Brixton Metals Corp. [BBB-TSXV; BBBXF-OTCQB] reported new assay results from additional surface rock samples on the Trapper Target at the 100%-owned Thorn Project, located in northwestern British Columbia. The royalty free Trapper Target is one of Brixton’s 14 currently recognized copper-gold-silver targets.

Highlights included rock grab sample D131206 that assayed 135.5 g/t gold and 172 g/t silver, six rock grab samples returned greater than 10 g/t gold and four rock grab samples yielded greater than 1% copper. Refer to company press release for complete sample results.

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 gold, 10 samples greater than 10.0 g/t gold with a high of 135.5 g/t gold. Ten samples have returned greater than 1% copper, with a high of 5.1% copper.

The Trapper Gold Target is located about 7 km SE from the Camp Creek Target and 95 km ENE from Juneau, Alaska. The Trapper Target represents a volcanic and intrusive hosted gold target where soil and rock sampling and limited drilling have identified a multi-kilometre long northwest-trending gold anomaly.Rocks collected are select grab samples of mineralized outcrops within the Trapper Target area and do not represent the entire target. The soils and remaining rock sample results are pending.

In 2021, Brixton has completed 14 drill holes between 100-300 metres in 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, 42 drill holes were completed, totaling 8,581 metres, where drill hole TG11-11 returned 34 metres of 1.7 g/t gold including 0.41 metres of 92.8 g/t gold with visible gold.
