ONTARIO – Since buying the suspended Langis silver mine in the Cobalt camp, Vancouver-based Brixton Metals Corp
. has been drilling and reaping the rewards of high grade assays. The company is conducting confirmation drilling and a brownfield exploration program at the site.
Drill hole LM16-03 encountered a series parallel veins and high gold grades, something not previously reported in the area. Hole LM16-03 intercepted 4.15 metres of 4.90 g/t Au and 397.00 g/t Ag from 156.05 metres, including 74.90 g/t Au and 5,236.40 g/t Ag over 0.22 metres. Also, from 179.40 metres a 3.13 metres interval returned 1,944.60 g/t Ag including 1.20 metres of 3,527.50 g/t Ag. Both mineralized veins are hosted in Archean volcanic rocks below the Nipissing diabase sill. The gold zone appears to be associated with hematite.
The Langis mine historically produced 10.4 million oz of silver. Additional information is posted at www.BrixtonMetals.com
