VANCOUVER, BC—(Marketwired – January 09, 2018) – Brixton Metals Corporation (TSX VENTURE: BBB) (the “âCompanyâ” or “âBrixtonâ”) is pleased to announce that, following the completion of its $3 million private placement, the Company has commenced drilling at its Langis and Hudson Bay projects located in the Cobalt Camp of Ontario, Canada. Drilling is currently underway and is focusing on high grade cobalt and silver targets as extension of the underground workings and newly identified structural targets. The Company is planning to drill 10,000 to 15,000 metres on the two brownfield mine projects combined.
- Historically the Langis Mine produced 0.36M pounds of cobalt and 10.4Moz silver to depths of 150 metres;
- Historically the Hudson Bay Mine produced 0.186M pounds of cobalt and 6.4Moz of silver to depths of only 60 metres;
- Assays from 4 samples in 2017 returned 10 to 16 percent cobalt and 2 to 18 percent silver âas disclosed in Brixton's News Release dated August 17, 2017;
- Past production was focused on high grade silver veins and the high–cobalt low–silver veins that were encountered underground, and were not mined in many areas of the Langis mine;
- The project has excellent local infrastructure; year–round road access, close proximity to power, railway, gasâ–âpipeline, small scale mills, a refinery and assay lab.
Chairman and CEO of Brixton Metals, Gary R. Thompson stated, “We believe that these high potential brownfield projects provide a very interesting opportunity for shareholders of Brixton to benefit from the strong demand for battery metals. The Company anticipates a good amount of news flow in the coming months from its activities.”
