Christina Anstey, Vice President of Exploration, stated, “These results include the highest gold values sampled by Brixton on the Thorn property in company history. We continue to expand the footprint of this gold-silver-copper system and have been pleased to confirm high grades at surface with shallow visible gold mineralization in drilling. We are eagerly awaiting assay results from Brixton’s maiden drill program at Trapper.”

For 2021, a total of 392 rock samples and 394 soil samples have been collected at the Trapper Target. A total of 207 rock sample assays have now been received and results from 10 samples are reported herein. Sampling at Trapper this season has returned 33 samples greater than 1.0 g/t Au, 10 samples greater than 10.0 g/t Au with a high of 135.5 g/t Au. Ten samples have returned greater than 1% Cu, with a high of 5.1% Cu.

Rock samples were prepared by ALS Minerals preparation facility in Whitehorse, YT and assayed at ALS Laboratory Facilities in North Vancouver, British Columbia. ALS Minerals Laboratories is registered to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 17025 accreditations for laboratory procedures. Samples were analyzed for gold by fire assay with an atomic absorption finish, whereas Ag, Pb, Cu and Zn and 48 additional elements were analyzed using four acid digestion with an ICP-MS finish. 

About the Trapper Gold Target

The Trapper Gold Target is located about 7km SE from the Camp Creek Target and 95km ENE from Juneau, Alaska. The Trapper Target is royalty free and is one of 14 mineralized targets on the wholly owned Thorn Project. The Trapper Target represents a volcanic and intrusive hosted gold target where soil and rock sampling and limited drilling have identified a multi-kilometer long northwest-trending gold anomaly. In 2021, Brixton has completed 14 drill holes between 100-300m depth, airborne geophysics, and extensive soil and rock sampling. Highlights for the year include visible gold identified in shallow drilling and outcrop along with the discovery of two new high-grade copper showings. Additionally, a Mobile MT geophysical survey that was flown in 2021 has identified a deep-seated resistivity/conductivity anomaly associated with the target. In 2011, forty-two drill holes were completed, totaling 8581m, where drill hole TG11-11 returned 34m of 1.7 g/t Au including 0.41m of 92.8 g/t Au with visible gold.
