Bedivere Gold Project

Benton has entered into an option to earn up to 100% of the high-grade Bedivere Gold Project. In 2016, the vendors of the project discovered spectacular visible gold near the shore of Bedivere Lake, now named the Traxxin Zone. Subsequent assays resulted in grades up to 41oz/t gold (1281g/t) in these grab samples. Benton acted quickly to acquire one of the newest discoveries in the region.

The Bedivere Project is located in Northwestern Ontario, within the Marmion batholith, between the 7.2M oz Hammond Reef Deposit and the 3.2M oz Moss Lake Deposit. Benton has increased its land package to over 4800 hectares to cover the prospective NE-oriented mineralized regional break/structure.

Since acquisition, Benton has prospected, completed over 1000 recce soil samples, flown a detailed Airborne Mag/EM surveys, cut grid lines, performed an IP survey over prospective zones, established access trails, trenched and completed three rounds of diamond drilling. Drilling has shown that gold occurs throughout the 20-30m wide quartz vein system which is open at depth.  Benton will focus future drilling to target the zone at depth, mainly below the higher grade intersections discovered by Benton's drilling: 3.37g/t Au over 5.7m, 4.76g/t Au over 3.8m, 3.43g/t Au over 7.4m (holes 5, 16, 22 respectively).
