Brigadier Makes Copper Discovery at Picachos

Exploration Continues on Gold-Silver targets Identified in Phase-1 Diamond Drilling

Vancouver, British Columbia – May 26, 2021 – Brigadier Gold Limited (the “Company” or “Brigadier”) (TSXV: BRG|FSE: B7LM|USA: BGADF) is pleased to announce the discovery of bulk tonnage type copper mineralization in trenching and further results from exploration of newly identified gold targets at its Picachos gold-silver-copper project Sinaloa, Mexico (the “Picachos Project”, “Picachos” or the “Property”). Additional assays from phase-1 diamond drilling are anticipated to be received in June.

Pichachos, located approximately four hours’ drive from the city of Mazatlan, covers 3,954 hectares and overlaps one of the largest high-amplitude contiguous anomalies for gold and base metals in the western Sierra Madre with values up to 6841 ppb Au in fine-fraction, active channel stream sediments.

Rob Birmingham, President and CEO, remarks, “We’re proud of the team effort put into acquiring, financing, and driving exploration and development at Picachos. Exploration and diamond drilling efforts led by head geologist Michelle Robinson, have successfully identified an extensive mineralized vein system and numerous targets for follow up investigation, including a large, unexplored copper porphyry target situated in the northern part of the Property. We look forward to implementing a cost-effective approach aimed at further de-risking Picachos and building on the technical success achieved to date.”

Copper Discovery

Brigadier has initiated trenching across historic anomalies considered prospective for bulk-tonnage style copper mineralization. Trench BRG-50250 was located approximately 2 kilometres south of a trench cut by Brigadier across several hundred metres of molybdenite in the winter of 2020.  The first 50 metres of BRG-50250 have been sampled and analyzed using the field XRF and returned copper values between 0.05% and 1.34% and silver values between 20g/t and 284g/t. These samples will be sent to the lab when the trench is complete and mineralized intervals formally reported after that.

La Gloria Gold Target

Brigadier has completed mapping and sampling of the historic La Gloria underground gold mine in the central part of its Picachos Project. In 2020, Brigadier intercepted La Gloria in DH-BRG-028 between 140 and 141 metres depth where a value of 6.26 g/t gold across 1 metre was returned.  This intercept was 112 metres below the historic workings. In the plane of the vein, the known underground workings are 60 to more than 130 metres below topography. Collectively, diamond drilling and the underground workings define the position of La Gloria Vein for more than 240 metres down-dip.

La Gloria stope is accessed by a 105 metre long cross-cut at the 950 metre elevation that trends easterly.  The cross-cut and drill hole locations are now tightly controlled by a high-resolution airborne LiDAR survey recently completed by Eagle Mapping.  From the portal, La Gloria cross-cut and stope was surveyed using a Brunton and tight chain.

From the mine portal to 71 metres, the host rocks consist of intermediate volcanics that are dark grey-green and contain amygdules that are filled with quartz, chlorite and calcite.  The stope was mapped for approximately 35 metres northwest of the cross-cut and 65 metres to the southeast.  La Gloria Vein strikes 155°-160° and dips 80°-65° southwesterly.  

Samples were cut every metre along the cross-cut to identify any metal bearing veins or veinlets in the hanging wall to La Gloria and clean off the dust for geological mapping.  In the stope, the historically worked faces form a honeycomb and samples were cut across the back or working faces where rock conditions were safe for sampling. Fifteen sample lines of one to three samples each were collected across the vein and these have been submitted today to SGS in Durango for gold and base metal analyses.  Gold is apparent in panned concentrates of several samples. 

Drill Results Pending

Assays are still pending for 518 metres of drilling completed in phase-one, most of which is from a 3-hole  fence drilled across El Placer Norte where underground sampling returned grades of up to 12.79 g/t across the Huarache Vein.  Perhaps more significantly, a surface trench across the El Placer trend returned values of 0.5 g/t gold across 65 metres in BRG-117154.  This was followed by 8 metres of 2.14 g/t gold in adjacent trench BRG-117146.

Brigadier Completes Phase One Exploration at Picachos With Multiple Follow-up Drill Targets

Assays Pending for Prospective El Placer Norte Target where sampling returned up to 12.79 g/t Gold

Vancouver, British Columbia – May 11, 2021 – Brigadier Gold Limited (the “Company” or “Brigadier”) (TSXV: BRG|FSE: B7LM|USA: BGADF) is pleased to provide a summary of the recently completed phase-one exploration program at it Picachos gold-silver-copper project Sinaloa, Mexico (the “Picachos Project”, “Picachos” or the “Property”). In total 5057 metres of diamond drill was completed in 50-holes across eleven different prospects on the Property, most of which were never previously drill tested. Remaining assays are anticipated to be received in June.

Phase-one Drilling Highlights:

  • San Agustín past-producing gold mine with a principal result of 7.45 g/t gold and 51 g/t silver across 7 metres in DH-BRG-001.  Significant widths and grades were intercepted in several holes from San Agustín.
  • San Antoñio historic gold-copper mine with 12.62 g/t gold and 78 g/t silver with 4.5% copper across 0.8 metres in DH-BRG-026.
  • La Gloria historic gold mine with values of 10.65 g/t gold across 1 metre in a larger interval of 2.29 g/t gold across 8 metres in DH-BRG-028.

Rob Birmingham, President & CEO, comments, “With Picachos’ first ever diamond drill program concluded, Brigadier now has a robust dataset from which to plan the next phase of exploration. Over the course of the last eight months, exploration efforts have produced several high priority targets which the Company intends to follow up on, including a copper and base metals porphyry on the North end of the Picachos Project. With copper reaching all time high’s, it is truly an exciting time to take a closer look at this aspect of the Property.”

Assays are still pending for 518 metres of drilling completed in phase-one, most of which is from a 3-hole  fence drilled across El Placer Norte where underground sampling returned grades of up to 12.79 g/t across the Huarache Vein.  Perhaps more significantly, a surface trench across the El Placer trend returned values of 0.5 g/t gold across 65 metres in BRG-117154.  This was followed by 8 metres of 2.14 g/t gold in adjacent trench BRG-117146.

Further indications of a possible bulk tonnage gold target were returned from trench BRG-26892 with values of 1.07 g/t gold across 6 metres from a newly discovered mineralized outcrop of porphyritic rhyolite on the Santa Elena ridge, about 850 metres southwest of Garabato and 750 metres north of El Placer Norte.

A copper porphyry target with associated base metals was confirmed in the northwestern part of the Property where approximately 350 metres of semi-continuous hand trenching on Line 2569200 uncovered sericitic alteration with values mainly greater than 240 ppm molybdenum (Mo) with up to 0.22% Mo across 6 metres. These results confirm the bedrock source for overlying Mo-in-soil results of up to 456 ppm Mo. This anomaly is about 400 hectares in size and is roughly defined by soil samples at 50 metre spacing on survey lines spaced 400 metres apart.  Sericite with molybdenite is interpreted to represent part of a hydrolytic alteration shell around a buried porphyry system.

Brigadier has 17.7 line kilometres of first-order geochemical anomalies for gold, copper and molybdenum outside the drilled areas that merit systematic mapping and trenching.  A portion of these have been selected for near-term work this summer. Access routes for heavy equipment have been surveyed both to Garabato and to the porphyry area. The Company is considering an airborne geophysical survey to better understand both faulting and intrusions related to mineralization.

Brigadier Intercepts 7.63 g/t Gold, 11 g/t Silver and 0.26% Copper Across 0.5 Metres at Picachos

Surface Sampling Returns 12.79 g/t Gold and 8 g/t Silver across 1 Metre from El Placer Norte

Vancouver, British Columbia – May 4, 2021 – Brigadier Gold Limited (the “Company” or “Brigadier”) (TSXV: BRG|FSE: B7LM|USA: BGADF) is pleased to provide additional diamond drill and sampling results from phase one exploration at its Picachos gold-silver project, Sinaloa Mexico (the “Picachos Project”, “Picachos” or the “Property”). Brigadier has completed and received assay results for 4538 metres of diamond drilling in 43 holes on the Picachos Project. Assays results for holes 29 through 43 and recent sampling are provided in Table 1.

In March Brigadier hired Eagle Mapping to collect LiDAR data and aerial photographs.  Survey flights were completed in April and Brigadier drilled 3 diamond drill holes across El Placer Norte below the Chiveras high-grade workings with results expected in June.  

Underground mapping and sampling of La Gloria is in-progress to better understand the results of diamond drill holes DH-BRG-028 and DH-BRG-031.  Further, the access road to the collars of DH-BRG-029 and 030 cut across several new historic workings and veins and these are in the process of being mapped and sampled.  Surface trenching is planned across El Placer in the southeastern part of the Property, as well as across Salvador and Urrea.  The Company is still discovering previously undocumented prospects and workings, which are being systematically mapped and sampled.      

Brigadier has received the remaining assays for work completed prior to March 31, 2021 with best result being 12.79 g/t Au and 8 g/t Ag across 1 meter from El Placer Norte (BRG-25131).  This includes 0.1 m of 117.45 g/t Au and 57 g/t Ag. This sample line was cut across the Huarache Vein at 1155 m elevation from an historic underground gold mine.  Other notable results from El Placer Norte include 38.88 g/t Au and 22 g/t Ag across 0.5 m (BRG-27106) and 12.38 g/t Au and 4 g/t Ag across 0.6 m (BRG-27102).  El Placer is a system of veins and veinlets that trends northwesterly and has been mapped for about 4 kilometers across widths of 60 to 200 meters.

From the Cobre area, located about 650 meters northwest of El Placer Norte, sampling has defined three principal veins: El Cobre, El Herrero and Calzadas that define a northwesterly trend that is about 40 meters wide.  The best result from the Cobre Vein is 57 g/t Ag, 2.12% Cu and 0.12% Pb across 1.7 m (BRG-26926) from Chinakatera Level 737. About 20 meters below the adit, DH-BRG-038 returned values of 0.73% Cu, 6 g/t Ag and 0.12% Pb across 3 m.  El Herrero reported 108 g/t Ag, 3.2% Cu and 0.5% Pb across 2.1 m from Level 755.  Calzada Vein contains 148 g/t Ag, 0.33% Cu and 0.26% Pb across 0.7 m from Level 759.  

La Cocolmeca Vein was prospected below the Guayabo showing and under the newly discovered Cinco Gramos outcrop located 1.4 kilometers to the northeast.  Mechanical trenching with the bulldozer better exposed Cinco Gramos and sample BRG-121612 returned values of 9.59 g/t Au, 48 g/t Ag and 0.31% Cu across 1.4 m. DH-BRG-043 was located next to the showing and returned values of 0.52 g/t Au, 5 g/t Ag and 0.07% Cu across 14.5 m, including 0.5 m of 7.63 g/t Au, 11 g/t Ag and 0.26% Cu.  From Guayabo, DH-BRG-032 contains 0.23 g/t Au, 0.09% Cu, 0.07% Pb and 0.22 across 18.5 m, including 3 meters of 0.72 g/t Au, 13 g/t Ag, 0.2% Cu, 0.17% Pb and 0.34% Zn.
