Brixton Metals Completes Phase One, 2012 Drilling At the Thorn Project09:00 EDT Wednesday, July 18, 2012VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 18, 2012) - Brixton Metals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:BBB) (the "Company" or "Brixton") is pleased to announce the completion of the phase one, 2012 drill program at its polymetallic Thorn Ag, Au, Pb, Zn, Cu project located in Northwestern British Columbia.Exploration ActivityExploration drilling was focused at the porphyry related Oban Breccia Zone. The phase one, 2012 program included 13 NQ size core holes ranging in depth from 30m to 153m, for a total of 1,151m. The objectives of this program were to confirm the results from hole THN11-60 which returned 95.08m of 904g/t AgEq at surface (1.71g/t Au, 628.30g/t Ag, 3.31% Pb and 2.39% Zn, 0.12% Cu) and to obtain further information regarding the mineralization, geometry, true width and extent potential. All core holes from the phase one, 2012 program encountered mineralization described as phases of up to semi-massive sulphides and sulphosalts as breccia matrix infill mixed between fragments of disseminated and veinlet to crackle breccia style mineralization. The dominant minerals are pyrite, tetrahedrite, sulphosalt, sphalerite with lesser galena and chalcopyrite. Within the breccia matrix infill these minerals form layered rims around breccia fragments and are variably mixed. Assay results are pending and shall be released upon receipt within the coming weeks.An example of the style of mineralization can be seen in the photograph at this link: http://brixtonmetals.com/core-sample-from-thn12-67/, which shows core from approximately 23m depth in hole THN12-67. (NB. The mineralization shown does not represent all of the mineralization encountered while drilling, only this specific section from hole THN12-67.)Gary R.
