Benjamin Hill Announces Completion of Drilling Camp for Proposed Fall Diamond Drilling Program at Alotta Copper-Gold Project in West-Central Yukon

By: Newsfile

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 5, 2023) - Benjamin Hill Mining Corp. (CSE: BNN) (OTCQB: BNNHF) ("Company") is pleased to announce camp construction has been completed to facilitate the requirements for a diamond drilling campaign proposed for this fall. The completion of the induced polarization survey confirmed a large chargeability anomaly over 2.0 kilometres long. The IP data outlined areas of high chargeability/moderated resistivities that are also coincident with the anomalous soil and geophysical anomalies.

Figure 1 below shows the plan of chargeability results from the 2D IP-Res model overlain by gold-in-soil and magnetic susceptibility (RTP). The dashed polyline highlights the area of greatest interest for further testing given the occurrence of favorable geochemical and geophysical anomalies. Diamond drill testing within this zone is recommended for further exploration to better understand the cause of the chargeability, elevated soil geochemistry, and relative magnetic lows.

Figure 2 outlines the initially proposed 4 NQ diamond drill holes, each testing to a 500-meter depth.

Key Points about the Alotta Project:

  • Similar geological setting to the Casino deposit, located 50 km south of Alotta. - Intrusive complex
  • Insitu Gold/Copper in-soil geochemical anomalies over 4.0 X 1.0 kilometers 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, the same company responsible for previous Casino exploration.
  • Archer Cathro has defined targets for drill testing. Initial proposal is 4 holes, each to 500 metre depths.
