Brixton Metals Corporation announced the second round of drill results from its fall/winter exploration program at the Langis Mine Project located in the Cobalt Camp of Ontario. The assays for this round are from 14 holes totaling 1673.85m of NQ size core. Drill holes follow a fan-type array with depths ranging from 55m to 176m across the Shaft 3 trend. Brixton Metals Chairman and CEO Mr Gary R Thompson said “We continue to be pleased with the results from our on-going 20,000m drill program at Langis. Drilling continues to generate high-grade near-surface results that support the potential maiden resource.”
Hole LM-20-111 intercepted 4m of 370 g/t Ag from 18m, including 1m of 1080 g/t Ag and
1m of 7% Cu, 27.6 g/t Ag, 0.03% Co from 113m
LM-20-113 intercepted 4m of 366 g/t Ag including 1m of 1015 g/t Ag, 0.35% Co
Hole LM-20-110 intercepted 4m of 196.6g/t Ag from 3.6m, including 1m of 661 g/t Ag
The Langis Mine (past producer of high-grade silver) Project is located near Cobalt in eastern Ontario, 15 km north of Temiskaming Shores and 500 km north of Toronto. Highway 65 runs through the property and many established secondary roads provide year-round access. Power, railways, mills, a permitted refinery, and assay lab are located at or near the site.
The Langis Project represents a unique opportunity in a silver district that is underexplored using modern techniques. New discovery potential is high, and a strong possibility exists to generate mineral resources from extensions to historical workings and new exploration. 2018 drilling hit new high grade silver-cobalt: 6m of 4719 g/t silver and 3m of 1.23% Cobalt
Historically, the Langis Mine produced over 10.4 Moz Ag with a recovered grade of approximately 25 oz/t from shallow depths, and 358,340 lbs of cobalt. (see production history)
