VANCOUVER – Brixton Metals Corp. [BBB-TSXV; BBBXF-OTCQB] reported its first drill hole results from the Camp Creek copper-gold-silver-molybdenum porphyry target on its wholly owned Thorn project located in northwestern British Columbia. The Thorn project is located within the Taku River Tlingit and Tahltan First Nation’s traditional territory.

Highlights include Hole THN22-201 that yielded 967.71 metres of 0.40% CuEq (copper equivalent), including 492.71 metres of 0.60% CuEq, including 365.00 metres of 0.70% CuEq, including 235.91 metres of 0.80% CuEq, including 150.00 metres of 0.92% CuEq, including 128.00 metres of 0.94% CuEq and including 40.00 metres of 1.02% CuEq. The copper dominant porphyry mineralization remains wide open including at depth

Gary Thompson, Chairman and CEO, stated, “We are encouraged by these results which supports our belief that the Camp Creek Target is a large Cu-Au-Ag-Mo porphyry system with a 1km by 2km area which remains largely untested. The XRF data that we are collecting on the core and soils has been an invaluable tool as a real time proxy for copper grades for drill hole planning and new porphyry target generation.”

Vice President of Exploration, Christina Anstey, stated, “Hole 201 has generated the highest copper grades encountered on the Camp Creek Porphyry Target to date. The mineralization remains open in several directions. While we have yet to tap the higher-grade core of the porphyry, we are having success with meaningful step outs and starting to demonstrate the large scale of this system.”

The objective of hole THN22-201 was to reach a depth of 1,500 metres between the 2021 holes THN21-183 and THN21-184, where both holes ended in increasing copper grades downhole at 1,336 metres and 1,298 metres respectively. However, due to poor ground conditions hole THN22-201 was terminated at 1,302.71 metres.

Holes THN22-200 and THN22-202 (assays pending) were from the same pad located 284m southwest from collars THN21-184 and THN22-201. These two holes were drilled as pilot holes to the limits of the drill with the objective of using the larger drill to re-enter the hole and drill deeper if warranted. Hole 200 did not return any significant results and was drilled to a depth of 630 metres.

Hole THN22-213 was located 235 metres west-southwest from the collar for holes 201 and 184. Hole 213 was drilled to a depth of 1,243 metres which ended in similar porphyry mineralization hosted in Porphyry X and hornfels sediments with assays pending.

The objective of further drilling is to test for the high-grade core of the Camp Creek Porphyry. Currently, the company is drilling hole THN22-221 which is collared 276 metres northeast from the collar for holes 201-184.

To date Brixton’s field crews have acquired 704 soils and 315 rock samples collectively from the Trapper, Metla, Val and Outlaw Targets.

Brixton Metals wholly owns four exploration projects: Brixton’s flagship Thorn copper-gold-silver-molybdenum  Project, the Atlin Goldfields Projects (under option to Pacific Bay Minerals Ltd. [PBM-TSXV; PBMFF-OTC]) located in NW BC, the Langis-HudBay silver-cobalt-nickel project in Ontario, and the Hog Heaven silver-gold-copper Project in NW Montana, USA (under option to Ivanhoe Electric Inc. [IE-TSX, NYSE American]).
