Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - August 9, 2023) - Benjamin Hill Mining Corp. (CSE: BNN) (OTCQB: BNNHF) ("Company") is pleased to announce that 34-line kilometres of an induced polarization (IP) survey have been completed over an area containing coincident, gold-copper in soil anomalies, magnetic depletion, and total potassium highs on the company's Alotta Project. Preliminary IP data outlines areas of high chargeability/moderated resistivities that are also coincident with the anomalous soil and geophysical anomalies.

Key Points about the Alotta Project:

  • Similar geological setting to the Casino deposit, located 50 km south of Alotta.
  • Insitu Gold/Copper in-soil geochemical anomalies over 4.0 x 1.0 kilometres is larger than the current resource area of the Casino deposit.
  • Magnetic depletion coincident with gold/copper in soils anomalous geochemistry indicates the occurrence of a large, porphyry related hydrothermal system.
  • High total potassium counts from radiometric survey supports porphyry potential.
  • Preliminary IP survey results confirm the same area of interest as coincident soil geochemistry and geophysical anomalies.
  • Never drill tested, the project is now permitted for drill testing.
  • Management of the exploration project is being conducted by Archer Cathro and Associates.
  • Archer Cathro is currently developing a model to manipulate geophysical and geochemical data for the purpose of defining targets for drill testing.

Cole McClay, CEO of Benjamin Hill Mining Corp. states: "Systematic exploration of the Alotta Project has outlined coincident geochemical and geophysical anomalies that indicate the project's potential to host a large, bulk tonnage copper-gold porphyry deposit. We are looking forward to the next phase of exploration, and drill testing at Alotta."
