Brixton Metals Drills 6.00 metres of 4,719.33 g/t Silver and 0.33% Cobalt at Its Langis Project132 Views
September 17, 2018 – Brixton Metals Corporation (TSXV: BBB) (the “Company” or “Brixton”) is pleased to announce additional drill results from its wholly owned Langis Mine Project located in the Cobalt Camp, Ontario, Canada.
Highlights of New Drill Results at the Langis Project
- Drill hole LM18-42 intersected 6.00m of 4,719.33 g/t silver and 0.33 percent cobalt
- Drill hole LM18-44 intersected 8.00m of 813.56 g/t silver
- Drill hole LM18-39 intersected 7.90m of 802.10 g/t silver
- Drill hole LM18-45 intersected 3.00m of 1.23 percent cobalt, 43.97 g/t silver
Chairman and CEO of Brixton, Gary R. Thompson stated, “The Langis Project or Lucky Langis continues to deliver exceptional high-grade silver and cobalt mineralization. The best results from this program encountered the very high grades at shallow depths near shaft number three where we have not previously drilled. Hole 39 was successful in a 35m extension to mineralization drilled in hole 16 (news release, May 9, 2018), where 2787 g/t silver and 0.27% cobalt was drilled over 7.8m. The high grade intervals contain native silver, which occurs as fine disseminations, hairline to silver-cobaltite veinlets. The 3m of 1.23% cobalt mineralization in hole 45 was also in an area that we have not previously drilled.”

True widths cannot be determined at this time and reported widths are drilled intervals.
During 2018, the Company has drilled approximately 6,862 metres at the Langis project. This year’s drilling campaign was designed to test for additional silver and cobalt mineralization throughout the property. The drilling campaign has been very successful in identifying high grade silver and cobalt mineralization as well as broad low grade cobalt, nickel and silver mineralization.
Drillholes LM18-40 to 44, where some of the highest grade silver mineralization was encountered, were drilled around Shaft 3 Langis. The holes were designed to test for the continuity of the vein system above and below the historic workings. Drilling at Shaft 3 has been successful in intersecting the silver and cobalt mineralization near the historically mined area. Generally mineralization consisted of silver and cobalt minerals as disseminated, hairline fracture in-fill to veinlets and is hosted in a dark grey-green Huronian conglomerate as well as in Archean volcanics. Additional drilling is planned in this area in order to test for continuity and controls of the silver and cobalt vein system.
Drillhole LM18-39 was designed as a step out hole and test for extension of the high grade silver encountered in drill hole LM18-16 (7.87m of 2,787.26 g/t silver), which was previously released May 9, 2018. Hole 39 intersected silver mineralization grading 802.10 g/t silver over 7.9m which consisted of native silver mineralization as disseminated and veinlets hosted in a dark grey-green Huronian conglomerate. The mineralized vein system between hole 39 and hole 16 strikes for 35m and trends north-south. The true width and dip of the vein system is yet to be determined.

Quality Assurance & Quality Control
Sealed samples were 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. Analysis for gold was done by Fire Assay with AA finish. All other elements were analyzed by Aqua Regia Digest with ICP-AES finish. Cobalt over-limits were analyzed with Sodium Peroxide Fusion and 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 and Hudson Bay Silver-Cobalt Project
Brixton’s wholly owned Langis and Hudson Bay past producing mines are located 500km north from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The cobalt-silver mineralization occurs as steeply-moderately and in some cases shallow dipping veins and as disseminations within any of the three main rock types: Archean volcanics, Coleman Member sediments and Nipissing diabase. The Langis mine produced 10.4Moz of silver at 25 oz/t Ag and 358,340 pounds of cobalt and the Hudson Bay mine produced 6.4Moz of silver at 123 oz/t Ag and 185,570 pounds of cobalt. Historically, the Cobalt Camp produced 50M pounds of cobalt as a by-product of 500M ounces of silver production.
