This program is designed to confirm historic drill results and test new targets. Based on results of this program, further drilling and IP geophysical surveys may be conducted later this year.
Brixton also completed a phase one soil-rock geochemical program at its Thorn project. A total of 981 soils and 159 rock samples were collected and submitted to ALS Minerals for analysis. The majority of samples were collected within in new area of the property which has not seen any previous exploration called the Chivas Zone. Secondary areas sampled were the Outlaw Zone, Aberlour Zone and Amarillo Creek, where follow-up sampling was conducted on encouraging gold results. Based on the results, further exploration may be conducted later this year.

The unmined zone intersected by historic drilling: 1,550.34 g/t Ag over 9.45 metres and 19,229.13 g/t Ag over 0.49 metres. The Langis project does not currently contain any mineral resources or mineral reserves.
The 28,000 hectare, 100% owned Thorn Project is located in northwestern British Columbia, Canada, approximately 105 km ENE from Juneau, AK. The Thorn project hosts a district scale Triassic to Cretaceous volcano-plutonic complex with many styles of mineralization related to porphyry and epithermal environments. Targets include sediment hosted Au-Ag, Ag-Au-Pb-Zn diatreme-breccia, Au-Ag-Cu veins; and volcanic hosted structurally controlled Au-Ag. Brixton has established a maiden inferred resource of 21.5Moz AgEq from 7.4 Mt at 89.75 g/t AgEq based on limited drilling.
