Brixton Metals Drills 3.55% Cobalt over 0.98m at Its Langis Project

May 30, 2018 – Brixton Metals Corporation (TSXV: BBB) (the “Company” or “Brixton”) is pleased to announce drill results from its wholly owned Langis Mine Project located in the Cobalt Camp, Ontario, Canada.

Highlights from three drill holes at the Langis Project

  • Drill hole LM18-23 intersected 0.98m of 3.55% cobalt, 0.10% nickel
  • Drill hole LM18-24 intersected 22.00m of 0.11% nickel, 0.01% cobalt

Chairman and CEO of Brixton, Gary R. Thompson stated, “Brixton Metals has drilled some of the highest grade cobalt intercepts in the world from its Cobalt Camp projects in Ontario. Drill hole LM18-23 returned 3.55% cobalt over a 0.98m drilled interval, which is equivalent to more than 5000 g/t silver. Also we continue to show broad low grade Co-Ni-Ag intervals below the unconformity in the basement Archean meta-volcanics and meta-sediments. We plan to drill follow up holes on the highest grade intervals of cobalt and silver that where drilled thus far and further test for possible higher grade zones within the broad mineralized zones within the basement rocks. The Archean basement rocks which host these broad Co-Ni-Ag mineralized zones outcrop west of the underground workings at the Langis mine and will be drill tested.”

About the Langis and Hudson Bay Silver-Cobalt Project

Brixton’s wholly owned Langis and Hudson Bay past producing mines are located 500km north from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The cobalt-silver mineralization occurs as steeply-moderately and in some cases shallow dipping veins and as disseminations within any of the three main rock types: Archean volcanics, Coleman Member sediments and Nipissing diabase. The Langis mine produced 10.4Moz of silver at 25 oz/t Ag and 358,340 pounds of cobalt and the Hudson Bay mine produced 6.4Moz of silver at 123 oz/t Ag and 185,570 pounds of cobalt. Historically, the Cobalt Camp produced 50M pounds of cobalt as a by-product of 500M ounces of silver production.
