About Brixton Metals Corporation

 

Brixton is an exploration company focused on the advancement of its gold and silver projects toward feasibility.

 

The Langis project does not currently contain any mineral resources or mineral reserves.

 

The 100% owned Langis project and lands in the Cobalt Camp is 2,520 hectare in size. The project is located 500 km north of Toronto, Canada. The high-grade silver mineralization occurs as steeply-dipping veins within any of the three main rock types; Archean volcanics, Coleman Member sediments and Nipissing diabase. The Cobalt camp has historically produced over 420 million ounces of silver with some reported assays reaching 255,146 g/t Ag or 9,000 oz/t Ag over 0.36 metres. The unmined zone intersected by drilling: 2,115.04 g/t Ag over 9.4 metres and 1,262.80 g/t Ag over 3.9 metres. This area will be the focus for follow up exploration work. According to historical Langis reports, the zone was traced to over 1,000 metres along strike and a vertical extent of 260 metres with true thickness being unknown. http://brixtonmetals.com/langis-mine/

 

The 28,000 hectare, 100% owned Thorn Project is located in northwestern British Columbia, Canada, approximately 105 km ENE from Juneau, AK. The Thorn project hosts a district scale Triassic to Cretaceous volcano-plutonic complex with many styles of mineralization related to porphyry and epithermal environments. Targets include sediment hosted Au-Ag, Ag-Au-Pb-Zn diatreme-breccia, Au-Ag-Cu veins; and volcanic hosted structurally controlled Au-Ag. Brixton has established a maiden inferred resource of 21.5Moz AgEq from 7.4 Mt at 89.75 g/t AgEq based on limited drilling. Further information regarding the Thorn Project, including resource estimates, can be found in the Company’s technical report prepared by SRK Consulting dated December 12, 2014 and filed on SEDAR.
