Brixton Metals Doubles Talisker Zone Strike and Drills 34.8 m of 1.33g/t AuEq and 3 m of 9.9 g/t AuEq

VANCOUVER, BC, August 17, 2011 – Brixton Metals Corporation (TSX-V: BBB) (the “Company” or “Brixton”) is pleased to announce assay results from three Talisker Zone holes of the proposed 25 hole drill program at its Thorn gold-silver-copper project located in Northwest British Columbia. Significantly, these early results increase the drilled strike length of the Talisker Zone mineralization from 200 to 400 m. The Talisker Zone remains open along strike and depth.

Mr. Gary R. Thompson, Chairman & CEO stated, “This is a very promising start to the 2011 program. Recent mapping and fieldwork has identified new targets and advanced historical concepts of known vein corridors at the Thorn Property. Drilling continues to test new targets and further our understanding of known mineralized zones. We are all encouraged to see the continuity of gold-silver-copper mineralization and extension of the Talisker Zone by 200 meters

Drill hole THN11-41 was drilled at the Talisker Zone as a 56 m step-out on strike to the northeast from 2005 hole THN05-37.Hole THN11-41 intersected 2.47 g/t AuEq over 10.15 m including 4.69 g/t AuEq over 3.95 m and 6.28 g/t AuEq over 1.04 m.

Drill hole THN11-42 was collared as a 200 m step-out to the northeast from historical hole THN05-37. This hole intersected 9.90 g/t AuEq over 3.00 m from 81.24 m and also intersected 1.33 g/t AuEq over 34.82 m from a lower mineralized interval starting from 117.82 m including 3.43 g/t AuEq over 2.68 m and 4.17 g/t AuEq over 1.0 m.

Drill hole THN11-43 was collared 30 m to the southwest from historic hole TH05-36 and cut 1.88 g/t AuEq over 2.91 m from 141.91 m. See table below for drill results.

Gold Equivalent (AuEq) numbers were calculated using a 200 week average for metal prices which at the time of this news release equal $1088 per ounce of gold, $19.62 per ounce of silver and $3.20 per pound of copper.

AuEq = Au g/t + (Cu% x 70.55/34.58) + (Ag g/t x 0.63/34.58)

Quality Assurance & Quality Control

The Thorn Project is managed by Equity Exploration Consultants Ltd. Stewart Harris, P.Geo., is Equity’s in-house QAQC expert who conducted a detailed QAQC analysis of the data.

Drill core samples were packed into rice sacks and sealed with uniquely-numbered straps to deter and identify evidence of tampering. Rice sacks were shipped via Small’s Expediting to the ALS Laboratory Group (ALS) preparation lab in Whitehorse, YT which has been certified compliant with ISO9001:2008 requirements.

There is no evidence of tampering with the samples between collection and the laboratory.

All standards fell within control limits.

About The Thorn Project

The 19,000-hectare Thorn Property is located 50 km northwest of the Golden Bear Mine road in the Sutlahine River area of Northwest British Columbia. Thorn shares many similarities with other high grade, high sulphidation metal deposits around the world including La Bodega in Colombia, Lepanto in the Philippines and El Indio in Chile.

Brixton has an option agreement with Kiska Metals for the Thorn property whereby Brixton may earn 51% interest by:

  • Making cash payments of $200,000
  • issuing 400,000 shares
  • conducting $5M in exploration over 4 years

Upon earn in, Kiska may elect to form a 49/51, Kiska/Brixton Joint Venture (“JV”). If Kiska elects not to JV then Brixton may earn to 65% by spending an additional $10M in exploration.
