Brixton Metals drills 7.87 m of 2,787 g/t Ag at Langis

Brixton Metals Corp. TSX-V: BBB has released drill results from its wholly owned Langis mine project in Ontario’s Cobalt camp.

Figures associated with this news release are available on-line.

Highlights from six drill holes at the Langis project:

  • Drill hole LM18-16 intersected 7.87 metres of 2,787.26 grams per tonne silver and 0.27 per cent cobalt, including 1.00 m of 15,436 g/t silver, 1.98 per cent cobalt and 0.47 per cent nickel;
  • Drill hole LM18-20 intersected 70.65 m of 0.10 per cent nickel, 0.01 per cent cobalt and 7.07 g/t silver.

Chairman and chief executive officer of Brixton, Gary Thompson, stated: “Brixton Metals continues to deliver strong silver-cobalt results from the Cobalt camp. Drill hole LM18-16 returned a spectacular one-metre interval of 450 ounces per ton silver (15,436 g/t Ag) and 1.98 per cent cobalt, which combined is equivalent to 12.67 per cent cobalt or 537 ounces per ton silver. A broad nickel-cobalt-silver mineralized zone was discovered in the Archean basement rocks, which is up to 70 m thick. See the table and cross-section below, where holes 16, 19, 20 and 21 intersected nickel-cobalt-silver mineralization. We plan to drill more holes on the property aimed at locating a high-grade core to this broad mineralized horizon at Langis and to further extend the bonanza-grade silver-cobalt veins.”

Cobalt equivalent values (CoEq) were calculated using the formula CoEq equals $16.5 times Ag g/t 
divided by 31.104  plus $35 times per cent Co divided by 100 times 2,204.63 plus $5.50 times per 
cent Ni divided by 100 times 2,204.63 divided by $35 divided by 2,204.63 times 100. This method 
assumes full metal recoveries. 
Silver equivalent values (AgEq) were calculated using the formula AgEq equals $16.5 times Ag g/t 
divided by 31.104 plus $35 times per cent Co divided by 100 times 2,204.63 plus $5.50 times per 
cent Ni divided by 100 times 2,204.63 divided by $16.5 times 31.104. Metal prices used in this 
calculation include: $16.5 per ounce for silver, $5.5 per pound for nickel and $35 per pound for 
cobalt. This method assumes full metal recoveries. True width cannot be determined at this time 
and reported widths are drilled intervals.
Hole LM18-17 encountered underground workings and was abandoned. Results from eight additional 
holes are pending. True widths have not been determined at this time.

Core descriptions

LM-18-16 (159.56 m to 160.56 m): Mineralization consists of smaltite-native-silver-cobaltite multicentimetre-scale veins and veinlets plus or minus pink quartz calcite veinlets which crosscut Huronian conglomerate. Very fine disseminated cobalt minerals and native silver are present in this interval.

Quality assurance and quality control

Sealed samples were shipped by the company geologists to ALS Minerals’ preparation lab in Sudbury, Ont. ALS Minerals’ laboratories are registered to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 17025 accreditations for laboratory procedures. Blank, duplicate and certified reference materials were inserted into the sample stream. Analysis for gold was done by fire assay with AA finish. All other elements were analyzed by aqua regia digestion with ICP-AES finish. Cobalt overlimits were analyzed with sodium peroxide fusion and AES finish. Silver overlimits were analyzed by fire assay with gravimetric finish. Base metal overlimits were analyzed with aqua regia digestion and AES finish.

About the Langis and Hudson Bay silver-cobalt project

Brixton’s wholly owned Langis and Hudson Bay past-producing mines are located 500 kilometres north from Toronto, Ont. The cobalt-silver mineralization occurs as steeply/moderately and in some cases shallow-dipping veins and as disseminations within any of the three main rock types: Archean volcanics, Coleman member sediments and Nipissing diabase. The Langis mine produced 10.4 million ounces of silver at 25 ounces per ton Ag and 358,340 pounds of cobalt, and the Hudson Bay mine produced 6.4 million oz of silver at 123 oz/t Ag and 185,570 pounds of cobalt. Historically, the Cobalt camp produced 50 million pounds of cobalt as a byproduct of 500 million ounces of silver production.
