontario, Canada. Sixteen holes were drilled for a total of 992.50 metres.

 

Highlights of New Drill Results at the Langis Project

 

  • Drill hole LM20-83 intersected 5.00m of 1,293.34 g/t silver, including 2.00m of 3,205.00 g/t silver and 0.15 percent cobalt
  • Drill hole LM20-76 intersected 6.00m of 250.97 g/t silver, including 2.00m of 702.00 g/t silver
  • Drill hole LM20-87 intersected 9.00m of 374.03 g/t silver, including 2.00m of 1,492.50 g/t silver

 

Chairman and CEO of Brixton, Gary R. Thompson stated, “The Langis Project continues to deliver exceptional high-grade and uniquely native silver results. Our objective was to identify mineable widths of high-grade silver mineralization. The Cobalt Camp is known for narrow high-grade silver veins; however, Brixton has demonstrated these remarkably high grades are attainable over considerable widths. After completing this small, low cost drill program it is evident that additional silver rich zones at shallow depths remain at the Langis mine area. The goal here would be to drill enough near surface material to make economics.”

 

During 2020, the Company has drilled 16 NQ sized core holes for approximately 992.50 metres at the Langis Project. This year’s drilling campaign was designed to identify new silver zones near old workings and to follow up on some of the 2018 high grade silver drilled intercepts. The drilling campaign has been successful in identifying new high grade silver mineralization over significant widths.

Drill holes LM20-75 to 80 were drilled around the western extent of the historic underground workings. Native silver mineralization intersected in hole 76 returned 6.00m of 250.97 g/t Ag, including 3.00m of 487.47 g/t Ag including 2.00m of 702.00 g/t Ag. Native silver occurs as fracture fillings, coatings and within veins associated with calcite-hematite and is hosted in a dark grey-green Huronian conglomerate.

Drillhole 78 intersected 11.00m of 110.37 g/t Ag, including 4.00m of 211.75 g/t silver. The silver mineralization consists of silver arsenides associated with calcite-hematite veins and veinlets to fracture infill or as disseminated hosted in the Huronian conglomerate.

 

Drillholes LM20-82 to 90 were drilled at the Shaft 3 area and were designed to follow up on 2018 drilling where hole LM18-42 intersected 6.00m of 4,719.33 g/t silver and 0.33 percent cobalt. The best mineralized silver interval intersected in the 2020 drilling was intersected in hole 83 which assayed 5.00m of 1,293.34 g/t silver, including 2.00m of 3,205.00 g/t silver and 0.15 percent cobalt. Mineralization is hosted in a dark grey-green Huronian conglomerate unit and generally consists of native silver and cobaltite associated with calcite veins, veinlets and is disseminated throughout the host rock.

Hole 84 assayed 5.00m of 464.06 g/t silver, including 2.00m of 1,116.00 g/t silver. Mineralization consists of silver arsenide hosted in calcite-hematite veins and disseminated native silver.

Quality Assurance & Quality Control

 

Ms. Caroline Vallat, P.Geo., from GeoSpark Consulting Inc. conducted an independent QAQC review, which returned overall strong accuracy and precision of the analytical results. Diamond drill holes were drilled to depth NQ size. Samples were collected using 1 metre average samples 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 and Hudson Bay Silver-Cobalt Project

 

Brixton’s wholly owned Langis and Hudson Bay past producing mines are 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 10.4Moz of silver at 25 oz/t Ag and 358,340 pounds of cobalt and the Hudson Bay mine produced 6.4Moz of silver at 123 oz/t Ag and 185,570 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.
