Brixton Metals Corporation (TSXV: BBB, OTCQB: BBBXF) has obtained additional promising assay results from its maiden drill programme at the Trapper Gold Target on the Thorn Project in British Columbia, Canada.
The latest results represent six of 15 shallow drill holes, with assays awaited for the remaining six holes.
The Trapper Target is one of 14 Cu-Au-Ag exploration targets identified with the 80km mineralised trend within the wholly owned 2600 square km Thorn Project, located in Northwestern BC.
- Hole THN21-195 returned 31.00m of 2.0 g/t Au within 84.0m of 1.1 g/t Au all within a broader zone of 146m of 0.74 g/t Au
- The Trapper Gold Target represents a new gold target with significant scale potential
“Our recent results from Trapper continue to prove the gold endowment of the target,” said Christina Anstey, Vice President of Exploration.
“We are seeing high-grade gold over broad intervals within the diorite in multiple holes, including our best gold numbers to date of 19.25 g/t Au over 11m, see news release dated November 12, 2021.
“Encouragingly, we are also seeing well-mineralised zones within the volcanic country rock, featuring visible gold hosted in coarse quartz-calcite-pyrite-sphalerite veins.
“The variety of mineralisation styles, metal assemblages and host rocks have us very excited about the potential of the Trapper target.”
About the Trapper Gold Target
The geochemical footprint for the Trapper Gold Target was expanded in 2021 to 4km by 1.5km. The Trapper Target represents a volcanic and intrusive hosted gold target. Rock samples have returned up to 135 g/t Au, with gold mineralisation in several styles: within base metal-veins (sphalerite-galena-pyrite-chalcopyrite); quartz-stockwork; sulphosalt-pyrite veinlets and as disseminations within the Cretaceous diorite intrusive.
In 2021, Brixton completed 15 drill holes for a total 3107.34m, airborne MMT geophysics, and extensive soil and rock sampling. Broad intervals of gold mineralization in shallow drilling as was released November 12, 2021 where hole 186 retuned 139m of 2.14 g/t Au and visible gold was identified in outcrop along Inlaw Creek.
In addition, two new high-grade copper-gold showings were discovered within the Trapper target area this season. In 2011, forty-two drill holes were completed, totalling 8581m, where drill hole TG11-11 returned 32.64m of 1.78 g/t Au including 0.41m of 92.8 g/t Au with visible gold. The Trapper Target is royalty free and is one of 14 mineralized targets areas on the wholly owned Thorn Project.
