The brokered placement is for 4,000,000 flow-through units of the Company (each a “Flow-though” unit) at $0.25 per unit (the “offering”) for total gross proceeds of $1,000,000.Each unit consists of one common share and a one-half of one purchase warrant, with each full purchase warrant being exercisable into one common share of the Company at $0.40 for a 24-month period.The securities issued pursuant to this offering are subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the closing date.

The Company has also priced its previously announced unit offering at $0.20 per unit (the “Units”).The Units will consist of one common share of the Company and one-half of one purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each warrant will be exercisable for one common share of the Company for a period of 24 months from the closing date at an exercise price of $0.30.

The finder for the Flow-through is First Canadian Securities (a division of Limited Market Dealer Inc.) which received a cash finder’s fee, equal to 6% of the gross proceeds received and finders units equal to 8% of the Flow-through units sold (the “Finder Units”).The Finders Units are exercisable at $0.25 into units of the Company consisting of one common share and one-half of onenon-flow-through warrant, each whole warrant is exercisable into a common share of the company at $ 0.40 for a period of 24 months following the closing date.

Gary Thompson, Chairman and CEO of Brixton, commented on the offering “Brixton is very pleased to add MineralFields Group as an Institutional Investor. This is an important milestone in the growth of Brixton and we look forward to working with MineralFields Group as we develop our Thorn project in Northern British Columbia”

The Thorn property is a high sulphidation silver-gold-copper project covering 19,000-hectares. Originally a Kennco discovery in 1959, it has had approximately $5 million in exploration spent to date, which included 6,386 meters of drilling and numerous geophysical and geochemical surveys.

Gary Thompson added “We see many similarities with other high sulphidation metal deposits around the world including La Bodega in Colombia, Lepanto in Philippines and El Indio in Chile which all share comparable characteristics to Thorn. We see Thorn as a high-grade Ag-Au, Cu mineralized vein system forming as a series of veins as parallel, sheeted and or clusters of veins.”

Brixton now has a phase one budget for Thorn of about $1.3 million, which will mainly focus on drilling at the Talisker Zone. Toby Hughes, VP of Exploration, commented on the upcoming year “We are very optimistic about this years program at Thorn. Previous operators have found some excellent numbers with high grades on many of the zones.” Drilling is anticipated to begin early June 2011.

Toby Hughes, P. Geo., is a Qualified Person as defined by the National Instrument 43-101.
