Benchmark Drills 15.00 Metres of 7.02 g/t Gold and 307.91 g/t Silver, Expanding Mineralization to over 500m Depth at Cliff Creek
Edmonton, Alberta--(December 8, 2020) - Benchmark Metals Inc. (TSXV: BNCH) (OTCQX: BNCHF) (WKN: A2JM2X) (the "Company" or "Benchmark") - is pleased to announce the deepest gold-silver mineralization intersected to date at the northern portion of the Cliff Creek deposit. Hole 20CCDD070 intersected significant mineralization at over 425m below surface, which extends the depth of the deposit by 50+ metres below the base of the open pit model and remains open. Further assay results are pending from a tier of holes that extend up to 100m beneath this hole, with the drill core showing similar alteration and visible gold-silver mineralization. The combined results have excellent potential to positively impact the future resource estimate and extent of the open pit model economics. Benchmark's flagship Lawyers Gold-Silver Project is located in a road-accessible area of the Golden Horseshoe in north-central British Columbia, Canada.
