Brixton (BBB) has drilled 19.25 g/t gold over 11 m within 187.5 m of 1.6 g/t gold on its Thorn Project in B.C.
The results stem from the maiden drill program at the project’s Trapper Gold Target. They represent the first three of fifteen shallow holes drilled in 2021 for a total of 3,107.34 m.
Trapper is a deep-rooted multi-phase gold porphyry system where rock grab samples have returned up to 135 g/t gold. The area also contains two high-grade copper showings.
Brixton has identified 14 copper-gold-silver exploration targets within the project’s 80 km mineralized trend.
Drill highlights from the Trapper Target
“The results from the first few holes into the Trapper Target are very encouraging. We believe that based on the geology, mineralization and alteration, we are in an epithermal to the gold-porphyry system with evidence for low-sulphidation and high-sulphidation overprints. We are excited to see some very high grades within broad, low-grade intervals.
We are seeing precious and base-metal mineralization within both dominant lithologies in the area, but we believe that the diorite is the source of this mineralization. Hole THN21-186 intercepted this lithology, and we are waiting on assays from several other holes that had broad intercepts of the diorite with associated visible gold.
There is plenty of room for expansion of gold mineralization in drilling given the large footprint of the geochemical signature of the target which has been expanded to a 4 km strike by up to 1.5 km in width. Trapper forms the southern 4 km portion of an 11 km NW-SE trending gold geochemical anomaly.”
Gary R. Thompson, Brixton’s Chairman and CEO added,
“The results from the maiden exploration program at the Trapper Target is a game-changer for the project. The Trapper Gold Target has significant scale potential with excellent grades. We are excited to see the rest of the assays from the 2021 exploration program and to complete all of our other ongoing, scientific studies, including age dating, so we can plan the next round of drilling at the Trapper Target in the spring of 2022.”
Brixton is focused on mining projects in Canada and the United States.
