Brixton Metals Drills 13.9m of 435 g/t Ag, 0.96 g/t Au in Hole #1 and 7.7m of 492 g/t Ag, 2.1 g/t Au in Hole #3 at its Hog Heaven Project

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brixton Metals Corporation (TSXV: BBB) (the “Company” or “Brixton”) announces its second set of results from its maiden drill program at its wholly owned Hog Heaven Project, which returned multiple significant intervals of high-grade silver and gold mineralization. A total of seven holes representing 1,400.35m were drilled of HQ sized core.

Chairman and CEO of Brixton, Gary R. Thompson stated, “We are excited to see more high grades within broader mineralized intervals at the Hog Heaven Project. We are looking forward to the balance of the maiden drill results as we plan for the Phase II exploration program at the Hog Heaven Project, where we hope to follow-up these results and test the new targets identified by our 2020 soil sampling program.”

The purpose of this drilling program was to validate historical results from the 1970’s and 1980’s at the Main Mine area. Massive sulphide mineralization was encountered in all of the holes drilled.

Historically, limited soil geochemical work was completed on the project. The plots for Ag, Au, Cu, Pb, Zn (see link below) are a combination of the 964 soils that Brixton collected in May 2020 and historic work where data is available. Note that we do not have soil geochemical data over several target areas including the Main Mine and Martin Mines targets. The gold anomaly of greater than 100 ppb Au at Ole Hill is 500m by 750m and open ended. Additional soil programs are planned to expand on this data. The precious and base metal geochemical data suggests that we are dealing with a large mineralized system and that further soil sampling and follow-up drilling is warranted.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

As a matter of procedure, the mineralized intervals of drill core were split in the field using an electric-powered core saw, bagged, and delivered to ALS Chemex Laboratories in Vancouver for analysis.  In addition to the laboratory's quality control program, a rigorous on-site quality assurance and quality control program was implemented, which involved the insertion of blanks, standards and splits to ensure reliable assay results.
