July 26th, 2021 – Brixton Metals Corporation (TSXV: BBB) (OTCQB: BBBXF) (the “Company” or “Brixton”) is pleased to announce the discovery of visible gold in outcrop at the Trapper Gold Target on its wholly owned Thorn Project. The Thorn Project is located in Northwestern British Columbia, Canada (See Figure 1 below for location).
Vice President of Exploration, Christina Anstey stated, “Brixton acquired the Trapper claims from Kodiak Copper in 2020 where previous exploration identified a multi-kilometer gold trend through geochemical sampling and drilling. On July 21st, 2021, visible gold was discovered in a previously unexplored outcrop on the east side of Inlaw Creek seen in Figures 3-5 (assays pending). Brixton relogged and reanalyzed select mineralized intervals within six drill holes of the forty-two holes that were drilled in 2011. Visible gold was identified in several of the relogged holes that was not noted in the original logs (Figure 6). Brixton is preparing for its maiden drill program at the Trapper target in the coming days.”

The re-logged core from 2011 drilling at Trapper was cut into quarter-core over approximately 0.60m intervals. Re-assayed results are below the pictures of visible gold in Figure 6 below.

Brixton contracted Expert Geophysics Limited to conduct 1072-line kilometers of Airborne Magnetic and Mobile Magnetotelluric (Mobile MT or MMT) geophysical surveys covering the Trapper Gold, Camp Creek Porphyry, Outlaw Gold and West Copper Targets. The profile in Figure 7 below is a 6km segment from one of the 56 lines that were flown in an east-west direction. The results of the MMT identified a large resistivity feature which is coincident with the Trapper gold target that extends beyond 2km depth. Brixton plans to drill within this geophysical feature and the structures related to the visible gold that have been identified.

Trapper Gold Target
The Trapper Gold Target is located about 8km southeast from the Camp Creek Target. The Trapper Target represents a volcanic hosted epithermal gold target where soil and rock sampling have identified a 7.5km long northwest trending gold anomaly. Rock sampling in 2020 identified a new area along Inlaw Creek that returned high-grade gold values, including ten samples with values from 6.0 g/t Au to 47.0 g/t Au. Forty-two drill holes totaling 8581m were drilled at the Trapper Target in 2011. Gold mineralization is hosted within iron carbonate altered Lapilli tuff of the Triassic Stuhini Group volcanics, where intense quartz stockwork is associated with galena, pyrite +- sulphosalts and +- sphalerite.

Update on the Camp Creek Porphyry Drilling
Brixton completed 2,700m of drilling so far this 2021 season and is currently drilling. Hole 181 was extended from 959.8m to 1087.2m. Hole 183 was drilled from the same pad as 181 but at nearly opposite orientation and was drilled to a depth of 1336.5m depth. Hole 184 was collared 230m northwest from the collar location of holes 181 and 183. Hole 184 has a target depth of 1400m-1500m which is currently at about 1200m depth. Assays are pending for these holes and shall be released upon receipt and QAQC review.
