Third Rig at Eastmain, Mineralised Tonalite at E Zone
Third drill rig on site adding to the two already in operation at Eastmain
Drilling capacity increased to c.1,500m/week - 38,000m drilled to date, on track to achieve the 2021 plan of 50,000m
Drilling targeting DHEM conductors down-plunge of A and C Zones and extensions to E Zone
Over 15,000 samples from 52 drillholes awaiting assays
New style of mineralisation discovered at E Zone associated with a tonalite intrusion located structurally between the Kotak and Mine trend with visible gold observed
Toronto, Ontario--(October 20, 2021) - Benz Mining Corp. (TSXV: BZ) (ASX: BNZ) (the Company or Benz) is pleased to provide an update on its 2021 drilling campaign. The third drill rig, originally booked for September, is now on site at Eastmain and drilling electromagnetic targets down-plunge from the existing resource.
CEO, Xavier Braud, commented: "The third rig we needed to accelerate our drilling program is now in operation at Eastmain. Our current drilling capacity has increased to ~1,500m per week which will see us achieve our original target of 50,000m of drilling this year. We currently have over 15,000 samples awaiting assay results. Turnaround time at the laboratory has been extremely slow especially with the need for metallic screen fire assays. The discovery of a new mineralised system with visible gold at E Zone is also very exciting and we look forward to sharpening our understanding of this new fertile system. Eastmain is still surprising us which augurs very well for the future."
