Benchmark (BNCH) has drilled 38.05 m at 5.80 g/t gold equivalent at its Cliff Creek South deposit.

The results are part of broad zones of bulk-tonnage and high-grade mineralization that include:

  • 107.80 m of 2.00 g/t Au and 46.84 g/t Ag or 2.59 g/t gold equivalent 
  • 20.80 m of 10.24 g/t Au and 19.74 g/t Ag or 10.91 g/t gold equivalent

The Cliff Creek South deposit continues to broaden at depth with higher gold-silver grades.

The company expects to deliver strong results beyond its 2019 C$1600 modelled pit shell by expanding the deposit at depth and along strike.

John Williamson, Benchmark's CEO, commented,

"The Cliff Creek South deposit continues to yield broad zones of bulk-tonnage delivering the potential for open pit mining at surface. In addition, CCS is providing similarities to the Cliff Creek North zone with high-grade intervals at depth, demonstrating potential for future underground mining opportunities.

Additionally, we continue to expand beyond the limits of our 2019 modeled pit shell with the latest result from hole 20CCDD098 of 38.05 m of 5.80 g/t AuEq and that recently reported from 20CCDD076, 140 m below it. As we look towards our 2021 drill program both of these results demonstrate the excellent potential to expand this zone at depth and to the Southeast."

Benchmark Metals is focused on proving and developing the Lawyer's Gold-Silver Project in British Columbia's Golden Horseshoe.

Benchmark Metals (BNCH) is up 5.22 per cent and is currently trading at C$1.41 per share as of 9:53 am ET.
