Surge Exploration Inc. (Surge) announces that it has completed a major claim staking programme partly adjoining the Thorn Project owned by Brixton Metals Corp. (Brixton), located in the Sutlahine River area of northwestern British Columbia (northern tip of the Golden Triangle). Brixton reported a new drill hole intercept of 1.97 g/t gold equivalent across 554.70 m including 135.96 m of 1.35 g/t Au, 0.31 Cu, 133.62 g/t Ag or 5.00 g/t Aueq including 6 m of 3.56% Cu, 3.37 g/t Au, 257.77 g/t Ag.
Surges' staking programme acquired an area of 213 km2 within the regionally important geological and structural trend. A large portion of the new property is adjacent to the Thorn Project with the balance covering prospective open ground containing numerous B.C. Minfile showings with Cu, Ag, Au values adjoining the boundaries of the Golden Bear Mine of Chevron Resources, a 480 000 oz Au past producer.
In Brixton's news release dated 15 July 2019 (Brixton News Release) they reported results from drill hole THN19-150, which was drilled to 829.06 m depth at the Oban diatreme breccia pipe within the Camp Creek copper corridor. Structural mapping and soil-rock geochemistry at the Chivas zone and relogging of select core from the Glenfiddich zone were also conducted. The objective of the programme was to test for porphyry mineralisation at depth at the Oban zone and to refine the two porphyry targets, Chivas and Camp Creek, for the next round of drilling.
Once all historical exploration data has been assembled and compiled management will announce a summer evaluation programme. The project was acquired 100% for staking costs of approximately US$40 000.
