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.

Brigadier Continues Exploration at Picachos High Grade Gold-Silver Property – Drilling Under Recently Discovered Outcrop Returns Wide Intercept. New CEO/President appointed

Vancouver, British Columbia – April 1, 2021 – Brigadier Gold Limited (the “Company” or “Brigadier”) (TSXV: BRG|FSE: B7LM|USA: BGADF) continues to drill its Picachos gold-silver project, Sinaloa, Mexico (the “Picachos Project”, “Picachos” or the “Property”). To date 4538 metres of the planned 5000-meter phase-1 diamond drill program has been completed in 43 holes (Figure 1) with assays for 15 holes pending.

Currently, the drill is testing Punto Cinco, a recently discovered outcrop of the Cocolmeca Vein located about 1.2 kilometres northeast of San Antoñio (Figure 3).

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen this much textural complexity of quartz in one drill hole before”, commented Geologist and Qualified Person, Michelle Robinson. DH-BRG-043 from Punto Cinco is definitely part of a significant mineral chute, and I look forward to interpreting the assay data when it is ready.”

The principal target of the phase-1 campaign was the ENE trending Colcomeca Vein system that trends for more than 7 kilometres along the diagonal of the Property. This structure was tested in the winter of 2020 near the San Agustín Mine portal, and under the historic San Antoñio Mine 2.6 kilometres northeast of San Agustín. In the spring of 2021, Brigadier tested under the historic Guayabo Mine, located 180 metres southwest of San Antoñio (Figure 2).

Mineralization at Guayabo is hosted near the faulted contact of andesitic volcanics of probable Jurassic age that are intruded by megacrystic gabbro of probable Early Cretaceous age with intermediate ignimbrites that are correlated to the Socavon member of the Late Cretaceous Tarahumara Volcanic arc. Several stages of mineralization are apparent from inspection of the drill core: (i) pervasive silicification with disseminated sulfide that is oxidized to hematite, (ii) crustiform quartz veining with sulfides, and (iii) cockade breccias in the central part of the structure. These breccias consist of angular rock fragments that are altered to a soft black mica on fragment margins. These altered rock fragments are surrounded by mamillary quartz interbanded with sulfide that is oxidized to hematite and oxidized copper minerals such as chrysocolla.

At Punto Cinco, the Socavon member is faulted against rhyolitic volcanics and ignimbrite that probably correlate to the Paleocene-Eocene Productive Volcanics mapped at other locations in the western Sierra Madre such as the Tayoltita gold-silver mine in Durango. At Punto Cinco, rocks altered by pervasive silicification and deposition of disseminated sulfide were brecciated to aggregate breccia (a breccia formed of quartz fragments) prior to mineralization by crustiform quartz. Like Guayabo, the central part of the structure is marked by cockade breccia, angular rock fragments with crustiform mammillary bands. At Punto Cinco, these bands include delicate encrustations of zonal rose quartz interbanded with oxidized copper minerals and hematite.

La Cocolmeca Vein is located near the faulted contact of gabbro of probable Early Cretaceous age against ignimbrite correlated to the Socavon member of the Tarahumara volcanic arc. Colorin Vein is a northwesterly trending vein that will be introduced in a later press-release. Data from MTA-19712 are historic.

Brigadier Discovers and Samples Several Historic Underground Mines at its Picachos High Grade Gold-Silver Property

Vancouver, British Columbia – March 22, 2021 – Brigadier Gold Limited (the “Company” or “Brigadier”) (TSXV: BRG|FSE: B7LM|USA: BGADF) is pleased to announce the discovery, and systematic sampling of over two dozen historic underground workings at its Picachos gold-silver project, Sinaloa Mexico (the “Picachos Project”, “Picachos” or the “Property”). 

Brigadier has rehabilitated, mapped and sampled 29 newly discovered historic mine workings in the central part of the Property near the intersection of the ENE trending Cocolmeca Vein system (CVS) and northwesterly trending El Placer system. The underground workings are concentrated in two areas named El Cobre and El Placer Norte (Figure 1).

Having discovered, accessed and sampled these underground workings was an efficient and inexpensive way to improve the Company’s knowledge of the mineralizing systems at Picachos. The pending assay results together with related surface trenching and nearby diamond drilling will assist in understanding the mineralization on the property and greatly assist in identifying our next drill targets.

“There is a lot of geological action in the Cobre Area”, commented Geologist and Qualified Person, Michelle Robinson. “We have northerly trending veins represented by El Cobre, Las Calzadas and 27047. These appear cross-cut and offset by the northwesterly trending El Herrero Vein. More recent strike-slip movement on La Cocolmeca is regionally important and apparently offsets some vein segments. Further, the intrusive rocks into the volcanic pile contain orbicules, a feature indicative of volatile-rich melts capable of generating robust hydrothermal systems in the porphyry environment. For now, we are exploring the vein potential, but this Project has an exposed porphyry system in the northwest, and buried parts may be discovered by drilling under veins such as El Cobre”. 

El Cobre Area

At El Cobre, five principal veins have been identified: (i) El Cobre, (ii) El Herrero, (iii) Las Calzadas, (iv) La Cocolmeca and (v) Vein 27047. The veins are hosted in ignimbrites correlated to the Socavon member of the Late Cretaceous Tarahumara Volcanic Arc. These ignimbrites unconformably overlie submarine andesitic volcanic rocks tentatively assigned to the Jurassic Guerrero Terrane.  The strata are intruded by orbicular monzonite porphyry that is younger than the 74-million-year-old Socavon Ignimbrite.  Brigadier has assay results for Level 755, a crosscut 10.1 metres long oriented 070° NE across El Herrero Vein (Fig. 2). The first 8 metres intercepted 0.12% copper in a quartz-chalcopyrite-pyrite stockwork hosted in pervasively silicified ignimbrite. The last 2.1 metres intercepted 3.3% copper and 0.56% lead with 108 g/t silver, 0.1 g/t gold, 177 ppm bismuth and 23 ppm tungsten. Most of the assays for El Cobre are pending.

El Placer Norte Area

At least six veins comprise the northern part of the El Placer Vein system (i) Las Tacuachas, (ii) Los Lentes, (iii) Coralillo, (iv) La Chivera, (v) El Huarache y (vi) Pantufla. These veins are hosted in rhyolitic ignimbrite of probable Paleocene age that unconformably overlie the Socavon Ignimbrite. These veins were defined by mapping and sampling historic workings between 1000 and 1180 metres elevation. The historic workings are mainly short adits that follow narrow higher-grade intervals within the larger El Placer Vein system. Individual sample results for Las Tacuachas, Los Lentes and Corallio are in Table 1. The best result from the underground work was 31.4 g/t Au, 11 g/t Ag, 0.2% Cu, 0.5% Pb and 2% Zn across 0.3 m in sample BRG-25139. To better understand the potential of the larger system Brigadier did 80 metres of trenching across El Placer in three segments starting northeast of Los Lentes. Results include 8 metres of 2.14 g/t gold and 0.12% lead across the Tacuachas Vein (BRG-117146) and 4 metres of 1.95 g/t gold, 0.1% lead and 0.3% zinc across the surface of Los Lentes (BRG-117154). In addition to verifying the structures mapped underground, the surface trenches have identified gold anomalies between known veins that indicate the presence of several additional veins (Fig. 3). Assays for La Chivera, El Huarache and Pantufla are pending.

Brigadier Adding Second Drill Rig for Commencement of Phase Two Diamond Drilling at Picachos High Grade Gold-Silver Property

Brigadier Adding Second Drill Rig for Commencement of Phase Two Diamond Drilling at Picachos High Grade Gold-Silver Property

Announces Non-Brokered Private Placement

Vancouver, British Columbia – February 19, 2021 – Brigadier Gold Limited (the “Company” or “Brigadier”) (TSXV: BRG|FSE: B7LM|USA: BGADF) is pleased to announce the planned addition of a second drill rig in connection with commencement of phase-2 diamond drilling at its Picachos gold-silver project, Sinaloa Mexico (the “Picachos Project”, “Picachos” or the “Property”). The Company also intends to complete a private placement for gross proceeds of up to $1,000,000.

Ranjeet Sundher, Brigadier’s CEO commented: “We continue to make excellent progress at Picachos, although we have only just started to evaluate the potential of this extensive mineralized system. The additional rig will help considerably in accelerating our investigating the many high priority existing and newly identified targets on the Property. The Cocolmeca vein structure (CVS) is persistent and strongly mineralized and we look forward to expanding the depth and strike length in 2021, as well as continuing exploration of the rest of the CVS, particularly in the central Cocolmeca area.”

Phase-one exploration results at Picachos provided several highlights, including:

  • Confirmed seven-kilometre long vein system of precious metals mineralization
  • Widely spaced holes show vein continuity on strike and at depth with robust width
  • High grade nature of precious metals mineralization consistently observed in assays
  • Confirmed meaningful gold/silver mineralization in hanging wall and footwall of vein systems
  • Discovered previously unexplored high-grade gold and silver historic workings
  • Multiple new surface and subsurface targets discovered during reconnaissance and mapping
  • Copper porphyry target sampling suggests high priority follow-up exploration

The Picachos land package was methodically assembled by Michelle Robinson (MASc., P.Eng., Geologist and Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”)) over 10 years ago.  Michelle is a respected industry veteran who has worked in Mexico for over 20-years with a number of major mining companies. She has authored over 20 technical reports and published several papers for the Society of Economic Geologists.  Michelle and her team are executing on our 5,000-metre diamond drill program – the first ever on this project

The project’s location, situated 25 kilometres equidistant from two recent bonanza grade discoveries of Vizsla Resources and GR Silver and along the same mineralized trend, positions Picachos as a truly exciting opportunity for Brigadier Gold and our shareholders.

Private Placement

Brigadier Intercepts 12.62 g/t Gold and 78 g/t Silver with 4.5% Copper Across 0.8 Metres at Picachos

Underground Sampling from Undrilled Surrounding Veins Returns 109.14 g/t Gold and 20 g/t Silver Across 0.5 Metres

Vancouver, British Columbia – February 17, 2021 – Brigadier Gold Limited (the “Company” or “Brigadier”) (TSXV: BRG|FSE: B7LM|USA: BGADF) is pleased to provide additional diamond drill and underground sampling results from ongoing 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 3085 metres of diamond drilling in 28 holes on the Picachos Project. Assays results for holes 21 through 28 and recent underground sampling are provided in Table 1.

Phase-one exploration highlights to date:

  • Confirmed seven-kilometre long vein system of precious metals mineralization
  • Widely spaced holes show vein continuity on strike and at depth with robust width
  • High grade nature of precious metals mineralization consistently observed in assays
  • Confirmed meaningful gold/silver mineralization in hanging wall and footwall of vein systems 
  • Discovered previously unexplored high-grade gold and silver historic workings
  • Multiple new surface and subsurface targets discovered during reconnaissance and mapping
  • Copper porphyry target sampling suggests high priority follow-up exploration

Geologist and Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”), Michelle Robinson comments “results of our phase-one program at Picachos imply a robust and geographically expansive mineralized system for which we have only just scratched the surface. I am very pleased with our results, in particular the number of targets demanding follow up drilling or for newly discovered zones, a first ever drill hole. The Cocolmeca vein structure (CVS) is persistent and strongly mineralized and I look forward to expanding the depth and strike length in 2021, as well as continuing the exploration of the rest of the CVS, particularly in the central Cocolmeca area.”

Of the 28 holes drilled to date, fourteen (1704 metres) were drilled to test the San Agustín Vein, 10 holes (1029 metres) tested surface exploration targets defined by trenching, 2 holes (168 metres) tested under the historic San Antoñio Mine and one hole tested under the historic La Gloria Mine. San Agustín and San Antoñio represent two gold-rich, polymetallic mineral chutes about 2.5 kilometres apart on Brigadier’s regional-scale Cocolmeca Vein System (CVS), and La Gloria historically produced gold from a northwesterly trending vein roughly orthogonal to the CVS. The CVS has been defined at varying levels of certainty along the east-northeasterly trending diagonal of the Property for more than seven kilometres.  

La Gloria Gold Mine and Palodismo

La Gloria underground gold mine is accessed from a 106 metre long east-southeasterly trending cross-cut located at 965 metres elevation in the central part of the Property. This opening provides access to a southeasterly trending stope that is more than 70 metres long and about 1.5 metres wide. Historic sample MTA-15659 was cut across the northwest face of this stope and contained values of 21.09 g/t Au, 6.6 g/t Ag, 0.4% Cu, 0.8% Pb and 0.5% Zn across 0.8 metres. The orientation of the structure at this location is 162°/75° SW. Brigadier cut a sample across the southeastern face of the stope which returned a result of 49.6 g/t Au and 31 g/t Ag across 0.4 metres (BRG-26402) and a notably more easterly orientation of 150°/74° SW. Mineralization in the stope consists of microcrystalline quartz breccia intergrown with pink epidote (piemontite?), and native gold along a shear zone hosted in agglomerate. The mud matrix between volcanic blocks and bombs is pervasively replaced by microcrystalline grey quartz intergrown with galena, sphalerite and lesser chalcopyrite.

Palodismo was first identified in historic sample MTA-19690 with results of 27.61 g/t Au and 4 g/t Ag across 1.3 metres from a small underground prospect 65 metres north of the entrance to La Gloria.  Characteristic “pink epidote-quartz” is mentioned in the notes from 2007. A second underground prospect 115 metres SE of La Gloria cross-cut was sampled by Brigadier with results of 9.7 g/t Au and 2 g/t Ag across 0.8 metres (BRG-25207). Measured vein orientations from both prospects are 147°/75° SW.  

Drill hole BRG-028 was collared 72 metres southwest of La Gloria. It was designed to intercept both Palodismo and La Gloria under historic sample MTA-15657 with a result of 5.27 g/t Au and 7 g/t Ag across 1.5 metres. All of DH-BRG-028 was altered to propylitic mineral assemblages dominated by epidote and chlorite. Microcrystalline galena and sphalerite in silicified mud between volcanic blocks and bombs defines a broad geochemical response of 0.4% Zn, 0.2% Pb, 170 ppm Cu, 0.2 g/t Au and 2 g/t Ag along the entire hole length of 183.5 metres. The section between 59 and 64 metres contains 1.2% Zn and 0.3% Pb with 348 ppm Cu across 5 metres. Shear zones marked by kaolinite and/or and pink quartz-piemontite breccias contain elevated gold values. Several of these were intercepted in the hanging wall to Palodismo.  One of these contains 1.8 g/t Au and 1.9 g/t Ag across 2 metres between 35 and 37 metres. Palodismo itself is defined by a geochemical anomaly of 2.29 g/t Au across 8 metres between 105 and 113 metres.  The Palodismo Vein is marked by pink quartz-epidote breccia between 110 and 111 metres with values of 10.65 g/t Au across 1 metre. A three-point solution between MTA-19690, BRG-25207 and this intercept in DH-BRG-028 yields an orientation of 145°/73° SW, in good agreement with field measurements from underground exposures of Palodismo.

A second intercept of 6.26 g/t Au between 141 and 142 metres in DH-BRG-028 is only tentatively correlated to La Gloria Vein. This interpretation implies that the vein flattens out at depth to a dip of about 65 degrees. Alternatively, the strike may have changed as implied by BRG-26402, and DH-BRG-028 never reached La Gloria Vein. Further drilling is required to clearly define La Gloria Vein at depth.

San Antoñio

San Antoñio is a historic prospect cut across the major ENE trending Cocolmeca Vein system that bisects the Property along the 8 km ENE diagonal 250 metres northwest of La Gloria Gold Mine. Values of 44.1 g/t Au, 47 g/t Ag, 0.4% Cu, 0.2% Pb and 0.7% Zn across 0.8 metres were obtained in historic sample MTA-19856. A prior operator drilled RC hole TAN3 under MTA-19856 in 2008 and got a result of 0.8% Cu, 0.29 g/t Au, 451 ppm Pb and 525 ppm Zn across 1.02 metres between 84.66 metres and 85.68 metres down-hole.  Brigadier decided that historic result did not make sense considering the high-grade nature of this large, continuous vein. To clarify this view, two PQ diamond core holes were drilled with pierce points into La Coco on either side of TAN3.  DH-BRG-026, cut northeast of TAN3, yielded a result of 1.07 g/t Au, 18 g/t Ag, 0.4% Cu, 0.2% Zn across 3.9 metres between 74 and 77.9 metres. This result includes 4.44 g/t Au, 6 g/t Ag, 0.1% Cu across 0.9 metres between 77 and 77.9 metres. DH-BRG-027, cut southwest of TAN3, intercepted a vein of semi-massive chalcopyrite with 12.62 g/t Au, 78 g/t Ag, 4.5% Cu, 0.2% Zn, 0.2% Pb across 0.8 metres between 54.7 and 55.5 metres down-hole. Both intercepts have significant hangingwall and footwall alteration comprised of piemontite, sphalerite, galena, pyrite and chalcopyrite (similar to La Gloria).  From this data Brigadier concludes that the RC drilling method used previously was inadequate for sampling the Veins on this Property, although it was successful in locating the Veins in the subsurface.

Nearby NW trending Veins

Several underground mines and prospects are developed on near-parallel veins within 500 metres to the southwest of La Gloria.  These include Colorín, El Salvador, Urrea and Mangos. Of these, Urrea is the best developed with extraction levels at 840 metre, 860 metre, 895 metre, 935 metre and 1040 metre. Underground rock chip-channel results from these Veins include:     

  • 20.14 g/t Au and 36 g/t Ag across 1 metre in Sample BRG-25203 from Colorín Vein 
  • 11.55 g/t Au and 3 g/t Ag across 2 metre in Sample BRG-27376 from El Salvador Vein
  • 109.14 g/t Au and 20 g/t Ag across 0.5 metre in Sample BRG-27405 from Urrea Vein (860 metre Level)
  • 20.21 g/t Au and 22 g/t Ag with 19.4% lead across 0.3 metre in Sample BRG-25235 from Urrea Vein (1034 metre Level)
  • 23.45 g/t Au and 6 g/t Ag in sample BRG-23762 from Mangos Vein

Ongoing Exploration

The Company has located and mapped several underground drifts and cross-cuts northwest of Lentes (Company PR dated 6 October) and near the Cobre Veins. A new batch of 224 underground and trench samples has been received by SGS laboratories. Results will be published when these are available from the Lab.

The Picachos land package was methodically assembled by Michelle Robinson (MASc., P.Eng., Geologist and Qualified Person) over 10 years ago.  Michelle is a respected industry veteran who has worked in Mexico for over 20-years with a number of major mining companies. She has authored over 20 technical reports and published several papers for the Society of Economic Geologists.  Michelle and her team are executing on our 5,000-metre diamond drill program – the first ever on this project

The project’s location, situated 25 kilometres equidistant from two recent bonanza grade discoveries of Vizsla Resources and GR Silver and along the same mineralized trend, positions Picachos as a truly exciting opportunity for Brigadier Gold and our shareholders.

The 3,954 hectare Picachos Property is centered over the historic “Viva Zapata” National Mineral Reserve, Sinaloa, Mexico.  It overlaps two mineralized systems, a porphyry copper-molybdenum system hosted by a Paleocene granite-granodiorite intrusive complex, and a gold-silver vein complex comprised of both east-northeasterly trending veins (La Cocolmeca Vein System) and northwesterly trending veins (El Placer System).  Sericitic alteration related to the porphyry system has been mapped over the northwestern two-thirds of the Property.  Quartz-biotite veinlets with chalcopyrite and bornite occur in the central part of this broad zone of sericitic alteration and imply the presence of a significant porphyry system at depth.  La Colcomeca Vein system has been mapped from San Agustín Underground Gold Mine in the southwestern part of the Property to El Pino seven kilometres to the northeast.  In the central part of the Property, the best exposure of the northwesterly trending system occurs between La Gloria Underground Gold Mine and the Urrea Gold Mines, located 630 metres southwest of La Gloria.  In this area, other northwesterly trending veins between these veins include Paldodismo, Colorin, Salvador, Trompetas and Mangos.  On the eastern part of the Property, Tatemales and La Botica define a four kilometre long trend.  

The growing inventory of priority drill targets underscore the untapped potential of this particular region of Sierra Madre Occidental epithermal belt.

Brigadier Completes Drone Magnetic Survey on Killala Lake Diamond Property

Vancouver, British Columbia – January 27, 2021 – Brigadier Gold Limited (the “Company” or “Brigadier”) (TSXV: BRG|FSE: B7LM|USA: BGADF (the “Corporation“) is pleased to announce the completion of a drone magnetic survey on the Killala Lake Diamond Property (the “Property“).  Previous work by the Wahl Group (Rudolf Wahl and Mike Dorval) led to the discovery of the Madonna Diamondiferous dike. Diamonds were first located on the Property in 2006 when Dianor Resources Inc. had Kennecott Canada Exploration Inc.’s Minerals Processing Laboratory complete dense media separation of a 1205.8 kilogram sample of the  dike.  The sample produced 66 micro diamonds.  Subsequent to the recovery of the diamonds the claimholder completed a diamond drill program that intersected the Madonna dike and another dike thought to be genetically related.  

Brigadier as an option to acquire a 100% interest in the Property, which consists of forty-six (46) cell claims units located in Killala Lake, Foxtrap Lake Area Townships, Thunder Bay Mining District, Ontario, subject to reservation of royalties in favor of the Wahl Group.

The results of the drone survey have produced interesting magnetic features that will be assessed in the spring by prospecting, sampling and possible stripping.  The Property has potential to host additional diamond bearing dikes.  The continued exploration of the Madonna dike and other dikes will provide insight on the diamond content, petrography, and minerology occurrences.

Brigadier Intercepts 9.49 g/t Gold and 24 g/t Silver Across 3 Metres at Picachos

Drilling and Surface Sampling Results Indicate Primary Vein System Contains Over 7 Kilometres of Robust Mineralization.

Drill Assay Results from Other Previously Untested Prospective Zones Expected During January.

Vancouver, British Columbia – January 19, 2021 – Brigadier Gold Limited (the “Company” or “Brigadier”) (TSXV: BRG|FSE: B7LM|USA: BGADF) is pleased to provide additional diamond drill and surface sampling results from ongoing phase one exploration at its Picachos gold-silver project, Sinaloa Mexico (the “Picachos Project” or the “Property”). Brigadier has completed 3085 metres of diamond drilling in 28 holes on the Picachos Project.  Assays are now available for 20 holes (Table 1), and samples from the remaining holes are in-progress at SGS Laboratory in Durango.

Drilling highlights include:

  • 9.49 g/t Au and 24 g/t Ag across 3 m (88 to 91 m) in DH-BRG-008
  • 6.24 g/t Au and 79 g/t Ag across 3 m (122.5 to 125.5 m) in DH-BRG-009
  • 7.03 g/t Au and 110 g/t Ag across 3.5 m (137.5 to 141 m) in DH-BRG-012
  • 6.75 g/t Au and 44 g/t Ag across 2.5 m (108.5 to 111 m) in DH-BRG-014

Geologist and Qualified Person Michelle Robinson comments “I am really pleased with our results so far from San Agustín.  The structure is persistent and strongly mineralized.  Although our sampling with a diamond drill is not perfect due to the challenging sub-surface conditions, it definitely indicates a robust gold-bearing vein of substantial width and strike length of over seven kilometers. I look forward to expanding the depth and strike length in 2021, as well as continuing the exploration of the rest of the CVS (Colomeca Vein System), particularly in the central Cocolmeca area where a swarm of northwesterly trending veins intersects the east-north-easterly trending Cocolmeca Vein System.”

Ranjeet Sundher, President and CEO, also comments “We are impressed with the speed in which Michelle and her team is de-risking the Picachos Project and increasingly demonstrating its regional scale potential.  With just a small portion of the asset explored to date, I’m looking forward to keeping shareholders abreast as we aggressively move forward to further define the Colomeca Vein System while also commencing examination of the large copper-molybdenum porphyry target located on the northern part of the Property.”

Of the 28 holes drilled to date, fourteen (1704.28 metres) were drilled to test the San Agustín Vein, 10 holes (1029 metres) tested surface exploration targets defined by trenching, 2 holes (168.5 metres) tested under the historic San Antoñio Mine and one hole tested under the historic La Gloria Mine.  San Agustín and San Antoñio represent two gold-rich, polymetallic mineral chutes about 2.5 kilometres apart on Brigadier’s regional-scale Cocolmeca Vein System (CVS), and La Gloria historically produced gold from a northwesterly trending vein roughly orthogonal to the CVS.  The CVS has been defined at varying levels of certainty along the east-northeasterly trending diagonal of the Picachos Project for more than seven kilometres.  Six surface rock chip-channel results that help define the location of the CVS include:

  1. 4.89 g/t Au and 67 g/t Ag across 5 metres (trench BRG-104705) from San Agustín (PR dated 24 November 2020)
  2. 1.85 g/t Au and 4 g/t Ag across 10 metres (trench BRG-120920) at Los Tejones prospect pits, centered 1 kilometre northeast of San Agustín
  3. 347 g/t Ag, 0.1 g/t Au and 5.2% Cu across 1.0 metres (historic trench MTA-15953) at Guayabo, 2.4 kilometres northeast of San Agustín
  4. 44.09 g/t Au and 47 g/t Ag across 0.8 metres (historic trench MTA-19856) at San Antoñio, 2.5 kilometres northeast of San Agustín
  5. 5.25 g/t Au and 74 g/t Ag across 1.2 metres (trench BRG-27012) from the road to La Botica, 3.7 kilometres from San Agustín
  6. 1.9 g/t Au and 98 g/t Ag across 1.6 metres (trench BRG-25220) from El Pino, 5.8 kilometres    northeast of San Agustín (PR dated 14 September 2020)

Figure 1. Overview map of surface results 1 to 6 (above) on the surface trace of the CVS, highlighted in yellow. Locations of 2020 diamond drill sites are marked in black circles labeled DH.  Holes 26 and 27 are below trench site 4 (MTA-19856). The Picachos Project boundary is in navy blue. The internal concession that is held by a subsidiary of Fresñillo PLC is marked in grey.  The yellow CVS dips northwesterly, into the center of the Property.

During the Fall of 2020, the Company primarily explored the down-dip potential of the southwestern most segment of the CVS that was historically exploited by Minas de Picacho from San Agustín Adit Level 646 in the 1990’s.  Three fences of holes were drilled up to 130 metres north of this adit, and three fences were drilled up to 90 metres south of Level 646. Overall, a strike length of about 210 metres was tested.  Most mineral intercepts were located between 650 and 550 metres elevation. The deepest test was in DH-BRG-007 at 530 m elevation or 200 metres below topography.

Geologically, the mineralization is located at the faulted and sheared contact between metamorphosed, thickly laminated, sulfide-rich argillite of deep marine origin and porphyritic intermediate continental volcanic rocks correlated to the Tarahumara Formation.  Fault damage on this regional-scale geological terrane boundary is profound with shearing and quartz veining evident at several locations in the hanging wall to the San Agustín Vein.  On Figure 3, a preliminary interpretation of what this veining might look like is shown in the rose color in the Picachos Project fault block.  Some results from quartz veins and veinlets in the hanging wall to the San Agustín Vein are:

  • 2.71 g/t Au and 24 g/t Ag across 2 m (54 to 56 m) in DH-BRG-003
  • 0.6 g/t Au and 34 g/t Ag across 2 m (52 to 54 m) in DH-BRG-005
  • 0.73 g/t Au and 27 g/t Ag across 4 m (51 to 55 m) in DH-BRG-014

Figure 2. Long section of the San Agustín Vein, looking west northwesterly, showing principal results from diamond drilling, underground and surface sampling completed by the Company in the fall of 2020.  This section displays data from 12.5 meters in front of and behind the plane of the page.


Figure 3. Level Plan of the San Agustín Vein.  All 14 diamond drill holes intercepted gold-rich polymetallic mineralization at the faulted contact between metamorphic argillite of submarine origin (blue) and altered continental volcanic rocks correlated to the Tarahumara Formation (greens).  In the hanging wall (Picachos Project fault block), there are several quartz veins and veinlets hosted in the argillite.  In rose, a possible interpretation for some of the hanging wall intercepts is shown. 

At Los Tejones, encouraging results of 1.85 g/t Au were cut across 10 meters in a surface trench (BRG-120920). About 50 meters to the northeast, a second trench cut 1 meter of 428 g/t Ag (BRG-119913).  Rock discovered by both trenches was deeply weathered and structures controlling the   mineralization were mostly not obvious.  Drill testing under these anomalies returned anomalous base metals but subdued precious metals (DH-BRG-015 to 20).  Geologically, disseminated and stockwork mineralization occurs at the faulted contact between magnetic andesitic volcanics that might be Jurassic in age, and intermediate volcanic rocks correlated to the Tarahumara Formation.    

Results from other surface trenches include:

  • 2.09 g/t Au and 170 g/t Ag across 1.2 m from the Casimiro Vein (BRG-27024)
  • 8.84 g/t Au, 36 g/t Ag and 1.6% Pb across 2 m from El Roque Vein (BRG-120828)
  • 5.25 g/t Au, 74 g/t Ag and 1.7% Cu across 1.2 m from La Cocolmeca Vein (BRG-27012)

The Picachos Project land package was methodically assembled by Michelle Robinson (MASc., P.Eng., Geologist, 43-101 QP) over 10 years ago.  Michelle is a respected industry veteran who has worked in Mexico for over 20-years with a number of major mining companies. She has authored over 20 technical reports and published several papers for the Society of Economic Geologists.  Michelle and her team are executing on our 5,000-metre diamond drill program – the first ever on this project

The Picachos Project’s location, situated 25 kilometres equidistant from two recent bonanza grade discoveries of Vizsla Resources and GR Silver and along the same mineralized trend, positions Picachos Project as a truly exciting opportunity for Brigadier and our shareholders.

The 3,954 hectare Picachos Project is centered over the historic “Viva Zapata” National Mineral Reserve, Sinaloa, Mexico.  It overlaps two mineralized systems, a porphyry copper-molybdenum system hosted by a Paleocene granite-granodiorite intrusive complex, and a gold-silver vein complex comprised of both east-northeasterly trending veins (La Cocolmeca Vein System) and northwesterly trending veins (El Placer System).  Sericitic alteration related to the porphyry system has been mapped over the northwestern two-thirds of the Property.  Quartz-biotite veinlets with chalcopyrite and bornite occur in the central part of this broad zone of sericitic alteration and imply the presence of a significant porphyry system at depth.  La Colcomeca Vein system has been mapped from San Agustín Underground Gold Mine in the southwestern part of the Property to El Pino seven kilometres to the northeast.  In the central part of the Property, the best exposure of the northwesterly trending system occurs between La Gloria Underground Gold Mine and the Urrea Gold Mines, located 630 metres southwest of La Gloria.  In this area, other northwesterly trending veins between these veins include Paldodismo, Colorin, Salvador, Trompetas and Mangos.  On the eastern part of the Property, Tatemales and La Botica define a four kilometre long trend. 

The growing inventory of priority drill targets underscore the untapped potential of this particular region of Sierra Madre Occidental epithermal belt.
