Drilling Underway on Thorn Project, B.C. While Alaskan District Heats Up

Vancouver, British Columbia, June 6, 2011 – Brixton Metals Corporation (“Brixton” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: BBB) today announced that an exploration crew is mobilizing by helicopter to northern British Columbia’s Thorn project camp site where construction has been completed, starting today. The drill rig will be moved to the site on June 13th and drilling is anticipated to commence on June 15th.

As previously announced on April 6, 2011, Brixton has a minimum of $1.3 million budgeted for the phase one drill program for approximately 3,000 metres of drilling to focus on the Talisker corridor which includes the Feeder, Unconformity targets and the camp creek corridor which includes the Oban and F zones. Some of the drilling is designed to test continuity and strike potential of previously drilled zones and attractive geological concepts not previously tested on the property, most notably the Unconformity and Feeder zones targets.

The 19,000-hectare Thorn Property is located 50 km northwest at the end of the Golden Bear Mine road in the Sutlahine River area of North Western British Columbia. Thorn shares many similarities with other world-class high sulphidation metal deposits such as La Bodega in Colombia, Lepanto in the Philippines and El Indio in Chile. Highest grades to date found at the Thorn property have assayed up to 265 g/t gold, 6,149 g/t silver and 32% copper.

Meanwhile in Alaska, things are heating up near its Kahlit District property and Brixton’s CEO has noted it’s not the weather! “The recent news out of Kiska Metals and Millrock Resources with Teck Resources, both rise to support our story that the Kahiltna Terrane has the potential to become a district-scale play in Alaska. Teck has pushed forward on the Estelle gold project and exercised its warrants in Millrock, and Kiska are pulling out some exciting holes that highlight even more large porphyry-style gold-copper targets,” explained Gary Thompson, Brixton Metals’ Chairman and CEO.
