Benton Resources Inc. (TSXV: BEX) has received further assay results from its recently completed Phase I drill programme at the company’s Great Burnt Copper deposit in south-central Newfoundland, Canada.
Benton’s latest three drill holes have expanded the continuity of the high-grade core along strike and down plunge, remaining open to further expansion. Hole GB-23-12, which cut 25.42m grading 5.51% Cu is considered to be near the core of the high-grade lens, which is the deepest high-grade drill intersection on the Great Burnt deposit to date.
An interval within this zone returned 8.77% Cu, 4.43g/t Au, 82.00g/t Ag and 1.12% Zn over 1.00m. In addition, holes GB-23-13 and GB-23-14 also intersected the copper-rich zone, which is believed to be the up dip and down dip extension of the lens.
The company continues to be very encouraged with the expansion of this high-grade system where it remains open up/down dip, down plunge, and along strike. Benton is looking forward to further results as they prepare for an upcoming drill programme with the objective of expanding and continuing to confirm and improve upon the known high grades within the deposit.
