VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brixton Metals Corporation (TSX: BBB, OTCQB: BBBXF) (the “Company” or “Brixton”) is pleased to announce an update on the Hog Heaven Project which is currently being operated under a definitive earn-in JV Agreement with Ivanhoe Electric Inc.[1], a privately-owned mineral exploration and development company led by Chairman and CEO, Robert Friedland (see news release dated March 2nd, 2021). The Hog Heaven Project is a high sulphidation epithermal copper-gold-silver project with porphyry potential and historical production located in the state of Montana, USA.


  • Completed a 14,500-meter re-logging program of current and historic drill core
  • Re-sampled approximately 2,600 pulp samples from historic drill holes at Flathead Mine and Ole Hill (assays pending)
  • Collected 337 soil samples and additional rock chip samples
  • Confirmed and updated geological mapping across the district
  • A 3D induced polarization (IP) survey along with a ground gravity survey was conducted over the entire project
  • Completed a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment (ESA)

Since the beginning of their work program in early 2021, Ivanhoe Electric has been focusing their work campaign on re-logging and sampling of the well-preserved historic drill core with the goal of re-classifying the historic mineral resources to NI 43-101 compliant standards. Additionally, geophysical surveys have been completed to assist with identifying additional zones of high-grade mineralization, as well as porphyry-style mineralization, throughout the district.
