Thorn Gold-Silver Project Summary
Brixton Metals’ wholly owned Thorn Project hosts a district scale Triassic to Cretaceous volcanoplutonic complex and related sedimentary units with several styles of mineralization related to porphyry and epithermal environments. Targets include sediment hosted gold, high-grade silver-gold-lead-zinc-bearing diatreme-breccia zones, high sulphidation gold-silver-copper breccia-veins and dissemination porphyry copper-gold-silver.
The 997 square kilometres Thorn Project is located in the Sutlahine River area of northwestern British Columbia, Canada, approximately 90 km ENE from Juneau, AK. The southern limit of the Thorn claim boundary is about 65 km from tide water.Thorn is relatively accessible from Vancouver. A commercial flight to Whitehorse, Yukon departing in the morning allows for transfers to a small fixed wing aircraft which can land on the airstrip at the property by lunch time.

The earliest known work on the Thorn property was carried out by Kennco Explorations (Western) Limited in 1959 during a regional exploration program. Including work by Brixton, a total of 323 silts, 8,666 soils, and 1,868 rock samples were collected. Geophysical work included ground magnetics, IP, airborne VTEM, and airborne magnetics. The total drilling to date is 29,169m within 170 diamond drill holes property wide.
The Thorn property is located within BC’s Golden Triangle. Click below on the Infographics by Visual Capitalist to learn more about the Golden Triangle in Northwest BC:
