VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Brixton Metals Company (the “Firm“) (TSXV: BBB) (OTCQB: BBBXF) is happy to announce that it has entered into a purchase order settlement to accumulate a 100% curiosity within the Metla mineral declare group of 6,413 hectares from Stuhini Exploration Ltd., TSXV:STU (“Stuhini”) for consideration of 1,200,000 frequent shares of Brixton and CAD $42,000 in money (topic to the acceptance of the TSX Enterprise Alternate). The Metla claims shall be topic to a 1.0% internet smelter royalty curiosity in favour of Stuhini.
Chairman and CEO of Brixton Metals, Gary R. Thompson said, “We’re completely happy to have reached an settlement with Stuhini on this excessive mineral potential tenure as we proceed to consolidate the Thorn mission and rework it into a significant 70 km mineralized development. These Metla claims add a further 7 km to this main mineralized development. Because of retreating glaciers, Stuhini geologists found new effectively mineralized porphyry float rocks. These samples proven beneath, symbolize the middle of a porphyry system by the potassic alteration and bornite mineralization. We imagine that the supply of those rock samples is close by. The hunt is now on to find the in situ materials, by soil-rock geochemistry, radiometrics and cell MT geophysical surveys. The Metla floor gives an thrilling new goal space throughout the Thorn Venture.”

Concerning the Metla Venture
Gold mineralization was first found on the Metla property in 1957. Comply with up work in 1988 recognized a 1200 metre lengthy by 800 metre extensive mineralized boulder prepare with disseminated to huge sulphide that assayed as much as 67 grams per tonne gold. In 1989, trenching by Cominco Ltd. (“Cominco”) returned 4.6 g/t Au throughout 9 meters. Retreating glaciers have uncovered land up-ice from early discoveries by Cominco prospectors. In 2019, Stuhini geologists found porphyry fashion boulders with bornite and chalcocite mineralization with potassic alteration returning grades as much as 4.7% Copper and 1.Eight g/t Au, 31g/t Ag, 0.Three g/t Pd from pattern# ALW19-004, see Figures beneath.

Metla Venture Historical past
In 1957, Cominco carried out the primary recorded work at Metla Creek, when exploration crews found an incidence of pyrite, sphalerite and galena which assayed 11.Zero g/t gold, 45.2 g/t silver, 0.1 % copper, 1.0% zinc, and 0.2 % lead, close to the toe of an icefield.
Within the 1980’s, Chevron Canada Restricted carried out a treasured metallic reconnaissance exploration program that included contour soil sampling and heavy mineral stream sediment sampling all through the area. This work in the end result in the invention of the Golden Bear gold mine 25km to the south of the Metla property. Chevron prospected and ran contour soil strains on the Rod prospect, now simply inside tenure 510284 on the southeast comer of the Metla property. The work by Chevron recognized quite a few coincident gold-arsenic-antimony-silver soil anomalies with values as much as 8,400 and better than 10,000 ppb gold. One pattern assayed 10.Three g/t gold (pattern KN2-8).
In 1988, Cominco staked the Metla space when it was famous that the ice subject had retreated over 900 meters in the course of the previous 31 years, subsequently revealing widespread polymetallic sulfide mineralization. Through the subsequent three subject seasons, Cominco established a 20 line-km grid, drilled, blasted and sampled 18 bedrock trenches, carried out detailed bedrock and boulder prepare mapping and sampling, a mineralogical examine, floor geophysical surveys (16.Three line-km. of HLEM and 14.1 line km. of floor magnetics) and a few heavy mineral sampling (Mawer, 1988, 1989 & 1990).
In 1990 Cominco produced a extremely detailed 1:500 scale geology and pattern compilation map of the Metla Creek space and picked up over 400 rock samples. Gold-silver-zinc-lead-copper mineralization was recognized inside carbonate hydrothermal breccia and argillite-hosted bedding parallel silicified breccias and pyritic stringers in six totally different areas alongside a hall 600 meters extensive and 1,200 meters lengthy. Outcomes from a complete of 339 glacial float boulder samples starting from <10 ppb gold to 68,000 ppb gold, had a median of 4.47 g/t gold. 5 bedrock areas internet hosting important gold and base metallic mineralization have been recognized, together with Space D the place a 9.Zero meter chip pattern produced a weighted common of 4.70 g/t gold.
In 1991, Galico Sources Ltd., optioned the Metla property and from a base camp at Trapper Lake, mixed magnetic, EM and VLF (Aerodat Ltd.) and detailed petrographic examine and 10 diamond drill holes totaling 1,075.Zero meters on the property (Payne, 1991). Sadly, little of the Galico work is accessible; archived knowledge was discarded and no evaluation reviews aside from the airborne survey (Dvorak, 1991) have been filed both with the BC authorities or Cominco.
In 2000, curiosity within the area was renewed when Rimfire Minerals Company optioned the Thorn property situated 19km to the northwest of Metla and started exploration on a excessive sulphidation mannequin for the mineralization.
The unique Cominco Metla declare lapsed in 2001 and was restaked by Aspinall and Dawson within the spring of 2002. A short prospecting program was accomplished by Aspinall within the 2002 subject season.
In 2004, Solomon Sources Restricted optioned the Metla property and compiled the Chevron and Cominco knowledge, assayed and produced polished samples from a set of hand specimens collected by Mr. Tom Schroeter of the B. C. Geological Survey.
In 2005, Barrick Gold Ltd. fashioned the Kismit Joint Enterprise with Rimfire Minerals Company (proprietor of the Thorn Property throughout that point) and staked a big land bundle measuring roughly 70 km. (NW-SE) by a median of 18 km extensive which encompassed the Thorn, Metla and different prospects within the newly acknowledged Late Cretaceous metallogenic belt.
In 2006, Indico Applied sciences Ltd collected 129 rock samples and 10 samples for petrographic evaluation. Satellite tv for pc photos at 1:2000 and 1:5000 scale have been commissioned for the needs of geological mapping.
In 2008, the Aspinall-Dawson partnership collected a complete of 90 soils, 10 silts, 11 float and eight seize samples.
In 2011, Ocean Park Ventures (now Kodiak Copper Corp.) collected 76 rock samples as 25 float and 51 seize samples. Samples have been collected inside a Four sq. kilometre space within the glacial valley of the retreating Metla glacier.
In 2017, Stuhini Exploration acquired the Metla Venture and carried out a small magnetic geophysical survey and picked up 143 rock samples. Highlights returned 21.Three g/t Au, 39 g/t Ag, 2.18% Cu from pattern 1892554.
In 2018, Stuhini obtained drill permits, carried out 419 line kilometers of airbourne VTEM geophysical survey, constructed a brand new camp and picked up 34 rocks samples. Highlights embrace 9 samples returning gold values better than 0.25 g/t with a most of 9.96 g/t; 9 samples returning silver values better than Eight g/t with a most of 45.5 g/t; 11 samples returning copper values better than 300 ppm with a most of 3284 ppm. Assays of as much as 3441 ppm lead and 6.33% zinc have additionally been reported.
