Brixton Metals drills 3m of 647 g/t Ag including 1m of 1,845 g/t Ag at Langis Project near Cobalt

Dec 9, 2020

Brixton Metals Corporation is pleased to announce the initial drill results from its fall/winter silver exploration program on the Langis Mine Project near Cobalt. The company has received assays for the first 17 holes totaling 1624m of NQ size core. Approximately 6,000m of the 20,000m planned fall/winter drilling campaign have been completed. Drill holes follow a fan-type array with depths ranging from 52.5m to 148.4m across the main trend.


  • Hole LM20-93 intercepted three mineralized intervals near surface, including:

         • 6m of 193 g/t Ag from 2.6m; including 3m of 351 g/t Ag, including 1m of 990 g/t Ag
         • 4m of 127 g/t Ag from 17.6m, including 2m of 238 g/t Ag
         • 3m of 647 g/t Ag from 32.6m including 1m of 1845 g/t Ag
  • LM20-96 returned 7m of 222.9 g/t Ag including 4m of 360 g/t Ag and 1m of 692 g/t Ag
  • LM20-102 intercepted 4m of 333 g/t Ag including 1m of 904 g/t Ag, 0.2% Co

Chairman and CEO of Brixton, Gary R. Thompson stated, “It is encouraging to see the high-grade silver and cobalt mineralization over meaningful intervals above the historic workings. Based on the current gold/silver ratio of 75:1, the lower interval in hole LM20-93 of 3m of 647 g/t Ag is equivalent to 8.6 g/t Au. Drilling is ongoing as we work toward a maiden resource at Langis.”

These drilling results continue to support the existence of new, shallow, high-grade silver-cobalt mineralization around the Shaft 3 area. Historical drilling around the Shaft 3 area is very limited and mostly underground. Silver-cobalt mineralization was first drilled by the Company in 2018 and has continued to bring encouraging results from subsequent drilling campaigns. “Defining and adding a new silver-cobalt zone could significantly increase the Langis silver resource potential,” said Antonio Celis, Senior Geologist and QP for Brixton Metals.
