The property is within the traditional territory of the Taku River Tlingit First Nations and the Tahltan First Nations. Brixton is actively drilling and conducting geophysical, geochemical and geological surveys on the property, as previously described in its May 26, 2021 press release.
Updated technical report
Brixton retained Archer, Cathro & Associates (1981) Limited (“Archer catherine“) to prepare the updated technical report in accordance with the disclosure and reporting requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101 of the Canadian Securities Administrators” Disclosure Standards for Mining Projects “(“Regulation 43-101”) For the Property. The updated technical report includes an updated inference resource on the property, as shown in Table 1-1.
The property is located in the Sutlahine River region of northwestern British Columbia (BC), approximately 130 km southeast of Atlin, BC, and 90 km to east of Juneau, Alaska. The property consists of 222 claims covering a total area of 2,596 km2 (259,621 ha). The property is 100% owned by Brixton, with a small number of the original claims subject to underlying royalties.

- Mineral resources have been classified in accordance with the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (“CIM“) Definition Standards for mineral resources and mineral reserves.
- Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. All figures are rounded to reflect the relative precision of the estimates. The dosages of silver, gold, copper, lead and zinc have been capped / cut where appropriate.
- The in-pit portion is reported at an equivalent dollar cut-off value of US $ 15 / t in a Whittle shell and US $ 50 / t for an underground portion of the Oban deposit. Whittle shells have been designed based on a 55 ° slope angle and 90% recovery for all metals. The block models are 10 x 10 x 10 m, 5 x 10 x 5 m and 5 x 10 x 5 m for Oban, Glenfiddich and Talisker respectively.
- Dollar and silver equivalents are based on May 2021 long-term consensus prices US $ 20 / oz silver, US $ 1,500 / oz gold, US $ 3.2 / lb copper, $ 0.9 US / lb lead and US $ 1.1 / lb zinc, with metal recoveries of 90%.
- Please see the updated technical report for a discussion of the key assumptions, parameters and methods used to estimate the mineral resources and any known legal, political, environmental or other risks that could materially affect the potential development of the mineral resources.
- “NA” in the above table indicates that the respective estimated values for copper, lead and zinc are significantly less than 0.1%. Therefore, they should not be considered to have “reasonable prospects for eventual economic extraction” for the respective mineralized zone. Currently, no metallurgical study has been carried out on the respective mineralized zones.
The property is located in a geologically favorable zone and has significant porphyry and epithermal style mineralization potential. The size of the property, the high number of minfile occurrences, and regional trends in mineralization indicate that there is high potential for multiple porphyry centers.
The updated technical report updates and replaces the technical report published in 2014 titled “Independent Technical Report for the Thorn Project, Sutlahine River Area, British Columbia, Canada” by Myondo and Nowak of SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc . (SRK). The lead author and Qualified Person (QP) responsible for the updated technical report is Heather Burrell, P.Geo., A senior geologist at Archer Cathro. Ms Burrell, who is independent from Brixton, conducted a property survey on March 10, 2021, on behalf of the Company.

Ms. Burrell and Mr. Deiss, because of their education, experience and professional association, are considered Qualified Persons (QP) within the meaning of NI 43-101.
President and CEO Gary R. Thompson said, “Brixton continues to advance its Thorn project with the goal of growing its resource base through the drilling of new discoveries and advancement of targets. known exploration. The inferred resources shown in the June 23, 2021 report represent some of the near-surface high sulphidation veins and breccia zones along the Camp Creek corridor and represent an 11.8% increase in silver equivalent resources over the 2014 inferred resource estimate. Current drilling targets porphyry-style mineralization at depth beneath these high sulphidation zones. Brixton has dramatically increased its chances of success for Project Thorn with the large number of large scale copper-gold-silver-molybdenum targets on hand and the Camp Creek target is one of the many target areas for Project Thorn.
Qualified Person and NI 43-101 Disclosure
