Benchmark (BNCH) has discovered 66 m of 2.98 g/t AuEq expanding near surface mineralization at the AGB Zone.

The latest series of drill holes at AGB also resulted in 5 m of 15.31 g/t Au and 180.80 g/t Ag or 17.57 g/t AuEq in drill hole 20AGBDD039.

This drill hole was the farthest South of the 2020 campaign and returned high-grade gold and silver intervals beginning near to surface.

A broad zone of strong mineralization at the Southern extent of the AGB Zone remains open at depth and along strike.

Planning for the 2021 drill program is underway to target the zone's Southern extent for near surface, open-pittable gold and silver.

The Southern portion of the AGB Zone has seen very limited historical drilling, yet over 10 of Benchmark's drill holes in this region have intersected significant mineralization. 

John Williamson, Benchmark's CEO, commented,

"These drill results demonstrate strong continuity and higher-grade gold and silver material near surface. The results are providing a path to expand the AGB Zone to the South and to depth. This zone is showing potential to become a higher grade, initial open-pit mine that would return substantial economics in the opening years of a mining scenario."

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

Benchmark (BNCH) is up 5.60 per cent and is currently trading at C$1.32 per share as of 2:40 pm ET.
