Brixton Metals Reports Phase I Drilling Results from Silver and Gold Thorn Project

Brixton Metals has reported that results have been released from the 2012 phase I campaign conducted at the Thorn high-grade silver and gold project, which is situated in Northwest British Columbia.

Oban Phase One 2012 Drilling X-Section Looking North

The company targeted this year’s phase I exploration drill program at the Oban breccia zone. It drilled 13 NQ diamond holes, totaling 1,151 m. This program has aimed to validate the results from hole THN11-60 and to receive additional geological data with respect to the mineralization. These results validate the strong surface high-grade mineralization containing gold and silver at the Oban zone.

The mineralization exists in the form of semi-massive sulphosalts and sulphides in breccia matrix and dispersed veinletto crackle breccia style. Sphalerite, sulfosalt, tetrahedrite and pyrite together with less chalcopyrite and galena are the main minerals.

Hole THN12-63 was specifically collared at a height of 920 m and to a depth of 153.31 m. This hole encountered 668.17 g/t AgEq over 13.00 m and 264.29 g/t AgEq over 80.52 m. Brixton drilled the hole THN12-65 vertically to 151.18 m depth and this hole was specifically collared at a height of 917.5 m. THN12-65 encountered 769.42 g/t AgEq over 12.90 m and 296.50 g/t AgEq over 83.90 m. Hole THN12-72 returned 254.29 g/t AgEq over 53.00 m and 173.66 g/t AgEq over 104.85 m. This hole was collared at a height of 930 m.

According to Brixton Metals’ CEO and Chairman, Mr. Gary R. Thompson, the company is delighted to extend the high-grade and shallow mineralization at the Oban breccia zone. This zone stays exposed in many directions and the company intends to conduct an aggressive phase II campaign during the fall season of this year. He added that the results continue to demonstrate that high-grade silver-rich mineral deposit is present in the project.
