VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brixton Metals Corporation (“Brixton” or the "Company") (TSXV: BBB) (OTCQB: BBBXF) is pleased to announce 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 kilometer Thorn Cu-Au-Ag Project.
Highlights from Prospecting
- Five rock samples greater than 20 g/t gold
- Three rock samples greater than 1 oz/t gold, including a 1.5 oz/t Au sample (47.0 g/t Au)
- Sample Y642277 returned 31.9 g/t Au, 1490.0 g/t Ag, 5.6% Pb, 3.7% Zn, 0.1% Cu
- Three samples greater than 1% copper, including one greater than 5% copper in a new area
Chairman and CEO of Brixton Metals, Gary R. Thompson stated, “The Trapper Target was acquired earlier this year from Kodiak Copper for cash and share consideration of C$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 3km west-southwest from the Trapper Target seen in Map B below. Rock sample Y642124 returned 5.2% Cu, 1.1 g/t Au, 30.9 g/t Ag, see Figure 5 below for further details.

During the 2020 exploration program at Thorn, Brixton completed a total of 5,291.99m of core drilling of which, 2,788.55m over 16 holes were drilled at the Outlaw gold target and 2,503.44m over 3 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.
