Brixton Metals Drills 1,885.00 g/t Ag, 4.68 g/t Au, 15.20% Cu over 0.97m within 82.00m of Sulphide Mineralization at its Hog Heaven Project
21 July 2020
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brixton Metals Corporation (TSXV: BBB) (the “Company” or “Brixton”) announces final drill results from its maiden drill program at is wholly owned Hog Heaven Project, which returned multiple significant intervals of high-grade silver, gold and copper mineralization. A total of seven holes representing 1,400.35m were drilled of HQ sized core.
High grade mineralization was encountered in all of the holes drilled.
Highlights of Hole HH20-07 and HH20-05 Main Mine Area
Drill hole HH20-07 intersected a broad 82.00m zone of sulphide mineralization for 67.09 g/t Ag, 0.73 g/t Au, 0.23% Cu (62.78m-144.78m) which includes the following:
- º 45.27m of 77.30 g/t Ag, 1.27 g/t Au, 0.41% Cu
- º 6.89m of 117.23 g/t Ag, 1.94 g/t Au, 0.28% Cu
- º 0.97m of 1,885.00 g/t Ag, 4.68 g/t Au, 15.20% Cu
Drill hole HH20-05 intersected a broad 161.43m zone of sulphide mineralization for 28.59 g/t Ag, 0.27 g/t Au (99.63-261.06) which includes the following:
º 12.30m of 159.04 g/t Ag, 0.49 g/t Au
º 0.82m of 1,285.00 g/t Ag, 2.24 g/t Au, 2.47 % Cu
Chairman and CEO of Brixton, Gary R. Thompson stated, “It’s great to see these very high-grades within the broad zones of sulphide mineralization. These results conclude our maiden drill program and has validated the great potential of the project. Based on the excellent results of our maiden drill program we are excited about the opportunity to expand sulphide mineralization at the Main Mine with further drilling along strike and at depth. In addition, we look forward to drill testing other high priority targets including the WF-Ole Hill and Martin Mine areas, later this season.”

Brixton recognizes the potential for the Hog Heaven Project to host a cluster of mineralized systems like the Main Mine area. At least four primary target areas have been identified for further drilling: Main Mine, WF, Ole Hill and Martin Mine. The project hosts strata-bound Cu-Ag, high-sulphidation Ag-Au-Cu and porphyry targets.
Drill hole HH20-06 encountered an underground working and was abandoned at 14.63m depth.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control
As a matter of procedure, the drill core were split in the field using an electric-powered core saw, bagged, and delivered to ALS Chemex Laboratories in Vancouver for analysis. In addition to the laboratory's quality control program, a rigorous on-site quality assurance and quality control program was implemented, which involved the insertion of blanks, standards and splits to ensure reliable assay results. The standards, blanks and duplicate assays were found to fall within acceptable limits, supporting the precision and accuracy of the reported results. The QAQC was conducted by an independent third-party, Mr. Scott Close, P.Geo., Principal of Ethos Geological Inc., who is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, and who reviewed and approved the information in this press release.
