Benton Resources Intersects 1.99% Copper Over 18.1 Metres At Great Burnt

Benton Resources (TSXV: BEX) continues to intersect high grade copper under its winter drill program at the Great Burnt Copper project in Newfoundland.

The latest results consist of two infill drill holes as well as one exploratory hole to the southwest of the main deposit. Highlights from the results include:

  • GB-24-35: 0.24% copper over 1.40 metres from 387.20 metres depth
  • GB-24-36: 0.92% copper over 24.50 metres from 79.00 metres depth, including 1.28% copper over 13.34 metres
  • GB-24-37: 1.99% copper over 18.10 metres from 48.80 metres

Mineralization intersected in hole GB-24-35 is believed to have been near the bottom of the VMS system, with future drilling to test the zone up dip.

Benton also indicated this morning that a down-hole geophysical program conducted has identified an anomaly that extends to the south and along strike from hole GB-24-34. The target is said to be a high priority, and will be drill tested in the next phase of the drill program.

“With each step forward, it is becoming apparent that Great Burnt will deliver further positive and exciting results as we move into the next phase of work. This program will commence with drilling at the South Pond area where there’s significant copper and gold historically and in recent sampling, followed by drilling new EM targets as well as deeper drilling on the Great Burnt Deposit to the south,” commented Stephen Stares, CEO of Benton Resources.

Benton Resources last traded at $0.15 on the TSX Venture.
