Britxton Metals (TSXv:BBB, OTCQB:BBBXF, GR:8BX1) are advancing three projects in Canada and one in Montana in the US.
The first, the company’s flagship Thorn property, lies on the northern tip of the world-famous Golden Triangle zone of British Columbia, and hosts several copper-gold-silver-molybdenum mineralisation styles related to porphyry, epithermal and sediment-hosted environments. Thorn is a large and generally under-explored 2,618 km2 claim group, which includes an 80 km gold megatrend hosting multiple targets, with drilling returning high grades and visible gold in multiple drill cores. The copper potential of the property is emphasised by the fact that three drill intercepts obtained by the company since 2019, all hundreds of metres in length, ranked in the top 20 recent intercepts for copper globally. The company plans to drill 15,000 to 20,000 m at Thorn in 2022.
Brixton’s other properties also have significant potential. The Hog Heaven Ag-Au-Cu project in Montana is a joint venture with High Power Exploration, and contains past producing mines that produced 6.7 million ounces of silver plus gold, copper and lead.
With the Langis-Hudson Bat project, covering two claim blocks in Ontario, Brixton is targeting silver-cobalt-nickel mineralisation proven by major historica; mining efforts which produced 4 million ounces of silver and over 540,000 lbs. of cobalt. With its location in the Cobalt Mining Camp, this project enjoys year-round access and a wide variety of vital services nearby, including assaying and mill facilities.
Finally, the Atlin Goldfields project lies in a prolific gold district of British Columbia that is known for its placer deposits. Brixton has realised that the sharp gold nuggets characteristic of these deposits must have a nearby hard rock source, and has targeted their acquisitions in the area accordingly. The Atlin project includes the area covered by a historical 2009 resource estimate on the Yellowjacket Mine, which returned an inferred resource of 24,000 ounces at an average of 5.8 g/t, plus much more highly prospective ground in a location with huge potential.
