Brixton Unveils Thorn Exploration Plans for 2019

- May 14th, 2019

Brixton Metals has announced this year’s exploration plans for its Thorn project, which are set to focus on two large-scale copper porphyry targets.

Brixton Metals (TSXV:BBB,OTCQB:BBBXF) has announced this year’s exploration plans for its Thorn project in British Columbia, which are set to focus on two large-scale copper porphyry targets.

Highlights from the press release are as follows:

Phase 1 Highlights

  • Planned phase one drilling of a 1,000 metre hole at the Oban diatreme breccia, which is part of the Camp Creek copper corridor where hole 85 returned 30 metres of 1.18 percent copper and hole 119 ended in 0.53 percent copper at 383 metres depth. True width of the above copper mineralization interval is unknown at this time.

  • The Camp Creek copper corridor trends northeast for 1.5 kilometres (Oban to Glenfiddich zones) and represents a high-level, high sulphidation mineralized system interpreted to be indicative of a blind porphyry. Surface rock chip and grab samples from the Camp Creek trend have returned copper grades up to 32.6 percent. These are select samples and are not representative of the mineralization hosted on the property.

Phase 2 Highlights

  • The proposed phase two drilling will focus on the Chivas copper porphyry target which has the following characteristics:

    • a potential target for tier one metal endowment;

    • a greater than 5 square kilometer Cu-Au-Mo-in-soil anomaly

    • metal ratios of molybdenum to arsenic and silver to gold in soils and rocks that show patterns which are consistent with known porphyry systems;

    • porphyry style veins and alteration which were intersected in 2017 drilling;

    • increased chalcopyrite to pyrite ratio vectors to the Chivas porphyry.

Gary R. Thompson, Brixton Metals Chairman and CEO, commented:

“We are excited to be drilling at Thorn this season and now with a copper porphyry focus we believe that we can start to unlock the potential of the district scale property. Phase one drilling is anticipated to begin early June and it should take about 2 weeks to complete the deep core hole. Upon completion of the deep hole at the Oban diatreme we plan to shift our focus to drilling at the Atlin Goldfields project while we await assay results from Thorn. Subject to additional funding, we plan to drill five to eight holes on the Chivas copper porphyry target at Thorn to depths of 300 to 500 metres.”
