Brixton Metals samples 6,160 g/t Silver and cobalt at Langis Project near Cobalt

Oct 5, 2020

Brixton Metals Corporation is pleased to provide an update on exploration activities at its wholly-owned Langis Silver Project near Cobalt.  During 2018 and early in 2020, Brixton drilled very high-grade, native silver over considerable widths near the historical shaft #3 of the Langis Project. The surface expression of these native silver veins was achieved through overburden removal in September 2020.


  • Bonanza grade silver-cobalt veins were exposed at surface returning 0.4m trenching of 3,140 g/t silver, 10.15% cobalt, 0.58% nickel
  • Grab samples of the native silver veins returned 6,160 g/t silver and 16.95% cobalt, >1% nickel

Chairman and CEO of Brixton Metals, Gary R. Thompson stated, “The results of this year’s surface work, uncovering native silver at surface, gives us the confidence to pursue a high-grade, near-surface resource at Langis. Brixton has demonstrated through drilling that significant silver mineralization remains at Langis. Native silver mineralization occurs as silver-cobalt veins, fracture-filled veinlets, fine disseminations and fracture-filled rosettes. Silver mineralization also occurs as argentite (AgS) +- cobaltite (CoAsS). Our plan is to conduct 15,000m to 20,000m of shallow drilling at Langis over the winter months with the goal of producing a maiden NI-43-101 compliant silver resource in 2021.”

The focus of the drilling is to expand on the known high-grade silver intercepts located close to surface and adjacent to underground workings at proximity of Shaft # 3 and Shaft # 6.

About Langis
The Langis Project (past producer of high-grade silver) is located near Cobalt in eastern Ontario, 15 km north of Temiskaming Shores and 500 km north of Toronto. Highway 65 runs through the property and many established secondary roads provide year-round access. Power, railways, mills, a permitted refinery, and assay lab are located at or near the site. The Langis Project represents a unique opportunity in a silver district that is underexplored using modern techniques. New discovery potential is high, and a strong possibility exists to generate mineral resources from extensions to historical workings and new exploration. 2018 drilling hit new, high grade silver-cobalt: 6m of 4719 g/t silver and 3m of 1.23% cobalt. Historically, the Langis Mine produced over 10.4 Moz Ag with a recovered grade of approximately 25 oz/t from shallow depths, and 358,340 lbs of cobalt.
