Advancing Lawyers Gold-Silver Project Along The Path To Mine Permitting
Benchmark Metals Inc. (TSXV: BNCH) (OTCQX: BNCHF) has been granted a new five-year Work Permit by the Government of British Columbia for exploration and drilling to advance the Lawyers Gold-Silver Project.
CEO, John Williamson, said the new Work Permit encompasses an expanded scope and scale to explore existing and new targets across the project area.
Key components to the Work Permit include 620 drill-site locations and initial approval to reactivate the former mine road to provide improved access and efficiencies across the 145 sq. km land package.
The five-year Work Permit is granted to June 15, 2026 for exploration activities covering all key target areas on the property.
Benchmark’s 100% owned, flagship Lawyers Gold-Silver Project is road accessible and located within the Golden Horseshoe area of north-central British Columbia, Canada.
The Permit allows the Project to expand the deposit areas, drill new high-priority targets and advance engineering towards a Feasibility Study,” Mr Williamson said.
“The new Work Permit involved consultation with all stakeholders including First Nations and submission of detailed exploration plans with environmental and mitigation measures through a Wildlife Mitigation and Monitoring Plan.”
The scope and scale of the five-year permit provides for the following activities:
- 620 drill sites for drilling at key areas including Cliff Creek, Dukes Ridge, AGB and new regional targets;
- Additional ground geophysical surveys across target areas;
- Former mining road reactivation (pending additional approvals);
- Expanded camp and related facilities, and;
- Expanded fuel storage.
