Onion Lake Area

Benton Resources has acquired a significant land package adjacent to the recent high-grade discovery by Magma Metals Ltd for which Magma was awarded the "Discovery of the Year Award," by the Northwestern Ontario Prospectors Association.  Benton has completed staking a large land position to the west of Magma Metals', Thunder Bay North Project where recent drilling intersected mineralization up to 5.61 grams per tonne Platinum + Palladium over 61.7m.  In addition, Benton's South Sibley Property shares the eastern border of Magma's ground. The Thunder Bay North property lies near the boundary between the Archaean granite-gneiss-greenstone terrain to the southwest and the Proterozoic Nipigon Plate to the northeast. In addition to Magma's Discovery, Kennecott Exploration Canada recently released results for a single drill hole along the same trend as Magma and Benton's Properties.  The results from this drillhole included: 10.9m of 2.25g/t Pt+Pd.

Benton has a joint venture with Glory Resources Ltd, on the Onion Lake Project.  Glory can earn a 30% interest by spending $700,000 and paying Benton $95,000 cash within 24 months.   After the initial earn-in, Glory can earn an additional 30% interest by spending a further $1.6 million in exploration during the third and fourth year with the right to earn an additional 10% by spending a further $1.5 million in exploration within eighteen months of the fourth anniversary.   The company has started initial prospecting and airborne geosphysics and will continue to explore the project for potential drill targets.
