According to the company, drilling is targeting gold-silver-copper mineralization hosted in intermediate to high sulphidation quartz-sulphide veins such as the Talisker Zone.

Brixton Metals is funding exploration at Thorn under an option agreement to earn a 51% interest in the project by funding $5m in exploration and by making cash and share payments.

The company has received assays for the first three holes of the nine holes (2481.7m) completed, and these three holes were drilled to test the Talisker corridor.

The drill hole THN11-41 was collared as a 56m step-out on strike to the northeast from hole THN05-37, and intercepted 1.71 g/t gold, 37.7 g/t silver and 0.04 % copper over 10.15m from 72.93m.

The drill hole THN11-42 was collared as a 200m step-out to the northeast from hole THN05-37, and intercepted 1.72 g/t gold, 136.1 g/t silver, 2.84 % copper over 3.00m from 81.24m and also intercepted 0.63 g/t gold, 22.4 g/t silver, and 0.14 % copper over 34.82m from 117.82m.

The drill hole THN11-43 was collared 30m to the southwest of TH05-36, and intersected 0.43 g/t gold, 18.3 g/t silver, and 0.55 % copper over 2.91m from 141.91m, Kiska said.
