Brixton Metals Corporation (TSX: BBB) (OTCQB: BBBXF) is pleased to announce the discovery of 12 visible gold intercepts in 6 of its first 8 drill holes during its maiden Trapper Gold drilling campaign. The visible gold is present along a 550m strike length and for 200m down dip. Mineralization remains open and includes numerous near surface gold intercepts. The Trapper Gold Target is one of fourteen prospective zones at Brixton’s Thorn Project, located in Northwestern British Columbia, Canada.

Gary R. Thompson, President and CEO, stated, “The discovery of visible gold in drilling is obviously exciting for us. We knew that VG was present in the few historic holes in the area that we relogged early in the season, but it is encouraging to see the broad distribution of gold along strike and at depth. The gold mineralization is present in both the diorite and volcanic units, is hosted in multiple vein generations and is finely disseminated in the host rock. The multi-phase nature of mineralization is a very positive indicator. Further characterization of the Trapper Gold Target will utilize the geochemical, structural, and diamond drilling data obtained in 2021.”

Christina Anstey, Vice President of Exploration, stated, “The Trapper Gold Target has significantly progressed since the acquisition of the property in 2020. The Mobile MT survey completed earlier this season identified a large, deep seated resistivity anomaly immediately north of our current drilling. In 2021, we have completed systematic soil and rock sampling in this previously unexplored area. The visible gold and the occurrence of bornite associated with the geophysical anomaly indicate the potential existence of a large-scale, linked porphyry-epithermal system that may be related to the Chivas Target, located along trend to the northwest. Additional age dating work is also planned for this season, to better understand the timing of mineralizing events at the Camp Creek Porphyry, West Copper, Chivas, Trapper Gold, and Metla Targets.”
As stated in the July 26th, 2021 news release, Brixton contracted Expert Geophysics Limited to carry out 1072-line kilometers of Airborne Magnetic and Mobile Magnetotelluric (Mobile MT or MMT) geophysical surveys covering the Trapper Gold, Camp Creek Porphyry, Outlaw Gold, and West Copper Targets. The results of the Mobile MT identified a large resistivity feature coincident with the Trapper Gold Target that extends beyond 2km depth. Brixton’s maiden drill program is currently drilling this feature.

During the 2021 field exploration program 342 rock samples were collected at the Trapper Gold Target where several new zones of gold and copper mineralization were identified. Additionally, 394 soil samples were collected over the deep seated geophysical anomaly identified by the Mobile MT survey. Assay results are pending at the time of this news release. The Company has constructed five drill pads at the Trapper Gold Target thus far, with mulitple holes being drilled from each pad location.

Trapper Gold Target
The Trapper Gold Target is located approximately 8km southeast of the Camp Creek Porphyry Target. The Trapper Gold Target represents a volcanic and intrusive hosted gold occurrence where soil and rock sampling have identified a multi-kilometer long northwest trending gold anomaly. Rock sampling in 2020 identified a new area along Inlaw Creek that returned high-grade gold values, including ten samples with values ranging from 6.0 g/t Au to 47.0 g/t Au. Forty-two drill holes totaling 8,581m were drilled at the Trapper Gold Target in 2011 by the previous operator which generated encouraging gold results as both narrow high-grade and broad low-grade intervals.
Mr. Gary R. Thompson, P.Geo., the Chairman, CEO, and President for the Company who is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 has reviewed and approved the technical information in this press release.
