The Thorn Project hosts a district-scale, Triassic to Eocene, volcano-plutonic complex and related sedimentary units with several styles of mineralization related to porphyry and epithermal environments.
The earliest known work on the Thorn property was carried-out by Cominco in 1952, followed by Kennco in 1959, and Chevron Minerals in the 1980’s.
Brixton acquired the Thorn property in 2009 and began actively exploring in 2011. Since the original Thorn property acquisition, Brixton has continued to amalgamate claims within the region, which has produced a 2,867 km2 land package covering a district-scale, 80km Cu-Au-Ag-Mo porphyry trend.
Over 315 holes have been collared on the property since 1952, totaling 74,500 meters. Brixton Metals has drilled over 58,000 meters since 2011. This work has been guided by approximately 29,000 soil samples, 9,300 rock samples and 9,300 stream sediment samples collected across the property.
Thorn is relatively accessible from Vancouver. A commercial flight to Whitehorse, Yukon departing in the morning allows for transfer to a fixed wing aircraft, which can land on the property airstrip by early afternoon. Access around the property is supported by helicopter from the well-established Thorn Camp.
