Brixton Metals Drills 8m of 860 g/t Silver, 0.17% Cobalt within 31m of 272 g/t Ag, 0.05% Co at its Langis Project, Ontario
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Brixton Metals Corporation (TSXV: BBB) (OTCQB: BBBXF) (the “Company” or “Brixton”) is pleased to announce further high-grade silver results from its fall/winter exploration program at its wholly owned Langis Project located in the Cobalt Camp of Ontario, Canada. This news release includes holes LM-21-214 to LM-21-219 and is a total of 1036.3m of NQ size core from the Shaft 6 area at the Langis Project.
- LM-21-219 drilled 31m of 272 g/t Silver, 0.05% Cobalt from 117.8m depth
- Including 8m 860 g/t Silver, 0.17% Cobalt
- Including 4m of 1186 g/t Silver, 0.28% Cobalt
- LM-21-214 drilled 8m of 370 g/t Silver, 0.02% Cobalt from 118.1m depth
- including 1m of 1345 g/t Silver, 0.04% Cobalt
Chairman and CEO of Brixton, Gary R. Thompson stated, “These recent assay results from hole 219 are some of the most significant silver-cobalt mineralization drilled to date at the Langis Project. We have several more batches of assays yet to come in from the winter program, which totaled 18,583.35m. Once we digest all of the new drilling information, we will plan the next steps for the project.”

Quality Assurance & Quality Control
Diamond drill holes were drilled with NQ size core. Samples were collected using 1m average sample length. Three quality control samples (one blank, one standard and one duplicate) were inserted into each batch of 20 samples. The drill core was cut in half and put in batches, sealed and shipped by the Company geologists to ALS Minerals preparation lab in Sudbury, Ontario. ALS Minerals Laboratories are registered to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 17025 accreditations for laboratory procedures. Blank, duplicate and certified reference materials were inserted into the sample stream. All elements were analyzed by Aqua Regia Digest with ICP-AES finish. Silver over-limits were analyzed by fire assay with gravimetric finish. Base metal over-limits were analyzed with Aqua Regia Digest and AES finish. A copy of the QAQC protocols can be viewed at the Company’s website.
About the Langis Mine Project
Brixton’s wholly owned Langis Mine Project is a past producing mine located 500km north from Toronto, Ontario, Canada just north from the northern end of Lake Temiskaming with excellent infrastructure. The silver mineralization occurs as native silver and within steeply-moderately and in some cases shallow dipping veins, veinlets and as disseminations, rosettes and fracture infill and can be associated with calcite, hematite, pyrite, cobaltite, chalcopyrite, niccolite and gold. Mineralization is hosted within any of the three main rock types: Archean volcanics and metasediments, Coleman Member sediments and Nipissing diabase. The Langis Mine produced 10.6Moz of silver at 25 opt Ag and 358,340 pounds of cobalt. Historically, the combined mines in the Cobalt Camp produced over 550 million ounces of silver with 30-50 million pounds of cobalt as a by-product.
