Brixton Metals Engages Equity Exploration for its 2011 Thorn Drill Program

VANCOUVER, April 6 /CNW/ - Brixton Metals Corporation ("Brixton" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the signing of a letter of engagement with Equity Exploration Consultants Ltd to provide management services on the upcoming 2011 drill program on its Thorn Property in Northern British Columbia.

The 19,000-hectare Thorn Property is located 50 km Northwest at the end of the Golden Bear Mine road in the Sutlahine River area of Northwest British Columbia. Thorn shares many similarities with other high sulphidation metal deposits around the world including La Bodega in Colombia, Lepanto in the Philippines and El Indio in Chile.

Brixton currently has $1.3M budgeted to support the phase one drill program which will include approximately 3,000 meters of drilling, focused on the Talisker and Oban zones. A summary of results is presented below (previously reported in the NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Thorn Property available on both Brixton's website and Sedar.com):
